Believe it or not, today we have a guest post from Sue Devitt! She’s an extremely well known makeup artist who just happens to have her own cult favorite line of make up. I love her well edited line, which focuses more on beauty and nature than shocking with a bright orange eye shadow. This is why she’s the secret weapon of so many in Hollywood.
Read on as she breaks down the hottest red carpet trends and offers her secrets on how to look red carpet chic.
Trend: Rich Berry Pout
For those that want to forgo the ever popular nude lip or even the trendy pink pout, stars have been trying out the bright lip in a variety of berry shades. If you want an ultra-glamorous look use a glossy, deep hue like a rich berry lip stain paired with minimal eye makeup. For a retro look try a matte take on the berry lip. Or if you want a more balanced makeup look opt for a slightly lighter shade of berry on the lips so you can still add a bit of smokiness to the eyes, as lips weren’t the only area many celebrities have added brightness, varying shades of jewel tones graced many famous lids on the red carpet as well.
Trend: Understated Stunner
Keeping your look understated and refined is always a glamorous option. This polished look is sure to be seen on the red carpet this season and is easily transitioned into every day inspiration. To add a little edge to your look I like a hint of shimmer on the apples of the cheeks. After applying your usual powder blush, take your fingertip and just dab a bit on – you’ll instantly look refreshed and glowing. To achieve the classic nude lip, that is always a favorite at red carpet events, buff in a nude shade of lip liner, then layer on a sheer or neutral gloss to the middle of your bottom lip for texture. The great thing about this look is your eyes can either be really soft and bare, or you can go the other extreme and pair the pale lips with a sexy, smoky eye, just remember for either to highlight under the brow bone for extra intensity.
