Chrissy Teigen Glowing at the Grammy’s. Get Her Look!



58th annual Grammy Awards ~ Los Angeles, CA ~


Chrissy Teigen showed us her natural baby bump glow with her radiant look brought to us by her makeup artist Mary Phillips for Kiehl’s Since 1851 and Physicians Formula.  

What inspired Chrissy’s look?

“Her white dress with the crystal and beading detailing is so beautiful. The lines are very clean on it, and the details are powerful but sort of precious at the same time, so we didn’t want the makeup to compete with that, we wanted the makeup to play INTO those vibes. Something bold, but still soft; color pops but in a neutralized palette that look so good with her skin tone, eye color, and hair color. Warm bronzes and heated dessert tones just make all of those natural colors a bit more lifted and 3-D.

The fact that she’s pregnant doesn’t alter the makeup or what I do so much as it does INSPIRE me in a different way. Pregnancy to me is such a special time, and a sacred moment, there’s something so magical about it, something peaceful and endearing, so I don’t want to cover that up, or try and have her appear overly done. She really does have that “glow” about her, a certain freshness, and something that’s also refreshing at the same time. She’s very genuine as well in herself, what you see is what you get, and that’s one of the things (of many) that I love about her, so what I want to do with her makeup is just go OFF of that. Makeup shouldn’t be fake or contrived – It should just be an extension of you. That’s what I tried to convey with this look: just sexy, real, confident and making a large emphasis on keeping the skin as dewy and glowy as possible, even though she already has that naturally, as I mentioned earlier. This palette pairing mixed with what we chose to play up regarding her stunning features, makes for an effortless strong sort of beauty.”






Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque


Typically I wouldn’t do a mask like this the day of, but when I tested it out myself, I was super impressed, I liked all the “stages” it goes through – Super thick, gentle and cooling, then it really heats up in a warm way that draws blood to the surface for an added glow, and when you take it off, it acts as a gentle exfoliator. I didn’t put it ALL over, just on the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin.


Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate

Anything that sinks into the skin right away, that’s extremely nourishing and doesn’t have a strong or offensive scent – I’m down! It has a relaxing, almost aromatherapy scent that I love – Like a spa. The consistency is so thin, that you can put it everywhere and it doesn’t leave a greasy aftermath.


Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream

I thought it would feel heavier on the skin because of its consistency, but it absorbed almost right away and really sealed in the concentrate. It creates a really great base that didn’t interrupt the makeup, it enhanced it.


Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

I love this eye cream. Gently pat it on the orbital bone of your eye area is really starts to melt in. Fine lines are greatly reduced because of its rich it texture. I like to pat on eye cream with my ring finger, you want to be extra sensitive when applying anything to the eye, and this is safe enough that you can apply to the top and bottom lid and well as the sides along the temple.


Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1

When it comes to makeup, I feel like we always hear about skincare, which is hugely important, obviously. But you can’t wear a great lipstick, lip stain, lip gloss – anything —- Without the proper lip care! Scaly dry lips are not cute, and will only be exacerbated by any makeup products. I like to layer something like this on, very thick, even outside the lip line, and just let the lips drink it up. Right before I apply anything to the lip, I have the client wipe it off with either a dry wash cloth, or a warm wet one – It depends on your personal preference. It acts as almost an exfoliant and wipes away the product to reveal fresh even textured baby lips.




Armani Maestro Glow in: 08, 07, 5.5

I like to use varying shades, it gives the most realistic effect for sexy, healthy 3-D skin. Skin in its natural state is never just ONE full shade. If you’re applying one whole color to your face, you’re making it look FLAT. Create a more natural 3-D effect by layering sheerer colors, but this product is different because it’s like a foundation, highlighter in ONE. The texture is super thin too, so you’re able to control its overall effect and coverage. Applied with a blush brush and Beauty Blender.


Armani Maestro Foundation

To mattify certain areas of the face that you don’t want to have too much extra sheen, because then the skin just ends up looking oily instead of dewy, I applied Armani Maestro Foundation in colors 4.0 and 5.25 to the forehead, bridge of the nose, apples of the cheeks, and sides of the neck and center of the décolletage. If you like skin to look like skin, then this is the foundation for you!



Lancome Effacernes Waterproof Protective Concealer

For a waterproof concealer, this is highly moisturizing and the orange undertones in the shade CAMÈE are perfect for neutralizing darkness under the eye, or a little redness around the nose. I applied this under the eye, from the inner tear duct to a little part the outer tear duct, and brought it down to the cheek area on the outside of the bridge of the nose and outside the mouth, and along the cupids bow as well.


Physicians Formula Super BB #InstaReady Contour Trio Stick SPF 30 in Bronze Trio

I like contour to be super sheer and barely there, and while this one was super thin, it also added a radiance to the areas that I applied it to.


Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra-Nourishing Argan Oil Face Powder in Translucent

At the very end, to set the makeup, I used a neutral powder, but barely applied any—I try not to apply too much powder! I dusted a little bit on the forehead, bridge of the nose, apples of her cheeks, and on the chin so there was no shine, but still maintained her glow.





Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra-Nourishing Argan Oil Blush in Natural

Just a little bit to the apples of the check and the upper crest of the forehead near the hair line and dusted along the chin and neck gives a barely there, but still LIT appearance that’s very natural. This is a great color!


Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blusher in Love Glow

This is a beautiful, natural color for a super warm undertone, sheer but not too sheer, not sparkly, just right! Apply to the apples of the cheeks for that fresh pop of color that adds extra dimension.




Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Extreme Shimmer Shadow and Liner in Bronze Nude

Use the lighter colors for your lift and highlight, and the darker ones for more depth and pop. The brown in this palette really gives the eyes that added dose of definition.


Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra-Nourishing Argan Oil Kohl Kajal Eyeliner

Just on the top lashes in between the lash hairs to add a thicker bolder lash without the heaviness of a liquid line sitting on top. Instead it’s resting in-between the lashes.


Tom Ford Eye Defining Pencil in Espresso

Applied on the lower lash line and very diffused with a dome micro brush. I wanted to create the illusion of a liner without any shapes or lines, for a softer smoker eye.


Kevyn Aucoin The Curling Mascara

Kevyn Aucoin mascara does not disappoint. This gives long and full lashes, and it’s easy to apply, and really get to the base of the root, which will give you that false lash look!  I like to wiggle it at the base of the lashes.




Bite Beauty Lip Liner in Cashew

Such a good nude! Apply on the outer corners a little more densely, and soften as you get to the inner top and bottom portions.


Tom Ford Lipstick in Smoke Sable

Apply all over with a lip brush for a smooth luxe finish. Apply outside, working your way to the center of the lips.


Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Bare Blush

I applied this all over with a brush. A very thin veil of it, subtle shine, not super glossy!
