Emily Deschanel at ARCONA Launch Party-Get The Makeup Look

Emily Deschanel was seen at last night’s ARCONA launch party for Eco-Beautiful, a guide to natural beauty & wellness authored by celebrity makeup artist Lina Hanson. The event took place at Vie Eco Boutique in West Hollywood and featured ARCONA mini facials, as well as eco-friendly makeovers.

Emily Deschanel is an actress, best known for playing Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan in the crime drama Bones.

Here is how to get Emily Deschanel’s makeup look as seen at last night’s ARCONA launch party for Eco-Beautiful:

Emily Deschanel’s makeup look was created by Celebrity Makeup Artist Spencer Barnes:

Spencer played up Emily’s beautiful sea green eyes with a subtly smoky, yet luminous look. He kept the rest of her face neutral and fresh, with a hint of a raspberry cheek and sheer raspberry shimmer on her lips. The overall look was inspired by Emily’s vibrant vintage dress and her beautiful glowing skin.

SKIN: Spencer prepped Emily’s skin by first cleansing it with ARCONA’s triad pads. He then spritzed ARCONA’s Mineral Magic and applied ARCONA’s Magic White Ice to hydrate her skin thoroughly.

MAC Naked Honey

MAC Naked Honey will be available in North America June 11, 2009 at all MAC locations, 1.800.588.0070 and and International July 2009.

Bees do it… now MAC does it! Honey that is! As ancient and exotic as Kohl, great beauties have long revered the natural restorative powers of the Golden Elixir.

Following the example of their fabled Queen, Cleopatra, Egyptians bathed in honey and milk. Queen Anne of England used it to silken her hair; from the Ancient Greeks to the Roman Empire, honey has never lost its regal, ever-amber lustre. We love the luxury of its sensual essence…but we also know that it’s a highly efficient and wholesome humectant and healer.

Introducing our limited edition Naked Honey collection – three aspects of golden warmth and sun-made sweetness for the body, layered with two decidedly different honeycomb-derived fragrances – celebrating the secret lives of Queen Bees. Complementary shades of High-Light Powder, Eye Shadow and Lipglass are all the buzz for summer.

How to get America Ferrera’s Makeup Look at 2009 Kids’ Choice Awards:

First, before applying any makeup, Vanessa prepped the skin with Lancôme Genifique, a youth activating concentrate that improves tone, texture and luminosity giving the skin a natural glow.

To create a flawless complexion, Vanessa used both Lancôme Effacernes concealer and Armani Lasting Silk UV SPF 20 Foundation.

Vanessa used Armani Fluid Sheer #2 as a highlighter and applied it with her finger to the cheekbone and brow bone. This gave the complexion a bit of added shimmer.
