If there was one person who stood out from the crowd on the SAG Awards red carpet last week it was Mad Men star Christina Hendricks. The flame-haired beauty's makeup perfectly complemented her porcelain complexion – and now, makeup artist to the stars Alice Theobald is on hand to help you recreate this red carpet-ready look...
"For this week's how-to guide I've picked some brands like Girls Aloud star Nicola Roberts' Dainty Doll, that are especially for paler complexions like Christina's," says Alice.
"If you have a similar colouring to Christina, always make sure you have a high SPF base underneath your foundation to protect your skin at all times," she advises. "MAC do a good one - Prep + Prime Face protect SPF 50. Once that's on, apply Chanel Pro Lumière – a fantastic even-toning semi-matte foundation."
It's tricky for girls with paler skin to stop their makeup looking like a mask. To prevent the foundation from looking flat, Alice recommends highlighting the cheekbones with High Beam by Benefit. "Next up, to stop any shine, dust a loose powder across the face," she suggests.
"Now let's concentrate on the eyebrows. Define them very lightly using feathery strokes – they're not a main feature of this look so don't go to heavily, particularly with a fair complexion where everything stands out ten times more than it would on darker skin." Alice loves the Benefit Brows a-go-go Brow & Eye Shaping Kit.
"The main emphasis of this look is on the eyes," explains Alice. "After applying your eyeshadow, get a high definition look around the lashline by using Blackout- a single black shimmery eye colour by Dior.
"Also, Christina has highlighted the inner corners of her eyes to really make them pop. Select the lightest silvery-white colour from the Chanel Smoky Eye Quad palette and using a sponge applicator, apply to the corners of your eye."
Use a kohl liner on the bottom inner lids, and line along the top lash line using a gel or liquid liner to help you achieve the flick effect. Then, finish the eyes off with lashings of black mascara.
"For a natural blusher look I love My Girl from the Dainty Doll range," says alice. "Then use a very nude lip liner – try Rosy Beige by YSL - and use Dainty Doll lipstick In His Kiss to fill in the lips. Apply lip gloss to add a gentle sheen to the lips, too."
