It was a night of retro glamour as Golden Globe winners and presenters dazzled the audience with looks inspired by classic Hollywood of the 40s to the 80s. Amid the nude colored dresses and emerald green gowns were specatacular hairstyles and stunning makeup looks adorning the runway and stage of the 2011 awards show on Sunday, January 16.
“Jennifer Lopez’s look for the Golden Globes was very old Hollywood 70s glamour,” stated Mary Phillips, Jennfer’s makeup artist who used L’Oreal Paris products to create a radiant look. To get that glow, Mary applied L’Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Color Correcting Primer in Anti-Dull Skin all over Jennifer’s face, followed by L’Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Magic Smooth Souffle, a light weight foundation. With her sleek ponytail and red carpet dress by Zuhair Murad, Ms. Lopez looked quite the movie siren.
Nominated for Best Actress in The Kids Are All Right, Julianne Moore radiated confidence on the red carpet in her elegant one sleeved fuchsia dress from Lanvin. To match the ensemble Pati Dubroff, Clarins Celebrity Beauty Artist, chose to stay within the pink family creating contrasting hues on the eye lids and deep, rich blackberry on the lips. The berry stained lips were achieved without liner – Pati just dabbed on Clarins Rouge Prodige in Blackberry with her fingers.
Nicole Kidman, dressed in a sleek one shoulder column dress by Prada, turned to celebrity hairstylish David Babaii to create a do with a 70’s feel. David used Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment (a new product that will be available in March) to create a wavy but controlled look. David’s favorite method is to divide the hair into top, sides, and back sections and then blow dry with a medium round brush.
David Babaii was also responsible for Sandra Bullock’s 60’s inspired style, complete with new bangs that she paired with a draped and embellished Jenny Packham dress. To achieve the full bangs with textured ends, David once again used Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment prior to blow drying Sandra’s hair straight with a paddle brush. Before finishing the do with a flat iron, he re-applied the oil treatent to sectioned off hair for added shine.
Presenter Olivia Wilde was breathtaking in her glittery Marchesa dress and gold Christian Louboutin heels. For her makeup, she turned to NARS and celebrity makeup artist Spencer Barnes. “Olivia’s look was inspired by images she collected of what she refers to as ‘the French girl,’ “Spencer explained. “I wanted her skin to be fresh and clean with eyes that extended outward.” He achieved this visage with touches of rose gold and sheer pink-veiled lips to create a youthful coquette-ish look. For her standout eyes, Spencer used NARS Nouveau Monde Duo Eyeshadow (new for spring) and Hollywoodland Soft Touch Shadow Pencil (also new for spring).
And va-va-voom Christina Hendriks of Mad Men fame also turned to NARS for makeup to accompany her Romona Kaveza curve skimming, scarlet gown – with eye catching petal-like, shoulder ruffle. “I had this vision of a big, doe-eyed, lashy look from the late 70s and early 80s. To keep it modern, I kept the skin dewy with shimmering eyes and added a pop of matte texture on the lips,” said makeup artist Vanessa Scali. For Christina’s wide-eyed look, Vanessa used NARS Calanque Trio Eyeshadow (new for spring) and Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara.
Megan Fox, who as the face of Giorgio Armani, looked gorgous in a soft pink Giorgio Armani Prive gown with Swarovski crystal beading. She completed the look with a side swept classic do created by hairstylist Andy Lecompte with Phyto producs. To achieve this look, Lecompte started by applying Phyto Professional Intense Volume Mousse before blow drying. He set her hair using a 3/4-inch barrel curling iron and then pin curls. Once he released the pin curls, Andy brushed out her hair and gave the hair a deep side part for a sophisticated finish.
