To start, Arlt applied an even layer of MAC Matchmaster Foundation ($35;, then followed by sweeping on the Studiofix Powder ($27; to set the effect. A touch of powder blush in Devil ($17;, a rich terracotta hue, was blended onto the apples of the star's cheeks to impart a rosy flush. Moving on to the eyes, Arlt used MAC's Amber Lights eye shadow all over as a base color, then applied the All That Glitters hue ($16 each; in the center of Gurira's lids. He added extra dimension by blending the eggplant-toned shadow in Sketch ($16; into her crease.

After defining Gurira's upper lash line with a sweep of MAC Blacktrack Fluidline ($16;, he applied the #3 falsies ($17;, adding another layer of the Fluidline over the top to hide the seam of the faux lashes. Arlt ran MAC's Eye Pencil in Feline ($16; along her waterline and blended the chocolate brown shadow in Embark ($16; under her lower lashes to impart a subtle smoky effect. The glossy lip served as the finishing touch. Arlt filled in Gurira's pout with the lip pencil in Currant ($16;, and mixed the Lipglass shades in Desire and Rebel ($15;, which gave off a slight berry-tinted sheen.
