OMFG! Blake Lively is Vogue‘s February cover girl. Lively looks absolutely lovely, channeling old Hollywood a la Veronica Lake.
“The fashion is just unbelievable. You can watch our show on mute and be entertained,” Lively says. And she’s not overstating it. The characters wear designer clothes that teeter between unattainable chic and self-parody, be it Bass’s wearing a tuxedo covered with paillettes that shimmer like a matador’s suit or Blair’s attending the dean’s party at Yale with an Alice-in-Plunderland pewter-colored satin bow in her hair. For her part, Lively is entranced by Serena’s authentically local look. “Just being here, walking around, you pick it up really quickly,” she explains. “In New York, you put on skinny jeans and riding boots and a leather coat and handbag, and you take on that posture and character,” Lively says. “It becomes very natural.” Lively’s natural style? Costume National boots, dark Rag & Bone trousers, and a Joie cashmere vest over a Ports 1961 white pointelle cashmere sweater, punctuated by Chanel earrings, a Chanel handbag, and a Jeri Cohen diamond bracelet. (“They let me borrow it, and now I can’t take it off,” Lively says mischievously.)
Didn’t Drew sport this same exact hairdo as Josie Grossy in Never Been Kissed?
Renee Zellweger looks like she just escaped from somewhere – just in time to walk the red carpet. Unfortunately, she didn’t have a chance to change out of her indecent witch costume and into something more appropriate.
The question isn’t ‘what’s wrong with this picture?’ The correct question is ‘what’s right with this picture?’ And the answer is – absolutely nothing. Mickey Rourke looks like the wax figure version of his worst self. But congrats on your Golden Globes win, crazy!
This Year for the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards, nominee America Ferrera, walked the red carpet with makeup designed by Linda Hay.
“Inspired by America’s effortlessly chic Oscar de la Renta dress, I kept her look sweet and simple,” said celebrity make-up artist, Linda Hay. Linda used Jouer’s Age Repairing Brightener around the eye and on the nose to illuminate America’s eyes. “The skin, I kept as sheer as possible by using as little as possible. I like to cover whatever’s required without over doing it because America has beautiful skin,” Linda said. On the cheeks, using finger-tip application, Linda applied Jouer’s Lip and Cheek Tint in Amaryllis, a sheer warm read which blended in to compliment America’s skin tone. “On her eyes, I applied a light and sheer shimmer all over the lid and inner corner of the eye, with a metallic silver shadow in the crease.” Using a black pencil, Linda applied a thin, defined line right above her lashes. Linda applied three coats of Dior Blackout Mascara to America’s eyes to make them pop.
Celebrity makeup artist Amy Oresman created Hayden Panetierre’s Golden Globe look – and now she shares her secrets to this flawless face:
Eyes: “With eyes like Hayden’s green sparklers, who needs a load of jewelry? We amped up the brilliance of Hayden’s green eyes with Neutrogena’s newest Nourishing Eye Quad in Vintage Wine. It includes a dazzlingly deep burgundy in a powder powerful enough to act as an eyeliner, which is perfect for creating the smoky look that Hayden adores. I layered on the Vintage Wine at the lash line and doubled it in the outer corners for an extra flash of drama.”
Face: “I love to build on Hayden’s golden look with Neutrogena Radiance Bronzer in Sunkissed. I swept it through the crease of her eye and all around her cheekbones and neck. It’s so soft and light you just cannot put too much on … so go crazy with it!”
“After bronzing, I mixed two delectable Neutrogena Soft Color Blushes – Sunny Spice and Divine Wine and applied them with a round brush in a circular motion to the apples of Hayden’s cheeks. I love layering this blush — it’s so sheer you can dust a little color in the crease of the eye to tie your look together.”
Lips: “This year lipstick is back and Neutrogena’s are brighter and better. My favorite is Neutrogena’s Moisture LipColor in Whisper Pink for painting on the perfect pout. It goes on with just a hint of shine so it leaves your lips looking healthy and moist.”
Also, remember the following tips when re-creating this glamorous face. First, never contour with blush. It makes you look so retro-80s – and not in a good way. And slip a pack of blotting sheets into your evening clutch, to remove shine without removing your makeup.
Celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbow used Tarte Cosmetics on Mary Louise-Parker for the 66th annual Golden Globes.
Complexion: The Eraser in Porcelain (new shade launched this month), ReCreate anti-aging foundation with Wrinkle Rewind and SPF 15: Porcelain 00 (new product launching this month), and Provocateur Mineral Pressed Powder with SPF 8: Fair.
“Salma’s makeup look was directly inspired by her dress,” said NARS Makeup Artist Matthew Vanleeuwen. “She chose a very neutral colored dress and wanted to make sure her makeup look would pop. I made her eyes the focus and added a lot of rich, jewel skin tones and fresh color to her cheeks and lips. Her look was very classic and chic, with some modern textures.”
Below is Matthew’s step-by-step to recreate Salma’s look:
Eyes: Apply China Blue Single Eyeshadow to top and bottom lash line (Matthew’s tip: “I love using navy colors because they make the whites of the eyes pop.”) Next, use Corfu Cream Eyeshadow as a base, all over eyelid. Use the golden champagne side of Alhambra Duo Eyeshadow on lid. Then, use Bengali Single Eyeshadow all along the lash line, rubbing it into the lash line, deepening the outer corner of the eye, creating shading. Curl the eyelashes and apply 2 coats of Black Orchid Mascara on lashes. Go back over top lash line with Night Clubbing Eyeshadow and use what is left on the brush under the eye to define it (Matthew’s tip: “This shade is perfect to create a smokey eye – it gives a rich sparkle at the lash line with undertones of green and gold.”)
Complexion: Use the Brightening Serum to make skin glow and apply Makeup Primer. Apply Firming Foundation and set with Loose Powder.
Lips: Use Marnie Lipliner Pencil and Tutti Frutti Lipstick. Next, mix Boogie Nights and Greek Holiday Lipglosses and apply them over the lipstick.
Blush: Apply Desire Blush to the apple of cheeks. (Matthew’s tip: “I use a powder brush to apply blush. I find that a bigger brush makes a much softer wash of color.”) Next, use Laguna Bronzer with short, back and forth stokes from the back of cheekbone forward, to blend.
