Singer Jennifer Lopez cut a fine figure at the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards. The beautiful actress showed off her toned arms in a golden, plunging Marchesa dress, which she paired with a neat bun, lush lashes, and creamy pink blush. So, if you’re crushing on J.Lo’s red carpet look, follow our tips below to master the look at home.

Step 1:

Before you apply your makeup, master a smooth, dewy base. Begin with cleansing and thoroughly moisturising your face. For a glowing base, apply a good primer to cover the fine lines and large pores.

Step 2:

The second step is to even out your skin tone. We suggest you to opt for a natural or a light coverage foundation rather than opting for heavy coverage – like Revlon PhotoReady Makeup. Use a good flat brush and blend the foundation to master a smouldering look.

Step 3:

Next, apply a Chantecaille Total Concealer to cover the blemishes.

Step 4:

To recreate a perpetual sun-kissed glow, dust Glam Bronze Duo 102 Brunette Harmony over the outer planes of your face. You can also apply a peachy blush (try Josie Maran Cream Blush in Sunset) to the apples of your cheeks for that perfect colour.

Step 5:

For a dramatic look, trace your upper and lower lash lines with Shum Uemura Calligraph: Ink Liquid Eyeliner.

Step 6:

Lengthen your lashes by wiggling two coats of Dolce & Gabbana Passion Eyes Mascara.

Step 7:

Put the finishing touches on your JLo inspired look by applying a nude lip colour. We recommend Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Nudes Hint Of Pink By Doutzen.

Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has upped her Cannes wardrobe game once again as she glided down the red carpet in a golden Roberto Cavalli gown. The gorgeous star matched her stunning fishtail gown with a bold red lip, flawless skin and lush Hollywood waves. Get Aish’s Cannes look by following our tutorial below.

Step 1:

To achieve this look, begin by applying a primer – we suggest Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer SPF15. This will leave a smooth finish and help you keep your makeup in place all day long.

Step 2:

Next, take a stippling brush (this will help you create a flawless effect) and apply a fully coverage foundation – like Laura Mercier Oil-Free Supreme Foundation – to the tops of your cheekbones, chin, nose and forehead.

Step 3:

Once done applying your foundation, contour your cheeks with Sephora Collection Contouring 101 Face Palette. Use the darker shade on your cheekbones and chin, and the lighter hue on your forehead, across the bridge of your nose and cheeks. Now, blend, blend, and blend it well.

Step 4:

To mimic Aishwarya’s breathtaking eyes, define your upper and lower lash lines with Superliner Gel Eyeliner-Super Liner 24h Waterproof Gel Eyeliner.

Step 5:

Next, draw your eyes open with double coats of L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara to your upper and lower lashes.

Step 6:

Nothing beats a refined makeup look tamed with a bold red lip. To recreate Aishwarya’s look at home, line and fill in your lips with Lancome Le Crayon in Berry. Now take a small lip brush and your favourite deep red shade, like Lancome Rouge In Love Lipstick, and swipe it across your lips.

So quickly run and try these two different makeup looks that will match your gold dress. Let us know your favourite look in the comments section below!
