So, I'm late with this post. I'm sorry, it kind of slipped my mind. I'll make it right by being more on par with the Oscars, I promise.
Anyway, this year at the GG's, there was basically a half and just less than half split in what people did with their makeup. There was only a brave few who did something else. And I can seriously say the same when it comes to hair. Where's the variety? Even though they all looked good (well, almost all of them), I wish the Hollywood starlets would take more chances when it comes to makeup and hair! But maybe, that's just me.
The groups for the evening can be divided as follows :
The fresh faced / glowy makeup look. This was sported by probably the majority of people, including Kate Hudson, Anne Hathaway, Taylor Swift, Amanda Seyfried and Sienna Miller. This is how they looked :
|I thought Sienna Miller looked slightly dull.|
|Kate Hudson's take on the glowy look.|
|Taylor looked soft and feminine, though I have to say some colour would have rounded off the look beautifully. She's young and vibrant and it should have showed.|
|Anne Hathaway was the evening's golden girl and looked stunning with her feminine makeup added to her boyish hair. A lot of people didn't like her ultra pale skin with the white dress, but I think it works.|
|Amanda Seyfried is the talk of the beauty world at the moment with her soft, glowing look.|
|I found this look slightly ageing on the usually glowing Jennifer Garner.|
|Kristen Bell added a pink lip to her look.|
The next group included those who wore smoky eyes. These could be seen n charcoals and bronzes and even some golds here and there, in different intensities, paired up with nude or coloured lips. But all were smoky eyes.
|Claire Danes wore this soft grey smoky eye paired with a pink nude lip.|
|Emily Blunt looking fantastic (as always) with her soft pink mouth and greyish brown eyes.|
|Jenny from the block wore her usual charcoal smoulder and nude lips.|
|Another actress who went for the tried and tested was Sophia Vergara, with her usual bronzed goddess look and red lips.|
|Halle Berry always looks great and it's no different with her metallic grey smoky eyes and very nude lips.|
|Jennifer Lawrence went the bronze route, paired with corally nude lips.|
The last group consists of the few women who did something different from the rest.
|Adele did what she always does, her heavily winged liner and extravagant eyelashes. She paired it off with a nude lip to bring old Hollywood back to the red carpet.|
|Zooey Deschanel opted for dark liner and coral lips.|
|Nicole Richie went for pale blue eyes and very pale nude lips. I'm not convinced by this look personally.|
|Hayden Panettiere went for a very pink, soft look.|
|Kaley Cuoco wore this vampy, dark look, which I feel aged her and drained colour from her complexion. As much as I love the actress, I really didn't like this look. Maybe if her dress hadn't been so pale?|
Anyway, what did you think of the red carpet look this year? I wonder if we'll see much of the same with the Oscars, or if someone's stylist will have a bright idea and do something else? Give me your views below in the comments!
Stay beautiful and be kind to animals,
