To complement the bold color of Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s Monique L’huillier gown, makeup artist Jake Bailey gave the actress a blue smoky eye with rosy lips at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Learn how to rock the look and win the L’oréal Paris products used on Sarah Michelle after the jump!

Step-by-Step How To
To start, Jake used L’oréal Paris Extra-Intense Carbon Black Eyeliner to rim and define the top and bottom lash lines. Next, Jake blended two shades of L’oréal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Midnight Blue and Sultry Smoke – using his fingertip, Jake gently blended both shades and used them outward and upward to create a smokey effect. To accentuate Sarah Michelle’s lashes he coated them with L’oréal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara in Blackest Black.

He perfected her skin by buffing a dime size dollop L’oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Makeup in Caramel Beige over Sarah Michelle’s entire face and finished it with a dusting of Guerlain Mineral Powder in Les Violettes.

Jake used a powder bronzer from NARS in Laguna to warm her complexion and brightened her cheeks with a swirl of a shimmery coral blush called from Benefit in Coralista on the apples.

He lined Sarah Michelle’s lips and filled them in with a nude liner called from Urban Decay in wallflower. Jake finished the look by applying L’oréal Paris Infallible 8hr plumping gloss in Plumping Pink to add shine and dimension.

For her body he mixed equal parts AHAVA mineral body lotion and MAC strobe cream to add a healthy sheen to her shoulders arms and decolletage.
