Sarah Brock was Gal Gadot’s make-up artist on Wonder Woman after being personally requested by the film’s female director Patty Jenkins. With the film out this week, Sarah is delighted to share her exclusive Hollywood tips with HELLO!

Gal is blessed with naturally beautiful skin, so the products I use on her are purely to hydrate and create a perfect base for make-up. The cleanser we have always used is the Creme de la Mer the Cleansing Oil. If her skin is dehydrated from a plane journey, I use Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturiser but if it’s not too dry we both love CHANEL Hydra Beauty Serum and Crème.
I also always use the CHANEL Rouge Coco Baume on Gal's lips as it delivers moisture and imparts a pretty yet subtle sheen. For tired or puffy eyes, I always apply the Sisley Eye Contour Mask for 10 minutes… it's amazing and often sells out.

I never apply heavy makeup to Gal's skin, so by using a primer I can perfect her complexion before I apply it. My go-to primers is the Murad Invisiblur primer. It’s great if we’re working outside in hot weather or for summer holidays as it has built-in SPF 30.
I'm known for my skin work and so deciding on the right foundation is one of the most important choices for me. When it comes to red carpet make-up, you can’t beat the Oxygenetix Foundation range. It’s an incredible skin secret as it makes everything look perfect without being too heavy.
I then follow with concealer where needed. If Gal has been travelling a lot I start by applying the Bobbi Brown Correctors to counteract any under eye darkness. I then follow with the Bare Minerals Complete Coverage Serum Concealer - one of my favourite products of all time.
Next up is the cream contour and blush - I always use creams as they keep the skin looking dewy and youthful. The Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate is my favourite cream contour product and when it comes to blush, the Rosie for Autograph ones look beautiful on Gal.
To highlight Gal's cheekbones, I apply the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector. Gal and I are not big fans of face powder and so I sometimes apply just a tiny amount where needed - it's always the Daniel Sandler Invisible Pressed Blotting Powder.
Most of the eyeshadows I apply are neutral-toned ones. The Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow palette in shade Obscura Pallete is one I often turn to as it allows me to create a natural look with a subtle contour. I always use black eyeliner on Gal on her top lash line and of my favourite eyeliners (applied with a thin brush) is the Estee Lauder Double Wear Gel Eyeliner in shade Stay Onyx.
For gorgeous, glossy lashes I use two mascaras - the It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara followed by the Le Volume de CHANEL Waterproof Mascara to make the lashes look even bigger and make sure that it doesn't smudge at all. Lip-wise the colour I use on Gal depends on the look that we are creating. For the red carpet we like a red lip - I have too many to choose from, but a firm favourite is MAC Ruby Woo.
