Since the days of Marilyn Monroe’s iconic smoking hot bombshell look, women everywhere have followed suit. Red siren lips and lashings of mascara have never gone out of style, and today we can see famous A-listers such as Scarlett Johansson loving the sophisticated Hollywood glamour. Follow these steps to adopt the gorgeous killer red lips and dark, smoky eyes.
1.Foundation On And Conceal Away
Tone and moisturise as usual, and then apply your foundation and some light-reflecting concealer. We love Liz Earle Colour Light reflecting Concealer, (£15.50). which bounces off light beautifully. Once you have applied this, simply brush some foundation down the centre of your face and across your forehead to create a perfectly flawless finish.
2.Eyebrows, Eyelashes, And Eye Shadow
Using an eyebrow pencil, fill in any sparse areas, creating your definitive shape. Next, using a dark coloured eye shadow pen, sweep across your eyelids and then smudge a little under your eye. Eye shadow pens are great to use when time is of the essence. We are loving Stargazer’s eye shadow pens.
Once this is complete, add your eyeliner on both your lower and upper lids, making sure your add a filled in flick at the outer corners for maximum effect.
Lastly, create a luscious curl with a pair of eyelash curlers, and then apply lashings and lashings of mascara!
3.Killer Red Lips
The final touch to the epic Hollywood style is the lips. First use a lip pencil to outline, and then brush on a glamorous red lipstick, and a gloss to finish. Matte lipstick is huge this season, so go for a gorgeous bold red lipstick like M.A.C’s retro ‘Relentlessly Red,’ priced at £15.50.
4.Blusher and Extra Highlighter
Once your makeup is on, reach for some rosy pink blusher and sweep above the hollows of either cheek and around the eye in an upwards semi-circle motion. Then, dot a little highlighter over the same area for added effect. There you have it – Hollywood Glamour to be proud of.
