Emmy Awards Beauty Trend Spotting: The New Nude Lip

Emmy Awards Beauty Trend Spotting The New Nude Lip

This isn’t the traditional nude that camouflages your lips, making them unnoticeable. The new nude lips actually accentuate the natural tones of your skin allowing lips to pop in the subtlest way. Take cue from Julia Roberts, Kerry Washington, Lizzy Caplan, and Natalie Dorimer who were amongst the many celebs that flaunted the updated au naturel trend on the red carpet at the 2014 Emmy Awards.

Carole Gonzalez balanced Kerry Washington’s navy smokey eye with an updated nude lip. Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Warm Caramel was used to make her neutral pout pop. The shimmering shade provides sheer wash of color and is ideal for complexions with warm undertones. When choosing a nude it’s important to pay attention to your skin’s undertones.

Los Angeles based celebrity makeup artist, Jake Bailey played up the flesh tones on Natalie Dorimer. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide- On Lip Pencil in Naked was used to line her lips. You can even make more room in your clutch and leave this one at home. This waterproof liner will get you through the entire evening. It also doubles as a primer to prep lips for lipstick or a gloss.

Bailey topped off Dorimer’s look with L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Pink Perseverance. This shade works well on those who have cool undertones and it won’t leave lips feeling dry like other stains.

Get The Look: Natalie Dormer’s Emmy Award Defined Eyes

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - ArrivalsCelebrity Makeup Artist Jake Bailey created Natalie Dormer’s beauty look for the 2014 Emmy Awards.

Talking about his beauty inspiration, Jake said “The focus of Natalie’s look was most definitely her eyes. She has such gorgeous blue almond-shaped eyes and I really wanted to showcase them.”

Here’s how to get the look.

When doing this much eye makeup, Jake always begins with the eyes so that any eyeshadow that falls on the face during application can be cleaned up afterwards, before applying foundation or blush.

He began by lining her top lash line with Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Perversion and blending it softly with his fingertip. Then he applied a warm shimmery brown shade, Lancome Color Design Shadow in Pose, all over her lids and into the crease. He lined her lower lash line with Urban Decay’s 24/7 liner in Smog, blending it with his fingertip to soften. Then he applied a pair of mink lashes from Velour called ‘Are Those Real?’ and coated them with Urban Decay Mascara in Perversion.

Once the eyes were finished, Jake buffed a small amount of Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Creamy Vanilla over her skin using a soft flat-tipped kabuki brush.

Warming her cheeks using a combo of equal parts Le Blush Crème de Chanel blush in Affinite and NARS Luminizer in Copacabana, he mixed the two on the back of his hand to create a custom glowy blush.

He then dusted her face with a touch of Covergirl Clean Pressed Powder in Ivory. Once powdered he used NARS Contour Blush in Olympia to accentuate her cheekbones by blending a small amount into the hollows of her cheeks.

Jake finished the look by lining her lips with Urban Decay 24/7 lip liner in Naked and topping it with L’Oreal Color Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Pink Perseverance.

Get The Look: Zooey Deschanel’s Feminine and Fierce Emmy Awards Makeup

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - ArrivalsCelebrity makeup artist Jorjee Douglass created Zooey Deschanel’s feminine and fierce look for the Emmy Awards, giving her a fun, youthful makeup look created by using Charlotte Tilbury products.

“Normally for Zooey I use a coral-coloured blush,” says Jorjee about how Zooey’s bright Oscar De La Renta gown encouraged her to try something new. “Charlotte Tilbury blush in Love Is The Drug gave Zooey just that subtle pop of pink that she needed!”

Here’s how to create the look.

Jorjee started by hydrating her skin to reduce any signs of dullness before hitting the red carpet with Charlotte’s Magic Cream – a product that helps treat and transform tired skin.
Then, she prepped her face and eyes with The Retoucher Conceal & Treat Stick, which helped Zooey’s eyeshadow glide on smoothly and easily when applied to the lids.

Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow was mixed together with foundation and lightly applied all over the face to create just the right amount of low-lit glimmer to what was otherwise a youthful, matte look made possible with the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder which helped to control shine.

Mixing-and-matching copper colours from two Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palettes in The Dolce Vita and The Golden Goddess ensured a pearly, beautifully radiant accentuated eye.

To make Zooey’s eyes pop, Jorjee first dusted the lash line with a liquid liner then used Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Colour Morphing Eyeshadow in Champagne Diamonds, with a Dark Pearl shade being used to accentuate the lash line by smudging the liner slightly.

Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Swish & Pop Blusher in Love Is The Drug was applied to create a youthful flush with a fresh finish.

Finally, Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre in Ibiza Nights was applied for a brilliant mirror-shine finish that helped to create a 3-dimensional, voluminous pout.

Lisa began by tracing the lash line with Tom Ford Liquid Eye Defining Pen and extending it out to create a cat eye, before applying Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in ‘Rosegold’ across the lid, followed by Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in ‘Cocoa Mirage’.

She used the flat brown shade to contour and the bronze-brown shade dusted over the top and blended out and up towards the brow, filling in her brows softly with Clé de Peau Eyebrow Pencil.

Get The Look: Nina Dobrev’s Let’s Be Cops’ LA Premiere Glow

Premiere Of Twentieth Century Fox's "Let's Be Cops" - ArrivalsCelebrity makeup artist Beau Nelson worked with Nina Dobrev for the Los Angeles premiere of ‘Let’s Be Cops’ last week.

“Nina and I wanted to do something simple and fresh to complement her Zuhair Murad beaded dress”, said Beau.

Here’s how to get the look.

Because Nina was so tanned from her recent vacation to Bali, Beau used M.A.C. Face and Body Foundation in C5 to even her skin tone on her face and match it with her body.

He then used Cinema Secrets Concealer where needed for extra coverage and By Terry Touche Veloutee Pen under her eyes to cancel out any darkness.

Setting with Laura Mercier Brightening Powder under the eyes and La Mer Powder all over the face, he brought back a glow by spraying M.A.C. Fix+ on the sides of the face, avoiding the centre completely.

On her eyes he used a simple wash of the taupe shade from the Chanel Tissé Rivoli Shadow Quad, and L’Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara in Black.

On her cheeks, Beau used Hourglass Cosmetics Crème Bronzer and Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate to contour her cheekbones and jawline, enhancing what she naturally has.

Lips were kept simple with just a coat of NARS Larger Than Life Lipgloss in ‘Paris Follies’.
