Recreate the Look : Olivia Culpo Golden Globes Makeup

Olivia Culpo Golden Globes Makeup

Some of you may know Olivia Culpo as Miss Universe 2012 but I recently discovered Miss. Culpo because she totally slayed my whole world when I saw this picture of ¬†her on the red carpet at the Golden Globes ( yes I know, I’m being a bit dramatic!). I ‘m a sucker for rose gold and this beautiful lady was dripping in it! I¬†was inspired to recreate this Golden Globe look for the blog!

After a bit of research on Miss Universe 2012 , I was pleasantly surprised that we share the same ¬†“less is more” philosophy regarding makeup. This clearly shows in her makeup choices for red carpet and media events. For the Golden Globes, Olivia wore an intricate floral Zuhair Murad couture gown¬†with a¬†French braided¬†hairstyle.

She opted for a rose gold¬†/burgundy smokey eye and a brown lip. I loved the emphasis on her glowing skin and sharp brows. In this world of overly contoured and disco ball-esque faces all over social media, it’s refreshing to see more wearable, yet still beautiful, makeup on the red carpet. I appreciate that¬†Miss Olivia’s skin can still be seen through the foundation. Skin should look like skin and not plastic.

I digress!

Here are the products and steps  for the recreation of this look.

Look Cheat Sheet :


Start with applying Benefit Porefessional Primer to the face. Spray Pixi Glow Mist all over for extra glow and hydration. You can also use MAC Fix +. With a damp beauty blender or real techniques sponge apply foundation all over the face with a light hand, remember skin should look like skin.  I used Estée Lauder Make up foundation . It gives good coverage but is not considered a full coverage foundation.  Apply any highlighter of your choice to the cheekbones. My go-to for this look is the Make UP Forever Pro Fusion in Gold (my fave!). For extra glow apply NARS Orgasm illuminator to the high points of the cheekbones and  NARS Orgasm Blush to cheeks. I applied Maybelline Fit me concealer in medium to hide any discoloration underneath the eyes. To set the concealer I used Laura Mercier Translucent powder. To set makeup, spray Pixi Glow Mist or MAC Fix + to all other areas of the face.


Olivia has naturally thick brows. Not all of us are this lucky, so to sculpt the¬†brows I would recommend using Anastasia Beverly Hills pomade as it offers the best colour choices and long lasting formula. As my brows are naturally thick, I used the Pixi by Petra Rosy Radiance palette ( Brow Hues) to fill in any¬†sparse areas and to¬†deepen the colour to mimic Olivia’s brows.


To achieve this sultry rose gold and burgundy smokey eye I used an array of colours. Start with prepping¬† the lids with an¬†eye shadow primer such Soft Ochre by M.A.C. I took a flesh tone shadow, similar to mine,¬†from the¬†Morphe 350M palette¬†for the crease, then went in over the crease with a slightly darker flesh tone colour from the same palette. I¬†reached for the Master Palette by Mario and swiped Kim a bit lower in my crease. Take a clean blending brush and blend, blend blend!! I picked up Muse from Master Palette on a flat shader brush and applied it to the eyelid. In the outer corner apply¬†Violeta. With another¬†clean blending brush, you guessed it, blend the outer corner so all the shades look cohesive with one another. Pick up¬†Muse and Violeta on a dome brush and apply them under the lash line. I didn’t add any highlighter under the brow¬†as Olivia didn’t look like she had any on in the picture; less is more!


Olivia has naturally full lips but her makeup artists still emphasized them by lining the lips.¬†¬†I used M.A.C “Whirl” pencil¬†and ¬†M.A.C¬†“Whirl” lipstick to replicate the look.

I hope you enjoyed this post. If so, comment below and I will continue to recreate looks that inspire me !

    Cijeli zivot ucimo kako na vrijeme stici, i sve brze obavljamo svoje obaveze, na kraju zaboravimo da sitnice cine zivot i da u njima najmanje uzivamo zbog svog tempa zivota.Jedna od takvih sitnica je i sama SETNJA koju ljudi sve manje i manje praktikuju, misleci da je u danasnje vrijeme super i moderno sjesti u auto i odvesti se npr. tik do obliznje trgovine po neku sitnicu,ne razmisljaci pri tom da bi mu bas ta setnja mogla popraviti dan i raspolozenje,izuzev ako nije prometno na tom dijelu i sl…
