Golden Globes Beauty: January Jones.

Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin did the gorgrous makeup for January Jones at this years Golden Globe awards.


Beauty Inspiration:
"January's look was all about strength - there was nothing demure about it! I wanted to go for a super strong brow, and a high gloss red lip.  90's supermodel meets old Hollywood glamour!"

Beauty Tip:
"The makeup was simple with two strong elements.  I prepped her skin with CHANEL Sublimage Concentrate. I then sculpted her cheeks with CHANEL Bronzing Makeup Base.  On her lids, I used a wash of champagne coloured shadow, CHANEL So

ft Touch Eyeshadow in Liberty.  I created a strong, bold defined brow with the CHANEL Perfect Brows palette, and applied two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir.  Finally, I knew I wanted to go for a glossy red lip as opposed to a matte red, to keep the look fresh and not too retro.  I used an amazing red gloss, CHANEL Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Excess, to complete January’s strong red carpet look.”

Frederic Fekkai Celebrity Stylist Renato Campora created a timeless and elegant style for the Mad Men star. 

 

Campora was inspired by the styles of the 1960’s, which he believes is one of the most striking decades for beauty. His look created for January channels old Hollywood glamour, with a modern twist that is full of volume and timeless elegance.

HOW TO GET THE LOOK:

On wet hair, Campora began by applying Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Styling Whip to create volume and Fekkai Coiff™ Contrôle Ironless Straightening Balm to smooth out the hair.  He parted the hair to the side and blow dried using a round brush.  To create waves, he put hair in hot rollers and let them sit for 10 minutes.  Once he took the rollers out, Campora brushed through the hair creating volume and constructing shape for the style. To finish off her look, Renato sprayed Fekkai Coiff™ Sheer Hold Hairspray for all night hold.

Golden Globes Beauty: Hailee Steinfeld.

Makeup Artist Fiona Stiles created the beautiful makeup look for actress Hailee Steinfled for this years Golden Globe Awards.

 


Beauty Inspiration:
"Hailee was wearing a beautiful, long ivory Prabal Gurung dress with a sporty race back that is chic and youthful.  I focused on beautiful,luminous skin and a little kitten flick of black eyeliner to give it a fun,
slightly dramatic look, while still being age appropriate.  A little taupe/light brown shadow dusted along the lash line on the top and bottom added a bit of depth, a touch of peach flush to the cheeks and a nude lip keep the focus on the eye and the skin.



Beauty Tip:
"As a base, I used CHANEL Vitalumiere Fluid Makeup in Clair. On Hailee’s face I used CHANEL Poudre Douce in Peche Tendre, and CHANEL Powder Blush in Espiegle on her cheeks.  For her eyes, I applied CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Slate along lash line softly on top and bottom.  Her eyes were
lined with CHANEL Automatic Liquid Eyeliner in Noir. I used a soft wash of the pink in the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Murano mixed with the silvery taupe CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Sillage.  I applied two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir.  Finally I lined her mouth with CHANEL Lip Definer in Beige, and applied CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Beige Felin.”

Golden Globes Beauty: Anne Hathaway.

Celebrity Makeup Artist Kate Lee did the glowing makeup for Anne Hathaway, who was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical nominee, Anne Hathaway.


Beauty Inspiration:
"Anne wore a nude rose sequin gown. The dress featured a strong shoulder, so I wanted to make sure the make up was approachable and feminine to allow the dress its full attention.”

 

"I used CHANEL Sublimage Concentrate to add an i ntense boost of hydration to the skin. Next I used Nars Oil free pro prime to help the make up to stay put. The foundation was CHANEL Vitalumiere Fluid Makeup, I love its dewy finish. I used Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting powder in Medium to pop Annie's cheekbones. On the eyes, I used CHANEL Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Sand, which is like a toasty rose gold. In the socket I added depth by adding a little taupe shadow.  I curled the lashes, applied one soft coat of CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir, my go-to for all award shows! Her lips were prepped with CHANEL Hydramax + Active Lip Care, then blotted and given a coat of CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Mademoiselle, and then topped with CHANEL Coco Shine in Bel Ami which gave the rose a violet hue. (Available in April). I tucked the lip color plus the CHANEL Natural Finish Pressed Powder compact inside her purse, and off she went!”

Adir Abergel for Frederic Fekkai created a refined but casual bohemian style for Anne.

ADIR ABERGEL’S INSPIRATION FOR ANNE HATHAWAY:
The dress was a statement on its own so Abergel wanted to create a mix between the style of curls seen in the1930’s and the 1970’s; a relaxed but fresh wave.  

 

HOW TO GET THE LOOK:

Abergel applied Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Styling Whip and sprayed Fekkai Coiff™ Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel from the roots to the end of the hair.  Next, he blow dried the hair lightly with his hands, letting her natural wave surface.  With a 1” barrel, he curled the hair away from the face, placing into pin curls. Abergel let the hair cool.  As he took the pin curls out, Abergel let the hair fall naturally into place with a center but messier part to achieve the bohemian vibe. Finally, he secured the look by spraying Fekkai Coiff™ Sheer Hold Hairspray.
