DIY Gal Gadot Makeup from the NYC Premiere of Batman V Superman

Written by Bryce

The whole DIY Gal Gadot makeup breakdown from the NTC premiere of Batman V Superman thanks to celeb makeup artist Matin Maulawizada.

Matin created this soon to be iconic Gal Gadot makeup look describing his inspiration, “I wanted to make her look like a golden goddess.” He focused on her “luminous skin” and a smokey eye look. The overall look was “luminous skin and gradations of bronze and gold.”

To begin, Matin lightly misted Baszicare Roseus Floral Hydrating Toner all over her face for “proper moisture and hydration.” Next, he used Baszicare Alitus Biotic Plumping on her face, neck and décolleté, “which helps increase hydration and creates a dewy radiance.” For hydration around the eye, Matin applied Baszicare Lucem Smoothing Cream Intensive, “I wanted a perfectly satin finish. Not too shiny or too matte.”

“Once skin was prepped, Matin used Laura Mercier Primer to make sure the makeup would stay flawless all night. He applied NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Malaga because “Gal has superbly even skin and does not need a lot of coverage.” He used one shade darker to “push her skin towards tan,” and where she needed extra coverage, he applied Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage SC-5.

“On her cheeks, I wanted lots of bronze but also a flash of color,” he explained, using his “go-to” Dior Glow Powder Blush on the apple of the cheeks, and contouring the outer part of the face right under the cheekbone with a touch of NARS Contour Blush in Olympia.” Ideal for standing up to supervillains, we say.

For the eyes, Matin layered different bronze and gold colors in cream then powder, going from light to darker from the inner to outer eye. He began by applying NARS Duo Cream in Summer Time and Scorpios on the lid, and then Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Color in Cocoa topped with NARS Duo Eye Shadow in Corudra. “I also used Guerlain Terracotta Khol to add even more mystery to her gorgeous eyes.” Matin finished the eyes with a swipe of DiorShow Mascara, and the applied Lucky Cat Beauty Miami Lashes. For her brows, he swept on Votre Vu Arch de Triumphe in Warm.”

Matin wanted to keep the lips “satiny and pale. I chose NARS Satin Lipstick in Sexual Healing to have luster on the lips without going too shiny or glossy.” This is certainly a beauty routine that’s easy enough for the average makeup enthusiast to mirror.

He evened and tanned her legs with Votre Vu Silk Stockings.
