Golden Globes Glamour: Christina Hendricks

Mad Men's resident vixen, Christina Hendricks looked particularly voluptuous (to say the least) at this year's Golden Globes. While I'm not sure Joan Holloway (despite loving the attention) would approve of her overly revealing peachy-salmon Christian Siriano gown, no one can dispute how flawless her makeup was. She managed to perfect retro yet modern crimson lips, warm glowy skin and subtle eye makeup that allowed us to see what the former Sterling Cooper head secretary might look like with a 2010 update. Makeup Artist, Vanessa Scali, created the newlywed's look and said she went for "effortless and chic: sheer satin eyes, pink milk-maid cheeks and a siren mouth." In true Mad Men style, Scali created the perfect contrast between an "angelic innocent face with a sexy edge of a strong mouth". The beauty pro reveals what she did to make Hendrick's sizzle on the red carpet.

Skin Care
Shu Uemura Depsea Hydrability Moisturizing Cream "This cream seriously hydrates, yet disappears into the skin leaving the skin feeling fresh and smooth," said Scali.
Scali said, "Applied minimal foundation, because Christina has nearly flawless skin." Shu Uemura Nobara Cream Cover Stick Foundation in #974 was used.

Eye Shadow
"I used Shu Uemura Égérie Satin Radiant Stick in Highlight all over the eye (from lash line to brow) then swept it down to highlight the very peak of the cheekbones," said Scali.

Eye Liner
To define and elongate the lashline, Scali used Shu Uemura Drawing Pencils in ME Black 01. She also lined the inside rim of the eyes with Shu Uemura Eye Light Pencil White, to open up the eyes.
