Modern Family's Sofia Vergara wore a Roberto Cavalli gown on her body at the SAG Awards last night, but what did she wear on her face? Something much more affordable and accessible, it turns out: CoverGirl.
Vergara's celebrity makeup artist Kayleen McAdams says, "We wanted to create a Brigitte Bardot inspired beauty look with a lot of lashes and a glamorous smoky eye. It was a classic Sofia beauty look, but just amped up a bit."
"To highlight Sofia’s flawless complexion I used just a touch of concealer under her eyes and then applied CoverGirl NatureLuxe Silk Foundation in Chestnut followed by Covergirl Clean Pressed Powder Oil Control in Soft Honey," McAdams said. "I added just a touch of highlighter on her cheekbones, forehead and the bridge of her nose for a healthy glow and finished the skin with Cheekers Blush in Classic pink applied on the apples of her cheeks."
"For her smoky eye I first lined the top of the eyes with LiquiLineBlast in Brown Blaze very close to the lash line and the bottom of the eye from the inner to outer corner," she said. "I made the line on the top very thick and smoky and then blended it out to a cat-eye shape. I then applied CoverGirl Eye Enhancers in Coffee Shop over the liner to soften it and brought that color all the way up to the crease of her eye. Next I added a thin line of Line Exact in Black Brown right at the lash line to add thickness to her lashes and finished the eye with lots of lashes; 3 coats of LashBlast Fusion in very Black on the top and one on the bottom."
"For Sofia’s mauve lip, I used CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Entwined for rich color with a creamy finish."
