Pati Dubroff created Natalie Portman’s flirty ’50s look for last night’s Golden Globe Awards. Here, the beauty breakdown, in her words.
“Natalie’s dress has a classic ’50s feel that is very ‘Jackie’. For this look, we did a nod to this era while keeping it super feminine and optimistic; the makeup was focused around a strong brow and warm dewy skin, while the eyes were kept more defined. Her lips were given a bright dose of color with a fresh and flirty sheen.
To prep Natalie’s gorgeous skin, I used Capture Totale Dreamskin Advanced around the perimeter of her face to catch a glow on the height of her cheekbones. Next, I primed with the Forever & Ever Wear Primer at the center of her face to help her Forever Foundation stay put. I then dusted with a bit of Forever & Ever Control Loose Powder, and went back over using a fluffy brush to warm her skin with Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Powder on the perimeter of her face.
To keep the strong focus on Natalie’s brows, I used two different tones in the Diorshow All-in-Brow 3D Long-Wear Brow Kit, to build color and give good definition. For her eyelids, I applied a soft brown shade to her creases from the Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in Ambre Nuit, then some of the Diorshow Fusion Mono in Millenium to the centers of her lids. This effect gave off a khaki-gold gleam to play up the colors in Natalie’s chartreuse dress.
Finishing up with the eyes, I lined her top lashes with Diorshow Pro Liner in Pro Brown and applied a couple coats of Diorshow Mascara. Her bottom lashes and lash lines were kept completely clean.
For Natalie’s lips, I used Rouge Dior Lipstick in Opéra to create a stain then lined using Rouge Dior Lipliner in New World Matte. This combination of color made a beautiful, custom pink with a touch of coral. Finally, I added some shine using Dior Addict Lipstick in Ultra Dior.”
