Need proof that subtlety is more alluring than in-your-face sexiness? Witness Megan Fox, who showed off a ladylike style at Spike TV's Scream Awards this weekend. With her long locks tucked away to create the illusion of a bob (here's how), she looked sophisticated and poised. Her toned-down makeup also highlighted her features in a flattering way. Want to re-create her makeup look? Just keep reading.
Makeup artist Angela Levin began by moisturizing Megan's face. From there, she followed these steps: FACE: Start by applying foundation and concealing any blemishes, then set it with a translucent powder. Levin used RCMA base KO-1 and set it with Chanel Poudre Cristalline powder on the forehead and jaw line.
EYES: This look is all about warm, golden brown tones. Levin used Chanel Quadra eye shadow in Variations. Highlight your eyes by sweeping a pale pinky-beige eye shadow underneath the brow bone, then apply a gold shadow on the eyelid. Use a sand shade in the area between eyelid and brow bone. To create definition, use a dark plummy brown eye shadow in the crease and under the lower lash line. (Levin used the limited-edition Chanel Soft Touch eye shadow in Magic Night; for another option, try MAC eye shadow in Sketch.) Levin also used Sue Devitt Eye Intensifier pencil in Tanzania to define the eye, then applied black mascara and groomed brows.
LIPS: Apply a creamy pink lipstick. Megan Fox wore Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in Darling.
