The Tony Awards is a perennial favourite among style-watchers, who rely on the red carpet procession for new hair and makeup tips and inspiration. The 2016 performance was no exception: the stars prepared for the press and public with some fresh, trendy new looks that will provide a whole summer’s worth of style to copy.
Lupita Nyong'o looked gorgeous with deep blue metallic eyeshadow brushed into a cat’s-eye shape for maximum impact. Lipstick and blush in a warm peachy hue completed the sultry look. Another celeb who looked pretty in peach was Saoirse Ronan, whose pale skin tone was complemented by eye, lip, and cheek colour all in some shade of peach.
Cate Blanchett opted for drama by wearing edgy black eyeliner and pairing it with textured waves for a total grunge-chic vibe. Equally attention-grabbing was Michelle Williams, who doesn’t believe in limited vampy red lipstick for the holiday season. Her elegant white dress presented a demure- and ultra-stylish contrast.
Allison Williams looked cool on a hot summer night thanks to her hair slides, which appear to be making a style comeback. Sara Bareilles wore her hair in a twisted plait at the forehead, which will definitely be de rigeur for bridesmaids this season. Sara’s petal pink blush emphasised her cheekbones and made them glow.
Want glowing skin? Use Jourdan Dunn’s dual highlighter (champagne and bronze) to get her healthy and vibrant complexion. On the topic of flattering your skin tone, Claire Danes added some shimmer to her cranberry lip colour to enhance her tan. It worked!
Orange is the New Black star Danielle Brooks combined blue eye makeup with bright fuchsia lips for a bold and free-spirited vibe while Uzo Aduba wore a sleek, side-parted hairstyle that will be your best friend on humid summer nights.
Once again, the Tony Awards did not disappoint. Now we can’t wait for next year!
