Makeup how to: Penélope Cruz at the Golden Globes, 2018

I was away in Wanaka last week and used it as an excuse for a digital detox of sorts, so I’ve only just now taken the time to check out some of the looks from the 75th Golden Globe Awards. SO much black, and so much of it worn so well! It takes a great beauty look to pull off an all black ensemble and really stand out from the crowd, and the incredible Penélope Cruz, Lancôme Ambassadress and Golden Globes presenter, did just that.
Global Celebrity Makeup Artist, Charlotte Tilbury was the woman responsible for Cruz’s perfect glow, saying “Penélope was wearing a mesmerizing Mediterranean Dolce Vita-inspired fitted black dress by Ralph and Russo couture. I wanted to create her signature, hypnotising, bronze smoky eye with a fuller, wider nude-y pink lip.”
Thanks to Lancôme I got Tilbury’s full beauty report on the look, which can be recreated at home thus:
1. First, I like to multi-mask with a clay mask and a sheet mask. I then drench the skin with moisture massaging the Rénergie Day Cream using my angel wing technique and Tilbury-tapping in eye cream around the delicate eye area to ensure the makeup goes on like magic. 
2. Then I use La Base Pro as a glow primer before foundation as it soft focuses pores and lines, redirects day-light and camera light to more flattering angles of the face to give a dewy, youthful radiance and makes everyone’s skin look lit-from-within. 
3. On Penélope I created a foundation base using Teint Idole Ultra 24H Long Wear Foundation that minimized shine in the right places, mattified the T-zone and gave her cheeks a healthy, youth-boosted glow. 
4. I then lined the eyes with the Grandiôse Liner in Matte Noir to lift, creating Penélope's signature feline flick.  
5. I then used Color Design 5 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Bronze Amour to prime the eye with a champagne shade back and forth across the eyelid. I then used bronze shade, followed by the copper shade around the outer corner of the eyes. I finished off with the chocolate brown shade along the lash-line. (please note this product is not available in NZ).
6. I completed her eyes with lashings and lashings of the Grandiôse Mascara.
7. I lined the lips with an incredible iconic pillow-y lip liner, and then filled in the lips using L’Absolu Rogue Lipstick in Crème de Marron.
8. I swished and popped the golden-flecked Blush Subtil in Aplum onto her cheeks.
9. For a finishing touch, we added a spritz of Trésor Eau de Parfum before Penélope stepped onto the red carpet.
