Hourglass At The Golden Globes

One’s an English beauty and the other’s a Californian bombshell, but Emily Blunt and Jessica Alba had at least one thing in common at the 70th Golden Globe Awards—they both wore makeup by Hourglass.

2013 Golden Globes

In a gilded dress by Michael Kors, Blunt more than lived up to her reputation as a Hollywood golden girl. The actress, nominated for Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, “definitely had something in mind as far as the look,” says makeup artist Jenn Streicher. “Emily wanted smoky eyes paired with soft pink lips that echoed her Lorraine Schwartz ruby earrings.” Meanwhile, Alba, a presenter at the awards ceremony, was resplendent in a coral gown by Oscar de la Renta. “The dress was the inspiration for the look,” says makeup artist Lauren Andersen. “I loved the contrast between her glowing skin and the matte orange lip. It’s an almost tropical pop of color that’s not an exact match for the dress but close.” Here are all the details on their looks by Hourglass:

Create Your Perfect Light

On a crisp day in New York last month, a flock of leading beauty editors arrived at a midtown Manhattan loft. They were there for a first-look at Hourglass’s new Ambient® Lighting Powder, to be officially launched in spring. Ambient® Lighting is a collection of ground-breaking finishing powders that emulate different lighting effects, from pink light to candlelight. Hosted by Hourglass CEO & Founder Carisa Janes, the launch event unfolded in a studio arrayed with artistic vignettes that evoked the six powders.

To bring the collection to life, we also tapped internationally renowned makeup artist, James Kaliardos, whose work has graced magazine covers from W to Vogue. An accomplished story-teller in his own work, James created numerous looks on models using the cutting-edge new powders. “I learned about makeup through the great photography masters—Irving Penn, Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, Steven Klein, and Mario Testino,” said James. “And light has always been the most important element to their work. It’s also what makes foundation and skin look wonderful or dull, defining or mask-like.”

After the presentation, the editors had the opportunity to get touch-ups with the powders. The verdict? “This is going to be huge,” said one. Stay tuned for the February unveiling.
