Get The Look: Zoe Saldana’s Retro Makeup

May 6, 2013

We’re loving Zoe Saldana’s retro-inspired makeup at the London premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness. Here’s how her celebrity makeup artist Vera Steimberg created the look so you can steal Zoe’s gorgeous style.


Vera created Zoe’s flawless finish using Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-6 to cover imperfections. Next, she add natural radiance using Laura Mercier Mineral Illuminating Powder in Candlelight.

To finish the look, Vera applied Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Blaze to Zoe’s cheekbones and layered Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Spiced Cider on top.


Vera applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Color in Portofino Red on Zoe’s lips, giving her a “bright, yet elegant final look.”


When the lips are bold, the eyes need to be soft. Vera applied Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Terracota all over the lid and then added Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Violet Sky on the outer corners to create a subtle smokey eye.

For added contour, Vera mixed Laura Mercier Luster Eye Colour in Bamboo and Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Coffee Ground and applied to the eyelids.

Vera lined the eyes using Laura Mercier Crème Eye Liner in Espresso to define the lash line.

To finish the look, Vera coated the lashes in Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara in Black
