But besides her beaded headpiece, dazzling lizard brooch and ultra-sleek Givenchy gown, we couldn’t help notice how absolutely radiant her makeup looked. And a large part of her look was thanks to celebrity makeup artist, Charlotte Tilbury. Salma’s skin looked flawless, did her killer cheekbones and radiant glow. As for the eyes?

Those of you looking to take your makeup to a red-carpet level are in luck. Here’s a step by step guide on how to obtain Salma’s stunning “vintage vamp” makeup look:
The key to obtaining Salma’s glow-from-within complexion starts with the skin. Charlotte first applied her celeb-prized Charlotte’s Magic Cream followed by her Magic Eye Rescue, which she lightly tapped around the delicate eye area. Next, she enhanced Salma’s flawless complexion by blending her Magic Foundation with the Light Wonder Foundation. This created for an illuminated and smoother canvas. Charlotte then applied the Magic Away Concealer to conceal areas that needed a little extra coverage. To contour and add extra definition to Salma’s stunning cheekbones, Charlotte lightly brushed the Filmstar Bronze and Glow in light/medium on the cheeks, jawline, temples, and nose. Next, for that highly coveted megawatt glow, the Charlotte applied the Hollywood Beauty Light Wand on the top of Salma’s cheekbones. Lastly, she added a pop of color with the Cheek to Chic blusher in Climax.

To recreate Salma’s smoldering smokey eye look, Charlotte used her Vintage Vamp Luxury Palette and followed her four-step sequence of Prime, Enhance, Smoke and Pop. Next, she elongated her eyes by creating a cat eye effect with the Rock ‘n’ Kohl eyeliner in Barbarella Brown. To add further intensity, Charlotte finished Salma’s eye makeup with her Legendary Lashes Volume 2 mascara which she applied on her top and bottom lashes.

Charlotte used her Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Supersize Me to create the appearance of fuller lips. Next, she applied her Supermodel Lips lipstick in the shade Super Model, a matte, natural-looking nude-rose shade. Salma obtained a glossy finish by applying a layer of the nourishing Collagen Lip Bath.
To perfect the skin and brighten her complexion, Charlotte applied a light dusting of the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder in shades 1 and 2 as the final step before heading for the red carpet.
