Get The Look: Leslie Bibb at the 76th Golden Globe Awards
Firstly, I can tell you that I have been a huge fan of celebrity makeup artist Brigitte Reiss-Anderson for years. Secondly, I can tell you that I use Lashify products and absolutely love their look, durability and variety of lash options. Thirdly- can we talk about how gorgeous Leslie Bibb looked last night?!
Celebrity makeup artist Brigitte Reiss-Andersen created the skin and lash look for Leslie Bibb on the red carpet tonight at the 76th Golden Globe Awards using Mother Dirt and Lashify products.
“Leslie had chosen such a princessy, dreamy dress by Schiaparelli,” says makeup artist Brigitte Reiss-Andersen. “It’s busy—in a good way! —and I didn’t want the makeup to distract from it. So we did a classic makeup look where you don’t think about the makeup, you just think about the woman,” she says. The style: glowing skin, a doe eye with loads of lashes, and a neutral lip.
When Leslie arrived at the makeup table, she said that her skin was very dry. “I can fix that!” said Reiss-Andersen, who turned to probiotic-powered skincare line Mother Dirt. First she cleansed Leslie’s face with Mother Dirt Cleanser for Face and Body, then followed up with a few refreshing spritzes of the Mother Dirt AO+ Mist for Face and Body. Then Reiss-Andersen “slathered” Leslie’s skin in the Mother Dirt Moisturizer for Face and Body. “All women love a rich cream but worry that they’ll look like a grease ball,” says Reiss Anderson. “This one feels rich but soaks in beautifully. And Leslie could really tell that they there was a dramatic difference in how hydrated her skin felt.”
Next came a bit of concealer, liquid foundation applied with a wet blending sponge, and a cream, peach-colored blush for a “natural flush to the cheeks,” says Reiss-Andersen. But it’s the eyes that were the focus: Reiss-Andersen applied a cream, taupey-gold shadow on the lids, a bit of terracotta on the browbone for warmth, and a pencil liner on the outer corners to make the eyes look a little longer. “And then I went to town with the lashes!” she says.
Reiss-Andersen used the Lashify at-home lash extension system to create the doe-eyed look. “Lashify is like a wardrobe for your lashes,” she says. “It has everything you need.” She used the most natural, 10mm “A” Gossamers (clusters) for the inner corners of Leslie’s eyes, then moved on to the 10mm “B” Gossamers—“more curled and dramatic,” says Reiss-Andersen—for the rest of the lash line. Then she went back into with three, 14mm “B” Gossamers right at the center of each lash line to create the rounded, doe-eye effect. “Leslie was fascinated with whole process!” says Reiss-Andersen.
As jazz music played in the background, Reiss-Andersen finished the makeup with a peachy taupe lipstick with just a bit of gloss and a light dusting of translucent powder. “The room had a real bridal-party-getting-ready vibe to it,” says Reiss-Andersen. Except that the “groom”—Bibb’s longtime boyfriend, Golden Globe nominated actor Sam Rockwell—was there, too. “He was very cute and complimentary of Leslie,” says Reiss-Andersen. “And Leslie loved how she looked,” says Reiss-Andersen. “Because it’s so classic, it’s chic and a gives a woman a straighter spine.” Perfect for a long walk down the red carpet.
