How to: Recreate Red Carpet Glamour Make-up

In this Look book we are focusing on Red Carpet Glamour and the wonderful world of show business. With the awards season kicking off with the Emmy’s recently, I was inspired and thought it appropriate to bring you a my favourite unique red carpet looks from Tinseltown.

What really grabbed my attention was the use of bold lip colour and deep black kohl eyeliner to really create dramatic effect, such as the likes of Ginnifer Goodwin, January Jones, Kat Dennings and Jessica Pare.


To achieve this look you will need: A flawless base from your foundation or powder, try  Benefit’s Oxygen Wow foundation or a cream base such as  RMK Gel Emulsion. Follow this with a setting powder to maintain a slight sheen but making sure you are not shiny.

The key to this look is making sure you have a rich black liquid eyeliner like Urban Decay or pencil eyeliner from Bare Minerals. Follow the lash line and then extend as far as you want to go, creating a flick of a more triangular shape.

This paired with a neutral base shade of eye shadow creates a dramatic eye; now you can either pair this with a nude lip and let the eyes do the talking, or if you are going for all out glamour, pair it with a bold lipstick such as All For Eve red Lipstick ensuring you look classic and feel unique. Carefully apply to the lips, blot with a tissue and then re-apply for a great finish, adding a touch of clear gloss if you wish for a more shimmering appearance.

That’s it, now you have your eyes and mouth sorted, add some bronzer or blusher depending on your colourings and away you go. Red Hot Glamour to dazzle the world with!
