I love Kristen Bell and I think this would be a great holiday makeup look, so let me break it did-down.
Foundation: Full coverage, matte finish. Concealer under eyes and where needed. Make Up For Ever Ultra HD foundation would be a good choice.
Powder: Matte powder all over. Rimmel Stay Matte Powders are up to this job.
Highlighter: Yes, on cheekbones. It’s subtle though. Benefit Watts Up applied sparingly would work well.
Contour/Bronzer: Contour under cheekbones. I’m a big fan of the Make Up For Ever Sculpting Kits for this.
Cheek Color: A minimal amount of a peachy blush, like MAC Melba.
Eyebrows: Soft taupe brow powder filling in sparseness, accentuating the arch and extending slightly at ends. A very 1950s/Marilyn Monroe shaped brow. Brow powder color will depend on your actual brow color.
Eye Makeup: Gold shadow all over lid. Laura Mercier Gold Seduction would work well. Lighter gold shadow, like MAC Ricepaper, in inner corners. Medium brown matte shadow, like MAC Wedge, in crease, slightly extended at outer corners. Black gel liner, like MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack, smoked out into brown (MAC Brun) or black (MAC Carbon) eyeshadow at top lashline. Brown shadow at outer 2/3 of bottom lashline. Thin brown pencil (like Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner in Scotch) or gel liner smudged out/softened on outer 2/3 bottom lashline.
Mascara: Yes, black mascara top and bottom. Dior Diorshow is my favorite for top lashes. Clinique Bottom lash mascara is great for bottom lashes, as it’s a beauty tubes mascara, so no smudging.
False Lashes: Yes, strip lashes that are fuller on the outer ends.
Lipliner: Yes, same color as the lipstick. MAC Subculture would work for this.
Lipcolor: MAC lipstick in Cherish would be a good match. It’s a soft muted peachy beige with a satin finish. In all of the pictures I’ve looked at, I’m seeing that the center of Kristen’s bottom lip looks lighter. That’s a trick to make it look fuller. Her makeup artist likely applied a gloss with shimmer in it to that area, as shimmer particles reflect light and give the illusion that an area is fuller. So a clear or peachy gloss with shimmer dotted on the center of the bottom lip will do the trick. MAC Florabundance Lipglass would be my choice, but alas, it has gone into the underworld of The Discontinued Products.
This look would work on a lot of people. The shape of the eye makeup works especially well on smaller eyes, and gold shadows often look great on medium skintones. The lipstick may not be as flattering on very fair skin, so you could go for something more pink. This look is kind of classic Old Hollywood with a modern nude lip. I think it’s a great one for a holiday party.
Kristen’s makeup artist for this look was Simone Siegl.
