Golden Globes Glamour: Vera Farmiga

One of my favorite looks from this year's Golden Globes was the sexy Old Hollywood meets ethereal naturalist combo, New York based celebrity makeup artist, Tina Turnbow, created for Up In the Air star and best supporting actress nominee, Vera Farmiga.

Turnbow worked with tarte (and is coming out with her own line of products for the eco-friendly brand) to create a soft, feminine look that combined warm and cool tones inspired by nature. The star looked luminous on the red carpet thanks to her healthy flush. She somehow managed to look poised, sophisticated and not over done or "caked on" with makeup. The star looked so effortlessly natural, she could have just come from the gym, had it not been for her haute couture dress.

Turnbow told me about how she created the star's impossibly glamorous all natural Ava Gardner look:

  • Complexion: “I love Vera’s porcelain complexion, so I wanted to keep it simple with a sheer foundation and lightweight mineral powder.”
    • tarte’s smooth operator tinted moisturizer SPF 20 in fa├žade
    • tarte’s provocateur mineral pressed powder SPF 8 in fair
  • Cheeks: “Just a pop of pink made for a healthy blush.”
    • Tina Turnbow for tarte’s flower child natural cheek stain
    • Tina Turnbow for tarte’s flower child eyeshadow palette—pink peony shadow used as a highlighter on top of cheekbones
  • Eyes: “I used warm coppery-bronze tones to enhance Vera’s beautiful blue eyes.”
    • Tina Turnbow for tarte’s flower child eyeshadow palette
      • Shadows: for her crease and lid blende shimmering firewheel, matte buttercup, shimminering ecru hibiscus; pink peony on browbone
      • Eyeliner: matte brown liner
    • multiplEYE™ natural lash enhancing mascara
  • Lips: “I felt a soft, pale-pink pout really completed her look.”
    • tarte’s vitamin infused lipstick in bikram
