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.

She's usually cute, but not loving this look on her. It looks like her brows are growing out of her nose in this pic!

Her eyebrows look like they are crawing down her face. Gross. I'm too distracted by them to notice anything else (well, I also noticed her dress - which I hated).

The hair looks great. I think her brows are looking so good because of shadows????

You know, the more that I look at that picture, the more I wonder if it's the makeup that is the problem, or just that she's not that good-looking?

i agree with bailaoragaditana. she should at least look like shes wearing natural makeup but she looks painted. she should have tried more dewy skin and a more sheer lipstick. also, the orangey color on the eyes looks weird and the brows are also too painted on.

Ooh - not loving this at all. Too much is 'off' it's just throwing me.

Her brows are just... and her lipstick is wrong somehow too. She just looks painted, rather than old-school glam. There's a difference, and she's on the wrong side.

It looks like there's contouring powder under her brow by the top of the bridge of her nose, and it makes her look...tired, and like her eyes are too close. And, it looks like she's wearing too much makeup. I'm not digging it, she's naturally pretty and can do better with less!

Oh, man. I can't get behind this look on her. Charlize Theron does the old-school glam so much better. Though, if the lips were a bit more sheer and the makeup a bit less matte, and the eyebrows fixed, I guess it would look good.
