Zoe Saldana: Beauty Look of the Week

Who: Zoe Saldana

Where: Rock & Republic for Kohl's at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2012

Why we like it: During fashion week, celebrities and industry members have so many events to go to, it can be hard to find a beauty look that works for day and night. This simple, but striking, look on Zoe Saldana is pefect for any occasion. 

How to get it at home: Start with as clean of a base as possible, if you can get away with it, skip foundation altogether and just apply concealer where necessary. Otherwise, apply a mattifying foundation such as NARS Sheer Matte Foundation $42. Prep your eyes with a light shimmering shadow or a tinted shadow primer then apply Bobbi Brown's Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner $22 with a small angled or eyeliner brush into a hard flick. If you have a hard time creating even flicks, make a small dot where you want your flick to end on either side. That way you can even them out before you add to much product. If you want a slightly softer line, pat a black eyeshadow on top of the liner. Apply two coats of mascara and fill in any holes with Make Up For Ever's Eyelashes Individual $15.  If you're new to using individual lashes, apply just two or three only to the outer corner.

You don't need to apply any cheek color, so go right onto your lips. Zoe has a bold, glossy lip which can be acheived two ways. You can use an opaque gloss such as Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain $32 or fill your lips in with lip pencil and cover it with a tinted gloss such as Dior Addict Ultra Gloss $28.
