Why Not Try It This Week: Julianne Hough’s Soft Smoky Eye and Peach BlushAug 11, 2013 @ 10:00 am
Julianne Hough was glowing at the Los Angeles premiere of Paradise, and we think her effortless smoky eye combined with her pop of color blush would make for a perfect low-key office look. Her russet-toned eye was the focal point, and was balanced by clean skin and a soft pink lip. Hough’s makeup artist Mai Quynh began by applying Laura Mercier’s Oil-Free Supreme Foundation ($45; lauramercier.com) all over to impart a flawless finish, then blended Illamasqua’s cream blush in Rude ($26; sephora.com) onto the apples of her cheeks. She then emphasized the star’s cheekbones with NARS’ Bronzer in Laguna ($36; narscosmetics.com) to create a slight contour before moving onto the eyes. “I used the Dolce & Gabbana Eye Colour Quad in Contrasts 140 ($59; saks.com). I applied the peach color to the inner lid, and mixed the plum and brown colors before applying along her lash line and lid,” Quynh said. “Then, I blended the darker shadow into Julianne’s crease, and continued the plum and brown colors along the lower lash line.” As a finishing touch, Quynh swept on Lancome’s Definicils Mascara in black ($27; lancome-usa.com), and gave the star a sheer petal lip with Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine in Interlude ($33; chanel.com).
