Get the Look: Rachel Weisz, The Lobster Premiere

Rachel Weisz looked gorgeous in green at the premiere of her film The Lobster during the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. I caught up with her makeup artist, Nick Barose, and hairstylist, Sascha Breuer, to get the scoop on Rachel’s red carpet glam.


The Louis Vuitton outfit has this olive green neutral tone in it so it’s called for something more modern, simple and neutral too to make it look cool on the red carpet. The look is monochromatic peachy, warm tone all over with simple wash of bronze on lips and berry pink nude on cheeks and lips. It’s the perfect way to wear neutral tone in Autumn winter and look fresh, pretty, not washed out.

Face, Eyes, Lips 

Keep it sheer and fresh, avoid thick foundation and powder, so skin looks fresh, luminous which is key for a simple look like this (On Skin- La Mer Reperative Skin Tint). Dust a light translucent powder on T zone. I used Tom Ford RunWay Colour A/W15 on cheeks and lips. On cheeks I love blending on apples using Beautyblender, on lips I tapped the color on so it’s more of a stain. That looks like it’s her own lip color and not very “lipstick-y”. Add lip balm on top just for subtle sheen (Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1). Since the look is simple and not as colorful, it’s important to define brows a bit to darken and define (Brow Lift in Brooke’s). I added bronzy tone liquid eyeshadow on her upper lids and smudged the edges with Q Tips (Armani FW RunWay EyeTint) then added two coats of black mascara.

Tip Box 

I’m definitely looking forward to see more of the dark burgundy lips and the return of blush this season, Time to diss the dated, harsh and fake contour look. Keeping it fresh is where it’s at!

The best part about working with someone with such a presence is that styling them is less about making a statement and more about just

letting the person’s natural grace and loveliness come through. And so we opted for soft, loose waves to emphasize, and not embellish. We’ve added just a hint of volume at the roots along the part and it creates the most interesting effect. The hair drapes around the face and instead of falling flat down the sides it really frames the face and it’s got character of its own. You can curl the ends inwards for a more symmetrical and more polished effect or wear them in a more feminine relaxed vibe. To finish, we’ve used a light misting of 2 Day Volume hairspray to control any fly-away strands and seal the volume. Always hold the can at arms length and mist your hair for an even coating of spray – never angle the spray at the roots.

Tip Box 

By blow-drying your hair in the opposite direction to its natural growth, you are creating real root lift by encouraging the hair to lift away from the head. Remember to switch to the cool-shot setting on your hairdryer before moving to a different section of hair, the cold air will fix the root lift in place and help provide longer lasting volume. When the whole head of hair is completely dry, use your fingers or a brush to style your hair as normal. Try to avoid brushing the hair too much, or you will risk loosing some of the volume you just created.
