Want to get the red carpet yourself, we’ve got top tips on how to
Naturally voluminous lashes
The natural take of Russian lashes was showcased at last night’s event with the likes of Angelina Jolie, Reese Wetherspoon and Emma Watson presenting a fuller lash look with minimal effect.
Get the look with Nouveau Lashes latest lash innovation, SVS (Speed, Volume and Style):
Following in the footsteps of this unique lash extension treatment has been specially developed to combine the best aspects of all their treatments* but in half the time! Designed to give the full, voluminous but natural effect of Russian lashes, each extension is applied using Nouveau Lashes exclusive weight for-weight lash application technique. This unique technique has been developed to ensure the health of the natural lashes are at the forefront, meaning your own lashes aren’t damaged. Perfect for everyday wear, to give naturally short or fine lashes a boost or holidaying without the hassle of mascara!
Treatment time: 1 hour for natural, 1.5/2 hours for a fuller look. Lasts up to 2-4 weeks
Stylish and relaxed up-dos
Worn by Dakota Johnston, Halle Berry, Nicole Kidman, Emma Stone and Angelina Jolie; these celebrities showed how to enhance their natural beauty with an effortless take on wearing hair up.
Celebrity stylist and Viviscal brand ambassador Neil Moodie advises on how to nail the look at home: “There’s nothing wrong experimenting with styles – it’s fun. Why not try? A lot about putting hair up is having grip on the hair itself. Don’t have it too clean as it will be smooth and slippy. Don’t wash your hair and then try and put it up because it won’t stay. I recommend a little bit of root backcombing as this gives support as you’re putting it up.”
For more relaxed-style up-do’s, I recommend preparing the hair with Viviscal Densifying Elixir (£9.95, Feelunique.com) to add texture and volume. After towel-drying the hair, you can then pull the hair using fingers and twist upwards into a pleat. With a U pin, secure the hair at the twist create a knot shape and secure with more pins. Loosen the knot to add texture. Create whichever shape you like and keep playing with it until you have the desired effect.”
Soft sculpted cheekbones
A recurring trend seen at last night’s event showed subtle blush and sculpted cheekbones as the dominant make-up look amongst celebrities.
Celebrity & COLLECTION make-up artist Francesca Neil advises on how to achieve a soft, subtle contour: “Contouring can instantly take pounds off the face – disguising double chins, chiselling cheekbones and generally sculpting the face. For a lighter take on contouring which was shown at last night’s Golden Globe awards, try the COLLECTION Highlight, Blush and Bronze palette (£4.99, Boots) containing three wearable shades with a buildable colour pay off which can be washed over the cheekbones to enhance natural features. Sweep the contour shade below your cheekbones towards your temple, slowly build for a more defined evening look, apply the blush shade gently to the apple of the cheeks blending outwards and use the highlight for a soft looking glow.”
A-list bright smile
Bright and naturally white smiles are always a trend at red-carpet events.
For a quick fix to brighter nashers, try Rapid White’s Instant Whitening Toothpaste which leaves teeth up to 1 ½ shades whiter after one use to instantly boost your smile! (£7.99, available from Boots and Boots.com)
The brightening formula with ‘optical brightening technology’ absorbs light and increases the amount of blue light reflected from the teeth, eliminating yellow hues and enhancing whiteness to give you a brighter smile whilst being kind to your enamel. The Rapid White Instant Whitening Toothpaste is fresh mint flavoured for long-lasting fresh breath and contains fluoride to help prevent tooth decay so it can be used every day instead of your usual toothpaste.
Hydrated, glowing skin

Loved by the A-LIST and their trusted make-up artists, try the famous cult classic Weleda Skin Food (£10.95, Weleda.co.uk)
With a whole host of celebrity fans from Rosie Huntington Whitely, Adele and Victoria Beckham; it’s no wonder this multi-tasking cream has achieved cult status with one selling every 30 seconds! NATRUE certified and made with 100% natural ingredients including rosemary, pansy, chamomile and calendula extracts, Skin Food is the most useful, versatile and intensively hydrating natural skincare product that you could wish for. It comes in three handy sizes, including a mini 10ml tube (£2.25).
