GOLDEN GLOBE STYLE: METALLIC SPARKLE

Roll out the red carpet because awards season has arrived! There is something I love about the Golden Globes that I don’t feel for the Oscars. The Globes are an evening of glamour, but with less of the pomp and fluff, more fun, (seemingly) more enjoyment, and people usually say hilarious stuff as the champagne flows. It’s my kinda night!

Like the majority of viewers, I also love watching for the fashion. I particularly enjoy seeing what trends emerge. This year, Emma Stone took the trend of metallic sequins and made it truly sparkle. Not only did her look appear effortless, but I absolutely loved the whimsical touch of the sequin stars that cascaded down her gown – they shimmered with every step. So I’ve recreated the look with pieces that are fun, playful, and perfect for a night on the town with your ladies, or a hot date.

Did Emma Stone’s look make it to your list of favourites? Let me know in the comments!

OSCAR STYLE: ACCESSORIZE IT!

With all of the 2016 Oscars handed out, and another round of red carpet style wrapped up, it’s time to talk about our favourite looks. More specifically, the gorgeous accessories! After admiring the stars’ dresses, I love checking out their extravagant jewels (I’m an earrings and bold rings kinda gal). Your accessories are the perfect place to inject some personality to your ensemble, so I was thrilled to see the ladies rocking some very unique pieces and fun new ways to sparkle.

From Olivia Munn’s wrap-around bracelet, to Whoopi Goldberg’s octopus ring, and Brie Larson’s delicate jeweled hair clips, there was definitely a playful element to the accessories worn by these leading ladies. And I can’t forget to mention Charlize Theron’s eye-catching lariat bling that perfectly accented the deep v of her gorgeous, red dress. But, I think my favourite accessories of the night were Saoirse Ronan’s stunning, green dangling earrings. There’s something about rich, emerald jewelry that gets me every time!

GOLDEN GLOBE STYLE: RED CARPET BEAUTY

With the post-Golden Globe week coming to an end, it’s time to share the last installment in my red carpet inspired looks, and this is one is a bit of a change from my previous fashion looks.

I’ve invited Toronto based makeup artist, Alyssa Antonio (owner of Makeup By Aye) to share her favourite beauty look, along with the products you’ll need to recreate the look yourself!
“I loved Jenna’s look! Her soft pink lip colour and smokey blue eyes are right on trend with Pantone’s Colours Of The Year. This is a great look for someone who wants their makeup to make an impact without overdoing it – perfect for a night out on the town!”

73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

For the face: You’ll want to go with products that leave you with a dewy, sheer finish. I recommend NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, along with Chanel’s Vitalumiere Satin Smoothing Fluid Makeup, and Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer Kit as the base. For effortless golden contours, I love Benefit’s Sun Beam and Benefit’s Hoola Matte Bronzer. Finish off the face with naturally flushed cheeks by using Makeup For Ever’s HD Blush in Nip Slip.

For the lips: NARS Lip Gloss in Orgasm will give you a perfectly pink pout.

For the eyes: For a night where you’ll want your makeup to last, I always start with an eyelid primer like Laura Mercier’s Eye Basics. To create this smokey look, I would use MAC Eyeshadow in Saddle for the crease, Chanel Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Ebony for the outer corners, MAC Eyeshadow in Mystical Mist to blend from the lids to the outer corners of the eye, and MAC Eyeshadow in Shroom for the inner corners of the eye. To finish your dramatic look, false eyelashes and a few swipes of mascara are a must! I love Benefit’s They’re Real mascara.

For the brows: With the smokiness and drama of your eyes, you’ll want to keep your brows looking clean and natural. To add definition, I  recommend Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow in Dark Brown. To keep your brows in check, Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel will do the trick!

Have you tried any of the above products listed? If so, which ones do you love? Let me know in the comments!

Thanks to Alyssa for sharing her favourite Golden Globe beauty look with us. I hope you’ve enjoyed all the looks this week, and can’t wait to see how you incorporate them into your daily style.
