Every blogger and fashion editor is blabbing away about what the celebs wore to the Golden Globes — hits and misses, hot or not, yada yada. Well, I’m one of them and so of course I had to check out all the red carpet photos myself. I was scanning photos and when I came upon a closeup of Mariah Carey and I was just stuck with how pretty she looked. I traditionally haven’t thought too much of Mariah’s looks — she’s cute enough — but at the Golden Globe Awards she look absolutely radiant. Her hair was pulled back and her skin was flawless.
I think that Mariah has the perfect look of soft makeup with just a hint of color and eyes defined with lots of lash. This is such an easy look to achieve and is a refreshing change from the heavily lined smokey look that seems to running rampant among celebrities.
Try these suggestions with Smashbox to get her dazzling pretty look:
