Steal the look: Emily VanCamp at the Captain America Premiere
Whether you love watching her get Revenge or not, Emily VanCamp is adorable (I’ve loved her since Brothers & Sisters!)
Celebrity makeup artist Rosie Johnston used Votre Vu products to create this sexy and sophisticated look on Emily VanCamp for
last night’s red carpet premiere of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
For Emily’s look, Rosie took inspiration from her dress which was a short Monique Lhuillier frock with long sleeves. “It’s very sexy, but very demure and classic at the same time.”
Rosie said she and Emily wanted to do something that was sleek, modern, yet sophisticated.
Last night’s cool used Emily’s eyes as a focal point.
“We went for a not so traditional smokey eye paired with really nude lips,” Rosie says.
Rosie began by applying Votre Vu’s Champagne Kisses to Emily’s lips to prep them for the lipstick later on. The lip balm is infused with Vitamin E and champagne grape seed oil so it intensely moisturizes the lips and creates a great base for lipstick.
Rosie kept Emily’s skin looking super fresh and clean using a combination of Kevyn Aucoin and Chanel foundations. To add a subtle flush to her cheeks, Rosie used Votre Vu’s Vu-On Rouge in Bouquet Rose and applied it using a foundation brush on the apples of her cheeks and blending up a little.
To prep the eyes and make the colors pop, Rosie first applied Votre Vu’s Lingerie Pour Les Yeux in Light all over Emily’s lids. Then she went in with the nude-bronze shade from the Palette Play in Copper and swept that all over the lid. Focusing next on the eyeliner, Rosie took the Le Joli Crayon in Charbonand lined her eyes with it. To smoke out the liner, Rosie then took the deep violet and black shades from the Palette Play in Violette and blended out the liner using a flat, wide eye shadow brush. “The eye shadow palette is amazing; the colors are so gorgeous and really created the look we were going for.” To finish off the eyes, Rosie applied lots of individual lashes and then three coats of Votre Vu’s Eiffel Power to give volume and length.
For her brows, using Arch de Triumphe in Warm and an angled brush, Rosie filled in Emily’s brows, combed them out, and then filled them in again, repeating this step 3 times for a “natural, yet defined look.”
“We always try to keep Emily’s look soft and sexy, but with a little bit of edge.”
As for Emily’s hair — usually one for the dramatics, it was all about the smooth and soft look last night. The artist behind Emily’s hair tonight? One of her biggest fans, Celebrity Stylist David Gardner.
“Emily has gorgeous hair – her dress tonight is a showstopper and she is such a natural beauty that I decided to make the hair soft and touchable to allow that to shine through. I wanted to give her a silky straight blowout with some volume at the root that would move with her as she walked the red carpet,” said Gardner.
Here’s David’s tips to get the look at home:
- After using a wide tooth comb (like I did on Emily’s wet hair), flip your head over and apply an egg-sized amount of the Herbal Essences Naked Volumizing Souffle into roots, work through hair. Flip head back over, add a bit more to the hairline for additional volume and lift.
- Section hair from ear to ear around the back of your head, pin the top section up. Start from the back, blow dry hair straight using a large round brush to give it more body and movement. Continue to work through each section, blow drying with the round brush (I always make sure to blow dry at the hairline), the texture in that area can be different from the rest of the hair. The Volumizing Souffle is great for keeping this area smooth the entire night.
- Post-blowout, spray Herbal Essences Naked Sheer Shine Mist to give hair a light touchable shine. Put hair into large Velcro rollers – one away from the face on the top, one on the crown, one on each side and two in the back. Once the rollers are in place, spray whole head with Herbal Essences Naked Flexible Hold Spritzer to keep the lift in the roots without leaving the hair stiff or sticky.
- After makeup and wardrobe, take out the rollers, brush through and done! Sleek, sophisticated and gorgeous style!
