Get the Look: Jessica Alba at the 2013 Golden Globes.

 

Jessica Alba was one of my favorite overall looks from the 2013 Golden Globes. Her colorful ODLR coral dress and even brighter coral lip looked amazing on her. Her makeup was created by Makeup Artist Lauren Andersen using Hourglass Cosmetics.

On Sunday’s red carpet Jessica Alba looked stunning in tangerine. The glamorous mother of two, a presenter at the awards ceremony, wore a gorgeous peach-colored gown by Oscar de la Renta. “The dress was the inspiration,” says makeup artist Lauren Andersen. “I loved the contrast between her glowing skin and the matte orange lip. It’s an almost tropical pop of color that’s not an exact match for the dress but close.”
 
Skin: Lauren prepped the skin with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, and followed with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Sand. She then used Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer in Warm under the eyes, down the bridge of the nose and fanned the product out in the center of the forehead to create dimension. She finished the skin step with the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light applied all over to create a golden, subtle warmth. “It’s a soft, refined shimmer that’s glowy,” says Lauren.
 
Cheeks: She used the bronze shade from Hourglass Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset to contour the cheeks and followed with the blush shade on the apples of the cheeks.
 
Eyes: Hourglass Film Noir Kohl Eye Pencil in Espresso was first applied to the outer corners of the eyes and then smudged it with a brush. Lauren then applied Hourglass Superficial Waterproof Bronzer in the crease of the eyes and the gold shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Dune on the lids. Lashes were treated to several coats of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara. She finished up by amplifying the brows with Hourglass Arch Sculpting Brow Pencil in Soft Brunette.
 
Lips: Finally, Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Riviera, a vibrant tangerine shade, was applied to the lips. The velvety matte color delivers richly pigmented and long-lasting coverage for up to 14 hours.

Get the Look: Julianna Margulies at the 2013 Golden Globes.

 

I swear Julianna Margulies looks better every time I see her. She was flawless at the 2013 Golden Globes with hair and makeup from L'Oreal Paris. Her makeup artist was Molly Stern, with her hair styled by Sebastian Scolarici.

 

Makeup:

Tonight Julianna chose a Pucci lace backless gown. So we matched the drama of the dress by doing a bold lip. Her finished looks is bold, and fresh with a softly defined golden eye.
 
STEP-BY-STEP:

STEP 1: Molly first prepped Julianna's skin with L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur Finishing Cream ($24.99) to create a soft-focus finish

STEP 2: Next, she applied L’Oréal Paris Magic Lumi Primer ($12.95) and sparingly applied L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Foundation ($14.95)

STEP 3: For cheeks and eyes, Molly added a pop of color with Laura Mercier cream blush in Sunrise ($24) & Eye Basics Base in Tawny ($24)

STEP 4: She dusted the L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Eye Shadow Quad in What Happens in Vegas ($7.95) all over the lid before adding L’Oréal Paris Infallible Shadow in Eternal Sunshine ($7.95) for an added golden sheen

STEP 5:  Molly lined Julianna’s upper and lower lash line with the hues in L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad in Skinny Jeans ($7.95)

STEP 8: Molly created Julianna’s bold pout by using L’Oréal Paris Infallible Compact Lipstick in Crimson ($11.99)

Hair:

Sebastian kept Julianna’s hair purposefully simple, sleek and elegant so as not to detract from her show-stopping dress – a gorgeous, navy Pucci with a plunging back.
 
STEP-BY-STEP:

STEP 1: Sebastian prepped Julianna’s hair with L’Oréal Paris’ new Advanced Haircare Smooth Intense Shampoo and Condioner ($4.99 each)

STEP 2: While hair was damp, he worked in the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Smooth Intense Frizz Taming Serum ($6.99) before blow-drying smooth

STEP 3: Once dry, Sebastian tightly  brushed Julianna’s hair back with a Mason-Pearson brush before securing with a Hair Bungee® to create a ponytail that was perfectly sleek, but had a bit of height to it

STEP 4: He finished the look by tying just a piece of patent leather around her ponytail to add just touch of glam to this simple look

STEP 5: Before Julianna hit the red carpet, he sprayed Elnett Satin Hairspray ($14.99) to lock in her look and tame any flyaways

Get the Look: Julianne Moore at the 2013 Golden Globes.

 

Julianne Moore looked like a true movie star at the 2013 Golden Globes. With her beautiful updo, bright lip and beautiful Tom Ford gown, she was every bit the part. Her makeup was created by Makeup Artist Elaine Offers with L'Oreal Paris, and her hair was styled by Chris McMillan for Living Proof.

Makeup:

Elaine kept Julianne’s beauty look very clean, striking and classic – the perfect complement to her 60’s-inspired, graphic black & white Tom Ford frock.  While the 60’s were all about a nude, pale lip, Elaine gave Julianne’s beauty look a modern twist with a fresh and vibrant fuschia lip.
 
STEP-BY-STEP:
STEP 1: Elaine prepped Julianne’s skin with L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur Finishing Cream ($24.99) prior to foundation application to create a soft-focus effect

STEP 2: Next, she applied L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Foundation in Porcelain Light Ivory ($12.95)

STEP 3: Any dark circles or skin imperfections were concealed with L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Crayon Concealer ($8.95)

STEP 4: Elaine added hints of luminosity to the corner of Julianne’s eyes with L’Oréal Paris Magic Lumi Highlighter ($12.95)

STEP 5: For cheeks, Elaine applied just a hint of L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blush in Pink Lift ($12.95) to add a natural flush and give an overall glowing effect

STEP 6: Eyes were lined with L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner in Brown ($8.95) before softly blending the four hues in the new L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad in 527 Sultry Seductress ($7.95); This quad includes a slate and rich plum – the perfect colors to highlight Julianne’s green eyes

STEP 7: Her lashes were amplified with L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Power Volume 24H Power Mascara ($7.95)

STEP 8: Her lips stole the show in L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick in Velvety Fuschia ($9.99)

Hair:

“It all started with the dress, Julianne showed me what she was wearing yesterday and I had 24 hours to figure out how to style her hair. Overall it was a ‘60s look – I have been watching a lot of Hitchcock lately. I took inspiration from the graphic clothing styles that are a trend this season paired with the hair I saw on the runways of Luis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs.  

TIPS/TECHNIQUE: “First, I applied Living Proof Prime Style Extender, it gave me the sleek, smooth, healthy hair I needed for styling. I then applied No Frizz Weightless Styling Spray to the crown to keep the hair looking smooth. I dried the hair straight with a large round brush.  I created a deep side swept bang, and then pulled the hair back into a classic French twist with an uneven seam. Everything else about the look was so perfect and sleek that I wanted the seam to be a little deconstructed. Finally, I secured the look and added Firm Hold hairspray to keep the hair in place.
