So girls, shoe wobbles (Meryl), embarrassing photo op moments (Brad) and a highly charged Grammys aside, here are a handful of beauty secrets sported by the stars at last night’s BAFTA’s.
Tilda Swinton, Christina Hendricks and Joanne Froggatt (and that’s just the start of it): Lancôme. The company celebrates 12 years of BAFTA sponsorship – a fabulous association that makes sense. The Lancôme woman always has a story to tell and BAFTA is the ideal showcase. Here are a few highlights used on the actors by Lancôme make-up artists on the night, that you might like to try:
- Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey – bumped into her in the loo at Matilda the other day, she’s a honey) – Lips: Rouge In Love in The Rose 200B – great, natural pinkish nude.
- Tilda Swinton – Looked peachier than usual – glorious (photo doesn’t relay just how) – thanks to Blush Subtile in both Rose Sable and Shimmer Peach Fever. Blend just under cheekbones and out, for most modern, glamorous look.
- Naomie Harris – Tools for her smoky eyes: Les Oeillades (eye shadows) in Blondette Fatale, Le Crayon Khol and Hypônse Doll Eyes Mascara.
- Christina Hendricks – The foundation for a porcelain complexioned red head: Teint Miracle Foundation in a mix of shades 02 and 01, with Effet Miracle Primer underneath.
Jessica Brown-Findlay, Emilia Fox, Dawn Porter, Holliday Grainger – Charles Worthington Limited Edition Volume Big Bounce Spray. He’s the BAFTA’s official hairdresser and this was his secret weapon for giving oomph and root lift to their hair. Mine too (though not that night), I have been using it for the past few weeks and can vouch that it’s a great, volumising blow dry spray.
