Hourglass Cosmetics at the Golden Globes: Amber Heard


Above: Amber Heard wearing Hourglass Cosmetics at the Golden Globes 2104.
Like many, I adore watching award shows for the red carpet feature that precedes the event rather than the actual ceremony itself.  Much like my own beauty aesthetic, I am always thrilled to see actresses looking like the best version of themselves...clean, radiant skin, rosy cheeks, slightly smoky eyes and a nude lip.  I am excited to the share the first of a few favorite beauty looks of the 71st annual Golden Globe Awards, starting with Amber Heard, whose carefully curated collection of Hourglass cosmetics brought out her natural beauty.  

Some of my personal favorite products from the Hourglass line include the Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation (reviewed HERE and HERE), the Femme Nude Lip Stylos (reviewed HERE), the Ambient Lighting Powders (reviewed HERE and HERE) and No. 28 Lip Oil (reviewed HERE)...Hourglass is simply brilliant!

Amber Heard turned heads at Sunday’s 71st annual Golden Globe Awards. The breathtaking actress, a presenter at the awards ceremony, teamed her midnight blue Atelier Versace dress with a romantic up-do and alluring makeup by Hourglass. “Amber brought some of her own ideas to the mix,” says makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen. “She liked the idea of focusing on sultry chocolate eyes, creamy skin and soft nude lips. I was just bringing out the remarkable geometry and beauty of her face.”

Here’s how to recreate the look:

COMPLEXION: Moisturize skin with Cle de Peau Gentle Nourishing Emulsion. Prime with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, conceal with Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer in Warm, and follow with Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup in Light Beige. “No. 28 hydrates beautifully but it also creates a magical finish,” he says.

BROWS: Define the brows with Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette.

EYES: Apply the shell shade from the Hourglass Vol. 6 Eye Palette as a base color all over the lids. Follow with the bronze shimmer shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy applied to the crease and under the eyes. Deepen the bronze with the brown shade from Vol. 6 Eye Palette applied to the outer corner, top and bottom of the lids. Line the eyes with a deep plum pencil like MAC Eye Kohl Prunella. “I also smudged the line with the black shadow from the palette,” he says. Apply a high-shine pearl shadow to the inner corner of the eye. Apply a coat of Hourglass Film Noir Mascara, allow to dry and curl lashes. Amplify with individual lashes like Ardell Duralash Flare in Medium Black.

CHEEKS: Apply the sheer rose shade from Hourglass Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset to the cheeks, and highlight with the sheer champagne shade from Hourglass Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Bronze Light. Retrace your steps with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Ethereal Light, an opalescent sheer powder which mimics a moonlit glow.

LIPS: Line lips with Hourglass Trace Lip Liner in Bare and follow with Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in Whisper, a golden pinky beige shimmer. “The look is glamorous but restrained,” adds VanLeeuwen. “She is so extraordinarily beautiful.”

Bottom Line: I personally love reading about what makeup products are used to achieve a particular beauty look and hope you enjoyed this beauty breakdown!  Next up, Kate Beckinsale, followed by my post on how to combat winter dryness! 

Hope your weekend was absolutely lovely...xx,
