Golden Globe Beauties

Red carpet beauty and fashion is my favourite part of award shows (although I thought Ricky Gervais was hilarious) - everything else is kind of a yawn. There wasn't really anyone that stood out as a winner to me but there was definitely a lot of pretty faces and dresses.

Beauty expert and celebrity makeup artist, AJ Crimson, dishes on his favourite beauties of the night along with tips on how to achieve their flawless looks!

Julianna Margulies:

Julianna wins top spot with AJ! Natural and fresh skin, slightly defined corners of the eye make a beautiful doe eye shape in soft taupe and gold accentuated corner lashes with a subtle cheek rose color

To get the look use water based foundation to get a clean barely-there application.  On the outer corner of the eye, slightly define at the lash line into the crease. Use a soft brown shadow such as #98 by Makeup Forever or Taupe by MAC. Define the lash line with aqua black waterproof cream eyeliner, adding faux lashes on the outer corners and coat with SmashBox DNA LASH mascara.

Zoe Saldana:

Deep liner! Rim the entire eye with SMOLDER eye kohl by MAC, soften and set to prevent edges from running with Nars eye shadow in Sofia.

Kate Hudson:

I loved Kate Hudson's look. She looked stunning and classic. It was all about bronze cheek and nude lip this Spring.

To Achieve the look try SmashBox photo finish lipstick in MAGNIFICENT with Honesty by Kissable Couture on top for shine. We loved the hair softly pulled back and with a Guerlain Bronzer ( for the cheeks.

Anna Kendrick:

New comer - looked stunning with a soft smoky gray eye and heavy liner.

Achieve the look with lightly applied Lili Marlene cream shadow by Nars all over the lid into the crease. Set with a light sweep of #31 shadow by Makeup Forever.  Finish the look with Boot black eyeliner by MAC and Covergirl Lash blast Mascara!

Kristen Bell

The Peach cheek. Nothing says spring like full blushy cheeks. Try Style by MAC or for a rosy peach or #153 by Makeup Forever.


Oh so radiant.  Very beautiful defined doe eye, bronze golden skin, soft brown eye. This look was just great placement.

To achieve this look try Exposed lip gloss by Kissable Couture #129 and soft brown eye shadow by Makeup Forever.

Christina Hendricks:

Rosy cheek, classic Red lips, black liner with heavy mascara. Try Amour by Nars Shu Umera eye pen in black with DIORShow mascara.Try adding some faux lashes for added drama! VERY MAD MEN!

My faves:

Loved AJ's choices but here are a couple of others to add to the list! 

Drew Barrymore:

I've loved Drew Barrymore since I was a kid. She has this fresh youthfulness about her and her look at the Golden Globes was exactly that. The dress wasn't my favourite - the shoulder/waist tinsel decoration kind of threw me off but she still managed to land her first Golden Globe!

Meryl Streep:

Meryl Streep can do no wrong. She is one of my absolute favourite actresses and always carries herself with such grace and elegance. Did anyone get a good look at her skin? Fabulous! Glowing and radiant.

Who were your favourite beauties at the Golden Globes this year?

I didn't watch the Golden Globes, but I've been seeing lots of pictures popping up on blogs. I think Christina Aguilera's makeup was gorgeous!
