And…we’re off! This Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, officially kicked off the Red Carpet Season in Hollywood. For insight into Award Show beauty, we turned to West Hollywood’s Blushington lead makeup artist Jessica Scantlin. She showed us how to recreate the Hollywood looks — from the illuminated skin to sleek hair and retro red lips.
Glowing and Gorgeous
“For this look, it’s all about a clean complexion: a natural glow is the focus of attention,” says Blushington’s Jessica Scantlin. “I prefer to use Stila’s Perfect and Correct Foundation to even skin tone. For additional luminescence, I add a drop of liquid highlighter, like the new Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Skin Liquid Lighting in Candlelight. This gives the complexion a natural radiance. For a touch of color, apply a warm peach cream blush to the apples of the cheeks. Try Kevyn Aucoin The Creamy Glow in Tansoliel, for a natural flush.”
Red, Red Wine…Red Carpet Lips
Red lips have always been a timeless trend on the red carpet, but this year’s Golden Globes saw a deeper take on a crimson lip. Wine lips were spotted on many actresses, including Jennifer Lawrence and Rashida Jones. “Try a bolder red lip this season. For that deep wine-red lip, first line and fill lips with a deep red lip pencil for definition. The liner base will also make your color last longer. I like Jouer Cosmetic’s Lip Definer in Rouge, a riche wine-red hue. Apply a classic deep red lip stick; I like the all-time classic, The Expert Lip Color in Bloodroses by Kevyn Aucoin,” says Scantlin.
Which one of these looks are you going to try at home? We’ve decided we all want to be Glowing and Gorgeous!
