It’s no surprise that British actress Thandie Newton is the face of Olay Total Effects, her beautiful skin is flawless, ageless and possibly the most sought after. Not to mention she has beauty and brains—she killed the screen in For Colored Girls and Mission: Impossible II. So when Lindsay Ebbin, VP and Global Creative Director of Vibe Beauty offered tips to help us get her look, you know we jumped on it. Who wouldn’t want to look like this British beauty? Get her look in 5 steps below.
Step 1: Prep the eye area with Prevage Anti-Aging Eye serum for Dark Circles. Then use 1 squirt of Prevage Anti-Aging Face Daily Moisturizer with a SPF 30 by Elizabeth Arden. Apply Nar’s Radiant Creamy Concealer around the eyes to instantly obscure imperfections and hide dark circles that show signs of fatigue. With a foundation brush, apply Revlon’s Photoready Airbrush Mousse Makeup all over your face.
Step 2: Brows sometimes need a little magic. I like to use Brow Wiz by Anastasia of Beverly Hills for spot checking areas that may be sparse or over-tweezed. The pencil has an ultrafine, retractable tip to easily fill in gaps and mimic brow hair.
Step 3: Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Peach Mosaic adds a hint of color to the entire eye area. Finish by lining the lower eyelash with a thick line of Aqua Eyes in Pearly Brown by Makeup Forever.
Step 4: Gently apply a thin coat of Lancôme’s Définicils Waterproof Mascara in black to the upper and lower lashes. This mascara adds length and is suitable for contact lens wearers.
Step 5: YSL’s rouge pur Couture in Rouge Gouache is hot color for summer and combines the texture and shine of a gloss with the long-lasting abilities of a stain. Finish with a Rose or Blush Lip liner to border your lips.
