SAG Awards' Red Carpet Looks: America Ferrera
at last night's SAG Awards, America Ferrera looked exquisite thanks to makeup that was inspired by her Vera Wang beige chiffon gown with black trim accented by a giant flower at her hip.
makeup artist Linda Hay wanted to give her a fresh and romantic feel, yet very modern, to compliment the gentle nature of the dreamy gown. so, Hay decided on a very simple eye, a peachy cheek and a deep red lip.
Linda began creating her look by lightly evening America’s complexion using YSL's Touche Eclat where necessary, around the eyes, the nose and the corners of the mouth, followed by a light dusting of powder. she then applied Shu Uemura’s Peche directly to the apple of the cheek for a fresh, youthful look.
for America's eyes, she drew a fine line on the top eyelid with Jouer Eye Definer in Mure. using a large flat eye brush, Linda gently swept a shimmering white shadow from Cle de Peau #14 Eye Color Quad, across the entire lid, up and into the brow. with a smaller pointed eye brush she lined the silver shadow from the same palette to the bottom lid and from the inside corner to the outside corner of the eye. the inside of the eye was lined with Jouer Eye Clarifier Clair. finally, Linda applied three generous coats of Chanel mascara to both top and bottom lashes and gave the brow a strong and well defined look using Anastasia's Brow Kit.
on the lips, she used MAC's Viva Glam Lipstick.
