Among the few celebrities whose red carpet moves we have historically tracked closely for beauty inspiration, Carey Mulligan ranks fairly high. Besides being remarkably easy on the eyes, the actress has mastered the fine art of elegance with a twist, both in her dress and beauty choices, when she hits the red carpet. For the latter, Mulligan has Aussie-born makeup artist Georgie Eisdell to thank. Eisdell, who kicked off her makeup career in Sydney while still a teenager, quickly climbed the beauty ranks, becoming an editorial darling and favorite among a coterie of style-savvy celebrities including Mulligan, Dianna Agron (with Eisdell, left), Diane Kruger, Christina Hendricks, and Saoirse Ronan. With Gatsby just hitting theaters, the past two weeks have seen Mulligan pounding the red carpet circuit hard. “My favorite looks for Carey vary,” shares Eisdell. “Her skin is incredible so I always love to enhance that and give her an extra glow. She is quite a chameleon so it makes it very easy for me; everything suits her.” Eisdell’s go-to red carpet products for Mulligan? “Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels; I use them on all my clients because they cool, de-puff, and tone the skin,” she says. “I love my Dior Skinflash Radiance Booster Pen, too. I use it under the eyes to brighten the area and it’s so fine that it doesn’t cake. Lastly I can’t do without my La Mer The Powder; it sets makeup and is kind of my secret weapon to glowing skin.” Here, Eisdell shares some of the beauty bets she reserves for her own big nights out—and the daily grind in between.
The Balm Par Excellence: Lucas’ Papaw Ointment
“This is from Australia and is literally the best lip balm on the planet. There is nothing that heals chapped lips better. It is also amazing for bites, burns, and it’s great to put on dry elbows. The other thing I love to use this product for is when you are breaking in new shoes: Rub a little on the inside of the shoe where it rubs, and you find yourself blister free with perfectly broken in shoes from day one.”

The One and Only Moisturizer: Crème de la Mer Soft Cream
“I cannot live without this moisturizer. It is perfect for every season; I feel like it injects moisture into my skin instantly. It feels light, yet gives so much hydration. It’s the perfect base for makeup!”

The Desert Island Beauty Product: Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Medium
“If there was only one product I could have, this would be it. This bronzer is so light on the face; it doesn’t have a powdery finish so it can be used over powder, or on clean skin. The color is perfect! It’s so natural and never makes people look over-tanned or orange. It adds the perfect amount of sun-kissed color to the face.”

The Cleansing Necessity: Clarisonic
“This is the only way to wash your face fully. Other than it being a really chic looking appliance, it cleans the skin so well without being too harsh. It removes significantly more dirt, loosens impurities from your pores, and it leaves you so smooth and glowing.”

Whether or not you want to believe that Dianna Agron is done with Glee (the has-she-or-hasn’t-she-left-the-show chatter was quashed when Quinn Fabray made her triumphant return in this season’s eighth episode over Thanksgiving), the blonde starlet has certainly moved on from her humble beginnings when the hit series first aired. A bona fide style star these days, Agron had a front-row seat at the Spring Miu Miu show in Paris and was given an equally hot ticket to the premiere of HBO’s In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye screening at the Met last night. Sporting one of Tomas Maier’s coveted Spring Bottega Veneta dresses, Agron was also showing off a newly sheared honey-gold fringe, which played nicely with her heavily bronzed complexion. Look out for her on the big screen alongside Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer in next year’s Malavita—and in what we’re sure will be plenty of magazine spreads to come. Thoughts on her too-good-for-TV makeover?
Back in May, Glee star Dianna Agron chopped off her trademark cheerleader-long locks, posting a video of the cut on her Tumblr site. Last week, she proved just how versatile a short bob can be, styling it three distinct ways for press appearances promoting Glee: The 3D Concert Movie. On The Late Show with David Letterman, left, Agron paired soft waves with a ruby pout for a romantic effect. Her slicked-back hair and heavy eye makeup for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, right, in contrast, turned out a bit harsh. At the Los Angeles premiere, though, Agron got the edgy equation right, wearing rocker-cute, tousled tresses with a shimmery liner and glossy lip. Which style worked best for you?
