How To Get Jenna Coleman’s Beautiful Beauty Look From The BAFTAs

How To Get Jenna Coleman's BAFTAs Beauty Look


by Grazia |

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.

One of those faces was Dr Who's Jenna Coleman who wore a beautiful floral Rochas gown with a triangle cut-out above the waistline. In between chatting about Eddie Redmaye, Jenna told us that she loved how it was comfortable and modern, while stile making a statement.

We caught up with her makeup artist Shehla Shaikh to find out how she created the look using Lancôme products. She told us: ‘We wanted to go for a softly smoky eye that defined but didn’t take away too much from Jenna’s modern, romantic Rochas gown.’ Here are the steps to getting the look...

1. Jenna’s skin was prepped and evened using Teint Idole Ultra 01 and her under-eyes brightened with Teint Miracle Pen 02.

2. A subtle rose coloured blush was applied to the cheekbones( Blush Subtil Rose Sable)

3. To create the perfect, low key smoky eye, Shehla used Hypnose Palette ST7, gradually blending colour along the socket.

4. For added definition she used a smudge of Brown Kohl Pencil along the lash-line before coating the lashes in Grandiose mascara.

5. Lips were kept natural with a modern nude tone created with a base of 211 Lip Pencil followed by 200B Rouge in Love lipstick to give a subtle sheen.

Deep, Hollywood style waves are a great compliment to Sarah Jane’s glossy nude lip - it keeps it very British and fresh.

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.

Flying the flag for redheads everywhere, Hayley looks resplendent with sharp sculpted cheekbones and a soft glow.

We can practically see our reflection in the mirror-like shine of Charlotte’s hair - we’ve heard a rumour she had a glossing treatment at London salon, FOUR, the day before...

An updo and a scarlet lip are a classic combination, but the mussed-up texture gives Alice an edge.

Hello, screen siren! That red lip is a bold choice with her canary yellow frock but Lea pulls it off expertly.
