Love this Look: Amber Heard’s Classic Red Lip!

Hello everyone! I am working on getting back into the the swing of things with blogging! I was looking online at 2014 celebrity makeup looks and one that stood out to me was Amber Heard’s makeup at the 2014 Art of Elysium Heaven Gala. She nailed the “Classic Hollywood Red Lip Look”!

Here are the reasons why this look worked on her:
  • She did not overpower her statement lips with dark eye makeup! The best way to pull off this look is to keep the eyes natural. I’m not saying don’t put eye makeup on; by all means do so but just stick to neutral shadows, thin eyeliner, & a few coats of mascara on your top lashes.
  • Her red lips are done perfectly. They are lined well and the red extends all the way to the edge of her lips.
  1. TIP: It will look better & make you feel better too if you brush your teeth with whitening toothpaste before you go out with red lips!
  2. TIP: For smooth lips, exfoliate with either a sugar scrub on your finger or on a toothbrush. Afterwards, apply a lip balm and then the red color.
  • Her skin is flawless! There is not one imperfection showing and her skin is glowing as well. You can see that they have applied light peach blush as well as a highlight above her cheek bones. Makes for a glamorous look!


I hope these reasons and tips help you achieve your own perfect “red lips” look. I personally love this recurring trend and think it’s a classic.

Trend to Try: Mulberry Lips!

 

In the last month, I’ve really been loving darker lip colors for the Fall and Winter! Mulberry lips are a recent trend that has been spotted on celebrities and the runway! I would describe Mulberry as being a rich, dark burgundy color. So this holiday season, if red is too bright of a color for you, then go for the deeper, more sophisticated look with Mulberry lips!

Trend to Try: Lace!

A trend that I have definitely noticed at school recently is lace. Whether it is on girls’ sweater or their tights, it is surely becoming popular. Lace just adds an attention-grabbing, feminine touch to any outfit. I personally love it because it makes me feel bold and edgy. If you are not yet comfortable with wearing lace pieces, you could start small with things such as lace purses, jewelry, or shoes. Several celebrities are also really liking the lace trend. The celebrities featured in the photos below are Taylor Swift, Taylor Momsen, Dakota Fanning, Ashley Greene, and Lauren Conrad.
