With the awards season over and done with, I've decided to compile a photo-list of my favourite red-carpet makeups, and some simple tips on how to copy the star's gorgeous makeup looks. Of course I couldn't resist adding a couple of doozies at the end...just my own opinion as a makeup artist.
In no particular order, the awards for Best Red Carpet Makeup go to.....
|Cate Blanchett at the Oscars, looking flawless in neutral tones, with glowing peachy cheeks. She has lash extensions on to enhance and open her eyes, and barely-there lipstick. Try a shimmery peach blusher and lots of mascara for Cate's look.|
|Naomi Watts at the Oscars, sporting a strong red lip, and bang-on-trend with an even stronger brow. Try out your red lippie with minimal eye makeup, and get your brow pencil out and fill out your brows to mimic this look.|
|Well now, she may have had a few "little jobs" done, but I think Bette looked just fab at the Oscars this year. Her makeup was age-appropriate, with emphasis on her eyes, and plump apricot-toned cheeks.|
And now for the not-so-alluring makeups of 2014. The makeup "razzie" awards go to....
|I'm sorry Lily, but this is just terrible. Surely when attending the BAFTAs, you have access to the best makeup artists in Britain? Lily's messy black eyes, poorly-shaped eyebrows and her dry looking lips make this the worst look of the season.|
Ahhhh, so now I've got that out of my system, I'd better get back to work! I hope you've enjoyed browsing, and have picked up a few tips along the way.
