The biggest trend starting to take shape for the fall season is all matte everything. If you’re not quite ready for that kind of commitment, we’ll show you how to dabble with the trend like “We Are Your Friends” star Emily Ratajkowski. The new “It” girl (featured everywhere lately) rocked the look, created by celebrity artist Jo Baker at a recent red carpet premiere for the upcoming movie. Using Urban Decay Cosmetics, Jo was inspired by radiant sun-kissed skin, with a creamy nude matte lip and well groomed brows.
“It perfectly bridges the summer-to-fall seasonal transition. The nude tone, Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in Stark Naked, feels light and fresh for the final days of summer, while the subdued texture with a slight gleam adds an edge of fall’s more sophisticated look,” said Jo.
“A strong brow, defined with Urban Decay Brow Beater and Brow Tamer, balances the eye and lip to highlight her features and keeps everything looking pulled-together.”
“For Emily’s base I buffed a small amount of Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation onto her almost perfect skin – this creates a lightweight breathable coverage that looks and feels natural, not overdone! To add a little golden summertime warmth to her cheeks I applied YSL Les Sahariennes in #5. This tan-toned balm adds a gentle sun kissed look and is perfectly applied with a soft blush brush.”
“We wanted Emily’s eyes to sparkle and shine with a light and dreamy quality. I used a soft cream eyeshadow wash over the lid of her eye using Maybelline Color Molten Shadow in Taupe Craze followed by one coat (which is all that was needed) of Urban Decay Perversion Mascara.”
“Using a lip brush I applied the supremely luxurious Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in Stark Naked, $22, which features a blend of avocado, olive oil and shea butter that help these anti-drying matte wonders stay smooth and creamy all day. To enhance Emily’s lip shape I softly lined them after the lipstick was applied using Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Stark Naked.”
(Jo’s pro tip: For a natural perfected lip, apply Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick with a brush onto lips and take Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil, $20, to shape the edges of the lip afterwards. The lipstick base provides glide so you can shape your desired lip effortlessly.)
“I like to finish with grooming the brows at the very end, this allows me to see how much attention they need. Emily has fabulous natural eyebrows so all she needed was a couple of strokes of Urban Decay Brow Beater, $20, in Warm Brown to even their shape, finished by a swipe of Urban Decay Brow Tamer in Taupe to keep them in place. Brow Beater – a double-ended tool with a mechanical, retractable (and waterproof!) brow pencil on one end and a spoolie grooming brush on the other, making it easy to replicate the natural look of real hair. The combination of a precise, microfine tip and unique texture lays down color perfectly, so brows look “done” without looking drawn-on.
Unruly brows getting a little less Cara Delevingne, a little more Andy Rooney? Whip them back into shape with Brow Tamer, $20 – a brow gel in a mascara-like tube that simultaneously grooms, defines and sets brows for a fuller, more polished look. The easy-to-use spiral microfiber brush gives you total control, and the lightweight, paraben-free and water-resistant formula provides a comfortable, flexible hold that lasts all day and is never stiff or sticky. Since not everyone was born with full browns, the gel is available in four universally wearable tints (taupe, neutral brown, warm brown, and dark) for natural-looking definition as well as a clear shade.
(Jo’s pro tip: Use a slightly lighter Brow Tamer shade on top of your Brow Beater pencil color, as this keeps them looking natural without becoming too dark and heavy!”
