Best in Beauty at the Golden Globes
I lack an essential estrogen receptor that makes awards shows painfully dull to me. Sure there may be a twinge of excitement when my best picture prediction rings true, but overall they just aren’t my thing. I will twerk for the pre-show though, when the gowns and face paints are on full display. I rounded up the three best beauty looks from last night’s Golden Globes and break down how you can recreate them at home.
Look, I don’t want to call anyone out on their bag of bull, but Kate Beckinsale says that she’s never had Botox. If that’s true then she must have sold her soul to one of those demon castmates of hers from “Underworld: We’ll Make More Movies As Long as it’s Profitable,” because I haven’t seen a canvas this blank, smooth, and mysterious since the answer booklet to my macroeconomics final. Nonetheless, her foundation was the standout of the night in a sea of over-powdered faces (this matte skin trend is just meh). Makeup artist Adam Breuchaud evened her skin with Jouer’s Age-Repairing Concealer in No. 3 Cameo and used Jouer Luminizing Tinted Moisturizer in Bronzed as a foundation. On her cheeks is Jouer’s Cheek Tint in Whisper and Mineral Powder Bronzer in Sunshine.
I’ll be honest and tell you that I had to Google this woman just to make sure that she wasn’t some producer’s daughter who nabbed a plus one to the Globes. IMDB confirms she’s legit, and I vaguely remember her as a high school student Seth Rogen harassed, I mean dated, in “Pineapple Express.” I actually like her bouffant but I’m wild about her eyes, which were swept with the browns and bronzes from Hourglass’ Vol. 6 Eye Palette and Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy.
A veteran on the red carpet, Angela Bassett looked like a dream, as usual. Her smoky eye complemented her onyx gown and her lips were nude done right. You can recreate the same look with Nyx’s Slim Lip Pencil in Natural under CoverGirl’s lipstick in Crème.
