This is Why Dakota Johnson (and Her Glam Team) Like Orange Eyeshadow
Dakota Johnson’s eye-popping orange shadow look is No. 21 on The Hollywood Reporter’s list of Hollywood’s 25 Best Beauty Moments of 2015.
“I was looking at photos of brunettes from the ’70s, specifically Jaclyn Smith and Anjelica Huston, and I kept seeing orange makeup,” recalls Dubroff about what prompted her to reach for a vivid peach eye shadow in her kit. She brushed Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Eyeshadow in Rouge-Gorge from eyelid to brow on the 26-year-old, who was wearing a floral Alexander McQueen gown. The pop of orange against Johnson’s flawless complexion with a soft lip was an acclaimed “peaches and cream” moment. Says Johnson: “That was something new for me. Pati made me feel fresh and like I really belonged in that dress.” Dubroff, who usually accentuates the actress’ mouth (“She likes her natural lip bumped up a few shades, so I had to convince her to go softer on the lip”), veered from what worked so well earlier this year while promoting Fifty Shades of Grey. Was it worth it? Says Dubroff, “Dakota loved it, and social media went crazy over it!”
“I love health and vitality,” says Dubroff, who’s featured in The Hollywood’s Reporter’s Beauty Issue with Johnson. “Mimicking healthy skin is really my goal. I spend a majority of the time that I’m doing makeup making sure the skin looks healthy, glowing, perfected but not at all like there’s no detectable trace of foundation.”
