DIY Tony Awards Red Carpet Looks from Mary Kay! {Review & Giveaway}

3:01 PM

Well, it is that time of year again. Celebrities have been making their way down the red carpet and although I don't watch the awards ceremonies, I know from past experience that they do their very best to look fantastic. I have seen some gorgeous and down right hideous looks on the red carpet and this year, some of the makeup has been lovely! Mary Kay, as always, is doing their very best to make sure every woman can look just like their favorite celebrity and they have rolled out some really great looks that anyone can achieve! These two looks come from the very recent Tony Awards and they are stunning!

The first look that Mary Kay has re-created is that of Scarlett Johansson and here is how they did it...
Pucker up in a bold red lip inspired by Scarlett Johansson
  • Cover the entire eyelid with Mary Kay Cream Eye Color in Apricot Twist and dab Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Crystalline onto the inner corners of the eyes and under the brow bones
  • Apply Mary Kay Liquid Eyeliner in Black along the top lash line and wing outward. Generously coat top and bottom lashes with Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening Mascara in Black
  •  Line lips with Mary Kay Lip Liner in Clear. Apply Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick in Sizzling Red directly from the tube, using a lip brush if needed. Blot with Mary Kay Beauty Blotters and reapply for intense, long-lasting wear
  • Apply Mary Kay Luminous-Wear Liquid Foundation and contour using Mary Kay Mineral Bronzing Powering in Sandstone
If you are like me and prefer a more natural, subtle look then you have got to try out Anna Kendrick's look that Mary Kay recreated...it is sooo beautiful! Here is how YOU can look just like her!
Turn heads with defined eyes and a neutral lip inspired by Anna Kendrick
  • Begin with Mary Kay TimeWise Matte-Wear Liquid Foundation then dab Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Sparkling Cider on the apples of the cheeks
  • Apply Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in White Lilly to the eyelid and up to the brow bone, then blend Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Silver Satin onto the eyelid up to the crease
  • Apply Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Coal to the outer corner of the eye to create a smoky effect then line top and bottom lashes with Mary Kay Eyeliner in Black and smudge with a smudger brush
  • Generously apply two coats of Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening Mascara in Black
  • Line lips with Mary Kay Lip Liner in Neutral. Apply Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick in Natural Beaute to complete the look
For this review, I was sent some Mary Kay products to try and I love all of them! I wanted to share them briefly with you today and give you an idea of what I did with them. I was sent...

TimeWise Matte-Wear Liquid Foundation
 Luminous-Wear Liquid Foundation
True Dimensions Lipstick in Natural Beaute
True Dimensions Lipstick in Sizzling Red
Mineral Eye Color in White Lily, Crystalline and Silver Satin
Mineral Cheek Color in Sparkling Cider
Mineral Bronzing Powering in Sandstone
Mary Kay Beauty Blotters
Cream Eye Color in Apricot Twist
Lip Liner in Neutral and Clear
Lash Love Lengthening Mascara in Brown
Eyeliner in Black

I was really excited to try some of these looks and so I set right to work. The funny thing about this is that I didn't recreate either one of these looks, but kind of made my own...which turned out really great! I did utilize the tips that were given though and they are wonderful tips that really helped me get a great result. 
The first thing I tackled were my eyes. They are the hardest and require the most time so that is typically where I start. I love love LOVE the Mary Kay Mineral Eye Colors...they apply so nicely and look wonderful, especially when you blend light and dark colors together. So, I used the White Lily color on the upper portion of my eye lid and then blended the Silver Satin over the lids and just into the edge of where the White Lily color was. The look was oh so smoky and subtle. :) 
I have never used a brown colored mascara but it ended up looking really nice. I thought it would coat my dark lashes with sandy colored mascara but it didn't! I only use Mary Kay Mascara because I have found that it doesn't clump or look thick and also, because it stays put for long periods of time. Long wearing mascara is the best.
The Cream Eye Color is fantastic as well...very simple to apply and it looks so soft and subtle when you are done. I have used this in the past and love it! You can use a cotton swab, foam beauty wedges or cosmetic pads to apply and it looks wonderful. 
My lips are probably the most fun to make up and so I was excited to try the True Dimensions Lipstick as it is very moist and smooth and gives my lips a really nice finished look. Now, my undaring self would have first tried out the Natural Beaute color but I decided to go a bit on the wild side and use the Sizzling Red. Oh. My. Goodness. It was VERY red but so gorgeous. I loved how smooth it went on and stayed so smooth even after applying. 
I forgot to mention that before applying the Lipstick, you should use a Lip Liner to keep everything in place. Lip Liner also gives you a guide in which you can apply your lipstick without worrying about sloppiness. The Clear Lip Liner works great for light shades of lipstick and the Neutral (which looks pink) works wonderfully for darker lipsticks. Neutral is what I used with the Sizzling Red Lipstick. 
 Until I met Mary Kay's line of cheek colors, I used whatever brand I thought would look good on me. Now I only ever use Mary Kay and love it! The Mineral Bronzing Powder adds shimmer and dimension to your complexion and it really does highlight well. Mineral Cheek Color is also really nice because it adds a bit of color and more dimension. 
Sooo, this is how I looked after playing with all of my makeup. Doesn't it look great? I think the red lipstick is a bit much for me (or not...what do you think?) but it certainly could be used for special occasions. (I just have to keep it out of my daughter's reach or she will try it too!) I still have so much to learn about using makeup but it is fun to try out different products and find out which colors and types work best for my skin. 
Each of these and other fabulous Mary Kay beauty products can be found on their website and you can also find a beauty consultant near you to help you decide which products will look the best on you. 

So, in my opinion...Mary Kay truly has suceeded in re-creating some great celebrity looks. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking to spruce up their makeup collection this summer and go for a bolder look or just something a bit fresher. 

Mary Kay has offered to giveaway one of the above looks to one of you! The winner will have their choice of look...either the Scarlett Johansson look or the Anna Kendrick look. Here are your entry options...
