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.”
