Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

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.

Natalie Dormer In Mulberry - mtvU Fandom Awards

Natalie Dormer attended the mtvU Fandom Awards held on Thursday (July 24) in San Diego, California during Comic-Con 2014.

The ‘Game of Thrones’ actress, who has re-shaved the side of her hair for her role as Cressida in ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’, selected a Mulberry Resort 2015 look.

Her all-black Mulberry look freckled with red leaf embroidery consisted of a wrap jacket and a pair of neat shorts which possessed just the right amount of spark and personality for this event.

Smouldering, as she does on the red carpet, the actress styled her look with patent-leather pumps, with kohl-rimmed eyes accentuating that come-hither glare.

Natalie Dormer In Roksanda Ilincic - InStyle Best Of British Talent Pre-BAFTA Party

Natalie Dormer joined Anna Friel on the red carpet at InStyle magazine’s ‘The Best of British Talent’ Pre-BAFTA party held at Dartmouth House on Tuesday (February 4) in London.

The ‘Game of Thrones’ actress wore a Roksanda Ilincic Spring 2014 short-sleeved dress with a front vent, inspired by Josef Albers’ bold colour-blocked artwork, in shades of orange, blush and black.

Opting for black Nicholas Kirkwood pumps, she further pepped up the look with a multi-panelled orange-and-gold-tone ‘Put A Ring On It’ clutch courtesy of Stark.

What happened to the part-shaven hairdo she dramatically debuted at the SAG Awards? It would appear that she has simply flipped her hair over the right side.

Kohl-rimmed eyes and a pink lip rounded out her less dramatic, yet chic look.
