The effortless glam of Mary J. Blige’s smokey noir eye and nude lip combo at last night’s Golden Globes got us all dreamy about makeup that captures that oh-so-Hollywood mystique.
D’ Andre Michael, Mary J. Blige’s makeup artist and the master behind the look, gives the scoop on the inspiration: “We went with a classic and elegant makeup look for the Golden Globes red carpet.”
We gathered up all the glamorous goodies he actually used so that you, too, can create this classic face:
The Eyes: Michael started with Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette in Glambition ($50) and used the shade “Over The Top” from the palette on Blige’s entire eyelid, “Glamour” from the lash to crease, and “Infamous” along the brow bone. Next, he applied Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Blacquer 42 ($25) along the bottom of the eyelid and smudged the shade “Glamour” from the Glambition palette along her bottom lashes. Michael finished with a few coats of Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara ($26) to her lashes.
The Cheeks: Michael swiped Marc Jacobs Beauty Air Blush Soft Glow Duo in 506 Flesh & Fantasy ($42) an ivory shimmer/bronze duo on the apples of her cheeks.
The Lips: Michael applied Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in Slow Burn 246 ($35), a creamy nude rose shade, to her lips, layered with Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer Lipgloss in 344 Skin Deep ($34), an opaque taupe-mauve shade.
