Watch Tina and Amy (Ahem, We Mean the Golden Globes) with Us Tonight!

At Birchbox HQ, we spend a lot of time discussing all the celebs we *know* would be our BFFs if they could only meet us. I mean, come on—we are so fun! While the list of our make-believe star friends is long (we’ve got everyone from Michelle Obama to Rachel Roy on there) the two always at the top are Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. We can’t get enough of these wickedly smart, funny, beautiful women. Naturally, we are pretty psyched about watching the duo lead the Golden Globes tonight. We’ll be chattering about the looks we love (and don’t love so much) on Twitter so make sure you’re following @birchbox!

Plus, this award season we’re trying something new! At 6:30pm EST, when the red carpet coverage begins, we’ll launch a Facebook poll where you can nominate and vote for your favorite looks of the night. Then Monday morning we’ll share a tutorial here on the blog to help you get the look using products you can find in the Birchbox Shop

See you tonight!
