A lesson in colour chic-ness. Just in time for us to prep for our makeup look for the holiday season next month!
If there’s one thing we love about Lily Collins, other than her impeccable red carpet styles, it’s her perfection in effortlessly nailing every makeup look. We’re looking at her latest endeavour on the red carpet at the Hollywood Film Awards 2016 on November 6. Not only did the 27-year-old stun in her V-cut David Koma dress but she nabbed herself the “New Hollywood Award” for her upcoming film Rules Don’t Apply (aptly presented by the director himself, Warren Beatty).
With that, courtesy of Lancôme, we’re juicing you with a step by step guide to copy Lily’s makeup look from makeup artist, Molly R. Stern who mentioned that the look is ‘a modern nod to an extremely classic look’.
On her face: To start, prep skin with some rose mist spray and pat on Advanced Génifique Serum to quench the skin. For a semi matte even skin tone, buff in Teint Idole Ultra Cushion Foundation in 090 Ivoire. Add warmth back to skin by lightly tapping in the Cushion Blush Subtil in Sorbet Grenadine for a sheer flush on the apples of the cheeks. Using the Sourcils Styler brow gel in Brun, apply maximum formula by brushing it from the tips and work your way towards the centre for a full brow look ala Lily’s.
On her eyes: Captivate your peepers with a deep ruby hue from Colour Design Eyeshadow in Ruby Velvet on the entire eyelid followed by the Colour Design Eyeshadow in Fashion Label on the crease and under the eye for added drama. Then line the base of the lash line with a pristine crisp line using Lancôme Grandiôse Liner in Matte Noir. Finish the eye look by curling the lashes before applying 2 coats of black mascara from Grandiôse Extreme mascara.
On her lips: Give the pout some reddish hue by lining the entire lip with Le Lipstique lip liner in Sheer Chocolate. For that hint of sheen use a sheer rich plum colour from L’Absolu Rouge in 359 Hypnotique.
