Get the Look: Amy Poehler at the 2014 Golden Globes.

“For Amy's triple duties at this year's Golden Globes (red carpet, host & nominee) I wanted to give her a vivid, sexy look that felt fresh, not overdone

I started prepping the skin by using Votre Vu Attentive Crème du Jour. It’s the perfect starting point for hydrated, firm skin.

Next, I used a Smashbox primer, which helps keep shine at bay and helps makeup hold up longer.

The foundation I used was Votre Vu Love Me Deux in Cannes. I wanted to give Amy's skin a lift of color. This sheer tinted moisturizer goes on seamlessly and is oh-so-natural looking. I dabbed the coordinating concealer on the inner eye near the tear duct to brighten and make the eyes pop. Next, I added a powder that was an ‘almost bronzer’ shade to give Amy's skin a warm glow.

For blush, I used Votre Vu Beaute En Bronze blush/bronzer duo. So as not to give Amy a too sweet/apple cheek look, I swept the deeper bronze shade in the hollow of the cheekbone and up toward temples. Just above it I swept the fleshy peach tone in the same direction.

I then applied a highlighter along the top of the cheekbone to catch light and add a dewy finish.

To makeup the eyes, I used Votre Vu Palette Play in Copper. I love this Votre Vu palette because it's super pigmented and can be used wet or dry. I used all fleshy/neutral tones on eyes and applied the shimmery bronze with a damp brush to (like the cheeks) catch light and give a dewy/cream shadow feel.

Eiffel Power Mascara was perfect for the red carpet since you definitely need something that's not only blackest black, but volumizes and gives ultimate length. My tip: curl the lashes before applying mascara and once more, just a quick pump, after the mascara has dried.

For the brows, I used Votre Vu's Arch De Triumphe in Fair. To give Amy's eyes the most open look possible, I brush this tinted soft wax behind brow hairs and slightly above, then brushed the hairs up for the fullest possible look.

For the lips, we kept it simple with a nude lip liner and clear gloss. I wanted Amy's lashes to be the darkest thing on her face, so we went with a soft and neutral lip. I filled in the entire lip with liner and applied a touch of gloss to the center to add moistness. “

Her hair was created by hair stylist Mara Roszak for L’Oréal Paris.

INSPIRATION: To complement the clean lines and classic silhouette of Amy’s stunning Stella McCartney dress, Mara wanted her hair to have a more polished, sleek feel.
 
STEP-BY-STEP:
STEP 1: Mara started by applying L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It High Lift Creation Spray ($4.99) to her roots

STEP 2: She blew dry the hair with a medium sized round brush

STEP 3: Then, she added waves to her hair with a 1 ½ inch barrel curling iron

STEP 4: Once the hair was set, she loosely brushed it out for a soft, loose-waved look

STEP 5: For extra shine, she sprayed L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Sleek It Strand Smoother Serum Spray ($4.99) all over Amy’s hair before finishing the look with L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Lock It Weather Control Hairspray ($4.99).
