Angelina Jolie’s red lips made a bold statement at the Globes last week, but she’s not the only beauty whose makeup we coveted. Here are the step-by-step guides for three gorgeous looks.
WHO: Makeup Artist Molly Stern
INSPIRATION: “Kate’s Roberto Cavalli dress was so ethereal and magical; I wanted to keep the skin looking completely luminous and create a bit of edge with the eyes.”
Molly began by moisturizing Kate’s skin with Natura Bisse’s The Cure Cream. She then primed with Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, which creates a flawless canvas for makeup, followed by a light application of Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Sand. Molly loved the sheer finish of the foundation, which allowed the British beauty’s gorgeous skin to shine through.
Molly used the bronze tone in Hourglass Illume Creme-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset to add warmth to Kate’s skin, and followed with the blush tone applied on the apples of her cheeks. She then dusted NARS Miss Liberty high on her cheekbone to add an extra glow.
Molly used the bronze shade of Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy as a base, and set it with NARS Galapagos Eye Shadow, smudged deep into the lid. For an extra pop of light, she dabbed CHANEL’s Blazing Gold Ombré Essential over the inner lid. Her lashes are deep and jet-black due to Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara, followed by Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer which was painted over them for an extra kick of drama.
Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème lipstick in Fresco was used as a base on Kate’s lips, followed by Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in Imagine for a glistening sheen.
WHO: Marina Gravani for NYX Cosmetics and KeSARI Beauty
INSPIRATION: Marina complemented Stacy’s stunning red Valentino gown with a neutral, effortless look to reveal her natural beauty.
Stacy’s skin was prepped the night before with the KeSARI Pore Minimizing Indian Clay Masque ($29.50/kesaribeauty.com). The day of the show, prior to applying makeup, Marina applied KeSARI Dark Circle Brightening Cream ($37.90/kesaribeauty.com) to the under eye area to reduce puffiness and impart a subtle glow.
Next, Marina created a base using NYX Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Primer and HD Studio Photogenic Foundation in Sand Beige. She then used the NYX Cosmetics Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation in Soft Beige to attain a matte finish. The NYX Cosmetics Highlight & Contour Powder was then applied to define and highlight Stacy’s cheekbones. To set the Highlight & Contour Powder and maintain a matte finish, Marina used the NYX Cosmetics Powder Blush in Dusty Rose over the apples of her cheeks.
Marina applied the NYX Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Concealer Wand in Beige to the under eye area to even Stacy’s skin tone. She then dotted the NYX Cosmetics Collection Noir Liquid Black Liner between Stacy’s lashes to make them appear thicker. Marina applied a thin line of the NYX Cosmetics Liquid Black Liner to Stacy’s top lid and then mixed the Liquid Black Liner with the NYX Cosmetics Powder Brown Liner for the lower lash. Marina then used the shimmery light beige eye shadow from the NYX Cosmetics Butt “Naked” Eyes Palette on Stacy’s lids and the brown eye shadow from the palette in the crease. She finished the look with three coats of the NYX Cosmetics Le Chick Flick waterproof mascara from the Boudoir Mascara Collection.
Marina created a nude lip to keep Stacy’s look as effortless as possible. She used a neutral lip liner and followed with the NYX Cosmetics Xtreme Lip Cream in Natural—the perfect finish to Stacy’s gorgeous feminine look.
WHO: Makeup Artist Leslie Lopez
INSPIRATION: “I really wanted to channel a young Sophia Loren and make Freida’s eyes the focal point of her look.”
Leslie gave Freida a flawless face by starting with L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Foundation in W6 (Sun Beige).
She created a sun-kissed look on the cheeks with L’Oréal Paris Magic Smooth Soufflé Blush in Cherubic.
For Freida’s eyelids, she used L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Bronzed Taupe, and Iced Latte on the brow bone for an extra pop of shimmer. Leslie gave the look an extra layer of smokiness with L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner in black before curling her lashes and applying a few coats of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara in Black.
To keep Freida’s eyes the focus, she kept her lips on the natural side with L’Oréal Paris Infallible Le Rouge in Lingering Mocha, a soft mauve.
