“Precious” star Gabourey Sidibe has been lighting up one red carpet after another. This weekend it was the Screen Actors Guild Awards and before that she positively glowed at the Golden Globes… thanks to a combination of natural beauty and infectious enthusiasm mixed with a little help from Makeup Maven Bobbi Brown.
“I wanted Gabourey to look pretty powerful, but still like herself, so I gave her glowing skin and modern, sexy eyes,” Bobbi told us of the Golden Globes look she created for Gabby. “She doesn’t need a lot of makeup, so we added some sparkle shadow, lashes and color to her lips and cheeks and she was perfect. I love this look because she has a natural glow and looks like the prettiest version of herself.”
Bobbi breaks down how to achieve Gabby’s Glow in eight easy steps.
Step 1: Prep skin with Soothing Face Tonic and Hydrating Face Cream.
Step 2: Apply Chestnut Creamy Concealer under the eye. Use Concealer Brush to get an even application.
