On Monday night Glamour hosted the 2009 Women of the Year Awards at Carnegie Hall in NYC honoring Rihanna, Maria Shriver, Stella McCartney, Amy Poehler, Serena Williams, and Maya Angelou… just to name a few. I must say, less was more, because the au naturale look really stood out.
Funny lady and honoree, Amy Poehler, was simply radiant with soft rosy cheeks and subtle eye shadow enhancing her blue eyes, but her bright pink lipstick was a clincher. To get the look, I would recommend Stila’s Long Wear Lip Color in Coquette, a pinky- mauve and a great mascara with a brush that separates lashes like Max Factors Lash Perfection Stretch & Separate Mascara in 701 Rich Black.
Currently starring David Mamet’s Race on Broadway, Kerry Washington, decided to keep her makeup at a minimum too. Simple black eyeliner lined the inner rims of her eyes and bright pink blush enhanced her bone structure. I’ve found that Almay’s Blendable Eye Pencil in Black is really easy to apply and lasts all day. To get the bright pink hue on your cheeks try Too Faced OOH LA ROUGE. It incorporates two complimentary shades, one for contour and the other for shimmer. Pink Provocateur is perfect shade of pink that’ll give you a natural blush... kind of like the one I get when I look at Johnny Depp.
