So many gorgeous celebrities at the Golden Globes last night, but the one that makes us wonder most about whether she eats baby unicorns for breakfast is Jennifer Lopez. Good GOD she looks incredible – she kinda makes being 46 (and 47) really difficult for the rest of us.

I will say this, though. I don't love JLo's hair colour. Not quite enough contrast against her skin, and it was a little off against that stunning Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown. For me, the hair colour (and style) and makeup became magic against the white Roland Mouret she wore to the Golden Globes 2016 after party.

Here's what JLo's longtime makeup artist Mary Phillips used for her Golden Globes 2016 red-carpet look:

skin prep

  • Giorgio Armani Prima Glow Moisturizing Balm (not available)
  • Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado (at nordstrom.com)
  • Armani Prima Eye and Lip Contour Perfector (not available)

complexion

Jennifer Lopez: I know this isn't the most flattering shot or crop, but it's a clear image of what red-carpet makeup looks like in real life, close-up. It's sculpted, a bit exaggerated (note the overdrawn lip lines) designed for bright flash and stage lighting. And I think JLo might have rubbed at her left brow.

Is there a bit more gold in JLo's eyeshadow here? Maybe. Her skin tone and hair colour look fantastic with this white gown. Better than in the yellow, I think.

What do you think? Is she having baby unicorns for breakfast? How about her hair colour? And makeup? Marigold gown or white?
