Celebrity stylist, Mary Alice Stephenson joined me on the morning after the Golden Globes to discuss everything from fashion, beauty and how we can recreate these celebrity red carpet looks in the comfort of our own homes!
Candace Rose: Who were some of your favorites last night?
Mary Alice Stephenson: "There was a lot. I thought it was a really glamorous red carpet; Angelina Jolie, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Sofia Vergara. I could go on and on. It was really phenomenal and everyone looked glamorous and sexy."
Candace Rose: What were some of your top trends from last nights Golden Globes and how do we incorporate them into our own lives?
Mary Alice Stephenson: "Well, there was a lot of skin on the red carpet last night and there was a lot of strapless dresses. So you saw Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Alba, Salma Hayek, Elle Macpherson all in strapless dresses and that means they've got to show their skin. You know, any woman can wear a strapless dress or wear a cocktail dress without stockings no matter what your age if they use body makeup which is what all these women use. My favorite is Sally Hansen's Airbrush Legs. You can get it at drugstores, it really does work. We use it all the time for the red carpet and for magazine shoots, and it's $9.95. You spray it on, it eradicates veins, bruises, blemishes. It makes your skin look flawless and it's really a go-to for many women on the red carpet and you can buy it easily, afford it and use it at home so that you can wear your sexiest dresses.
Another big trend from last night was nude blush tones. Angelina Jolie looked phenomenal in her Versace dress, I love that hint of red on the top of that dress; Kate Beckinsale in her Cavalli, gorgeous; and Charlize Theron in Dior.
And with all that nude color it's fun to pop nail color and so when you're wearing nude color at home- go big, wear red like Reese Witherspoon did on her nails. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure is another favorite Sally Hansen product. It's $7.99 and it really doesn't chip. It lasts forever. I love the color 'All Fired Up', it's one of my favorite reds that you see there. And it is just fast and easy and you can do it at home.
Another thing from Rembrandt is a product that I love and we've tested a lot of them and it's all about smiles. Sophia Vergara- that smile lights up the red carpet every single times. She's so joyful and vibrant. She looked gorgeous in her Vera Wang dress, and her teeth were really white. And you can do this at home. Even if you're taking pictures even for facebook you want to have a very white, bright smile. My favorite is Rembrandt, it's called the Deeply White Two Hour Whitening Kit and you don't have to do it every single day which a lot of those brands out there that whiten your teeth, you have to do it for a week or do it for three days and put the strips on, and this is hassle free. It's one time only for two hours. You know, you put it in like a retainer and it is clinically proven to lighten your teeth up to three shades, so that's only $23. It love it, that's one of my favorites.
Also, Angelina Jolie wore that great red lip and if you're really tired and you've been with the kids, you've been working all day and you know, you're going to be at an event or even at dinner- a birthday dinner, people are going to be taking your picture, thrown on red lipstick. It works every time. It's kind of a little trick we use if you're exhausted- make them look at your lips and my favorite reds are NYC New York Color, it's called Ultra LipWear and what I love about this is that it's number one long lasting. It lasts up to six hours. I used it yesterday and you don't have to reapply, and also it's $1.99 so that's phenomenal to actually only have to spend $1.99 to get a great lip color.
Another trick is remember do not pile eyeshadow heavily on the eye. A lot of women last night on the red carpet, they had a lot of eyeliner and big yummy eyelashes and that's a trick for you at home to really use the right mascara. I've tried a lot of them, one of my favorites is Rimmel London Volume Scandaleyes mascara, so if you go to a drugstore remember Rimmel London Scandaleyes, that's easy to remember and it's only $6.99. And it elongates your lashes up to 12 times their size and it adds a lot of volume. Zooey Deschanel last night was on the red carpet (a new TV star) and she's in their ad campaign and she had a lot of Rimmel on (Scandaleyes on) and she looked great.
There was a fashion mishap on the red carpet so if you have a hem that comes down or a bra strap that keeps showing, I love Hollywood Fashion Tape, it's really strong and works every time and everyone should have it in their closets. I hope you've enjoyed some of these little tips, that you can get your glamour on in your real life and look your most fashionable!"
Candace Rose: I have! I can't wait to get to the store!
