“This look is not only chic, but sexy and effortless; perfect for anyone who wants to play as a goddess for the night,” says makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff who created Taraji’s look with L’Oreal Paris products.

There’s no question Taraji’s Golden Globes look was a total knockout. She hit the scene with a fresh modern look, that was everything glam and sophisticated. “To accentuate Taraji’s white Stella McCartney dress, we decided collectively (as we often do), to go for a clean and fresh look and have it paired with sultry eyes and lips,” says Ashunta Sheriff her makeup artist who created her look with L’Oreal Paris. “This look is not only chic, but sexy and effortless; perfect for anyone who wants to play as a goddess for the night.”

Get the Look:

First, Ashunta started with a clean and moisturized canvas and applied the Revitalift Miracle Blur as a primer for a smooth makeup application. Next, she applied True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation in C5.5 all over her face and neck. To follow, she gently applied True Match Concealer in Medium/Deep Neutral under brow bones, eyes and down the bridge of the nose to create a natural highlight effect To avoid an oily T-zone, Ashunta gently patted on True Match Powder in C6.

As a first step for the eyes, she applied Colour Riche Eyeshadow in Sunset Seine all over the lid and followed with Colour Riche Eyeshadow in Café Au Lait on the creases only. For a dramatic lash, she applied three coats of Voluminous Superstar Red Carpet Mascara on both the bottom and top lashes. “It's a two-step mascara that creates sexy full, thick lashes in the blackest of black shades,” she says.

Next she lined both the upper and lower lash lines (staying out of the watermark) using Infallible Black Velvet Liner. “This really outlines Taraji’s beautiful almond-shaped eyes and makes them stand out.” Once the eyes were all set, Ashunta moved on to cheeks, gently applying Visible Lift Blur Blush in Soft Pink using her fingers onto the apples of cheeks for a dewy and fresh result.

Finally, she outlined Taraji’s lips using Colour Riche Lip Liner and finished filling in with Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss in Bare Attraction. Her last and final “red carpet ready” step was to spritz Infallible Makeup Setting Spray for a long lasting finish.
