Charlize Theron Makeup - Celebrity Get the Look

With her luminous skin and vibrant eyes, it's no surprise that Oscar-nominated Charlize Theron is a natural athlete and loves the outdoors. Even on the red carpet, this award-winning South African-born actress is a natural beauty. At the Golden Globe awards, her lightly bronzed skin was the cornerstone of her look -- she used only the barest hint of color. To get a similarly "natural" golden glow, follow this advice from New York makeup artist Carlo Longo.

Step 1 Begin by cleaning and moisturizing your skin. Using a clean, damp makeup sponge, lightly apply a sheer liquid foundation to face and neckline where needed.

Step 2 Pour a dime-sized portion of a gold- or bronze-tone liquid shimmer lotion into your palm, and apply a very sheer layer of the product to face and neck with your fingertips.

Step 3 Add a flush of color to the cheeks with a liquid blush. (It's more dewy than powder.) To apply liquid blush, dot the product onto the apples of the cheek and across the cheekbones, blending in toward the hairline using your fingertips.

Step 3 Since this look uses no eye color, it's more important than ever to have well-groomed brows and precisely placed eyeliner. Using a liquid liner (to achieve the sharpest line), line the eye just above the upper lash. Curl eyelashes using a quality eyelash curler. Apply a coat of black or brown mascara depending on your coloring.

Step 4 Keep the lips ultra-natural, and simply apply lip-gloss to bare lips. Want more lip color? Apply a liquid lip stain before the gloss.
