Actress Morena Baccarin, Emmy nominee for her supporting role in Homeland, hit the red carpet in a strapless red Alexander McQueen gown. Her delicate beauty was enhanced by the make-up magic of celebrity artist Lina Hanson who used a variety of Bellapierre professional cosmetics.                                                 

“Morena was wearing such a striking red gown; I was immediately inspired by the vibrancy of its color and her soft, feminine hair. I opted to keep her makeup very classic and elegant with a sophisticated black cat eye and true, matte red lip color,” says Hanson.


Begin by dusting the face with an even layer of Bellapierre Mineral Compact Foundation in Nutmeg, using a large Bellapierre powder brush. Follow with a dusting of Bellapierre Compact Bronzing Powder in Pure Element, concentrating on the forehead, chin and nose for a natural, sun-kissed look.

Using Bellapierre Shimmer 9Stack Pandera eye colors, apply Nude on the entire lid and brush up to the brow bone. Use Taupe-Grey Sensation on the crease and blend, followed by Taupe-Bronze Cocoa on top of the crease. Create a winged cat eye with Bellapierre Eyeliner Duo in Black. Apply several coats of Bellapierre Mascara in Black to curled lashes. Add a strip of artificial lashes and another coat of mascara. Fill in brows with Bellapierre Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Chocolate.

For a natural glow, brush Bellapierre Compact Mineral Blush in Amaretto on the apples of the cheeks with a Bellapierre Blush Brush.

For the lips, combine Bellapierre Luminous and Ruby lipsticks (to match the red gown). For a matte finish, apply Mineral Compact Foundation in Nutmeg followed by the lip color, patted down with a tissue. Reapply the lips color and pat down again for a stained, matte finish.

Finish the look with an additional light sweep of Nutmeg foundation.
