Celebrity makeup artist Kristofer Buckle used Dior Beauty products to create a stunning “golden goddess” makeup look for “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively at the 2009 Emmy Awards in Los Angeles this evening.

“I used a lot of warm, honey colors on her skin and lips to make her green eyes pop,” said Buckle. “Then I topped off the look with tons of DiorShow Blackout Mascara, which transformed her upper and lower lashes into expressive frames.”

Skin: DiorSkin Airflash Spray Foundation in #301, Dior Skinflash #3 around the eyes.
Lips: Dior Serum de Rouge Lipstick as a base with Dior Lip Polish in Radiance Expert on top.
Eyes: DiorShow Blackout Mascara, Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow in Beige Messai #705
Cheeks: DiorBronze Original Tan in Amber Tan #03

*Makeup artist tip: “I used Dior Eye Show in Undressed Beige on Blake’s cheekbones and shoulders to create an ethereal glow,” said Buckle. “It’s technically an eyeshadow but it works basically anywhere you want to reflect the light!”

Renato Campora for Frederic Fekkai styled Blake Lively’s hair into a long braid.

INSPIRATION:
A goddess style updo inspired by the modernity and elegance of the red Versace gown.

HOW TO GET THE LOOK:

Renato Campora started out by applying FEKKAI COIFF™ STRONG HOLD VOLUME MOUSSE onto wet hair. Next he blow-dried the hair smooth and applied the FEKKAI COIFF™ EXTRA CONTROL STYLING GEL to prep the hair. He then teased all the hair and pulled it up into a high ponytail. By adding some hair extensions to the ponytail, he created extra length for a more dramatic look. Afterward, he braided the entire ponytail and fastened at the end. Campora finished by applying FEKKAI COIFF™ MAGNIFIQUE ULTRA-LIGHT FINISHING CRÈME throughout the entire look for a smooth and sleek effect.
