Brie Larson was a winner in more than one way at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards. She took home the award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama, but she also won our hearts with her shimmery makeup.

"For Brie's look, I was going for really natural, healthy, glowing beauty," Brie's makeup artist Rachel Goodwin told ELLE.com. "She was wearing the most amazing [Calvin Klein] gold dress, and I wanted her to radiate. I focused on radiant skin with a bronzy glow: elegant but not overdone."

Here's what we learned about recreating that golden look, as elaborated by Rachel.

Step 1: Skin prep
"Tonight, I used Chanel La Solution 10 de Chanel Sensitive Skin Cream. It's really simple and absorbs into skin quickly. Everything looks beautiful on top of it."

Step 2: Contour and highlight
"To warm up the complexion, I bronzed and slightly sculpted the cheeks with Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base. I added a hint of highlight under the eyes with Soleil Tan de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid."

Step 3: Lashes
"To accentuate Brie's lashes, I used a fine line of Écriture de Chanel Eyeliner Pen in Noir and applied Le Volume de Chanel Waterproof Mascara in Noir."

Step 4: The gold prize
"I added Illusion d'Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Convoitise so that when she looked down, you'd see just a peekaboo of gold shadow."

Step 5: Lips
"Rouge Coco Stylo Complete Care Lipshine in Script gave just a hint of pink."

All Brie needed to maintain her look was her lipstick and a compact for touch-ups, but what Rachel said was the key ingredient to her lit-from-within glow was the Soleil Tan de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid, which she also used on Brie's arms and décolleté. You'd better be taking notes, ladies.
