Most of my days are spent makeup-free, yet I still find myself screen-shotting celebrity makeup looks, thinking of when and how to replicate them. Because while buying actual products is obviously the bridge between inspiration and execution, seeing how it looks on someone else helps a lot. And with award season in full swing and Fashion Month drawing to a close, we’ve already got plenty to gawk over, despite being just two months into the New Year.
For instance, the Golden Globe Awards were mostly traditional with a handful of women opting for classic red lipstick. And at the SAG Awards, the underlying theme appeared to be glowy skin without the extra frills. The Grammy Awards were a hodge-podge of shimmery eyelids, bold lips and accessories galore. Plus, New York Fashion Week had us ready to invest in full-blown makeup kits, thanks to a handful of avant-garde moments. The point I’m trying to make is this: choices are never in short supply.
With that being said, here are the makeup looks we’ll be adding to our Pinterest boards for safe keeping. From Cardi B. to Emmy Rossum to Indya Moore, the slayage is real.
Jenner’s eyeliner game makes her look like a young Audrey Hepburn, and it’s totally iconic.
We must give credit where it’s due, and Madonna made red lipstick what it is today. She’s still showing us how it’s done in 2019 by serving her iconic makeup look.
