The broadcast isn’t over, but we have the step-by-step on how to get Tina Fey’s Golden Globe look. You should try it tomorrow. Really, you should!
“We were inspired by Tina’s Oscar de la Renta dress, which was a gorgeous purple shade, so we decided to create a rich, sexy but low-key look that wouldn’t compete with the gown.” said Celebrity Makeup Artist Gita Bass, sponsored by Votre Vu, to create Tina’s beauty look.
Gita started by prepping the face with skin-soothing Votre Vu Tragic Magic Rescue Creme.
She then patted on Votre Vu Tout le Monde Antioxidant Eye Gelée under the eyes and brow bone. “It decreases puffiness instantly which helps since Tina doesn’t get much sleep with a new baby at home!”
Next, she applied Votre Vu Sensational Eyes Eye Primer in Medium on lids for a flawless eye makeup base. To create a well-defined brow, Gita used Votre Vu Wonder Brow in Eva to emphasize Tina’s natural arch.
Then, she smoothed on Votre Vu Champagne Kisses Lip Enhancing Balm to hydrate and prevent lipstick from bleeding and feathering. To set the look and create a silky finish, Gita dusted on Votre Vu Mineral Powder in Light all over the face.
Gita finished by applying the deliciously scented Votre Vu Tarte D’Amande Body Creme to décolletage, arms and legs for a gorgeous, well moisturized sheen.
