The Screen Actor Guild Awards is one of the most prestigious events of the year, recognising eminent actors and actresses for their incredible work and giving us beauty enthusiasts a chance to envy their immaculate looks. 2015 hasn’t been around for long but we’re already compiling our list of favourite beauty looks, two of them from the SAG Awards – the elegant and inspiring Lancôme ambassadresses Julia Roberts and Lupita Nyong’o.

Turning heads with her statement Givenchy pantsuit, Julia Roberts perfectly complemented her look with a soft silvery smokey eye and nude lip. The renowned actress and Lancôme ambassador definitely had us with her smouldering yet effortlessly polished beauty look.

With her radiant skin, sometimes we forget that Julia is in her mid-forties! Using the Lancôme Absolue L’Extrait Beautifying Lotion to prep her skin, Julia’s makeup artist Genevieve Herr tops off her base with Lancôme’s Blush Subtil Palette in Nectar Lace to bring out that gentle glow in her cheeks.

Recreating Julia’s smokey eyes could not be any easier with these three main products. A dusting of Midnight Rush from Lancôme’s Color Design 5-Pan Eyshadow Palette all over the eyelid, a stroke of Le Crayon Kohl in Black Ebony and Gris Noir on the lash line, and finally lashings of Lancôme’s Défincils High Definition Mascara in Black to accentuate and open the eyes.

To really let Julia’s eyes own the look, Genevieve used Lancôme’s Color Design Sensational Effects Lipcolor in Haute Nude. The nude lip completes her look, perfectly harmonising with her smouldering eyes and glowing skin.

Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o never ceases to impress us with her beauty looks! Glowing at the 2015 SAG Awards with her luminous skin and bold red lip, this empowering woman is definitely someone to keep ‘beauty trend’ tabs on. Inspired by 40s glam, Lupita Nyong’o’s beauty look is nothing short of modern with an effortless chic edge.

To achieve Lupita’s lustrous skin it is important to have beautiful skin to begin with. Makeup artist Nick Barose prepped the Lancôme ambassadress with the Advanced Skin Corrector from the Lancôme Visionnaire range and used the Teint Idole Ultra 24H Foundation in Suede 540 and Translucence Mattifying Powder in Suede 500 for a flawless canvas. To complete her skin, Blush Subtil in Plum Noir was dusted on the apples of her cheeks for a rosy glow.

Eyebrows are incredibly important as they frame the eyes and for Lupita, Nick used Lancôme’s Le Sourcil Pro Brow Pencil to elongate Lupita’s brows and a Lancôme Highlighter in the colour Brun to accentuate her brows for a statement look.

Opting for a more understated eye, Nick swept colours Fashion Label and Color Du Jour from the Lancôme Color Design Eye Shadow on her eyes and lined her eyes with Le Stylo Waterproof Long Lasting Eye Liner in Golden Riviera. 

And for the finishing touch, Lupita’s lips are painted with the striking Caprice from the Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Lipcolor range, matching the washes of bright red in her Elie Saab gown.
