THIS weekend’s Golden Globes saw A-list actresses turning out in black in a silent protest against sexual harassment.
But when everyone is dressed in the same colour, there’s even more reason to make a statement with the make-up.

Just ask Emma Stone.
According to her make-up artist, the La La Land star’s choice of purple lippy and emerald green eye shadow was more than just a colour preference.
In fact it contained a secret message about the empowerment of women.
Rachel Goodwin, her beauty stylist, was inspired by Time’s Up – the campaign to help victims of sexual harassment set up in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

And she took her cue from the suffragettes who won women the vote in the early 20th century.
She told People: “Once I heard about the idea of women coming together and wearing black to the ceremony, and the message behind it, my friend Arianne [Phillips] designing the Time’s Up pin and what the message is, I wanted the makeup to have a message as well.
“I thought, red lipstick was a colour suffragettes wore, so I did more research and found that they also wore very specific, symbolic sashes, pins, petticoats and all these things in purple, emerald green and white when they were fighting for the right to vote.
