Cannes 2013: Zoe Saldana Brings Out Her Inner Audrey Hepburn

By  May 21, 2013

Looks like Lt. Uhura took a sabbatical from the box office to enjoy the Cannes Film Festival. Zoe Saldana swapped out her Star Trek uniform for a gorgeous gray Valentino gown for the premiere of Blood Ties with Clive Owen and Marion Cotillard. Saldana’s makeup artist, Vera Steimberg, shared how she channeled Hepburn’s romantic look for the red carpet with Glam so you can achieve the look from home:

Steimberg started by covering any imperfections with the Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-6 and brightened Saldana’s eyes with the Secret Concealer in 3 under her eyes. Next she lightly dusted the Mineral Illuminating Powder in Candlelight all of the star’s face for a natural glow before adding a flush to her cheek with the Crème Cheek Colour in Rosebud. For the bedroom eyes, Steimberg lined her eyes with the Crème Eye Liner in Noir, using the Angled Eye Liner Brush to extend it outwards. She then applied the Illuminating Eye Colour in Fire Glow to her lower lash line for a “golden luminescent color.” Next she applied a combination of the same shadow and the Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Cocoa to the tops of Saldana’s eyelids for added definition. She then applied multiple coats of the Faux Lash Mascara in Black to the top and bottom lashes with a few individual faux lashes added in. To polish the pout and complete the look, Steimberg applied the Stickgloss Lip Colour in Cranberry, noting there was no better place to rock a red lip than France.
