Preparation for The Golden Globes - L'Oreal Beauty, Jewels, Fashion and More, Oh My

The 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards will be telecast live on NBC Sunday, January 11 (8 – 11 p.m. EST) at The Beverly Hilton. L’Oreal Paris consulting makeup artist Collier Strong has released his official red carpet makeup trends, which I'm pleased to bring you below. Also this year, L’Oreal Paris and jeweler Carelle have teamed up to create these GORGEOUS red carpet compacts. They are gifting the Best Actress in a Comedy and in a Drama nominees with them - oh, you lucky ladies! One of these compacts is going to be auctioned off exclusively following the Golden Globes through eBay Giving Works to benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

Collier Strong, celebrity makeup artist and consulting makeup artist for L'Oreal Paris, shows us the secrets of perfect eye shadow application. This video shows two examples of eyeshadow application. First a dramatic eye look and then a more subtle, neutral look. Watch this how to video from L'oreal Paris and you will be able to apply your eyeshadow like a pro. Want more from Collier; check out his official forecast of red carpet beauty trends for the Golden Globes.

L'Oreal Paris and The Golden Globes 2009: Red Carpet Beauty Trends

Trend 1
Focus On The Lips

“It’s all about a beautiful bold lip! Whether it’s warm or cool, a bold, opaque, red lip has a very sexy yet romantic feel. The eyes are as glamorous or neutral as your wardrobe dictates. During the day, eyes are kept simple; at night, opt for a darker look. Either way, eye makeup should be blended beautifully and brows should be perfectly groomed for an elegant look. Finish the eyes with long, beautiful lashes. Pair this look with clean, glowy makeup, achieved with foundation, concealer and powder. For cheeks, use a complementary color to the red of the lip that works with your skin tone. Apply on the apples of the check for a pop of color.” – Collier Strong, Consulting Makeup Artist, L’Oréal Paris

Trend 2
Eyes…Use Color!

“Whether it’s a wash of color or a bold, dark statement, using color on the eyes looks gorgeous. Try a beautiful violet, blue or dark purple, or coordinate your eye color with your clothing. Try using color on the upper lids only, or on the upper lids and under the lower lash line. You can even add a hint of color on the inner corners and under the eye…just make sure the edges are blended out beautifully. Think of watercolors and softness…that’s what makes this color work! Use a complementary lip and cheek color for softer eye makeup shades and a transparent lip and cheek look when using bolder eye colors.” – Collier Strong, Consulting Makeup Artist, L’Oréal Paris

Trend 3
It’s All About The Metallics!

“I love a dark, dramatic, metallic eye in black, dark brown, navy or burgundy. It’s very sexy and a great look for an evening party or event. Start with a dark liner that matches your shadow at the base of the lash. Apply a dark metallic shadow on the lid, up to the crease. Lightly run a little metallic shadow under the lower lashes. Use a lighter metallic shadow on the brow bone and on the inner corners of the eye. For a really shimmery effect, you can add an extra highlighter over the entire eyelid. Finish the eyes with dramatic, sweeping lashes. Pair this look with matte, satin skin and keep lips and cheeks very neutral.” – Collier Strong, Consulting Makeup Artist, L’Oréal Paris

I also MUST draw your attention to the fabulous gowns by Temperley of London (you all know I adore Alice Temperley's creations) and Marchesa in particular that Carolyn at the delightful Bloomacious is talking about for potential Golden Globes fashion. You simply have to check out this article - I'm drooling over those dresses.

And if that's not enough news, the adorable and savvy Tammy of A Mom in Red High Heels is basking in the glow of celebrity stars and makeup, hair, fashion, etc all day in the HBO Luxury Lounge at the Beverly Hills Four Seasons Hotel, bringing us live blogging coverage throughout the day about what’s going on with L’Oreal Paris and the Golden Globes. Oh, the life of A Mom in Red High Heels ...

Check back here over the next few days too; we'll be talking more about L'Oreal Paris, Collier Strong and their collaboration with the Golden Globes event this year.
