Celebrity: Claire Danes
Makeup ArtistMatin Maulawizada
Brand: Laura Mercier 

Claire Danes glided down the red carpet of the SAG Awards last night in a stunning Vionnet gown. While the seasoned starlet stunned in the shimmery number, it was her romantic smoky makeup look that truly made the full look outstanding. 

Global Brand Ambassador for Laura Mercier, Matin Maulawizada was inspired by the glimmering 1980s and the blue smoky tones that were signature to the decade. Using an array of Laura Mercier's fabulous products, Matin created a look that I will surely recreate in the near future. 

Beginning with skincare, Matin detailed the full look below: 

Prep (skincare) -- Properly prepping and hydrating the skin is essential in any beauty look. Matin began by moisturizing skin with Laura Mercier Mega Moisturizing Creme SPF 15 (Normal/Combination Skin) and a blend of Laura Mercier Repair Eye Serum & Repair Eye Cream. Once properly hydrated, Matin massaged Claire's face with Laura's Foundation Primer. Not only does this relax the skin and offer a bit of a spa touch, but layering a light primer under foundation allows for a more even canvas. 

Face -- For an even complexion, Matin applied Laura Mercier's Creme Smooth Foundation (Sunny Beige) onto skin, slightly contouring the face as he blended. To bring out Claire's skin's natural radiance, he blended the same product in Warm Ivory

Cheeks -- For perfectly flushed sun-kissed cheeks, Matin blended Laura Mercier Creme Cheek Color (Rosebud) and concentrated a touch of the same product in Sunrise to the apple of the cheeks. To bring out the cheekbones, her ran Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder (Highlight 01) along the tops of her cheeks. 

To set the skin, a light dusting of Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder (Universal) was applied. 

Eyes -- For the modernized and sexy take on the smoky eye, Matin began by lining Claire's lash line with Laura Mercier Creme Eye Liner (Cobalt). For the bold shadow, layering color was key. He applied Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour (Smoke) all over the lid. In the same fashion, he layered Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour (Mystical). For the third and final layer of color, Matin applied Laura Mercier Satin Matte Eye Colour (Dark Spirit). 

For an added dimension of drama, Matin dusted Claire's lids in a light layer of loose, blue glitter. While the actual product was unavailable, Matin suggests using Laura Mercier Sequin Eye Colour in Lapis for a similar look. 

Finally, Claire's lashes were coated in Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara (Bleu) to accentuate her lashes/eyes. 

Lips-- To get the perfect pout, Matin swiped Claire's lips in Laura Mercier Lip Plumper in Pink Pearl for a perfect glamorous touch. 

The perfect way to sport a blue toned smoky eye look, Matin masterfully created a look that is both elegant and wearable. Would you try this look at home?
