Want your make up to slay like actress Diane Guerrero’s? Here’s how.

Diane Guerrero's make up look was on point for the SAG Awards.

Orange is the New Black and Jane the Virgen star Diane Guerrero, 29, dominated the red carpet at the 2016 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards. We instantly fell in love with her overall look but couldn’t help but notice her makeup was on point, slaying times 100.

The actress, who was born in New Jersey to Colombian parents, took home a Screen Actor’s Guild Award for Outstanding Performance in an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.


The 5’2” latina was pretty in pink in a strapless, fuchsia-colored Angel Sanchez gown but her look for night, which was styled by Oscar Montes de Oca, wouldn’t have been complete without the expert hands of her glam squad, celebrity makeup artist Mila Thomas, hair stylist Marcia Hamilton and nail artist Mr. Luis.


Mila Thomas, the Glam Coordinator and key makeup artist for VH1’s Love & Hip Hop Hollywood Seasons 1 and 2, spoke to Press Pass Latino about how she achieved Guerrero’s young Hollywood glam look.


She shared a step-by-step “how to”  to recreate Diane Guerrero’s flawless makeup on the red carpet of this year’s SAG Awards in her own words:


“To achieve Diane Guerrero’s “Young Hollywood Glam Look” I began by prepping Diane’s skin with Marc Jacobs Under Cover Perfecting Coconut Face Primer to hydrate and nourish her complexion, and extend the wear of her makeup.


I then customized her foundation by mixing MAC Cosmetics Match Master SPF 15 and Makeup Forever Ultra  HDFluid Foundation applied with my damp beauty blender sponge. (For a more cost effective foundation I suggest trying Loreal Paris’ True Match in W8 or W7).

For a lit within highlight I applied Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly under her eyes, the center of her nose and in the middle of her forehead. My favorite contour color for Guerrero is Black Opal True Color Stick Foundation in Hazelnut. I love it because it gives a rich warm glow to her face.


Next, everything is set with Laura Mercia Translucent Loose Setting Powder.


To enhance Diane’s bronzy glow, I applied Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter Pressed in Golden Bronze Pearl to her cheek bones, and down the center of her nose with a damp fan brush.

To create Guerrero’s sultry smokey eye, I applied a champagne pigment from MAC Cosmetics in Tan. Afterwards, I used Urban Decay’s Moonstruck and dabbed it in the center of her eyelids and in the inner corners of her eyes in order to reflect the bright lights on the red carpet. Soft taupe’s from the Morphe 35o Palette were applied in the crease and finally Inglot #77 AMC Eyeliner Gel smudge in the water line.


After applying Mink Lashes by Egyptian Queen Beauty, I added two coats of Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Mascara to make to make the lashes really pop!

Lastly,  I filled in Diane’s lips with MAC Cosmetics Spice lip liner Mixed with Too Faced Melted Liquefied Long Wear Lipstick in Nude and dabbed Nars lip gloss in Giza to the center for a fresh glossy pout.”

Inspiration for the look: Thomas drew inspiration from Guerrero’s Old Hollywood-style hot pink Angel Sanchez gown and opted for her signature “Young Hollywood Glam” look,  a fresh-faced, youthful, and glamorous look with a glow. Thomas dubbed this “red carpet makeup moment” as sultry, fresh and bronzy.


On working with Diane Guerrero: “Diane was totally on board with trying out this look! She’s super confident and loves to try new looks, so she just let me do my thing. She’s amazing to work with!”
