“I have always thought that Elizabeth looks a lots like a young Jane Fonda, so I used Jane Fonda from Barbarella as a reference for the makeup — a strong brow, a black line on the eye and the rest of the face left neutral and glowing,” explains Fiona. “It was Jane Jetson meets Barbarella with a dash of the Valley of the Dolls!”
- “I started by prepping her skin and doing a lip scrub.
- After moisturizing I applied Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #5.5, Tarte Maracuja Concealer in Medium, Benefit Sun Beam Highlighter along the bridge of the nose and NARS Cap Vert Bronzer Stick under the cheekbones.
- I set everything with CHANEL Natural Finish Loose Powder in #30. A dusting of Edward Bess Blush in Monte Carlo, a luminous peach shade, added a healthy glow to the cheeks.
- I used Anastasia Brow Wiz in Medium Ash to fill in the brows, giving them a bit of definition and length. For the eyes, I used Three Custom Color Cool Camel Eyeshadow over the whole lid and then the Warm Pebble shade in the crease and under the lower lashes.
- On the top lid I used a black pencil to line the eye and then used MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack over that since the gel liners don’t budge once they’re on. I applied Lancôme Virtuose Mascara in Black, and added some individual lashes to open up the eyes and add flirty length.
- A warm peach on the lips, Chantecaille Brilliant Gloss in Folly, was the perfect complement to her golden sun kissed skin.”
- Elizabeth’s bronze skin is due to her St. Tropez spray tan by Skin Finishing Expert Fiona Locke. Two Fiona’s prepped this star!
- Adir began by applying Fekkai Ironless Straightening Balm from the roots to the ends of wet hair. He then blow-dried the hair with a round brush until it was completely straight.
- Adir backcombed the top of the hair to add height and then smoothed it back into a sixties half back style. He secured the hair with a few bobby pins.
- To give the hair a mirror finish, Adir applied Fekkai Advanced Brilliant Glossing Cream to the ends of the hair. He finished the look by spraying Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray for an all night hold, with a natural feel.
