Carey Mulligan's Changing Looks
The then 22-year-old had her breakout role in The Seagull. "It doesn't look like she's wearing a stitch of makeup," says Gregory Arlt, a makeup artist who often works with Mulligan. "Just a stain of mascara and a soft cheek works for her youthful face."
Mulligan chopped her long longs-and jumpstarted her career.
The up-and-comer starred in An Education and went brunette. "It was a clean single process color," said colorist Laurie Foley of L'Atelier de Laurie in New York City. "I mixed a bronzey copper hue in with a sandy color, which gave the hair that much more shimmer and shine."
For the Golden Globes, Arlt gave the actress an unabashedly pretty look: "I wanted to really bring out the 'English rose' in Carey so I kept it soft and natural, playing with pinks and soft eye makeup." A jeweled headband dressed-up her simple pixie.
The Academy Award nominee went platinum for the big night. Said colorist Foley: "The icy blond really works with her skin tone."
For a special screening of Never Let Me Go, Mulligan paired her grown-out crop with lush lashes and smoky eyes.

"For the 15th Annual Hollywood Film Awards Gala I wanted Carey to stand out," said makeup artist Georgie Eisdell. "It had to be all eyes, eyebrows and perfect skin." She started by prepping Mulligan's creamy complexion with moisturizing foundation and blotting powder. "I used a creme shadow on the lids, blending it in softly. Then I used a hint of shimmer over the top and a little on the outer corner to catch the light."
For the London Critics' Circle Film Awards, Mulligan complemented her swept-back bob with lush lashes.
