The lovely, classy and pregnant Claire Danes was glowing in a bright yellow gown and won for Best Actress in a Drama Series for Homeland. I haven’t seen the show but Claire looks stunning thanks to Matin Maulawizada and Laura Mercier.  I love her piercing eyes!

Look by: Matin Maulawizada, Global Artistry Director for Laura Mercier Matin describes his inspiration for Claire’s look as a “casual nod to old Hollywood glamour.”


EYES: Claire’s smoky, seductive eyes were the focal point of the look.

  • Matin used Laura Mercier Eye Pencil in Extreme Black ($20) to define Claire’s eyes.  He then heavily lined her eyes using Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil in Black Gold ($20). The pencil’s golden base colour complemented the star’s electric yellow dress.
  • Matin completed the dramatic look by applying Laura Mercier Metallic Crème Eye Colour in Burnished Copper ($22) and Laura Mercier Sequin Eye Colour in Black Ice ($22) to Claire’s lids.

LIPS: Nude lips modernized the glamorous look.

  • Matin layered Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Praline ($20) and Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Angelic ($26) to achieve Claire’s soft, matte lip colour. Review of Smooth Creme Lip Colour here.

FACE: Matin chose to enhance the expecting star’s natural glow and created a “healthy flush using bright pink blush.”

  • To achieve a flawless face, Matin first applied Laura Mercier Moisture Suprême Foundation in Sunny Beige ($43). Review here.
  • He then covered imperfections using Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-3 ($30).
  • Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Oleander ($22) was then heavily applied to Claire’s cheeks.
  • The look was set with Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder in Translucent
