FEMALE Beauty Faves: Kirsten Dunst’s Simple Yet Glam Red Carpet Look At The Golden Globes

All eyes are always on the red carpet makeup when awards season comes around, and the first awards show of 2020 does not disappoint! Especially not Kirsten Dunst’s simple yet glam makeup look.

According to Kirsten’s makeup artist Mary Wiles, the aim was to keep the look red carpet enough – so still polished and glamorous – but not over done. The result is a stunningly clean and  pretty makeup look, with a red lip to complement Kirsten’s dreamy dusty pink lace dress from Rodarte.

“We wanted the beauty look to feel very modern and simple. More runway, not so red carpet,” Mary told Allure. “We wanted to look clean, beautiful, and classic, but modern at the the same time.”

If this is something you’d like to wear to your next special event, Mary has detailed her steps on Instagram so you can recreate it at home!

With such a simple look, the clarity and flawlessness of the complexion becomes even more important: Mary makes full use of the Dior Skincare Capture Total High Performance Serum, Cream, and Eye Cream to hydrate, nourish and smooth Kirsten’s skin– creating the perfect base.

And while the layers of skincare already does a good job of bringing out a natural glow, the Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation, applied over a layer of the Dior Backstage Face and Body Primer, creates an even more fresh radiant glow that’ll last all night. With the primer doing its work, Mary only needed loose powder to set the makeup only just where it needs to stay in place the most: under the eyes and on the T-zone only.

For a natural brow, use brow powder to fill and abrow pencil to add definition where needed. And for the eyes, she uses the 5 Coulour Palette in #167 Pink Vibration, blending the pink shades to match Kirsten’s dress and to softly contour the eye. And instead of relying on heavily-layered eyeshadow to add depth, Mary instead makes use of both liquid and pencil eyeliner along the lash line, smudged out and set with a matte brown eyeshadow for a soft smokey defined look. It’s a technique we’ve seen used by Korean makeup artists to naturally define eyes, and it sure looks beautiful on Kirsten!

To define eyes even further, curl lashes and apply two coats of your favourite mascara (Mary uses the Dior Show Pump And Volume Mascara), making sure to let the first coat before applying the next to avoid any clumps. . Keeping with the natural and simple theme, and then up the volume with individual false lashes just on the outer corners.

Mary keeps the rest of the complexion simple, with a light touch of contour under the cheek bones, and highlight the cheekbones and temples sparingly.

Finally, the focus of the look: the red lip! Mary starts with the Ink Lip liner #851 applied all over the lip as a base before applying the Rouge Dior Ultra Care Liquid #999 and blotting it for the perfect effortless red lip.
