How to Recreate Jennifer Connelly's Red Carpet Radiance

Jennifer Connelly looked stunning on the red carpet on May 14th for the premiere of her new film, “Virginia.” The Academy Award-winning actress and Shiseido Global Spokesperson wore Alexander McQueen and completed the striking look with a bold red lip.

We caught up with makeup artist, Genevieve Herr to get the inside scoop on the makeup of the night.  Genevieve explained “Jennifer's dress inspired me to work with beautiful saturated colors.  Especially the Lacquer Rouge. I concentrated on her amazing lips and kept the rest of the makeup dewy and clean to compliment her radiant skin."

Here’s how makeup artist Genevieve Herr created Jennifer’s look…

Step #1: For Jennifer’s bold lip, apply the new Lacquer Rouge ($25, launching in August) in Drama (RD501). For a similar shade, try Perfect Rouge ($25) in Valentine (RD415).

Step #2: For a subtle wash of color on the eyes, apply Shimmering Cream Eye Color ($25) in Pale Shell (PK214) and coat lashes in Perfect Mascara Full Definition ($25) in Black (BK901) to make them thick, long and lush.

Step #3: Brighten the cheek area with a peach shade and a swipe of the Accentuating Color Stick ($33) in Bronze Flush (S1).

Step #4: Set foundation and concealer with a dusting of Translucent Pressed Powder ($32).
