GIVEAWAY: Red Carpet Beauty – Win The Look – Dianna Agron at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards

One of my favorite looks of the night was Glee actress Dianna Agron – her laser cut fire engine red Giles dress was a total stunner and her makeup was done by none other than Monika Blunder who has done some really interesting and BEAUTIFUL work over the years.  Monika spills the deets on what her inspiration was and a gave us a step by step how to on recreating this classic Hollywood look at home with L’Oreal Paris products.

Inspiration: For Dianna’s makeup, Monika was inspired by the spring 2012 fashion shows where the makeup was fresh but still very glamorous.  Since Dianna’s red Giles dress was so “va va voom,” Monika focused on the lips to be the stand out feature.

Step by Step How-To:

  • Monika kept Dianna’s skin simple and fresh with a bit of L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Makeup in Light Ivory to give skin a light glow
  • Since the focus was kept on her lips, only a small amount of L’Oréal Paris Magic Smooth Soufflé Blush in Celestial (Pink) was applied to the apples of cheeks
  • The bold red lip stole the show; Monika applied L’Oréal Paris Infallible Le Rouge in Bold Bordeaux for lasting shine and pigment
  • The eyes were highlighted with a hint of L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Iced Latte with Vaseline applied over it to create added shine
  • The L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner in Black was lightly applied around the rim of the eye and Monika applied several coats of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara in Black to complete the look

  • L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Makeup in Light Ivory ($10.95)
  • L’Oréal Paris Magic Smooth Soufflé Blush in Celestial ($12.95)
