Seattle-based songtress and two-time Grammy nominee Mary Lambert’s signature pout is as memorable as her powerful voice, heard on Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ hit single, "Same Love," which she performed with the duo and Madonna at Sunday's Grammys as 33 couples were married onstage.
Here, celebrity makeup artist Kaija Mistral Towner spills the secrets to getting Lambert’s old Hollywood makeup look. First, she recommends keeping the complexion clean and simple with a Laura Mercier highlighter. To achieve Lambert’s classic lip shade, Towner applies Laura Mercier’s True Red lip pencil, layered with M.A.C. lipstick in Ruby Woo.
For Lambert’s feline-inspired eyes, Towner relies on Laura Mercier’s Tightline Cake Eyeliner in Black Ebony, applied with a brush to get as close as possible to the lash. She follows with cat-eye wings across upper lids in Stila’s liquid pen in Black.
And the secret for making it last under the glare of the spotlight? Translucent powder dusted across the face, including the lips.
