Get The Look: Cate Blanchett’s 2014 Golden Globes Romantic Makeup Look

Cate Blanchett's 2014 Golden Globes Romantic Makeup LookCate Blanchett went with classic black with her Armani gown, though her makeup artist, Jeanine Lobell wanted to stay away from the classic red lip when it came to Cate’s pout.

“We didn’t want to do the expected red lip to go with her gorgeous Armani black gown,” says Jeanine. “So we went the softer route. No harsh lines. Instead, I blended colors for dimension.”
Jeanine made what was essentially custom lip color for Cate. She mixed Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick in Scarlatto and Boudoir. Her trick? She first applied Scarlatto (a raspberry rose) then applied Boudoir (a nude rose) directly over it.

Cate’s matte, even-toned look all began with prep work. Jeanine prepped Cate’s skin with the SK-II Facial Treatment Mask. Afterwards, she applied the Lancome Translucence Mattifying Silky Press Powder. She layered the Nars Highlighting Blush in Satellite of Love to highlight Cate’s cheekbones, giving her a beautiful flush.

Using the Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in Intuition, Jeanine blended the pinky-beige and goldy-beige shades together and dusted them from lid to lash line. She then used the Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Emervielle for a hint of colour to add dimension without the need for liner. Countless coats of Lancome Hypnose Waterproof Custome Volume mascara were used to really make Cate’s lashes pop.

To complete Cate’s look, Jeanine used the Nars Brow Shader and Brow Gel to create a defined, but not-too-harsh brow.

Nail Trend Spotting: 2014 Golden Globes Moody Darks

Nail Trend Spotting 2014 Golden Globes Moody Darks

Dark polishes made their appearance during the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. And with manicures getting more and more coverage (hello, mani cams), nails are becoming a trend all on their own.

Taylor Schilling donned Essie’s Berry Naughty, a beautiful oxblood shade. Celebrity manicurist, Beth Fricke, wanted a color that would look gorgeous against her dark, kelly-green gown.

Celebrity manicurist Christina Aviles decided on a deep red to stand out against Jessica Chastain’s dark dress. Essie’s Poor Li’l Rich Girl was the perfect shade to complement.

Michelle Saunders, celebrity manicurist for Kate Beckinsale, went with what she thought was a bold choice for the red carpet. “But she pulled it off flawlessly,” says Michelle. The colour?

Essie’s Licorice, which gave off the effect of patent leather–the perfect addition to her metallic gown.

Have you been sporting the dark nail trend? If not, you’ve still a few weeks left before lights and pastels start making their rounds for spring.

Get The Look Kate Beckinsale's 2014 Golden Globes Punk-Inspired Hair Do

Kate Beckinsale brought a gorgeous edge to the Golden Globes – not only in her metallic Zuhair Murad gown, but with her messy side chignon.

What inspired the hair look? “With her wholesome, English rose good looks, Kate can get away with quite a bit of edginess in her hairstyle, so we went with a punk-inspired diva look that’s a bit different from her usual soft flowing waves,” says Sascha Breuer, celebrity hair stylist.

Sascha started by spraying Moroccanoil Root Boost directly onto her damp roots, which quickly adds body, movement, and flexible hold. He used a skeleton brush at first while blow drying, but switched between the brush and his fingers to add texture and more volume. Once her hair was 100% dry, he separated the crown and clipped the top section away.

Focusing on the bottom section, he secured it into a low, side ponytail with an elastic, then coiled it into a bun. He made sure to keep the look imperfect and tugged a few strands out of the bun, causing some tendrils to fall out. He secured with bobby pins then moved back to the top section. Before doing anything, he backcombed the roots with the Moroccanoil Boar Bristle Teasing Brush for bigger volume and a naturally untidy texture. He then secured this section into the existing loose bun with more bobby pins.

Sascha completed Kate’s look with some shine and hold with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray. His finishing touch tip? Spritz some hairspray onto your fingertips and fuss over single strands to really define them.

Get The Look: Jessica Alba’s Luminous People’s Choice Awards Makeup

Jessica Alba People Choice Awards MakeupThough her white, form-fitting Jason Wu dress was definitely a stunner, Jessica Alba’s gorgeous, bright skin and subtle smoky eye was definitely swoon-worthy. The unpretentious look paired with sleek hair parted down the middle, Jessica’s look gives minimalistic a totally new meaning.

Makeup artist Monika Blunder was inspired by Jason Wu’s Spring 2014 runway show, which featured clean, understated makeup looks.

For Jessica’s look, Monika started with Lancome Teint Visionnaire, smoothing out the canvas for flawless skin. She then followed up with Naked Flushed by Urban Decay and created dimension along the cheekbones and outer perimeters of the face. Next was a dusting of Lancome Blush Subtil Palette in Menage A Trois Glow, a rosy mauve coupled with a pale pink highlighter for extra radiance.

For Jessica’s eyes, Monika kept the look neutral with Lancome Color Design Eye Brightening All-In-On 5 Shadow and Liner Palette in Taupe Crauze. She blended a bit of the soft peach all over the lids to really brighten the eyes and added a hint of glitter to amp up the glam factor. Jessica’s eyes were lined with the Lancome Artliner 24H Eyeliner in Black Diamond for definition.

Her lashes were then sculpted with generous coats of Lancome Definicils Mascara.

Monika finished off the look with a swipe of Lancome Rouge in Love Lipcolor in Fall in Rose, a dazzling pink to really make her lips pop.

The end factor? A beautiful, dewy face and immaculately defined eyes–the perfect compliment to the perfect dress!
