hilary duff red heart truth.jpgHilary Duff was our pick for best dressed at Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection fashion show last week, and her messy updo really complimented her stunning gown. With a bit of a jagged part, dark roots and a few flyaways, her hair still looked amazing.

fekkai lifting & texturizing spray.jpgTo achieve this “controlled mess”, it’s important to prep hair with texturizer before blowing it out with a round brush (try Fekkai Coif Bouffant Lifting and Texturizing Spray Gel, $23, Next, flip dry hair up and down (this adds body), then pull it back into a loose bun. When your hair is secure, finish the look by pulling a few wisps out by your ears.

The 2009 SAG Awards are one of our favorite award shows simply because it’s a bit more relaxed and actors are given the opportunity to award their fellow actors. Of course, as always, we love to “ooh” and “ahh” at the gorgeous makeup and hair. This year we saw everything from beautiful updos to long, loose waves; curled tresses and flowy straight manes. We saw red lips and eyes decked out in icy shadows (eyeshadows, that is), and we loved every minute of it. Check out our favorites.

 Anne Hathaway enchanted us with a lush lash look that complimented her glossy berry stained lip. We loved her loosley tousled hair that not only screams chic, but carefree at the same time.



january jones sag awards 2009 2.jpg

January Jones caught our attention, as always, with a fresh look that was both romantic and bold. With makeup to compliment her natural beauty, hairstylist Mark Townsend continued that theme by creating soft yet modern waves on the Mad Men star.

Julia Ormond glowed with radiant skin and shiny hair. We love how her full brows and big lashes made her green eyes really pop, while a soft glossy pink lip and glowing cheeks kept her look fresh.   



Taraji P. Henson wowed us again with shimmery, defined eyes and a glossy lip. And while her hair may be cut in a classic bob, we love the high shine added to keep the glamour quotient at maximum levels.

Kate Winslet is a red carpet goddess this award season, and here is another example of why. A great side-swept updo kept her looking sophisticated while shimmery eye makeup and a neutral palette of soft pinks on her cheeks and lips added just the right amount of glamour.

Jennifer Morrison never disappoints us when it comes to the red carpet. The House star’s look had an ethereal quality with loose waves and luminous makeup. Bronze and pink tones kept the look light and airy and really complimeted her white gown.

Viola Davis was the picture of glamour at the evening’s festivities. With soft curls framing her face, and subtle yet flattering makeup complimenting her skin, we were in awe of her fabulous glow.    


freida pinto sag awards 2009 2.jpgThe gorgeous Freida Pinto captivated our attention with her classic updo and flawless skin. We love the use of blue and violet toned eyeshadows to help frame her black-rimmed eyes while a rasberry hue gave her lips their glossy finish.

Jenna Fischer
, who plays our favorite secretary on the hit series The Office, looked beautiful at the Golden Globes. We were mesmerized by her flawless look, and her makeup complemented her dress so well. So, just how did she get this look? We did some digging to bring you the beauty scoop.

Makeup artist Brett Freedman played up the Jenna’s look by extending the eyeliner on her eyes and created a more vivid, “out of the box glam” for the usually subtle Jenna using the following products:


Foundation: LORAC Oil Free Powder Foundation in #02 (light), $35, 

Loose Powder: Magic by Prescriptives in Deep Translucent. Brett says, “This product has a gorgeous light reflective quality with a hint of bronze, so it photographs beautifully.” $35,

Concealer: Cle De Peau Concealer in Beige.$85, 

Blush: Almay Smart Shade Blush in Natural, $5.39,, topped with LORAC Oil Free Illuminating Powder in Luminous on apples of the cheeks. $32,

Eyeshadow: RIMMEL Colour Rush Mono Eyeshadow in #330 Azure, applied wet and swept over lids and blended down to a sheer finish.

Liquid Liner: LANCOME La Laque Liner in Pure Black, applied in a line across the top lash line, thickening and extending out and upward for a dramatic look. $25,

Brow Highlight Shadow: LOREAL HiP pigment powder in Restless. Brett says, “I love a bright, crisp browbone. This champagne hued shadow looks natural yet packs a punch.” $12,

Mascara: VANITYMARK ‘the LASH’ in Blackest. Three coats were applied to really amp up the top lashline. One full coat on the bottom to give eyes definition without overpowering the top lash line. $16,

Faux Lashes: Kre-At Beauty individual lashes. A mix of the short (on the inner eye) and the long (for outer) in black were used to give an alluring sweep.

Body Bronzer: VANITYMARK Summerskin, applied first to ‘tone down’ the tawny shade so Jenna would have a healthy glow without being too tan. Brett says, “When you’re showing that much flesh it’s good to have a nice lift of color.”  $14,

Lips: BENEFIT Pocket Pal in Benetint, $20,


The Golden Globes was a night of gorgeous gowns and beautiful hair and makeup looks. Most of our favorite celebrities showed up and wowed us. Unfortunately, some of them didn’t. Take a look at our favorite and not so favorite looks of the big night.


Our Favorites:



Maria Menounos golden globes2.jpg

Maria Menounos looked gorgeous as always. We love the romantic updo and soft makup that ony helped to compliment her one-shoulder royal blue gown.  



kate beckinsale golden globes2.jpg

Kate Beckinsale never dissapoints us when it comes to red-carpet looks. At the Golden Globes she opted for a sleek updo and dewy skin. Bold earrings really helped add a strong, yet polished statement.



Beyonce golden globes2.jpg

Beyonce isn’t one to shy away from trying bold looks, but we were happy to see her looking more refined at this event. Soft grey smokey eyes, a pale shiny lip, and a polished low ponytail brought this very beautiful look together.



Kristen Scott Thomas golden globes2.jpg

Kristen Scott Thomas was the picture of glamour and elegance on Sunday night. We couldn’t help but be in awe of her glowing skin. Nothing overdone, just sheer and pretty. 



olivia wilde golden globes2.jpg

Olivia Wilde looked fabulous in her strapless lilac gown, and instead of going the updo route, chose to wear her hair down. Thankfully, the Golden Globes aren’t a stuffy event, so it worked. Lightly smudged eye makeup, pink cheeks and pale pink lips make this star look cool and comfortable under the heat of the sun.




isla fisher golden globes2.jpgIsla Fisher glowed in neutral pink and brown makeup tones. But while this makeup made the Confessions of a Shopaholic star look gorgeous, we could only covet her shiny hair! It seemed to be the focal point of her look as her dress was also neutral. Wow…


jennifer morrison golden globes2.jpg

Jennifer Morrison had all eyes on her as she walked the red carpet in her breath-taking blue gown. Of course our eyes were on her hair and makeup: icy metallic-rimmed eyes, peachy-pink cheeks and lips, not to mention glowing skin. Could she look any better?



Our Not-So-Favorites:


Renee Zellweger golden globes2.jpg  

Renee Zellweger could have knocked her look out of the park had it not been for her over-done hair. We were disappointed, of course, to see one of our favorite stars not looking her best. At least this is only the start of award season. She’ll have many more chances to wow us in the coming weeks.



Drew Barrymore golden globes2.jpg

Drew Barrymore has shown us many looks in the past. Some have been good, some not, and this has definitely landed on the latter list. We love the idea of a bombshell ‘do Drew was going for, but somehow the finished look didn’t work for us, though we know many people loved her look.




Angelina Jolie golden globes2.jpg

Angelina Jolie didn’t seem too into the night’s event, and it showed. Her look, to us, fell flat. We’re sure she would much rather have been home with her kids than attending yet another red-carpet function, so we hold nothing against her for that.




Blake Lively golden globes2.jpg

Blake Lively arrived at the Golden Globes in a fabulous blue gown, and her makeup was stunning, but we didn’t really care for the under-done look of her hair. Don’t get us wrong, loose waves are always a do, but this style just missed the mark.


Megan Fox golden globes2.jpgMegan Fox is one actress we feel has many missteps on the red carpet. Her gold gown is beyond flattering, and her makeup is flawless, but, like the other starlets on our not-so-favorite list, she threw it off with her hairstyle. The bun is just too tight. We would have preferred to see her hair in a looser style. Oh well, maybe next time.

january jones at golden globes.jpg Freida Pinto at golden globes.jpg

January Jones and Freida Pinto looked amazing at this weekend’s Golden Globe Awards. Although January went for an old Hollywood look and Freida opted for a more sunkissed glow, both looked gorgeous, and we were in awe of their flawless looks.


To create the glamorous eye look on January Jones, makeup artist Rachel Goodwin used Chanel Automatic Liquid Eye Liner in Brun along the upper lid extending out to the edge of the brow. $34,

January’s tangerine-red lip was acheived using Chanel Rouge Allure in Dazzling, $30,


For Freida’s sunkissed look, makeup artist Jeffery Paul mixed together a foundation and concealer, only using it where it was needed. He then used Jouer Creme Highlighter on her cheeks to bring out her natural definition. $20,

For a pretty pink that accentuated Frieda’s natural lip color, Jeffery used Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Monsoon, $20,
