Quinta Brunson looked every inch the award winner on Tuesday night—which, as it turns out, was the appropriate approach. Brunson and her glam team joined at her Los Angeles home ahead of the 2023 Golden Globes, the better to create a beauty look worthy of the red carpet—and her custom Christian Siriano gown.
“The dress was very editorial, so we wanted to keep the makeup soft and pretty,” says makeup artist Renée Loiz, who used Bounce Skin Tint in Deep 1 followed by Bounce Deep Bronze Highlighter, the latter touched to cheekbones, lids, and all over Brunson’s body for a silky finish (and a camera-ready glow). Swirls of Blissful Berry Blush provided a warmth that matched the frills of pink tulle, with softly smoked lids playing up the dress’s gothic romance. A slicked, center-parted low pony (the tail long and amply curled) kept the moment modern, as did Brunson’s slew of onstage texts and ever-refreshing candor.
