Get the Look! Naomi Watts STUNS at the SAG Awards!

INSPIRATION: “For a classic look for Naomi, we decided to go with a nod to Julie Christie. It is very femme fatale.”​

TIPS/TECHNIQUE: “To be sure Naomi’s skin was glowing and radiant, I applied St. Tropez Luxe Dry Oil on exposed skin for a shimmering, luminous finish. The dress is a beautiful shade of midnight blue, so I went with shades of indigo, deep grey and purple to shade and shape the eye. A soft wash of pink on the cheek kept her looking soft and delicate.”​

PRODUCTS: St. Tropez Luxe Dry Oil ($50)

Of course I had to add a photo of her hot husband, Liev Schreiber. MMM.

Get the Look! Rosamund Pike’s stunning SAG Awards look!

INSPIRATION: “I’m always inspired by the dress and tonight Rosamund is wearing an elegant, yet modern and playful asymmetrical style. To honor the dynamic, I wanted her makeup to remain neutral with a pop of color on the lip.”​​

TIPS/TECHNIQUE: “To prep Rosamund’s fair skin, I applied SISLEY Sisleya Essential Skincare Lotion all over the face which is the first step to my skincare ritual, followed by the refreshing SISLEY Floral Spray Mist. To brighten the under eye area I applied a thick layer of SISLEY Eye Contour Mask and left it on for 10 minutes. Next I mixed a few drops of SISLEY Black Rose Precious Face Oil with SISLEY Hydra-Global Intense Anti-Aging Hydration to keep Rosamund’s skin nourished all night long. I finished with SISLEY Nutritive Lip Balm, which I left on until I was ready to apply lipstick. It’s important to use a primer that locks in moisture but also creates a flawless canvas, like the MAKE UP FOR EVER Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer, which comes out in March. I then feathered out MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Foundation all over the face  followed by SISLEY Phyto-Cernes Eclat Concealer for under the eyes. To set the foundation I dusted CHANEL Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Broad Spectrum SPF 15 all over and applied it with MAKE UP FOR EVER Artisan Medium Powder Brush #126. To contour, I blended CHANEL Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base with MAKE UP FOR EVER Artisan Blending Brush #122 and worked the product below the cheek bone, then gently swiped it across the top of the forehead and bridge of the nose for a sun-kissed glow. To add freshness to Rosamund’s makeup look I softly blended MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Blush #225 Peachy Pink to the apples of the cheeks. Since I planned to focus on the lips I wanted to create soft definition on the eyes by applying MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Matic Eye Shadow Pencil in #ME-50 Metallic Golden Taupe to the top lid crease and softly smudged the color along the bottom lash line, ensuring it connected on the outer corner. I then used MAKE UP FOR EVER Artisan Large Blender Brush #242 to define the eyes with CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Prélude. I used CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Brun on the bottom lashes and then applied my favorite mascara, MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Lash Mascara Rich Black, to the top lashes to create a more intense look. Rosamund’s lips are the focus of tonight’s makeup look and I wanted to add a pop of fun, matte color that would last for hours on the red carpet. I used MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Liner Pencil #25C Orange Red to line the lips and filled in with CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in La Pétillante.”​

Grammy Beauty: Bangs Were Big!

Jennifer Hudson walked the Grammys red carpet with sleek, glossy strands, only to go on stage an hour later with a pair of faux bangs snapped in place. And Hudson wasn’t the only one having a bangs moment—the look was one of the most popular beauty trends of the evening. Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott‘s blunt bangs dusted her eyes, a pregnant Selma Blair had a wispier look, Faith Evans‘s thick bangs were razor sharp, and Florence + the Machine’s Florence Welch maintained her signature ginger style—wavy with a touch of fringe.

I’m always tempted to do bangs, but I’m not that gutsy. If I hated them, it would be a long growing-out process!
