Get the Look: Stacy Keibler at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards.

 

Stacy Keibler stepped onto the red carpet of the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards on the arm of beau and Golden Globe nominee George Clooney showcasing a timelessly elegant look created by Makeup Artist Marina Gravani for NYX Cosmetics and KeSARI Beauty skincare. Marina complemented Stacy's stunning red Valentino gown with a neutral, effortless look to reveal her natural beauty.

 
For Face:
Stacy’s skin was prepped the night before with the KeSARI Pore Minimizing Indian Clay Masque ($29.50/kesaribeauty.com). The day of the show, prior to applying makeup, Marina applied KeSARI Dark Circle Brightening Cream ($37.90/kesaribeauty.com) to the under eye area to reduce puffiness and impart a subtle glow.
 

Next, Marina created a base using NYX Cosmetics’ HD Studio Photogenic Primer and HD Studio Photogenic Foundation in Sand Beige. She then used the NYX Cosmetics Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation in Soft Beige to attain a matte finish.  The NYX Cosmetics Highlight & Contour Powder was then applied to define and highlight Stacy’s cheekbones.  To set the Highlight & Contour Powder and maintain a matte finish, Marina used the NYX Cosmetics Powder Blush in Dusty Rose over the apples of her cheeks.
 
For Eyes:
Marina applied the NYX Cosmetics’ HD Studio Photoge

nic Concealer Wand in Beige to the under eye area to even Stacy’s skin tone.  She then dotted the NYX Cosmetics Collection Noir Liquid Black Liner between Stacy’s lashes to make them appear thicker.  Marina applied a thin line of the NYX Cosmetics Liquid Black Liner to Stacy’s top lid and then mixed the Liquid Black Liner with the NYX Cosmetics Powder Brown Liner for the lower lash. Marina then used the shimmery light beige eye shadow from the NYX Cosmetics Butt “Naked” Eyes Palette on Stacy’s lids and the brown eye shadow from the palette in the crease. She finished the look with three coats of the NYX Cosmetics Le Chick Flick waterproof mascara from the Boudoir Mascara Collection.
 
For Lips:
Marina created a nude lip to keep Stacy’s look as effortless as possible.  She used a neutral lip liner and followed with the NYX Cosmetics Xtreme Lip Cream in Natural – the perfect finish to Stacy’s gorgeous feminine look.

Hair:

Celebrity hairdresser and Aloxxi Artistic Team Member, Marco Pelusi, colored her locks prior to the big night with Aloxxi. Her Color Personality? Blonde Bambino!

 “From head to toe, Stacy looked elegant and beautiful last night.  Prior to the evening we added dimension and softness to her color to create this soft, buttery hue.  Her Blonde Bambino Aloxxi locks reflect the classic beauty she truly is,” says Pelusi.

Get the Look: Madonna at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards.

 

Madonna swas tyled by Andy LeCompte, Wella Professionals Celebrity Stylist. Her flowing, loose waves looked gorgeous on her at this evenings Golden Globe Awards.

According to Andy, “Madonna wanted easy natural texture hair.”

To start, I rough dried her hair manipulating and emphasizing her natural texture.  Next I applied a mist of Wella’s Thermal Image Heat Protection Spray to protect the hair from thermal heat as well as give the hair a slight bit of texture.  I spray this before I use my FHI platform 1 inch flat iron to make soft S formations, giving the hair a natural wave texture.  Then finish with a mist of Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray.  One of Andy’s fave product, he says “I love Wella’s Ocean Spritz to break up the texture.”

Get the Look: Tina Fey at the 2012 Golden Globes.

 

Tina Fey looked stunning at tonight's Golden Globe Awards. Yes, her stunning dress in purple was a winner, but her skin deserved the real award. She was glowing.

Celebrity Makeup Artist Gita Bass created Tina's stunning look tonight, using Votre Vu makeup and skincare.
 
"We were inspired by Tina's Oscar de la Renta dress, which was a gorgeous purple shade, so we decided to create a rich, sexy but low-key look that wouldn't compete with the gown." said Gita.

Gita started by prepping the face with skin-soothing Votre Vu Tragic Magic Rescue Creme. "It calms the complexion making it the perfect canvas for makeup" she said.  She then patted on Votre Vu Tout le Monde Antioxidant Eye Gelée under the eyes and brow bone. "It decreases puffiness instantly which helps since Tina doesn't get much sleep with a new baby at home!"
 
Next, she applied Votre Vu Sensational Eyes Eye Primer in Medium on lids for a flawless eye makeup base. To create a well-defined brow, Gita used the "amazing" Votre Vu Wonder Brow in Eva which helped to emphasize Tina's natural arch.
 
Then, she smoothed on Votre Vu Champagne Kisses Lip Enhancing Balm to hydrate and prevent lipstick from bleeding and feathering. To set the look and create a silky finish, Gita dusted on Votre Vu Mineral Powder in Light all over the face.
 
Gita finished by applying the deliciously scented  Votre Vu Tarte D'Amande Body Creme to décolletage, arms and legs for a gorgeous, well moisturized sheen.
