Proving that simple can be oh-so-chic, Olivia Munn was a minimalistâ€™s dream at the 2018 SAG Awards on Sunday, January 21, in an embellished Oscar de la Renta column gown that she paired with glowing skin and sleek hair. The presenterâ€™s shiny locks and rosy makeup look was a lesson in cool-girl beauty, and we went straight to Munnâ€™s glam squad to get exclusive behind-the-scenes details on how the look came together and what itâ€™s like to hang out with star before the show!
Not surprisingly, Chanel makeup artist Patrick Ta told Us exclusively that Munn is super low-key on award show days. He and hairstylist Christian Wood spent the afternoon eating â€œall the Chef Cut beef jerkyâ€ they â€œcould handleâ€ at the actressâ€™ home, while watching playoff football.
But it wasnâ€™t all touch-downs and meat products â€” they also created a killer look from head to toe, with Munnâ€™s dress serving as inspiration. With its silver-sequined bodice, matching leaf-like appliquÃ© and black skirt, Munnâ€™s form-fitting strapless gown was understatedly elegant, and Ta says that he chose to create a â€œclean and freshâ€ makeup style that called to mind â€œsultry, high-shine glam.â€

To give the actress a sculpted complexion, he contoured the hollows of her cheekbones and around her hairline with Soleil Tan de Chanel. He then highlighted the high points of her face using Le Correcteur de Chanel in 10 Beige and added additional radiance â€” the goal was to make her cheeks â€œliterally glowâ€ â€” with a combination of Chanel Joues Contrastes in Hyperfresh and Le Signe du Lion Illuminating Powder in Or Blanc on the apples of the cheeks.
Ta is known for his inventive product hacks, and, for this look, he made Chanelâ€™s new Poudre a LÃ¨vres Lip Balm and Powder Duo in Rosa Tempera work overtime on Munnâ€™s lips, eyes and cheeks to create a â€œmonochromaticâ€ look. â€œAlways incorporate the same color tone when applying your eyes, cheeks and lips,â€ Ta told Us. â€œThis makes any glam look put together.â€
Since the plan for the look was to keep everything â€œsleek,â€ Wood used the soon-to-be-launching Hair Rituel by Sisley collection to create Munnâ€™s smooth and shiny locks. In order to style the healthy, bouncy look, Wood washed the actressâ€™ hair with Sisleyâ€™s Revitalizing Smoothing Shampoo with Macadamia Oil and Restructuring Conditioner.

He then gave her a blowout using theÂ new Hair Rituel by Sisley Revitalizing Fortifying Serum, before creating a graphic center part and straightening the hair with his ghd flatiron. The finishing touch was an additional dose of â€œhealthy shineâ€ courtesy of the Hair Rituel by Sisley Precious Hair Care Oil, which, along with the rest of the Hair Rituel by Sisley collection, will be launching February 15 at sisley-paris.com.
With so much glamour and good snacks in her getting ready routine, hereâ€™s hoping we score an invite to Munnâ€™s pre-SAGs prep next year!
