As award season marches on, this week brings another round of celebrity beauty looks to inspire us, courtesy of last night's SAG Awards.
Also known as the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the ceremony celebrates the best in television and film—which means we get a double dose of glam from our favourite red carpet stars.
These were the best skin, hair and makeup moments:
Two words: Blown. Away! Zoë looks like a modern-day Audrey Hepburn in this gown, gloves and elegant hair and makeup. The peach tones are doing incredible things for her skin—which isn't too covered up, since we can still see her freckles—and I love the cat eyes and subtle shading of her lids. She is flawless!
Dakota traded her usual girly aesthetic for a sexy, beachy vibe, and I'm here for it. Especially the messy, mermaid hair texture, which dresses down the sparkly green dress. (I think it's bad lighting that is making her blonde seem so yellow!) The makeup couldn't be more delicate, with sheer washes of peach on her lids and cheeks.
Dakota is wearing: Tinted lip balm in Super Cashmere
You don't often see old Hollywood hairstyles with Afro hair texture, but Lupita's 1940s-inspired updo shows us how it's done. Then, she matched her makeup to her dress by layering white next to black eyeliner. The rich berry blush and lipstick bring it all together.
Scarlett is back on her game with this slick, tight updo and bright orangey-red lipstick. I love how healthy her skin looks (and there's no sign of the white under-eyes we saw at the Golden Globes!). Her eyes are emphasized with warm shimmery shadow, a sweep of liquid liner, and a pop of gold at the inner corners.
Reese is wearing the exact same flippy bob hairstyle we saw at the Golden Globes, but now I like it even better. I think it's because the makeup colours are a lot more flattering here—no brown tones, and a cherry lipstick that brings her face to life. Together, the effect is young and fresh.
I appreciate how Joey keeps mixing it up this award season. Here, it's all about the slicked-back hair, extra long earrings and sultry, smoky charcoal eyeshadow. Although the eyebrow pencil is the wrong shade, this is probably my favourite look I've seen on her yet. (I hope she tones down the lip injections, though!)
Joey is wearing: Moisturizer • Primer • Foundation in 20CP • Concealer in 20CP • Powder in 30NN • Blush in Going Native • Setting spray • Eyeshadow primer • Eyeshadow in Stranded, Jet and Drift • Eyeshadow in Midnight Cowboy • Eyeliner in Perversion and Smoke • Mascara • Brow pencil in Cafe Kitty • Lip liner in Liar • Lipstick in Ex-Girlfriend
So far, I've been underwhelmed by Margot this award season. She's still rocking the dark roots from the Golden Globes, and in this loose bun, it truly looks like she didn't have time to go to the hairdresser's. The makeup is fine, but we've seen it before—it's just flushed cheeks and a slightly deeper lip colour.
After her stiff waves and awkward orange dress at the Golden Globes, I'm happy to see Michelle upping the glam factor. The makeup is much more intense than usual, with long lashes, black liner and a rich red lip. But it's the Art Deco barrette and angular waved bob that really make this stand out.
I'm glad Jennifer wore her hair down in textured waves, because otherwise, her ensemble would've looked way too "prom." I can't fault the au naturel makeup—just a hint of mascara and a pinky tint on the lips—but I feel like she deserves a stronger overall style statement. We need more edge!
Jennifer is wearing: Moisturizer • Face oil • Primer • Foundation in Soft Beige • Concealer in Sugar • Setting spray • Highlighter in Rose Gold • Eyeshadow in Toasted Eggshell, Dusty Mauve and Silk Stone • Eyeliner in Dark Brown • Mascara in Black/Brown • Lipstick in Center Stage
This is classic Jen, but at least she didn't wear black this time. I think her hair looks better in this simple blowout, rather than the waves she had at the Golden Globes. The makeup is exactly the same. Pretty, but predictable.
Nicole should wear blue more often—it looks so good with her blue eyes, pale skin and strawberry blonde hair. I like the matching hint of silvery blue shadow at the inner corners of her eyes (although I don't love the lashes), and the vintage waves look thick and luscious. If only she'd ease up a bit on the cosmetic tinkering.
Millie Bobby Brown
Believe it or not, Millie is only 15... but here, she's been styled like someone 20 or 30 years older. I think the entire look is too mature. The mother of the bride outfit is the worst part, but also the stiff long hairstyle and brown smoky shadow. She needs to be taking cues from Kiernan Shipka!
Millie is wearing: Serum • Moisturizer • Eye mask • Foundation in Light Medium 8 • Powder in Light 1 • Blush in Shy Shi • Eyeshadow in Telepathic Taupe and Deep Velvet • Eyeshadow in Sublime • Eyeliner in Shade and Blk Coffee • Mascara • Brow gel in Brown • Lip oil • Lip liner in Supernatural • Lipstick in LaBeija • Lip gloss in Flesh Astral
Apparently, Charlize didn't have time to do her roots, so she adorned them with a diamond tennis bracelet instead! I can't say I'm a fan (although I'm not going to complain about her blonde because I'm pretty sure it's the lighting). Her go-to neutral makeup was updated with a pinky shadow from lash lines to brows.
I was hopeful that JLo would give us a head-to-toe old Hollywood moment, but the hair and makeup just aren't cutting it. The two face-framing pieces pulled out of her updo are really dated, as are the smoky eyes and heavy lashes. It's also a shame that her skin is covered in thick, shiny foundation... and that goopy nude lip look needs to go!
