Zooey Deschanel’s Retro Romance:
Makeup artist Jorjee Douglas played up the New Girl star’s signature retro look with a refined and romantic look: Porcelain skin, pink cheeks, coral lips, and a classy cat eye. Perfect for that gorgeous blue gown of hers, no?
Here’s how to get the look:
1. First, prep your face with a light moisturizer; then apply CARGO Cosmetics’ HD Picture Perfect CC cream ($39, cargocosmetics.com) evenly across the face for a flawless, natural complexion.
2. Next, Give your cheeks a delicate pink flush by applying CARGO blush in Mendocino ($26, cargocosmetics.com) from the apples of your cheeks all the way to the outer middle edge of your jawline. A little bit of CARGO water resistant bronzer ($29, cargocosmetics.com) applied to the outer corners of your face will give you a little extra definition. Go easy—the goal is subtlety here.
3. And now, the eyes: First, some CARGO Jet Lag concealer ($16, cargocosmetics.com) under your eyes will brighten your peepers and reduce the appearance of dark circle. Dust your entire eyelid with CARGO eye shadow in beige satin Windsor; then contour with a little bit of rose-apricot Pasadena and smoky grey Flint ($16 each, cargocosmetics.com). Next, line your upper and lower lashes with CARGO TexasLiner liquid eye liner ($20, cargocosmetics.com); wing the line out at the corners to make a sassy cat eye, and make sure you start your lower line in the middle of the lid, rather than innter corner. A dab of CARGO EyeLighter ($20, cargocosmetics.com) at the inner and outer corners of your eye will highlight and brighten—then finish it off with a coat or two of CARGO TexasLash mascara ($20, cargocosmetics.com) on your upper and lower lashes.
4. Lastly, dab your lips with CARGO Essential Lip Color in Sedona ($22, cargocosmetics.com) for a bold, matte, coral lip with pizazz. Voila!
