The 2015 SAG Awards Red Carpet Boasts A New Beauty Trend: Matchy Matchy Eyeshadow
While Lupita Nyong'o was noticeably absent from the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet (such a sad day) it seems her legacy from last year's show lives on. Remember when she stunned in a body-hugging, flower embellished, turquoise Gucci that appeared to have been sent down from the fashion heavens just for her? Of course you do. We all do. The only thing that created a bigger buzz than the dress itself was Nyong'o's accompanying beauty look — her bright blue eyelids were expertly matched to her pop color dress and it seems to be a look that was burned into brains of many a celebrity makeup artist. And you know what? The women of the 2015 red carpet reaped the benefits of the unforgettable moment, sporting on-trend make up applications as a result.
While there were plenty of jaw-dropping designer duds to ogle over during this evening's SAG awards pre-show, the beauty game was especially strong: Some of our favorite leading ladies were spotted forgoing their traditionally classic, fresh-faced, red-lipped looks for a trendier makeover. While there weren’t necessarily any bold, breathtaking colors on the carpet this year, there were plenty of fabulous frocks that easily inspired colored lids. Taking a page out of Nyong'o's book, standout stars from Game of Thrones Natalie Dormer to Still Alice's Julianne Moore went matchy-matchy, coordinating their eyeshadow with their gown. As Oprah would say, “Lupita! Lupita! Lupita!” You’re epic entrance into our lives has been immortalized. Shall we take one more look back in honor of this year’s beauty muse?
Gorgeous doesn't do this girl justice. Now, let's look to the present for the widespread red carpet trend that I hope we continue to see.
The GoT actress chose girly glamour over punk side shave, matching her fresh, floral tie-dye Naeem Khan dress with a perfectly peachy pink eyeshadow.
The beautiful mother to be and star of The Imitation Game donned Erdem in deep violet, a shade that suited her eyelids as well, contrasting wonderfully with her pregnancy glow.
Funny girl Amy Poehler was a night sky-like vision in dark, sparkly navy with a sultry smokey eye that appeared to forgo traditional grey and black in light of a deep blue match back.
Did Amy Poehler and Chelsea Peretti have a funny female powerhouse pact to rock blue on their bodies and on their eyelids this evening? The mere thought of that is amazing. Whatever the reasoning, Peretti's peepers were noticeably blue and just as beautiful as her dress.
In an amazingly gorgeous turn of events, neither Jennifer Aniston's dress or eyeshadow were black at the 2015 SAG awards. Her Greek goddess golden-green eyeshadow was stunning in conjunction with her olive colored vintage Galliano.
Emmy Rossum was picture perfect in Armani Prive with an exceptionally modern smokey eye in the exact same shade as her shimmery grey gown. Seriously, is there someone in Hollywood that can color match eyeshadow to fabric and we just don't know about it yet?
If I was Julianne Moore I would only wear emerald green. The only thing better than the actress' Givenchy Couture against her alabaster skin and ever-envied red hair was the swipe of light purple eyeshadow on her lids that matched her OMGorgeous Chopard earrings.
All of these ladies and more dazzled with matchy-matchy beauty looks and personally, I am dying over this possible new trend. Will 2015 be the year we all match our eyelids to our apparel? Be right back: Must got organize my closet by color just in case. Thanks, Lupita, for showing us your magical ways.
