How to get Amber Heard’s gorgeous Golden Globes makeup!

Amber Heard at the Golden Globes - low res

Amber Heard turned heads at Sunday’s 71st annual Golden Globe Awards. The breathtaking actress, a presenter at the awards ceremony, teamed her midnight blue Atelier Versace dress with a romantic up-do and alluring makeup by Hourglass. “Amber brought some of her own ideas to the mix,” says makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen. “She liked the idea of focusing on sultry chocolate eyes, creamy skin and soft nude lips. I was just bringing out the remarkable geometry and beauty of her face.”

Here’s how to recreate the look:

COMPLEXION: Moisturize skin with Cle de Peau Gentle Nourishing Emulsion. Prime with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, conceal with Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer in Warm, and follow with Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup in Light Beige. “No. 28 hydrates beautifully but it also creates a magical finish,” he says.

BROWS: Define the brows with Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette.

EYES: Apply the shell shade from the Hourglass Vol. 6 Eye Palette as a base color all over the lids. Follow with the bronze shimmer shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy applied to the crease and under the eyes. Deepen the bronze with the brown shade from Vol. 6 Eye Palette applied to the outer corner, top and bottom of the lids. Line the eyes with a deep plum pencil like MAC Eye Kohl Prunella. “I also smudged the line with the black shadow from the palette,” he says. Apply a high-shine pearl shadow to the inner corner of the eye. Apply a coat of Hourglass Film Noir Mascara, allow to dry and curl lashes. Amplify with individual lashes like Ardell Duralash Flare in Medium Black.

CHEEKS: Apply the sheer rose shade from Hourglass Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset to the cheeks, and highlight with the sheer champagne shade from Hourglass Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Bronze Light. Retrace your steps with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Ethereal Light, an opalescent sheer powder which mimics a moonlit glow.

LIPS: Line lips with Hourglass Trace Lip Liner in Bare and follow with Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in Whisper, a golden pinky beige shimmer. “The look is glamorous but restrained,” adds VanLeeuwen. “She is so extraordinarily beautiful.”

Amber’s makeup is gorg – but that hair has got to go!

HOW TO: Greta Gerwig beautiful #GoldenGlobes look by Marc Jacobs Beauty!

rs_560x415-140113102157-1024.Greta-Gerwig-globes.ls.11314

Greta Gerwig was nominated last night for Best Actress for her role in ‘Frances Ha.’ I watched this movie on Friday night, and I absolutely LOVED IT! I didn’t expect to like it as much as I did, but I really loved it!

The actress looked gorgeous at the Golden Globes last night. Marc Jacobs Beauty was on hand to help create her flawless look!

INSPIRATION: “Greta had a true vision of what she wanted – a fairytale princess moment. Greta is so naturally beautiful, so we wanted to enhance her features and stray away from anything too dramatic. We wanted to achieve a romantic yet playful look – just like her black tulle dress. We kept a light, subtle palette with bold, black lashes to match the dress.”

TIPS/TECHNIQUE: “We wanted Greta’s skin to look sheer and luminous, so we applied the Marc Jacobs Beauty Genius Gel Super-Charged Foundation in 22 Bisque Light using a wet Beautyblender sponge to flawlessly blend the foundation into her skin.  To brighten up the face, we applied the Marc Jacobs Beauty Remedy Concealer Pen in 00 Stand Corrected around the eyes and the Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless Bold Blush in 214 Promiscuous on the apple of the cheek and then in 202 Naughty to highlight the cheek bone by the eye.  To keep the focus on the eyes and achieve a romantic and feathery look, we applied the ruby shade from the Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con No. 7 Plush Shadow in The Vamp 208 from the lash line to just above the crease. To finish the eyes, we applied two coats of the Marc Jacobs Beauty Lash Lifter Gel Definition Mascara for definition with a glossy, black finish. To truly capture the feminine look, we used the Marc Jacobs Beauty Lovemarc Lip Gel in 108 Have We Met? – a shimmering warm pink that left Greta feeling and looking like the princess she envisioned.”

PRODUCTS: Marc Jacobs Beauty Genius Gel Super-Charged Foundation ($48), Marc Jacobs Beauty Lash Lifter Gel Definition Mascara ($26), Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless Bold Blush in 202 Naughty ($30),  Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless Bold Blush in 214 Promiscuous ($30),  Marc Jacobs Beauty Lovemarc Lip Gel in in 108 Have We Met?

Guilt Free Chocolate?

407

Well the holidays are over and its time for me to get back on the wagon. As much as I love jamming every cookie I can into my mouth my body is feeling and sadly showing the side effects of my cookie addiction. But when a girl is trying to kick her sugar habit she needs all the help she can get.

Enter the super yummy Chocoholicks palette from jane iredale. It’s four lip glosses that smell like chocolate! I am really having fun with this palette. I have been using Chili Pepper or Blood Orange in the mornings and in the mid afternoon when the cravings hit I use the Espresso and Very Berry.  The gloss is fantastic its thick and rich without being sticky and feels so great on my lips. The colors are all soft, warm and very wearable.  A great collection just for the quality of the gloss added to the fact they are chocolate makes them a must have!
