Stars Shine In Retro And Vintage Looks
Beauty trends showed strong last night at the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards. Here are some of the popular looks that dominated the red carpet!
1940s movie starlet hair
Stars channeled their inner Veronica Lake and Rita Hayworth with side-swept vintage waves. In addition to host Tina Fey, this wavy style was seen on Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Alba, Megan Fox, Heidi Klum and Isla Fisher, to name a few. Golden Globe winner Connie Britton went a step further with double pinned back pin-curls — also known as "victory curls," a popular style during World War II. Since she won last night, she chose her style wisely! The other side of this vintage trend was seen in low side buns (host Amy Poehler, actresses Alison Pill and Amy Adams) and twisted/textured updos, like Jennifer Lawrence's braided low chignon.
Try retro-glam waves at home by parting hair to the side and curling 1-inch sections with a medium curling iron. Pin each curl to your scalp and spray with a flexible-hold hairspray like Living Proof Hold Flexible Hold Hairspray (sephora.com, $28). Release the curls and use a comb to form "S" waves around your head. Finish with a second coat of hairspray.
Nude, naked skin
The stars literally showed off their skin on the red carpet. Instead of overly illuminated faces, we saw clean, perfect, yet natural-looking skin. Blush was in rosy, tawny or nude/beige tones, mimicking a natural flush. Except with a few bright pops of color (mainly in pink) we saw pale pink, nude or Champagne tones on lips and with a good balance of high-shine or matte colors. Stars like Kate Hudson, Jennifer Lopez, Connie Britton and Adele all showed off these feminine, natural lips.
Get flawless skin at home with a high-definition foundation like Urban Decay Naked Skin Liquid Makeup (UrbanDecay.com, $38). Follow with a nude-toned blush like L'Oreal Paris Visible Lift Color Lift Blush in Nude Life (drugstore.com, $13) and pink/nude lip gloss such as Sephora Collection Ultra-Shine Gloss in Shiny Perfect Nude (sephora.com, $18).
Metallic, smoky eyes
Most of the stars wore a smoky eye at the 70th annual Golden Globes. The twist? Instead of traditional black, the stars used metallic tones. Some notable looks: The bronze palette on Julianne Hough (above), charcoal-metallic tones on Morena Baccarin and silver on Hayden Panettiere.
Rock the look at home with a smoky eye palette such as Too Faced Smokey Eye Shadow Collection (toofaced.com, $36).
1960s bombshell hair
We saw glimpses of Sophia Loren and Brigitte Bardot on the red carpet. Sarah Hyland and Maria Menounos invoked memories of Sophia Loren with their brunette, parted in the middle, high-volume, va-va voom hair while Katharine McPhee oozed Italian-screen goddess with her high messy bun, smoky eyes and nude lips. A high-volume, high-styled ponytail with full, curled bangs gave Zooey Deschanel a '60s Bardot look (and maybe Barbie too?).
New mom Claire Danes looked St. Tropez-gorgeous with ultra-blonde, bedroom sexy hair, smoky eyes and nude lips. Finally, bombshells don't have to be female... Julianne Hough unleashed her inner Elvis with a fabulous pompadour. With slicked sides and a high pouf, her bob was transformed into a style worthy of rock legends.
To get easy bombshell hair at home, add a dollop of volumizing mousse to your hair. One to try is Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumizing Mousse (drugstore.com, $4). Next, blow dry with a round brush. When you are done, flip your head upside down to create volume and texture. For added volume, tease 1-inch sections of hair toward the back of the crown of your head.
Sleek and natural
Actresses Sienna Miller and Olivia Munn stunned on the red carpet with slicked back buns and barely-there makeup. George Clooney's girlfriend, Stacy Keibler, rocked the trend with long, sleek hair.
Get this easy look at home by slicking a shine serum, such as L'Oreal Professionel Mythic Oil (salons nationwide, $29) into your hair. Create a deep side part and slick hair back into a bun. Fasten securely into a low knot and you are good to go!
Nail art has made its way onto the red carpet and is here to stay! Actress Zooey Deschanel had retro movie camera and film images painted onto each of her nails, while Adele had glitter to match the sparkle of her look.
Embellish your nails at home with easy to use nail polish strips, such as Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips in Bling It On or Glitz Blitz (drugstore.com, $9).
