Jessica Hart – H&M x Balmain Collection Launch



Celebrity makeup artist Julie Harris worked with Jessica Hart for the Balmain x H&M Collection Launch on Tuesday, October 20 in New York, NY.

“I was inspired by the strong shape of her dress, so we decided a pop of teal on the eyes would complement that and the graphic design.”


“I prepped Jessica’s skin with Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence.

 I started off with a light coat of Laura Mercier Smooth Flawless Finish Foundation in Buff and blended with a damp Beauty Blender. I then highlighted under the eyes with Bobbi Brown Concealer and shaded her cheekbones wifh Chanel Bronzing Cream. To finish off the base, I highlighted Jessica’s cheekbones, brow bone and the inner corner of her eyes with Jessica’s own Luma Cosmetics Illuminator.

I shaped her brows naturally with Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Ash BlondeTo give a graphic shape to the eyes, I applied Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerize Cream Shadow in Cleopatra to her lid and blended it outward. I swept NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Pasiphae over top and blended it into the crease with a pony brush. I applied Lancôme Hypnose Drama in Black to the top lashes only.

I lined her lips with Kevyn Aucoin ‘The Flesh Tone’ Lip Pencil in MediumI applied a hint of color with Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Color in Rosewood.

To finish, I lightly dusted Urban Decay Naked Translucent Powder in Medium Light onto the T-Zone with a powder brush to take down any shine for the red carpet.”
