The secret to celebrities’ seemingly flawless faces may just lie in the talents of their makeup artists. But not everyone has a makeup artist at their beck and call. Not to worry! FEMME ROUGE enlisted our own professional, Arpi Nazaryan out of Los Angeles, to create an easy-to-follow guide for the perfect look to get you red carpet ready! Let’s get started!


BASE: Get skin ready with Chanel Multi-Use Illuminating Base, using your fingers or MAC blush brush 159.


FOUNDATION: Apply Make Up For Ever HD Foundation all over the skin. Make sure to blend well, especially along the jawline, using MAC foundation brush 190.


CONCEALER: Using your finger, apply your shade from the Kryolan Concealer Palette under the eye and blend well. Add another thin layer of the concealer in order to set it.


CHEEKBONES: Now that the basic foundation is done, we are going to start to contour the face. With Chanel concealer brush 10, apply a darker tone from the Kryolan Concealer Palette to contour under the cheekbones, giving the face more definition.


NOSE: Apply the same dark tone concealer with Chanel concealer brush 10 on the side of the nose to give it a slimming effect.


JAWLINE: Now blend out the darker tone with the skin tone, using small circular motions along the jawline with MAC angled contour brush 168.


BRONZER: Using MAC 129 powder blush brush, apply MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Deep Dark over the contoured areas to make them look bolder.


BLEND: Apply MAC Mineralize Foundation in Medium Deep on the sides of the nose to blend. Use MAC small contouring brush 109 and continue blending until you achieve the desired slimming effect.


WATERLINE: Apply MAC Eye Shadow in Embark under the water line with MAC brush 212 to give the eyes more definition and eliminate any imperfections caused by the concealer.


HIGHLIGHT: Apply Contouring Powder from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit in Banana on the cheekbone using MAC brush 129 to highlight. Repeat this process with the surface of the nose as well.
