Cate Blanchett was one of my personal favorites at last night’s 71st Annual Golden Globe’s Red Carpet. Cate wore a gorgeous Armani Privé gown, complemented by Chopard earrings. With makeup by Jeanine Lobell and hair by Robert Vetica using Vidal Sassoon Pro Series, her overall look was flawless. Here’s how to recreate the look…
THE LOOK: Soft and Romantic
THE INSPIRATION: “We didn’t want to do the expected red lip to go with her gorgeous Armani black gown,” Said Lobell. “So we went the softer route. No harsh lines. Instead, I blended colors for dimension.”
Lancôme Hypnôse Waterproof Custom Volume Mascara – Jeanine piled on layers and layers to both the top and bottom lash line, combined with individual flares, to create dramatic lashes.
Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in Intuition and Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Emervielle – By blending the pinky-beige and goldy-beige shades and dusting them from the lid to the lash line, in addition to adding a pop of Emervielle to the lid, Jeanine was able to create dimension without using any liners. Jeanine created a defined but not too harsh brow using NARS Brow Gel.

Celebrity Manicurist April Foreman chose essie’s au natural nail polish; the perfect sheer nude with just a hint of sparkle to pick up the light on the red carpet. “We wanted to keep everything elegant and clean – from her nails to her hair and makeup – for a classic red-carpet look.”
Here’s how Robert Vetica created Cate’s hair style:
1. First prep damp hair with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Boost & Lift Foaming Air Mousse, applying throughout the hair for lift and hold.
2. Create a low side part and then starting in the back, take a medium boar bristle round brush and blow dry hair down and away from the face, keeping hair flat. Apply a bit more mousse to the front of your hair to help shape your style while giving extra hold to your look.
3. Once hair is dry, spritz Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Heat Protect & Shine Spray to protect hair before curling it. Using a ¾ inch curling iron, take hair in the back of your head, separate into 2 inch sections and curl.
4. Once the curled hair has cooled, backcomb to create texture and roll hair up into an “underwrap” style, pinning the look into place. Once all the hair has been rolled and pinned, pull a few pieces of hair from the “underwrap” to create a natural look with a little texture.
5. To finish, spray hair with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Flexible Hold Hairspray to lock your look in place.
