Dame Helen Mirren looked radiant while collecting her Life Achievement Award at last night’s SAG Awards. Donning a head-to-toe look fit for royalty, Mirren paired her pale pink gown with a matching headband, chic silver updo and youthful rosy makeup, courtesy of celebrity makeup artist Jo Strettell. As the face of L’Oréal Paris’s Age Perfect Makeup collection, we’re not surprised every item from Mirren’s look can be picked up at the drugstore.

Strettell prepped Mirren’s skin using L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Rosy Tone Moisturizer ($20). Next, she applied Age Perfect Radiant Serum Foundation in Golden Beige ($17) all over the face, neck and ears and buffed it into skin using a buffing brush to achieve a “flawless, light and natural-looking face.” Along with SPF 50, the hydrating foundation includes vitamin B and an actual anti-aging serum for a plump, dewy-looking finish that won’t settle into fine lines. Next was the Age Perfect Radiant Concealer in Sand Sable ($14) on the under-eye area, around the nose and outside lip line “to lighten and brighten the skin.”

To create the accompanying eye look, Strettell applied the L’Oréal Paris Le Liner Signature Eye Liner in Taupe Grey Tweed ($9) along the upper and lower lash lines and smudged with an eyeliner brush to create a soft smoky liner. Next, she swept Brilliant Eyes Liquid Eyeshadow in Amethyst Quartz ($12) across Mirren’s lids and under the eye. She made sure to blend the edges to create a shimmery, soft smoky eye. “Retrace liner using a taupe-gray shimmery shadow to add dimension to the lash line,” advises Strettell. She then curled lashes and applied a layer of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara ($10). Finally, Strettell applied the creamy and nourishing L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Satin Lipstick in Plum Explosion to complete the look.
