Red Carpet Ready

It’s easy to achieve some of our favorite red carpet looks.
Christina Hendricks’ big bright eyes:
NARS and celebrity makeup artist Vanessa Scali teamed up to create an exuberant look for Christina Hendricks at the 68th annual Golden Globe Awards. “I had this vision of a big, doe-eyed, lashy look from the late 70s and early 80s. To keep it modern, I kept the skin dewy with shimmering eyes and added a pop of matte texture on the lips,” said Vanessa.
Vanessa used four Nars products to create the look. Calanque Trio Eyeshadow and Hollywoodland Soft Touch Shadow Pencil (both new for spring 2011) as well as Nuits Blanches Eyeliner Stylo and Larger than Life Volumizing Mascara.
Julie Bowen’s glowing complexion:
Makeup artist Heather Currie enhanced Julie’s complexion with products by Tarte. Heather first prepped Julie’s skin with Tarte’s Clean Slate Natural Primer. She then applied ReCreate Anti-Agining Foundation with Wrinkle Rewind Technology in cool bisque #04. Next a touch of Tarte’s Dark Circle Defense Natural Under Eye Corretor in llight-to-medium was used before dabbing on New Smooth Operator Illuminating Serium on Julie’s Cheekbones for clean radiant skin.
Olivia Wilde’s sheer pink lips:
NARs and makeup artist Spencer Barnes created Olivia’s French girl look. “ I wanted her skin to be fresh and clean with eyes that extended outward. Touches of rose gold and sheer pink-veiled lips completed her youthful coquette-ish look.” Spencer said. To get those sublet girlish lips yourself you need to apply NARs’ Fantasia Lipliner Pencil around your lips. A good trick to keep your color lasting is to color-in your lips with the lipliner pencil as a base color and then apply your lipstick over it. Spencer used Madere Pure Matte Lipstick as well as Frivolous Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil for the perfect sheer pout.
