Before we get into the beauty debrief for tonight's SAG Awards, there's a baby red carpet to squeeze in—the Producers Guild Awards, which took place on Saturday in Los Angeles. It was a tiny one, but trust me, these beauty looks make an impact.
Here's the night's hair and makeup:
I think she nailed it. Is everyone in agreement? I know it's been a while since we were unanimously on board with a Jennifer Lawrence beauty look. (Personally, I sat out her entire short hair phase.) But this—this is great. The jet black-meets-midnight blue eyeliner is a triumph, and a must-try if you share this tricky eye shape. Notice how there's just a barely-there taupe all over the lids, with all the action happening along the waterlines and lash lines—which pull OUT, not up. This technique could seriously change the way you wear eye makeup. To compliment it, the flushed cheeks, softly glossy lips (why doesn't JLo wear gloss this way?!) and bendy updo are just right.
Every time I see a picture of Keira this awards season, I think her makeup can't possibly get more stunning... and then I'm proven wrong. This one might be my favourite so far, and as per usual, Kate Lee was the woman behind it. If I'm not mistaken, this is all Chanel: a bright stained lip, flushed-from-within cheeks, ultra-defined (yet natural-looking) lashes and a hint of shimmery rose gold on the lids. Hair is tied back into a soft braid and there are no words for this gorgeousness.
Claire deserves an award for the most improved. Amirite? I mean, go back and compare this with her Golden Globes look to see the difference. She needs to always wear her hair down like this, with bright lips. The red is really, really flattering for her; it's new Troi Ollivierre Lipstick in Parker by longtime J. Crew makeup artist Troi Ollivierre. My gut feel is that Claire suits simple, so I like that there's nothing else happening in her makeup, save for mascara and blush. And my goodness, the blowout and colour are perfection.
Get a load of this woman's glowing skin! Kerry's complexion looks insane here, like she just came from a facial or oxygen treatment (which she probably did). Makeup is a bit more subdued than usual, and I like it. The lashes are more natural, eyes softly smoky, lips sheer and then the cheekbone got some emphasis with the peachy-pink blush. I'm not so crazy about Kerry's hairstyle, however, which seems to only emphasize her high forehead. There's an old beauty rule about not drawing your part right down the centre of a widow's peak, as it'll make the hair seem thinner. I think that applies here... just needs to move an inch or so right or left.
Reese looks a little tired here, and the eye makeup application isn't helping. I like the impact of the shimmery-smokiness, but maybe so much darkness underneath isn't the best. Otherwise, she's her usual elfin adorable self, with nice skin, flushed cheeks, soft lips and an easy updo. Not her best, but certainly not her worst, either.
The first and only other time Christian has appeared on this blog was in 2012, when she was unrecognizable in blonde hair. The dark brunette is MUCH better, and I'm digging the nod to the '60s with it slightly bouffant at the top, tucked behind both ears, and with a sleek side part at the front. The makeup is a little '60s, too; I'm down with the matte pink mouth and I can even live with the lashes. But did the brows really need this much filling in? I find it too obvious and the shape too harsh.
This is basically a variation on Julia's beauty look for the Golden Globes, except her hair isn't pushed back and she's added more pink to her lips and cheeks. I don't think it's quite as sophisticated, but I still like this—you know I love me some face-brightening blush.
Judy has absolutely beautiful, radiant skin and this look overall is quite lovely for her—especially the red lip. In general, I find centre-parted updos a bit severe, so I might part the hair down the side instead of the middle. And I can't figure out what's happening with her mis-matched eyelashes. Is this a Sadie Calvano situation on a minor scale?
