Get Maria Bello’s Look

For promotions for her latest film, “Prisoners,” in which she stars opposite Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal, Maria Bello turned to the fella who BeansTalk believes is the best living make-up artist today: Nick Barose (who happens to be an amazing photographer, too). 

Barose shares secrets about how to get her look: “Maria Bello’s sexy smoky eyes, [can be achieved] quick[ly] and mess free, avoiding [the usual pitfalls, with] all the black powder shadows [that] fall under the eyes. 

I apply the Talika The Eye mask under her eyes, to add hydration. 

While [the mask’s] on, I created the smoky eyes using long-wearing black-liner pencil ( VV Le Jolie in Charbon). 

Instead of using the powder eyeshadow dry, which can fall and crumble, I wet the brush and used the shadow wet, so it goes on creamier and won't fall (Dolce Gabbana Shadow in Femme Fatale); this way, I can finish [both] eyes quick[ly] without worrying about the mess. If [either] the bottom lashes’ mascara [or the] powder fall[s] then, the eye mask catches it. 

I then peel it off, and apply foundation and concealer under her eyes.”

Thanks for the tip, Nick!
