Golden Globes, Red Lips

It was a choice of a flattering nude or stunning red lips on the 2014 Golden Globes red carpet, with Taylor Swift looking especially cute rocking the latter (her signature look).

Jennifer Lawrence also plumped for a berry red as she collected her Globe for Best Supporting Actress in American Hustle…

… whilst Cate Blanchett, winner of Best Actress (Drama) for Blue Jasmine, had a bitten red pout to complement her gorgeous black lace Armani Couture.

And whilst Emma Watson has us all gossiping about her game changing Dior outfit (think open back and… er… black leggings) she topped off the look with perfect red lips. With all eyes on those stunning mouths it’s no surprise the rest of these ladies’ make-up was kept charmingly simple.

Want Taylor’s look? Then watch this!

Kate Mara ‘House Of Cards’

As the temperatures plummeted to below freezing in London, Kate Mara shone on the red carpet for the ‘House Of Cards’ Premiere.

She opened the 2013 premiere season in a Spring Christian Dior bright yellow dress, accessorised with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, a Gilan ring, and a Plukka necklace.

A stripped back make-up for the red carpet is brave, but Kate’s beautiful fresh complexion stunned me when I first met her so I had no intention of losing that in heavy make-up.

So after applying the lightest of bases I emphasised her eyes with black eye pencil and brightened them with Spring/Summers new hot colour – copper. Lips and cheeks were flushed in naked taupe tones.

For her hair, I groomed it into a sharp side parting (a style she favours in the new tv series) then tied it into a low-slung pony tail and textured the locks into beautiful curls.

We even got into the pages of the super-cool mag Nylon with this look!

House of Cards is a political thriller available on Netflix from 1st Feb.

It’s a tv series that’s not available on TV and all 13 episodes can be downloaded immediately. Heaven for those of us who love to indulge in box sets and watch a series at our leisure.

It stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright alongside Kate and is directed by David Fincher – we’re talking ‘Fight Club’ (one of my all time fav films), Madonna’s ‘Vogue’ video & ‘The Social Network’

That’s one hell of a reason to join Netflix!
