Golden Globes Beauty: Sandra Bullock.

Celebrity Makeup Artist Angela Levin did the makeup look for Sandra Bullock for this years Golden Globe Awards.

Beauty Inspiration:
"My inspiration for Sandra was rock and roll with just a touch of disco!! Sandra and I agreed that a strong semi rock and roll eye with a touch of glamour would work well using similar colors that are in the jewels and dress and taking in consideration the bangs and hair style.”

Beauty Tip:
"I prepped Sandra’s skin with the CHANEL Sublimage Concentrate, and then applied CHANEL Hydramax + Active Cream. On her eyes I first used CHANEL then using a combination of all colours from the Ombres Perlees de CHANEL Eyeshadow Palette, using the dark shades on the outside and working my way
in to the lightest. I lined her eyes with CHANEL Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Ebene, and then applied two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir.  I powdered her face with CHANEL Natural Finish Pressed Powder, and CHANEL Blush Duo Tweed Effect in Tweed Pink.  Finally, on her lips I used
CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Chintz.”

Celebrity hairstylist David Babaii tended to her tresses. 

The 60's took the lead on Sandra Bullock's look with creating a full bang and textured ends. Celebrity hairstylist David Babaii applied a small amount of Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment to her damp hair. After blow drying her hair straight with a paddle brush, David sectioned the hair separating the bang area first then clipping the sides and back. Starting at the nape he re-applied an additional amount of Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment to each section creating the maximum amount of shine while flat ironing the hair completely straight with IT&LY HAIRFASHION'S Digital Flat Iron. Using a digital control allows the proper temperature to achieve the best results. For the bang area, he flat ironed them by turning the iron slightly under creating a soft cupping affect. To finish he applied some of the oil to his hands warming slightly and running his hands over the top to smooth fly-a-ways and define the piecey texture to the ends.

Golden Globes Beauty: Megan Fox.

Megan Fox looked stunning with her side-swept classic ‘do, with the help of hairstylist Andy Lecompte and Phyto.

 

Hairstylist Andy Lecompte was inspired to create a classic look for Megan Fox with a glamorous vibe to complement her stunning one-strap gown.

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, Lecompte brushed out her hair and gave the hair a deep side part.

Golden Globes Beauty: Nicole Kidman.

Celebrity Makeup Artist Angela Levin created the gorgeous look worn by Nicole Kidman for this years Golden Globe Awards.


Beauty Inspiration:
"Nicole's dress was a stunning, elegant white gown, so I wanted to add a bit of edge with the makeup.  The Golden Globes were all about a touch of rock and roll this year!"

Beauty Tip:
"I prepped the Nicole’s skin with CHANEL Sublimage Concentrate, and applied CHANEL Pro Lumiere Makeup in Nude.  On her eyes I used the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Winter Nights, and three coats of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir.  Her cheeks were CHANEL Powder Blush in In Love. I finished off her lips with CHANEL Rouge Allure Laque in Ming.”

Her hair was tended to by David Babaii.

Celebrity hairstylist David Babaii created Nicole's look with a 70's feel. To achieve this look, he applied a small amount of Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment (David is the first to use this "new" product: available March 2011) to her damp hair. David created a full side part and sectioned the hair for control. His favorite method is to divide the head into 4 sections (top, sides, back leaving the nape area your starting point). With the finest Italian made blow dryer by IT&LY HAIRFASHION and a medium round brush, David wanted to demonstrate that you can achieve straight hair while infusing volume by using only a blow dryer. After drying each section straight, he applied an additional amount of Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment to the lower portion of her hair. He divided the strands into 6 large sections and wrapping each one around a round brush. Each section was given a blast of hot air to create the curl followed by a shot of cool air to set the curl in place. Gently he released the curl creating soft defined waves.
