Marjorie’s Lavish Look For Less: The Halo Effect

Beauty products and Giambattista Valli Baby Doll Dress fashion outfit

Last week, Marjorie turned heads in the stunning swing of a Giambattista Valli baby doll dress and a sweet pair of Gaimbattista Valli embellished heels. We’re recreating this heavenly look, from head-to-toe, so that you, too, can master the glowing halo effect.  We also sat down with Marjorie’s personal beauty team, who showed us how to capture that luminous summer skin and the effortless effect of  her breathtaking bob. Dive deep into all the stunning summer glam below.

(2.) Self-Portrait Long Sleeve Lace Trim Crepe Dress ($395)
(3.) ASOS Hero Embellished Heel Sandals ($89)

The Skin:
Marjorie’s personal makeup artist, Courtney Gower, says that when it comes to summertime makeup, the focus should be on the skin: “You want to look like you’re glowing! I use a mixture of foundations to build out Marjorie’s radiance. Also, a Beauty Blender is key. It helps control the amount of foundation so that you can layer in for a flawless finish.”


Prime the face with a deeply moisturizing misting oil, like (4.) Pixi By Petra Beauty Glow Mist ($15). Courtney says this is the key secret to mastering the radiance: “You can also seal the look with a tiny spritz at the end.”

Using a (5.) The Beauty Blender ,($20) layer in three foundations:

(6.) Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation 13 ($62)
(7.) Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer 14 ($62)
(8.) Koh Gen Do Mai Fanshi Moisture Foundation ($62) (Marjorie’s favorite)

Dust the skin with a bit of iridescent powder, like (9.) La Mer The Powder Translucent ($140), and you’re good to glow!


The Lips:
(10.) MAC Cosmetics Lip Pencil In Spice ($17)
(11.) Laura Mercier Lip Gloss In Pink Pop ($25)

The Eyes:
Sweep a gentle shimmer over the eye. Marjorie loves the new (12.) Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Shimmering Skin Perfector ($34).

Create a winged cat-eye with (13.) Inglot Amc Eyeliner Gel In Black  77 ($14).

Set the brows with (14.) Senna Brow Gel In Golden Brown ($18).


The Cheeks:
To capture the sweet golden undertones use (15.) Becca Shimmer Skin Perfector In Snapdragon Pink ($34)

The Hair:
Marjorie’s hairstylist, Dawn White, says Marjorie’s new haircut, the long-layered bob, leaves room for major versatility: “The cut comes just above the collar, but it’s lengthier on the sides so there’s still room for styling versatility. You can add a loose wave, curls, or style perfectly straight.”


Get the look:

Help control the texture by smoothing out individual pieces with a flat iron–this will help regulate the volume as well. Using a curling wand, section off the pieces and curl. Spray with a holding spray, such as  (16.) Moroccan Oil Luminous Hair Spray  ($24). For extra glow, pretreat the hair with (17.) Moroccan Oil Treatment ($15).
