Red Carpet Beauty: Makeup at the 2013 Golden Globes Tuesday 15 January, 2013

It’s all smoke signals on the 2013 Golden Globes red carpet, with smoky eyes in purple, grey and brown heating up celebrities’ makeup looks. No smoke? Then a bold lip will do! Here’s how Katharine McPhee, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Kerry Washington and Jennifer Lopez got their makeup designs.

One after another, the A-listers on the 70th annual Golden Globes red carpet ticked off the reason why they weren’t wearing color. “My stylist said everyone would be wearing color, so I opted for INSERT NON-COLOR HERE,” they all murmured. Black, nude, taupe, blush—they opted for these shades, altogether banishing the bright pops of color they expected. And yet, for makeup, color did come into play. A gorgeous matte crimson lip here, an all-out orange mouth there; gorgeous violet lids and cheeks all awash in apricot: The makeup didn’t disappoint. While smoky eyes reigned supreme, even fresh-faced looks couldn’t be denied. Here, a look at how to get some of the gorgeous A-listers’ makeup looks (Katharine McPhee, Kerry Washington, Jennifer Lopez and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley), from the people behind them.

The Look: “Katharine’s dress looks like it belongs in a Helmut Newton photograph, so I thought the makeup should be strong and sultry…the kind of eye makeup that would be in one of those photographs,” says makeup artist Jake Bailey. “It’s an eye look for sure—a smoky eye with a beautiful nude skin palette.”

How to Get the Look:

Step 1: Spot-treat only the problem areas of skin with NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (new for Spring 2013).

Step 2: Even out skin with Light Reflecting Setting Powder Pressed (new for Spring 2013).

Step 3: Line eyes top and bottom with Via Veneto Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner.

Step 4: Smoke-out eyes with Cordura Duo Eyeshadow. Blend and extend the color out.

Step 5: Accentuate lips with Biscayne Park Satin Lip Pencil (new for Spring 2013).

The Look: “Rosie is so incredibly gorgeous and a bit of a sun-kissed glow really suits her,” says makeup artist Fiona Stiles.

How to Get the Look:

Step 1: Create a flawless skin tone with Burberry Velvet Foundation and Laura Mercier Secret Concealer.

Step 2: Set skin with Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre.

Step 3: Dust Burberry Warm Glow Summer Glow no.4 Bronzer on cheekbones and forehead for a healthy, fresh glow.

Step 4: Amp up skin’s glow some more with Benefit Sun Beam.

Step 5: Using a Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil in Brown Copper, elongate the eye shape. Soften the line with mark I-Mark Wet/Dry Eye Shadow in Tabac. Expert Tip: “I love using brown because it’s so sexy but maintains a soft look,” says Stiles.

Step 6: To lightly accentuate the eye socket, blend Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in Trench No. 2 and Almond No. 6.

Step 7: Apply two coats of mark Lash All You Want High-Volume Mascara in Black to the top lashes and one coat of mark Lash All You Want High-Volume Mascara in Brown/Black to the bottom lashes.

Step 8: Complete the look with mark Lipclick Full Color Lipstick in Cha Cha. Expert Tip: “A red lip cream spells glamour, but I matted down the finish and made the edges soft and undefined, patting it on with my finger for a less overpowering look,” says Stiles.

Step 7: Finish the look with Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in 500 Blush.
