Award Season Fave: Jessica Biel

Award season is in full swing.  I treat award season like holidays.  I have hors d’oeuvres and champagne ready to go, I may or may not dress up.  The first time I can remember watching the Oscars was when Titanic was nominated.  I loved the fashion and the makeup, and well, I still do today.

This past weekend I tuned in to the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards.  I was inspired by the actors who wore black to highlight women’s inequality and injustice in the workplace to support the Times Up Legal Defense Fund.  Men also wore black and some topped their lapels with Times Up pins.  I absolutely love wearing black, and it was stunning on the red carpet. What also made black a wonderful choice, was it highlighted makeup and of course those sparkly jewels.  I especially loved seeing a pop of color on the lips- it stood out beautifully.  My favorite for this trend- the stunning Jessica Biel.

I have always been a fan of Jessica Biel.  She always looks gorgeous on the red carpet, but Globes night- she stunned.  She wore a stunning gown by Christian Dior, shoes by Jimmy Choo, and Jewels by Bulgaria.  Hairstylist Adir Abergel styled Jessica’s hair into a beautifully modern yet classic sculpted ‘do.  But what really stole the show, was her makeup.  Jessica’s longtime makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua  gave Biel a classic eye and a gorgeous pop of color on the lips.  In fact, I had to track down the lip color for myself.  I found Kara Yoshimoto Bua’s Instagram and her stories had a full list of the products she used on Jessica. Kara is a Chanel makeup artist and during award season they hashtag like crazy and you can follow Chanel makeup artists and find out exactly what products they use (should you fancy anything- like I did that fabulous classic pink lippie on Jessica).  Kara gave Jessica a beautifully bold yet sophisticated pink lip look using Chanel’s Lip Definer in Sonic Pink (70) and Chanel’s Rouge Allure Velvet, Luminous Matte Lip Colour in L’Ecletante (42).  Unfortunately, the lip definer is discontinued, but you can find the lipstick in any department store that carries Chanel, or via Chanel online/ beautiques.

As I am writing right now, I have seen some preliminary images from this evening’s Critics’ Choice Awards and Jessica is wearing another gorgeous lip color.  Kara gave Jessica yet another gorgeous makeup look, and the lip look is gorgeous as well.  More on this look to come… For now, I am getting ready for the 8 pm showing of the Critic’s Choice Awards. Happy watching!
