Don’t miss this » Jessica Chastain Cannes 2012-inspired makeup

Okay, so this isn’t the look that I’m dying to share with you (that one should be up soon, though; maybe next week?) but it’s a look nonetheless! I did a green-and-gold tutorial for She Said Beauty this week, inspired by the image below of Jessica Chastain at this year’s Cannes festival. It… well, to be totally honest, it turned out completely different from her look, but I guess that’s why they say “inspired,” right?

Anyhow; I’m going to go lament the fact that I don’t look at all like Chastain (and for that matter, Michael-bloody-Fassbender; it’s is extremely unfair that we can’t all have faces chiseled out of stone) by eating copious amounts of inappropriate starches (and, seriously, if anyone caught that reference, you can be my new best friend) in the corner.

See more photos & read the tutorial here.

Featured in this look

EYES: Sephora Moonshadow Baked Eyeshadow Palette in In the Nude, MAC Eye Shadow in Humid (Frost), NYX HD Eye Shadow Base, Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara.

SKIN: MAC Powder Blush in Harmony (Matte), Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer in Light, Senna Sheer Face Color Powder Blush in Très Jolie. 

LIPS: Bite Beauty High Pigment Lip Pencil in Bouquet.


“All the time” is an appropriate time for another irrelevant image of Michael Fassbender’s face, because seriously, have you seen that face.

  • Ahhhh FASSBENDER! I just came back from seeing Prometheus and he was SO GOOD in it. My fave after Noomi Rapace.

    Love the look! Even if it's inspired, and you say it turned out differently, it's very Jessica Chastain anyway! I love it!

    • Thanks, Annick! :)

      I'm still trying to decide if I want to see Prometheus – I'm absolutely terrible with anything that has a horror or thriller aspect to it, but on the flipside, sci-fi & Fassbender. :P

    I like your cheekbones better, in fact I would turn down Fassbender himself for you and those perfect cheekbones!

    Love the look, I think you've adapted it well to suit your eye shape and coloring. The lippy is to die for.

    • Aww, Jenny *glomps cheeks* :p Stop being such a flatterer; my face is boring!

  • I have no idea what you wrote, I didn't even look at the makeup, I'm totally mesmerized by this picture 0_0

    • Wait, we're talking about the Fassbender photograph, right? Because — that is one hell of an image. I'm not sure what part of me loves it more; the photography geek, the post-production geek, or the crazy fangirl.

      (If I had to bet, my money's on my inner post-production geek. Shh, don't tell!)

    Don't make me drool!

    And your face IS already chiseled out of stone, so I have nooo idea what you're talking about!

    • LIES. My face is chiseled out of marshmallows and crêpe paper! :D

    Soulmate, are we one person?

    (clearly the question is purely rhetorical, because we are. and clearly I didn't need to include this parenthetical note, because you already think it, but I think we like to talk to ourselves, yes?)

    • Tee hee. We actually have to have been, originally, for given definitions of soulmate! ;o)

      (That is a yes; we are taking this as a yes.)

    Beautiful eye makeup, and mmm… Fassbender. Between him and McAvoy I was ready to declare X Men First Class the best movie of 2011.

    …..I also started religiously contouring my face after that movie because I want his cheekbones.

    • Thanks, Selina! I'm not so sure about *best* movie, but XMFC was certainly quite pretty ;)

      (And hey, contouring inspiration! Anything that inspires contouring gets a gold star in my books :D)
