Golden Globes hottest make-up looks
Smouldering eyes, super bright pouts and sparkling skin still reign supreme on the Red Carpet. So, if you love Sarah Jessica Parker’s smoky eyes or Kerry Washington’s super bold pout, here’s how to steal their look to suit you!
Kerry Washington – Bold Lips
Kerry Washington knows that screen siren glamour is as simple as a slick of mega-watt lipstick. One day she’s sporting a juicy coral gloss and the next a brick-red lipstick.
Her skin always stays really fresh and natural, which means she can push the colour on the lips and eyes without looking overly done.
So, how do you give your best Hollywood smile without lippy on your teeth? Simply put your index finger in your mouth and pull it out. Any gloss or lipstick that was on the inside rim of your lips will now be on your finger!
Get her look…Outline lips using a lip pencil that is close to your natural lip tone, and follow the natural shape of the lips. To make your lips appear fuller outline lips just outside the natural lip shape and if lips are full, line inside the natural shape to make them appear smaller.
Fill in lips with your lip liner as a long-lasting base for your lipstick and to prevent a ring forming around the mouth when lipstick fades.

Get her look… For glowing sexy skin, mix a foundation that’s one shade darker than your natural skin tone with a small squirt of your daily mosituriser.
