Makeup How-To: America Ferrera at the 2015 Academy Awards

America Ferrera

Celebrity makeup artist Dawn Broussard worked with America Ferrera for the recent 87th Annual Academy Awards. Said Broussard, "America's Jenny Packham dress was soft, ethereal and flowing with elegance. Her makeup was classic with hints of spunk and glamour that came from a bronzed and pewter palette."

Get the Look:

  1. Said Broussard, "I started by prepping the skin with Kate Somerville Deep Tissue Repair Moisturizer for long lasting hydration. Lancôme Nude Miracle Foundation in Buff was applied with a Shiseido Foundation Brush, creating a soft matte wearable texture. Lancôme Translucent Pressed Powder in Ivoire was dusted lightly across the forehead, nose and chin to take away any excess shine.
  2. "For the eyes, I used Charlotte Tilbury Color Morphing Eye Shadow Pencil in Amber Haze. Smudging this pencil along the upper and lower lash line creates an instant depth to the lashes, the perfect start for creating a flawless smoky eye. Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette in Golden Goddess was blended around the eye with bronze and amber tones. I used Lancôme Grandiose Mascara in Noir to volumize lashes to the fullest.
  3. "Chanel Powder Blush in Innocence was dusted lightly on the apples of the cheeks for a youthful glow.
  4. "Chanel Rouge Coco in Adrienne was used on her lips with Charlotte Tilbury Lip Pencil in Pink Venus to softly line and define."
