Known famously for her role as Miriam “Midge” Maisel on Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Rachel Brosnahan shines on the red carpet at the 2019 Critics Choice Awards tonight. (She won the Best Actress category!) Get the breakdown of her look by Makeup Artist Lisa Aharon using Revlon.

After Lisa prepped Rachel’s skin, she buffed and blended with Revlon PhotoReady Candid Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation in Porcelain from the center of the face outward. She used Revlon PhotoReady Candid Antioxidant Concealer in Banana under the eyes and in the spots that needed a little more coverage. She explains, “Both are lightweight with a natural finish that I love”. To finish the complexion, she lightly dusted Revlon PhotoReady Candid Setting Powder keeping it mostly in the center of the face and forehead.


A cool rose tone is one of Lisa’s favorites to use on Rachel's porcelain skin, so she used Revlon Powder Blush in the shade Rosy Rendezvous. She started on the apples of the cheeks and blended slightly under the cheek bone towards the hairline.  Then, she patted Revlon PhotoReady Insta- Fix Highlighting Stick in Pink Light to make the highpoint of the cheekbones radiate slightly.

ColorStay Brow Creator in Soft Brown helped her define, shape and slightly fill in Rachel’s brows. “Filling in and sharpening the brows helps to frame the eye and guide where the shadow is placed next,” she said. Since the suit was clean and white, she decided to have fun with color on the eyes. She used Revlon ColorStay Crème Eyeshadow in Merlot as the base layer for a bold effect. She kept the shape a bit 60’s to complement the high ponytail.  To add dimension and brightness, she added the light purple shade of the Revlon Colorstay Looks Book Palette in Insider and used a blend of the light purple and pink shade from the same palette for the inner corner of the eye as well.   Revlon ColorStay Crème Gel Eyeliner in Black helped to intensify the lash line.  A few coats of Revlon Volumazing Mascara added both length and thickness to Rachel’s already beautiful lashes.  

Lisa used Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick because it has a rich amount of pigment but also delivers the hydration she needed for Rachel’s lips. After trying a few lighter shades, they landed on Bare Affair to complete her mod make up look.
