The Golden Globes Red Carpet: Bold Lips

I love that at this year's Golden Globes ladies weren't afraid to take a risk! It seems as though there were two different makeup looks last night. There were those who dazzled the red carpet with bold and deep red and burgundy lips, and then there were those who opted for a more natural, yet polished and refined look.

Of course the more fun beauty trend to write about are the risk takers such as Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon, Kate Winslet and Sara Ramirez. I've loved reading your comments about all of these featured ladies and hearing what you think of their makeup and fashion faux pas and bravados.

  • If you are going to wear a bright lip, then you must downplay the rest of your face. Don't mix a bold lip with a bold eye. First thing's first, figure out if you look best in a cool color like a true red or a pink red if you have pale, pink skin that burns easily or a warm color like a brick or rusty red if you have olive or yellow toned skin.
  • Next, prep your skin for a flawless looking face. Skip the highlighters for this look though and try and keep your skin matte. Go light on your blush and wear very little eye makeup or else you'll wind up looking like a clown.
  • Also, just as a tip, don't let your nails or toes clash with your lip color. When in doubt, wear a neutral skin colored or light pink polish.
