Giorgio Armani's Beauties at the 2012 Golden Globes

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards was broadcast last night. Many of Hollywood’s leading ladies featured the latest from the Giorgio Armani Beauty cosmetic and skin-care lines. Here's how two of them appeared on the red carpet.

Top makeup artist, Tina Turnbow, assisted Best Actress in a Television Series nominee (Comedy/Musical) Laura Linney prepare for the red carpet. “I really wanted a very fun and fresh look for Laura,” stated Turnbow. “Her gorgeous jewel-toned indigo gown inspired me to bring out that color in her makeup, with major emphasis on the eyes.” To set the stage for seamless skin, Turnbow applied Luminous Silk Foundation #4 and Fluid Sheer #2 for extra glow. She rimmed Linney's eyes with Smooth Silk Eye Pencil #3 and blended the pencil in with Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow #10 and Maestro Eyeshadow #11 on the eyelid. She finished the look with Eyes to Kill Stretching Mascara on the eyelashes, along with a soft shade of Rouge d’Armani, #102, on the lips.

Her dress and Fragments starburst earrings complemented her look perfectly - or vice versa. It was a lovely look that paired her J. Mendel dress with Christian Louboutin heels and a VBH clutch.

Actress Calista Flockhart worked with Tim Quinn, Giorgio Armani National Creative Artist, to prepare for the awards ceremony. Calista’s elegant black gown with a cascading pleat inspired Quinn to create a classic look that was chic and effortless. “I wanted to create an understated sexiness in the makeup that would compliment the sophistication of Calista’s gown,” states Quinn. He prepped the skin with Regenessence High Lift Rich Cream and Eye Balm (both launching in March) to achieve a healthy glow. Quinn then applied Designer Lift Foundation #5 mixed with Fluid Sheer #2 to create skin that was both luminous and flawless. “I really wanted Calista to embody old Hollywood glamour with a modern twist, so I decided to stain the lips with an orange/red hue, while keeping the rest of the makeup fairly simple and radiant.” He blended Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadows #8 and #9 on the eyelid, then coated her eyelashes with Eyes to Kill Stretching Mascara. He applied Rouge d’Armani #401 (blotted to create a faded effect) on the lips and finished with a light sweep of Sheer Blush #2 on the apples of her cheeks.

Flockhart's dress? Vintage Chanel!

I'll leave you for now with one of Mr. Armani's Armani Privé gowns, spectacularly modeled by Glenn Close. Her earrings snared me last night! The combination of the dress with the earrings was first class.I thought she looked fabulous.

I have more to say about the hits from the red carpet. I'll be back later.

There is supposed to be an Eyes to Kill Mascara in Mineral Green, Nemo, but I haven't seen it yet.
