Katharine McPhee's Makeup Look from 2012 Golden Globes

Step by Step How-To
To create the base for her look, Lauren started with Cle de Peau Beaute Refining Fluid Foundation SPF 24. Next, she applied L’oréal Paris Magic Smooth Soufflé Blush in Celestial to the apples of Katharine’s cheeks for a soft, natural flush.

On the eyes, she swiped L’oréal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Iced Latte across the lids, blending it into the crease for a sultry, warm smoky eye. She also thinly lined eyes with L’oréal Paris Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner in Brown to deepen the look of lashes, which she coated with L’oréal Paris Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara.

For the lips, Lauren used Dior Rouge Contour Lip Liner in Linen and L’oréal Paris Infallible Gloss 8HR in Petal.

Lauren finished with a dusting of Yves Saint Laurent Poudre Sur Mesure – a semi loose powder in neutral to set the overall look.
