As Seen by the Muse: Spotted Chanel at the Golden Globes

The Muse is busy getting the scoop on the Golden Globes this morning as I wasn’t home to watch it last night plus..pssttt…between you and me, I’m not all that big a fan of award shows, the corny jokes just make me yawn even when Ricky is the one doing the tellin’. I did record the entire thing so I can skip through really quickly or watch and rewind RDJ (Robert Downey, Jr) in all his dry wit proceeding to thank no one, god that man is hotness on a stick.

Although I will share with you, As seen by the Muse, some looks spotted on the red carpet created by Chanel.

Have a little jump!

Sandra Bullock, Cameron Diaz, Kate Hudson, Jennifer Garner, and January Jones were all wearing Chanel. The looks created are exactly what I associated with the brand. Nothing dramatic but plenty of old Hollywood glam that was displayed with bold red lips or a focus on the eyes.

I personally did not like Nicole Kidman’s look as her brows seem very strong however her makeup was flawless. The look was created by Makeup Artist Angela Levin and focused on an old Hollywood look. Her eyes were created using Chanel Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Jungle, Bois Bleu, and Le Bronze. The dramatic curl of her lashes were created using two coats of Chanel Inimatable Mascara in Noir. She wore Chanel Powder Blush in Love on her cheeks and Chanel Rouge Allure Lasque in Santal on her lips.

Sandra Bullock’s look was created by Angela as well and according to her was an inspiration of Sandra’s happy, free spirited mood. I got a bit of a glam feel to it with an emphasis on her eyes and natural lips so as not to overpower the rest of the look.

Her eyes were a mix of Chanel Silky Eyeshadow Duos in Orient Express and Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Trace. For added drama her eyes were lined with Chanel Long Lasting Eyeliner in Voiline which is a deep, rich purple. On her cheeks she sports Chanel Tweed Blush Duo in Tweed Rose and Chanel Rougue Coco Lip Colour in Beige Felin on her lips.

Jennifer Garner’s look was created by makeup Arist Katie Lee and was inspired by Jennifer’s dress which was a nude colour with beads which were pink and silvery. Since Jennifer’s dress was such a nude shade and contrasted lovely with her darker hair, Katie Lee broke out a bolder shade of lip color to add a bit more pop to the look!

On her eyes she’s sporting Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow in Kaska Beige
On Jen’s eyes I used CHANEL Quadra Eye Shadow in Kaska Beige and Chanel Long Lasting Eyeliner in Expresso. Her eyes were finished up with Chanel Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir. Her cheeks were created with a combination of Neutrogena Mineral Sheer Cheek Colours in Apricot, Safe, and Rare Rose (ha who would have thought to see Neutrogena cosmetics on the red carpet) and finally her lips sport Chanel Rouge Cock in Rouge Orage for an intense pink pout.

Cameron Diaz’s look was created by makeup Artist Robin Fredriksz who also wanted to go with an old Hollywood look due to Cameron’s dress style. Heavy emphasis was placed on Cameron’s lips with a bold shade of red.

Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow in Mystic Eyes and darker peach and gold mixed together from the Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow Quad in Demure created Cameron’s eye look. Her eyes are lined and defined with Chanel Precision Eye Definer in Khaki Dore and finished with a few coats of Chanel Inimitable Mascara in Noir. And her bold lips sport Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Dragon.

Kate Hudson’s look was created by Makeup Artist Leslie Lopez who’s look was created to compliment the clean, sophisticated look of Kate’s dress.

Kate is actually sporting L’Oreal True Match Foundation in N-3, ha, cool right? Another drugstore moment on the red carpet! Her eyes were created using Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow in Blue Celestes. Her eyes were completed by lining them with Almay Black Eye Pencil and Chanel Inimitable Mascara in Noir. Chanel Aqualumiere Sheer Colour Lipshine in Malta is a sheer subtle hint of peach that finished up Kate’s completed look!

January Jones was my favorite of the night as hey I’m a headband kinda girl too! I thought the black ribbon they placed around her up swept hair was both fun, elegant, and quite fitting with her dress. Her look was created by Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin who took a fresh approach to the classic red lip you see January sporting.

Her look is probably the simplest of the ones featured here. The glow you see on her skin was created using Le Blanc de Chanel under her base to create that luminous glow from within. On her lips she sports Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Paris which is a new line launching in March. Her eyes were lined with Chanel Automatic Liquid Eyeliner in Noir and completed with Chanel Intense Eye Pencil in Graphite for the lower eye area. She sports Exceptionnel de Chanel Noir Obscur Mascara for intense, dramatic lashes.

What do you think of these looks created by Chanel?

Anyone of them on your best beauty dressed hit list?

I thought January Jones looked stunning! Kate Hudson looked lovely as well but I wasn’t into her hair.

    Nicole Kidman’s makeup was not flawless! I was so disappointed in it because there was what looked like a streak of bronzer or something near her chin and her lip looked weird. I’m so sad because I’ve always loved her flawless looks, but lately there have been so many mishaps. I wonder if its because shes rushed or something….

    • the Muse

      hey shelia the pics I seen she looked very nice in! but I didn’t watch the actual show yet so it could be less than flawless on my telly :-D! but I thought her brows were REALLY strong which I hated. I imagine any mishaps including wardrobes is b/c they are rushed and totally stressed and wriggling around in their chairs while being done up. I could just imagine the pressure!

  • Samantha

    Although I LOVE january jones I thought that she looked a little too washed out. My favorite beauty look of the night was probably Zoe Saldana. She looked gorgeous πŸ™‚

    • the Muse

      hi samantha I can’t think of a single time Zoe doesn’t look charming πŸ˜€ I love her blush particularly, really made her glow!

  • Marina

    I am also now writing about the looks and dresses at the Golden Globe. I think Aguilera had the best makeup as for the dresses: Marion Cottilard, Emily Blunt and Jeniffer Aniston. Jen was the most gorgeous woman of the day! She looked amazing!
    And some celebrities made me think if they actually looked at the mirror. Hmmm

  • Bakeneko

    Ooooh I so agree about Robert Downey Jr – the man is pure sex haha πŸ˜€

  • electronicfly

    Don’t you think it’ll be so cool if someone, anyone, wore stuff from like, Etude House or Skinfood or something to the GG. πŸ˜€

    • the Muse

      i’d freaking love that electronicfly! THAT would be worth watching the awards for!
