I've gotta hand it to Megan Fox for this hairstyle. Whether or not you're a fan of this actress or the look, it definitely seems like a hard one to pull off. From the front, it appears like any other slicked-back style, but it's actually a French twist created with two sections instead of just one.

Last night, Christina Applegate stepped out in a sunshiny, strapless Roberto Cavalli gown with gorgeous necklace to bring out the yellow hue . . . and a glowing face, too. With long bangs falling over her forehead, she chose a sophisticated yet casual style playing up her hair's short length and natural texture.
After you check out the makeup tutorial, have a look at stylist Ken Paves's tips for recreating this look at home:
- Starting with wet hair, spray Ken Paves Healthy Hair Volumizing Spray at the roots and use a blow dryer while tousling hair with fingers to create lift and add texture.
- Just before the hair is completely dry, finish the edges using a teaser-type brush (like this Spornette mixed-bristle brush).
- Once dry, add more volumizing spray and collect the hair back with a larger, mixed bristle brush – Paves chose a Mason Pearson for this part — so luxurious.
- Use hair pins to keep short hair twisted up and finish off the look with just a couple sprays of Ken Paves Healthy Hair Strong Hold Shaping Spray – don't overdo it unless you want helmet head!
You were applauding Salma Hayek's makeup and hair last night, and I've got to agree. The sexy 42-year-old (can you believe it?) mixed old Hollywood with a contemporary twist for this sophisticated look — one that was directly inspired by her Dior dress.
Nars makeup artist Matthew Vanleeuwen said, “I made her eyes the focus and added a lot of rich, jewel skin tones and fresh color to her cheeks and lips. Her look was very classic and chic, with some modern textures.” Wowza. To see what shades and techniques he chose, read more
Anne Hathaway's alabaster skin, raspberry lips, and pulled-back chignon were a hit last night. I already gave you the details on her classic makeup, and now I've got the how-to on that right-on-trend slick, chic hair. Adir Abergel of Frederic Fekkai styled Hathaway's hair with clean lines and clean texture. Take a look at his technique below:
Apply Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel ($23) from roots to ends. Next, comb hair into a very deep side part and thoroughly dry with a large round brush. Then, gather hair in a low ponytail, applying Magnifique Ultra-Light Finishing Creme ($23) for shine and texture. Secure with an elastic holder at the nape, and tuck the ponytail underneath. Some bobby pins and hair pins will keep it in place. To complete this old Hollywood look, spray it with Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray ($23).
With such a show-stopping frock, I was glad to see a simpler hairstyle not try to compete with her Reem Acra gown and floral diamond buds. Personally, I think her look is lovely, so I'm glad to share this hairstyle with you.
Taking inspiration from 70's icon Ali MacGraw, Ken Paves created her simply timeless look. The key is to keep things straight and shiny, so find out how he did it when you read more
Whether you loved it or hated it, you've got to hand it to Debra Messing for going a bit bolder with her color scheme last night, particularly when it came to those heavily lined peepers.
The founder of Lorac Cosmetics, Carol Shaw, was the makeup artist behind Messing's look. She applied sultry green and black accents, which complemented Messing's midnight blue Zac Posen gown, keeping the cheeks and lips soft and neutral. And I've got the how-to when you read more
A big winner last night (picking up Golden Globes for Best Dramatic Actress and Best Supporting Actress), Kate Winslet looked equally award-winning on the red carpet in her black YSL gown. As she accepted her statues, you may have noticed her lovely nails – that's Lippman Rhapsody in White.
Makeup artist Jillian Dempsey created this beautiful look for Kate Winslet. To find out how to re-create it at home, read more
When you're sixteen years old, the most flattering makeup is fresh and light, much like Miley Cyrus's look at the Golden Globes. Makeup artist Mai Quynh, working with Mark cosmetics, created this easy look for the teenage superstar. I like it on the red carpet, but it would be just as appropriate with jeans and a tee. Here's how to steal Miley's makeup look:
- Face: For everyday wear, stick with a tinted moisturizer that lets your skin show through. Use a sheer cheek stain (Miley wore Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Nude) on the apples of cheeks. Let your cheeks capture the light by applying luminizer or a sheer gold powder blush such as Golden Glo.
- Eyes: Create the appearance of larger eyes by sweeping shimmery eye shadow on the inner V of your eyelids. (Quynh used Shimmer Cubes in Moonlight and Shimmer Bars in Twilight on Miley.) Then, use a shimmery bronze eye shadow in the creases of the eyelid; use the same color to line the bottom lash line. Follow with black mascara.
- Lips: Quynh played up Miley's lips in two steps. First, she applied Gleamstick in Platonic, a neutral pinky brown. She followed with a sheer pink gloss — in this case, Glow Baby Glow gloss in Smooches.
It was all about the underdog last night, as Slumdog Millionaire was the big winner at the 2009 Golden Globe Awards. And the film's young star, Freida Pinto, was most definitely a winner with this look. With you calling her "gorgeous," "stunning," and "a natural beauty," you were clearly digging her total ensemble.
Want to play celebrity makeup artist at home? Well, thanks to Jeffery Paul, who created Pinto's fresh look, you can try your hand a recreating her glowing makeup using champagne, pinks, and gold accents from Jouer cosmetics:
- Eyes: Paul smudged Eye Definer in Vert ($20), a green liner with gold flecks, very close to the lashes, adding Eye Shadow in Amaretto ($20), a shimmering bronzed taupe, in the crease of the eyelid.
- Face: For a soft effect, foundation and concealer were mixed together and applied only where needed. Next, Crème Highlighter in Champagne ($20) was dabbed on the brow bone and cheekbones for shimmer and definition.
- Lips: To complete the look, Paul applied Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Monsoon $20. He pulled out that Crème Highlighter in Champagne ($20) once more, using it to bring further definition to Pinto's full lips. Multitaskers — my favorite.
Hayden Panettiere is a consistent hit on the red carpet, and most of you loved her makeup at the Golden Globe Awards. Makeup artist Amy Oresman created this look for the Neutrogena Natural Radiance Bronzer in Sunkissed, sweeping it through the crease of her eyelid, on her cheekbones, and down to her clavicle. To further warm up Hayden's face, she used a round brush to apply two shades of Neutrogena Soft Color Blush (Sunny Spice and Divine Wine) to the apples of her cheeks. If you like, finish with a soft tap of bronzer on your nose — you'll look as though you've just had an afternoon in the sun.
