Red Carpet Beauty with a Giveaway from Neutrogena & Walgreen’s!

It’s award season and Neutrogena and Walgreen’s have come together to help fans recreate those red carpet looks with the help of Neutrogena Brand Ambassadors. Some of my favorite items from the brand are: Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Sticks (I have them all), Healthy Custom Glow Blush & Bronzer, Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup w/SPF 20, Makeup Remover Wipes and The Rapid Repair line for skincare–to name a few!

Sunday night at the Golden Globes Kerry Washington looked gorgeous with her smoky eye and berry lips. Here’s how to get the look!


Celeb makeup artist Carola Gonzalez gave Kerry a natural-glam look for the 2015 Golden Globes this evening. She broke down the process for us:

Makeup Inspiration

Today’s inspiration sprung from the design of the dress, Greek designer Mary Katrancou, 1950′s silhouette with a modern edge. I wanted to accentuate Kerry’s eyes with a modern twist. I kept it pretty simple, a black line all around the eye layered with a shimmery dark grey eye shadow to break away from the usual black liner and add a spark to the eyes. The lips I kept sheer with a hint of color to compliment the fuchsia shade of the dress without overpowering the eyes or final look.

Cosmetic Get the Look Breakdown

To begin the Golden Globe’s makeup process, I began by prepping Kerry’s skin with Neutrogena Hydro Boost moisturizer. During winter months skin is dryer than most months, out of the year, and Neutrogena Hydro Boost moisturizer is the way to go. It’s truly a skin quencher, it adds just the right amount of moisture needed without making skin look oily. Once fully absorbed I start by highlighting under the eye area and then applying foundation all over face to even out skin: I used Kevyn Aucoin Skin Enhancer SX13.

I proceeded with Kerry’s eyes using Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner in Cosmic Black. I lined the eye all around the outer area of the eye, around lash line. Then lined the inner rim of the lower lash with the same liner. Since I wanted to give the appearance of a shimmery liner, I layered the eye liner, using a tiny brush, with the new Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear eye shadow shimmery dark silver from the Smokey Steel Palette. (the third one from the top).

To complete the eye makeup, mascara is a must! I applied a couple of coats to theupper and lower lashes with Kerry’s favorite mascara Neutrogena Healthy Lengths in Carbon Black.

For the cheeks I always like to add an extra touch of glow and color. In this case I chose Neutrogena Healthy Custom Glow Blush & Bronzer in Posie Glow. I got two shades in one, the perfect combo, to create the desired radiance and color for the look. I applied it from the apple of the cheek in an upward motion towards the temples.

The lips are always my last step, choosing the right shade is critical to the final look. Since the dress already had a vibrant color, I decided to go with a sheer berry lip to compliment the fuchsia shade of the dress. I used Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color in Bright Berry. 


Bella Thorne and Gabrielle Union , both sported makeup looks by Neutrogena when they walked the red carpet at the People’s Choice Awards.

The inspiration for Bella’s Thorne People’s Choice Awards look was modern and powerful.
We kept her skin clean and glowing using Neutrogena Skin Clearing foundation and brightened under her eyes  with the Heathy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector.  Before I do this step I always prep the skin with a great moisturizer to lock in the skin’s moisture and maintain a dewey, natural glow.  We used Bella’s staple moisturizer which is the new Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Moisturizer Pink Grapefruit which keeps your skin soft but also  treats breakouts.
We kept Bella’s eyes nude using the new Neutrogena Soft Taupe Nourishing Long Wear eye shadow pallet with built-in primer and added three coats ofHealthy Volume mascara in black with Nourishing Eye Liner in Spiced Chocolate on the top lash line.  
We set her look with highlight around her face using Neutrogena Crease Proof eyeshadow in Stay Golden on her cheekbones and bridge of nose. 
We wanted to focus on her amazing lips by contrasting a soft red coral with her black Armani power suit. Using a combination of  NARS coral lipstick  in Lana mixed with Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Bright Berry over the top.  
It’s easy to recreate Bella’s look with all of my favorite Neutrogena products available at Walgreens.

Makeup artist Fiona Stiles wanted to create a look for Gabrielle Union that was pretty and fresh for the People’s Choice Awards. A soft smokey eye balanced out a pretty soft lip with her gorgeous glowing skin. The dress was such a great vibrant color, it felt nice to do something that was a little sexy but still really pretty and approachable at the same time.
We started by prepping her skin with Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel – it absorbs quickly but keeps the skin really hydrated which is key to maintain a natural glow from the inside out.
To create this soft smokey eye we started with the Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear eye shadow pallet in Cool Plum with built-in primer and added a of couple coats of Healthy Volume mascara in black with Nourishing Eye Liner in Brushed Pewter blended into the lash line.  Their new color palettes give you a lid, crease, highlighter and liner color, which makes doing smokey eyes really easy. And to off-set her eye we went with a muted lip using Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Sweet Watermelon.  
You can easily recreate Gabrielle’s look with Neutrogena products from Walgreens.
