Beauty School: Golden Globes Edition

Jessica Alba and Emily Blunt's Golden Globes makeup revealed

Lei Chic

There were so many memorable moments from Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards, you still can't stop talking about them.

Like every time Tina Fey and Amy Poehler took the stage (those two should host every awards show) or when President Clinton introduced a film about a fellow former president. And what about Jodie Fosters' enthusiastic yet befuddled acceptance speech or Tommy Lee Jones' unflinching disdain for... well, we're not sure what.

They almost made you forget about the dazzling looks that hit the red carpet. Almost.

We turned to Hourglass Cosmetics to uncover the secrets behind two of the hottest looks of the night: Jessica Alba and Emily Blunt. Below, you'll find the exact products used on both actresses and how you can recreate their looks at home.

You know, in case you too want to go Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.

Lei Chic Makeup Artist: Lauren Andersen
"The dress (by Oscar de la Renta) was the inspiration. I loved the contrast between her glowing skin and the matte orange lip. It's an almost tropical pop of color that's not an exact match for the dress, but close."

Skin: Prep skin with No. 28 Primer Serum and follow with Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Sand. Apply Hidden Corrective Concealer in Warm under eyes, down the bridge of the nose and center of the forehead to create dimension. Finish with Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light for a golden, subtle warmth.

Cheeks: Use the bronze shade from Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset to contour cheeks, then apply the blush shade on the apples.

Eyes: Line outer corners of the eyes with Film Noir Kohl Eye Pencil in Espresso, then smudge with a brush. Apply Superficial Waterproof Bronzer in the crease, then the gold shade from Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Dune on the lids. Coat lashes with Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara and shape brows with Arch Sculpting Brow Pencil in Soft Brunette.

Lips: Finish with Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Riviera ($28, right).

"Emily wanted smoky eyes paired with soft pink lips that echoed her Lorraine Schwartz ruby earrings."

Skin: Prep skin with Kate Somerville Quench Hydrating Face Serum, La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream and La Mer Eye Concentrate. Apply No. 28 Primer Serum and Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory. Use Hidden Corrective Concealer in Fair (a light shade) around the nose and as a highlighter, and Sand (a slightly darker shade) under the eyes. Finish with Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light ($45, available in March, below).

Cheeks: Apply Superficial Waterproof Bronzer all over the face and neck to create a radiant glow. Use the bronze shade from Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset to contour cheeks and jaw line, then apply the blush shade to the cheekbones.
