Get the Look: Zooey Deschanel at the 2012 Golden Globes.

 

High-fashion and high-glam go hand in hand at the Golden Globes, as indie darling Zooey Deschanel proves in her stunning red carpet look, created by celebrity makeup artist Jorjee Douglass. With Rimmel London’s long-wearing, richly-pigmented formulas, you can look flawless while you strike a pose, just like Zooey.

Zooey just stepped onto the red carpet with a luminous, effortlessly chic look. Jorjee reveals how you can get the look at home, using Rimmel London’s makeup must-haves.

“Zooey is one of my favorite clients because she loves to have fun with her makeup, hair and fashion,” says Jorjee. “We brought out the big guns tonight for a stunning red carpet look unlike any other.”
 
“I was inspired by Emma Peel from the 1960’s British TV show The Avengers,” says Jorjee. “I wanted Zooey’s beautiful skin to glow so I started with Rimmel London’s Fix & Perfect Pro Primer which is a must-do step to hydrate and mattify the skin.”

Next, Jorjee used Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation in Ivory for smooth coverage that will last. She then used Rimmel London Match Perfection Concealer in Light and Fair under the eyes and to cover any imperfections.

“I kept the mod inspiration on the eyes, creating a cat eye shape. I used Rimmel London’s Glam’Eyes Professional Liquid Liner on the top of the lid and a feathered line on the bottom. I topped the liner with RimmelLondon Glam’Eyes HD Quad Eyeshadow in Black Cab and English Rose for  a soft smokey eye. Then I loaded up her lashes with Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Mascara to make her long lashes even longer.”
 
“I played up Zooey’s amazing eyes so I wanted to keep the rest of her look neutral, highlighting her cheeks and adding a touch of color to her lips,” says Jorjee. She used Rimmel London Lasting Finish Blendable Blush & Highlighter in Autumn Blush on her cheeks and Rimmel London Lasting Finish Intense Wear Lipstick in Nude Pink on her lips.

Get the Look: Claire Danes at the 2012 Golden Globes.

 

Claire Danes' hair was styled by Peter Butler (Artists by Timothy Priano) for Wella Professionals for her look at tonight's Golden Globe Awards. Her makeup was done with Laura Mercier Cosmetics.

Matin Maulawizada, Global Artistry Director and Brand Ambassador for Laura Mercier, explains how he created the nominee’s red carpet look – a modern take on classic
Old Hollywood Glamour.

Face:
•      To ensure she looked flawless throughout the evening - from her early afternoon red carpet arrival to post-show after-parties, Matin prepped Claire’s face using the iconic Laura Mercier Foundation Primer, $30.
•      Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Foundation in Sunny Beige, $50, evened out her skin tone.
•      Matin then lightly applied Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Golden Mosaic, $38, to Claire’s cheekbones to enhance her natural glow.
•      Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC3, $28, brightened darker tones under Claire’s eyes.
•      The look was set with Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder in Translucent, $34, a universal loose powder that creates a soft-focus effect on-camera.

Lips:
•      Claire’s vibrant, statement-making red lips were created with several layers of Laura Mercier Crème Lip Colour in Seduction, $22.

Eyes:
•      Matin used Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Black Ebony, $22, to line Claire’s upper and lower rims, and finished the look with two coats of Laura Mercier Waterproof Mascara, $20.

For the hair, Claire Danes’ chic, modernly messy bun complimented her J. Mendel dress; a frock with a neckline that is very geometric with hard lines requires  soft hair. Peter Butler mentioned that he was envisioning a modern Grace Kelly.
 
To create this look, Peter Butler blew out Claire’s hair with Wella Professionals Extra Volume Mousse.  Once completely dry, he curled her hair with a large barrel curling iron for extra volume. Pull the hair back into a high pony and wrap the hair in a tight knot. This look was only secured with TWO hair pins!
 
Lastly, Peter combed back Claire’s hair with his fingers, coated with Wella Professionals Mirror Polish Shine Serum for a soft sheen and a quick spritz of Wella Professionals Stay Essential hairspray for a hold that will last all night.

Get the Look: Piper Perabo at 2012 Golden Globes.

 

For tonights Golden Globe Awards, Piper Perabo had her makeup created by Troy Surratt for NARS Cosmetics.

Inspiration:
 "The look is very ethereal. It’s dewy and glowing with a gorgeous sparkly pink lip, which was the perfect look to complement her bold dress. For me, it was a classic approach with a subtle balance of attention paid to all points of the face."

The Look:
We started with Cle de Peau La Crème to prep her skin as it’s something she uses on the show and day to day. Her foundation was NARS Sheer Glow Foundation with Cle de Peau Concealer to cover any imperfections.

On her eyes, we dusted the shimmery icy pink side of  Douce France Trio Eyeshadow (new for Spring 2012). We created a thin, barely-there line of black along her entire lashline using the Nuits Blanches Eyeliner Stylo. To get the precision, we placed the Push Eyeliner Brush to the ink of the stylo, and applied a thin line from the inner corner to the outer corner, growing slightly thicker at the outer corner, but not extending past the corner. We used Larger Than Life Lengthening Mascara on her lashes for definition. Brows were filled in with Jodhpur Eyebrow Pencil to make them appear more dense. To set the pencil, I applied Shiseido Translucent Brow Shaper.
 
On the apples of her cheeks, using a Yachiyo Kabuki Artisan Brush, we created warmth with Gilda Blush. It was the perfect blush shade at the intersection of peach meets pink without any shimmer.

We created a pinky-beige lip by first lightly defining with Rosebud Lipliner Pencil, filling in with with Frivolous Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil, and applying Baby Doll Lip Lacquer just to the center of the lips. This creates a light-reflecting affect for a fuller pout on the red carpet.
