Aside from her plunging, emerald-green Prada gown, Léa Seydoux stunned in a vampy lip (an ongoing red-carpet trend for Spring) at the premiere of Saint Laurent this past Saturday in Cannes. Here, makeup pro Kindra Mann spills the secrets to Seydoux’s flawless skin and budge-proof pout exclusively with Style.com:
Prep: Mann employed a combo of Embryolisse skincare to create the ultimate canvas—reaching for Eau de Beaute Rosamèlis toner, Lait-Crème Concentrè, Re-Densifying Serum, and Re-Densifying Eye and Lip Contour Cream.
Eyes: “I wanted to keep the eye soft since we knew we wanted a dramatic lip, so I started off by defining the brow using Anastasia’s brow pencil in Caramel. A light wash of Chanel cream shadow on the lid [try Illusion D’Ombre in Mirage] followed by a few coats of Sisley So Intense mascara came next. The finishing touch: a few Ardell, knot-free individual lashes,” she said.
Lip: In lieu of a creamy lipstick, Mann opted for Chanel’s lip liner in Vamp (now discontinued) to ensure Seydoux’s pout stayed put. Try Chanel Precision Lip Definer in Amarante.
Prada’s latest eau out next month, Candy Florale, revolves around an imaginary flower—its heart described as “a tender bouquet of cosmos.” And for the always-inventive Miuccia Prada, one would expect perfumer Daniela Andrier to go to the moon and back, bringing with her a bloom not of this earth as a souvenir. With a flair for the theatrics (illustrated by the house’s most recent menswear and ready-to-wear shows, separated into two acts) the brand called upon Steven Meisel and Léa Seydoux to bring the scent to life. The French darling plays the role of Candy, a bombshell with bangs who understands the power of seduction, and as exhibited by the brand’s last campaign for Candy L’Eau shot by Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola, uses it to her full advantage—enchanting not one, but two men. In the latest ad, however, Seydoux appears sans suitors (or clothing, for that matter), floating among graphic, black-and-white flora. In response to working with Meisel, the actress said: “It was the first time that I’d worked on a film with someone who is essentially a photographer—it was a really interesting experience because Steven Meisel has such a precise vision of what he considers to be the perfect image.” Meisel’s in-the-buff interpretation calls to mind another fragrance and blond seductress: Marilyn Monroe famously stated that she wore nothing but Chanel No. 5 to bed, and we imagine Seydoux (donning Candy Florale, of course) does the same.
Green may have been the color du jour at New York fashion week, but Léa Seydoux entered her blue period just in time for last night’s British Academy Film Awards in London. Paired with Veronica Lake-like waves, her iridescent navy cat-eyes completed the bombshell look. This particular shade of shadow has been getting a lot of play as of late—Keira Knightley wore a similar color a few weeks prior to the premiere of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. The budding vert trend on this season’s runways may have some serious red-carpet competition.
What a difference a day makes—at least in the red-carpet life of Léa Seydoux. The French actress/model arrived for a photo call celebrating the BAFTA EE Rising Star Award nominees in London wearing a floral-printed Miu Miu dress and a powder pink Prada jacket, with pared-down pastel makeup to match. At last night’s National Board of Review Awards Gala in New York City, however, she turned up the glamour factor with gold and green eyeshadow and bold berry lips. In contrast to Monday’s strawberry blond hue, her hair also appeared a richer shade of auburn in the most recent snap. But considering the fact that she flew across the pond in time to turn up for yet another event, I doubt she had hours to spare and spend at the salon (unless, of course, she transformed herself at 35,000 feet like Lady Gaga). I’m attributing the slight tonal change to lighting and strands drenched with styling products. What do you think?
While many a celeb has snapped a selfie sans makeup for Instagram, few have posed for a magazine cover minus all the smoke and mirrors. That’s exactly what French actress Léa Seydoux did for the September issue of Jalouse. Lensed by Juergen Teller, Seydoux looks slightly pissed off (and possibly recovering from the previous night’s bender…shades of Cara Delevingne’s Love cover), but despite the undereye bags and bedhead, she’s still undeniably gorgeous.
