Lovestruck Lips: Glam Red Carpet Makeover for the Show Stoppers
Sexy and strong — Red evokes femininity in its best expressions. For a show stopping look that can send you straight to the top, a red pout is a sure shot winner. Swipe on a bold winged liner and luscious lashes to nail the glam. Radiant skin, defined lines and unapologetic confidence are great accompaniments to this red carpet slayer. If making heads turn is your game, this classic charm must be your beauty theme for that special occasion. Softly sculpted clean skin is the first step to getting this timeless beauty makeover rolling. The focus is on highlighting
your natural features and giving them a boost to carve out the expressive eyes and lips. Precision is the keyword here, with a gentle touch of feminine energy. Without much adieu, here’s an inside look at this captivating makeup look.
Sultry Smooth Lips
A good artist is always on a journey to explore and learn more about her art. At the PK Lounge, I am always experimenting with fresh new hues to give every makeover an exclusive touch. Create your own colour by mixing and matching different lipstick shades. Here I have mashed up the bold Illamasqua ‘Box’ with the seductive Chanel Rouge Allure Vertige for this luxurious shade. NARS Precision Lip Liner perfects the pout with that defined elegance.
Red lipstick means business. Go on! Put on some right now and feel the power surging into you. It is often seen as a symbol of both grit and glamour; and that’s why you need red lipsticks in every shade there is. As an investment worth every penny for makeup lovers, here are some of my favourites:
The rich colour and luscious texture would have you falling forever in love with the MAC Retro Matte Ruby Woo lipstick.
Urban Decay F-Bomb Vice Lipstick is brighter with a creamy warm tone and a light glossy finish; ideal for those party night outs.
The intense Illamasqua Maneater is a classic matte with a warm red that is ideal for the Indian skin.
The Lady Balls Melted Matte Liquified Matte Lipstick by Too Faced glides on easily like a gloss, but stays on with a long wear matte finish.
Further up the ladder, Tom Ford True Coral lipstick is vibrant shade but lusciously indulgent for that pop of colour that makes style statements.
The richness of YSL Rouge Pur Couture Rock makes it a must-have in every bridal makeup kit. Christian Dior Addict Hydra Gel Core Mirror Shine ‘So Electric’ Lipstick is an instant glamour-stick for the spotlight moments.
Pro Tip:To make your lip shade last longer, place a tissue over the lips and dab on some loose powder over it. Now, remove the napkin and apply another layer of the lipstick.
Catch’em with a flick of your eyes! Sleek winged liner, lively lashes and subtle colour on the socket is all you need to take this look up the red carpet.
Work with nude earthy tones – I have used the Tartelette In Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette to create this particular look.
Lashes could be added for some extra drama and to bring attention to the eyes. Try Wynkme Lashes in Slay for a heavy by soft flutter or pump the volume up with Huda Beauty Lashes in Sasha.
Winged eyeliners are surely the show-stealers; but only when done right. And, it is easy to go wrong with them. Make sure to wing your eyes in sync with the eyeshadow used and your unique facial features. Each winged lining style looks different on different eye shapes. It is important to identify and choose what is best suited to accentuate your features, than blindly follow reference images.
So, where are you taking this power look? Gala event, spotlight appearance, all night partying or straight to the red carpet? Wherever it be, there’s no going back from that glam goddess style statement you’ll make.
