Vera Farmiga Makeup for the 2010 Golden Globes


I finally saw Up In The Air this week, and I completely understand what all the fuss is about. It was a  a dialogue driven and intelligent movie, that was filled with complexity.  My friends and I debate about this (seems people either love it or hate it), but I am sticking with my thumbs up.  Golden Globe nominee Vera Farmiga is an amazing character actress, and she looked elegant and ethereal on the red carpet.  Her look was ego friendly, and a modern take on the smokey eye.

Makeup artist Tina Turnbow, whose clients include   Amanda Peet and Claire Danes, created a look for Vera that was “Old Hollywood meets ethereal naturalist. Think feminine beauty with a healthy flush.”

SKIN:I love Vera’s porcelain complexion, so I wanted to keep it simple with a sheer foundation and lightweight mineral powder.

CHEEKS:Just a pop of pink made for a healthy blush.

EYES:I used warm coppery-bronze tones to enhance Vera’s beautiful blue eyes.

LIPS:I felt a sweet pink pout really complimented her look.

FINISH: Tina set the look with Arcona’s Lavender Hydrasol for a natural glow.
