Let the beauty inspiration begin! Reese Witherspoon and Rosamund Pike pulled out all the stops for the world premiere of Gone Girl in New York City. We scored details straight from their glam squads so you can recreate their gorgeous hair and makeup looks at home.
Witherspoon, who helped produce the mystery thriller, made quite the entrance with an Old Hollywood hairstyle. To get the look, hair pro Renato Campora settled on a dramatic side part to keep the star's earrings on full display. He then worked in L'Oreal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Volume Inject Mousse ($5; drugstore.com) before blow-drying with a round brush to achieve loads of body and volume. For an ultra-glam finish, he created retro waves with a 1 1/2-inch curling iron. Once her strands cooled, a spritz of hairspray locked the style in place.
Witherspoon's makeup choices proved to be just as flawless for the big night. “I was inspired by the deep red color and classic cut of her Calvin Klein dress,” makeup artist Mai Quynh shares. “I wanted the makeup to be polished and to highlight her beautiful glow.” After prepping her skin with a golden base, Quynh applied Pür Minerals Chateau Cheeks Cream Blush in Flirt ($18; purminerals.com) along the apples of her cheeks for a healthy flush. Using Pür Minerals Soul Mattes Eye Shadow Palette ($32; purminerals.com), she swept on BFF, a cinnamon shade, on the star’s eyelids and blended from the lash line to the crease. She used Confidante to highlight her inner eyes and then switched to Alter Ego, the palette’s plum shadow, for the top and bottom lash lines. Two coats of mascara and YSL’s Gloss Volupte lip gloss in Rose Satine ($32; yslbeautyus.com) finished off the look.
As for the leading lady? Pike, who’s now rocking an edgy undercut, styled her new ’do in a modern chignon. “The point was to have contrast—sleek in the front and a textured style in the back,” says hairstylist Kylee Heath. Starting with damp hair, Heath sprayed Serge Normant Styling Spray ($25; shopsergenormant.com) from roots to ends; then she created a straight center part and blow-dried. Once dry, she sectioned off pieces in the front so that she could later secure into place. “I divided the remaining hair into three horizontal sections and put each horizontal section into individual ponytails,” she tells us. Then, she twisted and pinned the ponytails into messy buns with bobby pins. “I took the front pinned away sections and pulled them back, combing them smooth with a fine tooth comb. I pinned each section blending them in with the mini buns,” Heath adds.
To achieve a look that was classic yet chic, makeup artist Melanie Inglessis kept the focus on the star’s luminous complexion. “After cleansing Rosamund’s skin, I sprayed Roseus Floral Hydrating Toner ($110; baszicare.com) all over the face, leaving it on for five minutes before patting with a tissue, leaving the skin a little moist,” she tells us. “I then applied Vivax Deluge Lift Moisturizer ($480; baszicare.com), which is firming and nutritious and a great makeup base.” Kevyn Aucoin The Pure Powder Glow in Dolline ($37; nordstom.com) gave her complexion the perfect pop of color. After defining Pike’s upper lash line with black kohl eyeliner, she applied Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Mirifique, a cream shadow ($36; chanel.com), along the line and in the crease to soften the effect. Lastly, using Physicians Formula Custom Eye Enhancing Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio ($12; physiciansformula.com), she applied the warm brown shade under her bottom lash line for added depth.
