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.

Kerry Washington In Prada – 2014 Emmy Awards

KerryWashingtonInPrada2014EmmyAwards

Kerry Washington dazzled everyone who saw her on the red carpet of the 2014 Emmy Awards tonight (August 25) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

The ‘Scandal’ star and new mom wore an eye-catching orange double silk cady strapless column Prada gown with blue, green and clear micro-bed enriched edges and an underlying navy mini skirt embroidered with crystals and paillettes.

A Prada clutch and pumps and Fred Leighton jewelry completed the look.

This dress has everything a memorable red carpet gown should: A fabulous color, an unexpected detail and some drama, and Kerry is the perfect woman to pull it off.

And, lest you ever think Kerry should rest on the laurels of a great gown, she also pulled out an incredible beauty look with a blue smokey eye and new lob hairstyle.

Are you as enchanted as I am?

Kerry Washington In Mary Katrantzou - Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Grants Banquet

Kerry Washington attended the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Grants Banquet held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Thursday (August 14) in Beverly Hills, California joining Kristen Bell.

My senses were set alight not only by her gorgeous strapless Mary Katrantzou Resort 2015 eclectic-print dress but also those two-tone blue toecap Saint Laurent ‘Paris’ pumps.

Styled with delicate gold jewels, kohl-rimmed eyes, a glossy pink lip and a simple ponytail, if I didn’t say it before, thank God she’s back on track.

I covet this look from head to toe.

Kerry Washington In Parker – ‘Day of Indulgence’ Event

Kerry Washington In Parker - 'Day of Indulgence' Event

Kerry Washington was spotted headed to a private residence in Brentwood, California to attend ‘Day of Indulgence’ hosted by producer Jennifer Klein on Sunday (August 10).

Wearing her Sunday best, the new mum looked gorgeous wearing a Parker ‘Whitefield’ fit-and-flare summer-white dress.

Featuring webbed inset stripes on the flared skirt, spaghetti straps and a sporty racerback, the look was styled with a Prada face-print bag and Louis Vuitton ‘Artifice’ wedge sandals which hail from the Spring 2011 collection.

I’m usually longing for a different option to the white dress, black accessories combo, but I have no complaints here. Head-to-toe perfection.

It’s great to see her back to her best following her slight blip.
