The beauty guru — who also works with Naomi Watts, Kristen Stewart and Natalie Portman — played off the flowing long-sleeve dress. “We were thinking gypsy glam-rock vibes,” Dubroff tells Pret-a-Reporter. “There was definitely a free-spirit element — a girl not afraid to wear glitter, yet still be pulled together and polished.”

Next came a swipe of Diorshow Fusion Mono Cream Shadow in Etoile ($31) on the center of her lids, then Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Midnight Cowboy ($20) for a pop. The finishing touch? Several coats of Laura Mercier Extra Lash Sculpting Mascara in Black Onyx ($25).
