Hailee Steinfeld: Golden Globes

Fiona Stiles1 Comment

Last week I had the terrific pleasure of doing Hailee Steinfeld, the 14 year old breakout star of True Grit, for the Golden Globe Awards.  She is such a fresh faced young beauty, and the challenge was how do you make a 14 year old look red carpet ready, while still having her look age appropriate.  She was wearing a beautiful, long ivory Prabal Gurung dress with a sporty racer back that is chic and youthful.  Not wanting to go too bridal I focused on gorgeous skin and gave the eyes the tiniest bit of drama.

After prepping the skin, I used a touch of the Chanel Vitalumiere foundation in "Clair" where she needed it, adding a little highlighter on the bridge of her nose and the tops of her cheekbones (I used an eyeshadow base called "Base Ombre a Paupiers" that has a pretty, luminous sheen, and when mixed with moisturizer it makes a lovely highlighter) then set the base with a dusting of loose powder, and added a little extra luminosity with the Poudre Douche in "Peche Tendre".  It gives a pretty, subtle glow to the face.  Finally, I used a light peach blush on her cheeks, a new color called "Espiegle", which gave her a soft fresh glow.

I kept the lips neutral, using a barely there nude so the focus would be on the eyes and the skin, which I wanted to keep young and fresh, all dew drops and roses.

For the eyes, I laid down a wash of pink with a silvery taupe on the lid, so the lid looked polished, and then used a deeper taupe along the upper and lower lash line for a little definition.  A thin line of black liquid liner that ended in a tiny kitten flick, and a coat of jet black mascara gave her eyes a finished look that was a little glamorous, but still right for a young beautiful starlet.
