Marion Cotillard turned heads at Monday’s Costume Institute Gala at The Met in New York. The French beauty paired her midnight blue Christian Dior gown with dramatic side-swept hair and luminous makeup by Hourglass. "The dress makes a graphic statement and we complemented it with glowing skin, iridescent eyes and richly pigmented lips," says makeup artist Christophe Danchaud.
Complexion: Danchaud began by prepping Marion’s skin with Hourglass’ No. 28 Primer Serum. He followed with Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup in 1.5 and Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer in Pearl. He finished with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light applied all over the face to create a soft-focus effect.

Eyes: Danchaud used Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow in Exhibition. He began by applying the shimmer lilac shade all over her lids. He then applied the dark mauve shade in the duo close to her lash line and to the outer corner of her eye. He extended the mauve shade to underneath her eyes, close to the lash line. To lighten up his handiwork, he used a gold pigment on the lids. Finally, he applied several coats of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara.

  1. Wow, stunning. The eye shadow? It just looks amazing on this gorgeous woman. I am not entirely thrilled about the dress but who needs a dress when you have that face! She can put a sack of potatoes on and still look like a star. Now, what do I have to do to get her perfect, clear skin, besides being born again....

    1. I agree, she is unbelievably gorgeous, and could wear a sack of potatoes and still look stunning! <3

  2. gawgeous! now that is a line that i know my sensitive skin can handle. i'm looking forward to my next 100 mile dash to sephora to get my hands on it!

    1. I agree-- she's just so stunning! Definitely worth loading up on your Hourglass favorites on your next Sephora dash! :-)

  3. the makeup is gorgeous. i really love the eye look but i think the hair's a bit too stiff for the complete look

    1. The makeup is definitely stunning, and Marion is just such a radiant beauty! Her hair is definitely rather theatrical! :)
