Get the Look: Julie Bowen at the Golden Globes

When I watched the Golden Globes, I was struck by how pretty Julie Bowen looked. It turns out her makeup look was created using tarte products - one of my favorites lines! Celebrity makeup artist Heather Currie helped Julie prepare for the Golden Globe Awards, where she was a presenter.

This from Heather..."Think gorgeous and elegant, yet still modern. Julie has amazing bone structure and looks stunning with a smoky eye. When I saw her dress, I was reminded of a John Singer Sargent painting. I wanted to create a metallic eye that was in the same tone as her dress, which was a taupe-y gray with a hint of silver."

Here's how Heather created the Julie's smashing look.

"Julie has glowing skin; I only wanted to enhance her flawless complexion."
  • Prepped her skin with tarte's clean slate natural primer
  • Applied tarte's ReCreate anti-aging foundation with Wrinkle Rewind technology with SPF 15 in cool bisque #04
  • Applied tarte's dark circle defense natural under eye corrector in light-to-medium
  • Dabbed tarte's new smooth operator illuminating serum on cheekbones
"Keeping her look soft, I used a light peach with a touch of flush on her cheeks."
  • Swirl of tarte's NEW Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in blissful on the apple of her cheeks, with a touch of the tarte's new Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in flush (available only at Sephora)
"We really wanted Julie's look to focus on her gorgeous eyes. I created a metallic smoky eye based on her textured, taupe-y gray gown. I love layering shadows and using my fingers to smudge and blend the colors."
  • Prepped eyes with tarte's smooth operator Amazonian clay eyebase
  • Used a combination of shadows from tarte's NEW neutralEYES eye shadow palette tarte's femme naturale eye shadow palette, as well as tarte's emphaseyes aqua-gel eyeliner
"I love to layer eyeshadow with liner; I first used the darker brown shadows and smoked them at the lash line. I then applied the shimmery gray-silver on her lids (her dress had a hint of silver). I used the medium brown on the outer corner and upwards at the crease. I then re-lined the outer areas of her eyes."
  • Curled lashes with picture perfect lash curler
  • Coated lashes tarte's lights, camera, lashes! clinically-proven natural mascara
"To compliment her smoky eyes, I wanted Julie to have a sheer hint of rose on her lips."
  • Prepped lips with tarte's frxtion sugar exfoliator and lip balm duo
  • Used tarte's LipSurgence natural matte lip tint in hope
Finishing Touches
  • Dusted tarte's smooth operator Amazonian clay finishing powder under eyes and in T-zone area to prevent shine and ensure it lasted through the evening
  • Dusted provocateur pressed mineral powder in light

Julie Bowen did look pretty. Her makeup was the perfect counterpoint to the silver dress, sometimes hard for a blond to pull off.

I agree, Marley! Her makeup was exquisite, her dress was elegant...the only thing she could have improved was her hair style. Did you like it?
