Makeup 101: NARS for Salma Hayek Golden Globes 2009

“Salma’s makeup look was directly inspired by her dress,” said NARS Makeup Artist Matthew Vanleeuwen. “She chose a very neutral colored dress and wanted to make sure her makeup look would pop. I made her eyes the focus and added a lot of rich, jewel skin tones and fresh color to her cheeks and lips. Her look was very classic and chic, with some modern textures.”

Below is Matthew’s step-by-step to recreate Salma’s look:

• Apply the China Blue Single Eyeshadow to top and bottom lash line [Matthew’s tip: “I love using navy colors because
they make the whites of the eyes pop.”]
• Next, use the Corfu Cream Eyeshadow as a base, all over eyelid
• Use the golden champagne side of the Alhambra Duo Eyeshadow on lid
• Then, use the Bengali Single Eyeshadow all along the lash line, rubbing it into the lash line, deepening the outer corner
of the eye, creating shading
• Curl the eyelashes and apply 2 coats of Black Orchid Mascara on lashes
• Go back over top lash line with the Night Clubbing Eyeshadow and use what is left on the brush under the eye to define
it [Matthew’s tip:“This shade is perfect to create a smokey eye – it gives a rich sparkle at the lash line with undertones of
green and gold.”]

• Use the Brightening Serum to make skin glow and apply the Makeup Primer
• Apply the Firming Foundation and set with the Loose Powder

• Use the Marnie Lipliner Pencil and Tutti Fruity Lipstick
• Next, mix the Boogie Nights and Greek Holiday Lipglosses and apply them over the lipstick
• Apply the Desire Blush to the apple of cheeks [Matthew’s tip: “I use a powder brush to apply blush. I find that a bigger
brush makes a much softer wash of color.”]
• Next, use the Laguna Bronzer with short, back and forth stokes from the back of cheekbone forward, to blend
