Elizabeth Banks shimmered to perfection when she hit the red carpet for the Los Angeles Film Festival premiere of “People Like Us” in a mosaic cutout cocktail dress by J. Mendel.

With a swept up sculpted mane and bold jewelry, makeup artist Fiona Stiles helped Liz put the finishing touches on her fabulous ensemble with a complimenting – yet – non-overpowering beauty look. “Elizabeth has been a busy bee this year! This was our fourth or fifth red carpet event this year so far. I love getting to make her up – she loves clothes, loves makeup and always wants to play with her look. For the premiere, a simple but strong look was what we were going for.”


“I prepped the skin with Yon-Ka Pamplemousse moisturizer, and used Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation in 8.5 as a base, topped with a bit of CHANEL Natural Finish Loose Powder in #30. I contoured her cheeks with INGLOT AMC Cream Blush #94, and added a touch of Benefit Sunbeam as a highlighter.

I kept the brows strong and structured, and used NARS Matte Velvet Pencil in Bahama for a soft, almost stain-like effect on the lips. When I applied the lip, I softened the edges with a Q-Tip so the line wouldn’t feel harsh.

For the eyes I did a soft wash of a warm taupe from the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow palette in Dunes, and lined the eyes just at the lash line with M.A.C. FluidLine Eye-Liner Gel in BlackTrack. I swept a bit of the shadow under the lower lashes just to add a little depth. The taupe underneath almost reads as a shadow from the lashes. It’s a clean look that’s pretty and fresh.

Not tricky, just lovely.”

Striking as always! Will you give this strong look a try?
