Get the Look: Naya Rivera at the 2013 SAG Awards

Makeup artist Jo Baker was inspired by Naya Rivera’s sexy bombshell gown and retro-style waves by John Frieda stylist Clyde Haygood. Baker’s makeup look for Naya was a modern take on old Hollywood glamour that complemented Naya’s powerful dress with a soft, fresh, and feminine face.

Face

Baker created Naya’s glowing complexion with Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and YoungBlood Mineral Blush in Rouge.

Eyes

Baker lined the inner rims and lash lines of Naya's eyes with Avon Glimmersticks Eyeliner in Cosmic Brown, and smudged Avon Glimmersticks Diamonds Eyeliner into the outer edges to create a softly winged line. Baker completed the romantic and slightly metallic smoky eye by using a taupey shimmery brown shadow all over Naya’s eyelids, and by coating Naya’s lashes with Avon SuperExtend Mascara in Black.

Lips

Baker prepped Naya’s lips with Chanel Rouge Coco Baume to keep them soft and hydrated. In order to make Naya’s lips look super sensuous, like they had just been kissed, Baker lined them with Chanel Lip Liner in #25 Pink Sugar, and applied Avon's NEW Totally Kissable lipstick in Loving Lilac.

Hair

Celebrity hairstylist Clyde Haygood gave Naya Rivera a statement-making red carpet look for the SAG Awards: with dramatic and glamorous long waves, Rivera looked like a modern day Veronica Lake. 

Clyde applied Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Original Formula ($8.99 at drugstores) to Naya’s wet hair before blow-drying. “We wanted defined waves, and this serum blocks out frizz and gives you sleek results.”

Next, Clyde used a curling iron with a 1 ½ inch barrel to begin curling hair section by section, pinning each curl with a duckbill clip and spraying Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray (5.99 at drugstores) to set.

Once the curls cooled, Clyde sprayed just a few spritzes Frizz-Ease Spiral Style Spray Gel ($5.99) for definition and added shine. “We also used this gel formula to sculpt the hair away from Naya’s face” so her romantic makeup would be more visible when she hit the red carpet.
