Monday, January 16, 2012

A look at Jane Lynch as she walked the red carpet at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, California on January 15th, 2012. Her makeup was done by makeup artist Jackie Mgido. On inspiration, Mgido said, “Jane Lynch is all about classic simplicity.”

Makeup Breakdown:
* Primer: Oil free Laura Mercier. Love this product oil free but hydrating. I did not want to use any powder on her skin wanted to keep the natural glow.
* Foundation: I airbrushed her using Dinair. A lot of the time, airbrushing can leave a dry feel to the skin. Dinair is great as it just feels light on the skin.
* Eyes: I used Laura Mercier Metallic Eye Cream and Stila Jewel Eyeshadow Trio Palette — Opal, Rose, Quartz, Amethyst mostly around the lash line.
* Mascara: Blue Eyes Physician Formula Mascara Duo
* Concealer: Amazing Cosmetics
* Blush: Inglot Liquid Blush — great stuff, really easy to use.
* Lips: Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain and Balm

A look at Dianna Agron as she walked the red carpet at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, California on January 15th, 2012. Her makeup was done by makeup artist Monika Blunder. For Dianna’s makeup, Monika was inspired by the spring 2012 fashion shows where the makeup was fresh but still very glamorous. Since Dianna’s red Giles dress was so “va va voom,” Monika focused on the lips to be the stand out feature.

Makeup Breakdown:
Monika kept Dianna’s skin simple and fresh with a bit of L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Makeup in Light Ivory to give skin a light glow. Since the focus was kept on her lips, only a small amount of L’Oréal Paris Magic Smooth Soufflé Blush in Celestial (Pink) was applied to the apples of cheeks.

The bold red lip stole the show; Monika applied L’Oréal Paris Infallible Le Rouge in Bold Bordeaux for lasting shine and pigment. The eyes were highlighted with a hint of L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Iced Latte with Vaseline applied over it to create added shine.

The L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner in Black was lightly applied around the rim of the eye and Monika applied several coats of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara in Black to complete the look

Her hair was styled by Adir Abergel for Frederic Fekkai. Abergel wanted a simple and chic up-do that complimented the beautiful and intricate texture of the dress.

Hair Breakdown
Adir began by applying Fekkai COIFF™ Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel on the roots and rough dried the hair with his hands. Next he braided the hair, applying a small amount of Brilliant Glossing Cream to give it texture and shine. Once the hair was dry, Adir took the braids apart, raked the hair with his hands, and created a deep sweeping part angled towards the back of the head. Adir gathered the hair in the back, creating sections of little twists and ultimately pinning them together. He secured the look with Fekkai COIFF™ Sheer Hold Hairspray

A look at Naya Rivera as she walked the red carpet at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, California on January 15th, 2012. Her makeup was done by makeup artist Jo Baker.

Makeup Breakdown:
Cleansing Naya’s skin with Proactiv Renewing Cleanser, followed by Revitalizing Toner, made sure her skin was free from all traces of dirt and surface impurities.

I applied Proactiv Oil Free Moisturizer with SPF15 to prime the skin underneath the foundation, creating a soft matte finish. Being oil free, it helps to set her foundation and keep it in place all night long. DiorSkin Nude foundation was ideal, only lightweight coverage was needed. This silky base oozes moisture whilst keeping a smooth finish, showing off Naya’s clear and radiant complexion.

I kept the eyes very simple, a soft grey color wash of Dior Powder Mono Eyeshadow in #053 over her lower lid, lashings of lash enhancing Tarte MultiplEYE mascara and a sprinkling of individual lashes. The most prominent feature of Naya’s Golden Globes look is the NARS Pure Matte lipstick in Mascate, this wonderful berry red shade suits almost every skin tone. It glides on effortlessly with comfortable wear, you forget your wearing lipstick the texture is so yummy and lasts for hours.

Lea Michele:
Getting Ready
"I really like working with Lea, because she gives all of us—hair, makeup and wardrobe—the chance to really collaborate and come up with something that works together," Inglessis said on working with Michele. "She's willing to try anything, and definitely listens to what the experts have to say!"

Lancome Liner Design in Trendy Grey
While many use this product as a liquid liner, Inglessis used the shimmery grey cream as an eyeshadow base. "I blended this all over Lea's eye as a base. It gives the eyeshadow something to really grip on to," she said. "I think using a cream base is the key to making any smoky eye really work. Concentrate most of the color along the lash line, and blend outward using your ring finger or a makeup brush."
Available Spring 2012.

Lancome 5 Color Palette in Gris Fatale
Inglessis used the two darkest shades in this palette to create Michele's sultry smoky eye. "I started by defining her crease and blending in the two colors to create depth," she said. "Layering the colors was key. By building up the colors, I was able to determine how much eyeshadow Lea really needed without going overboard."

Lancome L'Absolu Rouge in Rich Cashmere
Because Michele's eyes were so dramatic, Inglessis chose a buff neutral for her lip. "I used a matte lipstick on Lea," said Inglessis. "Matte lipsticks are very modern, and the neutral tone allowed her eye makeup to be the focal point."

On the Red Carpet
"I think this look worked so well on Lea because I was able to take one of her features and emphasize on it," Inglessis told InStyle.com. "She has such gorgeous eyes, and I think her slate-hued dress tonight really called for a sultry, smoky eye with a metallic finish."
