Last night’s SAG Awards were flush with standout makeup moments, but if you ask us, no one looked more glamorous than “Glee” star Amber Riley. Those fuchsia lips were everything! We were so inspired, we went straight to the source — celeb makeup artist Mylah Morales — to find out how she created Riley’s hotter-than-hot look.
- First, Morales prepped Riley’s skin with Black Up Mattifying Base primer ($42, blackupcosmetics.com) to ensure that her makeup lasted all evening.
- She perfected Riley’s complexion with COVERGIRL Queen Collection Compact Foundation ($9.50, drugstore.com), and built up a natural-looking flush with a blend of coral blush and COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Bronzer ($8.30, drugstore.com).
- To keep Riley’s eyes low-key but defined, Morales shaded eyes with a neutral shadow palette, and then applied COVERGIRL LiquiLineBlast in Black Fire ($10, target.com) and LashBlast Volume Mascara ($6.50, walmart.com).
- That wildly sexy, hot pink lip called for a bold lipstick with staying power. Morales chose COVERGIRL Lip Perfection in Embrace ($5.99, amazon.com), which Riley brought with her to the awards!
