Get the Look: Genesis Rodriguez at the Critics’ Choice Awards
It’s #womancrushwednesday and at Press Pass Latino we’re gushing over Latina actress Genesis Rodriguez. This past weekend she looked absolutely stunning on the blue carpet of the 20th annual Critics’ Choice Awards at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.
Rodriguez, who voiced Honey Lemon in the animated feature film Big Hero Six, mesmerized fans and photographers in a Spring 2015 floor-length, cotton-candy-blue gown by designer Reem Acra.
There’s no doubt that the Venezuelan diva rocked the 70’s-glam-inspired look with poise and confidence. But you don’t have to be a star like Genesis Rodriguez to flaunt her flawless look.
To get the look, follow celebrity make-up artist Kayleen McAdam’s three easy steps:
STEP 1: Prep your skin using a moisturizer which provides a luminous canvas. After applying the moisturizer, apply foundation. For Rodriguez, McAdams used L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation in Natural Beige ($14.99). On the apple of her cheeks McAdams dabbed CK One Color Skin Illuminator in Warm.
Tip: Use a dense foundation brush to buff foundation to allow the product to blend perfectly.
STEP 2: For the eyes, Kayleen lined the top and bottom lash line of Genesis’ eyes with L’Oréal Paris Infallible Smokissime in Brown Smoke ($9.99). She recommends a lightly blending out of the eyeliner as well as applying a shimmery brown shade from CK One Palette to set the liner in place. McAdams pulled from the root of the lashes and applied L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Intenza in Blackest Black ($8.99).
Tip: Turn the brush length wise to really coat each lash.
STEP 3: For the finishing touch and to rock a pout like Rodriguez’s, you can apply L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Lipcolor in Neverending Nutmeg ($12.99)
