Not sure about you, but I thought Michelle Williams looked stunning at Sunday night’s SAG awards. And, though I don’t have the cojones to chop my hair off to sport an adorable pixie cut like Ms. Williams’, her fresh faced makeup look is one that I will wear over and over again. Perfect for a night out, but wearable enough for a daytime event like a wedding or baby shower. Here’s how to recreate the look:
Step 1: Even out your skin tone and hide any imperfections with a glow-enhancing foundation. Try Lancome Teint Miracle, $39.
Step 2: Sweep a bit of peachy bronzed colored blush on your cheekbones. Blend very well until the color just fades into the rest of your skin. Try Maybelline New York Dream Bouncy Blush in Peach Satin or Coffee Cake, $7.99.
Step 3: Blend a champagne-colored eyeshadow base on your eyelids — from lashlines to creases. Try Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Sin, $19.
Step 4: Blend a bit of taupey/brown eyeshadow along your creases to subtly define your eyes.
Step 5: Line top lids with black liquid or gel eyeliner (try Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner in Matte Black, $23). Make the line a bit thicker as you reach your outer corners. Not skilled at applying liquid or gel? Follow these expert eyeliner tips for help.
Step 6: Line your bottom lashlines with a metallic silver eye pencil. Try MAC Glitter and Ice Technakohl Liner in Silver Skates, $16 (limited edition).
Step 7: Finish the eyes by applying black mascara on top and bottom lashes.
