Makeup At The Golden Globes: Salma Hayek


Salma Hayek is one of my favorite non-blondes and her at last night's Golden Globes was absolutely perfect. I usually ignore the emails from PR companies detailing the products used on celebrities for such occassions, mostly because it's rarely that simple and more often than not, the makeup artist custom mixes many things together and layers so many coats of paint you can't (and don't want to, really) get the look.

But in this case, things look pretty straightforward and this look, created by NARS Makeup Artist Matthew Vanleeuwen, is worth noting and it's at least a good starting point for us, non-blonded, to get inspired in case we have a red carpet event coming soon. Here's what they say (I think I need to get that Brightening Serum):

Eyes:
· Apply the China Blue Single Eyeshadow to top and bottom lash line [Matthew’s tip: “I love using navy colors because they make the whites of the eyes pop.”]
· Next, use the Corfu Cream Eyeshadow as a base, all over eyelid
· Use the golden champagne side of the Alhambra Duo Eyeshadow on lid
· Then, use the Bengali Single Eyeshadow all along the lash line, rubbing it into the lash line, deepening the outer corner of the eye, creating shading
· Curl the eyelashes and apply 2 coats of Black Orchid Mascara on lashes
· Go back over top lash line with the Night Clubbing Eyeshadow and use what is left on the brush under the eye to define it

Complexion:
· Use the Brightening Serum to make skin glow and apply the Makeup Primer
· Apply the Firming Foundation and set with the Loose Powder

Lips
· Use the Marnie Lipliner Pencil and Tutti Fruity Lipstick
· Next, mix the Boogie Nights and Greek Holiday Lipglosses and apply them over the lipstick

Blush
· Apply the Desire Blush to the apple of cheeks [Matthew’s tip: “I use a powder brush to apply blush. I find that a bigger brush makes a much softer wash of color.”]
· Next, use the Laguna Bronzer with short, back and forth stokes from the back of cheekbone forward, to blend.

  1. I wish I could stop staring at her chest long enough to notice her makeup! Okay, I tore my eyes away...I do like her makeup - it's tasteful and flattering. She looks great (and fecund, too).
