Sunday night’s presentation of the Critics’ Choice Awards brought out the ladies in blue. Presenters, nominees, and guests, such as Jennifer Aniston, Saoirse Ronan, Joanne Froggatt, Constance Wu, and January Jones (left) wore various shades of the cool color. But it was Jones who beautifully incorporated the hue into her makeup. Avon Global Celebrity Makeup Artist, Lauren Andersen, took inspiration from the playful elegance of the actress’s embellished Altuzarra gown and helped her get that beautiful look.
According to Anderson, she prepped the skin with La Mer Moisturizing Cream and Honest Everything Cream Foundation. She then applied Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Metal Eyes, lined the eyes with Urban Decay Glide on Eye Pencil in Sabbath, and finished with Avon Big & False Lash Volume Mascara in Blackest Black. Finally, she applied applied Avon True Color Matte Lipstick in Marvelous Mocha, which launches in February.
“A matte lip has never been more on trend,” explains Andersen. “However, sometimes with super-pigmented color that’s shine-free, it flakes or feathers throughout the day. With True Color Perfectly Matte Lipstick, that’s definitely not the case. The formula glides on velvety smooth with long-term comfortable wear—meaning your lips look as good as they feel all day long.”
