NARS International Lead Makeup Stylist Uzo created the red carpet makeup look for Ava DuVernay at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards. Beauty Inspiration: “The look was about a woman in a position of power. Ava’s statement-making makeup was kept soft and ethereal to balance her bold hairstyle and architectural Zac Posen gown. I created a velvety, smoky chocolate eye and soft neutral shades for her cheeks and lips.”

Key NARS products used:
  • All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation (New for Spring 2015; for now try Sheer Matte Foundation)
  • Fez Shimmer Eyeshadow
  • Raquel Audacious Lipstick


NARS worked with celebrity makeup artist Matin to create the red carpet makeup look for Claire Danes at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards. Beauty Inspiration: “When I saw Claire’s hand-beaded Valentino gown, I was immediately struck with inspiration. We agreed that her eyes should be the focus so I matched her eyeshadow to the gorgeous peacock blue of her dress to create a brighter, edgier smoky look.”

Key NARS products used:
  • All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation (New for Spring 2015; for now try Sheer Matte Foundation)

Beauty Inspiration: “Laura is wearing a vintage James Galanos gown; it’s a one-shoulder, black, floor length dress with a sequin starfish at her hip. Because the look was so vintage, we went with a smoky charcoal gray to play up her almond, doe-shape eyes and added a light blush and nude lip.”

Key NARS products used:
  • All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation (New for Spring 2015; for now try Sheer Matte Foundation)
  • Lysithea Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow

NARS worked with celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbow to create the red carpet makeup look for Taylor Schilling at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards.
