How adorable is Reese Witherspoon!?!?! I’ve been obsessed since Legally Blonde and was thrilled when I heard about her Golden Globe and now Oscar nominations for Wild, a movie based on the best-selling memoir of Cheryl Strayed. Cheryl and Reese walked the red carpet together on Sunday night, and I’m sharing all the details on how Makeup Artist Molly Stern created Witherspoon’s gorgeous Golden Globes look.
To ensure Witherspoon’s complexion looked “clean and bright,” Stern started by applying new Laura Mercier Silk Crème Moisturizing Photo Edition Foundation in Cream Ivory to skin. Since Photo Edition Foundation isn’t launching until later this year, use Silk Crème Foundation instead.
Next, Stern lightly contoured Witherspoon’s cheeks using Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Abundance. She then added an intense flush to the apples with Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Blaze.
To give Reese defined but sultry eyes, Molly started with a base of Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Black Karat and then smudged Caviar Eye Colour in Gilded Gold on Witherspoon’s upper lids, “creating a brilliant sheen to compliment her sterling silver gown.” Next she added a bit of smoke, roughly lining the upper and lower lash lines with Laura Mercier Noir Crème Eye Liner. Lastly, Stern curled the star’s lashes and coated them twice with Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Supreme Mascara.
The look was completed with wine-stained lips (one of my favorites of the night!). Stern applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Merlot and then topped it off with gold gloss for a luminous sheen.
Just for fun, here’s one more snap of the fab duo and friends from the show – gorgeous!
