Zoe Saldana make-up tips

Zoe Saldana's make-up artist has revealed the secret to re-creating the star's recent glamorous red carpet look.

The stunning actress wowed at the Los Angeles premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness earlier this week wearing a gorgeous gold and beige Rodarte dress that featured tiered ruffles on the neckline, hips and hem.

Zoe completed the look with a smokey metallic eye and gorgeously glamorous red lips.

The star's make-up artist Vera Steimberg told Zoe's red carpet beauty was "chic, French inspired", and explained "as soon as I saw the dress, I knew we had to go with a red lip."

The beauty professional also revealed how to re-create the look.

She created "illuminated, flawless skin" with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage and Illuminating Powder in Candlelight and used Creme Colour in Blaze "for a natural flush of colour" on Zoe's cheeks.

Vera then used soft browns and metallic golds on Zoe's peepers to "balance the bold lipstick that would come later".

She lined the eyes with a brown eye pencil before applying a combination of Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Coffee Ground and Truffle to the outer corners of the eyes for "added definition".

She finished off with "multiple coats" of mascara to the top and bottom lashes for added drama.

For the ultimate in Hollywood glamour, Vera completed Zoe's gorgeous red carpet look with Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Hollywood.

In a recent interview with Allure magazine, Zoe revealed a striking scarlet lipstick is a product which she believes has the power to boost all women's confidence.

"An item I cannot live without and that I'm always with is a red lipstick. I think every woman should find her right shade of red. An ideal red. Red is a very alive colour, it's fire and it's filled with passion, it helps you. It helps your spirit, it's very present," she said.
