Makeup artist extraordinaire Charlotte Tilbury shares her tips on how she created the mesmerizing Golden Globes beauty look for Penelope Cruz.
It’s important to start with a good clean base and Tilbury uses a clay mask and a sheet mask. She then drenches the skin with moisture Rénergie Day Cream and a touch of eye cream to ensure the makeup goes on like magic followed by La Base Pro primer which is key to a natural glow.
“On Penélope I created a foundation base using Teint Idole Ultra 24H Long Wear Foundation that minimized shine in the right places, mattified the T-zone and gave her cheeks a healthy, youth-boosted glow,” she says.
Those bold smokey eyes are stuff of dreams which you can achieve at home by lining the eyes with the Grandiôse Liner in Matte Noir – don’t forget to add Penélope’s signature feline flick. Tilbury then used Color Design 5 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Bronze Amour to prime the eye with a champagne shade back and forth across the eyelid. Add the bronze and copper shades around the outer corner of the eyes and finish with the chocolate brown hue along the lash-line. Finally, go heavy on Grandiôse Mascara.
“I lined the lips with an incredible iconic pillow-y lip liner, and then filled in the lips using L’Absolu Rogue Lipstick in Crème de Marron to her lips,” says Tilbury.
She then added a golden-flecked Blush Subtil in Aplum onto her cheeks for a natural flushed look and voila Cruz was red carpet ready.
Time for you to enjoy a moment in the spotlight.
