Great Make-up: Salma Hayek

First off, was there ever any doubt that Salma Hayek has great make-up? Second, I got a request for a breakdown on her gorgeous look. So without any witticisms, as I have none, here it is!


Recommended Products:

  • Chanel Teinte Innocence
  • Maybelline Dream Matte Powder
  • Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat (optional)
  • Make-up Forever Full Cover concealor
  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  • NYX Doll Eyes mascara
  • MAC Girlie eyeshadow 
  • MAC Wedge eyeshadow
  • MAC Carbon eyeshadow
  • MAC Brule eyeshadow
  • Anastasia brow pencil
  • Physician's Formula Bronze Booster in Medium to Dark
  • MAC Hug Me (If you can get your hands on Estee Lauder Vanilla Truffle lipstick, you should grasp it with all your strength. It is the a very accurate replica of Salma's lipstick)
  • Chanel Sunset Gold glossimer
Recommended Tools:
  • Sonia Kashuk Blending Sponge/Mac 187 brush
  • MAC 242 brush for concealor
  • MAC 239 brush
  • MAC 219 brush
  • MAC 129 brush

Face:
After prepping your skin with moisturizer and under eyes with eye cream, stipple on Chanel Teinte Innocence and blend in to your skin. Apply in as sheer layers as possible so that you have more control.

Concealor:
Apply Make-up Forever Full Cover Concealor on problem areas such as your under eyes, sides of the nose, etc and blend using the MAC 242 brush.

Powder:
Lightly dust Maybelline Dream Matte Powder to set your foundation and concealor.

Eyes:
Prep eyes for make-up with Too Faced Shadow Insurance. 

Eyebrows:
Brush your brows and enhance them with Anastasia Brow Pencil. Salma's eyebrows are lush, so to emulate start by gently enhancing the section of your brows nearest to the nose. As you get to the arch, put less pressure and colour on the brows.

Shadow:
Pat MAC Girlie to your lid with the MAC 239, stop when you reach the crease. With the MAC 217, blend the shadow to slightly above the crease.

Crease:
Blend in MAC Wedge to the outer 'v' of your eyes. Don't pack on too much shadow as the shadow in the outer 'v' isn't very severe and is on the subtle side. Remember to blend it out slightly but don't blend it out too high into the brow bone.

Highlighter:
Apply MAC Brule eyeshadow onto the brow bone and blend into the crease.

Eyeliner:
Rim the top lid with eyeliner by making a thin line and following the contours of your lid. Then, take the MAC 219 brush, dip it in MAC Carbon, and go over the liner on your top lid. Gently make the edges of your liner smudgey. Line your bottom lid as close to the lash line as possible.

Mascara:
Curl lashes and apply two coats of mascara to your top and bottom lashes.

Cheeks:
Apply Physician's Formula Bronze Booster on the cheekbone.

Lips:Apply MAC Hug Me to the lips and top it off with Chanel Sunset Gold glossimer.

Hey....

Like your blog.

So... I was wondering what your suggestions are for makeup for an indian skin tone. I am looking for a coral nude lipstick... like Nars Blonde Venus but with more pigment. What do you suggest?

Salma never does disappoint.

Do you think one could accomplish this look on their own, or would we need a makeup artist on hand?
