To get this easy, no-fuss look, I would use Benefit You Rebel tinted moisturizer and Benetint cheek stain, Fusion's LipFusion Plump + Replump in Healthy neutral beige eyeshadow, brown eyeliner, two coats of Lancome's Hypnose mascara in brown. Don't forget to groom those brows. Try Anastasia's perfect brow grooming pencil in Medium Ash.

For those who want to cop her makeup style: here's one look from daily mail uk.com
Working with Thandie Newton is like getting ready for a night out with the girls, it never feels like work.

She is keen to try out new ideas and has always given me free reign ever since our first shoot together last year for Vogue, when I covered her eyes in bright purple.

For the Bafta’s last week, Thandie asked Giles Deacon to design a gown especially for the event and boy, did he deliver. This raised the beauty ‘bar’ and I had no choice but to truly go to town with the make-up.

Apart from Revolution Tinted Body Moisturiser by DuWop to subtly bronze her décolleté and arms, Thandie’s entire make-up look was created using Chanel cosmetics, as the pigments are strong and pick up beautifully on film.

I began by warming up her skin with Vitalumiere in Naturel and applied Natural Finish Loose Powder in Peche more generously than usual as the make-up had to hold right through to the dance floor of the Miramax party. I applied Reflex blush along her cheekbones. With her eyes, I started by applying the taupe colour from the Desert Rose eye shadow duo over the lid and beneath the eye, blending outward. Then, using a black eye pencil, I drew a line close to the lashes - a real must for creating smokey eyes - and applied River light eyeshadow onto the entire lid, accentuating the outer corner slightly and blending outward, towards the top of the ear.

Evergreen eyeliner was applied on the inner rim and Mac's black liquid liner was applied in a ‘tick’ to polish and define the shape. The finishing touch was lashings of black Inimitable mascara.

A trick of the trade for perfect pouts is to go over the edge of the lips using the foundation sponge and then set with powder. The neutral base makes the most of the lip colour with the added benefit of it ensuring long-lasting perfection.

I decided to combine Thandie's perfectly matte, caramel skin with Glossimer lip-gloss in Unity as it made her lips ‘pop’ and take on a ‘hyper-real’ quality.

For her hair, maestro Kerry Warn applied John Frieda’s 5 minute manager from the Frizz Ease range followed by blow drying to create a mouldable base.

The hair was then teased and pinned into its dramatic shape and sprayed well with John Frieda’s Moisture Barrier hair Spray. Sheer Blonde Wax Shine was then used to tame Thandie’s baby hairs and give a little shine

How-To: Thandie Newton's Premiere Look

Fri, 03/28/2008 - 3:53pm by bellasugar

Earlier this week Thandie Newton showed up at the premiere for her new movie, Run Fat Boy, Run, looking downright glowing. Her subtle eye makeup, rosy cheeks, and pretty smile are perfect for Spring, and since you all seem to be fans of this look, I thought I would show you some quick and easy steps you can follow to get it at home.

To see my tips for re-creating Thandie's look, read more.

  • Face: Thandie has beautiful skin, but that doesn't mean she hasn't had a little help looking flawless underneath those flashbulbs. You will need to choose a medium-to-full coverage foundation, and Cover Girl Queen Collection Oil Free Moisturizing Makeup ($7) in Classic Bronze would match Thandie's complexion perfectly. Brighten your complexion by dabbing a highlighting concealer like Stila Illuminating Concealer ($22) in Bronze under your eyes, brow bone, on your chin, and in the middle of your forehead, blending outward.
  • Eyes: Thandie's eye makeup is simple. Start by applying a light gold, shimmery shadow over the entire lid, like Urban Decay Eyeshadow ($16) in Midnight Cowgirl. Add depth and a bit of smokiness by blending a charcoal shade on the outer third of the lid, as well as right under the eye. Try Shu Uemura Pressed Eye Shadow ($20) in Ir Black. Finish by lining the upper eye and the outside corner of the inner rims with a jet-black liquid liner, like Sephora Brand Long Lasting Liner ($10) in Black.
  • Cheeks: The centerpiece of Thandie's look comes from her perfectly rosy cheeks. To get a flushed glow like hers, start with a cream blush in a bright coral-rose shade, like Paula Dorf Cheek Color Cream ($20) in Dollface. Smile, then with either a tapered makeup sponge or your fingers, rub the blush onto the apples of your cheeks, blending outward towards the top of your ears. To set the color and really make it pop, sweep a complementary shade of blush on top, like Jane Blushing Cheeks Powder Blush ($3.50) in Blushing Glow.
  • Lips: The lip shade used on Thandie just barely enhances her natural lip color. I suggest using a matte lipstick in a pinky-neutral shade, like CoverGirl TruShine Lip Color ($6) in Blushberry Shine. Finish by dabbing a bit of clear gloss in the center of your lower lip, and you'll be good to go!

Thandie Newton: 'The Truth About Charlie'

Newton manages to achieve low-key elegance in every scene in "The Truth About Charlie."

(InStyle) -- In "The Truth About Charlie," Jonathan Demme's remake of the 1963 classic "Charade," Thandie Newton pulls off what few actresses could -- she takes a part first played by Audrey Hepburn and makes it her own.

"Her character was so stylish," says costume designer Catherine Leterrier. "She was high fashion. Thandie's look is different -- it's modern, but inspired by the sixties."

Newton plays Regina, a woman who has returned to Paris after vacationing in Martinique to find that her apartment and bank account are both empty and her husband has been murdered. With nothing more than the clothes in her suitcase, Newton manages to achieve low-key elegance in every scene -- a feat that will make you think twice next time you're packing up your Samsonite.


"The focus was not to make Thandie glamorous, but just a natural, beautiful woman," says makeup artist Nathalie Tissier. To achieve this, Tissier played with an innocent, somewhat naive look, keeping Newton's face as bare as possible while giving her eyes a "wide-eyed, Bambi feel."

Tissier lined Newton's upper lash line with a chocolate brown eye shadow from Christian Dior 5-Colour eye shadow in The Browns. She left the lids bare and coated the end of Newton's lashes with Clinique Naturally Glossy mascara in Jet Black. To open up the eyes and make them look brighter, Tissier blended Christian Dior Ombre Plume in Beige Veil, a light, creamy shadow, just under the arch of Newton's brows.


To be believable, Newton's makeup needed to be almost invisible. Tissier blended Ben Nye concealer under her eyes and smoothed Make Up For Ever Face & Body Liquid Makeup over her entire face to even her complexion. "Her cheeks were always a little pinky -- like she's blushing or has just been running outside," says Tissier, who brushed Shu Uemura Glow On in pink on the apples of Newton's cheeks -- "before powder so it looks glowy."

She went easy on the powder with just a light dusting around the nose and under the eyes, then Tissier topped Newton's lips with Clinique Glosswear in Crystal Clear, a sheer gloss.


"It would kill Thandie's simple sophistication to add too much," says Leterrier. So she opted for clothes that had clean lines and a minimalist mood, accenting with Prada shoes and Miu Miu accessories. In this scene, Newton looks effortlessly sultry in a custom-made cream skirt and raincoat paired with a cashmere sweater set by Prada that shows off her décolletage just so.

"I didn't want to put complicated fabric on such a beautiful figure -- she's better with simple, fine things," says Leterrier. "And she's running all the time so we didn't want anything bulky or complicated." After all, when you're frantically running around Paris trying to solve the mystery of your husband's murder, isn't an understated look the best option?
