The Highlight

Electric Eyes Trending at the 2019 Golden Globes

January 7, 2019 Lindsey Schickner


Hollywood kicked off the 2019 Award Season circuit with a strong showing of statement shadow. Taking a cue from the Spring 2019 runways, several of our favorite starlets turned heads with washes of shadow in bold and sparkly hues. Paired with sleek strands and fresh-faced skin, the focus was all on the eyes!

Camilla Belle paired slicked-back, wet-looking strands with bright, neon green eyeshadow all over her lids and lower lash lines for an exotic, mermaid-inspired glam, created by makeup artist Hung Vanngo using Chanel Beauty’s Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in “306 Spendeur et Audace.” For a similar all-over wash of striking color, blonde beauty Lili Reinhart offset her simple low chignon and flawless skin with a sparkly red smoky eye, created by makeup artist Adam Breuchaud. And Lupita Nyong’o paired her red power pout with an equally fierce flutter, using electric blue Lashify lashes and matching statement liner, created by Nick Barose.

Expert Tip from our Director of Makeup, Kelli J Bartlett: When applying a statement shadow, the base is everything. A strong base will ensure the color is true and vibrant. My favorite is the NARS Tinted Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base.
