Golden Globes 2013

Posted on 01/14/2013

These are the days we here at b-glowing live for- the kick-off to award season and the always entertaining red carpet!

We noticed more hits than misses last night. Overall, we thought people played it safe and of course, so glam... 

Here were our TOP 3 makeup and hair looks of the evening:
 

 

Kate Hudson
We love this look from head to toe. Her hair and makeup are flawless. The subtle highlights on her 
cheekbones and bridge of her nose make give her radiance and highlight her natural beauty. 
 
Kerry Washington
This is a super playful use of color that just peeks out from behind her edgy bangs. We adore that cheek color on her
skin tone and her natural lip make it all about the eyes without overwhelming the look. 
 
Jessica Alba
Classic beauty with a hot orange twist! We LOVE this lip color on Jessica’s olive skin. 
The soft curls with a deep part frame her face perfectly.

Oscars 2013 - Best Of Fashion & Beauty

Posted on 02/25/2013

Although my jaw didn’t drop in awe and amazement at last nights Oscars there were a few fashion moments that caught my attention and could tell put a lot of effort into their overall look. Unlike Miss Kristen Stewart who looked like she walked through a hurricane before she came out on stage to present, many ladies pulled out their Hollywood glamour card, bare decollete, Veronica Lake curls and all. Here are some of my favorite fashion/beauty moments of the night.

The beautiful Jessica Chastain has been compared to a young Meryl Streep for her poise and humbleness and you can tell that this girl loves fashion and understands what these award shows are all about. She’s looked amazing all award season and last night she wowed in a nude, figure hugging Armani Prive gown complimented with a red slip and vintage waves. Definitely my favorite ‘hair and makeup’ look of the night, she was a winner even though she didn’t take home the golden statue.

Maybe you have to be a 5’ 10” former model with a statuesque figure like Charlize Theron to pull off her all white Dior Haute Couture dress but I think it all came down to the flattering nature of her gorgeous and extreme pixie cut. Her body looked amazing but all eyes went straight to her exquisite bare décolletage and curve of neck. She is one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood so doesn’t need a lot of makeup so I love that she kept it very minimal with light pink cheeks and lips.

Another dream in white was Zoe Saldana. This fashionista never disappoints on a red carpet and she certainly didn’t last night in an Alexis Mabille floor length gown. Although I died over the top half of the dress, I didn’t love the bottom part featuring a sweeping hem exposing several different colors. However, she is just so beautiful and her romantic waves and simple tear drop earrings really pulled the whole ensemble together for me. I bet she made Bradley Cooper think twice about their split!

Of all the glitz encrusted dresses seen on the red carpet I have to say I thought best actress nominee Naomi Watts dazzled in a greyish-silver custom made Armani Prive gown. This dress was tailored to perfection and I loved the bare shoulder cut-out design! A dress like this doesn’t leave a lot of room for accessorizing so I’m glad she kept it simple with a perfectly placed messy up do and rosy cheeks.

There you have it! My picks of the night with special kudos to Mrs Michelle Obama, Octavia Spencer who was a dream in blush nude, and Amy Adams who rocked a light gray ruffled tulle dress. Until next award season, I bid you a fond and fashionable farewell!
