How to recreate Saoirse Ronan’s Golden Globes makeup look

Sunday night saw Hollywood’s biggest celebrities attend the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. Wearing an embellished silver gown by Gucci, Mary Queen of Scots star Saoirse Ronan looked a cut above the rest.

For her red carpet makeup look, Saoirse enlisted the help of Kara Yoshimoto Bua; a renowned celebrity makeup artist who has also worked with Rachel Weisz, Jessica Biel and Bryce Dallas Howard (to name but a few).

Taking to Instagram after the ceremony, Kara revealed the products she used to create the look, as well as the techniques she used to achieve it.

Kara said she was, “inspired by the simplicity of the Gucci gown, with its sheer beaded veil of crystalline, silvery stones.

“I glammed up Saoirse’s look by dressing up her eyes with silver shimmery smoke,” she added, “with bright, fire-red lips as an accessory to complement her blue eyes.”

The final result was porcelain-looking skin; stand-out, natural eyes; and a statement red lip.

Chanel Sublimage La Creme Yeux eye cream

€170 from Debenhams

Saoirse’s skin was prepped using a this luxurious Chanel eye cream and rose water. Kara said, “Blend [the rose water and cream] in your hands, then blend onto the face from around the eyes outwards, doing a gentle lymph massage to open and refresh the face.” The rose water helps to control oil on the skin, while the cream reduces dark circles and puffiness.

Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue Flawless Foundation

€50 from Brown Thomas

Once the skin was primed, Kara blended Chanel’s Flawless Foundation all over the face, beneath the jawline and down Saoirse’s neck. She then set the foundation using Chanel’s Natural Finish Pressed Powder in shade ‘Clair’ (€44 from Debenhams), before lightly contouring with Les Beiges No 40 (€50 from Brown Thomas).

 

Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow

Shade 308 CLAIR-OBSCUR, €53 from Boots

These four eyeshadows blend effortlessly to define naturally intense, smoky eyes. The formula, which is long-lasting, has a creamy texture for comfortable wear.

Chanel Long Lasting Eyeliner

In shade Mat Taupe, €25 from Arnotts

Kara added drama to Saoirse’s eyes by, “lining along the entire upper lash line, slightly extending out the almond shape of her eyes and blending the edges”.

 

 

Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara

€34 from Boots

To keep Saoirse’s eyes looking natural, Kara opted for brown mascara, rather than black. What’s more, brown complements the blue of her eyes, making them ‘pop’.

Defining Long Wear eyebrow pencil

In shade 806 Blonde Tendre, €37 from Brown Thomas

“I used a lighter tone to create more definition for her naturally full brows,” Kara said on Instagram. This pencil comes with an in-built spiral brush, making it easy to groom the brows and blend in colour.

 

 

 

Chanel Rouge Allure Liquid Powder

In shade 954 Radical, €36 from Brown Thomas

Kara says to apply this statement lipstick from the inside out towards the edge of the lip. As the vibrant shade has a powdery-matte finish, Kara used Boy de Chanel lip balm underneath to prevent the lips from drying out.
