From theater actress to Oscar nominee, this stunning beauty keeps her look simple yet classic. The powerful roles she plays call for an understated glamour, which she enhances by highlighting her glowing skin and eye-catching red hair. If you love the chic and sophisticated lawyer look from her latest romantic comedy, then follow these steps from makeup artist Tyrone Traylor so you too can redefine the "Laws of Attraction."
STEP 1 To even out her skin tone, Julianne used a lightweight foundation that is sheer enough to let her skin show through. Apply small amounts with your fingers all over the face, including the eyelids. (I find fingers work faster, as the product melts into the skin as you work. Just remember that it's important to choose the right foundation shade; match it to your jaw.)
STEP 2 For the well-defined brows seen here, you may want to get your eyebrows professionally groomed. Either way, be sure to remove any stray hairs and, using an angled brow brush, fill in and define brows with powder.
STEP 4 Julianne's soft and subtle eyes are the result of liner and light, neutral eye shadows. (Neutral tones help make deep-set eyes look less hollow.) Apply a cream shadow in a soft taupe from lash line to brow bone. Next, apply a lighter powder shadow all over your lids down to the tear duct.
STEP 5 Completely line the top of the eyelid with a soft brown liner. To thicken the look of lower lashes, draw a line along the lower lashes instead of all around the eye. This gives a "doe eye" look without the liner being visible.
STEP 6 Apply black mascara to the upper lashes. Allow mascara to dry, and coat lashes again.
STEP 7 Apply a soft coral-to-brick-toned powder blush to the apples of the cheeks using a brush.
STEP 8 Julianne's lip color is a shade lighter than russet, but deeper than coral. Line the shape of your mouth with a spice-colored liner to even out imperfections. Blend liner into lipstick so it does not stand out. Finish with a clear gloss on top.
