When makeup artist Sophie Haig sat down to prep Camille Rowe for the Vanity Fair Oscar party, she was thinking about a palette of tawny, bombshell nudes that played off the French model's dark honey blonde hair and seventies St-Tropez-by-way-of-California vibe. The secret lay in delicate layers of peachy bronze tones—tapped onto the high points of the face or swirled over cheeks—and soft contour that emphasized Rowe's bone structure and grey-blue eyes. Here's a step by step guide to how Haig created the look—which looks as alluring with jeans and a tee as it does with a glittering Céline slip dress.
"After prepping the skin, I used the Atelier II and III shades to sculpt the face and to give a soft contour to features."
"I blended lightly around Camille's temples and cheekbones, then went over those same areas with Beauty Butter Bronzer in Coup de Soleil for a little more emphasis on the red carpet."
"Clay was the perfect color to give definition to the brows but subtle enough not to take focus off the eyes."
"A little glassy highlight over the cheekbones, inner corners of the eyes, down the bridge of the nose and on the Cupid's bow."
"After highlighting areas that naturally catch the light, I went over the top of the cheekbones with Peau de Pêche to set everything and give a real pop."
"To create a soft '70s shape, I used a chocolate/brick pencil at the lash lines that I buffed out and up with the Chocolat shade from the Eye Pods Les Jours palette. Then I blended everything with a little bit of Tabac and Bisou to keep it warm and delicate."
"Just the right tone to compliment Camille’s skin and blue eyes!"
“With Les Nudes, I customized a combination of the shades to give Camille’s natural lips a little oomph.”
"Lashes play a big role in this look—many coats of mascara on both top and bottom play up a nod to the Seventies!"
