Celebrity makeup artist Jenn Streicher created a “pretty and natural” look for actress Elisabeth Moss at the Beverly Hills screening of Truth earlier this month.
The focus? Luminous, bronzer-free skin and soft brown eyes. Rachel Marie Walsh reports.
Glowing, Photo-ready Skin
The night before the premiere, Moss applied RéVive Glycolic Renewal Cream Professional System, €215, to exfoliate and help reveal brighter, healthier skin.
This product consists of a glycolic acid gel and a jar of cleansing pads soaked in antioxidant extracts and more glycolic acid.
While this clearly works wonders for the star, a good glycolic acid treatment does not need to cost this much.
DHC Renewing AHA Cream, €41.95@ www.feelunique.com , is great.
Further, sensitive or acne-prone skin is often intolerant of such a potent exfoliant. Salicylic acid gels are gentler.
To prep the skin the night-of, Streicher first used RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream, €119, to nourish and hydrate the skin and then applied RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Eye Cream, €102.
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Radiance, €42, smoothed Moss’ skin and was followed with Laura Mercier Silk Crème Oil-Free Photo Edition Foundation in Rose Ivory, €48. Both products contain light-diffusing pigments that photograph extremely well.
Streicher then swept Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Praline, €30, on the apples of the cheeks and up the cheekbones.
To illuminate the skin, she applied a small amount of Laura Mercier Face Illuminator in Indiscretion, €40, to the cheekbones and on the forehead.
A dusting of Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder, €42, all over the actress’ face set the makeup.
Streicher first applied Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Vanilla Nuts, €27, all over the eye lid.
She then swept Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Fresco, €27, a colour she referred to as a “subdued, warm suede brown,” over top of the lids, almost down to the lashline, fading it slightly as she went down. She blended the same product in Truffle, €27, into the crease.
To give Moss’ eyes some depth, Streicher applied Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Black Ebony, €29, right on the lash line, keeping it very subtle and almost unnoticeable.
She then used Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette, €30, to fill in and define the actress’ brows. Lastly, she applied several coats of Laura Mercier Waterproof Mascara, €27.
Light, Neutral Lips
Streicher applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Lychee Parfait, €30, to the lips with a lip brush, creating a light wash of colour.
