Besides her simple beauty, her undercover pleasing to the mind or senses, and her dynamic reasoning power, Ellen Page won me over again getting her ready for the Premiere of Defiance. It was the second time I had worked with her, the first being at the Sundance Film Festival for Juno and what I loved about my time with her this time was the first thing she said to me:
"Can you like get it done in maybe umm 20 minutes... cool!"
Most people freak out about every little detail... including me the perfectionist... and sometimes what should only take 20 minutes can end up taking over an hour. Thanks Ellen for keeping it genuine.
Beauty Addict Blog, one of my favorites, wrote about my experience with Ellen and said: "Ellen Page has definitely been looking more polished these days! But what I like most about this red carpet look is that she still looks like...well, Ellen Page. Not too done up, just relaxed and natural, but still polished.
Lancome National Makeup Artist Darais created Ellen's Defiance premiere look and used that new mascara that's been all over the blogs and magazines. Oscillation? Perhaps you've heard of it?
Darais says, “the look was simple and elegant with a focus on the eyes. Blending silver and brown shadows and using the smallest amount of liquid liner, I created a semi intense smoky eye and used new Lancôme Ôscillation Mascara which allowed her already gorgeous lashes to really stand out. Using a liquid highlighter and blush, I illuminated her skin in a sheer radiant veil."
As for the lips, Darais used one of my favorite tricks: filling in the lip with pencil and then coating with gloss. "I created a soft lip using a creamy lip coloring stick and a gold gloss," he said.
