Hilary Swank was golden in more ways than one when she accepted her Golden Globe for best actress this year. Luminous in a coppery, shimmering, charmeuse dress, Hilary offset the look with a makeup palette that gave her a tawny, honeyed-amber glow. To find out how to get Hilary's gorgeous look, we asked iVillage makeup expert Deborah Grayson.
Step 1: Curl your lashes, holding for a count of 30 on each side. Next, using a long-pointed eyeliner brush, apply a golden-yellow shadow along the rim of the lower lash, blending it all the way to the edges.
Step 2: Next, apply a brick-sienna shadow with golden undertones to the upper eyelid, above the crease of the eye. Reapply color above the inner portion of your eyes close to the nose.
Step 3: Apply two coats of chocolate-brown mascara on the upper lashes, and carefully apply one light coat to the lower lashes.
Step 4: Create defined brows by applying a taupe-brown brow powder to your eyebrows. Use a shadow brush and a light touch. You want just enough to accentuate the arch.
Step 5: Apply an oil-free moisturizer all over your face before foundation. This will help diffuse the foundation for a smooth, even look. Once the lotion is absorbed, apply a sheer or medium foundation as needed.
Step 6: Hilary's satiny cheeks are key to this look, and can be achieved with a sheer, translucent gel blush in an apricot tone. Apply blush lightly with fingers to the apples of the cheeks, and blend upward over the cheekbones.
Step 7: Hilary's lustrous lips can be accomplished by applying neutral, peach-coral liner to the border of the lips, then filling in with a sheer, translucent, honey-toned gloss.
