Get The Look: Amy Poehler’s SAG Awards Beauty Look

Celebrity makeup artist to the stars, Brett Freedman, created Amy Poehler’s sultry beauty look before walking the red carpet at the SAG awards last night. Brett mixed warm and cool tones on her eyes and created a pale pink lip to soften the look. “A vivid eye and pink lip struck the perfect balance to her plunging midnight blue Jenny Packham dress,” said Brett.

 

Eyes
1. Apply a taupe shadow, like MAC Wedge, to the bottom lash line and crease. Next, deepen the ends with a plum shadow to add definition

2. Dust a shimmering silver shadow, like MAC Idol Eyes, on the lids with a damp brush

3. Smudge Elizabeth Arden pencil in Black Violet along the upper lash line

4. Lastly, make eyes pop by running two coats of black mascara through upper and lower lashes

Brows
1. Stroke the lighter shade of the Brett Brow Duo-Shade Pencil behind existing hairs and the deeper shade to fill in sparse areas and define the tail

2. Next, apply a golden eye shadow, like MAC Gold Mine, with a damp fantail brush to lighten brows

3. Finally, set the arch by brushing Brett Brow Arch-Control Gel upwards through the brow

Lips
1. Sweeten up the smoky eye by applying a cool pink tone like Chanel #357 across lips

You can see from my swatch below two coats gives really great coverage with Lauren B beauty polish. I love how easy this polish is to apply. I usually make a mess of my nail beds applying polish but this went on without much hassle. It dried quick and solid, I had it on for 4 days before I decided to change colors up and not even a chip.

Estée Lauder Launches Little Black Primer featuring Kendall Jenner

Kendall’s first campaign for Estée Lauder and she does a great job. Love the idea of this primer, can’t wait to check it out!

little black primer

Estée Lauder Little Black Primer $24
Think of it as the little black dress for lashes. Unlike traditional lash primers that are white, this primer is tinted black, so you can use it on its own.

Three ways to wear it:

Tint: Colors and lifts bare lashes so they stay silky black throughout the day and even overnight.

Amplify: As a primer, it’s the optimal mascara base for volume, lift and length.

Set: Brush over mascara for a long-wearing, water-resistant topcoat that helps reduce smudging and flaking.

No well-dressed lashes should be without it.

Patent-pending formula.

How to use:
Apply it on bare lashes for a softer, more natural lash look. Brush on as a lash primer under mascara. Wear as a top coat to set mascara.
