Get Ginnifer Goodwin’s peaches-and-cream look

Talk about dewy and glowing.


Of all the beauty looks sported State-side at the weekend, Ginnifer Goodwin’s soft, polished, peaches-and-cream make-up stood out a mile.

Is it the impeccable texture of the skin, the softly defined eyes or the peachy-golden glow holding the whole thing together that make her look so pretty? I don’t care – I just need to know how to do it myself. Right now.


Luckily, backstage make-up artist Georgina Graham was stuck at home with a cold yesterday so I cornered her for this step-by-step guide:

Step 1: The base

‘Ginnifer looks like she’s just stepped out of a facial and taking time to prep and plump your skin is the first step to achieving this look. Use a skin-plumping mask, such as Aveda Intensive Hydrating Mask [£24.47] and follow with a serum, moisturiser, eye cream and plenty of lip balm. I like Zelens Advanced Luminescence Serum [£85] under moisturiser for added radiance.

‘Next use a tinted moisturiser or a very sheer, light-reflecting foundation (I really like Chantecaille Future Skin Gel Foundation [£47.96]) and work the product in with your fingers for a natural, hydrated look.

‘Use an illuminating concealer – I love Guerlain’s version – under the eyes and out towards temples to brighten and open that area.’

Step 2: The eyes

‘One of the cornerstones of this look is the groomed brow – very Hollywood. Keep the look modern by using a brow pencil or shadow one shade lighter than your natural colour. This gives the brow definition but keeps it from looking too heavy – and this look is all about a soft take on old-style glamour.

‘Using a soft, round-tipped brush, do a colour wash using a pale gold shadow or cream. Place the product on the lid then blend it right up to the brow bone – it should get sheerer, the higher you go. MAC Eye Shadow in Nylon [£9.79] is a pale, frosty gold that’s an almost exact shade for the one you can see here.

‘Use a black eyeliner pen to draw a thin line along your upper lashes and slightly beyond the natural eye shape. Use one hand to hold your temple and pull your eye in to a more feline shape and the other to follow the line you’ve created with your pen. Once the liner’s dry, take a Q-tip and smudge it down just a little so it looks softer. Finish by using a bronze eyeliner to create a soft line under your lower lashes. Estée Lauder and Shu Uemura both do good ones.’

Step 3: The lashes

‘One thing that brings this classic look up-to-date is that the lashes aren’t loaded. Curl yours with a heated curler [use a hairdryer] so they look polished, then wiggle your mascara at the base of your lashes so you get definition without too much product.’

Step 4: The lips

‘This peachy-gold take on the nude lip calls for just the right shade – try MAC lipstick [£11.26 each] in Freckletone, a lustrous peach shot with gold. Or Plink!, a yellowed seashell pink and use your finger to pat the colour over well-prepped [think loads of balm] lips.’

Step 5: The Cheeks

‘To get that lovely, hydrated glow and pull the look together, use your lipstick as a blush. Dab a little, little on with your fingers, blend it in well and go again with a very light layer until you get the desired intensity.’

Now that’s just peachy.
