2009 SAG Awards Beauty Alert: Get America Ferrera’s Look.

This year, America Ferrera dazzled on the SAG Awards red carpet in her beige Vera Wang chiffon gown, which worked perfectly with her fresh and modern looking makeup created by Linda Hay. She decided on a very simple eye, a peachy cheek and a deep red lip. 

I got the scoop on all the products used to create the look and some tips from the makeup artist herself! Linda began creating her look by lightly evening America’s complexion using YSL's Touche Eclat where necessary, around the eyes, the nose and the corners of the mouth, followed by a light dusting of powder. She then applied Shu Uemura’s "Peche" directly to the apple of the cheek for a fresh, youthful look. 

For the eyes, she drew a fine line on the top eyelid with Jouer's eye definer "Mure". Using a large flat eye brush, Linda gently swept a shimmering white shadow from Cle de Peu's #14 Eye Quad, across the entire lid, up and into the brow. With a smaller pointed eye brush she lined the silver shadow from the same palette to the bottom lid and from the inside corner to the outside corner of the eye. The inside of the eye was lined with Jouer's eye clarifier "Clair". Finally, Linda applied three generous coats of Chanel mascara to both top and bottom lashes. The brow was strong and well defined using Anastasia's Brow Kit.  On the Lips, she used Mac's "Viva Glam."

I must say this is my favorite America Ferrera red carpet look so far. Not sure if it was the gown, makeup or hair, but she shined in glamor  and confidence.
