January 18, 2012

Now that the Golden Globes are over, many women may be wondering how to achieve some of the hottest looks seen on the red carpet. If this is the case with you dear reader, worry your pretty brain, no more!  Style Pooh-Bahs has tips from  Celebrity Makeup Artist, Sue Devitt on how to accomplish looks seen on Emma Stone, Angelina Jolie and Freida Pinto.

Check out how to get these looks using Sue Devitt’s makeup line!

The Look:  Smoky Metallic Cat Eye 

Celebrity: Emma Stone

Emma Stone’s makeup separated her from the majority of those who mostly wore nude eye makeup with black eyeliner.

Sue Devitt says:

The smoky eye is a trend that keeps reinventing itself as it’s synonymous with a sexy beautiful look sought after, season to season.  This season, the traditional smoky eye gets a makeover with a pop of silver for a more elegant look. 

  If you love the idea of a cat eye but can’t fully commit to such a bold statement, try this new take:

  • Apply a precision tip liner, like the New Sue Devitt Defining Eyeliner across your top lid lash line that ends in a sharp angle out towards your temple, slightly further than usual.  This look still makes a statement but it is subtler than the original thick–winged line.
  • For a more defined effect apply the liner around the rim of the eye, as well.

Want to Get Angelina’s Lip Look?

Sue Devitt recommends:

  • Apply lipstick evenly all over lips with a lip brush (for amazingly long lasting color).
  • Then finish by ‘buffing’ the lips with a Lip Intensifier Pencil, using light feathering strokes around the lip line, blending inwards towards the center.
  • This wow-factor look is classic, dramatic and daring. However, if you’re still unsure about red, practice with a “stain”, instead of a full lip, blot with a tissue or apply with your fingertips.

  • By using the Illuminating Eye Shadow Quad in Icelandic Fjord. Begin by applying the Nordic Nude shade all over the eyelid with the Sue Devitt Eye Base Brush.

  • Sue’s Secret Tip: Hold the brush upside down as you apply as this allows the pigment to get deep into the lash line and build the color upward and outward toward the eyebrow and temple.
  • Next, use the Refined Eye Base Brush to apply the Deep Moss Shimmer shade only to the eyelid to create desired depth.

  • Again, hold the brush upside down and apply this darker color along the lash line, at the base of the lid, and deep into the lashes.  Work the color upwards, grading into the base color as you move upward towards the crease.
  • Finish the look by applying defining Eyeliner in Vik generously along the lash line, and around the rim of the eye for added definition.
