Hollywood’s brightest stars were out to play at the 73rd Golden Globe Awards, leaving us captivated with their gorgeous gowns and enviable hair and makeup.
While the chances of us mere mortals donning a Versace gown is very slim, there is no law against recreating the red carpet looks as seen on our favourite Hollywood A-listers.
Our Beauty Team have pulled together their favourite looks that will have you rocking your own awards night in style.
After all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Effortless Glowing Skin
There is nothing more stylish than glowing skin.
Choosing the right primer is important for creating a flawless base before makeup application.
Splurge: Use the YSL Top Secrets Flash Radiance Skincare Brush underneath your foundation as a primer. Combining high-performance skin care with the effortless application of a makeup brush, this complexion perfecting primer wipes away signs of stress and fatigue in a flash.
Save: The Chi Chi InstaPrime Flawless Face Primer , RRP$39.99 (available in-store only) is a great primer as its non-drying formula is oil absorbing, so skin stays smooth and shine-free. Next, use the The Nude By Nature Soft Focus Illuminator on the high points of your face to create a glow underneath the foundation.
Splurge: Try the Lancome Miracle Cushion. The cushion compact releases the perfect amount of makeup for effortless perfection, creating a dewy, fresh glow in second. Retouch any imperfections with the iconic YSL Touche Eclat.

Old Hollywood Glamour
Pay homage to Old Hollywood glamour with a statement lip colour.
This look is worn best with a simple nude eye shade, a flick of eyeliner and mascara for defined lashes.
Splurge: Clinique Quickliner For Eyes in Intense Black, RRP$41 (available in-store only). If a softer flick is what you’re after, use a pencil to create a line of definition along the lash line and softly wing it out. This Clinique Quickliner comes with its own smudging tool, allowing you to gently smudge colour to a desired effect.
Save: Create the perfect winged eyeliner with the Chi Chi Double Trouble 2-in-1 Eyeliner, RRP$27.99 (available in-store only) by outlining your desired wing shape using the liquid eyeliner end, and then filling in your outline using the creamy, easily blendable end.
Give your lashes added curl and definition.
Choose a nude eyeshade to complement the look.

Save: The Maybelline Colour Molten In Nude Rush creates a gorgeous nude lid, with a creamy, easy-to-apply formula.
A lip liner extends the wear of any lip colour, and stops your lipstick from bleeding or feathering.
