We reveal the tricks and must-have products behind the prettiest hair and makeup looks on the red carpet, and they are ……. oh so simple!
Who: Kendall Jenner
Look: Modern ’90s Lip
Kendall Jenner and her army of model trend-setters have successfully brought back the ’90s in the best way possible (blunt haircuts, tiny sunglasses, etc.).
But it’s the lipstick she chose for the Valerian film premiere that convinced us that a throwback beauty look doesn’t have to be so intimidating. This lipstick is the perfect combination of pink and brown-nude, pair it with lots of black lashes and a little cheek contour for a look that would be considered timeless in both 1997 and 2017.
Who: Bella Hadid
Look: Liner and Lip Gloss
Bella Hadid stepped out at the launch party for Bulgari’s fragrance wearing a beauty look we’re all capable of doing ourselves. How perfect!
All it takes is a liquid eyeliner and lip gloss or balm to get this look. As the face of Dior beauty, Hadid is a noted fan of the brand’s Dior Addict Glow Color Awakening Lip Balm, a hydrating, subtly tinted formula that leaves behind a slick shine. To get a mini cat-eye flick like Hadid, try using a liquid formula with a really fine marker tip. Start the line about half-way across your lid, getting gradually thicker as you go. A flick angled high up toward the temples will make your whole face look lifted.
Who: Gigi Hadid
What: Matte Red Lipstick
Red lipstick can dress anything up—even a denim jacket, just ask Gigi Hadid! The pairing of her lip shade and sleek low ponytail upgraded her outfit from casual wear to supermodel street style, and we loved it. It also gave us a new idea for when we’re stuck in a beauty rut. Pick one color and just run with it!
Editor’s Pick: Lipstick Queen Saint Lipstick – Scarlet Red
Who: Emily Ratajkowski
What: Glowing Summer Skin
Makeup artist Hung Vanngo posted this image of Emily Ratajkowski on Instagram with a genius tip for recreating her look.
To get her bronze summer glow, Vanngo suggested mixing one or two drops of Highlighter (a liquid formula) in with your sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher), moisturiser, or primer—then applying it all-over. It leaves your skin looking luminous and fresh from top to bottom rather than artfully highlighted just on your cheekbones.
Editor’s Pick: Chantecaille Liquid Lumiere – Sheen
What: Pretty in Pink
Zendaya has that unique quality, basically she can wear anything and make it look perfect every time! Why would an all-pink ensemble and beauty look be an exception?
This gorgeous celebrity mixed fruity pink nail polish with a sheer pink lip gloss, red-pink eyeshadow, and a baby-pink dress. Her wash of eyeshadow is the trend of the moment, and the colour is easier to wear that you might think. Just keep the pigment focused on your upper lid only. Finish the look with coats of black mascara and stick to a warm tones for the rest of the look.
Who: Jennifer Lawrence
What: The Hair Flip
If Jennifer Lawrence’s hair looks different to you, that’s because a.) it’s longer and b.) she’s back to her classic beige-blonde, oh and the her hair flip, of course!
If you’re looking for the easiest hair change in the world, all you have to do is flip your part. It is that simple! Toss your hair over to the opposite side to create instant volume at your part—it’s an instant hair makeover. A little dry shampoo will keep your hair looking big while adding some volume and texture.
Editor’s Pick: Bumble and Bumble Bb. Pret-a-Powder
Who: Chanel Iman
What: Golden Highlighter
Supermodel Chanel Iman upgraded an otherwise basic beauty look—black eyeliner, nude lipstick—to something so much more!
Iman swept a champagne-gold highlighter not only across her cheekbones but also along the inner corner of both eyes and across her lids. The touch of gold brightens her entire look but but doesn’t read as too bold or to made up.
Editor’s Pick: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Topaz
Who: Ashley Graham
What: Golden Lids
Ever since we saw this picture of Ashley Graham on Instagram—we haven’t stopped thinking about her eyeshadow! Go for a high-impact pigment and shimmery gold eyeshadow and just press and pat onto the lid, that’s it!
