Recreate the BAFTA beauty looks

09 February 2009

Inspired to try something a bit different with your beauty look by the touch of glamour the BAFTA awards brought to London last night? Well, lucky you. We've spent all day tracking down the hair and make-up gurus to the stars to pick their brains on how they created the key BAFTA looks. Listen and learn below....

Freida Pinto BAFTA

Freida Pinto: The new actress totally aced her beauty look with the help of her make-up artist, Joe Hopker, and hairdresser Nicky Clarke. Joe used products from the Cosmetics A La Carte range, including Skin Tint foundation in Golden Honey custom-blended with Gold to get the perfect dewy complexion. (Freida fell in love with the foundation on the set of Slumdog and has been addicted ever since!). To complement her radiant skin and Oscar de la Renta dress, Nicky created a classic down 'do. 'Freida loves her hair down but I wanted her to be able to show off her gorgeous earrings,' says Nicky. 'We went for a side-parting and kept the emphasis on being sleek and shiny with a lovely glossy wave. Classic old-school Hollywood with a young, sexy feel to it.'

Amy Adams BAFTA

Amy Adams: According to Chanel make-up artist, Kay Montano, who created Amy's look, it was all about the lashes and the nude lips. Kay used Chanel Vitalumiere in Limpide 10 followed by Poudre Universelle Compacte in Beige to get Amy's glow, then went for a brown smoky eye with Mystic Eyes shadow. Topped off with a heavy sweep of liner on the upper lid, individual layers of false lashes and Exceptionnel Mascara in black, Amy's eyes created the focus of her look while Kay kept her lips nude with Positano Creme Lipstick.

Marissa Tomei BAFTA

Marisa Tomei: 'I ringleted Marisa's hair section by section with 13mm curling irons, then pinned it into a near pleat at the back,' says A-list hair guru, Tara Smith. 'The look was inspired by a classic 1920s/1930s style but I then used my hands to fuzz up the back section and give it a modern edge.' The style was finished off with some Tara Smith Top Coat Glosser to give it that real red carpet shine. We like!
