GET THE LOOK: Funny lady and Golden Globes nominee Tina Fey was made up by celebrity makeup artist Ana Marie last night at the 67th Golden Globe Awards using Lancôme products. Here’s the scoop on Tina Fey’s makeup at the awards straight from Ana Marie. The inspiration, says Ana Marie, was Old Hollywood/1950’s with a twist.
The makeup tutorial on how to get Tina Fey’s makeup look by celebrity makeup artist Ana Marie for Lancôme:
Tina’s skin was prepped with Lancôme Secret de Vie Toner (Ana Marie’s favorite!) and moisturized with Bienfait Multi Vital, a combination that keeps the skin looking vibrant all day. Lancôme Absolue Foundation in Pearl evened out Tina’s complexion. Ana Marie applied it with a foundation brush and blended with a damp sponge to make the foundation more transparent.

The Look: “Julianna has such beautiful skin and a gorgeous beaming smile, that I wanted to keep the colors subdued and let her natural skintone shine through,” said Kristofer Buckle for NARS Cosmetics. “I didn’t want to use too much color because it might have taken away from her. I wanted it to be all about Julianna so I focused on highlighting her skin by encouraging shine and glow.”
Below is Kristofer’s makeup tutorial to recreate Julianna’s look:
· Using fingers apply Orgasm Illuminator (NEW for Spring 2010) down the center of the nose, across cheekbones, and on the apples of the cheeks
· Apply Firming Foundation all over face, mixing in with the Orgasm Illuminator
· Re-apply Orgasm Illuminator over the entire complexion to encourage shine [Kristofer’s tip: “I used the Flat Concealer Brush to apply the Orgasm Illuminator on top of the foundation creating high gleam.”]

Lana Horochowski, Department Head of Makeup for Mad Men, loves using NARS on the cast-members of Mad Men. “I love, love, LOVE the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils because they are long-lasting and give that perfect matte finish that is so authentic to the time period,” says Lana. “In the past, we used mostly cream cheek color because that was used in the period. Since powder blush was invented in 1963, we were finally able to throw it in for this season!”
Below are details on what Lana has used to create the looks for January Jones’ Betty Draper and Christina Hendricks’ Joan Harris.
Betty Draper, January Jones:
“January’s character Betty wears NARS Madrague Duo Eyeshadow in almost every scene when she is at home. “It’s a staple,” explains Lana, “but when she goes out, we spice it up with color.” To add emphasis to her eyes, Lana adds NARS Heart Of Glass Eyeshadow. For her lips, she uses NARS Calliope Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and NARS Belle de Jour Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. “I also love Barbarella Lipstick on January because it’s perfect for her every day look.” For blush, try NARS Penny Lane Cream Blush, NARS Gueule de Nuit Cream Blush, and NARS Gilda Powder Blush!

Giorgio Armani Beauty Celebrity Makeup Artist Tim Quinn has hand selected his favorite pieces from the collection that are essential to his highly coveted makeup kit. “There are a few products that I use on all of my celebrity clients – from Sophia Bush to January Jones – in order to achieve that flawless complexion. I always start with the Fluid Master Primer to create a smooth surface and follow with a foundation that is appropriate for both my client’s skin tone and complexion. I finish by applying Fluid Sheer liquid highlighter along the outer edge of the eye and along the tops of the cheek bones to create that perfect luminous glow. The one tool that I use with all three products and absolutely cannot live without is our Blender Brush – it’s my secret weapon!”
