Makeup

Of course one of our favorite things about award shows and red carpet events is seeing what all the stars are wearing and checking out the beauty looks complementing all that glamour. Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury was on the scene (where else would she be?) and gave us all the secrets to re-creating three makeup looks we loved at the Golden Globes.

From Charlotte’s mouth to all our ears: our friends over at the Tilbury offices put together her top ten brilliant ideas for looking our best (and surviving) this holiday season. Beauty advice and product recommendations from one of the world’s most sought-after makeup artists? We’ll take it!

1. Kick off your morning with hot water and lemon to remove toxins and give yourself a boost of energy. It’s a secret Charlotte learned backstage and is great for getting a clear, glowing complexion!

2. Pamper yourself with an at-home-facial using Charlotte’s gorgeous Goddess Skin Clay Mask for radiant, plumped-up skin. It’s a genius product that instantly gives you a poreless, flawless texture. Follow with the cult-favorite Charlotte’s Magic Cream, a magical mix of patented anti-aging, glow-giving ingredients, to flood your skin with moisture. Then sweep on Wonderglow for instant luminosity and a lit-from-within effect.

In case you missed it, the super-talented Charlotte Tilbury took home Makeup Artist of the Year at the first-ever InStyle Awards. We couldn’t be more happy for her! But even on a night that celebrated Tilbury’s accomplishments, she didn’t sit back and relax. True to form, the ever-busy Tilbury got to working her magic on three friends attending the award show with her—Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio and Olivia Culpo. We loved all three looks (that goes without saying) and couldn’t resist asking how to re-create them. Thankfully, Tilbury’s team agreed to tell us!

I believe that your skin is so important! That’s why I can’t live without my Kate Somerville Dermal Quench Liquid Lift. I prime my face by spraying this before foundation. It plumps out fine lines and gives my skin a lift.

Armani Luminous Silk Foundation is what I apply next. It’s my favorite foundation! I apply it with the beautyblender and my fingertips. It gives you a beautiful glow.

I set my foundation with DiorSkin Nude Air Powder. It holds my makeup on all day and adds a healthy glow!

My perfect foundation look includes five products. After applying my skincare, I move on with a generous amount of the Laura Mercier Radiance Primer. This primer is amazing for any skin type and makeup application. You will look like you have a soft-focus lens on your face and beam with a soft glow. Blend all over the face with fingertips.

Next, I use the Amorepacific CC Compact in color 106. The CC compact is so wonderful! It has a powerful broad-spectrum SPF 50, is ultra hydrating and provides long-lasting, flawless coverage. I apply this compact with the Bobbi Brown Full-Coverage Brush.

Under my eyes, I first apply La Prairie Cellular Eye Essence Platinum Rare. This instantly lifts, firms and brightens–it’s perfect under any concealer! Then I use the new Dior Fix it 2 in 1 Prime & Conceal Concealer, two light swipes under each eye, then tap it in with your ring finger. This concealer has a built in primer, so it glides on flawlessly and provides excellent coverage that lasts all day.

Last, I set everything with the LaMer Translucent Setting Powder. This powder is light, luminous and so silky, so you can use a generous amount without a dry or chalky look. I apply my foundation everyday at 6am, and I am ready for my day, which starts by taking my 8 year old to school. Then I head to work, come home make dinner, help with homework, read a bedtime story…and before I know it, it’s 11pm, and I haven’t had a minute to look in the mirror until I’m ready to wash my face. But my foundation looks just good as when I applied it that morning!

Our second look goes rogue with Krista Fredricks, one of our web designers. The lead artist at our Charlotte Tilbury counter, Rachael Craig, took charge of turning up the volume on Tilbury’s ‘The Rebel’ look. A bold red lip amps it up without taking things too far, which makes it a perfectly versatile idea for almost any costume you can dream up. Team Tilbury has all the steps below for getting a little (or a lot) rebellious.

Halloween makeup ideas: pretty fairy slash Jem and the Rockers.
