We always knew Jessica Alba was a beauty, but one glance at her recent makeup look, and we're seriously smitten with her gorgeous features.

The star looked lovelier than ever this week while attending the H&M fashion show in Paris, wearing a feminine lace baby doll dress with sheer sleeves and a high neckline.

Her sultry makeup look felt polished and pretty—and perfectly appropriate for fall.

We spoke with her makeup artist Daniel Martin for Giorgio Armani Beauty to get the scoop on her alluring look. 

Here's what he shared with us:

"The inspiration was a modern gothic look. Because her swing dress had a sweet but renaissance feeling to it, we juxtaposed her beauty by going to the darker side. A deep bold berry lip and lots of lashes made her dress feel more contemporary and modern," he explained.

Martin smoothed on the cult-favorite Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation on her face, and evened her skin tone with the Maestro Eraser concealer.

He added radiance to her skin with a touch of the Fluid Sheer highlighter and then applied sheer blush to contour her cheeks.

To set her face, the beauty expert dusted on the Lasting Silk loose powder to her T-zone.

As for her eyes, he rimmed her pretty peepers with black liquid eyeliner and used a range of shadows from the Nars Narcissist palette before coating her lashes with Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill mascara.

Finally, for a bold statement, he finished off her face with the brand's Rouge Ecstasy #403 Downtown lipstick.

"Seeing that red lipstick has become the new norm, wearing a deep berry shade can add more mystique and strength to finish off a look," he told us. 

Love it!
