“There were so many beautiful looks on the carpet last night it was very difficult to narrow them down.
I really enjoy seeing glowing skin and an array of lip colors. SKIN IS BACK!!“
Hollywood’s a-listers truly glowed. From classic red lips, to bold brows and highly defined cheekbones, we crowned Jennifer Lopez, Zendaya and Jaimie Alexander as our top beauty picks of the evening with help from our Beauty Expert and Celebrity Make Up Artist client, Latisha Nicole Rankin. Latisha explains below how women at home can achieve these three fabulous looks in simple, easy to apply steps.
Brooklyn-based celebrity makeup artist to Jordin Sparks, Latisha Nicole Rankin has built an impressive celebrity client base which includes singer/actress Jordin Sparks as mentioned above, as well as, Extra’s Tracey Edmonds, Angela Simmons, TV personality Jamie Krell, musician Swiss Beatz and Paula Abdul to name a few.
FOUNDATION: You truly cannot talk about luminous skin and not think of Jennifer Lopez. The soft contour and perfect definition in the face can be achieved using a foundation such as Dior Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation to help to create a flawless skin look.
HIGHLIGHTER: The amazingly placed highlight on her nose and cheeks were radiant. Use a product like MAC Cosmetics Global Glow Mineralize Skinfinish on the cheeks and t-zone area to achieve this glow.
EYES: For this natural look, I would apply the MAC Cosmetics Woodwinked and Amber Lights Eye Shadow topped with Ardrell in Demi Wispies Lashes to achieve Jennifer’s wildly flare lashes.
BROWS: Use a soft brown brow shadow to fill in eyebrows. Perfect, yet subtly defined brows can be achieved using any Anastasia Beverly Hills brow products.
LIPS: Jennifer Lopez’s gorgeous red glossy lip adds the sexy and glamorous final touch to her look. Try using MAC Lip Pencil in Burgundy topped with Lip Lands Luscious Shine Gloss in Venetian for a glossy and bold finish.
FOUNDATION: A cream stick foundation like Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick would help with creating a nice golden warmth to the skin and a natural highlight in all areas of the face, as seen on Zendaya. *Insider MUA Tip: Sometimes using two different foundation shades will help to naturally contour the face; one foundation shade darker from what you wear daily, should do the trick.
HIGHLIGHTER: To create Zendaya’s red carpet flawless skin with bronzed cheeks and the perfect highlight, Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact would be my recommendation. To apply, lightly dust the bronzer powder onto the t-zone area using a damp blush brush. Next, apply Bobbi Brown Brightening Blush on the cheek along with bronzer.
BROWS: For those beautiful bold brows use a wax pencil to tame the brow hairs, followed by the Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade to nicely define the shape of your eyebrows.
EYES: The goal here is to create crystallized eyes with perfectly flared lashes, topped with black gel liner. My go-to product for this would be the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Sparkle Eye Shadow in Smokey Topaz and Dior 5 Color Eye Shadow Palette in Amber Nuit with a gel or liquid liner adding a lash of choice. My favorite lash is the Ardrell in Demi Wispies.
LIPS: To achieve that great brown lip with a light peachy lipstick in the center, try a velvet lip liner such as the NARS Medano Beach paired with the NARS Blonde Venus Satin Finish Lipstick.
FOUNDATION: Choose a foundation that will create a silky smooth finish like Giorgio Armani Luminous Skin, to achieve Jaimie Alexander’s soft look.
CHEEKS: The key to creating the perfect flush color is adding just a hint of blush. Use a cream blush to recreate that natural flush color (aim for the natural color you would have if you were jogging).
BROWS: I suggest the IT Cosmetics Brow Shaper lightly applied for a clean shape, like Jaimie’s.
EYES: For that classic smoky eye, apply the Urban Decay NAKED Smokey Eye Shadow Palette feathering it out with a brush and adding black gel liner with precision. Softly smudge the shadow under the lash line and add a light gel liner on the outer end for boldness.
LIPS: To complete this look, I would leave the natural color of your lip and apply only a tinted lip conditioner such as the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer gloss. This nude lip will help compliment the natural and pearl luminous glow of the skin.
