Illamasqua's favourite looks from the Golden Globes

This year at the Golden Globes we watched the stars as they came together, crossed the red carpet and dared to be different. The British films stole the spotlight on the night with many awards celebrating the fantastic British films that are coming through this year. Here at Illamasqua HQ we have chosen a few of our favourite looks from the 2012 awards...

Emma Stone
Emma Stone wore a beautiful column dress in contrasting shades of aubergine and scarlet, belted in with an embellished belt with a suggestive split, which was both regal and alluring. Her hair let the clothes do the talking and a cat-like grey smoky eye emphasised her beautiful blue eyes. We’re definitely going to take inspiration from her look and experiment with a cool silver shade such as Powder Eye Shadow in Soul, deepened in the socket line with Powder Eye Shadow in Gimp, with Liquid Metal in Surge to line the bottom eye lids.

Kelly Osborne
We've been inspired by Kelly's silver toned hair, her look, statement and eye catching, has had us rethinking the dip dye trend of 2011 and favouring a more striking set. We admire Kelly's dare to be different attitude and her make-up complimented the look with dramatic lashes, deep smouldering eyes and a rose based lip. Our new mascara, 'Masquara', lengthens and dramatises the lashes for a similar effect.

Angelina Jolie
Timeless and effortless, the vintage pin up look is never amiss on a red carpet event such as the Golden Globes and Angelina stunned in ivory and red this season. Defined brows, a flawless complexion and a sultry scarlet lip ensured Angelina’s alter ego for the event, the screen siren, stole the spotlight at the awards. Try our Skin Base Foundation, Eye Brow Cake in Thunder, Medium Pencil in Sophie and Lipstick in Drench for this statement look. This look was a favourite with our Head of Professional Development, Spob

Mila Kunis
Here at HQ we love how Mila has rocked this classic, seductive look. Opting for an effortlessly chic floor length black dress and slicked back hair, Mila epitomises the Black Swan look of last year. A neutral palette complimented Mila's timeless look with a bronzed smoky eye and soft blush lip. To create a similar, flawless finish, we suggest using a hint of Pure Pigment in Breathe on the inner corner of the high to make the eyes pop, Eye Brow Cake in Motto for a natural eye brow and Sheer Lipgloss in Artifice for added pout.
