This might truly be a first—Rosamund Pike just went to a major event without applying one makeup item that most leading ladies would never face photographers without. Here's a photo; can you guess what I'm referring to?
At the Santa Barbara Film Festival on Sunday, the Gone Girl star looked radiant in softly defined makeup done by Georgie Eisdell, but it's one tidbit from Eisdell's how-to that jumped out at me: "I used Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Nourishing Lip Balm to hydrate the lips and let her natural lip color shine." Wait, hold the phone—natural lip color? Just plain-old lip balm? No added tint whatsoever? This is basically unheard-of. If this is really Pike's natural lip color, then I'm jealous; I wish my own were so perky pink.
I know some of you are going to ask about those glowy cheeks too, so I'll go ahead and share the details. Eisdell applied Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Color in Rose Petal with a little Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow on top for luminosity (I recently told you we're seeing this product on every celebrity lately!).
