Rene Zellweger Makeup - Celebrity Get the Look

Blessed with flawless porcelain skin and perfectly formed cupid-bow lips, Oscar-nominated star of Cold Mountain Renée Zellweger has an enviable beauty. But Hollywood events call for sophistication, and Renée keeps her doll-like looks from appearing too sweet with smoky, well-defined eyes and full lips inspired by a bygone era. To get Renée's glamorous retro look, take the advice of New York- and Rome-based makeup artist Carlo Longo.

Step 1 Begin with skin that's clean and moisturized. Using a moist makeup sponge, apply a cream-to-powder foundation where needed to even your skin tone. (If your skin is oily, you may want to lightly brush on loose powder with a large, fluffy powder brush.)

Step 2 Use a kohl pencil to line the eyes along the top and bottom lashes. Using a small flat brush, blend the liner with short upward strokes. Fix any excess smudging by applying powder over the smudge. Then, using another small brush, lightly apply a light "smoke" or black eye shadow across the entire eyelid. Clear away and lift off any extra shadow with a large fan brush.

Step 3 Curl your eyelashes using a good-quality eyelash curler, then brush on a single coat of black mascara. Choose an eye pencil that matches your eyebrow color and use it to lightly fill in your eyebrows.

Step 4 For this look, your blush should be almost invisible, so opt for a liquid stain in a natural shade. Use your index finger to pat small dots of color on your upper cheekbone and quickly blend toward the hairline.

Step 5 Line and fill in your lips with a lip pencil. Choose a shade that matches or is slightly darker than your natural lip color. The result is a matte lip and color that won't rub off midway through your evening. For additional lip conditioning and a softer look, add a layer of ChapStick to your lips.
