Love Claire Danes' Golden Globes look? We got the lowdown from her makeup artist, Matin Maulawizada.

Claire Danes' makeup at the Golden GlobesHomeland star Claire Danes made a splash at the 2013 Golden Globes — her first outing since having son Cyrus in December.

Matin Maulawizada, Global Artistry Director for Laura Mercier, created the new mom's makeup look for the night — and it had to be fab to complement her Versace gown.


Danes' dramatic dress required equally as dramatic eye makeup, according to Maulawizada.

"I decided to go with a smoky eye and not a red lip since the dress was so red," he said.

He used Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Liner in Black ($22) on Danes’ top lids and under her eyes "to create depth and shape."

Next, he applied Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Black Ebony ($22) with Laura Mercier Flat Eye Liner Brush ($25) to "deepen the lash line." He then used Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil in Black Gold ($20) on the inner rim of the eye to "intensify the depth and to create a contrast with Claire’s blue eyes."

He topped off the look with multiple coats of Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara ($24) to Claire’s long upper lashes.

Maulawizada went neutral on the lips to create a contour reminiscent of "an early ‘90s supermodel pout."

He first defined the lips using Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Hazelnut ($20), then he shaded and contoured with Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Praline ($20). Finally, he added Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Angelic ($26) to make the color a "bit more beige and quiet."


Maulawizada wanted Danes to have "glowy, warm skin." To do that, he applied Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact SPF 20 in Almond ($45) to warm up her skin tone and then added Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage #3 ($30) to "cover up little imperfections and darkness under the eyes, which she really doesn’t have."

On her cheeks, Maulawizada applied Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Blaze ($24) and added Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Palette ($48) to "highlight, bronze and make her even more glowy."

Finally, he used a combination of Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder in Translucent ($35) and Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder ($22) to set her look. He also added Laura Mercier Mineral Illuminating Powder in Candlelight ($32) over Laura Mercier Repair Eye Serum ($80) on Claire’s shoulders and arms.
