They say the Screen Actors Guild Awards often help clarify the Oscar picture, as Hollywood’s best and brightest are judged by a panel of their peers. If that’s the case, then February 24 should be a big night for Daniel Day-Lewis, Jennifer Lawrence, Argo, and strapless floor-length gowns. On the beauty front, the show also seemed to indicate an uptick in side-parted glam waves, neutral lips, and sultry smoky eyes, although there were a few surprises to speak of. Below, we’ve outlined our favorite hair and makeup moments from last night’s festivities and made things a little interesting with some friendly competition. Who do you think won best in beauty?
Statement Lips: January Jones vs. Claire Danes
And the Actor goes to…Claire Danes
January Jones gets points for the Bowie-caliber pompadour that she paired with her precisely lined crimson mouth, but Claire Danes wins this category with a completely out-of-the-box plum-stained pout that bordered on chocolate brown courtesy of a layering effort of Laura Mercier Lip Pencils in Coffee Bean and Deep Wine. Fall’s embrace of the mulberry mouth may be losing steam, but don’t be surprised if Danes’ take on the color inspires a whole new crop of followers.
A Cut Above: Freida Pinto vs. Marion Cotillard
And the Actor goes to…Marion Cotillard
Short cuts have been the big story on the runway and red carpet of late, and the SAGs had a few moments of shear genius to speak of, right on cue. Freida Pinto showed off the beautiful cowl-neck of her lilac Roland Mouret gown with a rolled-under bob that we actually had to do a double take to determine if it was faux or real. There was no such confusion with Marion Cotillard’s freshly chopped locks, however. Worn with a deep side part and featuring slightly asymmetrical front panels, Cotillard’s cut wasn’t just the best short story of the night, it was one of its finest beauty moments, period.
Another day, another digital retouching mishap. Today’s offender is InStyle, which has chopped off half of Tina Fey’s torso on its latest cover, as well as erasing any signs that the comedienne has ever smiled, frowned, laughed, or scowled in her entire life. Oops. [Daily Mail]
A magic marker-shaped handheld device that injects a very cold material through small needles to smooth facial wrinkles, without the need for a Botox vial? If pharmaceutical company MyoScience’s negotiations with the FDA continue to go well, it could come true. [WSJ]
Bad news, hipster hair lovers of the world: The trend reports for guys’ tresses are in, and it looks like high, tight, short, and sheared are going to be Fall’s buzz words. Hopefully beards won’t experience the same misfortune (we’ve got a thing for facial hair). [Telegraph]
The royal wedding is about a month away, which means reports on Kate Middleton’s big day beauty regimen are heating up. The latest news is that she has joined her mother Carole’s embrace of the popular French Dukan diet to shed a few pre-wedding pounds. Couple this with a new book by Dr. Pierre Dukan written in English set to hit newsstands in May, and the four-stage, lean-protein meal plan has universal fad written all over it. [Weight World]
Tina Fey has had a topsy-turvy red carpet run over the years, but she seems to have solidified her camera-ready look—the beauty part of it, at least—with a series of sleek and sultry styles of late. The half-up, half-down bouffant situation she sported to the premiere of Date Night in New York City last night was not our favorite, as we prefer the comedienne with a structured up-do or a sweeping side-part-plus-soft-wave combo, but she gave us what we wanted this morning on the Today show, so we’re happy. Which look do you prefer?
Even though she lost out to Tina Fey in the Best Actress in a Comedy category at the 60th annual Emmy Awards last night, Weeds star Mary-Louise Parker deserves an honorable mention here, at the very least for her red-carpet makeup look (don’t get us started on her stellar acting ability, lest we abandon the high road and get into an awards-show politics rant). Parker is known in the beauty world mainly for her porcelain skin, yet it was the lip that makeup artist Tina Turnbow gave her that really stood out yesterday. “She’s not usually a lip person,” Turnbow says of the Showtime star, who gave NARS Funny Face lipliner pencil the go-ahead when she saw how well its blue undertones worked with her décolleté turquoise Cavalli dress. To further bring out the icy pink effect of the color, Turnbow added a touch of NARS powder blush in Desire to Parker’s cheeks, a shade that also skirts the line between cool and warm, adding to the actress’ overall fresh, elegant look. According to Turnbow, the long-lasting matte finish of hot-pink liner (dotted with a bit of balm for moisture) can be a good alternative to the more popular glossy red lip. “It obviously depends on what you’re wearing,” the Beauty.com
