Suki Waterhouse and Jessica Biel Go to Eyeliner Extremes

-------

From London to Los Angeles, it was all about liner last night. Across the pond for Kate Moss’ Topshop launch, model Suki Waterhouse relied on makeup pro Charlotte Tilbury and her crew (as did Moss, Cara Delevingne, and Sienna Miller) to amp up her look from an earlier photo shoot. “We had to do a quick off-on turnaround to do the right base for the red carpet,” said Tilbury. The face painter’s eponymous Rock ‘N’ Kohl in Bedroom Black was applied in a feline shape, then smoked out underneath with shadow. On the other end of the eyeliner spectrum in sunny California, Jessica Biel opted for a subtle, sophisticated gray etched along her top lashes only. Whether you want to channel that cool Cali girl vibe, or become a badass Brit, it’s apparently as easy as picking up a pencil.

Pink Ladies

Braids and bold lips abounded on the red carpet in 2013, but oddly enough, so did pink hair color. From young starlets to a more, ahem, mature crowd, rose-tinted strands made an appearance at multiple awards shows and galas. Diane Kruger dyed the ends of her knotted ponytail a shocking shade for the Met ball, while Sienna Miller opted for an allover pastel hue at the British Fashion Awards. And then there was Helen Mirren, who at 68 showed her true colors at the BAFTAs. Mirren may have played the conservative royal mum (for which she won an Oscar in 2007), but this beauty risk might even make the Queen blush.

Sienna’s Rosy Outlook

-------

The 67th Annual Tony Awards - Red CarpetCyndi Lauper’s Kinky Boots was the big winner at the Tony Awards this weekend in New York, taking home the night’s top prize, but Sienna Miller got our vote on the red carpet. The actress was in town to support her fiancé, Orphans star Tom Sturridge, who was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role, and she sported a gorgeous dusty-rose lipstick for the occasion, with a complementary floral headband to match. The unexpected pout color offered a great alternative to more common shades of berry or red and looked just stunning with Miller’s subtle glow—don’t you think?

The Met Gala: Best Of Beauty

-------

The sea of Givenchy dresses aside, last night’s Met gala was as much about beauty as it was about fashion—which shouldn’t be that much of a surprise; after all, punk’s lasting legacy has done just as much for the advancement of black eyeliner and hair color as it has for studs and safety pins. Miley’s spikes, Madonna’s black bob, and Diane von Furstenberg’s epic curls come to mind as some of the evening’s biggest beauty moments, although there was plenty more to talk about—or text about, as it were; we were engaged in a steady stream of phone commentary with no less than three style-savvy friends at once as the chaos and couture unfolded on the red carpet. Below, we’ve listed a few of our favorite punk trends, reimagined for the red carpet—and in face-off form—because while the Met isn’t an awards show, per se, there’s nothing wrong with a little friendly competition.

The Look: Peroxide Goes Platinum
The Contenders: Anne Hathaway vs. Nicole Richie
Nicole Richie and her hairstylist, Luke Chamberlain, set out to make a color statement on the red carpet via Chamberlain’s silver-white, spray-in streaks, but the night’s mane event belonged to Anne Hathaway, who showed up to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with a brand-new, bright blonde dye job. “I decided to go for a look that [was] glam, edgy, and yet very youthful and fun,” celebrity hairstylist Sascha Breuer explained of the slicked up style she gave Hathaway’s crop, which was freshly bleached courtesy of Marie Robinson.

“I’d Like To Thank My Skin Finisher…” How To Get Hollywood’s Golden Glow

-------

We won’t pretend to be big Giuliana Rancic fans, but last night, as the E! correspondent was live on the Golden Globes red carpet, she did make our lives a little easier with some stealth beauty reporting. “I’m standing right next to her, and I want everyone to know she’s hardly wearing any makeup,” Rancic said of an Erdem-clad Sienna Miller, whose skin, for the record, looked positively glowing. After a little sleuthing, we learned that Miller didn’t need much in the way of foundation and bronzer, because she had enlisted the services of Fiona Locke. “All of what I do is done within a couple of days in advance. [Yesterday] was the big reveal. It has a Christmas-morning feel,” explains the St. Tropez skin-finishing expert who has become something of a secret weapon for the Hollywood elite. “Ninety-eight percent is about the confidence [self-tanner] gives you, and not having to worry at all about your body—it’s that feeling-great factor,” Locke says, pointing out that a little skin finishing goes a long way on the red carpet. Quick to dispel the long-held stigma attached to more primitive forms of insta-tan products, Locke points out that the practice of booking a custom self-bronzing appointment before awards season is as commonplace these days as securing a hair-and-makeup team. The artistry that Locke and her glow-giving cohorts bring to the table further helps the likes of Nashville‘s Connie Britton, Miller, and perhaps most important, Amy Poehler—the evening’s cohost—feel and look great. Here, Locke reveals the insider secrets to a great, effortless bronze—no streaks or sun (or orange after-effects) required.

So how far out are you typically working with your celebrity clients in advance of an awards show?
If we’re trying for a darker, more dramatic color, we tend to do it closer to the event. Some people I do two to three days in advance because I really want the color to fade a little bit beforehand to give a really supple finish to the skin.

How does the process evolve, as far as arriving at the right skin tint for each client?
I often take into account what they’re wearing—it’s sort of like getting ready for your wedding. [Amy and I] talked about how many wardrobe changes there would be. But the biggest part of her look was having her feel confident that no matter what outfit she put on, there was no need to add body makeup, because this beautiful golden color would be there. I worked with her on Saturday morning, so she wasn’t afraid to have a nice healthy amount of color that looked very fresh for Sunday.

Do you typically go with a spray or a buff-on mousse for something like the Globes?
I went with St. Tropez Skin Finishing solution spray. It’s the same formula as the classic self-tanner mousse. In some cases, I will use the bronzing mousse and mitt, depending on variation, but it is the same formula. The spray is good if you have time limitations—Amy had rehearsals all day—as it doesn’t take a lot of time to apply and allows me to do a little bit of contouring if needed.

What about on the face? Do you use the same spray?
I do actually use the spray on the face. It’s absolutely gorgeous. Because of the fairness of Amy’s hair, it looked so pretty on her face. I definitely spray a little less onto the face, but I do love the blend it gives from the chest to the neck. The [stage] lights do wash you out, too, and in HD, everything shows up. The skin finishing balances out any unevenness. It takes the edge off, and to leave it without any color, you tend to get what we refer to as a “floating head” in the industry.
