SAG Awards Beauty Breakdown: Lips & Tips

Jan/28/2013 at 12:30 PM ET

The real winners at the SAG Awards? Celeb makeup artists, who apparently found their star clients willing to go bold with their beauty looks on Sunday night. We spotted lipstick in a range of shades from neutral to very vampy; when it came to manis, stars sported everything from classic ballet-pink tips to Pinterest-approved nail art. Here are the 12 ladies whose looks we plan to copy soon — plus the exact lip and polish color they picked.

Anne Hathaway: Makeup artist Kate Lee tells PEOPLE that the deep rose color she used on the best supporting actress winner (Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour in Taffeta Rose, to be specific) was essentially a more intense version of the star’s pout’s natural color. And while her makeup was subdued, Tom Bachik went funkier with her nails, using two coats of L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail in I Will! to serve as the base for the butterfly accents on her middle and ring fingers.

The Lipstick Report: Golden Globes Edition

Jan/14/2013 at 01:00 PM ET

Red was the color of the night when it came to gowns, but there was hardly a red lip to be seen on any star at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night. Instead, we spotted a sea of pink, plum, fuchsia and nude pouts; here are the 11 ladies whose lip colors we loved and the exact shade they were wearing.

Amy Adams: To ensure that her delicate blush Marchesa gown didn’t wash her out, Adams’s makeup artist, Stephen Sollitto, went for a richer lip. He applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Plum Orchid underneath the line’s Lip Glacé in Raspberry for a hint of shine. The results? One pretty pink pout.

Hollywood babysitters must’ve been busy tonight, because four famous new moms were living it up — and looking so great — at the Golden Globes.

Wearing a curve-hugging blush Dolce & Gabbana gown, presenter Megan Fox opted for a night off with husband Brian Austin Green, leaving little guy Noah at home.

Adele made her hotly anticipated post-baby debut in a 3/4-length sleeve Burberry dress, finished with simple jewels and a pretty updo. Upon winning an award for her song, “Skyfall,” she admitted she’d come to the Globes not expecting to win, but to enjoy a night out without her baby boy.

Whose Makeup Made a Statement at the Emmys?

We didn’t see many smoky eyes or bold red lips at Sunday night’s Emmy Awards, but makeup artist Jo Strettell says that’s a good thing. The beauty pro, who did Girls star Lena Dunham’s Emmys makeup, thinks stars went a bit subtler Sunday.

“In general, the look was much cleaner and fresher,” Strettell tells PEOPLE. “Claire Danes had a stronger eye with a soft, stained mouth; Ginnifer Goodwin had a really strong eye with lashes, so there was a lot of that [eye makeup] going on. But in general it was more natural, which is really pretty.”

Strettell appreciates how stars either went for a “striking mouth” or a bold eye — but not both. “Go for the eye or go for the lip,” she advises.

Claire Danes Calls Herself a 'Sales Slut'

In the latest issue of Asos magazine, Claire Danes rattles off the list of her high-fashion friends. There’s Narciso Rodriguez, who designed her wedding gown; Burberry’s Christopher Bailey, who designed her husband Hugh Dancy’s wedding suit; plus Miuccia Prada and the one and only Valentino.

But despite those haute hangers-on, Danes says she’s all about value shopping. “I’m a sales slut,” she admits. “I’m just very seduced by a sale. I go through phases where sometimes I’m a fiend and then there are dry spells that can last for months.”

Singling out stores like Legacy, Opening Ceremony and Prada as her favorites, the Homeland star says her wardrobe “is a mix of vintage and contemporary stuff.” And a lot of jeans. “[But] it’s so funny with jeans now, because if they don’t feel like a pair of sweatpants, I don’t have patience for them any more! I think I’m becoming increasingly lazy.”

Will Anne Hathaway wear a Valentino gown on her wedding day? The young star of The Devil Wears Prada is notoriously close with designer Valentino Garavani, so while she called in sick to the opening-night party of his Virtual Museum in New York on Wednesday night, that didn’t stop other guests from speculating on what she might wear when she weds fiancé Adam Shulman.

Stylist Rachel Zoe, who’s worked with Hathaway for nearly seven years, indicated that choosing a wedding dress designer might be difficult for the actress. “But it should be interesting,” she continued. “She’s so young and such a romantic. It will be a fashion ‘moment’ whatever she decides.”

Claire Danes: Am I a Natural Blonde?

Claire Danes' SImplified Beauty Routine

She rocked red hair in My So Called Life and some brown-tinged curls in Temple Grandin, but Claire Danes admits she has no idea what her real hair color is. “I’ve been coloring it since I was 13,” she tells Stylelist. “I look at my brother and say, ‘Oh, that’s what I would look like.’ I identify my current blonde as my ‘base color,’ so I return to it when I literally have to wash a character out of my hair.” For such transitions, she leaves her locks in the hands of colorist Steven Amendola at New York’s John Frieda Salon. “I’m pretty passive about this stuff, so I trust him. If he decides to go lighter because it’s spring, I just say, ‘uh huh.’” When it comes to her beauty routine, Danes cuts corners by using the lash growth drug Latisse, which she recently became a spokesperson for. “My makeup artist, Matin, sometimes even has to trim them a bit,” she says of her lengthy lashes. “I still use mascara on the red carpet, but I never wear fake eyelashes anymore, which I used to do pretty often. It helps cut down on that whole process of being made up.” For more on Danes’ beauty tips — and thoughts on plastic surgery — visit –Kim Peiffer
