Okay, we know she’s trying, we really do, but Lindsay Lohan needs to get a new MUA ASAP. What’s wrong with this makeup?
-Too dark eye brows that don’t complement her hair color or complexion; the fact that they are not well shaped doesn’t help.
-Two-toned foundation. It’s messily applied and splotchy.
-Unflattering frosty lipstick and eyeshadow.
-Not makeup related, but her hair looks like it needs a good wash too.
If one is going to be in front of many cameras, one should probably put their best foot forward and make sure their makeup photographs well and is flattering. Let one of the Ruby grads help you, Lindsay!
What would you change about her makeup?
Happy Monday once again Ruby girls and boys! I hope you all had a fab weekend. Time for reader input! Tell me what you would do differently if you could change something about Holly’s makeup in the picture above. Can’t wait to see your replies!
Happy Monday! As this blog grows and evolves, I’d love to keep readers involved in the writing and posting process. Every Monday, I’d like to get your input on what’s great and what has to go on a certain celebrity makeup picture.
First on the list: Katrina Bowden. Tell me what you love, hate, don’t understand, and what you would do differently if you’d had the chance to do her makeup for this event.
Cant wait to read your comments!
We all know Catherine Zeta Jones is a gorgeous woman, but even the loveliest of stars is susceptible to the hands of a bad makeup artist. Take this picture, for example. Badly blended eyeshadow, terribly placed shimmery bronzer, clumpy mascara, badly shaped brows, AND a chalky lip color. Now, either CZJ did her makeup in a dark room, or she really said something rude to her MUA before they worked on her.
What’s the worst makeup crime you’ve ever witnessed?
What in the world is going on with Blake’s eyebrows? It looks like she let a six year old have at it with some tweezers in a dark room. The shape toward the center is terrible, kind of resembling a squiggly tadpole, the arch is badly placed, and they’re generally over plucked. Come on, girl! Go to Anastasia in Beverly Hills and let her fix that terrible mess someone else left on your face!
Most people think of smokey eyes as being dark, usually black, dark brown, or navy blue. Sofia Vergara recently rocked smokey eyes in a shimmery copper tone that was very flattering to her skin and didn’t leave her looking overly made up.
For those of you afraid of darker colors, this could be perfect! Wearing a shimmery lighter shadow can provide a sultry effect without overwhelming your eyes or pushing you too far out of your comfort zone. Here are a few shades you can use for lighter smokey eyes:
-Mulch from MAC
-Smog from Urban Decay
-Toasted from Urban Decay
What do you think of Sofia’s look?
It seems that Paz de la Huerta needs to hire a new makeup artist ASAP. The uniquely pretty actress can’t seem to get her makeup quite right for big red carpet events. In both photos, Paz is carrying shiny skin, no eye makeup, and completely unflattering shades of lipstick. She doesn’t necessarily need a lot of makeup, just a better application and color palette.
With a quick swipe of mascara, a tint of warmer color on her lips, and some blotting papers, this girl would work the red carpet like a super model!
What do you think? What would you change on Paz?
Classic red lips never go out of style. Dianna pulled this look off beautifully at this year’s Golden Globes. She nailed it with perfect skin, a light hand on blush, and lightly defined eyes.
What was your favorite look at the Globes this year?
