Golden Globes: Emily Blunt's romantic makeup and Olivia Wilde's Bond girl beauty

Two young starlets, two totally different looks.

Olivia Wilde smoldered in a va va voom black Gucci dress, Tiffany baubles and a retro, Bond girl-esque up do. "I was inspired by that early Tom Ford look," says Charles Dujic who gave Wilde's tresses a good tease and added a wig piece in the back so the style would stay up even in this wet weather. "Wig hair tends to be heavily peroxided, so it holds curl really well. Olivia has no [artificial] color in her hair and it's very straight." Dujic used volumizing products from Bumble and Bumble's Curl Conscious line to add volume to the flirty, flippy up do. To ensure the rain wouldn't deflate his handy work, "I gave it a good strong blast of Elnet hair spray and told her to keep her hands out of it."

On the lighter side, Emily Blunt wore a frothy Dolce and Gabbana confection--a girly departure from her usually neutral and understated red carpet choices.  Makeup artist Jenn Streicher played up the pink in the actress' cheeks. "Emily's only request was to have a really pink cheek," says Streicher, who applied a strong sweep of color from the Dior Rose Diamond blush palette. "We went with all violet-mauvey-pink tones for her and a pink-nude lip. She never likes to be too dressed up and too fancy." Blunt's loose, wavy hair and fresh, pink hued makeup struck a nice balance between saccharine sweet and effortless elegance.
