LIPS: Deep red lips gave a “pop to the entire look”


·         Steimberg applied Laura Mercier Stickgloss Lip Colour in Cranberry ($22) to Saldana’s lips. She noted that it was the perfect red to complement the rest of the makeup and that there was no better place to “rock” a red lip than France.

·         Next, she applied Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour in Fire Glow ($24) under Saldana’s eyes, close to her lashes to give her a “golden luminescent colour.”

·         For added definition, Steimberg applied a combination of Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour inFire Glow ($24) and Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Cocoa ($24) to the tops of Saldana’s eyelids.

·         She added the final touch of glamour by applying multiple coats of Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara in Black ($24) to the actress’ top and bottom lashes, along with a few individual faux lashes.


FLAWLESS FACE: Illuminated, flawless skin


·         Steimberg covered minor imperfections using Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-6 ($30)and then applied Laura Mercier Secret Concealer in #3 underneath Saldana’s eyes.

·         Next, she lightly dusted Laura Mercier Mineral Illuminating Powder in Candlelight ($32) all over the star’s face to create a natural glow.

·         Lastly, Steimberg applied Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Rosebud ($24) to the apples of Saldana’s cheeks to give her a natural, soft flush of colour.
