Get the look: Claire Danes’ Golden Globes makeup

Love Claire DanesGolden 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.
