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.”

MAC Cosmetics is teaming up with Lorde!

New York Magazine’s The Cut is reported that “Royals” singer Lorde will be launching a makeup collection with MAC. I have to say – ever since seeing Lorde and her dramatic makeup on the Grammys, I had a feeling then it was only a matter of time.

Lorde teamed up with MAC Senior Makeup Artist Amber Dreadon for her Grammys look. Here’s what Amber had to say: “I have loved M A C Cosmetics since I was a little kid. I remember saving up to buy my very first M A C lipstick [Snob] at 14, and it was used by about 20 of my friends! M A C has a very clear aesthetic, that has always felt fashion forward to me. So I was really excited to work with them on these products, which I use pretty much every day and night. I hope you will too.”

Are you excited to see the collection? I AM!


What did you think of Lorde’s black fingertips at last night’s Grammys?

Lorde made her Grammy debut last night – and what night it was!

She performed her breakout hit “Royals” at the Staples Center. Wearing a sleeveless white shirt, and black pants, the singer belted out her famous song. She sounded AMAZING. I think I liked the live version of the song better!

As I watched her sing (my son said she looked like she was going to be sick the whole time), all I could do was stare at her black fingertips. She dipped the tips of her fingers in black paint, which she removed before hitting the stage to accept her award.

Her gorgeous dark lips came via M∙A∙C products. If you want her exact lip color, use M∙A∙C Heroine Lipstick mixed with Cyber Lipstick and M∙A∙C Vino Lip Pencil.

Although we didn’t see her typical curly mane — we loved her loose, very slightly wavy locks! The center-part was also a nice touch to complete the look. Her hair was done by Jen Atkin.
