Whether you are kicking it with the girls , searching for your soulmate, or snuggling up with your sweetheart - we want you to look just like the star you are with these glam looks from the Golden Globes. And to provide you with the perfect guide, we've teamed up with iconic Manhattan salon Pierre Michel Salons best.The focus of all these makeup looks is radiant skin. I love that all the ladies have decided to go with fresh glowing skin look . They all seem to be very minimal with beautiful highlighted cheeks and clean eye.
Even Olivia and Reese have a modified version of the smoky giving it a soft look with light browns golds and grays as opposed to the black .It gives the evening makeup look but a much softer appearance while still making the eyes pop.
Using a luminous finish foundation can give the skin that luster. Also a highlight powder or cream on the cheekbones to give the skin that glow . All opted for a nude lip or gloss as well except Zooey, who left the eye makeup natural and chose the lip as the focal pont with a bold red lip. Claret from Face Stockholm or Dragon Girl from Nars are a few of my favorites.
Shockingly awesome, of course, Beyonce uploaded a bare-faced photo of herself yesterday on Instagram. The photo inevitably became viral shortly after she posted what looks like a selfie of herself. She looks refreshingly human, quite a stark contrast from her empowering performance at the GRAMMY's last Sunday.
But that's why we all love Queen Bey. She can play up the drunk-in-love vixen role for a performance then turn it down for a more personal look for social media.
Special kudos to the Instagram app for changing the way celebrities can share all their personal photos with fans!
The Kardashian clan is well known for their glamorous aesthetics. Always sporting heavy lashes, tons of bronzer, and fabulous face contouring thanks to make up, the Kardashians are known for their indulgent lifestyle. However, Kim Kardashian was recently spotted sans make-up in gym clothing.
In a way, it's refreshing to see this barefaced beauty apart from all her dramatic flair. But let's be honest, it's always kind of shocking to see celebrities without their make-up on. Sort of like spotting a Professor outside the lecture halls---weird and unusual.
We don't mean to insult Kim K's natural beauty, this momma surely has a lot to be thankful for when it comes to good looks. It seems as though she's doing well in her pursuit of keeping off the baby weight, you go Kim K!
