Salma Hayek at The Golden Globes 2009

Celebrity Makeup Artist Matthew Vanleeuwen used NARS Cosmetics to create Salma Hayek’s makeup look for the Golden Globes. Read on to find out how to re-create Salma’s hot red carpet look.

Eyes
Apply the China Blue Single Eyeshadow to the top and bottom lash line. Matthew’s tip: “I love using navy colours because they make the whites of the eyes pop.” Next, use the Corfu Cream Eyeshadow as a base, all over the eyelid. Use the golden champagne side of the Alhambra Duo Eyeshadow on the lid.

Then, use the Bengali Single Eyeshadow all along the lash line, rubbing it into the lash line, deepening the outer corner of the eye, creating shading. Curl the eyelashes and apply 2 coats of Black Orchid Mascara on the lashes. Go back over the top lash line with the Night Clubbing Eyeshadow  and use what is left on the brush under the eye to define it. Matthew’s tip:“This shade is perfect to create a smokey eye – it gives a rich sparkle at the lash line with undertones of green and gold.”

Complexion
Use the Brightening Serum to make skin glow and apply the Makeup Primer.
Apply the Firming Foundation and set it with the Loose Powder.

Lips
Use the Marnie Lipliner Pencil and Tutti Fruity Lipstick
Next, mix the Boogie Nights and Greek Holiday Lipglosses and apply them over the lipstick
Blush.

Apply the Desire Blush to the apple of cheeks. Matthew’s tip: “I use a powder brush to apply blush. I find that a bigger brush makes a much softer wash of colour.” Next, use the Laguna Bronzer with short, back and forth stokes from the back of the cheekbone forward to blend.

Now you’ve got no excuse not to look like a Hollywood A-lister.
