Reese Witherspoon At The Academy Awards — Her Exact Makeup
Makeup artist Molly Stern wanted Reese to have healthy, radiant skin.
Here’s the exact look:
“To prep the face, Stern first massaged RéVive Intensité Moisture Serum Extrême Complete Hydration, ($365) to recharge Witherspoon’s face and give it a boost of extra hydration. She lightly applied RéVive Intensité Crème Lustre Day Firming Moisture Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen, ($385) to give the skin a dewy luminosity.
Stern then applied NEW Laura Mercier Silk Crème Moisturizing Photo Edition Foundation in Suntan, ($48), to ensure Witherspoon’s complexion was “natural and fresh-looking.” She used a shade darker than usual to give the actress’ skin a “warmed up sun-smooched feeling.”
Using Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Highlighter & Shader Duet in Intensity One, ($77), Stern defined Witherspoon’s bone structure by darkening the hollows of her cheeks. Then, she applied Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Lovely, ($56) on the apples of her cheeks to create a “soft, subtle flush.””
For her “matte and neutral eyes,” she “shaded and softly smoked them out with nude tones all over the lids, blending into the crease to create depth without darkness.
She began by applying Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Café Au Lait, ($24) as a base and then layered Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Truffle, ($24) on top.
Next, she blended the two hues, keeping the depth of colour at the base of the eyes and buffed the outer edges, giving the eyes a soft richness.
She then deepened the lash line by mixing Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Noir, ($24) and Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Coffee Ground, ($24), which intensified Witherspoon’s blue eyes.
Using Clé de Peau Beauté Intensifying Cream Eyeliner No.103, ($60), she darkened Reese’s eyebrows, providing added definition.
For the final touch of glamour on the eyes, Stern curled the actress’ eyelashes with the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, ($29), and coated her lashes twice using Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara in Black, ($25). To give the lashes a softer intensity, she painted highlights into the lashes using a brown mascara.”
For her “fresh, bright nude lips,” Molly used NEW Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour in Nude Rose, ($28) on the lips to create the base and then added Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Peche, ($27), which added a “hint of light brightness.””
Reese Witherspoon’s Glowing Skin
For a sun-kissed glow, Molly used St. Tropez One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion, ($18) on Reese’s décolletage and arms for a “rich golden base for her skin.”
