As much as we er, live to see celebrities on the red carpet, there’s something much more intimate and special about seeing how their glam is born behind the scenes. On Sunday, April 25, Los Angeles-based makeup artist Georgie Eisdell shared a clip bringing Promising Young Woman star Carey Mulligan’s makeup to life ahead of the 93rd annual awards ceremony.
Before applying makeup, though, the beauty pro prepped the star’s skin with the CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Mask, which, as the expert puts it, “smooths, calms, and firms.” The artist snapped a photo of the device, raving about it in the accompanying caption. “I cannot live without out it.” she wrote. “I made sure we got a little 15-minute relaxation and skin love this morning with Carey before we started glam.”
Next came glam, courtesy of the one and only Chanel Beauty. “A little bts of us getting Carey ready,” the beauty pro captioned the photo. “Thank you to my friends at @chanel.beauty for making it so easy for me.” In the video, Eisdell applies blends Chanel eyeshadow into the outer corner of her lower lash line, while celebrity hairstylist Jenny Cho curled the actress’s hair to prep for a sleek updo.
In a second photo posted by Eisdell, Mulligan’s hair is nearly done, pulled back into an updo. The makeup artist paints the star’s lips in a gorgeous plum color while giving her 56.2k followers a look at the Oscars nominee’s nearly finished natural glam, which paired perfectly with her two-piece gold sequined Valentino gown teamed with Cartier jewels.
