73rd Annual Golden Globes Beauty Edition


Award season is officially underway with last night’s 73rd Annual Golden Globes and The Makeup Examiner has all of the looks from your favorite stars. From Katy Perry to Amy Adams, Sophia Bush to Taraji P. Henson and Jennifer Lopez to Amy Adams. And, we have the looks straight from the most famous celebrity stylists on the globe!


Katy Perry Golden Globes Red Carpet Beauty Look By Makeup Artist, Todd Delano

Get The Look!
  • For Katy’s Golden Globe look I began by prepping her skin with COVERGIRL TruBlend Primer for Combination Skin. Next, I applied Outlast Stay Luminous Foundation in Buff Beige to give her a luminous look that would last throughout the award show. I warmed up her skin with TruBlend Bronzer in Medium and added a pop of rosy color to her cheeks with TruBlend Blush in Medium Rose.
  • The eyes were the main focus for Katy’s look so I began by blending the new TruNaked Eye Shadow Palette in Nudes using the matte colors over the eyelid. These palettes are incredibly smooth, really blendable and deliver awesome color! I then did a thick cat eye using TruNaked Waterproof Eyeliner Duo in Mocha Ebony. No eye look is complete without big, voluminous lashes, so I used two coats of COVERGIRL Plumpify Mascara by blastPRO. This mascara has become a staple in my kit, because it lifts the lashes from the root so they appear darker, fuller and more noticeable – definitely a new favorite!
  • To complete Katy’s look, I wanted her lips to go seamlessly with her soft pink gown, so I applied Colorlicious OhSugar! in Sprinkle, which gave her the perfect wash of pink that nicely brought everything together.

Rooney Mara at the 2016 Golden Globes by Red Carpet Image Maker, Adir Abergel

The Look: A de-constructed braided updo with an amazing artistic flair that wowed on the red carpet.

Inspiration: Adir wanted both hard and soft to play a role in this look. The romance of the dress and the great lines inspired him.

The Breakdown:
  • Adir first started by applying a light oil on dry hair and then started to flat iron the hair completely straight.
  • Then he created a parting from ear to ear along the crown. He pulled the first section up, first applying a light hold gel into hair and then pulled it into a high ponytail securing it with elastic.
  • Next he took the rest of the hair and pulled it into a very low ponytail, again applying a light hold gel to create a shiny texture from roots to the beginning of the ponytail.
  • Focusing on the ponytails, he applied some beach, drying it and roughing up the texture.  Once he established the duality in textures; the shiny roots and the rough ends, he was ready to braid the ponytails.
  • He took the top section and braided it tightly.  As he reached the ends he merged the top section with the bottom and continued the braid into the second section.  He braided the second section all the way down and secured it with cotton string.
  • He then applied some texture spray to the braid and opened up the braid for a more deconstructed finish.
  • The look was finished with hairspray, making sure the front of the hair had no flyways.

Julianne Moore Golden Globes Red Carpet Makeup Look By Elaine Offers for L’Oréal 

Inspiration: “Julianne is wearing an amazing blue sequin Tom Ford dress – just liquidy and glamourous.  She didn’t want anything too dark, smoky or matchy-matchy to compete with the dress, so we went with a more natural, fresh eye and lip.”

  • Elaine started by prepping skin with Revitalift Volume Filler Serum, and then added bit of Revitalift Daily Volumizing Moisturizer; both set in while Julianne got her hair done
  • To control shine, Elaine tapped Revitalift Miracle Blur just in the T-zone and chin areas
  • Next, she blended True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup in Porcelain/Light Ivory all over the face; it’s a personal favorite of hers for its easy buildability.  To further conceal and brighten, she turned to Visible Lift Serum Absolute Concealer in Fair, and added warmth, shape and dimension to the jaw and cheekbone with Infalillible Pro-Contour Palette
  • On the apples of Julianne’s cheeks, Elaine combined Visible Lift Blur Blush in Soft Berry and Soft Pink, and accented the inner eye and bridge of nose with True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Golden
  • Elaine shaded eyelids with dusty, rose tones from the Colour Riche La Palette in Nude, and for added twinkle, Infallible 24H Eye Shadow in Endless Pearl was applied in inner corners
  • To create depth, she lined tight to lashes with Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in Charcoal and smudged with a brush.  Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in Brown was used in waterlines to sharpen up natural eye shape
  • Elaine curled lashes, applied a few coats of primer and topped off with Voluminous Superstar Mascara
  • Lips were finished off with a hydrated kiss of nude-pink color using Colour Riche Lipcolor in Gilded Pink

Julianne Moore Nails by L’Oréal Paris Global Manicurist, Tom Bachik

Inspiration: “Julianne wore a dark blue, beautiful Tom Ford gown on the carpet tonight. We wanted to contrast the gorgeous hue and keep her nails simple with a full coverage nude shade.”
  • First, Tom filed nails into a classic round shape
  • He next applied L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Color in Walk on the Beach to Julianne’s nails. Once dry, he applied L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Color in Top of the Line for the top coat
  • Tom advises maintaining a manicure using L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Facial Oil; a drop on each nail 1-2 daily will keep nail color looking fresh and shiny, and cuticles hydrated


Jennifer Lopez Golden Globes Red Carpet Beauty Look By Lorenzo Martin for L’Oreal 

Inspiration: “This evening, Jennifer went for a classic Hollywood look with her hair slightly flipped and parted to the side.”

  • Lorenzo, first washed Jennifer’s hair with L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner For texture and volume, Lorenzo sprayed L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Air-Blown Texture Mist to add body to the blow out
  • Using a small round brush, he then blow dried hair in small sections
  • Next, Lorenzo sprayed the hair with L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Blow Out Heat Spray
  • Using a 1” barrel curling iron, he curled the hair in one direction, pinned it and let cool
  • He then added a bit of shine using L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Lustrous Oil Serum on the front and ends of hair
  • Lorenzo finished the look by brushing out the hair and setting with L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray

Jennifer Lopez Nails by L’Oréal Paris Global Manicurist, Tom Bachik

Inspiration: “Jennifer wore this really cool yellow dress that was classic d super chic. We were really inspired by this color and because Jennifer’s look was so glamorous, we wanted to keep her nails clean and chic.  We chose a deep burgundy red solid nail to compliment the yellow tone of the dress.”

  • First, Tom filed nails into a classic round shape
  • He next applied L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Nailcolor in Always a Lady to Jennifer’s nails. After dry, Tom applied the top coat side of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Nailcolor and let dry
  • Tom advises maintaining a manicure using L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Facial Oil; a drop on each nail 1-2 daily will keep nail color looking fresh and shiny, and cuticles hydrated

Jennifer Lopez Makeup by Mary Phillips for L’Oréal Paris

Inspiration: “If you saw the Giambattista Valli dress, you’ll instantly get old Hollywood glamour with the shape and even the mustardy, marigold color. The cape and the diamonds, it is perfection. Her skin and that lip color are the hallmarks of this look. It’s very elegant, gorgeous, and beautiful, while still being very modern and today. We’re always experimenting with her looks, and I think that tonight perfectly reflects that, with this classic, old school dose of beauty.”

  • Mary first applied Armani Prima Eye and Lip Contour Perfector on the upper eye lid and around all around the mouth and lip, as lips should be just as hydrated as skin
  • Next, she created a natural 3D effect by layering sheerer colors of L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation (C5.5 NATURAL TAN, 5.5 Perfect Beige, and W3 Nude Beige)
  • She used darker shades in the Infallible Pro Contour Palette in 814 Medium along the jawline, underneath the cheekbones, on the temple and hairline of the forehead and along the nose. The highlighter hue was applied to the center of the forehead, nose, directly above the jawline, and underneath the brow bone.
  • Mary’s self-proclaimed “holy grail” blush, L'Oreal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Blush in Spiced Plum C7-8, was added to the apples of cheeks for a fresh pop of color and extra dimension
  • On eyelids, with special attention to brow bones, is L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eyeshadow Mono in 306.  Shade 201 is the backdrop color applied in the crease and 205 is added at the center of the upper lid and along the lower lash line
  • She drew a very, very thin line of L’Oréal Paris Infallible Black Velvet Liner on the top lashes only, and concentrated on making the line a little fuller at the ends without “winging out” too much, as that can tend to look costume-y with the rest of the look.  Mary finished the liner look by applying L’Oréal Paris Infallible Matte-Matic Liner to the upper and lower lashlines, making sure to get in between lashes to add drama in an understated, “un-heavy” sort of way
  • In order to achieve long, lush eyelashes that had the perfect hint of depth that wouldn’t compete in any way with the lip, Mary primed and coated lashes using L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Superstar Mascara
  • Mary mixed three lip shades, building up colors in different areas, applying darker colors to the outside of the mouth, and then working her way in. She wanted the lips to be dark but not vampy, and also have dimension and not come across as a one-note color. She customized the lip just for Jennifer using L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss in ROUGE ENVY, NUDE ALLUDE and FORBIDEEN KISS for a very full lip effect, that was neither too wet nor matte

Taraji P. Henson Golden Globes Red Carpet Beauty Look By Ashunta Sheriff

Inspiration: “To accentuate Taraji’s white Stella McCartney dress, we decided collectively (as we often do), to go for a clean and fresh look and  have it paired with sultry eyes and lips. This look is not only chic, but sexy and effortless; perfect for anyone who wants to play as a goddess for the night.”

  • First, Ashunta started with a clean and moisturized canvas and applied the Revitalift Miracle Blur as a primer for a smooth makeup application
  • Next, she applied True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation in C5.5 all over her face and neck
  • To follow, she gently applied True Match Concealer in Medium/Deep Neutral under brow bones, eyes and down the bridge of the nose to create a natural highlight effect
  • To avoid an oily T-zone, Ashunta gently patted on True Match Powder in C6
  • As a first step for the eyes, she applied Colour Riche Eyeshadow in Sunset Seine all over the lid and followed with Colour Riche Eyeshadow in Café Au Lait on the creases only
  • For a dramatic lash, she applied three coats of Voluminous Superstar Red Carpet Mascara on both the bottom and top lashes. “It's a two-step mascara that creates sexy full, thick lashes in the blackest of black shades.”
  • She lined both the upper and lower lash lines (staying out of the watermark) using Infallible Black Velvet Liner. “This really outlines Taraji’s beautiful almond-shaped eyes and makes them stand out.”
  • Once the eyes were all set, Ashunta moved on to cheeks, gently applying Visible Lift Blur Blush in Soft Pink using her fingers onto the  apples of cheeks for a dewy and fresh result
  • She outlined Taraji’s lips using Colour Riche Lip Liner and finished filling in with Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss in Bare Attraction
  • Her last and final “red carpet ready” step was to spritz Infallible Makeup Setting Spray for a long lasting finish


Brie Larson Golden Globes Red Carpet Beauty Look By L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Hairstylist, Mara Roszak

Inspiration: “I really wanted Brie’s hair to have an elegant, feminine feel, but still look fresh and young – because she is. We knew we wanted to style her hair down to accentuate the shape of the dress. We chose to go with a sleeker top, with a little bit of a wave at the bottom. The goal was to achieve a gorgeous, healthy hair look with high shine.”

  • After washing with Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Nourish Shampoo and Conditioner, Mara prepped the hair with Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Nourish Lustrous Oil Serum all over and then parted Brie’s hair to the side
  • Next, she blow dried the hair with a round brush to create a smooth look
  • After hair was dry, Mara pin curled the bottom and let them set for a few minutes before gently brushing them out
  • With a 1 ½ inch curling iron, she curled the hair up to the bottom of the ear lobes
  • Next, Mara again brushed out the curls and applied Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray and a tiny bit of Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Transforming Oil-in-Cream for added shine
  • The look was finished with Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold 

Olivia Wilde Golden Globes Red Carpet Beauty Look By L’Oréal Paris 
Celebrity Hairstylist, Mara Roszak

Inspiration: “Olivia’s look was all about modern and sexy, but with a little bit of a twist. To best complement her dress, we wanted to keep hair behind the shoulders, so thought a super cool, effortless low ponytail was the way to go.”

  • Mara washed Olivia’s hair using Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Nourish Shampoo and Conditioner
  • Next, hair was prepped with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out HeatSpray and rough dried
  • Once hair was dry, Mara used a 1 ¼ curling iron to wave Olivia’s hair
  • Next, she applied Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and used fingers to break up the waves
  • Mara then gathered hair into a low ponytail, pulling hair apart a bit and wrapping a piece of hair around the ponytail; she pulled a few pieces out to frame the face
  • To lock in the look, Mara sprayed all over with Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold

Lea Michele Golden Globes Red Carpet Beauty Look By Celebrity Stylist John D.

Lea wore a glamorous white Michael Kors gown, which inspired John D. to create a classic braided look. “We wanted to complement the sleek hourglass silhouette of the dress and decided that a chic, center-part braid paired perfectly with the overall look.”

  • Prep towel dried hair by raking a dollop of TRESemmé Climate Control Mousse from roots to ends to provide grip and texture for creating the braid.
  • Blow dry hair in sections, using a large round brush to add body throughout.
  • Once dry, create a center part and brush all hair toward the nape of the neck and secure into a low ponytail.
  • Divide ponytail into three even sections and braid into a traditional three-plait braid, securing the end with a small elastic.
  • Apply a small amount of TRESemmé Climate Control Mousse to fingertips and smooth any flyaways by directing hair down from the part and behind the ears.
  • Spray TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Frizz-Free Hold Hairspray all over to set the style while providing extra hold and shine.
Sophia Bush Golden Globes Red Carpet Beauty Look By 
NARS Celebrity Makeup Artist Fabiola

 Amy Adams Golden Globes Red Carpet Beauty Look By 
Celebrity Makeup Artist Stephen Sollitto

Inspiration: “My inspiration is always a combination of the woman I am working with, her dress and the event. Amy Adams wore a breathtaking Versace dress in geranium. Because today's gown was such a beautiful hue, I decided not to compete with it, keeping the palette fresh with tans and bronze.”

Malin Akerman Golden Globes Red Carpet Beauty Look By 
Celebrity Makeup Artist Kathy Jeung

  • Lona’s tips to re-create Leslie’s effortless look:
  • Prep towel-dried hair with Nexxus New York Salon Care Mousse Plus to add natural volume, tame flyways and weightlessly support the wavy style.
  • Blow-dry the hair in large sections to create a smooth base.
  • Once the hair is thoroughly dry, use a styling wand to create vertical waves in 1-inch sections throughout the head.
  • Run fingers through hair to separate the curls and finish with a light spray of the Nexxus New York Salon Care Frizz Defy Finishing Mist to provide long-lasting hold and maintain the polished, frizz-free look.

FKA Twigs - Makeup by Uzo, NARS International Lead Makeup Stylist

 Lady Gaga - Makeup by Sarah Tanno for NARS Cosmetics

Alexa Chung - Makeup by Tamah K. for NARS Cosmetics

Key NARS products used:  All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, Brigitte Audacious Lipstick

 Claire Danes - Makeup by Matin for NARS Cosmetics

Beauty Inspiration: "I was looking at Chinese illustrations from the 20s and loved the look of a maroon wash on the eyes and cheeks and stained dark cherry or oxblood red on the lips. I wanted to use a version of that which was suitable on the red carpet."

Fei Fei Sun - Makeup by Maki Ryoke for NARS Cosmetics
  
Beauty Inspiration: "The inspiration for the look was Babe Paley traveling to China in the 30s. The eyeliner really had to be created for Fei Fei’s face; it was quite thick to enhance her eyes. The Babe Paley inspiration came through in the lipstick - it complemented Fei Fei’s Asian skin tone and really popped."

Key NARS products used: Carmen Audacious Lipstick, Carpates Eyeliner Stylo


 Dakota Johnson - Makeup by Patti Dubroff for NARS Cosmetics

 Reese Witherspoon - Makeup by Molly Stern for NARS Cosmetics

Key NARS products used: All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, Vera Audacious Lipstick

All NARS products, except where noted, are available online at NARS and NARS boutiques.


Beyoncé - Makeup Artist: L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Makeup Artist, Sir John 

Beauty Inspiration: “I was inspired when I saw Beyoncé with all of her hair off her face. It automatically gave her an awakened, child-like look that I wanted to enhance with a bit of an anime vibe. I also wanted to play up her makeup since her Givenchy gown was long, sheer and covered in jewels,” shared Sir John.

Step 1: Prep face with L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation focusing on keeping the T-zone matte. Sir John worked to play up her luminous skin tone and over-exaggerate a fresh, youthful appearance
Step 2: To create contrast, he mixed L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Golden and Rose (Available July 2015) and applied to the cheeks. To further sculpt the cheek and add dimension, he applied L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Powder, which also helps absorb light
Step 3: Sir John made Beyoncé’s tan skin really pop by directly contrast with a pastel mint lid. He created a mod eye by applying a mix of L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Endless Sea and Infinite Sky
Step 4: For a “deer in the headlights” look, Sir John applied L’Oréal Paris The Super Slim Liner by Infallible to the top lid and into the lash line. He purposely kept the bottom lash line clean with no liner and mascara to further enhance the wide eye finish
Step 5: To complete the look, he added tons of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara so eyes popped, and added a touch of L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Lip Color in Neverending Nutmeg to simply and subtly enhances the shape of lips


Karlie Kloss - Makeup Artist: L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Makeup Artist, Sir John 

Beauty Inspiration: Sir John was inspired by the elongated silhouette of Karlie’s Versace dress, which lead to the decision of creating an enhanced summery, beachy look with a fresh, modern, evening twist.

Step 1: Sir John prepped skin with the super-rich L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Volume Filler Re-Volumizing Daily Moisturizer to create a flawless, moisturized base 
Step 2: Then he used L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Ice (Available July 2015) for a glowing, luminous complexion
Step 3: Next, he blended L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Golden (Available July 2015) to sculpt and define Karlie’s cheekbones
Step 4: Following the silhouette of Karlie’s dress, Sir John opted for a fresh eye look and elongated the eye applying L’Oréal Paris Silkissime Eyeliner by Infallible in Green Ivy to the top of the eyelid. By starting the liner at the middle of the eye and drawing under the lash line, the eye appears more open
Step 5: To create maximum impact, Sir John added L’Oréal Paris Infallible Smokissime Powder Eyeliner Pen in Black to the lash line, followed by the several layers of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara for extra intensity
Step 6: To complete the look and create a super nude lip, Sir John applied L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Lip Color in Everlasting Caramel

Karlie Kloss (Hair) - Makeup Artist: L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Hairstylist, Mara Roszak  

Beauty Inspiration: “Karlie wore a gorgeous Versace gown, which automatically feels a little sexy. I really wanted her hair to be moveable and soft, so we went for a tousled, glamorous look,” shared Mara.

Step 1: To start, Mara applied L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out HeatSpray to damp hair
Step 2: Next, she blew out hair starting at the front and using a round brush around the face and sides, rough drying the back
Step 3: Then, Mara wrapped random sections of hair around a 1 ¼ curling iron, keeping the ends out for smooth and soft waves
Step 4:  She sprayed the hair with L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold to lock the look in place and then brushed out the hair a bit to soften the wave
Step 5: Next, she applied a few spritzes of L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare High Lift Creation Spray for more body and hold
Step 6: Last, Mara sprayed more L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold all over hair to complete the look


Carey Mulligan (Hair) - L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Hairstylist, Mara Roszak  

Beauty Inspiration: “Carey wore this gorgeous Balenciaga gown with a stunning collar so, because of the high neck, we wanted to put the hair up. I love this look – it’s ethereal with a slightly modern edge that still feels effortless,” shared Mara

Step 1: Mara started by spraying the entire head with L’Oreal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse, then rough dried hair with a blow dryer
Step 2: Next, she pin curled the sections around Carey’s face to give extra height to the look
Step 3: Mara split the back of the hair into three sections, fastening each section into a pony tail and then wrapping into individual buns, locking in with L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold
Step 4: Next, she let out the front pieces and touched them up with a curling iron before pinning them to the back of the hair
Step 5: With a tiny bit of L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold on her fingertips, Mara loosened the front pieces for added softness around the face


Lily Collins (Hair) - L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Hairstylist, Mara Roszak  

Beauty Inspiration: “Lily wore classic Chanel. We’ve already done so much with her short haircut, so for this look we really wanted a more timeless, simple look.”

Step 1: Mara trimmed a few pieces of Lily’s hair up front to give a shorter bang look
Step 2: Next, she used a ½ wide curling iron to curl random pieces of hair
Step 3: Then, Mara applied a minimal amount of L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel as a shield to keep hair in place
Step 4: She sprayed L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold onto her hands and pieced out bangs using her fingertips
Step 5: To finish the look, Mara turned to L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray, which smoothed hair and locked in the style


Julianne Moore - Makeup Artist: Elaine Offers for L’Oréal Paris

Beauty Inspiration: “Julianne wore a gorgeous black Riccardo Tisci gown with jet beading and corseted accents.  She debuted a shorter hairstyle and we used her signature makeup color palette of taupes and plums, amping it up a bit for the occasion,” shared Elaine.

Step 1: Elaine prepped skin with L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Volume Filler Daily Volumizing Moisturizer
Step 2: She then blended L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation with Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer for a combination of coverage and luminosity
Step 3: To brighten up the face, Elaine dotted her go-to L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift CC Cream under the eyes, down the center of the nose and across the top lip

Jennifer Lopez - Makeup Artist: Mary Phillips for L’Oréal Paris

Beauty Inspiration: “All I have to say is RED DRAGON! The hair is slicked back and very fashion forward in its ‘finish’ and texture, but very tasteful. The makeup really ties in the red dragon theme, but in a very subtle way. She has that classic JLO skin, we kept the glow, the tone- and all of those elements that people love, but I would definitely call this glow a ‘special occasion’ glow. You're going to see a lot of reds, oranges, peaches, but in a very diffused blown out way. We play a lot with merging her eye color with her cheek color, which is Eastern Asian-inspired, and pays a bit of a homage to the disco 70's era. Her lips are a golden coral and her eyes have a very thin black liquid liner line on the upper lash only. You might notice an overall golden finish to her skin, which is because I dusted that everywhere as a finishing touch to play up the crystals in her breathtaking red Versace gown. She almost looks ethereal. She floated in with this dress,” shared Mary.

Step 1: To start, Mary applied L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur, which is great for filling in the depths of fine lines and allowed foundation to glide on with ease
Step 2: Mary used L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray before, during and after makeup. She explained that it gives skin the perfect finish making it her skin-must
Step 3: Next, she applied L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Foundation in Classic Tan all over the face
Step 4: To brighten and plump in all the right ways, Mary added two-in-one L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Serum Absolute Concealer
Step 5: To create the signature bronzed glow and for a bit of sheen, Mary applied Armani Sun Fabric Sheer Bronzer
Step 6:  Mixing Lancôme Limited Edition Blush Subtil Crème in Coral Alize, Brise Rosee, and Rouge Mistral and L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Classic Wine created a super slick balmy blush, which Mary patted all along the temples, tops of the cheek bone and into the eye lids. She also dabbed the mixture at the very center of her mouth and blended outwards, which she described as almost a faint "popsicle mouth” look
Step 7: For the eyes, Mary applied L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Intenza Mascara in Black, which fanned lashes out and added thickness primarily to their tail ends
Step 8: For bold color and precise, long-lasting application in one stroke, Mary applied L’Oréal Paris The Super Slim Liner by Infallible
Step 9: Mary then applied L'Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Brow Plumper in Transparent, which she credits as having the perfect hold
Step 10: To complete the look, she added a shiny punch of a subtle color using L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Le Gloss in Peach Fuzz -- the luster and sparkle tied the look together to completion

All products are available at online at L’Oréal Paris and mass and drugstores nationwide.
