The star-studded carpet at Sunday night’s 80th Annual Golden Globes Awards signalled the start of awards season. The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles played host to the red carpet, which featured a variety of glitzy celebrity beauty styles, from Julia Garner and Elizabeth Debicki’s au natural makeup minimalism to Selena Gomez’s sky-high ponytail and Jenna Ortega’s shaggy undone hair.
An purposeful lack of lips is the night’s most startling fashion trend (well, a lack of bright lips). The preferred lip style yesterday night was gentle and understated; think delicate rosey tones and ever-flattering blush shades. Most award presentations feature a Moulin Rouge red or two.
Margot Robbie, Jessica Chastain, and Daisy Edgar-Jones all chose to forgo a bold lip colour in favour of a healthy blush of skin-like pink. Daisy Edgar-Jones wore Chanel’s Rouge Allure Velvet in Intemporelle, while Jessica Chastain wore Charlotte Tilbury’s timeless Pillowtalk.
But there was one floral mauve colour that stood out as the best, and it belonged to Ana de Armas of course.
Celebrity artist Melanie Inglessis drew inspiration from the actor’s Best Actress-nominated performance as Marilyn Monroe in Blonde in order to capture De Armas’ modern character with an old Hollywood twist.
According to Inglessis, “I wanted Ana to look effortless; a combination of the sophisticated lady she is coupled with old Hollywood beauty, inspired by Marilyn Monroe.” We aimed for bright complexion that was enhanced with a pointed cat eye and a flawlessly pigmented rosy-mauve lip.
The rose-hued matte, dubbed “Stolen Heart,” is an upcoming shade from Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Lipstick Collection, an 80-shade range with extended wear that comes packaged in a vintage 1960s box that was inspired by the original Estée Lauder lipsticks of the era.
