Best Hair & Makeup Looks At The 2012 Golden Globe Awards
We’ve picked out the best-dressed ladies of the 2012 Golden Globes but, gowns aside, who was giving face on the red carpet? Below, you’ll find the most sickening (and we mean that in the best way, of course) hair and makeup looks of the evening!
1. Nicole Richie’s Retro Ponytail
Reality TV star and fashion designer Nicole Richie managed to outshine all the nominees in the hair department, stealing the show with a retro-flavored ponytail styled by Andy LeCompte. Her bangs were perfectly trimmed so that they seemed to open and curve to the sides like curtains, extending past her brows along the outer edges of the face. The high ponytail itself, meanwhile, included a bit of a Bardot-esque bump at the crown, but it was for from your standard pony, with strands of hair along the sides curving seductively, tucked underneath the base of the long, bust-grazing ponytail, and no visible elastics or pins.
2. Emma Stone’s Gunmetal Smokey Eyes And Pink Lips
Revlon spokesperson Emma Stone looked smoldering last night at the 2012 Golden Globes, complementing her luxurious Lanvin gown with rosy cheeks, petal pink lips, and smoldering smokey eyes. Celebrity makeup artist Rachel Goodwin created Stone’s look for the show, using a mix of Revlon and Chanel products.
To give Stone a youthful, radiant complexion, Goodwin applied the Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer and then smoothed the Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse Makeup in Nude to her visage. To give her cheeks a light flush, Goodwin swept the Chanel Powder Blush in Orchid Rose, a soft peachy pink hue, along the apples of the cheeks.
On Stone’s eyes, meanwhile, Goodwin used the gunmetal and rich plum shades in the Revlon ColorStay Precocious Eyeshadow Quad, diffusing these darker shades with the light silver hue in the quad. She then lined the upper and lower lash lines with the Chanel Intense Eye Pencil in Noir and coated lashes with the Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir.
To balance the look and soften the strong eye look, Goodwin opted for a soft pink creamy lip color, applying the Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter, a hydrating balm with a touch of sheer color, in the Lollipop shade to Stone’s pout.
3. Sofia Vergara’s Hot Pink Lips
Sofia Vergara was a vision from head to toe, her brown strands straightened to balance the heaviness and the voluptuousness of her mermaid tale Vera Wang dress, and her makeup kept simple and modern, with an emphasis on playing up her bronzed skin and her killer smile.
Makeup artist Kayleen McAdams created Vergara’s look for the awards show, using a number of CoverGirl products.
On Vergara’s face, McAdams applied the CoverGirl TRUconceal Concealer in No. 4 under the eyes and around the nose, camouflaging dark circles and contouring the features. Next, she applied the CoverGirl NatureLuxe Silk Foundation in Nutmeg using a sponge, setting it with the CoverGirl Clean Pressed Powder in the Soft Honey shade. To give Vergara’s cheeks a hint of color, she applied the CoverGirl Cheekers Blush in Plumberry Glow along the cheekbones and the apples of cheeks.
For the eyes, McAdams relied on the CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 3-kit Shadows in Golden Sunset, applying the light bronze shade along the lids and working it into the crease. And, for bodacious lashes, she brushed three coats of CoverGirl LashBlast Mascara to the top lashes and a single coat to bottom lashes.
Last, she applied CoverGirl LipPerfection Lipcolor in Everlasting, a creamy fig-like brown, to Vergara’s pout, followed by CoverGirl LipPerfection Lipliner in Beloved, a deep purple-tinged pink, to mattify lips and keep color from feathering or bleeding. The result was an azalea pink lip that made the Colombian bombshell all the more alluring.
4. Reese Witherspoon’s Sexy Loose Waves
Frederik Fekkai hairstylist Adir Abergel created the beachy, tousled waves Reese Withespoon donned on the red carpet, greatly increasing her look’s sexpot factor. To give the hair a slightly mussy texture, Adir starte by applying Fekkai Coiff Océanique Tousled Wave Spray to Witherspoon’s dry tresses. Next, he smoothed a small amount of the Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream to the ends in order to lock in moisture.
Using a medium round brush, he blow-dried the hair and, once finished, wrapped curled each section of hair using a 1″-barrel curling iron, applying only a small amount of pressure so that the curls would appear softer rather than tight and coiled. After brushing the curls softly to give them a more understated, haphazard, Bohemian quality, Adir pulled the hair at the crown back and gave it a bit of a Bardot-style bump, adding volume along the back. Last, he spritzed Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray to give the look longevity, along with Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Sheer Shine Mist for a lustrous finish.
