Gone Girl actress Rosamund Pike looked classic and beautiful in a fire-red, custom Givenchy gown at the Oscars. With her dress as the statement, her makeup look had to be timeless. With contouring and earthy tones, we agree that Pike looked timeless all night.
Pike got ready for the awards show with a facial a few days prior. Make up artist Melanie Inglessis focused on prepping the star’s skin before applying makeup. Inglessiss used a gentle cream cleanser, a mist spray and moisturizer before applying a gel mask and lip balm. After ten minutes, she wiped off the mask and balm and used a mattifying primer.
Though there was no statement feature in Pike’s look, her cheekbones were accented. Inglessis used a matte cream bronzer on her cheekbones, nose, jawline and forehead to contour. This allowed Pike’s upper cheekbones to appear lighter and defined without piling on too much product.
Lips were kept simple with a pinkish nude lip color.
Inglessis used a vanilla shadow over the lids, brown liner on the upper and lower lash lines. To add subtle definition, she used a matte brown in the eye’s crease and around the eye to the lower lash line. She finished with black mascara on the top lashes and brown mascara on the bottom lashes.
