Award season is pretty much here, and although I never tend to watch them I always pay particular attention to my Instagram and Twitter feed to spot the looks that I like the most. Of course, it wouldn't be a major event without one of the Kardashian-Jenner clan stealing the show with their gorgeous attire and makeup. This time, at the Golden Globes, I thought Kylie's entire look was fabulous. Her makeup was done by the incredibly talented makeupbyariel and her sparkly two piece was one of the best outfits I have ever seen. Serious princess vibes.
Now for her makeup, Ariel kindly shared some details on his Instagram page. I thought I would share some dupes as well as the actual products in case you were on a budget and looking to recreate this look.
For foundation she used Hello Flawless by Benefit (£26.50), this is one of my favourite foundations as they are so good for olive/tan/Indian skin tones. They leave a flawless finish without looking heavy. A great alternative would be the L'Oreal Infallible Matte foundation (£7.65), another foundation I have been trying out recently and it is beautiful (full review coming soon).
For concealer, Ariel used Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (£22) in Honey. There are many similar concealers available at a more affordable price, for instance the Maybelline Fit Me (£6) concealers and the LA Girl Pro concealers (£6).
EYES + BROWS
Brows are always ABH, aren't they? For Kylie it was Brow Wiz (£15.50) in Medium Brown. A more affordable option would be Soap & Glory Archery Pencil (£10).
Now onto my favourite part: the eye makeup. This stunning smoky brown look was achieved using the Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad in Cognac Sable, which is pictured below and retails for a whopping £64. I have scoured endlessly for dupes and all I could find was the Revlon Colour Stay Eyeshadow Palette in Coffee Bean which was recommended by the stunning Huda Beauty. After looking at pictures, I don't think Coffee Bean is comparable. I believe you could achieve a similar look, not identical, with either the first Naked Palette (£34) or the Lorac Pro Palette.
For lashes, I know she's a fan of the Lily Ghalichi lashes.
Some luxurious products were used for Kylie's cheeks including the Tom Ford Bronzer (£48) in 'Gold Dust'. Tom Ford products are so unbelievably beautiful and expensive it makes me a little crazy. Refined Golden by MAC (£22) is similar.
For blush, Charlotte Tilbury's Love is a Drug Cheek to Chic Blush (£30) was used. This is one of those "swirl and pop" blushes. I reckon you could recreate this colour with any of the blush palettes from Elf Cosmetics (£7), BH Cosmetics (£9) and even Makeup Revolution (£6). Obviously, the quality and blendability won't be as good but you should still be able to achieve a similar effect.
For her nude lip, her own lip liner from the Kylie Lip Kit was used in the shade Dolce K with Charlotte Tilbury's Nude Kate (£23) on top to complete the look. A dupe for the lip liner is the NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Mauve (£5). For the lipstick, Maybelline's Colour Sensational Lipstick in Tantalising Taupe (£7) is very similar and much cheaper.

Don't forget to set your makeup with your favourite setting powder, Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder (£19.50) is a cult beauty favourite.
To achieve that sleek bun, straighten your hair and apply some argan oil, or your favourite hair oil or serum to keep your hair looking glossy and commercial perfect. Comb your hair into a high pony tail first and then twirl the tail into a bun, leaving an inch of hair free use that to wrap and disguise the bobble. Use brow gel to tame any fly-away strands and use hairspray to lock that style into place.
