Michelle Williams looked fresh faced and flawless at the London premiere of her new film, Oz the Great and Powerful, this week. We asked her makeup artist, Sabrina Bedrani, to give us the scoop on her premiere beauty.
“My inspiration for the look always comes from the dress,” makeup pro Sabrina Bedrani said of Michelle Williams‘ Burberry Prorsum gown. “Michelle was wearing a very colorful Burberry peacock feather dress, so I wanted to show some versatility in her makeup.”
Bedrani primarily used Laura Mercier cosmetics to create the look.
The eyes were the main focus of Williams’ makeup, complete with a lot of sultry color and mascara. First, Bedrani lined Williams’ upper and lower lash lines with Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Smoke ($24). Then, she used the same product in Grey Pearl ($24) on the lids for a brightening effect.
On to the eyebrows: Bedrani used Laura Mercier Eye Brow Pencil in Fair Blonde ($22) and Laura Mercier Eye Brow Gel ($20) to fill in Williams’ brows and define the shape. Finally, she added two coats of Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara ($24) to both the top and bottom lashes.
Bedrani kept Williams’ face “fresh and youthful” by first applying Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation in Cream Ivory ($43) to even out the actress’ complexion. She then added a few dabs of Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-1 ($30) to conceal imperfections and a dusting of Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder ($35) to set the look.
Finally, she added Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Heather Pink ($24) to the star’s cheeks for a healthy glow.
Bedrani topped off the look with a dab of Laura Mercier Lip Stain in Scarlet ($20).
“[I used it to] complement the hue of the dress,” the stylist said.
