Get The Look: Christina Hendricks At The 2011 SAG Awards

Christina Hendricks‘ dramatic makeup look for the 2011 SAG Awards was created by celebrity makeup artist Vanessa Scali. Vanessa was inspired by Brigitte Bardot’s black smoky eyes and nude face. “So, we went in this direction but softened the look for the red carpet by using a creamy, shimmery shadow in gunmetal.  This gives the eye shadow a transparent quality that makes the look very strong but also very modern.

I am always sparing with foundation but especially with Christina’s nearly flawless skin.  I used 
NatureLuxe Silk Foundation in Alabaster, which was perfect for fresh, lightweight coverage.  For a hint of color, I used Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush in Plush Peach on the apples of the cheeks, looking polished
and fresh.

For Christina’s timeless smoky eye, I used Smoky ShadowBlast in Onyx Smoke
on the lid from just above the crease down to the lash line.  I swept out past the natural lash line at the outer corners of the eye to exaggerate the eye size and add a touch of red carpet drama.

Also, to define the lash line, I used LiquiLine Blast Eyeliner in Black Fire.  This pencil defines the eye by leaving intense color at the lash line but is very blendable for a soft look at the edges.  Never leave home without lush and lengthy lashes, I used LashBlast Fusion Mascara in Very
 to create just that.

Strong eyes look great paired with clean, uncomplicated skin.  Keep it fresh
by powdering in the T-zone only, using Clean Pressed Powder, Sensitive Skin
in Ivory.

Finally, to complement the smoky eye, I wanted to use brown undertones, so I
chose Lip Perfection Lipstick in Kiss, perfect for red carpet glam!”
