Looks We Love: Gina Rodriguez

One of our favorite Golden Globe Winners, Gina Rodriguez, presented at the 2015 Grammys and looked great doing it! We asked the her makeup artist, Carissa Ferreri, to spill her best tips. Oh and how you can recreate Gina’s look.


Carissa was inspired by Gina’s disco-like white dress and luscious waves, creating a natural look with a major focus on the eyes. She used a mix of gold shadows and created a defined brow, making that Gina’s focal point of her makeup look. This time around, Carissa started with the eyes and worked her way to full-face makeup last.


STEP 1: Prep skin with L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur ($24.99) to moisturize and prime.

Tip: Carissa used L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur Instant Eye Smoother ($24.99) to remove

Gina’s dark circles

STEP 2: Apply a mix of shadows starting with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24HR Eye Shadow in

Amber Rush ($7.95) on the lid and Eternal Sunshine on the inner and outer corner. To add

depth and definition, use L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad in Emerald Conquest

($9.99) on the crease and L’Oréal Paris Infallible Smokissime in Black ($9.99) on the lash line.


Tip: Carissa slightly wet the shadow to add a more pigmented and rich color

STEP 3:  To complete the eyes, apply L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Intenza Mascara

($8.99) on the upper and lower lashes. On the lower lash line apply L’Oréal Paris Silkissime

Eyeliner in Highlighter ($8.99)

STEP 4: To create a full natural brow, lightly stroke the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Designer

($7.99) and comb the hairs upward with the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Plumper in Medium to

Dark ($8.99) give them a fuller defined look.

STEP 5: As the last step, apply L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation in Caramel

Beige ($12.99). Lightly dab the L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Blush ($12.99) on the apple of your

cheeks. Remove face shine with L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Powder ($16.99).

STEP 6: For the natural lip, use L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Lipcolor in Permanent Blush


STEP 7: Finally, set makeup with L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender

Setting Spray ($16.99), which creates a “just applied” look that’ll last all day.
