At tonight’s 29th annual Screen Actors Guild awards in LA, the beauty and fashion complemented each other so harmoniously to create some of the most head-turning looks we’ve ever seen grace a red carpet. The celebrity makeup artists in charge of painting the faces of Hollywood’s elite gave us full-on glam tonight, with one trend standing out from the rest: the perfect nude lip. These A-listers nailed it, and then some.
A nominee for her incredible role in The Dropout, Amanda Seyfried’s throwback look was a crowd favorite. “The inspiration was based on the dress and the ’60s vibe,” says celebrity makeup artist Genevieve Herr. “I decided to stay in the ’60s theme and do a strong eyeliner paired with a subtle lip to keep it modern.”
Herr lined and filled the lip with Lancôme Le Lip Liner Pencil in Bronzelle ($28) and then topped them with Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Cream Lipstick in 250 Tendre Mirage ($35) “for a subtle, neutral lip for that perfect modern finish.”
“For Ashley’s glam we really wanted to go for a bronzed sultry look,” says celebrity makeup artist Jenna Nicole.
Nicole used Jouer Cosmetics Long-Wear Crème Lip Liner in Nude ($18) on the Emily in Paris star, and then topped it with Long-Wear Lip Topper in Skinny Dip ($20), a metallic, shimmery golden-nude. “This was stunning! And a must-have,” she adds.
“Aubrey’s stunning metallic sequin gown felt like a modern take on a 1930’s screen siren and it immediately made me want to do a ‘bronzed goddess’ makeup look!” says celebrity makeup artist Kathy Jeung. “A sexy, smoky kohl-rimmed, bronzed eye with radiant, glowing skin and soft lips to perfectly complement!”
“My inspiration was drawn from the detail and style of Antonia’s dusty lavender dress,” says celebrity makeup artist Misha Shahzada. “Its ethereal simplicity aligns with the overall soft makeup and eye moment.”
On the Ginny & Georgia star’s lips, Shahzada used CHANEL Rouge Coco Baume Hydrating Conditioning Lip Balm ($45), CHANEL Le Crayon Lèvres Longwear Lip Pencil in Nude Brun ($32) and CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in Intemporelle ($45).
“My inspiration for the makeup is always based on the beautiful copper crystal dress and jewelry,” says celebrity makeup artist Hung Vanngo.
On the Ozark and Inventing Anna actress’s lips, Vanngo used CHANEL Le Crayon Lèvres Longwear Lip Pencil in Nude Brun ($32) and CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in Intuitive ($45).
The White Lotus star and Italian beauty Simona Tabasco stunned at tonight’s show. Celebrity makeup artist Mai Quynh used Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk and Matte Revolution in Pillow Talk.
“For Simona’s makeup look, I wanted the focus to be on her eyes and to keep the makeup fun and flirty with the rest of the face soft and neutral.”
