Debra Messing at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards – Get the Look

I had to share the details about Debra Messing’s look at the Golden Globes. Not only because she looked youthful and glamourous, but because her artist used tarte cosmetics. Tarte is a brand that I am newly intrigued by and I can’t wait to pick up some of these products that Debra wore.
