Honey, do I LOVE a good awards show. I have been watching them since I was a child. My mom loves them, too. Listening to her opinions on everyone's outfits, the winners, and the speeches was a highlight to my life during award season every year.
And now it's my turn to do the same! Hollywood was on a mission with the #TimesUp movement and the decision to wear all back, and if you know me then you know I love a good theme party, and I was HERE FOR THIS message, this statement, and these lewks!
Here are some of the top lewks of the night in my humble opinion.
I am into this platinum on her, as well as this feathered brow and the PANK lip. I am honestly thinking she has never looked chicer!
Talk about keeping your FRINGE FRESH. Halle is FRESH EVERYTHING. Her life motto must be "Keep your whole life fresh." I need someone to steal her makeup bag and tell me what mauvey nude lip she is rocking, as well as her skincare regimen. She looks so fresh and youthful and glowy!
Out of all the red lips rocked on the carpet last night, Hong's is easily a fave for me. A cool toned deeper red paired with the perfectly easy yet glam lash and a bright, shimmery lid? Honey, you are perfect! I also love the mid-part hair!
Am I obsessed with This is Us? Yes. Is Chrissy on my dream list of guests for Natch Beaut this year? YES. Her makeup always looks so gorgeous. The auburn brows with the brick colored lip are calling to me. We have very similar coloring and I want to steal this whole look. Maybe a fourth child will be a surprise plot twist next season and I will be cast as her sister! Putting that out into the world. Universe, your move!
Did everyone see my mom last night? she looked SO GORG. I wish I had inherited her perfectly-arched brows. Oh wait, I did, but I plucked them too much in 2002 and they are ruined!
I am HERE for a redhead in a purple lip! Emma's makeup artist Rachel Goodwin used a color palette inspired by the women’s suffrage movement including purple, white, and green. Use this as inspiration to rock a face beat inspired by what you're passionate about! My next look will be "Taco Bell Fierce."
THE QUEENS' COURT
When I saw Issa with her confidant leg-pop, I audibly gasped with delight and awe. She shut it down. She is head-to-toe perfection! Smokey eye? YES. Dewey highlight? YEEEESSSSSSS. And her lip is literally the perfect nude on her. I wonder if she did the nipple test? My life goal is to find out what shade that is!
I'm DEAD. Jessica is my wife/best friend/literal embodiment of my life goals. She is a vegan Queen with a 3 legged rescue dog and she slays every role she plays! Plus her Ariel hair is my dream shade. The best red lip of the NIGHT goes to Ms. Chastain. Thank you for choking me and taking my air away, it was an honor.
Tracee Ellis Ross
Just when I was regaining my breath from Jessica Chastain's red lip, Ms. Ross took it AWAY. DAMN. HELLO, QUEEN WITH THE PEARL EARRING! Someone do an oil painting of this lewk and I will hang it above my fireplace and meditate under it every day. This is pure beauty, elegance, grace, and power in one woman! Confidence is something you cannot get in a jar, honey, and it's the first thing we should all put on when getting ready!
And the ultimate Queen of the night.... everyone bow down and get ready...
Her hair was so big, the angels could comb it for her- and they DID, cause she looks downright heavenly, honey. I am here for this LEWK FOREVER AND EVER AMEN. I love her glam lashes, her inner corner pink metallic highlight, her ever-so-slightly-rosed cheeks and that perfect, simple and chic glossed lip. Viola takes my award for the Queen of the night.
What were your favorite lewks of the night? Who did I leave off? If I'm being honest, I was kind of into everything I saw this year and I hope you agree! I am still catching my breath from all the intense feelings I have. If you'll excuse me, I must go attach myself to an oxygen tank.
