New Girl star Zooey Deschanel, nominated in the Lead Comedy Actress category, can be counted on to wow on the red carpet. “She’s a risk-taker who follows her instincts,” says makeup artist Jorjee Douglass, who created a beautiful makeup look to offset her striking blue Reem Acra dress, and her glossy raven locks. Read on to get her makeup, hair and manicure info!
Jorjee began by priming the skin with Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, and followed with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory. Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer was utilized in two different shades – Fair and Pearl. She finished the skin with Hourglass Oxygen Mineral Powder in #1.
She then applied Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain in Flush, topped with Dior’s Rosy Glow in 001 petal.
For the eyes, Jorjee started with the light shimmer shade of Hourglass Vol. 6 Eye Palette across the whole lid, then contoured the crease of the eye with the brown and black colors; and finally, blended the whole lid with the pink. She then shimmered the entire lid with Beauty is Life Everest and framed the eyes using Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner in Ebony and Hourglass Script Precision Liquid Liner. Jorjee lined the top in a cat shape bringing it out past the lid and the lashes. Lining under the eyes, she went from the middle of the eye and straight out –making it a princess version of Cleopatra’s eye. She finished the eyes with false lashes and Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer.
Jorjee completed the look with Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Ballet.
For her hair, Stylist Mara Roszak used Zooey’s dress as inspiration for the elegant, Old Hollywood updo she created. “We both decided her hair should be up and off the neck,” Roszack said, “keeping the hair soft, feminine and elegant.
Mara started by applying the Pantene Normal to Thick Flowing Body Mousse to Zooey’s damp hair. She then blew out Zooey’s hair with a boar bristle brush and set it in rollers for extra volume. To begin the styling process, Mara sprayed Pantene Fine Hair Style Touchable Volume Hairspray all over to help set the hair. Mara removed the rollers, and then gently brushed the hair out.
For visual interest, Mara used a fine tooth comb to create a 60’s inspired bump at the crown of Zooey’s head. The style went full-on glam when Mara pulled the hair back into a mid-height ponytail and pinned the ends under, creating a tucked chignon. To finish off the look Mara sprayed Pantene Normal to Thick Anti Humidity Hairspray all over for extra hold throughout the night.
Zooey is a huge nail art fan, so for this event she and L’Oreal Paris Consulting Expert Tom Bachick wanted to keep the look soft and fresh but sparkly, so they went with a soft summer tone personalized with glitter, Swarovski crystals and hand painted TV’s on featured fingers. It was such a whimsical, unexpected touch…I loved it!
-First, I used a thin coat of a yellow (try L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Nail in Tweet Me), topped with a coat of a peachy pink shade (L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Nail in Sweet Nothings) to soften the tone.
-Using a chunky silver metallic (L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Nail Diamond Collection in Sparklicious) , I chose random areas on the nails and faded the glitter out.
-Then, I applied Swarovski crystals in the glitter areas to create a peach “galaxy.”
-Last, I hand-painted deco televisions on the thumbs for fun!
Her mani definitely looked adorable in the Mani-Cam! Overall, I thought Zooey hit a personal best last night, with the total look coming together. She looked fabulous, don’t you think?
