MAKEUP: Marie Antoinette

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

When Lancome asked me to do a makeup look inspired by a modern day Marie Antoinette I jumped at the chance! Growing up, I obsessed over Isabella Rossellini’s Lancome ads and I have been equally smitten with the latest face of Lancome, the incomparable Lupita Nyong’o! Here is the makeup look I created - another excellent last minute Halloween costume idea!

Products Used:
Hypnôse Drama Waterproof Mascara *
Auda[City] in Paris Palette *
L'Absolu Rouge Définition Lipstick in Le Carmin *
Sourcils Gel Eyebrow Gel-Cream in Blonde *
Sourcils Gel Dual End Eyebrow Brush *
Blush Subtil in Rose Paradis *

    I love the detail of the rose to remind of the famous portrait by Vigée Lebrun ♥

  11. I loooveeee this!! Your hair and makeup look incredible, and of course dressing up like Marie Antoinette is a dream come true. Also not sure if you know this already, but Lisa Eldridge (queen of makeup) is the creative director for Lancome and she did a Marie Antoinette tutorial for Halloween too! Here's the link if you haven't seen it - I'm basically in love with her!
