Claire Danes was by far one of my favorites at the 2013 SAG Awards held last night. Not only was she stunning in her Black Givenchy, but her deep red lips and copper eyes perfectly complimented the dark ensemble. Read below to find out exactly how to re-create her makeup look from the master who did it himself…
Look by: Matin Maulawizada, Global Artistry Director for Laura Mercier
Matin Maulawizada, Global Artistry Director for Laura Mercier, created a bold, fashion-forward look to complement Claire Danes’ dramatic black Givenchy dress (hand tailored by Givenchy’s creative director Riccardo Tisci by the way).
- While she was getting her hair done, Maulawizada applied Laura Mercier Lip Silk ($22) to Danes’ lips to smooth and nourish them.
- Once her hair was complete, he contoured and shaded the lips using Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Coffee Bean ($20) followed by Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Deep Wine ($20).
- First, Maulawizada prepped Danes’ skin using Laura Mercier Foundation Primer ($32) to create an even canvas and ensure her makeup stayed flawless throughout the evening.
- Then, he applied Laura Mercier Repair Eye Serum ($80) generously over her cheekbones.
- Next, Maulawizada applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Foundation in Warm Ivory ($50) to lighten Danes’ complexion.
- On her cheeks, he applied Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Blaze ($24) followed by Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder in Translucent ($35) to set the look.
- Maulawizada defined Danes’ eyes by applying Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Bleu Marine ($22) to her lash line.
- Then, he layered a combination of Laura Mercier Metallic Crème Eye Colour in Rose Gold ($22) and Laura Mercier Metallic Crème Eye Colour in Burnished Copper ($22) on her eyelids.
- Next, he applied Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Golden Mosaic ($38) to further enhance the eyes.
- Maulawizada added the final touch of glamour by applying multiple coats of Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara ($24) to Danes’ upper lashes.
As for her beautiful black gown, you can look for a simple one shouldered long black dress with a high slit. From here the rest is easy. If it doesn’t have a slit you can always get crafty and make your own (or take it to a seamstress), while also sewing on a black and white pattern to match. It will barely cost you and you can re-create a look that is just as pleasing to the eye. Be sure to match it with a loose bun and a black accessory ring to create the full effect. For me, Claire stole the show with the drama of simplicity!
