Isabela Merced Wore Layered Blush and Vintage Versace to the ‘Madame Web’ Premiere


It’s a rare treat to see a new superhero movie centered solely on superwomen. In a genre largely dominated by male characters, with names often ending in «man,» such as Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, and Iron Man, a fresh perspective is long overdue.

Enter Madame Web, a film that promises to shake up the superhero landscape. Starring Sydney Sweeney, Dakota Johnson, and Isabela Merced, the movie follows four distinct Spider Women who unite after Madame Web (played by Johnson) discovers her clairvoyant abilities. Among the ensemble, Araña, portrayed by Merced, stands out as a particularly thrilling character.

Obviously, in celebration of the milestone role for Merced and the film as a whole, the actor had to show up to the premiere looking as bad as the crime she tries to stop. And on February 12, she did just that, from her web-inspired gown to «sophisticated, understated» glam.

In addition to her vintage Atelier Versace gown—that was full of web-inspired detailing from the semi-circles making up the bodice to the see-through, fringey effect making up her skirt—her makeup nodded to the siren-like beauty of a black widow.

In an exclusive interview with Byrdie, Merced shares her thoughts on tonight’s look, expressing how it evokes a timeless feel. «We’re blending a futuristic hairstyle with classic makeup and a ’90s-era dress, creating an intriguing mix of timelines that resonates with the themes of Madame Web,» she reveals. Collaborating with stylists Chloe & Chenelle, Merced selected a 1999 gown previously worn by Naomi Campbell on the runway. «I wanted to experiment with time and era-hopping, envisioning the future as perceived in the early 2000s and late ’90s,» she explains.

Celebrity makeup artist Allan Avendaño provided insight into the beauty look that complemented Merced’s spider-inspired ensemble. He describes the inspiration as «classic, sophisticated, understated glamour,» opting for a «barely there» eye, radiant skin, and a neutral pinky nude lip to enhance her natural beauty for the occasion.

The duo listened to ’90s pop music—»any music will do, but the more chaotic the better,» says Merced—and the actor sipped on a Yerba Mate while they got glam going. «My favorite part of my getting ready process is when I’ve been zoned out for a while, just thinking about how stressful the night is going to be and then Allan’s like, ‘here look at this,’ and then I look at myself in the mirror and I realize Hey, at least I’ll look good while I’m stressed,» says Merced. Avendaño adds that their glam time is always full of laughter and genuine conversation.

Avendaño used a full face of Armani Beauty for the look. He says that the «glowing skin» started with a base of the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation ($69) mixed with a couple of pumps of the Armani Fluid Sheer Glow Enhancer ($42) in Shade 10—blending those together on her face before adding the Luminous Silk Concealer ($42) in Shade 4 and Fluid Sheer Glow Enhancer in Shade 2 on the high-points of her face for more glow.

However, the glow didn’t stop there. After creating a dimensional glow with a few shades of concealer—shades 4, 6, and 10, to be exact—Avendaño went in with blush to create «a glowing from within look,» adding that he loves to layer her blush. For this step, he reached for Luminous Silk Glow Blush ($39) in 60, applying it after her foundation and concealer settled. «I then use a blending sponge with a little foundation on it to blend out edges and diffuse the color,» he says. «I then dust a bit of powder to set everything. Then I dust another light layer of blush on top of the powder.»

The last steps before sending Merced off to the red carpet? «Applying the Armani beauty Lip Power Lipstick ($45) in shade 108 and then blotting it off before applying again» to really make the color last. Then, «A dusting of the Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Glow Setting Powder ($69) in her T-Zone» to control where her skin shines through the paparazzi flash. Also, of course, some «talks about life,» catching up on all the gossip in each other’s day-to-day.
