Beauty How-To: Pati Dubroff Reveals The Secrets Behind Charlize Theron's 'Snow White and the Huntsman' Premiere Make-up

Seriously, does Charlize Theron ever age? When Grazia Daily got up-close-and-personal (ish) to the Oscar-winning actress at the world premiere of 'Snow White and the Huntsman' in London last night, we couldn't help but gawp. Those piercing blue eyes! Those rosebud lips! That twisty blonde hair do! Yep, she had us in raptures, which is exactly why we've grilled the lady behind Charlize's spellbinding beauty look so us mere mortals can give it ago.

The genius Pati Dubroff reveals that Charlize had a SUQQU GANKIN massage before stepping onto the red grassy carpet to get that oh-so-glowy finish and provide a radiant base for the SUQQU foundation. But what we reeeally want to know is how she created those dramatically smokey eyes. 'I used the grey cream shadow with a dome brush to create shape,' Pat tells us. 'Focusing on the outer corners and about halfway onto the eyelid space, I blend and clean with a concealor brush as I go along.

'On the light part of the eyelid, I added a dash of concealor to keep it from smudging then the cream is brought into the crease and under the eyes. I then used black pencil to darken the waterlines and repeated this numerous times to get a rich black.

'I then use dark grey and black eyeshadows to set it and to give more depth to the eyes. I used a matte flesh colored shadow on the open lid, then topped it with a shimmering silver.

'Multiple coats of mascara were used on the upper and lower lashes and finally, I added the lash pieces (they are not a strip and not solo individual lashes but more like a small section) to the outer edges to further elongate and give drama to the eye.

And for those rosy cheeks? 'Cream blush was swirled on the cheekbones and a simple wash of rose beige lip colour kept the rest of the face soft so the eyes and the skin were the big focus.'
 

And here are the products Pat used...

·         Nars cream eyeshadow in Lili Marlene
·         Dior addict lipstick in 322 beige perfection
·         SUQQU Frame Fix creme foundation 202
·         Dior 5 couleurs designer eyeshadow palette in Smoky Design
·         Diorshow Extase mascara in Black
·         RMK Ingenious Jelly Cheeks - JE-05
·         Brow - Anastasia Brow wiz in ash blonde
·         Lashes - shu uemura partial soft cross false eyelashes

So what are you waiting for, beauty fans? It's time to give it a go...

    Treasure trove of British newsreels reveals Top Gear's ancestors

    Long after television grew to dominate American and British homes, newsreel producer British Pathé kept at it, documenting the news of the day until finally ceasing production of new short films in 1970 after 60 years of effort. Last week, all of British Pathé's 85,000 films were put online — including dozens of fascinating, rare and often weird car films that resemble nothing so much as a jet-age Top Gear.

    Nissan tests self-cleaning paint that could make car washes obsolete

    During this vile, never-ending winter, motorists had three options to keep their cars clean: Shell out on regular car washes; slave away in the cold, wind and snow washing it yourself, or screw it and just drive a dirty car. I, like many, chose the last option. But if only I'd been able to test Nissan's self-cleaning car, all my troubles would have washed away.

    I tendered my resignation without securing the next job. Here’s why I don’t mind.

    I have committed a taboo – I have tendered my resignation without securing the next job. The reactions to the announcement were varied but they all pretty much hint at a deep sense of disapproval. “Why did you do that?” It was as if I had renounced my faith. “What are you going to do from now on?” Almost as though a misfortune had incapacitated me. “What does your family have to say about it?” As if I had offered to cook for the next family dinner. I was, and still am, certain of my reasons and motivations for the resignation. However the response I received got me thinking about why people are so concerned about the gaps in their careers. The developed world evolved from an agricultural economy to an industrial economy to the service age, then to the knowledge economy in the late 1990s and 2000s marked by breakthroughs in technological innovations and competition for innovation with new products and processes that develop from the research community. According to The Work Foundation, the knowledge economy is driven by the demand for higher value added goods and services created by more sophisticated, more discerning, and better educated consumers and ...
