Lucy Liu, actress and star of the hit show Elementary, stepped onto the red carpet of the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards showcasing a soft and natural look created by Celebrity Makeup Artist Kristofer Buckle using NYX Cosmetics. Wearing a beautiful, structured floral dress by Carolina Herrera, Buckle wanted to keep her makeup look innocent and fresh. “I wanted to create a pristine and classic look without forgetting about the Hollywood glam factor of the Golden Globes!” said Buckle.
To ensure the durability of Lucy’s makeup, Buckle started the look with NYX HD Studio Photogenic Primer. He paired the primer with the NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation in Soft Beige for full coverage without weight to bring out Lucy’s beautiful skin and natural complexion. Buckle then touched up Lucy’s look with NYX Concealer Wand in Medium where needed and then set the foundation with NYX HD Studio Photogenic Finishing Powder.
To create the perfect red-carpet glow, Buckle did light contouring on the sides of Lucy’s cheekbones and down her nose with the NYX Matte Bronzer in Medium. For a touch of color, he applied NYX Powder Blush in Rose Garden on the apples of Lucy’s cheeks. Buckle then swept the NYX Illuminator in Chaotic high on her cheeks to maintain the soft and fresh look that would reflect perfectly off the bright lights of the cameras.
To amplify Lucy’s beautiful eyes, Buckle applied the new NYX Natural Shadow Palette in various shades of white, cream, and brown. He then swept the NYX Single Eye Shadow in Black on the outsides of her eyes to give them more dimension and definition. Buckle then added a few NYX Fabulous Lashes in Flare Lash Medium to create fullness and length, and then used the NYX Doll Eye Mascara heavily on her top lashes. To complete the look, Buckle filled in Lucy’s top lash line with NYX The Curve.
To not take away from the intensity of Lucy’s beautiful Carolina Herrera gown, Buckle finished her look with a soft pink lip color using NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in Candy Land.
