Sure, Amber Heard is drop-dead gorgeous but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have a make-up artist on stand-by for Red Carpet events. We got some tips from her gal, Melanie Inglessis, who made-her up for the LA premiere of Magic Mike XXL. 

 Inspiration:

“I was inspired by the gorgeous color of Amber’s dress (a deep bright purple) and wanted to accentuate her eyes to compliment that color. Amber is so stunning that I never want to put much makeup on her.  Beautiful glowing skin and a smoky eye is what we settled on!”

Get the Look:

“I started by preparing Amber’s skin with Kate Somerville Quench Hydrating Face Serum, which feels so luxurious and silky on the skin and provides instant hydration.  I let it sit on the skin for a minute then sprayed a little rose water over it and blotted the excess with a tissue. Next, I applied Kate Somerville Nourish Daily Moisturizer to create a beautiful, hydrated complexion.

As a makeup base, I used Kate Somerville IllumiKate CC Cream.  This CC cream is perfect for someone who needs just a little coverage but maximum protection with a high SPF of 50. I powdered the T-zone only, as I wanted Amber to have a glow, with Make Up For Ever HD loose powder.

 I added a little freshness to the look by applying a cream bluster in coral/pink, just on the apple of the cheeks.

 For Amber’s smoldering smoky eyes, I started with Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream, shade 14, which a deep burgundy. I applied it all over the eyelids with a flat brush, blotting over the crease and the bottom lash line.

Using a crease brush, I worked the crease back and forth with YSL Ombres Duo Lumieres #33, the burgundy color is vibrant and has some shimmer in it which makes it easy to blend.  After creating depth in the lid, I brought the color under the bottom lash line to create a smoky look. 

I dabbed Make Up For Ever Poudre Irisee/Star Powder just in the center of the lid to catch that light and finished with two coats of black mascara on top and bottom lashes.

I left lips a very pretty, natural color, drawn with Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip in Nude Beige and topped with Terry Rose Balm.”

No word on whether her make-up stayed put during the steamy scenes in the move.
