Want to know what’s going to be seen on the red carpets this awards season? Well the clothes might be a surprise, but I was given some insight about makeup and hair from Amy Nadine, celebrity makeup artist and Kylee Heath, celebrity hair stylist – at a People’s Choice Awards viewing party I attended last week. Allow me to share…


Trend 1: Glowing Goddess

Glowing skin is back in a major way after a decade of matte looks. Expect highlighted cheekbones, creamy skin and luminous décolletage, shoulders, arms and legs. Use only cream-based products to create a natural flush then strategically mattify the T-zone with an anti-shine product.

Products to try: Olay Dew Over Hydrating Gel Moisturizer & Olay Regenerist Luminous, COVERGIRL TruMagic SunKisser, Gillette Venus & Olay Razor

Trend 2: The Metallic Sparkle Smudge

Lids come to life by taking the traditional smoky eye, reversing it (so all of the attention is on the lashline instead of the crease) and adding high shimmer on top. This is the antithesis of the cat eye, with no structure but instant drama, making the eyes brilliantly piercing and sparkling.

Products to try: COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast Eyeliner (in Black Fire or Brown Blaze), COVERGIRL Queen Collection Shadow Pot and COVERGIRL LashBlast Bombshell Volume

Trend 3: The Perfected Pout
A nod to the Uptown Girl, this look is very put together with the lip lined, colored and glossed. This is a fun break from the matte lip, making it fresh and exciting!

Products to try: COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Lip Liner in Passion, COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Lip Liner in Beloved, Covergirl Queen Collection Lip Color in See Red, COVERGIRL ShineBlast Gloss in Glow and Crest 3D White Whitestrips Professional Effects

Trend 1: Sleek Meets Soft

This season we will be seeing a lot of contrast in texture. Mixed patterns and change in fabric is very in. It is important that the hair reflects this trend without being overwhelming. Think hard side part with a messy undone texture or sleek middle part into a messy pony or bun.

Product to try: Vidal Sassoon’s Flexible Hold Hairspray

Trend 2: The “Accidental Bend”

It’s not a curl and it’s not really a wave, it’s a tousled bend and a great way to give a “cool” vibe to any look. This look can edge up a gown or add a whimsical twist to a dress with a lot of structure.

Product to try: Vidal Sassoon Repair Heat & Protect Shine Spray

Trend 3: Breathtakingly Bangin’

Bangs are in. Whether they are short and choppy or short and swooped. With all the texture in the fabrics, bangs can be a great soft or edgy addition to the face and look.

Product to try: Herbal Essence’s NAKED Volume Dry Shampoo
