Makeup by Maki Ryoke using Charlotte Tilbury  for  “House of Cards” beauty Kate Mara stunned on the red carpet in her angelic J. Mendel gown that was paired with a not-so-innocent Charlotte Tilbury iconic look known as “The Rock Chick,” which was artfully created by makeup artist Maki Ryoke. When asked how this look came to be, Ryoke makeup artist beams, “She let me decide! I recommended this look, and she trusts me. The dress is so pure and light, so I wanted to add a modern twist. Kate loved it!”

Here are a few key steps that makeup artist Maki Ryoke created the look:
1. Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow was applied lightly all over the face to create a flawless soft focus and an instant “spotlight” effect, which acted as the perfect base to the Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder foundation in 2 & 4 Fair that was specially mixed to match Kate’s complexion.


2. Rid the face of any unwanted oils with a dusting of Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-powder in Medium 2

3. The Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette in The Rock Chick for a highly pigmented, mesmerizing smoky eye with the use of four slate-colored shades

4. For a sexy, strong cat-eye, Charlotte Tilbury Rock ‘N’ Kohl Eye Pencil in Bedroom Black was applied around the entire eye, including the waterline. To further accentuate and enhance, Charlotte Tilbury Feline Flick was used to accentuate the lash line.

5. To add an unbeatable red carpet-worthy glow, use Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow to highlight and sculpt the cheek, nose, the top of the lip as well as shoulders and décolletage
