“I gave Dree a face massage before starting the makeup to open up the skin and allow the products to really sink in,” says makeup artist Nico Guilis. She used a Chanel face cream--try their Le Blanc Brightening Moisturizing Cream ($130)--followed by a spray of Evian’s Mineral Water Spray ($12) to prep her skin.
To keep Hemingway’s skin light, Guilis applied Tom Ford’s Foundation Stick ($78) only where the model needed a little coverage: under her eyes, around her nose, and on her cheeks.
To contour, Guilis dusted Nars Bronzing Powder ($36) in Laguna under Hemingway’s cheekbones and along her jaw. Even with contour you need a touch of cheek color, says Guilis, so she reached for the brand’s Multiple ($39) in Orgasm.
“The light brown color in Tom Ford’s Coco Mirage Quad ($75) is the perfect brow shade for blondes,” says Guilis. She dusted the powder into Hemingway’s brows with an angled brush and set them with a spooley brush spritzed with hairspray. Pick up E.l.f.’s Essential Brow Wand ($1).
Guilis defined Hemingway’s eyes using a thin brush and Chanel’s Professional Eyeliner Duo ($45) in Noir. “Trace along your top lash line, but don’t flick the ends up,” Guilis says.
Guilis applied seven to 10 short, individual lashes to each of Hemingway’s eyes, crisscrossing them to create a thick lash. “Glue the lashes to your real lashes--not to your skin,” Guilis says. A coat of Chanel’s Inimitable Intense Mascara ($30) in Noir added definition. For this look try Ardell’s DuraLash Naturals Flare Individual Lashes ($4).
“A red lip would have been the obvious choice for this look,” says Guilis. “But I wanted something more earthy and sultry.” Her pick? Nars’ Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($25) in Damned.
Hairstylist Ben Skervin prepped Hemingway’s towel-dried hair with Vidal Sassoon’s Foaming Air Boost and Lift Mousse ($6), rough dried her locks until they were 90 percent dry, then finished the blowout with a natural bristle round brush for smoothness.
Skervin created a deep side part in Hemingway’s tresses, applied Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray ($39) all over, and backcombed her roots. To create a faux bob he sectioned her hair into three parts: the bottom half, top half, and a small section in the front. “Roll the bottom section under and secure with classic bobby pins,” he says. “Smooth the top section with a brush, roll it under the bottom section, and pin.” Loosen and refine the shape with your hands and use U-shaped pins to lock the bob in place--try Sta-Rite’s Jumbo Hair Pins ($3).
“You want the front section to have a soft wave, not a curl,” says Skervin. He used a 1 1/2–inch iron on the front section of Hemingway’s locks, allowed the curls to cool, then brushed them with a natural bristle brush. Skervin pinned a few waves into the bob, and set her tresses with Vidal Sassoon’s Pro Series Flexible Hold Hairspray ($4).
