Make-up artist Justine Jenkins and hair stylist Lisa Eastwood created a modern day version of a 1940s beauty look for the E! presenter on the BAFTA Awards 2014 red carpet
She may have only been a presenter on the night – but she didn’t half steal the show at theBAFTAs 2014.
Radio 1’s Fearne Cotton – who was hosting E!’s red carpet coverage of the awards ceremony alongside Dermot O’Leary – looked breathtaking in a gold sequined William Vintage gown and a gorgeous, modern beauty look.
We spoke to Fearne’s glam squad – consisting of cruelty-free make-up artist Justine Jenkins and celebrity hair stylist Lisa Eastwood – about how they went about creating her red carpet look and the inspiration behind their choices.

“To compliment Fearne’s dress, I wanted her make up to have the feel of old school glamour with a modern twist,” said her make-up artist Justine Jenkins.
She made sure Fearne’s skin was heavily hydrated for her evening hosting at the Royal Opera House.
“As the weather can throw anything at you on BAFTA night and the make up needs to last, the skin needs to be hydrated and prepped,” said Justine.
“After a mini facial massage, I applied an eye mask and Murad’s Radiance Peel Mask to freshen the skin, then Melvita’s Rose Mask to hydrate.
“I then took time moisturising Fearne’s skin using Dr Haushka’s Rose Day cream.”

She used Hourglass’s Veil Mineral Primer and its Veil Fluid Foundation was set with Bare Minerals Mineral Veil powder on the T Zone.
She then moved onto the focal point of Fearne’s BAFTA make-up – the stunning copper eyeshadow that complemented her metallic gown beautifully.
