Marion Cotillard at the 2014 Met Gala

Marion Cotillard turned heads at Monday’s Costume Institute Gala at The Met in New York. The French beauty paired her midnight blue Christian Dior gown with dramatic side-swept hair and luminous makeup by Hourglass. “The dress makes a graphic statement and we complemented it with glowing skin, iridescent eyes and richly pigmented lips,” says makeup artist Christophe Danchaud.

Complexion: Danchaud began by prepping Marion’s skin with Hourglass’ No. 28 Primer Serum. He followed with Veil Fluid Makeup in 1.5 and Hidden® Corrective Concealer in Pearl. He finished with Ambient® Lighting Powder in Dim Light applied all over the face to create a soft-focus effect.

Cheeks: He applied Ambient® Lighting Blush in Radiant Magenta, a golden fuchsia blush, to create a stunning glow.

Eyes: Danchaud used Visionaire Eye Shadow in Exhibition. He began by applying the shimmer lilac shade all over her lids. He then applied the dark mauve shade in the duo close to her lash line and to the outer corner of her eye. He extended the mauve shade to underneath her eyes, close to the lash line. To lighten up his handiwork, he used a gold pigment on the lids. Finally, he applied several coats of Film Noir® Full Spectrum Mascara.

Brows: He defined the brows with Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Dark Brunette.

Lips: Danchaud lined the lips with Panoramic Long Wear Lip Pencil in Raven, a new shade for summer. He followed with a mix of Femme Rouge® Velvet Crème Lipstick in Raven and Muse creating a sensual orange red shade.
