At last night’s SAG Awards 2023, Emily Blunt embodied a literal Eden wearing a floral-bedecked bandage gown from Oscar de la Renta styled with a serpentine choker by Bulgari.
To further the narrative, Blunt’s beauty veered sultry and insouciant—save for the very purposeful carmine lip. “I think we all agreed on the thought of some ‘undone’ sexy hair paired with glowy skin, strong lashes, and a spring pop of color on the lips,” says makeup artist Jenn Streicher, who used Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Color in Ardente and Flamboyante to achieve the perfect shade.
The actor’s luminous skin came courtesy of both Chanel Baume Essentiel Multi-Use Glow Stick in Rosée and Sculpting, each delivering warmth and light while keeping skin as dewy as a mythological garden would demand. Blunt’s seemingly untouched blonde lent to the effortless appeal, achieved by hairstylist Laini Reeves (post-air-dry) with a series of pin-shaped curls brushed out to careless perfection, finished with a mist of Goldwell StyleSign Just Smooth Protect & Shine Spray for added sheen. The end result was both bold and dreamy, a representation of a styling team with a well-honed collaborative synergy.
“We always discuss as a team once Emily chooses her dress, then Emily, myself, and Jen will discuss the look,” says Reeves of the process. And, for Streicher’s part, the looks tend to speak for themselves. “She’s my muse,” says Streicher of Blunt. “I feel like I do my best work with her.”
