I think Lily Collins has the perfect face for any type of look but this year has been really astonishing in the Golden Globes red carpet: everything was great, her makeup, her dress and her hair matched with perfection, looking like a real modern princess.
Last Sunday she wore a Lâncome total look in rosy matte eyeshadows and matte red lips created by her makeup artist Fiona Stiles. What surprised me was that Stiles created the eyeshadow tone using pale blushed color lip liner as a base and a petal blush to intesify the color! For the perfect matte lipstick shade that would match Lily’s dress she chose Lâncome l’Absolu Rouge in Souvenir, after trying several shades together with the artist.
I was so in love with this look that inspired me to create a similar look but with a daily twist. Instead I decided to use more neutral colors such as brownish pink tones. Here you have the result:
Obviously it is quite different as I don’t attend to red carpet events, maybe I go to the movies once per week! To me would be strange to wear very dramatic makeup on a Sunday afternoon so I prefer this natural approach for my look. For the eyeshadow I’ve mixed and blended Strawberry and Caramel tone with a little bit of Cherry from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. For my cheeks I decided to use Sleek blush in Flushed (a shade that I totally love), and for the lips I picked Kat von D Everlasting lipstick in Double Dare, a brownish pink tone perfect for a day makeup. These days I’ve been having problems with some spots so I chose Fit me matte foundation in Buff Beige by Maybelline applied with my beige Beuty blender. I concealed my under eyes with Nars Radiant Concealer in Vanilla and Laura Mercier Loose Setting powder. For the final touch, as usual, I’ve used my Better than Sex Too Faced mascara. Hope you like it!
