Let’s admit it, we all had a little bit of red carpet envy following the awards season this year. The stars kept it classic and fabulous with a few modern twists. Follow these easy steps for a more wearable, modern take on Hollywood Glam.
STEP 1: CURL AND SET YOUR HAIR
Curl and set your hair by using hot rollers or a curling iron. Pin the curls in place and allow to cool while you start with your makeup.
STEP 2: SKIN
Apply a sheer foundation and conceal where needed for a fresh and dewy look.
I used: M.A.C. Cosmetics Face and Body foundation in C1.
STEP 3: EYES
Line your eyes from the inner corner to the outer corner without extending it into a flick. Be sure to keep the line as thin and close to the lashes as possible.
I used: M.A.C. Cosmetics Fluidline in Blacktrack.
STEP 4: LASHES
Apply mascara to your top lashes only, really working it into the roots.
I used: M.A.C. Cosmetics Sized To Go Zoomfast Blacklash.
STEP 5: BROWS
Lightly fill in your brows, if necessary. Brush them up and embrace their natural shape.
I used: M.A.C. Cosmetics Fluidline Brow Gelcreme in Deep Dark Brunette.
STEP 6: LIPS
Apply your favourite red lipstick covering the entire lip surface, straight from the bullet. Rub your lips together to create a naturally fuller lip. Then go in again with a lip brush to achieve a more precise shape.
I used: M.A.C. Cosmetics lipstick in Viva Glam.
STEP 7: FINISH OFF THE LOOK
Release the curls and shake them out vigorously, seperating them with your fingers. Use your fingers to create the desired shape and finish off with some hairspray.
