Red-lipped, mysteriously sultry makeup wasn’t the only winter trend seen on the Jan. 12 Golden Globe award ceremony. A few Hollywood starlets, in fact, did the exact opposite and went au naturel with a fresh-faced, no-makeup makeup look.

A very pregnant Kerry Washington utilized her naturally glowing skin and, with just a slight bit of smoky liner and a barely-there lip balm, looked absolutely radiant.

The “Good Wife,” Julianna Margulies, faked her gorgeous glow with just a simple bronzer on the apples of her cheeks, maintaining a strong, naturally-colored brow and some extra lashes.

Sarah Hyland from “Vampire Academy” left her geek glasses, pale skin, and blood-stained lips at home and arrived looking angelic with one coat of mascara, light bronzer on her cheeks and her eyelids, peach lips and, again, a naturally strong brow.

Award presenter Kate Beckinsale – who was stunning in her structured, silver-detailed sequin, mermaid gown by Zuhair Murad – kept her makeup light and fresh with a soft taupe shadow, extra mascara, dewy skin, and a simple natural lip gloss.

Supermodel powerhouse Heidi Klum wore a monochromatic lip and cheek duo of a soft pink, with top and bottom mascara and white inner rim eye liner: clean and classy.

Everyone’s favorite anti-mean girl Lizzy Caplin cleaned up well with, once again, a naturally strong brow, a set of false eyelashes, and a soft satin sheer lip balm. Janis Ian, that Pucci crocheted gown was definitely not made from “your mother’s chest hair.”

Tip: It’s all about balancing. Choose one area of your look to go bold, while the rest should compliment it with coordinating neutrals.

Trick: Red carpet must haves: lashes and lip gloss will keep you noticed from up close to on stage and will enhance your features in photos.
