Road to the Red Carpet: Getting Gorge the Giorgio Armani Beauty Way– Tim Quinn Talks About Golden Globe Events! LA STORY Getting Glam at the Golden Globes Blog & PODCAST!

If you are a beauty junkie (and I confess.. that’s one of my obsessions too!), you will be very familiar with Giorgio Armani Beauty — the fab line of cosmetics that have become an obsession for many women out there who love the sophisticated  colors, array of textures and the unique, cutting edge products. It always seems that Armani is either one step ahead or taken that last "must have " trend and tweaked it and taken it up a notch in quality and  application.  It’s just one of those "cult " fave lines that’s no longer cult but just plain obsession!


Who better to talk to about beauty and getting glam during the Golden Globes than Head of Make-Up Artistry, Tim Quinn. If you were around for may Emmy podcast with Tim Quinn, you will find this podcast very different in tone and feel. If you haven’t heard that podcast or seen the blog, check out the link above and have a listen– at your leisure. (check that. Listen before, so that you can really see the difference between the two podcasts).

Since the Emmys, Tim Quinn and I have been corresponding back and forth touching base trying to figure out a good time and topic to cover for another podcast. Tim and I  emailed back and forth about the Golden Globes and what was going on. We played so much email and phone tag that someone should give us a special GPS to track each other down.

Tim was in LA to do his thing for Giorgio Armani Beauty- making celebs and VIPS look gorge for red carpet events and parties. While he trekked out to see a certain Giogio Armani celeb favorite out in Santa Clarita on the set of her latest job, he was surprised to find the traffic radically different from the excursion out to the return trip. Vive la difference! In LA traffic can be absurd.

But check out this podcast with this wonderful man who was so great to come meet me at the Sofitel (and if you heard my other podcasts with Nine West and the other couple with Carlos Falchi, LAVANILLA and also you will know I was a busy girl that day– and that was the last suite of the day. I had been to 4 or 5 places on that very chilly day. (cold snap in LA = 32 at night IN THE CITY!).

Tim was kind of enough to give us the hints on the Spring collection. YUMMY berry tones that I will have to collect! I love these colors because not only are the pigmented, they sheer easily and you can go from subtle to sophisticatedly glam in just a few minutes.

I want to thank Tim Quinn for his time and patience and willingness to just sit and chat during this crazy week that we had traipsing across LA and beyond. He was busier than I was but still he was impressed that I was the ‘energizer bunny’ of the Golden Globes.

So hit your Armani counter and SHOP. Make sure you score that foundation, a few key pieces of the new collection and the Maestro mascara! LOVE THAT!!

See you at the next Red Carpet event Tim!! ( PS.. He’s cuter than his photo!)
