 Kerry Washington at the 2013 Golden Globes

Makeup
Makeup Artist Carola Gonzalez created the makeup look for Kerry Washington at the 2013 Golden Globes. Carola complemented Kerry’s Miu Miu gown and blunt bangs look with a bold eye – purple was the star shade – and a muted lip.

Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24H Foundation in “Suede N 450″
Lancôme Blush in “Pommettes D’Amour” (New)

Lips

Hair
Celebrity hairstylist Marcus Francis was inspired by Kerry’s sequined, structured gown. Here are the steps he took to create her sleek and classic look, using products from John Frieda:

Step 1 – Prep

Spray Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Styling Spray ($9.99 at drugstores), throughout wet hair and comb through to distribute the product evenly.

Step 2 – Style

Blowdry hair straight. Take a flat iron and straighten hair section by section–the heat of flat iron will activate 3-Day Straight, to ensure sleek style that lasts all night long.

Step 3 – Perfect

Smooth Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Crème ($5.99) throughout hair to give a smooth, shiny finish.

Foreign Beauty Friday: Lancome G50 “Last Night” eyeshadow

*I am lucky enough to know people overseas that send me things. I also have friends and family that travel, so I harrass them make sure they bring me back goodies.

Funny story – The lovely Blogdorf Goodman got me lemming the cult eyeshadow “Erika F” that is not available here in the US. So when my BFF told me that she was going to France, I *knew* this was my opportunity to finally get my grubby hands on it.

So, I armed my friend with a picture of “Erika F” that I had thieved from Pink Sith as an easy reference tool, to help her find this beauty. Unfortunately, the watermark that Pink uses (*the helmet) confused the salesgirl, who thought that my BFF was looking for a limited edition product and that the helmet was part of the case! So, the closest thing they could come up with was the “G50 – Last Night” eyeshadow. Which, turns out, is a glorious grey shadow that I will get more use out of than that stupid olive/silver “Erika F” shadow that I would have just cherished and tucked away in a box, never to see the light of day again. (*she says justifying the fact that she will never have it after all, pouting all the day).

The Magnifique Box (+ a Giveaway!!)

During my trip to NYC, I was so lucky to have some of the nicest weather imaginable. It made for strolling along the streets at night so much better. Saturday night, we were wandering around the Lower East Side, we passed by “The Box” nightclub. Now, I may have been rocking my Dolce & Gabbana smokey eye, but I sure was not dressed to go into the nightclub – as much as I would have loved to (I adore old style vaudville/burlesque times). So, the closest I have come to seeing the inside of it is thru the commercial that the lovely Anne Hathaway recently did for Lancôme’s new fragrance, “Magnifique”.
anne hathaway magnifique The Magnifique Box (+ a Giveaway!!)Anne shot the video in March, after working with a choreographer for a week prior. There were 100 extras and she was styled by Rachel Zoe for the shoot. You can see the video on the Lancôme’s blog, where you can also read about Kerry Diamond’s thoughts from the shoot that day. (*If you go directly to the “Magnifique” page you can see a second version of Anne’s commercial, but it doesn’t have near the fancy footwork as the first one.)

And, as a treat for all my reader Lovelies, I get the chance to give away one (1) bottle of this fragrance, because I missed you guys so much while I was gone. I’ll start the giveaway today, and let it go until Midnight(cst) next Wednesday, June 3rd. I will announce the winner on Thursday, June 4th. I’ll even make it super simple for you – just enter your name and email addy in the box below. That’s it. Easy peasy.
