For the premiere of the new remake of the 1976 classic, "Carrie," celebrity makeup artist, Mai Quynh used Talika products to create a soft, romantic look for actress Chloe Grace Moretz. Here, Mai gives the breakdown of everything she used to create Chloe's fresh look:
At the premiere, Chloe wore a "soft and kind of bohemian" Valentino gown in a mossy green color. The softness of the short-sleeved, floor length dress influenced Mai to go for a "young and fresh" look.
In order to create this youthful look, Mai began by using Talika Eye Decompress which she "applied… over Chloe's eyes for 10 minutes while her hair was being prepped… [which] allowed enough time for them to soak in and soothe the skin around the eyes." Next, Mai used "3-4 drops of Talika Huile Vitale on [Chloe's] face to moisturize the skin," along with "Talika Cream Booster to massage the Huile Vitale into her skin." Mai explained that the Cream Booster "helps any skin care product penetrate deeper and work more efficiently so… skin stays hydrated."
After prepping Chloe's skin, Mai then "applied Diorskin Nude Skin-Glowing Makeup SPF 15 in Crème 011, using a foundation brush, [and] added concealer under [Chloe's] eyes and wherever needed." To set the foundation, Mai used "sheer, loose powder, brushing it on her forehead, cheeks and chin. For Chloe's cheeks, [Mai] swept Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 68 Rose Ecrin, [placing] the color on the apples of her cheeks [and] blending it outward towards her ears."
For Chloe's eyes, Mai used the Talika Heated Eyelash Curler to curl the eyelashes. This innovative product uses heat in order to ensure that "lashes will stay curled, even after applying mascara." After prepping Chloe's lashes, Mai "applied a shimmery bone eye shadow to her lids, then a soft bronze eye shadow to her outer lid, blending it into her crease." To create dimension, Mai then "layered a dark bronze shadow on top of the soft bronze shade, [and] smudged the dark bronze along her top lash line and soft bronze along her bottom lash line. Next, [Mai] primed and coated [Chloe's] lashes with Talika Lipocils & Black." This soon-to-be-released product works to fill out lashes, giving the appearance of length and thickness. After allowing the treatment to dry, Mai "applied two coats of the lengthening and volumizing black mascara," followed by "Talika Eyebrow Lipocils to groom [Chloe's] brows and add a little luster."
To finish off the look, Mai used a "soft, peachy lip stain" on Chloe's lips, thus allowing her eyes to be the main focus of the look.
The overall effect is a soft, romantic look that is both youthful and fresh.
