Mandy Moore is a glowing goddess. When she’s not rocking insanely realistic aging prosthetics, the actress knows how to work a red carpet — even in an L.A. heatwave — proof that she has one of the best makeup games on the planet. Naturally, Moore did just that for the Darkest Minds premiere on Thursday, July 26, in a simple bronzed and matte look created by makeup artist Jenn Streicher.
Luckily for Us, Streicher exclusively shared her tips with the team here at Stylish for creating a sweltering weather-proof beauty look beginning with this clutch bit of advice: “I started with the eyes first, so if we didn’t like it, we could easily start over.” Streicher applied a white matte liquid eyeliner to Moore’s peepers winging it out at ends. Then, instead of eyeshadow, Streicher swept a Charlotte Tilbury blush across the This Is Us actress’ lids before adding a couple of coats of black mascara.
But because the weather was so steamy, Streicher opted to keep the skin matte, starting with a shine-free foundation. To make the “Candy” singer’s skin extra luminous and goddess-like, the makeup artist then applied Victoria’s Secret Bombshell Body Leg Lust Perfecting Leg Shine to highlight her collarbone and decollete for a sultry effect without adding glitter.
Then to finish the look (and in keeping with the all-matte theme), Streicher applied Victoria’s Secret Velvet Matte Cream Lip Stain in Adored to Moore’s pout with the applicator, but then dabbed it out for a more natural effect. “I love the neutral shade and how it matched the color I swept over her lids,” said Streicher.
And there you have it, a quick matte summer glow that you know will outlast the unbearable heat.
