Red Carpet Report1 of 13
By Emili Vesilind
Before a big event, stars including Gwyneth Paltrow, Julianne Moore and Kate Bosworth turn to Clarins Celebrity Makeup Artist Pati Dubroff. We asked the Hollywood favorite to dish on her "love it" and "leave it" red carpet advice.
Foundation2 of 13
Love it: "I would rather spend more time applying foundation so that it looks like there’s none there," says Dubroff. Her tip: Prep skin with a primer to even out the texture and slightly mattify your T-zone. "Then use a foundation brush starting from the T-zone and working outwards. If the skin on the side of your face is even and smooth, don't cover it—let it breathe."

Leave it: “My pet peeve is when there’s so much foundation you don’t see the skin anymore." (Is it just us or has Christina's foundation also seeped into her hairline?)
Blush4 of 13
Love It: “A little pop of a bright color on the apple of the cheek looks great," according to Dubroff. Opt for a cream formula that's dewy—never sparkly.

Leave It: “Lots of contour cheek color isn't flattering," says Dubroff. "All you see is makeup!”
Eyes6 of 13
Love It: Try color—turquoise, mandarin or violet—without being too trendy. "Cream shadows are great for applying a sheer shade with sheen and shine. Remember to layer powder lightly on top to up the shadow's staying power."
Eyes7 of 13
Leave It: Dubroff says the traditional smoky eye trend doesn't translate well in photos. Heavy, overdone eyes can make even young women look older than they are.
Lashes8 of 13
Love It: Dubroff says a couple clean coats of black mascara are the way to go. If you want to amp it up, try a single strand of individual false lashes. "I always use short ones so nothing looks flare-y.”

Leave It: "A full strip of fake lashes is totally dated," says Dubroff. "When people put on heavy lashes, it looks as if they can hardly open their eyes.”
Brows10 of 13
Love It: “Brows should be well groomed, but natural," according to Dubroff, who will shade brows with a color that matches the lightest strand of hair on the head. "Even if someone has very dark black hair, I'll use a dark brown pencil to take it down a notch.”
Brows11 of 13
Leave It: Dubroff recommends avoiding brows that are overly sculpted and defined. "They can look painted-on and too perfect."
Lips12 of 13
Love It: “A nice sheer version of a bright color looks really fresh," says Dubroff. "If the lips are nude-y, they should be a rose nude, not a pale nude," she notes.

Leave It: Good-bye, goop. Lip gloss shouldn't be wet and sticky-looking, says Dubroff. "When I use it, I put a dot in the center and spread the color around the mouth so it's subtle.”
