It takes a lot to distract from Garrett Hedlund, but Kirsten Dunst’s radiant skin and soft curls did the trick at the Saint Laurent fall show in Paris last week. Hairstylist Andy LeCompte worked wonders with Dunst’s natural texture and makeup artist Lauren Andersen mastered dewy skin.

Skin

Andersen prepped Dunst’s skin with Hourglass’ No. 28 Primer Serum ($65) then smoothed on Cle de Peau’s Silky Cream Foundation ($120). For flawless coverage she applied the foundation with a brush, pressed the product into Dunst’s skin with her fingers, and blended with a wet makeup sponge. The glow was courtesy of Giorgio Armani’s Fluid Sheer ($59) in No. 2 Shimmering Beige, which Andersen applied on top of the actress’ cheekbones and Hourglass’ Ambient Lighting Powder ($45) in Radiant Light. To finish? Chanel’s Powder Blush ($43) in In Love.

Eyes

“I wanted her eyes to be soft and golden,” Andersen says. “So I applied a light gold shadow on the lid and a warm gold on her lower lash line instead of eyeliner.” (Try Maybelline’s ExpertWear Luminous Lights Eyeshadow Quad ($7) in Gold Lights.) She curled Dunst’s lashes and applied a “healthy dose” of Studio Gear’s Definitive Mascara ($15) on top. For the bottom lashes, Andersen held the wand vertically and painted each lash. Next up: brows. “I defined the brows by brushing them down, filling them in along the very top line, and then brushing them up and filling in the bottom,” Andersen says. She used Votre Vu’s Arch de Triumph ($24) in Fair.

Lips

By Terry’s Rose Balm ($59) softened Dunst’s pout before Andersen applied Avon’s Totally Kissable Lipstick ($8) in Smitten Red. “I did one coat with a brush and then had her blot it so it looked like a tinted berry stain,” Andersen says.

Hair

Dunst arrived with air-dried waves, the perfect base for LeCompte’s effortless look. To create a “soft, matte shine” he ran a dab of Wella’s Velvet Amplifier Styling Primer ($16) through the actress’ tresses and broke out a flat iron. “The trick is to follow the hair’s natural wave pattern,” he says. He gently defined the actress’ waves with the iron and smoothed the ends straight. Wella’s Shimmer Delight Shine Spray ($13) lent polish to the ends and Serge Normant’s Meta Revive Dry Shampoo ($25) added rough texture all over. To finish, LeCompte brushed Dunst’s hair with Sheila Stotts’ Application Brush ($38). “It’s like natural dream hair,” he says.
