Saoirse Ronan turns back on contouring

Saoirse Ronan's make-up artist Talia Sparrow has given the low-down on the star's Tonys look.

Saoirse Ronan embraced the new "sculpting without contouring" beauty trend at the 2016 Tony Awards.

The Brooklyn star stunned in pale pink gown at Sunday night’s (12Jun16) glitzy New York awards ceremony, held annually to honour the best in Broadway talent. The Zac Posen dress featured a tiny triangular cut-out on her stomach, but was otherwise unfussy.

Make-up artist Talia Sparrow was responsible for Saoirse’s equally low key beauty look, explaining that the aim was to bring out the 22-year-old’s youthful radiance.

“We went for a modern and romantic look with youthful, dewy skin," she told America’s InStyle. "We wanted to keep the look clean and fresh, while sculpting without contouring."

Giving a rundown of the products used, Talia shares that Laura Mercier was her brand of choice for the evening’s look. The company’s Blemish-less Foundation Primer was layered underneath the make-up brand’s Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation. A little concealer was also added, as well as Face Illuminators, which was used in a lighter and darker shade to sculpt her cheekbones.

For the eyes Talia went for pink toned eyeshadows to create a rose gold finish, eyeliner and then a few sweeps of mascara. Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Colour in Petal Pink lip gloss finished the make-up off.

Saoirse wasn’t the only actress to opt for soft shades on the red carpet; Michelle Williams got it spot on with a white ruched Louis Vuitton dress and Tony nominee Sara Bareilles’ peach Gomez-Gracia gown also hit the right notes.

Girls star Allison Williams added some edge to the pale trend, wearing a white DKNY jumpsuit teamed with black heels and a grey clutch bag.
