Of all the beauty looks sported State-side at the weekend, Ginnifer Goodwins soft, polished, peaches-and-cream make-up stood out a mile.
Is it the impeccable texture of the skin, the softly defined eyes or the peachy-golden glow holding the whole thing together that make her look so pretty? I dont care I just need to know how to do it myself. Right now.
Luckily, backstage make-up artist Georgina Graham was stuck at home with a cold yesterday so I cornered her for this step-by-step guide:
Next use a tinted moisturiser or a very sheer, light-reflecting foundation (I really like Chantecaille Future Skin Gel Foundation [£47.96]) and work the product in with your fingers for a natural, hydrated look.
Use an illuminating concealer I love Guerlains version under the eyes and out towards temples to brighten and open that area.
Using a soft, round-tipped brush, do a colour wash using a pale gold shadow or cream. Place the product on the lid then blend it right up to the brow bone it should get sheerer, the higher you go. MAC Eye Shadow in Nylon [£9.79] is a pale, frosty gold thats an almost exact shade for the one you can see here.
Use a black eyeliner pen to draw a thin line along your upper lashes and slightly beyond the natural eye shape. Use one hand to hold your temple and pull your eye in to a more feline shape and the other to follow the line youve created with your pen. Once the liners dry, take a Q-tip and smudge it down just a little so it looks softer. Finish by using a bronze eyeliner to create a soft line under your lower lashes. Estée Lauder and Shu Uemura both do good ones.
Now thats just peachy.
