Last night's CMA Awards confirmed that country has truly gone mainstream! What sort of started with Taylor Swift ruling the pop charts, grew steam with (one of my faves) Lady Antebellum's reign with "Need You Now" and finally culminated in Hollywood sweetheart Gwyneth Paltrow's fabulous performance.
Also on hand: real Tinseltown celebs on the red carpet. With Nicole Kidman and Katherine Heigl married to country stars, glam beauty did not disappoint. I especially loved Heigl's look, which took a classic country music look -- blue eyeshadow -- into the 21st century. The star's makeup pro, Angela Levin, tells UsMagazine.com how she created Heigl's look.
"On Katherine's eyes, I used the Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow in Kaska Beige, using all four colors in the compact, and a bit of the smoky blue shadow from Chanel Eyeshadow Duo in Bleu-Tendre. I sculpted her brows with Chanel Precision Brow Definer in Blond Clair," she tells Us.
"On her lips I used Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Cashmere, topped with Chanel Glossimer in Pleasing," Levin says. "Finally, I applied three coats of Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir for a dramatic effect."
