Even though it’s been 10 days since the Golden Globes, (which makes them borderline ancient history) I keep coming back to the absolutely gorgeous look that superstar makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury did for nominee Alicia Vikander.

This was easily my favorite look of the night.
It was timeless and elegant, yet totally modern. It evoked old Hollywood glamour, and yet was so fresh and new.

I kind of died a little over her Louis Vuitton dress too…
I think one of the things I love most about it is that it’s a look that you and I can wear. It is a sensational look for a bride, it’s perfect for any event you’re going to (can’t you just imagine Amal Clooney rocking this look?), it looks beautiful with whatever you are wearing. If you are throwing on jeans and a biker jacket, if you are dressing for the Met Gala, or anything in between, this makeup look is perfect.
“I wanted to create a dreamy but modern look that highlighted Alicia’s naturally beautiful features. The metallic shades on her eyes complement the dewy, fresh skin in the look.” – Charlotte Tilbury
So here are some of the steps that Charlotte used (ad that you and I can copy!) to create this stunning look.
The key to a really fantastic looking makeup is not what you do with the eyes or the lips, its all about creating an amazing complexion. For more than 20 years now models and celebrities all around the world have been raving about Charlotte’s legendary, secret Magic Cream
Everyone wanted to get their hands on it, but until recently it hasn’t been available to anyone but the very tightest of her inner circle.
Now you can buy it on her website CharlotteTilbury.com
The next step to creating that lit from within glow was using Wonderglow Primer
before applying her foundation. Mini Miracle Eye Wand
added luminosity under the eyes. You can use it before or after concealer. (Personally I like to tap it on after.)
To get this bronzey, luminous cheek Charlotte used Filmstar Bronze And Glow
in light/medium, a little Dreamy Glow Highlighter
along the upper cheekbone and her Beach Stick cream blush in Las Salinas
Charlotte created this gorgeous golden shimmer of an eye by using some of my favorite of her products. Eyes To Mesmerise Cream Shadow in Bette
and in Marie Antoinette, both on the lid and underneath, topped with a little Rock ‘n’ Kohl Liner in Bedroom Black
and several coats of inky, glossy Full Fat Lashes

As of today it doesn’t look like I will be working the Oscars this year, but there is still a few weeks to go, so maybe I will be back again working my absolute favorite gig of the year. You absolutely cannot beat prepping a client for the biggest red carpet in the world!
Regardless of whether I am working it or not I’ll be looking to see what magic Charlotte is creating. I call it research….
