Olivia Wilde rocks a unique black eyeliner technique, Gina Rodriguez makes bright orange evening-appropriate and Sarah Hyland testifies a little color can go a long way. All in the red carpet beauty looks we loved this week.
Olivia Wilde at ELLE’s 6th Annual Women in Television Dinner: If you’re looking for a formal makeup look for your black tie wedding, then let Olivia Wilde’s bold eye inspire you. Using a kohl formula to get a dark, soft line, go heavy from the mid eye to the outer corners, however leave the inner corners bare. This method adds plenty of drama, nonetheless, doesn’t close off the eyes, hence they still look wide and bright. Perfectly highlighted contours and a glossy nude lip make for a radiant, bridal-worthy look.
Gina Rodriguez at Critics’ Choice Awards: When most people think of a bold, bright lip, they automatically think red, but that classic option isn’t the only way to go. Take a cue from Gina Rodriguez and go with a bright orange, instead—it’s just as formal, and delivers a more modern effect. And of course a statement lip means keeping everything else subtler, such as Gina’s flushed coral cheeks, lush lashes on the top only and a simple updo with a few face-framing pieces left loose.
Sarah Hyland at ELLE’s 6th Annual Women in Television Dinner: You don’t have to be afraid of color, brides! Just like you’ve embraced a pop of color in your shoes, colorful makeup is another way to add fun to your Big Day look. Sarah Hyland has nailed this season’s blue eyeshadow trend and is providing major inspiration for spring and summer brides. Radiant skin, a slight flush to the cheeks, shimmering pink lips and well-groomed eyebrows complete a totally swoon-worthy look. And the high bun? The icing on the cake.
