Emily Ratajkowski Masters the French Makeup Game in Paris – Vogue.com
Emily Ratajkowski is getting the hang of this whole Parisian beauty thing. A quintessential California girl at heart, EmRata’s aesthetic menu typically centers on tousled lengths, nude lips, sky-skimming lashes, and strategic ab reveals. But some time spent in the City of Light—under the guidance of makeup artist Hung Vanngo, no less—seems to be eliciting a desire to ramp up all things above-the-neck. Though, as it’s France, the elevation comes with a side of nonchalance, a winning combination that is more challenging than meets the eye.
Case in point: After the Jacquemus runway show, which was held at the Musée Picasso, the party found Ratajkowski serving up a look classique: Show-stopping red-orange lips defined by its glaze of gloss (as well as her signature plump pout). Lengths were styled in a rumpled wave that offered a familiar frame for the flicks of liner and amplified lashes that completed the doe-eyed gaze. And rather than following the splashy moment with a one-up, the morning after saw the model-turned-actress embracing a no-makeup makeup look that was pared-down and demure (and very French) at Dior’s front row. Those same lengths were neatly tucked behind ears, her lips were coated in a transparent gloss and her eyes were edged in with a touch of highlighter; smudged onyx made a subtle showing under the lower lashline. The shared factor was no doubt EmRata’s glowing complexion and compulsion for contoured blush (that L.A. lean) but it’s the contrast of the looks that demonstrates her mastery of what defines the Parisian allure: The ability to move seamlessly from French femme fatale to angelic ingenue without skipping a beat.
