Nicola Coughlan surprised fans with her “Bridgerton” inspired outfit at the Golden Globes 2021.

The Irish actress, whose claim to fame is her role as Penelope Featherington in the hit Netflix period drama series, appeared on a virtual red carpet donning a gorgeous pastel-yellow tulle gown by British designer Molly Goddard.

Goddard’s “Savannah” dress debuted in her spring/summer 2021 collection, featuring an empire-cut waistline that resembles Coughlan’s outfits in Bridgerton.

She then paired it with a black cropped cardigan by Ply-Knits while capping off the look with De Beers’ diamond jewelry.

Aside from her stunning ball gown, the 34-year-old actress opted for a trendier makeup courtesy of celebrity makeup artist Neil Young.

How to Achieve Nicola Coughlan’s Golden Globe Makeup

Over his Instagram, Young shared the products used for the actress’ modern neon makeup.

As we all know, the ’80s aesthetic is coming back in a full circle alongside the neon eye makeup trend.

Kryolan Aquacolor Liquid UV Color

The celebrity makeup artist, whose famous clients include Sharon Osbourne and supermodel Meghan Roche, revealed that he used Kryolan’s Aquacolor Liquid UV Color that only retails for $12 (£8.90).

“To create Nicola’s eye look, I started with Kryolan Aqua Colour paint in UV Pink (£8.90) as a base all over the lid from lash line to the crease of the eye, blending away any hard edges towards the brow bone. This is to give the eyeshadow more kick and intensity,” he mentioned as obtained by Glamor UK.

To make the eyeshadow last longer, he advised using an eye shadow primer or concealer to prep the lids.

Young topped it off with MAC Neon Pink Pigment to intensify the bold neon shade to create a dimension.

“I love MAC Neon Pink Pigment (£17.50) as it builds opacity quickly, but any bright pink shadow will create the same effect.”

In addition to this, the celebrity makeup artist recommends applying the product to the upper lids to make it look modern and instead of the ’80s neon makeup.

Givenchy Beauty Volume Disturbia Mascara

It has a smooth-gliding texture and buildable, clump-free formula that can last up to 24-hours. He applied it along the lash line to redefine the lashes.
