Elementary star Lucy Liu revealed that she enjoys putting on makeup because she loves “how it can transform the way you look and feel” in a recent interview for Thandie Newton and Kay Montano’s website ThandieKay. She recalled early memories of watching her mother apply beauty products in front of a vanity mirror, and remembers her applying a moisturizer, a swipe of eyeliner, and lipstick as a part of her routine.
Liu’s ultimate beauty tip has nothing to do with eyeliner or lipstick: exercise and eat well. She says she feels the most beautiful when she’s been keeping up with healthy living habits.
What’s something that doesn’t make Lucy Liu feel amazing? Artificially darkening her skin too much, which Liu admitted was her worst beauty mishap. “I look back now and just think it looks so unnatural,” she says.
Makeup artist Margina Dennis told Daily Glow that yellow-toned base foundations and concealers look the best on Asian skin tones like Liu’s. To find the best match when shopping for foundation, she recommends swiping three colors that are tonally different (pink, neutral/beige, and yellow) along the jawline. The one that matches will blend in, while the others will look slightly off. In order to achieve a smooth and even application, Dennis recommends moisturizing the skin before applying and using a makeup primer.
She obviously couldn’t accept the award in Seoul because she’s working for the next ten months, so she taped this message from New York:
“Hi! I am so thrilled to be accepting the Seoul International Award for Best Actress. It is a huge honor for me, and I was incredibly surprised when I found out that I had won.
“For me, it’s really special to be playing such a classic character. Being somebody who is a woman and someone who is Asian, it’s especially an honor to be a part of such a wonderful production.
“I would like to thank CBS, Rob Doherty, who is the creator of the show, and Carl Beverly, who is the producer. And of course I want to thank Jonny Lee Miller, who is my co-star and someone who brings out the best in me every single day.
“I want to thank all my fans in Korea who have given me the opportunity to get to where I am today. So I want to send my gratitude, my appreciation, and my love to all of you. I will cherish this award forever. Thank you again so much.”

“Elementary” Season 1 is coming to DVD with a bunch of extras. One of those extras is the featurette, “A Holmes of Their Own.” Watch Lucy Liu talk about characters — especially Watson — in this exclusive video preview.
In the video, Liu talks about her first impressions of the “Elementary” characters from when she got the earliest scripts. Needless to say, she was impressed. The actress also discusses the kind of research she does in order to get ready for playing a new character.
What are some of the highlights?
Liu was strongly impressed that the creators of “Elementary” were willing to let Holmes be a full-on drug addict (albeit a recovering one).
“I think the simpler you play a character, sometimes, the better.” This seems like it would make sense.
The fact that someone got Lucy Liu to sit outside and give an interview when snow was falling is just plain impressive. It looks kind of cool too.
This video will be available as part of “Elementary – The First Season on DVD,” starting on Aug. 27. “Elementary” Season 2 premieres Thursday, Sept. 26 at 10pm on CBS.
This was back in June but I thought I would post this interview anyway!
The cameras have started rolling for series two of Sherlock drama Elementary – and the cast have ventured across the Atlantic to film in the UK.
The US Arthur Conan Doyle adaptation sees the iconic British detective given a contemporary update and reincarnated as an ex-Scotland Yard consultant turned drug addict who has fled his native England for New York City.
After leaving rehab at the start of series one Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) was forced to live with his sober companion Dr. Joan Watson (Lucy Liu playing our first female Watson!) to ensure he stayed on the straight and narrow. Now clean and back to his crime-solving ways Holmes and Watson are an unstoppable team. The series one finale saw Holmes realise that his mortal enemy Moriarty is actually his former lover Irene Adler (Natalie Dormer).
So as filming for series two kicks off, the crime-solving are back in the characters’ literary home, London – on the South Bank with their bags in hand and a classic British black cab in the background. It’s the first time production has moved outside of New York, but why are they here? The Hollywood Reporter have revealed that the season two premiere will see Holmes revisit an old case and face his past while Watson will learn more about her partner’s mysterious life before he moved to New York…
Lucy did a google hangout yesterday and talked about her Lebanon visit and the Syria Crisis’ impact on children. You can view the video below.
Congratulations to Lucy and the rest of the invited actors and actresses.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences invited 276 new members into the organization on Friday — 100 more than were included in the 2012 invitees — including a large number of minorities and women, such as Rosario Dawson, Lucy Liu, Sandra Oh, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Peña,Danny Trejo and Chris Tucker in the actors branch.
The larger invitee list reflects the academy’s recent decision to expand and diversify its ranks by relaxing a cap on membership that has restricted new admittances since 2004.
The new invitees also illustrates a shift to a younger membership with actors Jason Bateman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rebecca Hall and Paula Patton gaining admittance.
There’s a video as well but I am unable embed it on the site.
If you’re more into TV shows than tackling, don’t worry — Super Bowl Sunday has something for you too.
This year the freshman drama Elementary has scored the plum post-Super Bowl game slot, and the Sherlock Holmes drama has an excellent new episode in store for fans and newbies alike. In this preview video, the cast of the hit CBS drama takes you behind the scenes of the highly-anticipated episode, which has Holmes working with an ex (Kari Matchett) to find a mad man who’s loose on the streets of New York.
Elementary star Jonny Lee Miller also muses on his character’s evolving relationship with Joan Watson, played by Lucy Liu. “The characters are still trying to figure each other out,” he says. “They’ve gotten closer, but there are still moments where they’re not quite connecting fully.”
