Perfectly polished and not a hair out of place.
Even in the rain celebrities shined like only Hollywood stars can. They made us Ooh! and Ah! all night and reminded us of what awards shows are all about.
GLAMOUR, GLAMOUR, GLAMOUR! It’s the only way to sum up this years 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards.
Sandra Bullock, Drew Barrymore and super model Heidi Klum all looked radiant with a clean and polished look reminiscent of the fresh-faced starlets of the 50’s. Cheeks were glowy and bright but not overdone. Try So Sweet So Easy Crème Blend Blush by MAC Cosmetics to get the look.
Cameron Diaz and Meryl Streep were refined and elegant with the classic red lip that reminds of us what Hollywood royalty really is: Timeless! Try Estée Lauder ‘Ultimate Red’ Signature Lipstick or Hellbent by Kat Von D. For ultimate staying power and a defined line don’t forget to fill in lips first with pencils like Cherry by MAC or NARS in Jungle Red.
Sexy screen siren Halle Berry, House’s Olivia Wilde and diva Mariah Carey, were all show stoppers not only for their plunging necklines but for their sultry makeup as well. To achieve their smokey-eyed look first apply dark liner to inside rim and around both top and bottom lash lines and smudge. Then apply shadow to outer corner of lid and blend well.
Time saving tip: Apply eye makeup BEFORE foundation. If any eye shadow falls onto the skin it can easily be wiped away and you won’t have to apply foundation twice.
Soft flowing tresses on Christina Hendricks and the always-sexy Penelope Cruz reminded us of 40’s actress and model Veronica Lake. Use hot rollers and a soft hold hairspray like Phyto Phytolaque SOIE Soft Hold Hair Spray will help you get the look.
“Precious” star and Best Supporting Actress winner, Mo’nique wore a sleek chignon that is quite easy to achieve. With a little Baby Buttercrème from Miss Jessie’s– excellent for taming hairline edges- or Smooth Infusion™ Style-Prep Smoother™ and Light Elements™ Smoothing Fluid from Aveda smooth hair back into a ponytail and twist. If hair’s not long enough try HairDo from Ken Paves and Jessica Simpson. Just clip it on and go!
Trade secret: cover your hair tie or elastic by wrapping a section of the pony tail around it and securing with a couple of bobby pins.
Up-do’s were all over the red carpet last night. Kate Hudson, Marion Cotillard, and Mad Men’s January Jones all seemed to be channeling Golden Globe winner Audrey Hepburn as they arrived in simple and elegant styles resembling the innocence beauty of the great actress.
One commonality at the Globes was style and grace and even the gents didn’t disappoint us this year.
Tom Ford, Robert Downey Jr. and Taylor Lautner all arrived very polished and put together. Pomades like a Paul Mitchell Foaming Pomade or AMERICAN CREW Brilliante Pomade and a great cut from your favorite stylist will help to get these groomed styles.
Note: be sure to ask your barber or stylist to keep the facial hair tame. At home maintain your beard, mustache or goatee with ANTHONY SPORT FOR MEN Shave Cream or BURT’S BEES Mens Shave Cream.
