Michelle Dockery looked breathtaking, like a classic English rose, thanks to celeb makeup artist Jordan Long, who created Michelle's Golden Globes look with Votre Vu products. Jordon and Michelle wanted to create a look that was classic old Hollywood glamour, so they kept it soft and feminine, but played with a little color to make a pop against the muted oyster shell tone of her Oscar de La Renta gown. For those who wish to get Michelle Dockery's beautiful, feminine, soft and stunning Golden Globes look for Valentine's day, be sure to follow Jordan Long's makeup tips using Votre Vu products.
First, Jordan prepped Michelle’s skin with a warm washcloth to soften the skin and get the blood circulating. Then she used a tiny amount of Votre Vu’s Attentive Crème du Jour all over Michelle's face and neck, as well as, a tiny bit of the Luxee Yeux Eye Beauty Balm around her eye contour.
After prepping the skin, and applying foundation and a bit of concealer, Jordan used a foundation brush to stipple on Vu-On Rouge in Ma Cherry. The creamy consistency was perfect to keep Michelle Dockery’s skin glowing. Jordan likes using brushes because it’s like painting and she can sheer out the color and build it up as much she wants to. It’s a light touch, like a watercolor painting, so she can build up the color until it’s just right! Per Jordan, using a brush or sponge on top of the foundation doesn’t move around the foundation.
Then Jordan used a light dusting of powder on Michelle's t-zone and on her cheek to set the cheek color. She went back with a big blush brush and used the Beaute en Bronze in Monaco bronzer just on the forehead and the outside of the cheek bone. Then went back with the Vu-On Rouge and stippled on at the apple to give a bit more color to Michelle's cheeks.
Jordan then powdered Michelle's lids and used the dusty pink from Votre Vu’s Palette in Play in Violette on her lids up into the crease with a domed eye shadow brush and rocked it back and forth to blend it out. Then went back in with the dark purple from the same palette and mixed the dusty pink and the purple to make a medium plum color. Jordan used a rocking motion to blend that in the outer corners with the same dome brush. Then, taking a small angled eyeshadow brush, brought the plum color underneath onto Michelle's lower lash line.
TIP: When you really want to blend in the eyelid and the crease, the rocking motion ensures that the color is blended really well. Jordan prefers applying in layers and building up the color, instead of using a lot of color all at once.
Using a smaller brush, Jordan pressed the pink/purple combo closer into Michelle's lash line for a more concentrated color and to create more depth. Jordan applied the Le Joli Crayon in Aubergine first, then went over it with Le Joli Crayon in Charbon along the upper lash line, smudged it out and went back with a smaller domed brush and used the dark purple eyeshadow and concentrated it on the outer lash line and brought it up a bit and blended. Then with another small domed brush, Jordan used the light vanilla shade from the Palette in Play in Copper and worked that in the inner corner of Michelle’s eyes and underneath the brow. Next, with an angled brush, she lightly filled in Michelle’s brows with the Arch de Triumphe in Dark Brown very lightly. After curling the lashes and applying a strip of false lashes and some individual ones, Jordan then applied three coats of Eiffel Power mascara on Michelle's upper and lower lash line.
For Michelle's lips, Jordan prepped them by applying a bit of concealer lightly all over and then dusted a tiny bit of powder. This neutralized everything for a nice base. Then, she applied lip liner over Michelle's entire lip and applied the French Kiss in Chloe on top. Jordan used a lip brush to apply this for extreme precision.
TIP: Jordan likes to use a brush when using bold colors because its more precise than applying from the tube. You can also layer and go from a stain to a really opaque lip instead of having to backtrack, especially when working with bright or intense lip colors. Jordan is a huge fan of layering, and also likes to layer cheek colors the same way.
Since Michelle wore a strapless dress at the 2014 Golden Globes, Jodan applied Votre Vu’s Amour D’Ore multi-vitamin oil all over her décolleté and shoulders and down her arms for a subtle beautiful sheen.
