So it is that time of year again, award season kicks off in style with the Golden Globes. Last year’s hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will return again this year to host the 72nd Annual Golden Globes.
Personally I love seeing the make up and outfits worn at the event. There has been some questionable make up looks since the Awards started.
Who can forget Angelina Jolie’s 2002 appearance when her brows appeared to be drawn on with a sharpie. They were far too defined and squared off. She lacked definition in her face, a bit of contouring/blush would have warmed up her face and given it some shape. Even her liner looked like it was done by a very unsteady hand. Angelina has a very square shaped face which was only accentuated by very arched eyebrows. Also the white highlight on her brow bone did not help the situation!
Another memorable make up mishap was in 2001 when Kim Cattrall rocked up to the event looking like she had spent a week in a sun-bed…….. from the neck up! Her face was far too bronzed up for her body which may have looked okay-ish in person but photographed terribly!
Another victim of bad make up at the 2001 Golden Globes was Thora Birch. I dont think I need to go into too much detail with this one but I will say one thing – Blending is key. This is why you should always blend eyeshadow. The last thing you want is to look like some one did your make up with a Crayola.
Lets just repress these memories and move onto some beautiful make overs of last year’s 71st Golden Globes. One of my favourite looks from 2014 was the absolutely stunning Amber Heards. Her hair and make up really complimented each-other. I love her bronzed eye look, it was natural enough to be timeless but dramatic enough to make her eyes the main focus even with a strong outfit and hair.
I absolutely loved Kate Beckinsale’s look too. She had such an amazing dewey finish to her foundation which really made her look flawless.
Sophia Vergara nailed the under-stated eye and bold lip combo. She paired flicked liner with a soft pink lip and flawless skin. This look really worked with her features and was natural enough. She wore a statement necklace so the make up was toned down a little.
Mila Kunis went with a grey-toned smokey eye which worked well with her outfit. However I do think her hair could have been slightly more dramatic. I totally get that they were trying to keep it toned down because of the neckline of the dress but I think it could have had a little more volume.
Heidi Klum went very natural as her dress was so detailed. She kept her skin dewey and lined her water-line with a nude kohl pencil to make her eyes appear much bigger. Love this look!
The last look that I want to mention is Sarah Hyland. She decided to go natural too with emphasis on a strong brow.
As always I can’t wait to see what everyone wears this year! Im sure there will be some amazing looks.
As always I love hearing from you guys so feel free to comment with any thoughts you may have!
