Red Carpet Beauty Report: Movie Premiere Mayhem!

I was shocked and awed at the images from the red carpets at the London Snow White and the Huntsman and Los Angeles What to Expect When You’re Expecting premieres.  Shock came from the horror show of Jennifer Lopez’s homely hair and eye-closing makeup, and awe hit when I saw the perfection of Kristen Stewart’s metallic smoked eye and the gold chains that were intertwined into her updo.



Face: After priming, blend a creamy liquid foundation like AMOREPACIFIC ‘Time Response Skin Renewal’ Foundation SPF 18  into your skin. Then apply a pinky blush like the legendary NARS Orgasm Blush  from the apple of your cheeks to your temples.

Eyes: Cover the entire lip with a neutral shadow. Then, blend a light to medium brown shadow into your crease.  Next use a waterproof black eyeliner pencil like SEPHORA COLLECTION Kohl Waterproof Eyeliner   to create a thick black line along the upper lash line, and complete the look with multiple coats of mascara.

Eyebrows: Use either an eyebrow pencil or eyeliner pencil (works just as well) in a color that is a shade lighter than your natural hair and make small lines (resembling eyebrow hair) throughout your eyebrows. Then set with a colorless eyebrow gel like Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel  or spray hairspray on an eyebrow brush.

Lips: Use a lip brush to apply a creamy mauve lipstick like Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter  in Sugar Plum that will drop a lot of pigment without looking dramatic.

Voila! Your gorg!

Chic flick vs. chic flick,  I’ll take Snow White and the Huntsman any day of the week, not only because the leading ladies smoldered on the red carpet but let’s face it  What to Expect What You’re Expecting is the kind of movie I wouldn’t even watch on a plane.
