In a sea of standard smoky eye/nude lip combinations at the Teen Choice Awards last night, two women stood out from the rest. First, Lea Michele walked the red carpet wearing shimmery green eye makeup. Then, later in the evening, Leighton Meester appeared at the show wearing this blue shade to accentuate her upper lash line. Get tips on how to re-create the look at home, straight from CoverGirl Makeup Artist Molly R. Stern, when you read more.
Looking for a fresh makeup palette? Take a cue from Rashida Jones, then, who wore this unexpected purple and green smoky eye makeup combo to the 2010 MTV Movie Awards afterparty last night. Using CoverGirl products, makeup artist Molly R. Stern created the fresh-faced look. "Rashida's dress was simple and black," she said. "So we wanted to play up her makeup with a bit of color."
To re-create this colorfully smoky eye, use Smoky ShadowBlast in Citrus Flair ($8) on the lids. Next, add definition with Exact Eyelights Eye Shadow ($8) palette for brown eyes. Stern then lined Rashida's eyes with the new LiquiLine Blast in Violet Voltage and then applied LiquiLine Blast in Green Glow in the inner corners for an extra glow. Finish it all off with a sweep of Outlast Lipstain in Flirty Nude ($8) on the lips, followed by ShineBlast Lip Gloss in Smoulder ($8.50) for shine.
I expect we'll be seeing lots of red-carpet looks from Amy Adams, as her latest flick, Julie and Julia will be released in theaters next Friday. At last night's NYC premiere, Amy amped up the volume with some bouncy waves and a warm, glowing face. "We went for a steel and copper smokey lid, gorgeous full lashes, a peachy cheek, and a golden amber lip," said CoverGirl celebrity makeup artist Molly R. Stern, who created the look.
"Last night Amy wore a gorgeous full-length Carolina Herrera gown with a charcoal and white pattern speckled with gold beading. So I borrowed from that exquisite color palette," Stern said. Are you looking for tips on how to re-create this peachy palette? Find out how to get Amy's universally flattering look after the jump.
Red lips are having a moment right now, but a classic red lip never really goes out of style. I used to be intimidated by wearing them, but now they're in regular rotation—and they're especially festive for this time of year.
