Did you catch the Grammys last night? The former FLOTUS made a standing o-worthy appearance in a shimmering olive Sachin & Babi pantsuit, JLo took on Motown, Alicia pounded two sets of Keys, Katy Perry looked like she fell off a cake, and Bebe Rexha proved a size 8 can still look red hot.

Probably the most female-centric Grammys in history.

One of my favorite looks came from Best New Artist winner Dua Lipa. Reminiscent of Liz Hurley’s iconic safety-pinned Versace, Lipa accepted her award in a black, white, and gold-adorned gown. Makeup artist Lilly Keys complemented her sleek bobbed hair products by Charlotte Tilbury.

Here’s a breakdown of the Charlotte Tilbury products used to get Lipa’s look.

COMPLEXION

  • Magic Cream primed Lipa’s face for a smooth, glowy canvas.
  • Brightening Youth Glow and Wonder Glow were tapped in lightly, followed by Magic Foundation for a flawless finish.
  • For areas that needed some extra coverage, Keys combined Magic Away and The Retoucher concealers, plus Mini Miracle Eye Wand under her eyes.

CHEEKS

EYES

  • Shades from the Pillow Talk Luxury Palette were used to prime her eyes, followed by some shimmer from Eyes to Mesmerize in Bette.
  • Color Chameleon eye shadow pencils in Amber Haze and Golden Quartz deepened the color.
  • Rock N Kohl eyeliner in Barbarella Brown added further dimension.
  • The Feline Flick liner created the final statement cat eye
  • Legendary Lashes Volume 2 mascara was used on Lipa’s top and bottom lashes

GTL: Keri Russell

28 Jan

Keri Russell - SAG 2019I loved the ease and wearability of Keri Russell‘s makeup at the SAG Awards last night in Los Angeles. Makeup artist Tamah Krinsky says the inspiration was “Modern day Grace Kelly… Classic with a little edge.”

The look was fresh and dewy skin with natural lips and a pop of color on her eyes. Easily replicable!

Below is a breakdown of the Lâncome products Krinsky used on Russell. GET THE LOOK…

SKIN: Russell’s skin was prepped with Absolue Precious Oil, then followed with Absolue Revitalizing & Brightening Rich Cream and Visionnaire Yeux. Finally a light layer of Prep & Hydrate Primer was applied to prime her skin for makeup.

FACE: Lancôme Skin Feels Good in 025 Soft Beige was applied with a soft brush and finger-tapped in to keep the look sheer. Blush Subtil in Cedar Rose was dabbed on the apples of her cheeks.

 

EYES: Brow Define Pencil in 06 Brown was used to lightly fill gabs in her brows. (Celebrities: Just like us!) The beautiful lavender and plum hues came from the Color Design 5 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in 300 Amethyst Glam. To soften to look, the base color from the Color Design 5 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in 500 Jade Fever was applied along her brow bone and in the crease of her eyes. Two coats of both Monsieur Big Waterproof Mascara and Definicils Mascara in Deep Black were applied on her top and bottom lashes. 

 

LIPS: Russell’s look was topped on with a few coats of L’Absolu Lacquer Gloss in 236 Pour Toujours. Simply beautiful!
