Steal the Look: Gugu Mbatha-Raw at the Belle premiere in New York City

bellepremiereCelebrity makeup artist Nick Barose created the gorgeous, glowing look of Gugu Mbatha-Raw using Juara skincare products for her red carpet premiere of ‘Belle’ earlier this week in New York City.

Gugu was wearing a green dress with a princess-like golden sheen. “Her jewelry has purple tones to it, so we went with a subtle eye incorporating purple but keeping it soft. The whole look tonight is fresh, spring, sun kissed skin with soft, plum smokey eyes and peach lips and cheeks,” Barose says.

Barose began by prepping Gugu’s skin with the Juara Tamarind Tea Hydrating Toner, which gave her a bit of hydration. “Since the weather’s getting warmer, I used Juara’s Sweet Black Tea & Ginger Mattefying Moisturizer to keep the skin from turning oily on the red carpet. I massaged it into her skin thoroughly using my fingertips and let it absorb. Even though the product is great at controlling oils, it still leaves the skin supple and creates the perfect canvas for makeup. Next, I gently massaged in Juara’s Sweet Black Tea Eye Crème to prep under the eyes and on the lids, and then blotted with a tissue.”

Barose created soft, plum smokey eyes using the Tom Ford Eyes Colour Palette in Lavender Lust. “To add lift and elongate her eye shape, I applied two coats of Votre Vu’s Eiffel Power mascara, concentrating on the outer corners,” says Barose who for her lips,  applied Chanel’s Glossimer in 119, a soft, peachy tone gloss.

“Since she wore a sleeveless dress and the weather is a bit warmer, I gently massaged the Juara Tiare Jasmine Tea Body Milk into her shoulders and arms. Body milk is perfect for warmer weather since it’s not too thick, gives the perfect amount of hydration and brings out a subtle sheen in the warmer weather, whereas a regular body moisturizer or crème would be too heavy.”

Love the look! How are you adapting your look to the warmer weather?
