Rosamund Pike: The Makeup Secrets

This weekend, as I scrolled through the pics from the Venice Film Festival, I came across the stunning Rosamund Pike wearing an amazing Gucci dress and remembered that my bestie, Miss Emma Day, had traveled across the continent to assist Rosamund with her glowing look.  For those of you not familiar with Emma Day, she is one of the UK’s leading makeup artists and is flown around the world to look after some of the biggest stars on planet earth. Yes, I do feel honoured to call her my friend. These friendships do have their benefits…like being able to share the secrets of the looks with all of you, my lovely readers! 

Emma gave me the low down on exactly how she made Rosamund Pike look so amazingly elegant! She is absolutely glowing and I had to know how to achieve that look for myself!

Take it away Emma…

“Rosamund has the most radiant skin you can imagine so I wanted to maintain that radiance by keeping her base very light with a Givenchy tinted mosituriser and Sisely eclat tenseur underneath to maintain that wonderful “gleam”. Rosamund is a massive fan of Sisley skincare, as am I , so we stuck to those for prepping the skin. I concealed with Laura Mercier secret camoflage under the eyes and around the nose, I powdered very minimally on her t – zone with the Givenchy Le Prism compact in “Blooming”. On her eyes I used Christian Dior’s summer palette in Chush glow which is a gorgeous mixture of golden browns with a pinky pearlised highlighter below the brows. I used black gel eyeliner and Hypnose Mascara from Lancome and and my favourite white Chanel eyeliner inside to make her eyes pop. I finished with a Dior silver pencil in the corner of her eyes. On her cheekbones I used Laura Mercier mineral illuminating powder and on the apples of a cheeks a Mac blush called Posy. On the lips I used a Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick in Darling. Ben Cooke, the celebrity hairdresser and all round lovely person did her hair and made special extensions for her and together we worked on a very polished and yet very sexy red-carpet look for her that was a move away from Rosamunds usual, more English style.”

Watch out for more tips from Lady Day…I’m even trying to convince her to give me a makeover…as I desperately need one these days!!!
