Another week, another red carpet, another round of gorgeous hair and makeup looks!
This time, they're from the Screen Actors Guild Awards, better known as the SAGs, held on Sunday night in Los Angeles. Here are ALL the juicy beauty details:
Kerry's bold black eyeshadow. Remember when Beyoncé did her eyeshadow like this at last year's Met Gala? I think Kerry wears it even better! It's not so heavy at the inner corners, and the highlight gives it dimension. Her lips look fab in the opaque peach gloss, and the long, straight hair complements the fierceness of the eyes. Let's also take a moment to appreciate the perfection of her skin. The only thing I don't like is the way her brows are filled in. The brown powder is obvious and distracting.
Kerry is wearing: Moisturizer • Foundation in Cocoa • Concealer in Deep • Blush in Vibrant • Eyeshadow in Smoky Steel • Eyeliner in Cosmic Black • Mascara in Carbon Black • False lashes in #811 • Brow pomade in Dark Brown • Lip balm • Lip crayon in Berry Brown
Salma's lipstick and eyeshadow are matchy-matchy in pink, but it's subtle. This woman clearly does not age, because it doesn't even look like she's wearing foundation! She has great full brows, and I like the au naturel lashes with smudgy charcoal liner. The side-swept waves are actually braided at the back, and don't look stiff like we usually see on the red carpet.
Kirsten paired classic red lipstick with sparkly shadow and long, soft lashes. (Falsies are kind of lazy when it's possible to get lashes to look this gorgeously defined!) The brow-filling is quite clever on the one side, and I like her a lot with mid-length wavy hair.
Now THIS is the kind of makeup I adore on Emma! (Unlike, say, the pale pinks that kinda washed her out at the Globes.) The smudgy greenish-gold adds just enough drama to her eyes, while the warm pink lips and cheeks bring life to her complexion. She's doing the retro wave thing in her side-parted hair, but because it's a mid-length, it doesn't look dated.
I love brunettes in purple, so Natalie's purple smoky eyes are perfection. She kept things fresh by opting for natural lashes, a sheer berry-tinted lip balm, and subtly stained cheeks. She has excellent brows, and I like the controlled waves through her updo.
I love Michelle's skinny black liner, all the way around her eyes and defining her inner corners. A faint reddish stain and glossy finish enhance her lips, but everything else is pale and soft. While she wore her platinum crop all sleek at the Golden Globes, this time it's deliberately messy.
Yara looks like she's as excited about this look as I am. I love her pretty, pink-stained lips—the texture is just perfect. And so is everything else about this look, from the sleek, side-parted updo to the matte taupe shadow and subtle contouring. (She even pulls off the false lashes, since she's got so much lid space.) Her skin and brows are amazing, but keep in mind, she's only 16!
I'm normally averse to so many cool colours on the face all at once, but I love how Busy's silver shadow and raspberry lipstick pop beautifully against her warm skin and hair. It helps that she has great skin and nice, thick brows. The casual ponytail is great because it takes down the dressiness of the makeup.
Janelle wore her signature twin buns, this time accessorized with tiny flowers. It's really incredible how she can wear beauty looks (and outfits) that would easily be overkill on anybody else. Her makeup has a magenta theme on lips and lids, with neutral tones for sculpting and black liner for definition.
I like Brie's subtle brown eye makeup and light burnt orange lipstick. With her nice skin and brows, it's a very understated, tone-on-tone look to complement her white dress. But rather than muted warm tones, I have to say that I much prefer her in clear brights. Like this look. The textured waves through her updo add a romantic touch.
I love the contrast of matte red lips against Sophie's ultra-pale skin and hair. Also notice how defined her lashes are, with no liner, just sheer light gold shadow all over the lids. Although her brows aren't super-thick, the darker hue and roughed-up texture gives them impact. I like that she wore her hair long, loose and wavy, although her ends could use a crisp trim.
With mid-length waves and brow-skimming bangs, Rashida looks dressy, but still like herself. The warm berry lipstick echoes the flowers on her dress, and I love the way she did her black liner. It's thicker along the top lashes, with no wing, and a skinnier line around the rest of the eye.
Amy's loose bun and long, side-swept bang are effortlessly glam. I also love the change of pace with this edgier, smoky metallic eye—which totally picks up the silver and blue hues of her jewellery. Her makeup artist says this is one of his favourite and most wearable lip glosses.
Naomie's easy, pretty makeup and hair are way more "her" than the glammed look she sported at the Globes. No false lashes this time; instead, she emphasized her eyes with smudgy, soft charcoal grey. I adore her in pinks, and notice how the lip colour is a tad more cool-toned than the seamless blush. Long, loose hair was the perfect choice for the very chic, very French details of her outfit.
Michelle's orange lipstick is matchy to her bright dress, and I'm so glad she went for this shade and not the obvious fuchsia. It's echoed in her eyeshadow and contour—and the latter is impressively restrained, given how pale her skin is. Dark brows and brown liner give her eyes amazing definition. Because she has dry skin, it would've been nice to see creamier textures and some shine on the cheeks. I also wish her hairstyle was flatter on top.
I never get tired of red lipstick on Amanda. This one is particularly great, a bold orangey-red with a velvety matte finish and not too precise edges. As usual, she wore it with just mascara and strong brows. But her skin looks dry here (which hasn't been the case in the past, with less makeup on). I like the loose, flipped-to-one-side hairstyle.
Taraji P. Henson
Taraji's side-parted voluminous bob doesn't have quite as much wow factor as her Globes style last year, but it's still great. Her lip colour picks up the same sheer berry tone as the dress, and once again we've got an eyeshadow in the same colour family.
Taraji is wearing: Eye balm • Wrinkle treatment • Serum • Primer • Foundation in Tan • Powder in Banana • Powder in Chestnut • Blush • Highlighter • Setting spray • Eyeshadow • Mascara in Black • Brow pencil • Lip liner in Plum • Lip gloss
Bryce Dallas Howard
Bryce's lipstick is such a lovely pop of coral that suits her colouring. She's doing a warm hue on her eyelids, but her under-eye area looks super-dry, and I think she needs more lash definition. I like the side-swept bangs, and the back of her hair was VERY cool.
Bryce is wearing: Lip crayon in No. 4 Rouge Corail
Assessed individually, I like Taylor's berry lipstick and copper eyeshadow. And she has good brows. It's just that altogether, I don't enjoy these dark colours at all—especially with her streaky-looking hair (although part of the problem might be the lighting). It's actually hard to believe this is the same person. I think she should stick with lighter, brighter shades for a fresher look.
Ariel has such incredible skin... which is why I don't get her need for all this artifice! I do like this orange lipstick and her new, shorter hair length. But this might be the craziest set of false lashes I've EVER seen, and that's saying a lot! The rest of the makeup is mask-like, and I think the black hair is too harsh on her, almost like a wig.
