Natalie Dormer In House of Holland – Extremely Piaget Launch Event

Natalie Dormer In House of Holland - Extremely Piaget Launch Event

Natalie Dormer attended the Extremely Piaget launch event on Thursday (October 9) in Beverly Hills, California.

The British actress wore a quirky British brand, donning a short-sleeved below-the-knee dress from House of Holland’s Resort 2015 collection.

I love how the colourful zebra print adds a wild and cool graphic to this semi-casual ensemble, which she polishes with Jimmy Choo strappy sandals, a Lulu Guinness classic perspex lips clutch and, of course, a Piaget timepiece.

Christian Dior Spring 2015 Front Row

Christian Dior Spring 2015 Front Row

The Christian Dior front row is one I always look forward to during fashion week; however, on this occasion I was somewhat underwhelmed by the looks the ladies were displaying this afternoon (September 26) in Paris, France.

Marion Cotillard: The French actress and Dior ambassador kept her look uber-simple wearing a chic LBD with cobalt-blue velvet ankle boots. I don’t by any means dislike the look, but as always I want just a little bit more from Marion.

Olivia Palermo: The only person who piqued my interest was Olivia. If anyone can spark some life into an LBD it’s her. Her double-breasted coat dress with sheer sleeves was accented with a Dior Resort 2014 scarf, dual-colour Dior bag and a her favourite Jimmy Choo ‘Dream’ tassel-accented sandals.

Dakota Fanning: Wearing a black Dior Couture dress, the black accessories I don’t mind, but I couldn’t help but wish for a pop of colour to the lips or a new hairdo (as always) from Dakota.

Natalie Dormer In Emilio Pucci – 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards

Natalie Dormer In Emilio Pucci - 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards
Natalie Dormer was also on the red carpet for the 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards, held in association with Hugo Boss at The Royal Opera House in London, England on Tuesday (September 2).

The ‘Game of Thrones’ actress wasn’t hard to spot in her bright marigold keyhole dress, modified from the design that took to the Emilio Pucci Fall 2014 runway, which had me temporarily missing the liquid draping of the long gown.

But this little number was all about the retro glitz, accessorized with black strappy sandals, a black and gold hardware clutch, and the requisite kohl-lined cat eye.

With those bouncy bombshell curls, I nearly forgot about her half-shaven ‘Hunger Games’ ’do.

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.
