Go Red Carpet Glam With Make-Up Tips From Sonia Kashuk
STUDIO CITY (CBS) — Glam up your look this weekend in for the Golden Globes!
Make-up artist Sonia Kashuk visited the KCAL 9 studios Friday to demonstrate a Golden Globe-worthy look.
Awards season is not just a time when we honor the hard work and achievements of the best in the industry, it is also the anticipated moment of when a star’s style culminates in a show-stopping ensemble. On the red carpet, everyone wants to look new and relevant in today’s hottest fashion and beauty trends with a glamorous twist, so a lot of what we are going to see this year will be a variation on this season’s biggest trends.
Lips will take center stage and with the retro trend in full swing, there will be a lot of rich bordeauxs and deep bright reds reminiscent of the 70’s and 80’s. Color and sparkle will be big this year with the focus on metallic and jewel tones. Of course there will be many starlets sporting the timeless look of a beautiful nude face as well.
Sonia loves a cleaner, more natural face on the red carpet because it is fresh, modern and universally flattering. The first step to getting this look is creating flawless skin. Once your “canvas” is smooth and primed, cover imperfections and even out tone with a luminous foundation. She is a big believer that dewy radiance is always better than matte, flat skin. Use a highlighter, such as my Super Sheer Shimmering Highlighter, along the top of the cheekbones to catch the light and create a beautiful glow. A think a major trend we’ll see on the red carpet this season is a strong mouth with a soft, delicate eye. When you’re focusing on the mouth, keep the eye subtle by using a wash of shimmering color, such as any of the shades in my Eye Shadow Quad in Showstoppers, over lids, keeping application light and sheer. Flush out cheeks, applying blush to the apples in a circular motion, working your way back towards the hairline. Then choose a bright red or pink lip color to make the face pop – Sonia loves a matte red like my Velvety Matte Lip Crayon in Rosey Nude. The trick with a bold lip color is to make sure it is not overly defined which will look dated. Avoid this by using your fingertips to blur the lip line.
While every celebrity will have their own customized look from head to toe during awards show season, you can bet on one thing for them all to have in common is lashes! No red carpet face is complete without the extra drama of false eyelashes and no matter what aesthetic you are trying to achieve, throwing on a pair of lashes is sure to wow.
