January Jones at the 2010 Golden Globes

GET THE LOOK: January Jones was wearing CHANEL Beauté at the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards. January’s makeup look was created by Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin.

Beauty Inspiration & The Look: “January’s Golden Globes makeup was all about taking a fresh approach to the classic red lip.”

Beauty Tip: “I used Le Blanc de CHANEL under her base to create luminous ‘glowing from the inside’ porcelain skin, then treated her lips with CHANEL Hydramax + Active Lip Treatment before applying CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Paris – a gorgeous garnet red from a new lipstick line launching in March. I painted the finest black line on her upper lid with CHANEL Automatic Liquid Eyeliner in Noir and shaded under her eyes with CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Graphite in the outer corners. I finished her look by layering lots of different false eyelashes then added Exceptionnel de CHANEL Noir Obscur Mascara over the top for an intense black lash line.”

Kate Hudson’s Makeup at the 2010 Golden Globes

GET THE LOOK: Kate Hudson was wearing CHANEL Beauté at the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Kate’s makeup look was created by Makeup Artist Leslie Lopez.

Beauty Inspiration & The Look: “Golden Globes makeup is all about the dress. When I saw Kate in her gorgeous white dress, I knew we had to go for a clean, sophisticated, pretty look – very Grace Kelly.”

Beauty Tip: “I prepped Kate’s skin with CHANEL Sublimage Fluid before applying her base, L’Oreal True Match Foundation in N-3. In the crease of her eyes I used the grey shade from the CHANEL Quadra Eye Shadow in Blue Celestes. I applied the lightest silvery white shade under the brow bone, as well as under the lash line. The inside of her eyes were lined with Almay black eye pencil, and I finished the eyes with CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir. Finally, on her lips I used CHANEL Aqualumiere Sheer Colour Lipshine in Malta, a sheer subtle peach shade.”

Monica Cruz In Elle Spain Magazine October 2009

How hot is Monica Cruz? No, that’s not Penelope Cruz, it’s Monica, her sister. Don’t they look alike? It took me few minutes to realize it wasn’t Penelope. Monica is the ultimate brunette beauty. She almost makes me want to dye my hair brown again! I also love her very black smoky eye, the classic.  Any Thoughts guys?

To get Monica Cruz’ black smoky eye try Magic Kajal Eye Pencil by Givenchy, $21.50. This eye pencil allows you to apply a precise line or a create a smudge or smoky eye effect.

And, what do you think about Monica smoking in photo below? Maybe it’s a cultural thing. It was shot for Spanish Elle, maybe smoking it’s not as big a deal as in the U.S.

Christina Applegate at the Emmy Awards 2009: Get The Look

Red carpet beauty scoop: get the look of Christina Applegate at the 2009 Emmy awards. Christina ‘s look was created by Makeup Artist: Joanna Schlip for Clarins.

The Makeup Look: Joanna was inspired by Christina’s dramatic, sweeping gown by Basil Soda when creating her makeup look. The vintage glamour of the navy stunner called for simple makeup that still made a statement. With her hair pulled back in a chic chignon, Joanna was able to play up Christina’s eyes with a sexy retro smolder, while keeping her skin fresh and lips softly pink. Like the dress, Christina’s makeup exuded a Brigitte Bardot 60’s cool, with a modern twist.
