Love Lea’s style? Here’s makeup artist Melanie Inglessis’s exact process:
STEP 1: Melanie mixed Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in Golden Beige 6 and Caramel 8 and applied them using a wet sponge to create a dewy finish.
STEP 2: To contour Lea’s cheekbones, she applied L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Color Lift Blush in Nude Lift under the cheekbone and L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Color Lift Blush in Peach Gold Lift on the apple of the cheek to add freshness to the look.
STEP 3: Creating a soft smokey eye, she blended the lightest and darkest shades of L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad in Cupa Joe. She used the lightest shade on the brow bone and inner corners of the eyes to highlight and placed the darkest brown shade along the lash line for definition. To finish it off, she blended the shadow to create depth.
STEP 4: Melanie then used L’Oréal Paris Le Kohl Pencil Smooth Defining Eyeliner in Café to define the lash line and smudged it out, on both the top and bottom lids. She finished the eye with a couple coats of Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara in Blackest Black to create long, lush lashes.
STEP 5: To subtly complement Lea’s hot pink dress, she first applied a coat of L’Oréal Paris Colour Caresse by Colour Riche Luminous Lipcolour in Sheer Linen and then layered L’Oréal Paris Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain by Colour Riche in Eternally Nude for a bit of sheen on the nude lip.
Makeup artist Jo Baker was inspired by Naya Rivera’s sexy bombshell gown and retro-style waves by John Frieda stylist Clyde Haygood. Baker’s makeup look for Naya was a modern take on old Hollywood glamour that complemented Naya’s powerful dress with a soft, fresh, and feminine face.
Baker created Naya’s glowing complexion with Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and YoungBlood Mineral Blush in Rouge.
Baker lined the inner rims and lash lines of Naya's eyes with Avon Glimmersticks Eyeliner in Cosmic Brown, and smudged Avon Glimmersticks Diamonds Eyeliner into the outer edges to create a softly winged line. Baker completed the romantic and slightly metallic smoky eye by using a taupey shimmery brown shadow all over Naya’s eyelids, and by coating Naya’s lashes with Avon SuperExtend Mascara in Black.
Baker prepped Naya’s lips with Chanel Rouge Coco Baume to keep them soft and hydrated. In order to make Naya’s lips look super sensuous, like they had just been kissed, Baker lined them with Chanel Lip Liner in #25 Pink Sugar, and applied Avon's NEW Totally Kissable lipstick in Loving Lilac.
Celebrity hairstylist Clyde Haygood gave Naya Rivera a statement-making red carpet look for the SAG Awards: with dramatic and glamorous long waves, Rivera looked like a modern day Veronica Lake.
Clyde applied Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Original Formula ($8.99 at drugstores) to Naya’s wet hair before blow-drying. “We wanted defined waves, and this serum blocks out frizz and gives you sleek results.”
Next, Clyde used a curling iron with a 1 ½ inch barrel to begin curling hair section by section, pinning each curl with a duckbill clip and spraying Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray (5.99 at drugstores) to set.
Once the curls cooled, Clyde sprayed just a few spritzes Frizz-Ease Spiral Style Spray Gel ($5.99) for definition and added shine. “We also used this gel formula to sculpt the hair away from Naya’s face” so her romantic makeup would be more visible when she hit the red carpet.
