OITNB star Taylor Schilling and Uzo Aduba (‘Crazy Eyes” ) handed out the American Music Award for Best Pop/Rock Male to the soulful British singer Sam Smith.
While we weren’t a fan of the hair style (what was that?) her natural make-up won us over.
We quizzed her makeup
interrogated quizzed her makeup stylist, Georgie Eisdell.
“Taylor’s look tonight was very much about her skin and enhancing her natural beauty,” he told us. Simple and chic.”
Since prepping the skin is key to a great look, Gerorgie let us in on his secrets:
“I first prepared Taylor’s skin with Kiehl’s Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate, and then moisturized with Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration and Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado for her eyes. Then I finished with Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector, my favorite thing to have on the skin before foundation.”
“I then evened out her skin with Kiehl’s Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream in Fair/ Light.”
“I used Dior’s SkinFlash to brighten the eye, and then used Chanel Cream Blush in Revelation for a beautiful sheen on the cheek and then a touch of Chanel Illuminating Powder over the top for an extra burst of sheen.”
To make sure she didn’t shine more than the awards she was holding:
“I powdered really lightly, just on the high points of her face with La Mer’s The Powder.”
“I enhanced Taylor’s already amazing brows with Laura Mercier Brow Definer in Soft. On Taylor’s eyes, I left the lids bare of eye shadow. I just put a wash of translucent powder to even out the area, then used Tom Ford Eye Defining Pen in Deeper along the lash line very finely and slightly extended for the cat eye effect.”
“I finished the eye with Kevin Aucoin’s Essential Mascara in Rich Black, and a then a few Stilazzi individual lashes to create a fluffy fullness to her natural lashes.”
“I finished off her look with Kiehls Lip Balm #1 to hydrate the lips, then Jouer Lip Shine in Ibiza.”
