Have you ever tried to recreate a makeup look that you saw in a movie? Well, don’t feel bad this is my first time trying to recreate a makeup look from a movie. Since the SAG Awards is right around the corner a couple of my blogger buddies and I thought it would be fun to take part in a SAG Awards 2017 Nominee’s Beauty Challenge, where we will recreate a beauty look from the nominee’s list. I couldn’t pass up the chance to create a makeup look from the nominees for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture – “Hidden Figures.” I had so much fun recreating this makeup look, it was super easy, and I’m pretty impressed with my winged liner.
I tried my best to focus on Taraji’s look from Hidden Figures. Her character Katherine always stood out in a room full of men and if you ask me it wasn’t just because of her smarts and but also her bold lip colors. You guys know I’m all about my bold lipsticks. If you watched this movie, you would notice that the wardrobe is very 60’s and contemporary, the makeup is very natural except for the blood lips.
I used my favorite eye palette from Smashbox- Ablaze Cover Shot Eye Palette (it’s becoming my beauty staple). I played with the last two colors in this palette “Throwback” and “Dark Horse” just to give my eyes some definition but still kept everything natural. When creating this look, my main focus was perfecting my winged liner, I think I did a great job.
Lastly, to pull my look together I grabbed a wig from my wig stash and tried to get it to mimic Katherine’s hairstyle from the movie. All I needed was some curls, hair pins and hairspray.
So how did I do? Will you be tuning into the 2017 SAG Awards? Let me know what movie/actors or actresses you’re rooting for!! I can’t wait to see the Red Carpet beauty looks (makeup and hair) from the SAG Awards this year.
