Wowzers Beauty & Fashion, #GoldenGlobe Style

Kerry Washington Lancome Wowzers Beauty & Fashion, #GoldenGlobe StyleWe’re kind of obsessed with Kerry Washington. Just kind of. Everything she wears is phenomenal, but what about her beauty routine? Her skin is always flawless, her hair always in place, and her make up always complements her outfits perfectly. At Sunday’s Golden Globes, held at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, Washington wore a beautiful Miu Miu sheer dress. Sequins up and down the dress accented the nude colored ensemble. She accessorized with nude pumps, a nude minaudière, and a diamond bracelet and ring. John Freida star hairstylist Marcus Francis styled her textured hair straight and sleek using Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Styling Spray ($9.99, drugstores) and Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Crème ($5.99, drugstores). Want the look? Comb the Styling Spray through wet hair, blow dry straight, flat iron section by section, and finish with the finishing crème. Voila! And did we mention her new subtle blond highlights? We’re obsessed and totally digging the dimension.

Her makeup artist for the event, Carola Gonzalez, wanted to complement Kerry’s look with a bold eye and muted lip. Here’s how she achieved the look:

Face: Gonzalez used Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24H Foundation in Suede N 450 ($44, Sephora) all over her face. This foundation stays put for 24 hours (no need for touchups—a must on the red carpet), and has a velvety smooth finish. She highlighted her cheeks with Lancôme Blush in Pommettes D’Amour ($49, Nordstrom).

Eyes: Gonzalez added a splash of color to Washington’s eyes with Lancôme Color Design Infinité 24H Eye Shadow in Evermore Lilac ($24.50, Macy’s). She then added dimension with Lancôme Color Design Eye Shadow in Mochaccino ($19, Sephora). Lastly, she accented with Lancôme Artliner in Smoke ($30, Sephora) and Lancôme Hypnôse Star Mascara ($28, Sephora).

Lips: Gonzalez finished the look with a muted lip, using Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in 500 Blush ($32, Barney’s New York).
Nina Dobrev Unite Wowzers Beauty & Fashion, #GoldenGlobe StyleNina Dobrev looked sweet and feminine at the InStyle Golden Globe Party, dazzling onlookers in Oscar de la Renta, Oroton and Jimmy Choo. Her tea-length light blue gown, from the designers Spring 2013 runway, featured flower cutouts and was absolutely gorgeous. And talk about arm candy–she carried beautiful Oroton Satin Zip Top Clutch in Caribbean Waters. And what better way to complement the 24-year-old Vampire Diaries actress’ look than with a classic bun—with a modern twist, that is. Dobrev’s hairstylist, Riawna Capri, used UNITE Hair Care products to create the look, which she described as, “Sweet and polished with a unique twist.” Nina is a classic brunette, with luscious and long locks that she usually wears cascading down her shoulders in curls. It’s so refreshing to see her hair pulled up in such a chic new take on a classic ‘do. Here’s how to achieve the look yourself:

To start, Capri washed Dobrev’s hair using U LUXURY shampoo and conditioner, which are both infused with crushed pearl, Hawaiian white honey and Argan oil. To detangle and protect, she used UNITE 7SECONDS Conditioner. Next, to smooth the hair she blew it dry with the UNITE 9-Row Denman Brush. Then, with her head flipped over, Capri braided Nina’s hair from the nape of her neck to the crown of her head. The rest of the hair was pulled up into a classic ponytail. UNITE BEACH DAY Spray was spritzed through the ponytail for texture, and Capri then styled it into a chic bun. The final touch was UNITE GO356 Hairspray for hold and UNITE SHINA-Mist for shine.

We’re absolutely in love with the hair! It’s so reminiscent of Carrie Bradshaw’s take on the classic bun, which she rocked all the time, but with a modern and young twist. And the best part is you can totally do this look at home. You might want to enlist the help of a friend for the braid, but the rest is a piece of cake.
Julie Bowen Colorescience Wowzers Beauty & Fashion, #GoldenGlobe StyleJulie Bowen looked smoking hot on the red carpet. The beautiful blond always seems to get it right when it comes to both fashion and beauty. You’ll never see her tresses looking brassy—Bowen seems to have found the key to finding the perfect balance between an ashy and brilliant blond that never looks orange or dull. The Modern Family star walked the red carpet in a beautiful one shoulder turquoise Halston gown. She complemented it with a dark clutch and shoes, as well as drop earring and layers of bangles. Talk about an arm party.

Her makeup was effortlessly flawless. Makeup artist to the stars, Heather Currie, gave Bowen a bronzed collection and a dramatic smoky eye using products from Colorescience. Want to achieve the look? Here’s how:

Currie started off using Colorescience Skin Bronzing Face Primer SPF 20 to add a bronzed glow to Bowen’s skin. She then applied Colorescience Sheer Crème Foundation, finishing her face with a pressed mineral powder to set the foundation. A shimmer bronzer was applied to the cheek bones and pink powder blush was dusted on the apples of her cheeks. To create the smoky eye, Currie blended Colorescience Loose Mineral Eye Colore in Black Matte and Smoke Matte to Bowen’s eyelid, starting at the lashline and smudging upwards with a flat eye shadow brush. Next, she used Colorescience Loose Mineral Eye Colore in Silver Shimmer blended with a teal to fill in the lid. She then accented the brow bone and inner corner of the eye with a white shimmer shadow. The finishing touch for the eyes was undereye concealer, Colorescience Mascara, and a blend of silver and teal shadows along the bottom of the eye. To keep the focus on the eyes, Currie applied nude lip liner all over Bowen’s lips, followed by pink gloss.

The end result? Ravishing. You go, Julie Bowen, you sexy mama.
