When it came to red carpet style at the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards, it was all about being soft, feminine and delicate. Blush, pink and nude colors ruled the carpet and the same can be said for the beauty trends. One stand out Star was Disney darling, Selena Gomez whose look was created by celebrity make-up artist, Karan Mitchell. Inspired by Gomez’s beautiful Catherine Deane coral colored gown with golden chain accents, Mitchell relied exclusively on Anastasia Beverly Hills products to achieve an ultra feminine, fun and flirty look. The result was flawless. Here’s a breakdown of what went into creating Selena’s look. All Anastasia Beverly Hills products are available at Sephora, Nordstrom, ULTA & Anastasia.net.
CREATING SELENA’S SHOW STOPPING EYES & LASHES
For the base of the lid, Mitchell used the first two shades from the ILLUMIN8 with YOUTHFUL SYNERGY™ COMPLEX EYE SHADOW PALETTE#1 ($40), blending on the eyelid as well as from the crease to the brow as a highlight.
Then she blended the soft plum accent shade 4 from ILLUMIN8 with YOUTHFUL SYNERGY™ COMPLEX EYE SHADOW PALETTE#1 on the crease as well as blending up and outward all the way to the eyebrow on the outer edges.
Next, Mitchell wet the deep onyx shade from ILLUMIN8 with YOUTHFUL SYNERGY™ COMPLEX EYE SHADOW PALETTE#2 and used it as a liquid liner on the top lashes.
Treat your eyelashes as you do your hair. You want to round-brush Lash Lifting Mascara ($22) into the root of your upper and lower lashes for definition.
CREATING SELENA’S FIERCE BROWS
To define brows begin with sketching in Brow Wiz (Selena used Medium Ash) over brows using light upward strokes, filling in brows completely, as if you were drawing little hairs.
Then use the wand brush on the other end of Brow Wiz ($20) to blend the brow color through. This will soften the product and create a natural effect.
To highlight the brow bone apply Brow Duality ($23) (Selena used Camille/ Sand) highlighter pencil on the brow bone starting above the iris to the end of the brow and blend using the fingertip.
To ensure longevity brush Clear Brow Gel ($21) in short upward strokes, being sure to apply in the same direction of hair growth. This will lock it in!
GET SELENA’S GORGEOUS LIPS & CHEEKS
Using the amazing wand, swipe HydraFull Gloss ($21) across the lips.
Using your ring finger gently tap the crème cheek color from the Highlighting Crème Duo ($35) (Selena used St Tropez) to apples of cheeks, blending to hairline.
For a sexy glow and highlighted cheekbones apply a small amount of the liquid highlighter along the cheekbones and blend on to your shoulders too!Click here for the Golden Globes 2011 Red Carpet Breakdown : The good, the bad and the unimpressive
