Issa Rae pretty much always looks on-point, but her Golden Globes look? 100.

Her makeup was especially amazing and her makeup artist Joanna Simkin recently broke down the look. Spoiler: they obviously used a bunch of Covergirl products since Issa is officially the newest ambassador for the brand. Check out the rest of the products used.


Step 1: Jade roll your skin to boost circulation

Step 2: Moisturize! Moisturize! Moisturize!

Step 3: Foundation: For this event, Joanna went with CoverGirl Vitalist Foundation in the shade Soft Sable.

Step 5: Smokey eye time! Joanna used CoverGirl TruNaked Smoky Palette in the outer corners of the eyes

Step 6: Blend!


Step 7: Go metallic! Joanna used CoverGirl Melting Pouts Metallic in Unplugged to bring the look together.

Final look? Perfection

Issa Rae also used her Golden Globes appearance to support Time’s Up by wearing black. After the event, she told Vogue,

“The most powerful thing to me was seeing so many women come together for a cause and so many men come on board in support of it. This really felt like a night demonstrating the power of our voices.”

Issa ended up wearing Prabal Gurung, who has been a fierce supporter of women’s rights.
