Celebrity makeup artist Christophe Danchaud created Marion Cotillard’s look for the 2013 Golden Globes. His inspiration: “Her statement-making couture dress is so flashy and strong on its own that I had to customize a makeup look that felt especially natural and fresh.”
Christophe mixed maracuja miracle 12-hour foundation in “medium” with tarte’s BB tinted treatment primer in “light” to ensure a glowing complexion.
To bring extra light around the eyes, he used tarte’s maracuja creaseless concealer.
Then he dusted Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in “dollface” over the apples of her cheeks up into the cheekbones.
He finished by applying a tiny bit of Amazonian clay finishing powder to minimize shine and set her look for the red carpet.
Christophe started by sweeping “meow” from the “call of the wild” Amazonian clay 8-shadow collector’s palette all over her lids for a splash of gold. Then he smudged skinny smolderEYES Amazonian clay waterproof liner in “onyx” at the base of her lashes to create a jet-black lashline.
For a one-of-a-kind blue, he mixed two skinny smolderEYES Amazonian clay waterproof liners. He started by lining the top lashline with skinny smolderEYES Amazonian clay waterproof liner in “amazonite blue” and then topped it with skinny smolderEYES Amazonian clay waterproof liner in “slate”.
To finish, he swept multiple coats of lights, camera, lashes 4-in-1 mascara through her lashes.
For a natural-looking pout, he traced her lips with LipSurgence lip tint in “charmed” and then added a dab of maracuja divine shine lip gloss in “adored” for a hint of shine.
Can I just tell you how glad I am that it was 91degrees yesterday? It means that Spring is finally here and I shouldn’t have any more snow days. *(note that I said “shouldn’t” – you never know what you are going to get around here.) And Spring means lightening up on everything from clothes to makeup to fragrances.
I tend to wear a little heavier and warmer scent in the winter, but I can be very picky in what I wear. I can NOT stand something that is too musky in the Winter or too flowery or powdery in the Spring – I prefer a clean fresh smell. (Oh, this is where I remind you I don’t know too much about “topnotes”, “layers” or “drydown”. I just know what I like or don’t like and what it smells like to me.)
This year I found a new fragrance, from Banana Republic of all places. I have actually been familiar with the Men’s line of scents, but I didn’t pay much attention to the Ladies line – my loss till now. It’s called Rosewood and according to it’s description it has “top notes of bergamot champagne, white tea leaves, and white amber”. Got that? I just know that it’s not too light and floral, and the amber still gives it some warmth to the scent.
The only thing that I love/hate about it is that the bottle is short and round and comes in a gorg wooden case, that I actually still store it in. Well, BR has just made things much better for me – they have come out with Mini’s – 7.5mL minature bottles of the bestsellers of their “Discover” fragrances – “Alabaster”, “Malachite” and my “Rosewood” for the ladies, and “Slate”, “Black Walnut” (yum!) and “Cordovan” for the men. Now, I can just throw a little bottle in my purse and freshen up when ever I want to, instead of only spraying as I am heading out the door. They are priced at 1 for $10 and 2 for $15, but are limited edition’s and only in stores, so hurry over to the mall and pick up one (or two) quick.
