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.

Lizzy Caplan In Donna Karan Atelier – 2014 Emmy Awards

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals

Lizzy Caplan hit the red carpet of the 2014 Emmy Awards tonight (August 25) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

The ‘Masters of Sex’ star wore a black and white silk gazar and sheer organza panel Donna Karan Atelier gown with high neck criss-cross straps.

This gown is one of those that you really have to see from every angle to fully appreciate. The unique cut of the bodice and straps looked incredibly striking on Lizzy’s frame, and the surprise white when she turned was a great moment.

Pearl and diamond jewelry, a sleek, low-hanging chignon and smokey eyes finished the look.

This is a big ‘yes’ moment for me on all fronts!

Lizzy Caplan In Valentino – Showtime 2014 Emmy Eve Soiree

Lizzy Caplan In Valentino - Showtime 2014 Emmy Eve Soiree

After a very busy weekend attending the BAFTAs Tea Party and Women In Film Emmy Nominee Celebration, Lizzy Caplan was back on the red carpet on Sunday evening (August 24) for Showtime’s Emmy Eve Soiree held at the Sunset Tower in West Hollywood, California.

Serving up a hat-trick of stellar looks in the space of 2 days, the ‘Masters of Sex’ actress wore a gorgeous Valentino macramé lace maroon halter dress accented with a brown leather neckline, side panel and waist from the Resort 2015 collection.

Looking very statuesque, despite the tea-length, her styling was once again on point with a Judith Leiber clutch and petal-pink Elie Saab sandals.

While I don’t have a crystal ball, I will predict she will knock it out of the fashion ballpark again tonight.

Lizzy Caplan In Cushnie et Ochs & Wes Gordon – BAFTA Los Angeles TV Tea Party & Variety And Women In Film Emmy Nominee Celebration

Lizzy Caplan In Cushnie et Ochs & Wes Gordon - BAFTA Los Angeles TV Tea Party & Variety And Women In Film Emmy Nominee Celebration

Lizzy Caplan was also party hopping yesterday evening (August 24); starting at the BAFTA Los Angeles TV Tea Party before moving onto the Variety And Women In Film Emmy Nominee Celebration.

BAFTA Los Angeles TV Tea Party: Chartreuse is perhaps not the easiest colour to wear or accessorize. However, the actress does both with great aplomb styling her Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2014 sheer sleeves frock with bright red Rupert Sanderson ‘Elba’ pumps and pink MICHAEL Michael Kors ‘Elsie’ clutch. I know what you’re thinking…colourwise this shouldn’t work, but does.

Variety And Women In Film Emmy Nominee Celebration: Changing for the next event, the actress selected a two-piece, ab-baring Wes Gordon Spring 2014 ensemble consisting of a solid black cropped top and houndstooth pencil skirt. Oozing a cool effortless vibe, the look was styled with burgundy Christian Louboutin ‘Bootypump’ ankle boots (which I can’t say I love wholeheartedly) and another MICHAEL Michael Kors ‘Elsie’ clutch this time in black.

While I love both looks, the colour comb in the first just blows me away.

Lizzy Caplan In Marchesa – CBS, CW And Showtime Party

Lizzy Caplan In Marchesa - CBS, CW And Showtime Party

Lizzy Caplan was back on the red carpet for the 2014 Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour – CBS, CW And Showtime Party held at the Pacific Design Center on Thursday (July 17) in West Hollywood, California.

On this occasion the actress wore a Marchesa Fall 2014 strapless dress featuring a crescent-shaped neckline and copper embroidery throughout.

I love how she styled the look with rose-gold accessories including Erickson Beamon jewelry to complement the threadwork on her dress; however, even though her Sophia Webster ‘Lacey’ strappy sandals mimic the runway styling, a simpler style of sandal – or keeping the sandals and shortening the frock – would’ve worked better for me as I feel the dress length and sandals are at odds.
