THE BEST MAKE-UP LOOKS FROM THE GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS 2017 AND HOW TO RECREATE THEM
The gorgeous gowns were not the only thing that caught our attention at the 74th Golden Globe Awards. We were swooning over the striking make-up-looks, which are sure to set the agenda for the beauty trends to come over the coming months. Here are some of our favourite looks and some top tips from make-up artist James McKnight on how you can re-create them…
The best actress nominee looked radiant in her yellow Prada gown, which she chose to accentuate with rosy pink cheeks and a punchy pink lip.
James Top Tips: “This pink lip can be created with i-pout in Pomegranate. Use a pink blusher such as i-glow in Ice Pop high on the apples of the cheeks, to add a soft flush. To avoid looking pink all over, make sure that your nose and mouth area are well concealed.”
The Rules Don’t Apply actress showed off her porcelain skin with a matte, brick-red lip, teamed with a wash of dusty pink eyeshadow – an unusual combination, which she pulled off beautifully.
James Top Tips: “Before applying a bright lip colour, it’s important to prep the lips. Exfoliate lips before applying i-pout Lipstick in Ruby Red with our Retractable Lip Brush. Balance this vivid lip with a strong, sculpted brow, which can be created with i-groom.”

Make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury gave Kidman a mesmerising look. Minky grey eyeshadow was blended with a metallic silver tone to make the actress dazzle on the red carpet. Tilbury described the look as “dreamy, ethereal, and has a little bit of a rock chick kind of edge to it.”
James’s Top Tips: “This classic smokey eye will suit women of all ages. Get the look by using i-shadow in Aspen. Apply the silver shade all over the lids and then add the darker grey colour through the sockets and lash line. i-pout Lipstick in Dusk will finish the look off beautifully.”
Not many dark lips were seen on the red carpet, but Washington sure did make a statement with an inky plum pout, that flattered her golden skin tone. She paired this bold lip with long voluminous lashes.
James’s Top Tips: “This is a real statement lip that works best with subtle eyes and skin. Try i-pout in Deep Plum and remember to always apply a strong lip colour with a brush, for a precise finish. As for the rest of the make-up, keep the eyes neutral using i-shadow in Choca Mocha – apply the bronze shade all over the lid and smoke out the sockets with the darker brown colour.”
SARAH JESSICA PARKER
Make-up artist Leslie Lopez gave the 51 year-old actress a luminous look. Dewy skin, a charcoal smokey eye and pale pink lips worked beautifully against Parker’s white gown.
James’s Top Tips: “This dewy skin can be created by mixing a drop of i-illuminise with your usual foundation. The liquid highlighter contains micro-fine pearls that will give you a truly radiant glow. To re-create this eye look – use i-smoulder in Charcoal on the lids for a soft, smudgy effect. For more drama, use i-gel in Black along the water line.”
“It’s all about turn of the century vintage glamour,” said make-up artist Rachel Goodwin who created this look on the best actress winner.
Stone wore a subtle liner, a touch of blusher and a soft pink lip to compliment her embellished Valentino gown.
James’s Top Tips: “This is a classic look that can be worn at spring weddings or a first date, and it’s really simple to create. Use a cream eyeshadow like I-colour in Tourmaline all over the lids, before drawing a fine line using i-flick in Black. Finish by enhancing the lips with a touch of i-shine in Cosmopolitan.”
Culpo rocked one of the most stand-out looks of the night. Terracotta and gold eyeshadow blended on the lids, a bold brow and vampy beige matte lip looked stunning with her intricate Zuhair Murad gown.
James’s Top Tips: “This gorgeous eye look can be created by using i-smoulder in Chocolate all the way up to the crease of the eyelid, then soften the edges with fingertips. Dab a touch of i-glow in Sirocco on the inner corner and centre part of the eyes for a really expensive-looking glow. Then for an all over sculpted glow, use i-bronze in Rio. Make a ‘3 shape’ with your brush, starting at the temple, going down along the hollow of the cheek and just under the jawline.”
