If there's one star we can always count on for high-glamour makeup inspiration, it's Bitten actress Laura Vandervoort! The 30-year-old Torontonian is a red carpet regular and she never fails to make her appearances memorable ones with the help of a bold satorial choice and equally dramatic makeup. At the Humane Society of The United States Benefit in Los Angeles on May 16, Laura wore an incredible embroidered cornflower blue gown, which she paired with a vintage-inspired updo and pin-up beauty look.
Laura's makeup look is a timeless classic, combining a flawless porcelain complexion, thick cat eye liner, defined brows, and matte red lips. If you're looking to make a statement with your makeup, then you can't go wrong with copying Laura's look. So, here's how:
Begin with a perfecting primer, applying a thin layer over your regular moisturizer. Then, use a brush to apply a medium-coverage matte foundation to even out your skin tone. If needed, pin point conceal any problem areas by tapping the product directly over the area you want to cover. Finish with a light disting of powder.
Use a brow pencil to define the shape of your brows. Next, apply a wash of shimmery cream eyeshadow on the inner corners and lids. Choose a pale pink-brown shade to work into your creaseline and up toward the brow bone. Next, line your eyes with black liquid liner, working from the inner corner and thickening the line as you move outward, then ending in a classic cat eye flick. Complete your eye makeup with two coats of mascara.
After exfoliating and moisturizing your lips, fill them in with a matte red lipstick. Done!
