Get The Look: Lorde at the 2015 Golden Globes in Kat Von D Beauty

WHO: Lorde, Golden Globe Nominee for Best Original Song (“Yellow Flicker Beat,” The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I)

MAKEUP BY: Amber D for Kat Von D Beauty

INSPIRATION: “We really wanted to play with a look that was strong and powerful but that felt classic. The Golden Globes is such a glamorous event so it was key to look chic but to also stick to Lorde’s sharp edgy style. I visited the Museum of Contemporary Art in LA last week and was awestruck and inspired by a breathtaking painting from Mark Rothko that had washes of orange and red juxtaposed next to dirty greys, which made me feel like it might be time to revisit a more orange based lip this awards season.” – Amber D for Kat Von D Beauty

TIPS/TECHNIQUE: “Lorde is fearless and never afraid to try new looks so we wanted to try a look that was classic but that also felt new. To start, we created a luminous base using the Kat Von D Lock-It Featherweight Primer ($32) and blended it with a moisturizer for maximum hydration and luminosity. A tiny amount of Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation ($34) was buffed over the face using Sephora Collection Pro Flawless Airbrush #56 ($32) and was delicately perfected using Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Concealer ($25) with Sephora Collection Pro Airbrush Concealer Brush #57 ($24) to ensure a flawless complexion. To finish off the face, we added a sheer flush and slight contour and highlight, as we wanted to keep the main focus on the eyes and lips. For the eyes, we set brows with a clear gel and applied washes of neutral color of the Kat Von D Monarch Eyeshadow Palette ($46) by swiping shimmer shadows across the lid and then sculpting the corners with matte shades. We added a striking accent to the eye with an unexpected bronze liner using Kat Von D Lightning Liner in Hyde ($20) to make the eyes sparkle and then finished off with a few false lashes and gentle coats of Kat Von D Immortal Lash 24 Hour Mascara ($20). And for the lips, we made them pop with a mix of lip balm and Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Countess ($21), a gorgeous matte hot orange red.”
