Lily Collins is popular for all kinds of things, and it all depends on who you ask. Query a Netflix regular, and they’ll tell you about her pattern-on-pattern Emily in Paris looks, or the black-and-white artistry of her latest release, Mank. However as soon as you introduce her to a makeup fan, you’ll learn one of two things: how amazing her brows are and how the mascara of Lily Collins is really on the spot. Never more than the 2020 MTV Movie & TV Awards, where the star turned up in Saint Laurent’s PVC dress and one of Lancôme’s newest makeup launches.
Long-time makeup artist Fiona Stiles posted her entire beauty breakdown on her own Instagram profile, confirming that Collins was sporting Lancôme’s brand-new Lash Idôle Mascara. Retailing at $26, the newly launched product features a volumizing curved wand coated in 360 tiny bristles designed to hold, open and raise every single lash; and the lightweight gel formula claims to hold up to 24 hours of flakes and smudges free.
A tall order, yes, but take a look at Collins’ makeup from the night and you’re going to be sold—her lashes look separate, dark, and naturally curled and elevated.
The perfected lashes complemented the “taupe-y tones” of the rest of the Lancôme look, as Stiles described in her IG article. The artist attributed the cool neutral eyeshadow to the $50 Hypnôse 5-Color Eyeshadow Palette in Beige Brûlée, while the cheeks were swept away by Lancôme’s Blush Subtil in Miel Glace, a peachy oil-free powder that sells at $32. The pink-nude lips were another piece of art: the $50 Absolute Precious Cells Nourishing Lip Balm and the bronzed rose Le Lip Liner in Bronzelle ($26.50) were used to produce a natural-looking lip that nevertheless looked very red carpet.
And of course, no one should forget about the brows. All the Stiles she revealed in her article was that she used Lancôme’s $25 Brow Define Pencil in Dark Brown on Collins—and luckily for fans, there are a couple of colors where that one comes from. This includes the actual auburn, plus two separate variants of black.
