As the beautiful starlet shined on the red carpet in a gorgeous gold gown covered in four million hand-sewn Swarovski crystals and weighing over 40 pounds alone, courtesy of Carolina Herrera, Close's face glowed just as much courtesy of the Kai Pritchard.
For this particular look, the celebrity makeup artist prepped the Academy Award nominee's face with the Retrouvé Dynamic Nourishing Face Cream.
"Her skin is dry and it was like a moisture surge to her skin. It also has a little grab to it that helps the makeup adhere to the skin—perfect for tonight," Pritchard shared.
Then, he applied the Retrouvé Nutrient Face Serum all over the eye and t-zone area, which works to smooth any textural issues and create a flawless finish.
"For hair and makeup, Close let her hair and makeup team have free reign today. Glenn was totally relaxed. We listened to classical music. It was a peaceful, lovely experience for everyone. She looked great and felt great when she left to walk the red carpet," Pritchard added.
