Get the Look: Zooey Deschanel at the 2014 Golden Globes.

Inspiration: “Zooey looks like a dream in her cream-colored dress, so I wanted to keep the eye very natural and clean, and make her lips pop.” –makeup artist Jorjee Douglass

Complexion:

  • To prep Zooey’s face, Jorjee dabbed tarte’s maracuja oil into her skin.
  • Next, she applied maracuja creaseless concealer in light underneath her eyes to erase any darkness.
  • To even her skin tone, she smoothed BB tinted 12-hour primer in light all over.
  • For a gorgeous, natural-looking flush, she dabbed the cheek stain in tipsy over the apples of her cheeks, then followed with Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in tipsy for an extra punch of color.
  • She set her complexion with Amazonian clay finishing powder.

Eyes:

  • To create a clean, fluttery eye, Jorjee used the be MATTEnificent colored clay eye & cheek palette. She started by smoothing “view from the taupe” up into her creases. Then she lightly blended “bronze horizon” from the sultry sunset Amazonian clay palette over top. To create soft lash definition, she lined her eyes with “don’t stand black” from the be MATTEnificent colored clay eye & cheek palette on her lower lashlines.
  • Next, she coated her lashes with two layers of gifted Amazonian clay smart mascara.
  • She finished by defining her eyebrows with Amazonian clay waterproof brow mousse in taupe.

Lips:

  • For a vibrant red, Jorjee mixed LipSurgence matte lip tint in fiery with LipSurgence power pigment in tipsy—the colors combined create a gorgeous pop-art hue.

Get the Look: Amy Adams at the 2014 Golden Globes.

Makeup artist Stephen Sollitto created a “chic” 1970s-inspired makeup look for Adams, who won the Golden Globe for “Best Actress (Musical or Comedy)” for her role as Sydney Prosser in “American Hustle.”

Get the Look: Amy Adams at the 2014 Golden Globes.

 

Sollitto stated, “This whole season, in a nod to Amy’s movie ‘American Hustle,’ we have been inspired by the ‘70s. With their fantastic smiles, healthy glows and brushed out hair, we have kept the decade’s style in mind for each look.”

FACE: Flawless, bronzed, glowing skin was the focus of the look
 
·         Sollitto began prepping Adams’ skin the evening before the Globes, instructing the actress to apply RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream Retexturizing Hydrator, ($195) and RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Eye Cream Ultra Retexturizing Hydrator, ($140) after cleansing her skin.

·         The day of the awards, Sollitto applied the NEW Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide (COMING FALL 2014) all over Adams’ face. Sollitto stated, “This foundation goes on easily but the finish is very polished. It's long wearing, oil free and lightweight. The best thing is that is gives you a matte finish so you don't have to dust your face with loose powder. It's built in, simple and genius.”

·         To “catapult” the look into the ‘70s, Sollitto applied a light dusting of Laura Mercier Bronzing Pressed Powder in Matte Bronze, ($32).

·         He achieved the “perfect glow” by applying Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Praline, ($24) to Adams’ cheeks using his fingers.

LIPS: “Nudish orange” lips supported the star’s “bronzy glow”

·         Sollitto applied a mixture of Laura Mercier Crème Lip Colour in Discretion and Tangerine, ($24/each) because the customized shade “supported Adams’ bronzy glow, but didn’t compete with it for attention.” 

EYES: Neutral eyes that “pop”

·         First, Sollitto created a modern neutral base by applying Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Ballet Pink, ($23) all over Adams’ lids.

·         Next, he brushed Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Terracotta, ($23) into Adams’ lash line and lid, and sweeping it out at the corners of her eyes and under her bottom lashes.

·         To make Adams’ eyes “pop,” he applied Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick Colour in Plum, ($26) to her upper lash line and the outer corner of her lower lash line.

·         He then applied Dior Diorshow Blackout Mascara ($25) to her upper and lower lashes.

·         Sollitto finished the look by dotting Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick Colour in Sugar Frost, ($26) to the corners of the Adams’ eyes.

Get the Look: Allison Williams at the 2014 Golden Globes.

For Allison Williams' Golden Globes red carpet beauty, Avon Global Celebrity Makeup Artist Lauren Andersen created a classic sultry smokey eye to match Allison's black and white gown, complemented by a soft pink rose lip.

Get the Look: Allison Williams at the 2014 Golden Globes.

Here's how to get the look.

First, Lauren groomed Allison's brows with Votre Vu Brow Wax.

Next, she played up Allison's baby blue eyes with a classic smokey eye using Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Urban Skyline.

Lauren lined her eyes with Avon Glimmersticks Eye Liner in Blackest Black and then coated lashes with Avon Mega Effects Mascara.

On Allison's face, Lauren applied YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation and then dusted on Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light.

Lauren swiped Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Rose Petal on the apples of Allison's cheeks.

To complete the look, Lauren applied Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Ripe Rose.

Allison’s stunning Alexander McQueen dress shaped the inspiration to keep her hair look elegant, simple and clean.  Celebrity Stylist Anthony Campbell did her hair using Wella Professionals products.

Step-By-Step Styling:

First, hair was washed and conditioned with Wella Professionals Enrich Shampoo and Conditioner

Hair was gently towel dried, and then a dollop of Wella Professionals Velvet Amplifier was applied to prep hair for a controlled look.

Blow-dry the hair using a large flat brush to achieve pin straight hair.  Ensure the hairdryer isn’t too hot, which can cause it to dry out and break, giving you frizz.

Once the hair is completely dry, create a deep side parting for added elegance.

Run a flat iron over hair, section by section finishing off each piece with a light spray of Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray and leave to cool.

To finish, add a few drops of Wella Professionals Oil Reflections, which will increase shine to hair for an added pop, without weighing hair down or looking greasy.

Get the Look: Sofia Vergara at the 2014 Golden Globes.

COVERGIRL Sofia Vergara was absolutely stunning on the Golden Globes red carpet rocking a voluminous black dress and a serious statement necklace.  Here’s a breakdown of the bombshell’s beauty look from a rare, new perspective – her own!  Sofia dishes on her makeup for the big award show night and shares the COVERGIRL products used to help create her glamorous red-carpet look.

Get the Look: Sofia Vergara at the 2014 Golden Globes.

"For this year's Golden Globes, I really wanted to do something different. I wear makeup every day - I wouldn't think about leaving the house without it! - but of course it's such a big night, and everyone is taking pictures, so I have to look good. With my dress so elegant and my necklace so bold (and heavy!), I wanted to keep my hair and makeup simple and classic.

To start off with a good base that would last all night, I started with COVERGIRL truBLEND Foundation in M6 which is super lightweight and blendable. On top, a light dusting of powder to set the look and a bit of rosy color for the apples of my cheeks with Clean Glow Blush in Roses. My dress and jewels were the center of attention, so I had to balance my hair and makeup. For me, a really glamorous evening look starts with the eyes. I love the drama of a cat eye - tonight I went with brown liner as opposed to black with Bombshell Liner in Chocolate Kiss to create the look. I then used Bombshell Shine Shadow in Gold Goddess to give my eyes a little sparkle. As always, I LOVE big lashes so I used Bombshell Volume Mascara on my top and bottom lashes to add volume and intensity. 


For me, lipstick is a must - I feel naked without it. I wish I could just wear a nude shade, but it's not me - I need color. I went with a bold red with LipPerfection Lip Color in Flame. Oh I also always keep a gloss in my purse for touch-ups!"

COVERGIRL makeup is available at your favorite drugstore at mass retailer.
