Get the Look: Jessica Alba at the 2013 Golden Globes.

 

Jessica Alba was one of my favorite overall looks from the 2013 Golden Globes. Her colorful ODLR coral dress and even brighter coral lip looked amazing on her. Her makeup was created by Makeup Artist Lauren Andersen using Hourglass Cosmetics.

On Sunday’s red carpet Jessica Alba looked stunning in tangerine. The glamorous mother of two, a presenter at the awards ceremony, wore a gorgeous peach-colored gown by Oscar de la Renta. “The dress was the inspiration,” says makeup artist Lauren Andersen. “I loved the contrast between her glowing skin and the matte orange lip. It’s an almost tropical pop of color that’s not an exact match for the dress but close.”
 
Skin: Lauren prepped the skin with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, and followed with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Sand. She then used Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer in Warm under the eyes, down the bridge of the nose and fanned the product out in the center of the forehead to create dimension. She finished the skin step with the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light applied all over to create a golden, subtle warmth. “It’s a soft, refined shimmer that’s glowy,” says Lauren.
 
Cheeks: She used the bronze shade from Hourglass Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset to contour the cheeks and followed with the blush shade on the apples of the cheeks.
 
Eyes: Hourglass Film Noir Kohl Eye Pencil in Espresso was first applied to the outer corners of the eyes and then smudged it with a brush. Lauren then applied Hourglass Superficial Waterproof Bronzer in the crease of the eyes and the gold shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Dune on the lids. Lashes were treated to several coats of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara. She finished up by amplifying the brows with Hourglass Arch Sculpting Brow Pencil in Soft Brunette.
 
Lips: Finally, Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Riviera, a vibrant tangerine shade, was applied to the lips. The velvety matte color delivers richly pigmented and long-lasting coverage for up to 14 hours.

Get the Look:  “I used Cle de Peau Refining Fluid Foundation paired with Tom Ford Contour Palette to highlight and define the cheeks. Her eyes were lined with MAC Eyeliner in Powersurge, and her lashes were coated with Diorshow Blackout Mascara. The lip was deep and moody, NARS Lipstick in Fire Down Below.”

Renato Campora for Frederic Fekkai tended to the tresses of Jessica Alba for this years MET Ball.

THE INSPIRATION: Campora was inspired by the shimmery lines

THE LOOK: An edgy up-do with soft texture

 

HOW TO GET THE LOOK: On wet hair, Campora applied Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Volume™ Styling Whip throughout the head and blow-dried with a round brush. Using his fingers, he pulled the hair back securing at the crown of the head.  Then he rolled the hair  fastening with bobby pins. He then wrapped one piece of hair around the bottom of the rolled ponytail to add sophistication to the edgy style. Next, he embellished the hair by adding an accessory and left a few front pieces to maintain a soft texture.  He finished by spraying the hair with Fekkai Coiff™ Sheer Hold Hairspray for all night hold.
