With awards season ahead, we couldn’t help ourselves, and made some make-up suggestions for some of the lady Golden Globe Nominees.  We think some of them could switch it up, take some risks, and some would look beautiful as ever in classic styles.  Scroll down for our picks, and then tune in to your favorite red carpet coverage this Sunday to see what the stars choose.

Amy Adams Golden Glam.   Amy Adams, the gorgeous red-head, would look stunning in this gilded gold eye paired with a classy nude lip.  She is known for her roles in Enchanted, Man of Steel, and The Fighter.  She is nominated for Best performance by an actress in a motion picture- comedy or musical for “American Hustle”.  Topping her eyes off with some gold glitter (try using M.A.C.’s pressed pigment in Damson) will make her bold blue eyes pop!  Pairing the gold eyes with a nude lip gloss, like Sweet Dreams from NARS, would class up the look without being overpowering with her glam eyes!

Cate Blanchett, nominated for the film “Blue Jasmine”, wears very natural makeup. Glowing skin will highlight her features without looking like she is wearing too much make-up. She is very fair, so anything more than a nude lip will overwhelm her make-up look. Cate also has very bright blue eyes, so a light shimmer over the eyelid with mascara or fake eyelashes will make her eyes pop, while still enhancing her natural beauty. By R.G.



Jennifer Lawrence often wears dark eyes and a nude lip to award shows, but considering the hottest make-up trends from Spring 2014 fashion week, a red lip is something JLaw should definitely consider for this award season!

This make-up look would look amazing on Julie Delpy at the Globes on Sunday! By V.B.



This spring make-up would look great on Kerry Washington, nominated for her role in the television show “Scandal”. She usually experiments with lip color and has neutral eye shadow. This look shows a bit more eye color than Kerry Washington usually wears, with a nude lip for an updated, and fashion forward look.  By A.C.



Although Sally Hawkins, nominated for a supporting role in “Blue Jasmine”, usually wears a more subtle lip, she would also look great with a dramatic red lip for a change. By C.F.

Blue eye make-up and opaque nude lipstick is trending this spring. This would be a good look for Sofia Vergara, nominated for her role in “Modern Family”.

Tatiana Maslany is a phenomenal actress, as demonstrated by her work on “Orphan Black” (on which she plays 7 different characters!).  She often wears a small amount of black eyeliner, but I think she would look amazing with extreme amounts of black “rebel” eyeliner, which was very popular on the Spring/Summer 2014 runways. Kristin Wayne (whose website is here: http://cms.kristinwayne.com ) has put black eyeliner on Tatiana before, and I think this is the logical next step for Tatiana’s evolving look. By S.B.

One more suggestion for Tatiana Maslany: she would be even more devastatingly hot with a mixture of pastel purple shadow and inky liner to enhance her brown eyes and help them stand out against her dark hair.  By A.D.



Zooey Deschanel: undisputed queen of quirk.  Known not only for her role on “New Girl”, but her for her bold, beautiful, blue eyes as well.  A wash of of pale blue would accentuate her natural cerulean hue without overpowering her smile. Revlon ColorStay Lip Liner would provide a perfect, matte finish.  A modern twist on a classic look–so Zooey!  With polished skin to top it all off, Zooey would surely smolder at this Sunday’s Golden Globes. But can the Queen of Cuteness ever look bad? By E.L.

This Week’s Inspiration:  Unconventional Models!

In our studies, we are looking to the fashion world for companies and models who are breaking down the sterotypical look of late; a look that represents a painfully too-thin and unrealistic physicality, a look that women should not be trying to replicate or compare themselves to.  

We sought out stories about models who changed their careers because their health was in danger, models who have physical disabilities that did not stop them from modeling, and all around beautiful creatures who defy what a “standard” of beauty is, and create their own.

Above:  British actress and model Gwendolyn Christie is currently best known as the Amazonian warrior Brienne of Tarth in HBO’s series “Game of Thrones”.  She is also a prolific model and actress, and is shown above in a shoot for Work-Love Magazine, Elle Magazine, and Ponystep.  Below that, she is shown as Brienne of Tarth in GOT.  The final image is from a series done with Polly Borland, portrait photographer.

Gwendolyn is an unconventional model and actress, as her 6'4" stature makes her non traditional against the standard leading man or male model. We simply find her stunning, and, more importantly, a brilliant actress.  Post by C.S.


THIS MONTH’S INSPIRATION: ERTE!  Born Romain de Tirtoff in 1982, the artist known as Erte is an inspiration to costume designers everywhere, and an illustrator who produced some of the most universally recognized renderings from the turn of the 20th Century and 1920′s.  You can find his work for theater, fashion and magazines permeating the internet.  We are especially inspired by him as we work on our Upper Middle School Play production of “As You Like It”, running the first week of May.

This is the most iconic album cover of David Bowie’s career and this photo goes down in history as the most unusual and glamorous celebrity shoot of all time. David rocks a neon lightning streak across his face that is way ahead of his time. The shoot from 1973 may go down in the vintage archive but his makeup will alway be fresh!  Click the image to read more about the V&A’s Exhibition from 2013, David Bowie Is. Post by K.D.

This painting, called “The Last Judgement”, was made by Hieronymus Bosch in 1482. In the left panel, he depicts the Garden of Eden, with God sitting on top, and Adam and Eve inside the Garden. In the center panel, the souls are being judged by Jesus, and on the right, the wicked are being punished in Hellscape. Post by G. B-H
