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.”

Get The Look: Emily Blunt in Kiehl’s at the 2015 Golden Globes

Emily Blunt 2015 Golden Globe Nominee ~ Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards ~ Los Angeles, CA ~ January 11th, 2015

Makeup by Jenn Streicher for Kiehl’s and Dior Beauty

INSPIRATION:
“Emily is wearing a gorgeous white Michael Kors dress with to-die-for jewels by Lorraine Schwartz – both the dress and jewels were custom made just for Emily. I can’t remember the last time Emily wore white on the red carpet! Because she just returned from a sunny get-away, her skin was perfectly bronzed for a white gown. And because we decided to have her hair loosely back I wanted her makeup to be soft and ethereal and just a pop of color on the lips to bring out the jewels.

“The first and most important step is prepping the skin. I started with Kiehls’ Ultra Facial Cream and Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado. And because I knew Emily would wear a matte lip, I slathered her lips in the Kiehls Lip Balm #1. I then started on Emily’s eye makeup so her skin treatments could properly absorb.”

“For her eyes, I dabbed on Dior’s Backstage Eye Prime over the entire lid and then mixed 2 of the lightest shades of Dior’s eye palette “Cuir Cannage” #796 over the lid. I also mixed two of the darker shades of the same palette in her crease, concentrating on the outside corners and a bit on the lower lash line. I also brushed a bit of her blush (Cocktail Peach #553) on her lids. I dabbed on Dior’s long wearing cream shadow in Chimere over the entire lid to give it a little shimmer. And, of course, tons of Dior Show Mascara.

“Before I started on the foundation, I used a bit of the Kiehls Micro-Blur Skin Perfector in the T-zone and then applied the Diorskin Star makeup followed by the Diorskin Star brightening concealer to cover any little imperfections or redness.”

“And then, for my favorite part of the look, Dior lipstick #169 Grege with just a bit of the new Rouge Dior Lipshine in #808 over the top. Emily told me it might be her favorite look I’ve ever done on her!”

Get The Look: Allison Williams’ Golden Globes St Tropez Beauty

Allison William Golden Globes St Tropez Beauty

WHO: Allison Williams ​

WHERE: Golden Globe Awards​

SKIN AND MAKEUP BY: Gianpaolo Ceciliato​

INSPIRATION: “Old Hollywood Glamour with a Rock and Roll Edge. We achieved this look with a glowing complexion, bold smoky eye and nude lip.”​

TIPS/TECHNIQUE: “For an instant, evenly bronzed glow, I swept St. Tropez One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion onto exposed skin using the Applicator Mitt to create luminous, dewy skin that just reflects the flashing lights of the camera. It dries in seconds and is waterproof and transfer resistant so we did not have to worry about Allison’s dress. For a smoky eye effect, I rimmed the entire eye very close to lash line with black pencil and covered the lid with Armani Eye Tint #1 (black) and #7 (gunmetal) to create shimmery dimension. I chose a beige lipstick with subtle shine to complete Allison’s look. The hue added enough color to her lips without competing with her bold red gown.”​
