Golden Globes 2011 Makeup Yawn (for the most part)

    This year the Golden Globes red carpet was an assortment of dazzling dresses, pretty colors, and terrific designers. From the gorgeous blue Marchesa on Amy Adams, the fuchsia Lanvin on Julianne Moore, a variety of blush pinks, the exquisite emerald greens on Mila Kunis and Elisabeth Moss, the glittery extravaganza on Olivia Wilde – it was a feast of epic proportions for fashion lovers world wide.

    Unfortunately the same novelty or diversity was absent in the makeup department. Star after star walked the red carpet wearing the oft repeated red lipstick or a nude one almost always accompanied by an overdose of mascara or a smokey eye. They all looked very pretty but I, for one was disappointed about the lack of fun and color on their gorgeous faces. May be its time stars realize there is more to makeup than a gilded or smokey eye and a red or nude lip ! May be next time around they will take a more risqué route ? Je wonder...

    That being said, here is a medley of the reds vs. the nudes. Do you have a clear favorite?

Look Sunkissed Not Sun Drenched !

    Ever gone over board with the bronzer ? These small tips might help ya out with it, this winter! Also check out the article on Vogue India.

    Bronzer might be the single most widely bought / used makeup product in the summers but its real magic is brought to light only in winters. Imagine pale dead skin transforming into a healthy complexion, tinged to spring-y perfection – the mighty bronzer can do all that.

    And this.

    Overdoing the bronzer can be disastrous – red carpet or not. Key is to dust the bronzer along the contours of your face instead of applying it all over.

    Start off with a light dusting along your hairline. Follow with drawing the infallible 3 on the side of your face – Start above your temple, pull into the hollow of your cheek and out onto your jaw line. Remember the 3 - this will be your secret weapon for everything from killer cheek bones, effortless contouring to the faux glow. Follow the three with a light dusting of the bronzer on the bridge of your nose. Now without dipping your brush into your bronzer, run it along your neck – you don’t want a pale neck on your gorgeous sun kissed face!

Rachel McAdams Does Yellow Eyeliner !!!

    Rachel wouldn't figure in my top five list of people to sport yellow eyeliner. I do have the said list and I'll tell you this - it features Gwen Stefani, Blake Lively may be but not Rachel McAdams.

    In real life however,Rachel went with the yellow liner at the premiere of her movie - Morning Glory and looked fabulous while at it !

    Is this something you're thrilled about ? Are you itching to sport a similar look ? If you are then the M.A.C Pro Acrylic Paint in Primary Yellow is what you should get. Its this exact shade of bright sunny yellow - oh it making me feel warm already !

Katy Perry's Hairstyle At People's Choice Awards : How To ?

    Katy Pery's luscious curls were styled by Danilo, Pantene Celebrity Stylist. I love the curls - wish my hair would do that ! Looks so bouncy and fun ! Congrats to Katy for winning Favorite Female Artist and Favorite Online Sensation last night!

    "Danilo created a beautiful classic body set on Katy, a style that “she always loves so much.” They decided on full waves to complement her strapless Betsey Johnson dress for a “sophisticated, cutie-pie” style for the evening.

    Katy arrived on the scene with freshly washed, towel-dried hair so Danilo had a clean base for styling. He first lightly misted her hair with the Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Heat Protection & Shine Spray to wet and condition, then focused on prepping her roots for the voluminous style by spraying them with the Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Root Lifter Spray Gel.

    Danilo then blew her hair out and, once dried, rubbed a small dollop of the Pantene Pro-V Restore Beautiful Lengths Smoothing Balm section-by-section before he applied heat from the curling iron. He used a medium-sized curling iron to set each section and sprayed the Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Professional Level Style Shaping Hairspray over the set before letting it cool for five minutes. He then released her hair, brushed it gently, and “let her hair fall very full and wavy.” He parted her hair to the side with lift in the front, and left her remaining curls big and loose for the final finish."

Hair Trends To Umm... Try ?

    Nicki Minaj's Rainbow Tips - I don’t think I see myself ever dipping my raven hair in yellow or pink. But then I’ll never know – they say quarter life crisis does different things to different people. So I’ll hold off commenting on that.

    On Nicki it’s a whole another game – she can get away with it, no crisis needed.

    Mel B’s Partly Shaved Partly Cut Do - Not going anywhere near this. Probably just not the best look for a single, 26 year old girl like me. Mel B clearly looks happy with her choice!

    Hair Extensions - I used to be able to like them and thought they had a good purpose but then Taylor Momsen happened. And then I cut my hair short.

    Also catch the article on Vogue India .

    On a side note - amazing how everything I write reflects what's happening in maa life yo ! Birthday in five days - Twenty seven ! Say what ?
