Hair stylist Laini Reeves, for Moroccanoil, created Emily Blunt’s hair look for the 2013 Golden Globes. Her inspiration: “Emily’s dress was so amazing and sexy that I wanted to create a minimal look that showed off her beautiful features, with simple lines and an unstructured texture with lots of shine.”
To create the look, per Laini:
“I started by shampooing the hair with Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo and Moroccanoil Extra Volume Conditioner.
I applied new Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse to give light volume and shine, and for a flexible, natural-looking hold.
Next, I added a small amount of Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream from roots to ends, then flipped her hair over and rough dried it upside down. I used my fingers to separate and define strands for texture as they dried.
I brought Emily’s hair into a high ponytail, still using my fingers to keep the texture messy, and secured it on the crown with a hair band.
I held the ponytail out and sprayed it from base to ends with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium.
Twisting the hair around my fingers, I made a loose bun held around its base with bobby pins. It was important not to make it too large or too tiny, but the right size to suit Emily’s bone structure and profile. Once it was in place, I tweaked and pulled at the bun to create the right texture.
To finish, I sprayed my comb with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium and used it to smooth the hairline.”
In a gilded dress by Michael Kors, Emily Blunt more than lived up to her reputation as a Hollywood golden girl. The actress, nominated in the Best actress, Musical or Comedy category for Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, “definitely had something in mind as far as the look,” says makeup artist Jenn Streicher. “Emily wanted smoky eyes paired with soft pink lips that echoed her Lorraine Schwartz ruby earrings.”
Jenn began by using Kate Somerville Quench Hydrating Face Serum, La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream and La Mer Eye Concentrate. She then primed the skin with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, and followed with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in “Ivory”. She used two shades of Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer: “Fair”, a light shade, was used around the nose and as a highlighter, and “Sand”, a slightly darker shade, was applied under the eyes. Jenn completed the skin by applying the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in “Radiant Light” all over the complexion. Available in six different lighting settings, Ambient delivers a multi-dimensional luminescence to the complexion by capturing, diffusing and softening surrounding light. “It softens and enhances everything,” says Jenn.
Jenn applied Hourglass Superficial Waterproof Bronzer all over the face and neck to create a radiant glow. She then used the bronzer shade from Hourglass Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in “Sunset” to contour the cheeks and jaw line. The blush shade from Illume was applied onto the cheekbones.
She started by lining eyes with Hourglass Film Noir Kohl Eye Pencil in “Espresso” and softened the line with a brush. Jenn then applied the shell shimmer shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in “Gypsy” as a highlight on the brow bone and followed with a matte brown eye shadow on the lid. Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara was applied to the lashes to volumize, lengthen and separate them. She then amplified the brows with Hourglass Arch Sculpting Brow Pencil in “Soft Brunette”.
Lips were infused with a beautiful wash of color courtesy of Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in “Edition”, a soft pink shimmer.
