Get The Look: Lena Dunham at The Golden Globe Awards

See also

Girls Actress and Writer, Lena Dunham stepped out in a pretty canary hued Zac Posen gown at last night’s Golden Globe Awards Ceremony. While the dress was beautiful, it was Lena’s stunning beauty look that stole the show. A different look for the star, Lena’s glamorous take on makeup looked both elegant and impeccably chic.

While many artists chose to take the traditional route in beauty, celebrity Makeup Artist Jo Strettell decided to step ahead of the pack and use airbrush makeup on the nominated actress. Using a variety of TEMPTU Pro cosmetics in addition to other beauty products, Jo created a sophisticated look that begs to be recreated.

Here’s how you can recreate this classic look yourself:

Prep – prior to airbrushing skin, a proper foundation is essential. Jo chose to prep skin with TEMPTU’s Smooth and Matte Base Primer.

Foundation—for flawless application, Jo airbrushed skin with TEMPTU AIRpod Foundation and blended a little product from TEMPTU Concealer Wheel around the nose and under the eyes to achieve a pristine and immaculate look. To seal the look, Jo lightly dusted skin with TEMPTU Invisible Difference Finishing Powder.

Blush – to get that perfectly flushed look, Jo opted for TEMPTU AIR pod blush in Red. Applying product on the cheeks gave Lena’s a soft petal-y flush.

Eyes—finely run L’Oreal’s Telescopic Waterproof eye liner along the upper lash line and under the lower lashes. Amplify this eye catching look by layering lashes with L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara. Finish the eyes by applying SENSI Liquid Liner in between lashes for a more dramatic look.

Lips—get Lena’s perfect coral pout by swiping Maybelline’s Color Sensational Vivids Lip Color in Neon Red #890. Jo chose this coral-y orange red as the lip of the evening because it wonderfully complimented Lena’s yellow gown.

Lena’s absolutely stunned at last night’s awards. From the dress to the makeup, she did not miss on fashionable beat. Would you try this chic look on yourself?
