Emily Blunt Channels Her Inner English Rose
Artist Jenn Streicher breaks down the SAG nominee's pink-and-bronze hued look.
All it took was one glance at Emily Blunt’s romantic Roberto Cavalli gown on the morning of the 2017 SAG Awards, and makeup artist Jenn Streicher knew what to do. “There’s some beading in there,” says Streicher, who opted to play up the shades in the intricate pink detailing, as well as Blunt’s dazzling pink-sapphire-and-diamond Lorraine Schwarz earrings.
With Blunt’s fresh blonde 'do already adding a pop to her blue peepers, Streicher chose to make the eyes the focal point of the look, beginning with the sold-out Laura Mercier Eye Canvas in Linen. “I use it like a shadow primer, and apply a thin layer over the entire eye, from lashes to brow,” she says. “It really makes shadows adhere better to the lid.”
Then Streicher went off script. “I did something different,” she says, referring to her use of Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Color blush in Rose Bloom. “I started with that in the crease of the eye,” says Streicher, who then layered on the mauve-brown Fresco hue from the Laura Mercier Eye Art Artists Palette and the Editorial Eye Palette’s Metallik Rust Clay shade. “It’s a cream powder,” she explained. “You can lightly press it onto the lid. Once you put it on it adheres and gives a really nice finish.” Streicher rounded out the look with Laura Mercier’s wet/dry Baked Eye Color in Terracota, applying it wet under the eye for “more intense color.” Streicher finished off Blunt’s face with a swipe of Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Rose.
