Transform into the queen of Halloween beauty by reviving the allure of Marie Antoinette. Pamper yourself the French royal way, with makeup tips from Nordstrom Beauty Stylist, Alexander Ross.
Signature Look – Flawless Porcelain Skin
Start by cleansing and moisturizing the skin. “Create a flawless face by concealing any dark spots and under eye shadows,” says Ross, who is based out of the Nordstrom Durham, North Carolina store. “Try Estée Lauder Smoothing Creme Concealer in Smooth Ivory and apply around the inner corners of the eye, near the nose, and under the eye area.”
This look is all about the sunless parasol-carrying glow. Ross suggests using an oil-free highlighter like Yves Saint Laurent ‘Teint Parfait’ Complexion Enhancer in Radiant Mauve, followed by NARS Sheer Matte Foundation in Siberia. “Set the foundation with Trish McEvoy ‘Professional’ Powder Puff, then powder the whole face with Laura Mercier Mineral Finishing Powder. I prefer a rock ‘n’ roll technique with the puff, which means not wiping the face, but pressing and rolling the puff for a full application of powder,” adds Ross.
Halloween is traditionally characterized by dark makeup colors, so your porcelain complexion will surely put you in a league of your own.
