This year the Golden Globes red carpet was an assortment of dazzling dresses, pretty colors, and terrific designers. From the gorgeous blue Marchesa on Amy Adams, the fuchsia Lanvin on Julianne Moore, a variety of blush pinks, the exquisite emerald greens on Mila Kunis and Elisabeth Moss, the glittery extravaganza on Olivia Wilde – it was a feast of epic proportions for fashion lovers world wide.

Unfortunately the same novelty or diversity was absent in the makeup department. Star after star walked the red carpet wearing the oft repeated red lipstick or a nude one almost always accompanied by an overdose of mascara or a smokey eye. They all looked very pretty but I, for one was disappointed about the lack of fun and color on their gorgeous faces. May be its time stars realize there is more to makeup than a gilded or smokey eye and a red or nude lip ! May be next time around they will take a more risqué route ? Je wonder...

That being said, here is a medley of the reds vs. the nudes. Do you have a clear favorite?

Look at heidi klum rocking that orange! If I look at lippies alone, I like her and halle berry :)

Love the reds. Their make up look more stunning than the nudes. (^.^)

Agreed.. Nothing really stood out for me this year. Oh well, better luck next year.

i feel deja vu like we've seen the same looks on all them before (with the exception of J.Lo) but i do like malin ackerman, heidi klum and sandra bullock. I hate to say this, but Eva Longoria's makeup makes her look pale and sick

Hello Indian Girl!!!

I just saw your blog and i love it. I have also made one...if you could please support my blog, that would be very greatly appreciated.

I am Pakistani myself, but light skinned and seemed to find it next to impossible for women of my skin color (NC25 in reference to MAC) to find stuff that matches our skin tone and thought, hey why not make a blog!

anyway, please check it out and comment!

Love JLo's makeup look!

love Sandra Bullock in the former, and Christina Hendricks in the latter. J-Lo loves to wear makeup in a style that really does nothing for her. She's beautiful but needs to change her makeup style!

malin ackerman and (i hate to say) kim kardashian look GORGEOUS too.
