Red carpet beauty forecast: The Golden Globes
Beauty predictions for this weekend’s Golden Globe Awards.
With the 2013 awards season kicking off and the Golden Globes taking place this Sunday, January 13, there will be no shortage of glamour on the red carpet. But like any other awards season, there will likely be a variety of looks—some stunning, some appalling. What can we expect to see? L’Oréal Paris’ celeb makeup artist Billy B., celeb manicurist Tom Bachik and celeb hairstylist Johnny Lavoy share their expert predictions.

“The red carpet is no place for natural – it’s a place to make a statement,” says Billy B. “I expect to see a return to full, unapologetic glamour. I predict lots of rich black liquid eyeliner and classic matte red mouths. Think Sophia Loren.”
“Nail art is huge right now and texture/dimension is going to be everywhere in 2013 – including the red carpet,” says Bachik. “As for the shades I predict we’ll see a lot of, red (from burnt winter red to deep, rich bordeaux) is always a red carpet favorite – it’s classic but timeless. Plan on also seeing bright trend tones on the young and fashion-forward ladies who want to show a bit of personality.”
“I predict this season we’ll see throwbacks to classic Hollywood with polished waves that move,” says Lavoy. “We can also expect to see looks that are more architectural, such as bold, blunt fringe and hair that’s super sleek. As for updos, I think we’ll be seeing an element of texture incorporated into styles – like braids and twist for a bit of visual interest.”

I attended the Abercrombie and Fitch holiday-season press preview yesterday, and in between checking out the cute gear that will hit stores this November, I picked up a little nugget of information I just have to share.

We love how a new nail polish has the ability to instantly change your look and your mood with a simple swipe. While happy lime greens and aquas are ruling the five million #nailpolish Instagrams this summer, there are a variety of great colors to choose from—whether you want an office-appropriate neutral or a fun going-out shade that’ll give your LBD a punch of color.
You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
Put down the wrinkled button-down, step away from the Crocs, and open your closet. We need to talk about the new rules of casual.
Buying a brush is like getting a new smartphone: once you learn how to use it, it’s indispensable.
Surfers are the epitome of cool, laid-back American style. And if we can’t be them, at least we can copy their hair.
It’s time for bridal beauty to loosen up. Hair doesn’t have to be tightly wound, makeup perfectly contoured, and nails French manicured (on this last point, really, please don’t). You can, in fact, look gorgeously and timelessly cool at your wedding. Here’s how.
