Naomi Watts Charlize Theron – foun­da­tion, high­lighter, and blush – which she uses on Theron’s skin for a “real glowy ef­fect.” SHORT HAIR CALLS FOR DE­FINED BROWS If you have a face­bar­ing crop, don’t for­get about your brows. “With short hair, all of your fea­tures are re­vealed – there isn’t a cur­tain of hair to hide be­hind,” says Lee. When Anne Hath­away hits the red car­pet, Lee uses a clear or tinted brow gel; it gives def­i­ni­tion but doesn’t make it “too graphic,” the way drawn-on pen­cil can. “You’d be sur­prised how much it boosts your real brow,” she adds. NEVER SKIP BLUSH Be­cause it blends ef­fort­lessly into foun­da­tion, “cream blush looks more nat­u­ral than pow­der,” Lee says. When it comes to colour, Lupita Ny­ong’o’s make-up artist, Nick Barose, says that brighter is bet­ter for darker com­plex­ions. Try an elec­tric or­ange or a ma­genta, then blend well. “If the colour isn’t rich enough, it can look grey on your skin,” he says. Lee likes pink­ish-brown Le Blush Crème de Chanel in Des­tiny, which she has used on Emma Wat­son, as a one-colour-fits-all that “doesn’t com­pli­cate any­thing else on the face.” THE RIGHT LIP COLOUR MAT­TERS When Kate Bos­worth rocks a bright lip (like vivid pink), there’s only one rule: “Keep ev­ery­thing else min­i­mal and clean,” says Dubroff, who works reg­u­larly with the ac­tress. For darker skin tones, like Ny­ong’o’s, “any­thing goes,” says Barose. Think bright red, co­ral, pur­ple, or fuch­sia. Wish you had An­gelina Jolie’s full lips? Start by us­ing con­cealer to erase pig­men­ta­tion or shad­ows around your lips, says Maulaw­iz­ada, who preps the star’s pout, and stick with shiny tex­tures. “A fleshy, peachy tone that is al­most nude makes the lips look fuller,” he adds.
