LeAnn Rimes Country Music Television Awards Makeup

How-To: LeAnn Rimes' CMT Awards Makeup

Last night at the 2008 Country Music Television Awards, LeAnn Rimes looked like she could have been walking down the red carpet in the 1940s.

Old Hollywood glamour never goes out of style and I am happy to see this singer taking some beauty risks. I love the hair, I love the lips, her skin is perfect, but those brows are just a tad unruly and dark.

To find out the details on how you can create this makeup look at home (with slightly improved brows),


  • FACE: LeAnn's skin is naturally pale with a hint of pink undertones. Begin with a clean face that is well moisturized. Then, add a green-tinted concealer to any visible red spots so that you don't draw attention to them. Next, blend a bisque-colored foundation into your face and neck. Finally, add concealer under your eyes and to any areas that are still pinkish.
  • CHEEKS: Dust a deep-pink blush such as Dessert Rose by MAC to the apples of your cheeks and blend outwards. Do not overdo the blush. Remember, you are skipping bronzer, so too much blush will just make you look like a clown. Next, dust a loose powder (it should match your foundation) over your entire face, paying close attention to your t-zone.
  • EYES: Begin by sweeping a bone-colored shadow all over your lid. Then use a golden-bronze shimmery shade like Honesty by MAC just above your lash line and blend it into the crease. Line your upper lashes with black liquid liner, add a few false lashes to the corners of your eyes and then finish with two coats of mascara. For your brows, be sure to fill them in so that they are slightly darker than your hair, but remember to blend well. Tip: Dab a tiny bit of ice-colored highlighter in the inner v of your eyes for a little extra sparkle.
  • LIPS: Since lips are the focal point of this look, it's important to find the best possible shade to suit your skin tone. It looks to me like LeAnn applied a slightly orange creamy color like Rouge Dior Replenishing Lipcolor in Action Red and then applied a golden or transparent gloss on top.
