Reese Witherspoon looks eternally 22. Other than having insanely good genes, Witherspoon’s makeup artist Molly R. Stern tells us exactly what you can do to get in on the glow.
“Reese Witherspoon is always such a blast and joy to create looks with,” says Stern. “For the Sing premiere, we went with our recent obsession of ‘matchy-matchy’ and pulled our colour inspiration from her gorgeous dress designed by Ulyana Sergeenko.” For the breakdown of the exact products used, see below.
“For her complexion I applied EX1 Invisiwear Liquid Foundation in 6.0 sparingly, just to even out her tone and enhance her naturally beautiful, luminous skin,” says Stern. “Using a neutral contouring blush shade by EX1 in Jet-Set Glow, I slightly enhanced the hollows of her cheeks to bring out the apples. Next, I applied a pop of warmth onto the apples using EX1 blusher in Natural Flush.
For her eyes, I based the lid with NARS Dual Intensity Eye Shadow in Tan Lines, then added a veil of pink using the center shade of Dior 5 Couleurs Skyline Palette in Capital of Light. Next I created a cat eye shape using the metallic grey from the same Dior palette. I then added a metallic wash over the lid using Chantecaille Mermaid Eye Color in Starfish. I intensified the lash and waterline using Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Desperation. I curled her lashes and used a YSL mascara.
