One woman who decided to go a little bold on the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild Awards last weekend was Claire Danes. The actress may not have made headlines for her makeup in 2012, but she’s certainly put herself on the map in 2013 following her appearance at the recent event.

Danes kept her hair tied back in a loose ponytail and allowed her pout to do all the work as she walked across the red carpet. She opted for a deep magenta lipstick – a daring move that paid off. Danes used a little beige eyeshadow on her lids and went natural throughout the rest of her face, which seems to be a trend across Hollywood. Showcasing your features sans makeup is one style you may want to try if you’re in the market for a new look.

So how do you get Danes’ pout without looking like a clown?

The key to wearing a bold color on your lips is owning it. Confidence is key when sporting anything from hot pink to deep purple. Another way to ensure that you aren’t going overboard is to go low-key on the rest of your face like Danes. Natural is beautiful!

Can't leave the house without my... - Lip gloss. The rest of the day can be a total bust, but if I have a great gloss on I feel like at least I've done one thing right! I would describe my style as... - Definitely au naturale. While I love exploring new shades of eyeshadow and liner on special occasions, for me the most important part of any beauty regimen is keeping my skin clear and blemish-free.
