The film that brought together one of the sexiest couples alive premieres today at TIFF, and you can easily nab star Eva Mendes’ sex-kitten makeup look in hopes of finding a Ryan Gosling of your own. The Place Beyond the Pines, Eva and Ryan’s anticipated crime drama, also stars the super sexy Bradley Cooper. Two of Hollywood’s biggest heartthrobs in one place (and movie!) at one time calls for an ultra-sultry makeover, don’t you agree?
Eva Mendes is always glam and glowing, and never overdone. Her go-to makeup look as of late has taken on a pseudo-sixties mod vibe, inspired by Bridgitte Bardot but softened with Eva’s natural beauty shining through. Follow these simple steps to get the woman of the hour’s lash-batting gaze and kissable matte pout. First, illuminate skin with a tinted, luminous highlighting cream like our YSL pick. Eva’s skin is flawless, and her dewy complexion shines through without all the heavy coverage of foundation.
After brushing brows into a bold arch, take on Eva’s lush gaze with these three products- faux lashes, winged black liquid eyeliner, and a pop of deep teal on the lower lashline. Lots of lengthening mascara combined with faux lashes just in the corners will heighten that feline stare. Candy pink sheer blush on the apples of the cheeks provides your Eva-worthy youthful glow, while the sixties lip is all about fullness and edible pale pink. Using nude lipliner, fill in lips from the outside towards the middle of lips, finishing with a pale pink matte lipstick like our Nars option. Apply three coats, tissuing off in between for a super-matte pucker.
