Claire Danes had one of our favorite looks at last night's SAG Awards--though it wasn't necessarily because of her dress.
Don't get us wrong, we liked the one-shoulder Givenchy gown she wore--but we loved her dark, wine-stained lips even more. As Leah said, they "sealed the deal" on her Best Dressed status, taking her look to the next level.
Our love for Danes's lipstick might have something to do with our love for My So Called Life--that other show Danes won so many awards for. Anyone else getting major Angela Chase vibes? In fact, we did some digging and found that Danes wore a near-identical beauty look to the 1995 MTV Video Music Awards, shortly after My So Called Life wrapped. (Also: Danes apparently doesn't age).
Danes's lipstick, in all its '90s glory, was the perfect finishing touch to her SAG look--and an unexpected (but welcome) variation on the ubiquituous nude or classic red lip. A press release just landed in our inbox detailing how Matin Maulawizada, Global Artistry Director for Laura Mercier, created Danes's beauty look.
The secret to those MYSCL-nostalgia-inducing lips, right this way:
• Step one: Laura Mercier Lip Silk ($22) to smooth and nourish the lips. • Step two: Danes's lips were "contoured and shaded" using Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Coffee Bean ($20) followed by Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Deep Wine ($20).
There you go.
