Nicole Kidman's Makeup - Celebrity Get the Look - iVillage Beauty Makeup

Nicole Kidman doesn’t need a lot of work to look beautiful. With her endless curls, amazing body and perfect skin it would be difficult to make her look anything but. When it comes to makeup, she keeps it simple, choosing to accentuate one feature rather than looking too made up. If you love Nicole’s chic, sexy style as much as we do, follow these easy, innovative steps from Prescriptives makeup artist DARAK to make this look your own.

STEP 1 The goal for this look is skin that appears soft and dewy. Pour a small amount of a sheer light-reflecting foundation into the palm of your hand. Using a foundation brush, dip it lightly into the makeup and apply to the face using downward strokes. Use your fingers for additional blending.

STEP 2 Apply a stick concealer slightly lighter than the color of your foundation under the eyes, lightly on the eyelids, around the edge of the nose and to any spots that may need extra coverage. Blend by patting the concealer with your ring finger. Lightly dust loose, talc-free powder only on your cheeks, chin and brow.

Step 3 Start work on your eyes by applying one coat of black mascara. Apply a beige shadow all over the entire eye using a flat shadow brush. Working from the lash line, apply a light brown shadow all over the lid and up into the crease. Use a smaller eye shadow brush to apply a warm brown to the lid only. Line the top and bottom lashes with a soft black eyeliner pencil and smudge the line for a soft, smoky effect. Using an eyeliner brush, go over the liner only on the top lash line with a warm charcoal eyeshadow. Blend up and out at the edges. Apply a second coat of black mascara. According to DARAK, your eyes should now be "the celebrity of your face."

STEP 4 To contour the face, use a light brown cream blush stick. Always use browns to contour, never color (the idea is to create shadows). Lightly draw a line with the blush directly under each cheekbone and blend well with your fingers. Use your fingertips to dot small amounts of color along the jawline, starting just below the ear and working down to the chin. Blend in downward motions. To warm the face and accentuate your features, dot a little of this color along the hairline, starting at eye level and blending up and back toward the hair.

STEP 5 Your cheek color for this look should be very subtle so DARAK recommends first dipping your blush brush into a little loose powder, then onto your powder blush palette to dilute and soften the color. Smile and dot the color on the apples of the cheeks, blending down and back. Also apply a little color onto your forehead, nose and chin for a soft, sun-kissed look.

STEP 6 Using a lip brush, apply a neutral taupe lip color. Use a lip liner in a complementary color to balance and fill out the lip as needed. Finish the lips with clear gloss only in the center of the lower lip.
