I love awards season. What is better than sitting down on Sunday night to watch hours of fashion and beauty, all while being in the comfort of your own pjs? Between the Golden Globes a few weeks ago and the SAG Awards this past Sunday, there has been a myriad of celeb looks to admire and pull inspiration from! Let’s dive into our favorites from the past two shows…
Emma Stone looked simply stunning at the Globes. That girl really knows how to WORK a red carpet, and both her fashion and beauty choices are just spot-on every time. To complement her deep berry-hued dress, she chose to go with a grey shimmer smokey eye, which I think works incredibly well with her vibrant hair color (doesn’t she have the power to make you want to go red?). Want this sultry look? Start by using a powder eyeshadow brush with a blending brush such as the Royal & Langnickel SILK Angled Blender. To achieve this flawless finish, blending and more blending is the key, so a high-quality blending brush is essential. Use black liner to rim your eyes, but then dip a small liner brush like the SILK Liner Brush into a tiny bit of water, and use the eyeshadow to give your liner a bit of a gun-metal shine!
On the opposite end of the eye spectrum, Alba’s MUA kept her look very feminine and innocent which can be easily reinvented as a day look for anyone that wants to make your eyes pop! She heavily lined only the upper lid, which can be done with a liquid liner or with a smudge pot and a brush. If you’re using a smudge pot, grab a thin but flexible brush, such as the SILK Detail Liner, and apply a small line at first, thickening it as you go. For a little extra sweetness, wing the edges out a bit! To take this from day to night, grab some falsies and apply over the liner, applying mascara to blend them with your real lashes.
At the SAGs Sunday night, Dianna Agron looked absolutely lovely and also sported the heavy top liner like Jessica, but brightened her eyes by using a light, shimmer shadow as an accent both under and over her eyes. To recreate this look, dip the Royal & Langnickel SILK Smudger in the shadow, tap off excess and lightly brush it around your eyes, concentrating on the inner and outer corners and blending in between. Tip: Use off-white shimmer–stark white can be much too harsh for this look!
Emily Blunt emphasized her lips, which not many celebs took the risk to do last Sunday night! The peachy-coral color was a great contrast with her vibrant green dress (Prada, by the way… how appropriate!) and she kept her eyes simpler to let the lip color do the talking. To create an opaque color like Blunt, use a lighter lipstick and a slightly darker lipgloss. If you have a peaches and cream complexion like her, choose a peachy lipstick and top it with a more vibrant coral gloss, such as Revlon’s Coral Reef. This is another look that would be perfect for the workplace or a daytime event, but sorry, cute husband not included!
