2012 Red Carpet Makeup Awards
Emma Stone usually dazzles in simple makeup while her smokin’ red hair takes center stage. She surprised us all at the Golden Globes, pairing her sultry Lanvin dress with a dark smoky eye. Chanel celebrity makeup artist Rachel Goodwin used Chanel Intense Eye Pencil in Noir ($29, nordstrom.com) and Revlon ColorStay 16H Eyeshadow Quad in Precocious ($7.49, drugstore.com), focusing on shades of pewter and gunmetal to make her baby blues pop.

Bold, structured brows are huge this season and Rooney Mara hit the trend perfectly at the Golden Globes. The actress’ makeup artist used the Per-fekt Beauty Brow Perfection Gel ($22, sephora.com) to condition and tame the brows. By pairing with a light blush, soft pink lip and voluminous lashes, Mara proved that a bold brow can be feminine and red carpet appropriate.

New Girl’s Zooey Deschanel knows how to work her best asset and she did just that at the Golden Globes. Celebrity makeup artist Jorjee Douglass played up her mod inspired makeup look with thick, voluminous upper and lower lashes. “I loaded up her lashes with Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Mascara ($9.99, ulta.com) to make her long lashes even longer.”

Reese Witherspoon proved that pink on pink makeup may be girly but it doesn’t always look too pre-teen. At the LA premiere of This Means War, the actress went with Avon Be Blushed in Pink Melon ($8, shop.avon.com), a rosy blush, and Avon Shine Attract Lipstick in Fuchsia Flare ($9, shop.avon.com).

The Bridesmaid actress has naturally flawless skin and at the Oscars, makeup artist Maude Laceppee played it up with Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer ($42, sephora.com). “We wanted the skin to look transparent but radiant and the new tinted moistuzier produces that effect.”

“A pink lip is a modern twist on the classic red lip and looks beautiful when the rest of the face is natural,” said celebrity makeup artist Melanie Inglessis who did Lea Michele’s look for the People’s Choice Awards. She coated her lips in Lancome Rouge in Love Lipstick in Roses in Love ($25, lancome-usa.com). We love how it isn’t just any soft pink but has a twinge of purple too!

Who else would be worthy of this coveted award? Angelina Jolie went simple with her Oscars makeup, letting her red lip do all the talking. Go with M.A.C. Lady Bug ($14.50, maccosmetics.com) to recreate. Too bad we didn’t have an award for most dramatic pose!
