Awards season brings out the best and worst dressed on the red carpet. However at the SAG Awards earlier this week, best in beauty definitely went to Swedish actress and SAG awards winner, Alicia Vikander.

Celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury, spilled the beans on the products she used to create this golden goddess look. Tilbury said she designed the modern, glowing makeup ‘to compliment [sic] Alicia’s mesmerising Louis Vuitton gown’ and focused the makeup on ‘a soft smokey eye using a duo of gorgeous golds.’


Prep skin with Magic Cream to the entire face, and the Magic Eye Cream to the eye area. Apply Wonderglow to create a flawless soft focus finish, which also acts as a base the Magic Foundation in 8 Dark.


To brighten and add luminosity apply the Mini Miracle Eye Wand in Shade 2 underneath the eyes, followed by lightly dusting Airbrush Flawless Finish in 2 Medium to mattify the skin.


To perfect and define the brows and frame the eyes, use Brow Lift in Cara D.


For the golden eye look, apply the Eyes to Mesmerise in Bette onto the lids and softly blended upwards. Also blend the colour underneath the waterline. Then apply the pop glitter shade from the Luxury Palette in The Vintage Vamp to the inner corners of the eyes and on the middle of the lids. To add definition and length, apply Rock ‘N’ Kohl in Barbarella Brown to the outer corners of the top lashline. To finish, apply lashings of Full Fat Lashes on top and bottom lashes.


Sweep the Filmstar Bronze & Glow in Light-Medium, with the Powder & Sculpt Brush to add a golden highlight and subtle contour. To highlight, brush the powder on the high points of the face, like cheekbones, down the centre of your nose, cupids bow and just above your eyebrow. To lightly contour and sculpt the face, aim to put most of the colour in the hollow of your cheekbone, and blend upwards.


For a fresh pink glow, apply the Beach Stick in Las Salinas with the Magic Complexion Brush across the cheekbones.


To complete the look, line the lips with the Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pillowtalk and follow with the Matte Revolution Lipstick in Bond Girl.
