Model Alek Wek is a stunningly gorgeous gal, and at the age of 32, I swear the Sudanese native doesn't look a day over 20. How does she do it? To create her makeup look last night at the 2009 Costume Institute Gala, artist Oslyn Holder used all Lancôme products.
I'm loving how Alek's eyes are emphasized with a customized blend of black- and purple-toned shadows, set off by glossy burgundy lips. If you'd like to re-create this look at home, I've got all the details when you read more.
- Eyes: Holder lined the upper lash line with Le Stylo Waterproof in Noir ($23.50) and blended Color Design Eye Shadow in Statuesque ($16.50) and Color Design Eye Shadow Backstage Pass ($16.50) on the eyelid. An application of Hypnôse Mascara in Deep Black ($24) finished off this feature.
- Cheeks: To accentuate Alek's cheekbones, Holder used Color Design Cream Blush in Chic Cassis ($27).
- Lips: A few swipes of Color Fever Gloss in Intense ($25) were applied to the lips to bring it all together. Simply stunning.
