Celebrity Hits and Misses – Rachel Weisz

rachel-weisz

Oh lawd! I am going to have to eat my words. I adore Rachel Weisz and she has always been such a hit in my book. However, this makeup scheme is not flattering.

I am not sure what to source as the downfall of this look. Rachel is such a natural beauty and this caked on mess is just sad. Rachel walked the red carpet premiere of the The Lovely Bones (which is a fantastic book and will hopefully be an equally fantastic movie directed by Peter Jackson who also brought The Lord of the Rings trilogy to life).

Her foundation almost has a grey tint to it which could be the real issue. Or perhaps the overpowering lipstick and gigantic eyelashes are hiding the true beauty in her. This violates my golden rule of playing up one and only one feature. If you are going to be rocking bright red lips, you need to create a balance by downplaying the eyes. As you can see by Rachel’s look above, highlighting both features gives the appearance of a clown.

It is truly a shame because I think if she had just stuck with playing up the eyes and went with a more demure shade of lipstick (or vice versa) she would once again be reining on my hit list.

Clown? You really don’t know what the hell you are talking about. Rachel looks good, from the make up to the dress. Plus, you seem to have a personal beef considering that there are better pictures of the event that show how great Rachel looks, not the photo which you posted on your site that has flash bulbs in Rachel’s face, which does not show her true color, which in the other pictures of the event, does not show any gray tint.

The only clown here is you.

Sorry, but I have to agree that Rachel’s makeup is not flattering. I can tell that the flashes are not helping, but makeup artists know that their clients will be subject to harsh flashes and usually take that into consideration. Skin tone aside, the lipstick is just too harsh in combination with the strong brows and smokey eyes. She would look gorgeous with a nude lip.

There is nothing wrong with her make up. Give it up, no one cares. And Karen, you have no fashion sense.
