A sexy, smoky eye is a standard for a night as momentous as New Year’s Eve, and the deep navy twist January Jones added to hers is a fun way to give dark shadows a pop of color. “I wanted her whole look to have a dramatic high fashion feel to it, not passive, but of real intentional glamour,” says her makeup artist, Rachel Goodwin. “I created a powerful indigo smoky eye paired with soft berry-stained lips.”
Although it looks striking, Jones’s look is simple to recreate. Goodwin used Chanel’s Illusion D’Ombre Eye Shadow in Apparition ($36), a rich Oxford blue. “I applied the shadow on top, blending it softly into the lash line and crease, then extended it out toward the hairline in a dramatic sweep,” she said. A black liner was added to define Jones’s top and bottom lashes, then smudge, with a soft tapered brush.
There’s something to be said about a perfect, lit-from-within glow. We loved the soft pink color Julianne Moore wore at the 2012 Emmy awards, which looked natural, but still stood out against her bright lip. When pairing your blush with a bold lipstick, keep the two shades within the same color family to keep the continuity.
Moore’s makeup artist swept Dior’s Diorblush in Strawberry Sorbet ($42) across the apples of the star’s cheeks. The two shades can be swirled together for a custom blend, or worn individually.
A nude lip allows more freedom when it comes to your makeup. It balances the look of a heavy eye, and still makes for an elegant statement if you opt for minimal shadow. “Inspired by her Calvin Klein dress, I created a look that was feminine and romantic, anchored with a tiny bit of edginess with black liner,” said makeup artist Amy Nadine, who createdAmanda Peet’s look. Want to find your perfect nude hue? Take a look at the color on your inner lip, and then find a lipstick no more than two shades lighter or darker.
“I finished the look with Tom Ford’s Blush Nude Lipstick ($48), a super-light neutral, followed by Revlon’s Just Bitten Balm Stain in Charm ($9;drugstore.com) lightly on top,” Nadine said. Because the lipstick Peet wore was so pale, a thin layer of Revlon’s peach lip stain prevented her pout from blending in with the rest of her face.

Sometimes a slight change in your beauty routine makes all the difference. While many opt to smooth on foundation before applying concealer, the trick to achieving Kim Kardashian’s illuminated skin is to reverse the formula. We love how her complexion has no hint of dark undereye circles, but the concealed area doesn’t jump out at you. Be sure to choose a concealer that is half a shade lighter than your natural skin tone, as anything too fair will look chalky. Dab the product right under your eyes and blend downward in a v-formation that lines up with the sides of your nose. You can also swipe a touch of the concealer along the bridge of your nose to give it a more contoured appearance. Then, fill in the rest of your face with a tinted moisturizer or lightweight foundation to blend any harsh edges and even out the rest of your skin.
Ok, beauties…go on and radiate your glow!
Sometimes, a dramatic sweep of liner is a statement-making look in itself. Drawing on a precise line can be intimidating, but thanks to the new pen-shaped liquid liners, the effect is easier to create. The user-friendly stylus makes the inky formula easier to control, while the felt-tipped applicator helps bring your liner to a point. To avoid uneven wings, try tilting your head upward and looking down into your mirror while applying. That way, you can place the liner close to your lashes while still being able to see. If the applicator is holding too much liquid liner, be sure to wipe off the excess onto your hand to avoid drawing it on too thick. Even if you want a more dramatic effect, it’s always easier to build up the line afterward than to correct one drawn on with a heavy hand.
