Recreate Greta Gerwig’s Golden Globes Makeup

The celebrity makeup artist behind the “modern Hollywood” look spills her secrets

Last night, Greta Gerwig, writer and director of Lady Bird, took home the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy. The film won against Jordan Peele’s Get Out, James Franco’s The Disaster Artist, Michael Gracey’s The Greatest Showman, and Craig Gillespie’s I, Tonya. During her acceptance speech, Gerwig thanked her “beautiful cast,” including “the goddesses Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf.” She also gave a shout out to her hometown of Sacramento, California, the location that inspired the screenplay for Lady Bird, saying, “[Sacramento] gave me roots and wings and helped me to get to where I am today.”

We were touched by Gerwig’s passionate speech and also couldn’t help but notice her enviable smokey eye—a look created by celebrity makeup artist Jenn Streicher, inspired by “modern Hollywood,” exclusively for Charlotte Tilbury.

This combo complexion trick creates optimal glow levels, according to Streicher.

She then used the Hollywood Contour Wand in Light/Medium to sculpt and add subtle definition, followed by a dusting of the bestselling Charlotte Tilbury Bar of Gold along the tops of the cheekbones and in the corners of the eyes. Streicher finished Gerwig’s look with Airbrush Flawless Finish in 2 Medium and spritzed Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir to keep the face smudge-proof all night.

EYES

For a modern spin on the classic smokey eye, Streicher applied Charlotte Tilbury Rock ‘N’ Kohl Eyeliner in Bedroom Black to the top lash line for a smoked-up base.
