The 66th Annual Golden Globes is about to begin and I’m hunkered down on my couch watching the red carpet arrivals. After missing out last year, I’m excited to see all the glamorous red carpet looks this year.
Kristin Scott Thomas, nominated for Best Actress for her work in I’ve Loved You So Long, is the perfect example of what I’ve seen on the red carpet so far. Tons of nude-hued gowns, sleek up-dos and beautiful makeup.
I got the rundown on Kristin’s makeup, created by makeup artist Vanessa Scali:
The look was inspired by her 40′s style Lanvin dress. Â 40′s style is classic simplicity – think Katherine Hepburn. Â Radiant skin, a clean eye and a simple stain on the lips.
UNDEREYE: Â LancÃ´me’s Effecernes in Light Bisque. Â It gives clean, fresh, flawless coverage.
FOUNDATION: Â Applied minimal foundation, Kristen has nearly flawless skin. Â Bobbi Brown Stick foundations #3 .
BLUSH: Â Stila’s All Over Color in Poppy on the apples of the cheeks.
EYESHADOW: Â Le Metier de Beaute’s True Shadow in Sugar all over the eye and sweep of Jojo at the outer corners of the eyes for a touch of drama.
EYE LINER: Â To define and elongate the lashline, I used Le MÃ©tier de Beaute’s Precision Liner in black.
MASCARA: Â I prefer luxuriously full lashes but do not want to sacrifice length. Â So I mix my mediums – DiorShow in Black from the root to the center of the lash and Maybelline’s Lash Stiletto from center to tips. Â The result is gorgeously lush and seductively lengthy lashes!
POWDER: Â The 40′s look is very clean and dewy so only powder where you need it. Â I used Le MÃ©tier de Beaute’s Classic Flawless Finish powder in Translucent.
LIPS: Â I prepped her lips with La Mer’s luxurious lip balm and stained them with Le MÃ©tier de Beaute’s Color Core Lipstick in Kona.Â This gives the lips a bitten look.
Stay tuned for more red carpet looks from the 66th Annual Golden Globes!
