Get the Look: Lauren Conrad's Ruby Pout
Seen here at last night’s Avon Hope Honors Gala, Lauren Conrad looks both beautiful and sophisticated in retro, '40s-inspired makeup.
Below, celebrity makeup artist Amy Nadine shares her secrets for creating Lauren's latest red carpet look:
On the Face
“For a perfectly polished complexion, I evened out Lauren’s skin tone with Mark Powder Buff Natural Skin Foundation (in Natural), for a super-velvety finish. To emphasize the delicate contours of her face, I applied Mark Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder starting in the hollow of her cheeks, then directly under her cheekbones, up to her temples, across her hairline and under her jaw line. I then swirled their Good Glowing Custom Pick Powder Blush (in Star Glo) on the apples of her cheeks for a subtle rosy glow.”
For the Eyes
“Lauren loves her signature winged-out liquid liner look, which I amped up by drawing Mark Get In Line Hook Up Liquid Waterproof Eyeliner a little thicker in the outer corners of her eyes. I then coated her lashes in Mark Make It Big Lash Plumping Mascara for thickness and length and added individual lashes to complete the look.”
On the Lips
“I gave Lauren a classic Old Hollywood pout with Mark Dew Drenched Moisturlicious Lip Color (in Wave), a true red that is warm enough to look gorgeous on everyone. To properly set the color to last all evening, I dipped a cotton swab in Mark Matte-nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder and carefully traced the outer rims of the lips. For that final touch of extra impact and depth, I added a dab of Mark Belle of the Ball Lip Balm (in Sheer Red) in the center of the lips with my finger.”
