New Beauty Breakdown! Emily Blunt at the Harper’s Bazaar Woman of the Year Awards

Emily Blunt, Harper’s Bazaar, Woman of the Year

Makeup by Florrie White

English actress Emily Blunt looked spectacular on the red carpet last week at the Harper’s Bazaar Woman of the Year Awards in London. Her makeup artist was none other than MM favourite, Florrie White. Here’s the breakdown of what she used for the soft yet glamorous look:

“Emily Blunt was wearing a dramatic floor length warm orange Alexander McQueen dress with a bejewelled halter neck, and she wanted to keep the make-up simple yet beautiful to work with the dress. So I created a warm make-over focusing on the warmth of the skin and enhancing her beautiful eyes.

She had just come off set from the new action film she is starring in with Tom Cruise where she is playing a very physical part. I cleansed her skin with Decleor Cleansing water and then soothed it with Decleor Life Radiance. Her lips were quenched with Dr. Lipp balm for lips. I then applied Givenchy Acti-Mine primer in Mango over her cheekbones and temples. Over this I evened out her skin tone with Chanel Perfection Lumiere Long Wear foundation, mixing shades 30/40. I then banished any shadows under her eyes with Bobbi Brown Eye Brightener and a little more Bobbi Brown concealer around her nose.

For her eyes I applied Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow in Beach Honey in the inner corner of her eyes, sweeping it across the top lid, up into the crease. I then applied Chantecaille Shine Eye Shade in Rose Quartz mid way across the crease, blending it out to far edges of her eyelid. I also applied this shade over the top lashes, blending it out. I swept Chantecaille’s Rose Gold over the top of the lashline creating a smudged out line giving definition to the eye, I also blended it softly under the lower lashline. I enhanced this soft line by applying Mac Twinks with a very fine slanted brush into the lashline. Eyelashes were curled then accentuated with Stila Forever Your Curl mascara.

Using a large bronzer brush I swept Shiseido Bronzer in 2 from the apples of her cheekbones up to her temples, then dusting over her nose and lightly down over her chin. I also brought this warmth from the bronzer over her forehead and into her hairline creating a really warm glow.

I lined her lips with Revlon lipliner in Nude and then applied Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited lipstick in Beige Darling. The look was set with Sisley Pressed Powder in Transparent Matte.”

London makeup artist Florrie White was looking after the two Victoria’s Secret angels last week, and gave them both bombshell screen siren red pouts, with the help of Burberry Beauty. On Rosie, she used Burberry Lip Definer in Brick Red no 5, and Rosy Red lipstick no. 5. Candice got a mixture of Burberry lipsticks in Union Red no 17, and Hibiscus no 20. Talk about a pair of 1930’s femme fatales!

New Beauty Breakdown: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley at the Burberry Show, LFW Spring Summer 2012

Makeup by Florrie White

We all know that Rosie H-W is, quite frankly, a goddess. Whiplash hair, feline eyes, that incredible Victoria’s Secret body. She’s enough to make grown men cry and make Angelina Jolie look like, well a bit of a moose. (Sorry Angelina).

When I saw pictures of her at the Burberry show last week in London, and at Mario Testino’s 1930’s party that night (but more on that later), I had to find out what her makeup look was. So I emailed her makeup artist, Florrie White, for the inside scoop.

As Rosie is the face of Burberry Florrie was able to choose whatever she wanted from the gorgeous new Burberry makeup line (an MM fave, if you hadn’t already gathered), to perfect that already pretty damn near perfect face. Here’s what Florrie used:

Skincare

  • Decleor Harmonie Calm and Neroli Oil

Foundation

  • Burberry Sheer Foundation in 04/05

Concealer

  • Burberry Sheer Concealer no 02

Cheeks

  • Burberry Warm Glow

Eyes

  • Burberry Midnight Brown eye pencil
  • Burberry Sheer Eyeshadows in Midnight Brown and Chestnut
  • Burberry Effortless Mascara in Black

Lips

  • Burberry Lip Definer in Nude Beige 01
  • Burberry Lip Mist in 01
