â€œTexture is one of the key components to a successful look, whether itâ€™s on the red carpet, an editorial shoot, or in real life,â€ makeup artist Rachel Goodwin says. â€œThe understanding and knowledge of textures is something we, as artists, bring to the table that most women donâ€™t know about.â€ So Goodwin turned Bensonâ€™s skin matte while adding gloss to her eyes, or made her cheekbones dewy to set off a matte red lip. â€œThat mix is really the key to sophistication.â€
Goodwin used Elizabeth Ardenâ€™s 8 Hour Cream ($20) to turn Bensonâ€™s eyelids super shiny.
Goodwin used Armaniâ€™s Maestro Foundation ($65) to give Bensonâ€™s skin a matte finish. â€œI used Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour ($57) to sculpt her cheeks and used the same shade on her eyelids and underneath the lower lashline.â€ Bensonâ€™s lush lashes are courtesy of Chanelâ€™s magical Le Volume Mascara ($30) and those killer brows? Filled in with Votre Vuâ€™s Arche de Triumph Brow Gel ($30).
Hourglassâ€™ Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick ($28) in Icon is the secret to Bensonâ€™s true-red lip.
That thing Goodwin mentioned about texture? This is the perfect example. Bensonâ€™s slightly glossy lids and almost shiny brown lip (thatâ€™s Hourglassâ€™ Nude Lip Stylo ($30) in #2, by the way) pop against her matte skin. And if you werenâ€™t sure, yes, the brown lip is definitely back.
