January Jones wears dramatic neutrals, Diane Kruger works an understated cat eye, and Mandy Moore is pretty in (grown-up) pink.
January Jones at the FOX Summer TCA Press Tour: Neutrals don't have to be bland, as proven by January Jones. To recreate her glamorous neutral look, start with a glow-inducing primer and then use a full coverage foundation with mica to help enhance an all-over glow. Warm up the complexion with a coral blush blended into the hollows of the cheeks and give your brows precise definition with an eyebrow pencil and setting wax. Begin creating the moody brown eye by lining the eyes with a brown eyeliner and smudging it out the outer corners of the eyes. Use coordinating medium and dark brown eyeshadows to create depth to the upper lids and smudge a tan shade under the lower lashline. Apply a half strip of faux lashes from the middle of the eye to the outer corners, and then apply several coats of mascara. A terra cotta lip in a matte finish offers the perfect understated drama. Finish off with highlighter down the center features of the face and in the inner corners of the eyes.
Diane Kruger at a screening of Disorder: Diane Kruger's look is perfect for any low-key wedding, and is anchored by a simplistic cat eye. To achieve the look, start by evening out the complexion with a BB Cream or light coverage liquid foundation and apply a sheer pink blush to the apples of the cheeks. Shape and define the brows with a pencil, making sure they retain a natural look. Then line the eyes with a brown pencil and retrace the line from the center of the eye to the outer corner making it slightly thicker and create a slight flick at the outer corners. Use a matte, taupe-colored eyeshadow from the upper lashes to the crease and apply several coats of mascara. The final touch is a glossy, candy pink lip.
Mandy Moore at The Hollywood Foreign Press Association Annual Grants Banquet: If you love a radiant and feminine look but don't want to err too much on the sweet side, take a page out of Mandy Moore's red carpet playbook. To emulate her makeup, start with a light coverage foundation just to even out your skin. Apply a bright pink blush to the cheeks, followed by highlighter just on the apples. Use a shimmery, rose gold colored eyeshadow on the upper lids and below the lower lashes, and then use a matte brown in the crease for added depth. Apply several coats of lengthening mascara to get the most out of your lashes. Next, brush the brows up and out to help them retain a natural look, and fill in any sparse places. For the lips, use a pink shade similar to the blush, and apply it without any liner, to keep the look relaxed.
