BAFTAs 2014: Beauty Roundup

Taking place on the same night as the Billboard Music Awards were the Baftas. This was whole different kind of look to the BBMAs. One is British TV actors, and the other is pop stars. Two very different styles, but some equally beautiful looks. Here are my faves:

Josephine de la Baume


Josephine is a french actress and is also married to Mark Ronson. I admit, I didn’t know who this was and had to look her up. But I’ve included her because I can’t get over how beautiful her hair is. Such a beautiful colour and that Veronica Lake style really suits it. Makeup-wise there’s not much to speak of except she has gorgeous skin, which is complimented well by her foundation and peach blush. 

Naomie Harris


Naomie Harris is already super pengers, so it must be so fun doing her makeup. Her eyebrows are perfectly arched and not too overdrawn, and she looks beautiful with that arabic style eye liner and Kardashian style lashes. It really accentuates her feline shaped eyes. And to top it off just a slight sheen of pink on her lips to match her outfit. Perfection.

Lupita Nyong’o


Lupita is always on my beauty lists because I love her use of colour in her makeup. Her MUA has gone for a teal green on the eyes to match the bright green of her dress with a reddish/brown lip. Even though this is a lot of bright colours, it doesn’t look like too much. Somehow it all works and still looks minimal and elegant.

Lea Seydoux



Blue is the Warmest Colour‘s Lea Seydoux is another who’s chosen to wear Veronica Lake waves and side parting to compliment the red in her hair. If this is her natural hair colour, I am so jealous, if this is the work of her hair stylist, I need his/her details. And the makeup is gorgeous. A sweep of blue to match her dress with barely there eyebrows and nude lips, so all the attention goes to her eyes. It was a well made decision. 

Cate Blanchett



Oscar winner, Cate, is showing off her flawless alabaster skin here by utilising a loosely swept back updo. Both skin and hair look great. The rest of her makeup (mascara, eyebrows, shade of lipstick) is not my fave but I hardly notice as I’m too busy staring at that complexion. 

And finally, I had to include the big winner of the night and my favourite actress, Olivia Colman



She is just glowing and her happiness radiates. Which is really the best makeup. Also those killer falsies with the 1940s hair and lipstick aren’t bad either. 

Overall there was lots of 1940s hair and lots of gorgeous skin. But the makeup was more understated that the BBMAs and slightly less glam, which suited the event. I still enjoyed this different type hair and makeup, but reviewing a music event is a lot more fun.
