Zoe Saldana Star Trek Into Darkness

Zoe looked amazing at the ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ premiere at the Empire Leicester Square Cinema in London on May 2. We chatted with her makeup artist to reveal her exact beauty look!

Zoe Saldana‘s makeup was flawless at the London premiere of her upcoming film Star Trek Into Darkness. We chatted EXCLUSIVELY with celebrity makeup artist Vera Steimberg, who created her red carpet look, about the products and techniques used!

Zoe Saldana At ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ — Inspiration Behind Her Beauty Look

“The inspiration for Zoe’s look came from the amazing, glamourous dress she was wearing. It really brought us to a 20’s period style. It was her dress that really made me decide to go with a red lip — I knew it was going to look fabulous!” Vera spilled to EXCLUSIVELY.

We were also pleasantly surprised to know that Zoe was very interested and involved with her look!

“Zoe loves getting involved in the looks! She likes dressing up and making a story with the dress, makeup and hair. She enjoys every moment!”

Vera also shared her favorite makeup brand and top tips so you can get the look at home!

“I love Laura Mercier because it has something for everyone; they are a great go-to for natural, flawless makeup.”

“For this particular look, choose a good, fun red lipstick that you truly love and then use soft eye colors or just mascara on the top and bottom lashes. You could also use just Vaseline or an eight hour cream to create a natural shine on the eye lids. Then finish the look with just a bit of blush and some powder.”

To make the lips really stand out, Vera applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Color in Portofino Red on her lips, giving her a “bright, yet elegant final look.”

With such a dramatic lip, the eyes needed to be much “softer.” Vera used Laura Mercier Crème Eye Liner in Espresso to define the lash line using the Laura Mercier Angled Eye Liner Brush.

On the lid, she applied Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Terracota all over and then added Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Violet Sky on the outer corners to create a subtle smokey eye.

For added contour, Vera mixed Laura Mercier Luster Eye Colour in Bamboo and Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Coffee Ground and applied to the eyelids.

For stunning lashes, Vera used multiple coats of Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara in Black to top and bottom lashes.

For a flawless face, Vera wanted a “natural” look. She used Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-6 to cover imperfections.

After, she lightly dusted Laura Mercier Mineral Illuminating Powder in Candlelight to set her face. To finish the look, Vera applied Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Blaze to her cheekbones and layered Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Spiced Cider on top for an extra pop of color.
