Steal My Beauty Look: Florence Welch at the Grammy's

Even though our girl Florence Welch is going home sans a Grammy Award tonight, she definitely turned heads with her unique red carpet look. Twitter nearly crashed when images of Florence in her custom made Givenchy gown created by Riccardo Tischi hit screens during the E! pre-show with people commenting on everything from the stunning deep green color to the protruding studs decorating the dress!

And since no head-turning look is complete without the perfect make-up, we got all the details from celebrity make-up artist Lisa Aharon who used some of the hottest products from Laura Mercier on Florence this evening. Aharon received input from both the Italian fashion designer and the stunning red head when it came down to what make-up would work best with this dress. She said: "[Tischi] had visions of a dark brown toned lip with the dress. Florence wanted a sultry eye, so I tried to marry the two.”

So how can you re-create this look at home? Here is the breakdown of products and techniques used by Lisa on Florence for Grammy Night:

Laura Mercier products Aharon used on Florence Welch!

Aharon’s favorite part of the look was Welch’s “young, fresh and glowing skin.” 

• Aharon first cleansed the skin and prepped it for moisturizer with ReVive Tonique Preparatif ($52).

• She then applied ReVive Intensite Crème Lustre ($375) moisturizer to “combat dryness and provide radiance.” 

• ReVive Les Yeux Presse ($175) was applied under Welch’s eyes to hydrate the delicate eye area. Aharon chose the product “because it’s not too creamy under makeup.” 

• Aharon highlighted Welch’s flawless complexion by applying Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Foundation in Porcelain Ivory ($50) with a damp sponge. 

• She concealed minor skin imperfections using Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage ($30). 

• Aharon contoured Welch’s cheekbones using the NEW Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Bronze-02 ($36 – launching April 2013). She finished the look by applying Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Highlight-01 ($36 – launching April 2013) to the tops of the cheekbones. 

Aharon stated, “I didn’t use blush, so I wanted a little something extra on the face.”

According to Aharon, the “rich brown lip” was Welch’s favorite part of her makeup look. She stated that “Florence always loves a rich coppery and brown,” and the color was “an instant hit” with the singer. 

• Aharon created Welch’s deep lip color by first applying Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Color in Merlot ($26). 

• She then applied Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Coffee Bean ($20) “from the center of the lip outward, to avoid sharp lines and cool down the redness of the lip color.” 

According to Aharon, Welch “wanted a sultry eye.” Aharon “added a little golden metallic shadow to the inner corner of the eyes to mimic the shine” of Welch’s custom Givenchy gown. 

• Aharon first applied Laura Mercier Eye Canvas ($26) to the singer’s lids to create an even canvas and “hold the shadow all night long.” 

 • She then applied Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Café au Lait ($22) around the entire eye, and blended it outward. 

 • Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colour in Cedar ($22) was patted onto the center of the lid below the crease to “create dimension.” 

• Aharon next applied Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour in Gilded Moonlight to the inner corners of the eyes to “open them up and make them pop.” 

• She then lined Welch’s lash line with Laura Mercier Eye Pencil in Special Brown ($20), and applied Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara in Black ($24) to the singer’s lashes. According to Aharon, “We didn’t use false lashes. Using this mascara is more than enough!”
