How to Copy Sofia Vergara's Golden Globes Makeup Look
Posted 01/16/12 at 11:06AM by Audrey Fine
What were the secrets behind her beautiful makeup that so perfectly set off her navy Vera Wang gown? Makeup artist Kayleen McAdams shares the details below.
"This look is all about the lips," McAdams says. "We chose a bright plum lip and kept the eyes soft with bronze shadow and multiple coats of mascara. The dress is a gorgeous shade of teal and the hair is very sleek and youthful so we wanted the makeup to stand out and look youthful as well."
Face: "I started by applying COVERGIRL TRUconceal Concealer #4, $6.59, under the eyes and around the nose. I then applied COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation in Nutmeg, $13.99, with a sponge and set that with COVERGIRL Clean Pressed Powder in Soft Honey, $7.99. I chose a plum-toned blush (COVERGIRL Cheekers Blush in Plumberry Glow, $4.50) and applied it along the cheekbones and apples of the cheeks."
Eyes: I applied COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers 3-kit Shadow in Golden Sunset, $6.49, all over the lid and into the crease and then applied three coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast 24HR Mascara, $7.99, to the top lashes and one coat on the bottom."
Lips: "I applied COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipcolor in Everlasting, $7.49, first and then applied COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipliner in Beloved, $6.49. This keeps the lipstick from bleeding, but makes it easier to apply the line with the moisture of the lipstick."
"When she was ready to hit the red carpet, I sent Sofia on her way with powder, lip pencil, and lipstick for reapplication."
