How-To: Becki Newton's SAG Makeup
Last night, Becki Newton arrived at the 2008 SAG Awards looking like an ethereal beauty. Dressed in a long, white tiered-beaded dress, she let her clean, fresh face take center stage. Since so many of you loved her look, I've decided to break down her makeup for you to recreate at home. Also, I wouldn't want you to miss out on any of the other beauty looks from the show, so be sure to check them out. For product and application suggestions regarding Becki's fresh face,
- FACE: Begin with clean, conditioned skin. The first thing you'll want to do is add a primer to your face. Something like Eve Pearl's Priming Moisturizer not only will create a smooth canvas but it's also very nourishing. Next, add a touch of concealer under your eyes and to any areas that are red or blotchy. Finish with a creamy foundation such as DuWop Revolotion Face in Laura C, which is lightweight and natural looking. Lastly, you can dust a little bit of powder over your skin, but be sure to tap the brush so it's not too heavy and blend well. You don't want to look too done up, just polished.
- CHEEKS: Next, add a little bit of luminizer to your cheeks, nose, and forehead. Try Lancome's Photonic for a radiant glow. Then, add bronzer and blend well. You want to warm up the skin but not overdo it. Lastly, apply a medium pink blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend outwards. Sephora Blush Me Mono in Meringue Jalouse 2 is a rich, shimmery rose.
- EYES: Blend a few neutral-colored shadows together. Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow in Demure is perfect, and you can also use the darkest color as a liner. Finish with two coats of black mascara and add a few false lash pieces just on the ends to open up the eyes. Also, be sure and fill in your brows to match your hair. I really like DuWop Browwow Palette since it's so customizable.
- LIPS To achieve this look, apply a pretty pink creamy color like Chanel's Rouge Allure Lipstick in Desirable and top it with a high shine, shimmery light rose gloss such as Bare Escentuals Lip Gloss in Garden. No lip liner is necessary. Now, you're red-carpet ready!
