And the winner is… our BH Beauties! Between the Grammys, SAG Awards and the upcoming Oscars, awards season has us feeling all sorts of ways. The stars go full glam and show off their signature makeup styles: rosy tints of blush, vampy lips, fierce wings and more to make a statement on the red carpet. As we watch from the couch, the reviews come in. “That eyeshadow is everything!” or “WTF was she thinking?” Just us? Okay. This award season we’re taking a look at our favorite stars and their award season style. From the girly glam of Emily Blunt and Cardi B to the smokey style of Lady Gaga, you’ll be dying to recreate these red carpet looks!
Cardi B OWNED the Grammy’s - giving an incredible performance and walking away with an award in hand! Her look was equal parts millennial and old Hollywood - opting for soft pink shadow that matched her epic clam-like gown and head-to-toe pearls. While her killer cut crease and mile-long lashes were done with entirely Pat McGrath products, you can easily recreate Cardi’s Grammy look with a few BH faves! Our Ultimate Matte palette has multiple shades of pink to sweep across your upper and lower lashline - just like Cardi did - and our Studio Pro Lashes in D-303 will frame your eyes for every photo op!
Nobody does shocking looks better than this incredibly talented pop diva… meat dress, anyone? However, she chose to keep it simple for the Grammys with a classic smokey eye - lining them in black and drawing attention to the outer corners and creases. She paired it with nude lips with a touch of highlighter… a personal favorite of ours! Of course, you can also opt for a bombshell red lip for major movie star vibes. She went back to her bold roots for her stunning performance of “Shallow”... in which she embellished her top lid in crystal eyeliner for epic sparkle. Dip into one of our Diamond Dazzlers shades and apply with our Silicone Paddle Applicators to replicate this sparkly liner!
When you’re hosting the Grammys, you need to look the part… and Alicia Keys delivered! The music legend has owned the “no makeup” look for years now, and she TOTALLY rocked it on the red carpet. With minimal eye makeup, all attention was on her flawless skin and natural glow. Seriously, how is one person this gorgeous? To emulate her complexion perfection, we recommend our Naturally Flawless Liquid Foundation and Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer. If you’re feeling a bit more daring, add a swipe of shimmer from our Duolight Highlight palette onto the cheek to glow like this stunning songstress.
Susan Kelechi Watson
When you’re walking the red carpet at the SAG Awards, why not kill it with color? “This Is Us” star Susan Kelechi Watson did just that with a mix of vivid hues across her lids, including green and yellow for aquamarine vibes that expertly matched her yellow dress. The golden shimmer on her upper and lower lash line really made her brown eyes POP, and we loved seeing such an eye-catching look for award season. How to recreate this charismatic look? None other than our Take Me Back to Brazil palette! It features every color you need to create a rainbow eye like no other.
Makeup magic… what else could be expected from Mary Poppins? This movie star chose pink, pink, and more pink for the SAG Awards - with a rosy tint on her cheeks and super-sweet bubblegum lips. But don’t think she doesn’t have a wild side! Her bold brows perfectly frame her striking eyes to add edge to this monochromatic makeup - a true testament to her wide range of acting abilities! Emulate her strong brows with our Studio Pro Ultimate Brow Palette, and swipe on our Liquid Linen lippies in Natalie or Shelby for pink perfection!
