SAG Awards Makeup: America Ferrera

America Ferrera looked enchanting at last night’s SAG Awards in Los Angeles.

Her makeup was inspired by her beautiful Vera Wang beige chiffon gown, with black trim accented by a giant flower at her hip. Linda Hay wanted her make up to have a fresh and romantic feel, yet very modern to compliment the gentle nature of her dreamy gown. Therefore she 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 the eyes, she drew a fine line on the top eyelid with Jouer’s eye definer “Mure”. Using a large flat eye brush, Linda gently swept a shimmering white shadow from Cle de Peu’s #14 Eye 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’s eye clarifier “Clair”. Finally, Linda applied three generous coats of Chanel mascara to both top and bottom lashes. The brow was strong and well defined using Anastasia’s Brow Kit.

On the Lips, she used Mac Viva Glam.

  • I’m not a huge fan of this look. I don’t like the red lipstick with her skin tone. I personally think she looks better in pinks or nudes. It’s a cute look,just not her best.
