Golden Globes 2009: Lancôme Shares the Look in Makeup

Lancôme products used

Fresh-faced beauty was certainly the trend at this year's Golden Globes and there was no shortage of the natural, dewy elegance everywhere. Lancôme has been kind enough to share the makeup looks, products used and tips for three of the night's gorgeous actresses: Kate Winslet, Anne Hathaway and Angelina Jolie. Here's the scoop.

Celebrity makeup artist Jillian Dempsey did Lancôme ambassador Kate Winslet’s makeup and gave us the scoop on the makeup she used. Jillian wanted to play up Kate’s eyes, cheeks and lips. She used Jillian Dempsey for Avon Professional Kohl Eyeliner in Black on the upper lash line first and then applied dark brown eyeliner and smudged it on the lower lashes. Next, she lightly dusted Lancôme Color Design Eye Shadow in Chic on the eyelid. To make Kate’s eyes pop, she added a few coats of Lancôme Ôscillation Mascara in Black. Next, Jillian added some color to the apples of the cheeks by custom blending several shades of coral, peachy blushes together. Jillian opted for a classic red lip and finished the look with Avon Pro-to-Go Lipstick in Cherry Glisten. Kate looked stunning as she accepted the first award of the night for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Reader!

Celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee created the gorgeous look for Lancôme ambassador Anne Hathaway. Anne looked statuesque in a beautiful navy Armani Privé gown that complimented her alabaster skin tone. Kate wanted to create a classic beauty look, so she chose to focus on the eyes and lips. She applied a dark liner to the base of the lashes and used a small brush to blend a dark eye shadow from the lash line upwards. Chanel Soft Touch Eye Shadow in Slate was applied to the crease and along the lower lash line. Next, she curled the lashes with a Shu Uemura eyelash curler and applied several layers of Chanel Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir. For the brows, Kate used Lancôme Le Crayon Poudre in Brunet which was perfect to gently add depth and definition to Anne’s brows. Lancôme Effacernes Concealer in Ivoire was applied under the eyes. Kate sculpted the cheekbones with Chanel Powder Blush in Nude and then applied Lancôme Absolue Powder in Absolute Peche to the top of the cheek bones and along the jaw and clavicle. The lips were a dark raspberry stain. To achieve this, she used a neutral lip liner that matched the color of Anne’s natural lip shade and then applied Chanel Hydrabase Lipstick in Lotus Rouge and blended so here were no hard lines of color. Finally, Chanel Poudre Cristalline was applied to take away the shine from the forehead, nose and chin. A quick spritz of Lancôme Magnifique and Anne was out the door!

Celebrity makeup artist Mary Burton created the beautiful look for Angelina Jolie and gave us an exclusive glimpse on how to recreate it. Angelina looked ravishing in a sparkling, silver Versace floor-length gown. Mary wanted to create a sheer, natural look and choose to focus on the eyes. She applied Lancôme Artliner in Noir (my favorite eyeliner, by the way) to the lash line starting at the inner corner and blending out. To create drama, Mary used two different mascaras, Lancôme Courbe Virtuôse Mascara in Black and Lancôme Ôscillation Mascara in Black and applied a few coats of both to add volume and length. She added just a touch of color to the apples of her cheeks by applying Lancôme Color Design Blush in Model Mocha with her finger. To finish the look, Mary used Lancôme Juicy Tubes in Spring Fling for a soft, pale pink, glossy pout.

Here are more beautiful faces to admire and makeup looks to recreate.

Henson - played Brad Pitt's mom in Benjamin Button; she was absolutely luminous in her J.

  1. I love all the natural looks that all the actresses are wearing. I think Anne Hathaway stood out the most though.
