Last night MomTrends and I hosted an exciting “What’s in my clutch?” P & G Beauty Twitter party as we watched the stars arrive for the 70th annual Golden Globes and I have to say, Hollywood sure brought it’s A -game! There were so many stunning gowns, and the hair and make-up was nothing shirt of perfection.
The biggest trend of the night was the contrast between light and dark! We saw many classic black dresses but so many celebrities were also wearing beautiful nude toned dresses. The hair and make-up also followed this trend. The lips were either dark and matte for a dramatic look or they were natural with heavy shine. The eyes were dark and dramatic or more natural and soft.
For hair we saw a lot of big curls or waves and hair pulled to the side for a very Old Hollywood vibe. I typically love it when the hair is pulled back away from the face but some of the ladies really rocked the straight and sleek look last night. I especially loved all the bangs we saw. We didn’t see as many up-do’s this year, for the most part it was softer and more playful hair styles.
No matter if you are walking the Red Carpet in Hollywood or hitting up your own special event here are my must-have beauty picks for a special night out with or without George Clooney;)
3 Beauty Must haves before the big night….
It’s all in the eyes and COVERGIRL Clump Crusher by LashBlast Mascara gives lashes 200% more volume and no clumps, guaranteeing your eyes pop on the red carpet or your next big event. I tried this mascara for the first time this weekend as I headed out to a Hollywood party and I loved it, it went on smooth and no clumping. My eyelashes had just the right amount of drama.
Probably one of the most important things to put on before a night out is deodorant. If you want to stay dry all night than the Secret Clinical Strength Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant in Light and Fresh: is the only one you need! This is honestly the only deodorant I use. It is clinically proven and doctor-endorsed to provide prescription strength wetness protection. It contains the maximum level of anti-perspirant active offered without a prescription as well as odor-fighting microcapsules, and skin soothing conditioners to keep you fresh all night long.
Keep that hair in place with Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Touchable Volume Hairspray: a non-Aerosol hairspray that delivers flexible hold to fine hair and adds shine without leaving hair stiff or sticky. This leaves that fabulous red carpet ‘do in place all night long. I have fine hair and I can use all the volume I can get! I use Pantene shampoo and conditioner to get my hair silky and shiny and then I use the the Pantene Pro-V volume spray to hold my hair naturally in place.
