Makeup Monday – Golden Globe Beauty & How To Get The Look

Did you watch the Golden Globes last night? I did! And while the awards show itself is fine, I really watch it for the fashion & beauty.

My favourite dresses of the night:

Although, I had never heard of the show or the actress before, when Brooklyn 99 won for best comedy, I couldn’t help but notice the stunning cobalt blue dress Stefanie Beatriz was wearing.

While, not something I would wear, I loved Cate Blanchett’s dress and whole look. She looked incredibly elegant and timeless.


Another dress I would never wear but absolutely loved was Amy Adam’s dress. It looked stunning on her and payed great homage to her American Hustle style.

And lastly, I love, love, love Sofia Vergara’s dress. It was spectacular and I would give anything to wear such an amazing dress. And to top it off with that bold statement necklace, just perfection!

As for beauty looks. I noticed a lot of very natural looks on the red carpet this year. Nude lips were definitely a hit and as always, red lips.

My Favourite Beauty Looks of The Night:

Kerry Washington, from Scandal, looked amazing. I loved her smokey eye.

Taylor Swift, pulled off another great red carpet look. Very timeless with a red lip.

Monica Potter, from Parenthood, looked stunning. I loved her dress, although I’ve seen a lot of criticism for it online. And I thought her hair and makeup were both so beautiful.

I also loved Kate Beckinsales look. Very similar to Kerry Washington with a smokey eye & nude lip.

As soon as the Golden Globes were over, I was inspired to do some makeup & recreate one of my favourite looks. So yes, at 9 o’clock at night, I put on a full face of makeup, took pictures and then washed it off. I’m not crazy…I just love makeup.

I decided to recreate Kate Beckinsale’s look. I loved her smokey eye. It was nice but not overpowering and didn’t include any heavy eyeliner. She also had gorgeous glowing skin. While I desperately need a tan to fully pull off this look, I can show you how to recreate her eye makeup & glowing skin.
