Lily Collins Won the Golden Globes Red Carpet—Here's How to Get Her Beauty Look
If you follow @byrdiebeauty on Snapchat, you can probably guess we're still recovering from last night's Golden Globes festivities. (Goop-approved hangover cures, anyone?) But when we weren't hamming it up on the red carpet or high-fiving the kids from Stranger Things (pinch me), we were also tallying the votes for your pick of the night's best beauty look—and we have a clear winner.
It turns out you loved Lily Collins's deep-red lip and braided updo as much as we did, and as promised, we're here to report exactly how to get the look yourself—down to the products her makeup artist used to prep the actress's porcelain complexion. Keep reading to find out how to get this romantic look at home!
The red eye shadow trend was out in full force last night, but Collins's rose-petal eyes were a swoon-worthy softer take on the look. The secret? Lip liner and blush, actually: Makeup artist Fiona Stiles used Lancôme's Le Lipstique ($38) in Natural Mauve as a creamy, "airy" base and dusted the brand's Blush Subtil ($75) in Aplum on top. She then blended a bit of Color Design Eyeshadow ($31) in Pink Pearls along the brow bone to complete the baby-pink finish. (And if you're wondering how Stiles played up Collins's signature arches, the makeup artist used her eponymous Micro-Precision Brow Pencil to give extra definition.)
As for the actress's creamy skin, Stiles prepped her complexion with Lancôme's Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate Serum ($97) before blending on a wash of the brand's Teint Idole Foundation ($57). After spot-concealing, Stiles brushed on some of the same blush she used for her eyes. She finished the look off with Lancôme's L'Absolu Rouge Lipstick ($52) in Souvenir.
To give this braided updo maximum impact, hairstylist Gregory Russell did everything he could to amp up the volume—starting with two golf ball–size dollops of John Frieda's Luxurious Volume Perfectly Full Mousse ($16). After brushing it all through, he blowdried Collins's hair and set the top "mohawk" section of her hair in Velcro rollers.
After Collins's hair cooled, Russell used a 1 1/4–inch curling iron throughout her hair, priming each section with hair spray before curling it. After spraying John Frieda's volumizing dry shampoo along the roots to add lift, he sectioned out a one-inch lock of hair along the perimeter of her crown and secured the rest on top of her head with an elastic, pinning the curls to create a large, messy bun. Finally, he fishtail-braided the remaining section of hair and pinned it back into the bun.
