My favorite celebrity Red lips looks :Part 2

Continuing the list of My Favorite celebrity red lips look from the previous post- My favorite celebrity Red lips looks (part 1)…

6. Mischa Barton

While the blonde tresses give her a very damsel-in-distress look, I like her more a brunette especially with the red lips. She looks beautiful and classy with her hair tied back and a touch of green in her earrings.

How to wear this look : Opt for a  foundation that gives a dewy natural look and add  just a touch of warm pink blush on the cheeks. line the upper lash line thickly with black liner and use lots of mascara to open up the eyes.

7. Cameron Diaz

I don’t know if its the side swept hair , the cut of the black dress or the red lips, but Cameron Diaz looks perfectly gorgeous here!

How to wear this look :  Apply peachy gold eye shadow all over the lid and on the lower lash line. Line the water line with natural brown eye pencil. Use a defining mascara for the lashes. Use a foundation that gives a natural dewy look to your face and a touch of warm pink blush on the sheeks. Dab a little clear gloss at the center of the lower lip.

8. Kate Bosworth

Kate Bosworth looks ethereal and classy at the same time with her lovely blonde hair , luminous skin and minimal accessories.

How to wear this look : Healthy beautiful glowing skin is the key to this look. Use a foundation that gives a dewy look mixed with a little luminizing product (products that add a glow to the face due to presence of ultra fine shimmer). Just a touch of warm pink or peach blush on the cheeks and mascara is all required to complete this look.

9. Penelope Cruz

One of my favorite red lips looks. Penelope Cruz looks bold and beautiful with the matte red lips.

How to wear this look : Thick black liner on upper lash line, blackest black kohl on water line, false eye lashes and lots of volumizing mascara. Earthy brown/pink blush on cheeks and a matte red lip.

10. Sienna Miller

This simple and casual look looks wonderful despite the red top and matching lip. The leopard print scarf breaks the monotony of the red color and saves the look from being a disaster!  Love how beautifully tanned she looks!

How to wear this look : Use a dewy foundation on the face and a matte bronzer on the forehead, cheeks, nose and jawline. Use a subtle highlighter on the bridge of the nose, cheekbones and forehead. Line waterline with natural brown pencil and upper lash line with a thin line of black liner. Use lengthening mascara to open up the eyes and pair with a matte red lipstick.

My favorite celebrity Red lips looks : Part 1

Hi everyone!

Red lips are glamorous and always in vogue, I have been lately bitten by the ‘red lips’ bug and those who’ve been following my blog would have seen my numerous looks with red lips. I’d shied away from red lips earlier  but I’d attribute by love for red lips to my discovery of my perfect red shade – Revlon Colorburst ‘Crimson’.

Here are a few of my favorite celebrity red lips looks  in no particular order-

1. Taylor Swift

Whether its the modern-fairytale tale look with her loose blonde curls or an elegant red carpet look , she pulls off red lips with such ease. Definitely one of my favorites!

How to wear this look : Use a shimmery silver- champagne eyeshadow all over lid especially in the inner corners, thick winged black liner on upper lash line, natural brown/flesh colored liner on waterline and  lots of mascara (or better, false eye lashes ) paired with rosy pink cheeks.

2. Diane Kruger

I love her natural eye and cheek makeup in this look.Pair this makeup with a pink lipstick/gloss for the day and glam it up with a red lippie for the evening.

How to wear this look : Shimmery champagne eye shadow all over lid and inner corners, thin black line of eye liner on upper lid, natural brown liner on water line, light brown eye shadow on outer half  of lower lash line and natural defined lashes paired with rosy pink blush.

3. Kim Kardashian

Now here’s one lady who likes it super-glam!  Bold eyes +bold lips = makeup disaster but I think she pulls it off really well. This look is definitely not for the faint hearted.

How to wear this look :

Look 1 : Intense blue -grey smokey eyes paired with earthy brown blush (Like Colorbar ‘Just Earth’)

Look 2: Thick black winged liner with long , dense eye lashes (false eye lashes a must here!) , white pencil on waterline and long, defined lower lashes paired with earthy pink blush.

4. Leighten Meester 

Another one who favors the red lips look- be it casual , red carpet elegant or disastrous , she has worn it all . I personally like her first casual look a lot- its red and yet it looks quite natural!

How to wear this look :

Look 1 & 2 : Subtle flesh colored frosty eye shadow all over lid and on lower lash line, defining mascara with a hint of earthy pink blush on the apples of the cheeks.

Look 3: I would never advise anyone to wear that look 😐

How to wear this look : Thick black slightly winged liner on upper lash line with lots of lengthening mascara paired with a hint of earthy pink on the apples of the cheeks. Any frost or satin finish eye shadow (optional)
