Annette Bening's Makeup Artist Gives Us the Scoop!

01/15/2007 at 02:00 PM ET

Makeup artist Julie Hewett will be dashing back to LA from the Ocean’s 13 set, where she tends to George Clooney, to do Annette Bening’s makeup for the Globes. Even though she has worked for sixteen years on “Annette’s beautiful canvas,” Hewett has to wait and see what the star is wearing before deciding on her colors, even with a lipstick in her cult makeup line for the Running With Scissors nominee. “You never know until the last minute which dress will work. We expect to take about two to three hours to get her ready. It’s always a dance between the makeup artist and hairdresser and sometimes a manicurist. We’ll see what we want to do that day – a smoky eye or a stronger lip.” And she’ll send the star off with one of her lip pencils and a Mimi lip-gloss, created not to be too sticky — lucky for hubby Warren who will no doubt get a congratulatory kiss for his Cecil B. DeMille award.

Because I wasn’t born when Warren Beatty was up and coming I never realized how incredibly talented he is. Multi-talented. He has a nice body of work. So now I understand why he was difficult to tame. His acceptance speech for lifetime achievement was memorable and remarkable for his humility and appreciation. He shared and gave graciously even while accepting.

Annette Bening is a remarkable woman and would have to be considering Warren’s accomplishments.

What a beautiful graceful power couple.

I loved her husbands speach. It was very funny. You could tell she was truly supportive of her husband. She looked very pretty.

She is amazing beautiful. very clean and crisp look about her which is so refreshing since she barely has make up on. I can only hope i look that good at her age.

Annette’s got so much natural beauty~ Love her hair! Nothing like a handsome husband and a ‘few’ kids to keep you active and ‘on the go…’

what a great couple she and warren make. i also believe that she’s not recognized as she should be for her acting ability.
i wish she’d whiten her teeth and darken her hair just a tad.

She looks great for her age.
