The 69th Golden Globes – Spotlight on Jodie Foster’s Elegantly Polished Hair and Makeup

18 Jan

Text, Vivian Kelly

The morning after the 69th Annual Golden Globes, our winners for “best-dressed/most beautiful”  were: Charlize Theron, Madonna, and of course, Angelina Jolie, who managed to look even more beautiful than ever in her cream Atelier Versace gown. The woman is unnaturally gorgeous, almost cartoon like in perfection and always a reliable glamour fix even if we get our dose from afar.

The above women are so stunning that they may not be as relatable as another actor, Jodie Foster. She’s Hollywood Royalty and has been since her big screen debut as “Nina”  a teenage prostitute in  Martin Scorcese’s Taxi Driver in 1976. This star has “class” and gamely smiled [and actually appeared relaxed] when Globes’ host, Ricky Gervais, took a few verbal cracks at her. Maybe having a perfectly made-up face, thanks to Carol Shaw, helped her keep her cool.

  Carol Shaw is a Celebrity Makeup Artist and Founder of LORAC Cosmetics, an excellent brand that keeps a relatively low profile, like Jodie.
Jodie’s overall look was fresh, modern and glamorous. It’s that off-hand elegant look that takes work, but for a big night like this, it’s worth it!
The Look in a Nutshell: shimmering champagne and smoky brown eyes, bronze cheeks and light peach glossy lips
Below, the HOW TO, courtesy of LORAC
Complexion:
  • Apply AquaPRIME Oil Free Makeup Primer to prepare skin for smooth, long-lasting makeup application
  • Smooth Breakthrough Performance Foundation in SMS 3 all over skin for flawless coverage and a youthful radiance
  • Give skin a silky-smooth picture perfect finish with POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder in PF2
Eyes:
  • Prime the eyelid with Behind the Scenes Eye Primer
  • To give eyes a hint of sparkle, use the shimmering champagne and nude shadows in the NEW UNZIPPED Eye Shadow Palette (available at Sephora this spring)
  • Define eyes by tracing the lash line with Front of the Line Pro Eyeliner in Black
  • Create dramatic, voluminous lashes with Multiplex 3D Lashes Mascara
  • Brows:
  • Fill in brows with Creamy Brow Pencil in Blonde
Cheeks:
  • Brighten skin while giving a natural radiant glow with Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder in Luminous
  • Apply Baked Matte Satin Blush in Exposed to give cheeks a peachy pink pop of color
  • Finish by lightly dusting TANtalizer Baked Bronzer all over for a subtle glow
Lips:
  • Line lips with Nude Pencil #18 to define and keep lip gloss in place
  • Apply NEW Lips With Benefits in Mark (available this spring) for a long-lasting glossy finish
Body:
  • Mix TANtalizer Body Bronzing Luminizer with Breakthrough Performance Foundation in SMS 3 and apply to exposed arms and neck for a natural Red Carpet tan that is about as removed from Snookie’s orange glow as you can get. Can you really see Jodie Foster running to a Mystic Tan spray booth or laying in a tanning coffin covered in coconut grease?

    So glad you discussed the ever radiant Angelina. She looked classic and stunning and it seemed was a bit overlooked. Very nice discussion about her as well as how nicely Jodie Foster presented herself as a true dynamo!

      Thx! A few years ago, a friend in fashion said, that she was “tired of Angie’s beauty”. Not me. Can’t think of anyone else who looks universally amazing, even in a black tee shirt and cargo pants! Yes, Jodie = “classy”.

    Angelina may not be today’s Audrey Hepburn, but she certainly does have a style and grace about her that harkens the glamorous days of Hollywood!

    I lament that actresses look ‘unfinished” – would it kill them to wear a stunning brooch, a ‘statement’ necklace or a pair of knock-out earrings?
