Saoirse Ronan's Barely There Golden Globes Makeup Was Flawless
Pretty in pink in the most subtle way possible.
Celebrity makeup artist Mai Quynh took her cues from Saoirse Ronan’s goddess-like Saint Laurent gown when it came to her makeup scheme for the 2016 Golden Globes. “It was so delicate and feminine, I wanted to keep the makeup soft and pretty. I wanted to accent her features with light pinks and gorgeous skin,” says Quynh.
With her piercing blue eyes the focus of any look — "the first thing you see on her," says the makeup artist — Ronan barely needs cosmetics at all. Avoiding anything that felt overly done-up, Quynh instead focused on flawless skin and pale pinks that mimicked the actress's nail color. Chanel La Solution 10 de Chanel Sensitive Skin Cream ($80), a light application of foundation and Chanel Powder Blush in Rose Ecrin ($45) on the apples of her cheeks created the perfect palette.
As for the barely there makeup, the beauty guru — who also works with Chloe Grace Moretz and Aubrey Plaza — swiped the shimmery white Chanel Illusion d’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Fantasme ($36) all over Ronan's lids and rimmed her eyes in a super-thin line of Chanel’s liquid eyeliner, with tiny flicks at the outer edge. Lastly, Quynh chose Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo Complete Care Lipshine in Conte ($37) for Ronan's flushed pink lips.
