Wearable Golden Globe Looks

Watching Sunday nights Golden Globes I was thrilled to see many of the actresses wearing makeup looks that can be easily interpreted for real life. From Kate Hudson‘s perfectly bronzed skin, Sandra Bullock‘s use of color and Monique’s lovely lashes, there were many looks that any woman could wear for a fabulous dinner or a great night out. If you are fair try Kate’s romantic makeup over bronzed skin.

Benefit Sheer Cream Blusher

Start off by applying foundation, concealer and powder then filling in the brows slightly. Next strategically sweep bronzer on the temples, along the sides of the face and under the cheekbones. Now swirl on rose pink blush along the cheekbones. Sweep an opal highlight shimmer across the entire lid from lash line to under the brow bone, on the inner corners of the eyes and on top of the cheekbones. Apply a purpley quartz shade across the crease and smudge it under the lower lash line. Line the upper lash line with a thin black pencil getting as close to the roots as possible and line the inside rim of the eyes in a deep plum eyeliner. Apply a few individual lashes at the outer corners of the eyes and then use black mascara on top and bottom lashes. Finish with a pinky nude lipgloss.

For medium skinned ladies channel your inner Sandra Bullock by applying the usual face of foundation, concealer and powder then sweeping on rosy pink blush to just the apples of the cheeks. Apply champagne shimmer highlighter under the brow and sweep a lavender hue across the lid. Line eyes with a deep plum eyeliner and use a dark purple shadow in the crease. Apply a ½ set of false lashes at the outer corners of the eyes. Sweep on black mascara on top and the bottom and polish off the lips with a rosy pink lipstick and gloss.

For dark skinned women, check out Monique for her monochromatic beauty and fun flirty lashes. Begin with foundation, concealer and powder and sweep bronzer along the temples, sides of the face and under the cheekbones. Blend on raisin blush along the cheekbones and back into the hairline. Apply gold highlighter across the entire lid from lash line to crease and sweep a deep brown into the crease and at the outer corners of the eyes. Use 1 whole set of lashes and line the upper lash line with a thin line of liquid eyeliner and apply black mascara on the upper lash line only. Slick on a moisturizing mocha lipstick and your gorgeous and ready to win!
