Get the Look: Jessica Chastain at the 2012 Golden Globes.

 

Jessica Chastain won the Golden Globe for best actress in the movie 'Zero Dark Thirty' in a beautiful sea foam gown, sleek hair and gorgeous makeup. Her makeup was done by Makeup Artist Kristofer Buckle with mostly L'Oreal Paris products.

Jessica's Chastain Golden Globes look was “classic Hollywood meets new Hollywood.” Kristofer’s inspiration for her beauty look was “water color as opposed to painting,” so he created washes of color instead of strong lines and shapes. Jessica wanted her lips to off-set the softness of her dress, so they decided on a deep berry stain for a bold pop of color.
 
STEP-BY-STEP:

STEP 1: Kristofer gave Jessica’s complexion uniform texture with L’Oréal Paris’ new Revitalift Miracle Blur ($24.99) before using a foundation brush to lightly apply YSL’s Le Teint Touche Éclat in B10 ($55). Understanding that the red carpet is all about skin, Kristofer also used Revitalift Miracle Blur on Jessica’s décolletage, shoulders and back to create a creamy, “perfect skin” look.

STEP 2: To address any little imperfections and highlight around the eyes, Kristofer reached for the cult-favorite YSL Touche Éclat ($40).

STEP 3: He then dusted the caramel shade found in L’Oréal Paris’ Colour Caresse Eye Shadow Quad in What Happens in Vegas ($7.95) onto Jessica’s lids and used the bronze shade toward the outer corners of the eyelids.  He also used a bit of the bronze shade under her eyes to open them up.

STEP 4: On Jessica’s lashes, Kristofer applied three coats the L’Oréal Paris Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara ($9.95). He used the waterproof version (“a must during awards season, especially for a nominee”) and only applied it on the top lashes to ensure her eyes looked lifted. In place of a liquid liner, he used the mascara to create a winged eye look that’s fresh and modern.

STEP 5: Jessica felt there should be an expressions of ruby in her makeup, so Kristofer swiped the L’Oréal Paris Colour Caresse Shine Stain in Berry Persistent ($9.99) onto her lips.

Get the Look: Jessica Chastain at the 2011 MET Ball.

Jessica Chastain attended the the Met Ball in New York City last night. She had her makeup look done by Celebrity Makeup Artist Jake Bailey.

Jessica wore a tight sexy black dress by Pucci, which I couldn't envision with anything else but the always-chic smoky eye and nude lip.

I started with a tiny bit of moisturizer called "skin food" by Weleda. I then buffed a light coat of COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation all over her face to add a bit of perfecting polish to Jessica's already beautiful skin. 

I then lined the entire inner rim of her eyes with COVERGIRL LiquilineBlast in Black Fire and worked it into the top and bottom lash lines for extra definition. This liner has a super soft blendable texture, which I smudged upward, outward and downward using a soft cone tipped eyeshadow brush to achieve the smoky effect. I then set the smoky liner with a little bit of Guerlains's les violettes loose powder. I applied individual lashes and coated them with COVERGIRL LashBlast Fusion Mascara...a rich black formula that added tons of volume as well as length. I only needed one coat.

I then warmed up her complexion by applying a cream bronzer to the apples of her cheeks and hairline.

I gave her a light dusting of the same Guerlain powder and accentuated her cheekbones using a highlighter from Kevyn Aucoin.

I finished the look with a tawny coral nude lip color, COVERGIRL LipPerfection lipcolor in Delish.
