Thandie Newton's Changing Looks
Newton took on the role of Sally Hemings in Jefferson in Paris. "That's sweet-I would have definitely done my own hair and makeup then," she told us of her youthful look.
The Beloved beauty displayed her crowning glory in a complex updo. "It's nice," she said of the natural style. "I think soon after that I straightened it."
She let her beauty shine through with understated makeup and pin-straight locks.
For a Calvin Klein event, the Pursuit of Happyness star went for a mini-pompadour and a shimmery neutral makeup tones courtesy of pro Leslie Lopez.
"[Makeup artist] Kay Montano wanted to go for a Biba look," the Run Fatboy Run actress said of her '70s-inspired look. "I love that purple shadow, it's gorgeous-when I go for a color, it's purple." The hair was courtesy of Kerry Warn: "Because my hair was straightened at this point, he added the curl back in."
The always-incandescent star played Condoleezza Rice in Oliver Stone's W. "This was wonderful," Newton told us of this look. "The fabulous makeup artist Jo Stratton did it. This is more Hollywood I think, that kind of very shimmery glow."
The 37-year-old accented her full lips with bright magenta for a Matthew Williamson event-and graced both the large and small screens in 2012 and ER. "This is a nice sleek, simple eye line, so no smokiness, just really super simple," she said. "And I also really like occasionally get the parting way over to the side, like Veronica Lake. That's a great look."
Newton added pop to an otherwise understated look with a dramatic cat-eye. "I really love the liner," she told us of the style. "Stila does a great liquid liner that really stays on. The key is just to keep the base nice and even-I start with a moisturizer that's got a bit of color in it."
The actress styled her own fun retro look for the Good Deeds premiere. "It was risky," she said. "My husband was like, 'This is going to be a divider, Thandie.' I thought it was very Billie Holiday-slash-Prince."
Straightened hair and peony-hued lipstick made Newton's Golden Globes look a head-turner.
