At last night’s Thor: The Dark World premiere, all eyes were on the lovely Jaimie Alexander who stunned in a black column gown by Azzaro featuring a provocative sheer mesh panel from head to toe.

The strategically placed fabric left very little to the imagination, revealing plenty of sexy skin on the red carpet, as she accessorized with a metallic Edie Parker clutch and silver earrings.

As for her beauty look, we were mesmerized by her intensified smoky eyes and flawless matte skin.

We tapped her makeup artist Jeffrey Paul to get the rundown on how he created this look using Votre Vu products.

“We wanted the whole look to be defined, but warm and rich because the dress is so powerful. The emphasis was really on her and how beautiful she is, so we kept the skin really clean, the lips pale and emphasized her eyes,” he told us of his inspiration.

Here’s how to get the look:

Prep the Skin. The beauty expert first smoothed on Votre Vu’s Fleur Blanc Tonic over Alexander’s skin and hydrated it with Best Regards Crème Du Jour moisturizer. After letting it set in, he applied Love Me Deux Moisture Tint in Limoges lightly to even out her skin.

Emphasize the Eyes. Jeffrey prepped Jaimie’s lids with Lingerie Pour Les Yeux in Light and then applied the shade Raw Silk from the Palette Play eye shadow quad in Violette to the center of her lids. To give her eyes more depth and shape, he applied the Gilt shade from the Palette Play eye shadow quad in Copper.

Add Shine. Jeffrey applied Votre Vu’s French Kiss Moisture Riche Lipstick in Babette and then blotted it off so that there was a stain of color. Right before she made her red carpet debut, he mixed the Lip Lustre in Charming with a lip brush into the lipstick and applied it to Jaimie’s lips to create a look that was in between cream and velvet. 

Contour the Face. Lastly, Jeffrey took the Votre Vu Beauté en Bronze in Monaco and really worked the bronzer into her skin, concentrating under the cheekbones to enhance the definition of her face. Finally, he applied the blush from the duo to the apples of her cheeks.
