Over the past couple of weeks, Nicola Peltz has made a splash on every red carpet she hits, never failing to look fabulous with her fashion and beauty choice.
Now, the 19-year-old Transformers: Age of Extinction actress revealed how she gets red-carpet ready, as she prepped for the NYC premiere of Transformers with Teen Vogue.
“We’ve been with Nicola for the full tour,” Kate Lee, a Chanel celebrity makeup artist, revealed. “In fact, we just got back from Asia yesterday! But Nicola has been gathering attention wherever she goes, which is so nice to see. She’s really good fun and such a pleasure to work with. The best part is, she’s really into fashion and makeup, which makes it so much more fun and inspiring for Adir and me. It’s quite rare to find a girl who enjoys the process.”
As for Nicola’s make-up look for the night, Kate explained:
“We had just done a sleek cat eye for another one of the red carpets, so I wanted a full-on, Bianca Jagger-esque smoky for this evening. Basically, I wanted to create an elongated almond shape with a bit of fun going on in the inside corner. Chanel has new quads coming out next week and they are so soft and super easy to blend. I used a charcoal brown shade from the Tissé Vendôme palette.”
“With a fluffy Chanel #10 brush, I blended it out from the socket and out into that elongated shape, and left the inner corner bare. To blend and diffuse the color, I dusted with a clean Laura Mercier Ponytail Brush. That’s important, you know, to always have a clean fluffy brush and then one to apply colour.”
“On the inner corner, I used this genius, almost mousse-like eye product Chanel makes called Illusion D’Ombre in the color “New Moon,” which served as my highlight. From a distance, it gives a wet effect to the eye and less like a traditional smoky. I also blended it onto the inner third of the lid and a bit on the inside of the nose.”
“There’s no liner at all—I just curled her lashes and did one coat of Inimitable Waterproof Mascara. I didn’t want loads of lashes with this eye, otherwise it would start to look a bit contrived. It’s important to have balance with a bold beauty look.”
Nicola looked AMAZING at the premiere!
