So the Oscars 2014 took place last night and I was delighted to see the style this year. Very classic, elegant and soft.
Makeup wise – smokey, smudged liner and soft lips seemed to very popular with Angelina Joile, Kate Hudson and Maria Menounos being three of my favourites from the night and Margot Robbie who has gone from blonde to dark locks went for a simple liner and rich berry tone with her lipstick.
Hair was all about soft styles with polished Hollywood waves being very popular and some lovely up do’s.

The Grammy Awards 2014 took place last night and as every year there was a string of lovely ladies sporting fabulous dresses, makeup and hair.
Here are 4 of my favourites from the night… Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Anna Kendrick and Katy Perry. Four different looks but all beautifully polished, glamorous and suited them all perfectly. I loved Beyonce’s berry lip colour and Katy Perry’s gorgeous liner and lashes really made her eye’s pop.
If you’re getting married over the coming months or next year and you haven’t decided what make-up style you might like to wear then the red carpet is always a good place to look for inspiration. Below are 4 of my favourite looks from this years awards which would work perfectly for brides and there’s something for everyone…
Reese: Soft and pretty with smudged eyeliner for a soft smokey eye, pink blush and pink lip.
Jennifer: Again very soft with a silver grey shadow, liquid liner, peach cheeks and nude lip.
Amanda: Don’t be afraid of colour. Purples look amazing on green eye’s and by keeping the rest of the make-up clean and subtle it’s looks fresh and modern.
Alexa: A hint of vintage with a clean defined liquid liner, fresh skin with just a soft flush on the cheeks topped off with a strong lip.
So which one would you wear on your big day?
MAC Cosmetics new fall collection is dedicated to the work of the late illustrator Antonio Lopez and they have enlisted the help of the ever fabulous Jerry Hall, Pat Cleveland and Marisa Berenson’s to front the campaign.
Antonio launched all three models careers and the limited-edition make-up bag, mirror (which I’m lusting after!), tote and make-up compacts all printed with his vibrant watercolour illustrations. I adore these eye, lip and face palettes which come in the striking violet, teal, fuchsia and gold which really capture the magic of the 70’s and each one bears the face of one of his model muses. Whatever about the makeup, I want these just for the packaging!
James Gager, senior vice president and group creative director for MAC said… “…we felt this was the right moment to reintroduce Antonio Lopez’s work to a wider audience, and the world to these women, who are still iconic and look really fantastic. They are steeped in an age that we are all intrigued by.”
The new MAC Antonio Lopez collection is available from September 2013 from http://www.maccosmetics.co.uk.
The SAG Awards 2013 (or Screen Actors Guild Awards) were held over the weekend and with it of course came plenty of style and amazing dresses. The one which stood out a immediately for me was Marion Cotillard’s stunning Dior Haute Couture silk gown. I adore the strapless top combined with the full skirt and bow detail – she looks so chic. The pockets add a really nice modern touch – and of course so pratical for carrying your lippy for those touch ups! The colour was stunning on her and her make-up reflected it beautifully.
For make-up it was both Marion and Michelle Dockery which I loved. They both went for a smokey eye with lashings of black eyeliner and mascara but while Marion kept her lip colour soft and pink, Michelle went for a berry red shade which looked fabulous with her pale skin and picked out the copper tones in her wavy bob. Gorgeous!
