Buy the YSL products Zoë Kravitz used for her 2017 Emmy look
Zoë Kravitz is widely regarded as the chillest, most gorgeous person alive. So it stands to reason that when we can cop a list of her award show beauty products from YSL Beauty’s PR, we’re gonna share it with the world.
Zoë was recently named the new face of Yves Saint Laurent Beauty — a job her low-key, French-girl-esque self was born for. So to top off her incroyable rainbow-skirted Dior gown, she wore a full face of YSL Beauty to the 2017 Emmy Awards, where she was accompanied by her “Big Little Lies” castmates.
Scroll down to get the deets. And gird your loins for a few plot twists, involving setting powder on the lips and a complete and utter lack of eyeshadow!
Makeup artist Nina Park pulled inspiration for Zoë’s look from her dress — “vibrant, playful yet sophisticated and refined,” she says. “I was immediately drawn to the gradation of ochres, nectar, corals on the skirt.”
Anyone who uses the word “ochre” knows what the heck is up. But I digress.
“We both agreed we wanted to bring out a coral from the dress to be used on the lip,” Nina continues.
The base for Zoë’s dewy and fresh complexion (besides insane genes) was YSL Beauty’s Forever Youth Liberator Serum, Nina says. Then, the skin was primed with Saint Laurent Top Secrets Instant Moisture Glow.
Souffle D’Éclat Sheer and Radiant Loose Powder in 02 Natural Finish was her secret weapon for setting the base makeup without looking cakey.
She used Touche Éclat Highlighter on the tops of Zoë’s cheeks and the bridge of her nose “to create soft dimension.”
For Zoë’s brows, Nina wanted to complement the pop of color she’d soon be adding to her lips. So she elongated the arches, filling them in with Dessin des Sourcils eyebrow pencil number two, dark brown. Then, she brushed them up for “a natural, boyish feel,” which is still clearly ultra glam.
Now for the eye look.
“Zoë loves a cat eye,” Nina said. “We created this with Dessin du Regard Eyeliner in #7. Then, using the black in Tuxedo Couture Variation Palette, I accentuated the cat shape by stamping in the shadow.”
She topped off the look with Volume Effect Faux Cils waterproof mascara on Zoë’s top and bottom lashes.
And the grand finale: the lips.
“We spent a lot of time going through options for the perfect coral lip,” Nina said. “We decided on Rouge pur Couture in 59 Melon D’Or for the beautiful satin finish.”
To truly mattify it, Nina blotted the first coat of lippie, then reapplied. Then — plot twist — she lightly set the lips with Poudre Compact Radiance Perfection Universelle.
So, now you know how to get Zoë’s cat-eyed, coral-lipped, goddessly Emmy 2017 look. Go forth and break hearts!
