A Step By Step Guide To Dianna Agron’s Soft BAFTAs Beauty Look

A Step By Step Guide To Dianna's BAFTAs Look

At the BAFTAs Lancôme's team created the makeup looks for 150 faces. It was a military makeup operation, involving a LOT of lipstick - to be precise 300 Rouge in Love lipsticks and over 150 combinations of foundation.

Dianna Agron, star of Glee, wore a red Lanvin strapless gown, with her hair pinned back and beautiful soft makeup. She told Grazia that she wanted something effortless, and she loved her Lanvin look because it was 'so comfortable!'

We caught up with makeup artist Alex Babsky to find out how he created her beauty look. He said: “The dress was so elegant so rather than making the overall look soft I wanted to add some drama to the eyes which we did with the Hypnose palette and mascara.” Here's his step by step guide to the look...

1. I started by creating a flawless base using Teint Idole Ultra 010 and a light concealer - Le Correcteur pro 200W.

2. The eyelids were primed with La base Paupieres pro 03, to give an even, neutral tone to the eyes. I then worked Hypnose palette DO8 DO1 eye shadow onto the lids followed by a soft line of Le Crayon Khol Noir pencil liner.

3. The brows were combed through and shaded with Le Crayon Sourcils 01 eyebrow pencil.


4. The lashes were loaded with Hypnose mascara waterproof.

5. Dianna’s lips were lined in 211 Contour Pro lip pencil, a must have super natural shade that works with all skin tones and colour added via Rouge In Love 200b lipstick.

6. The look was finished with a soft swirl of Blush Subtil 03 Sorbet de Corail contour palette on the cheek bones.

A navy eye might seem bold on paper, but just going for lashings of mascara rather than a full-on smokey look stops it being too 80s.
