Where has Scarlett Johansson been hiding all these months? We've been dying for a good dose of va-va-voom!! Leave it to ScarJo to bring the sexy back at her new movie premiere Under the Skin at the Venice Film Festival yesterday.

Those retro winged eyes! That glowing skin!  Those sculpted brows! Those pillowy lips! Come on… she looks like she just stepped off the set of a Fellini film.   This look screams "movie star."

Get the Look: Since Scarlett is the face of Dolce & Gabbana Makeup, we're assuming her makeup artist used all D&G products to achieve this glam look.  After moisturizing and priming, apply a buildable creamy foundation like DOLCE & GABBANA The Foundation Perfect Finish Creamy Foundation which will even out skin but still leave a radiant glow.

To hide darkness under the eyes, redness, and other imperfections, apply a light-reflecting concealer like DOLCE & GABBANA The Concealer Perfect Finish Concealer in small dots and blend with fingertips. Tip: To add extra radiance, use this concealer as a highlighter along the top of the cheekbones, brow bones, and at the cupid's bow.

To create ScarJo's retro winged eye, use a true black liquid liner like DOLCE & GABBANA Glam Liner Intense Liquid Eyeliner in Black Intense 1. Use the liner applicator to draw a thin line from the inner corner of your eye. Once you get to the center of your eye gradually make the line thicker.

To find the correct angle for your winged swoop, line up a pencil from the outer corner of your eye to the outer corner of your eyebrow. Then, from the outer corner of the eye, draw a line following that angle (for Scarlett's look, make this line about ¼ of an inch).

Next, connect the tip of the line with the top corner of the liner along your lash line to create a triangle shape. Fill in the shape with the liquid liner.  Hint: If your winged eye ends up looking more like an ink blob, use a pointy Q-tip soaked in makeup remover to clean up the area and create the desired shape. 

Once your eyeliner has completely dried, apply 2-3 coats of a volumizing mascara like DOLCE & GABBANA The Mascara Volumized Lashes in Black 1.  Hint: If you find some rogue clumps in your lashes, use a disposable mascara wand to brush through lashes to kill clumps without removing mascara.

In order to properly recreate this look, you're going to need to define those brows! (Hopefully you have not fallen victim to the curse of the over-tweezing) Using either an eyebrow pencil or an eyebrow brush dipped in brow powder, make tiny upwards strokes in the same direction of your hair growth, filling in your eyebrows.  Then use a spindle or disposable mascara wand to brush brows upwards to blend the makeup.

To get Scarlett's rosy cheeks, use a gel or powder blush in a cool bright pink like DOLCE & GABBANA The Blush Luminous Cheek Colour in Provocative 40. Using a large powder brush or blush brush, apply the blush in the apples of the cheeks using a circular motion and pull upward towards the temples for an extra lift.

Complete this look by applying a shimmery petal pink lipstick like DOLCE & GABBANA Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick in Sensation 20.

We think ScarJo needs to give a red carpet lesson to all the young starlets out there. Think about how perfect our world would be if every starlet showed up to the red carpet looking like a retro movie star. Wait… then we would be out of a job. Nevermind!
