SAG Awards Beauty

If any of you read my Golden Globes Beauty post, you know I am absolutely obsessed with awards shows.  Tonight the Screen Actors Guild Awards were presented on TNT, and I have to say I was kind of underwhelmed.  January Jones and Natalie Portman both tried retro, sculpted wave hairstyles that were far from thrilling.  Claire Danes had a ton of shine going on: great on your hair, not on your face (I died for Claire's dress, though!).  Don't get me wrong, there were some amazing looks coming from the stars; Jennifer Lawrence, Sofia Vergara, Hilary Swank and Heather Morris all looked stunning.  The best beauty looks belonged to Mila Kunis and Amy Adams.

Besides Mila's highlights (which are absolutely amazing), her smoky eyes never fail.  I'd go so far as to say she has the best eye makeup in Hollywood.  She offset her green eyes with tons of blackened navy eyeliner and soft grey shadow.  She finished the look with a pale pink lip that isn't too matte or chalky.  For a similar look, I'd suggest MAC Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Print.

Next up is Amy Adams, who was one of my favorites simply because of her amazing pony tail.  I am a sucker for a sleek pony, and this is one of the best I've seen.  Amy usually sticks to a subdued makeup palette (I don't think I've ever seen her do anything too wild except for red lips), which is wonderful because she always looks polished and fresh.  To create a beautifully smooth pony, try L'Oreal Texture Expert Smooth Essence styling cream to start, and finish with Infinium 3 working spray.

I'm really looking forward to seeing all of the wonderful looks at the Academy Awards on February 27th.  What were your favorite looks at the Screen Actors Guild Awards?  Your least favorite?  Leave a comment and let me know!

  1. Loved mila kunis's look...can you recommend a lip gloss that looks like hers?

  2. I wouldn't use a lipgloss- her lips are pretty matte, so I would suggest NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Madere or MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in Velvet Teddy.

  3. Do you recommend liner with lipstick

  4. I loved Amy Adams's ponytail too... She must have extentions huh?

  5. Yes, always, try NARS Lip Pencil in Fantasia, one of my favorites.
