“The key to a flawless red carpet red lip is staying power,” shared Physicians Formula’s Celebrity Makeup Artist, Joanna Schlip. “The color needs to last from the moment they arrive on the red carpet to the after party.”
From gowns to manis to lip colors, red was one of the hottest colors at the 2014 Golden Globes. Schlip, who worked with Betsy Brandt from AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” let Hamptons.com in on her tips for a red carpet-worthy red lip.
How To Achieve The Look:
1. First, choose the shade of red that best flatters your skin tone. Fairer complexions, like “New Girl” star Zooey Deschanel and Taylor Swift, should veer towards blue-based reds. Warmer, medium tones, like “American Hustle” actress Jennifer Lawrence should opt for bold, brick reds. Deeper complexions like “12 Years a Slave” star Lupita Nyong’o should experiment with bright, orange-based red hues.
2. Then exfoliate lips to remove any dry, dead skin which can be exaggerated with red shades (and HD technology!).
3. Next, apply a stain to the lips for the ultimate staying power. Try Physicians Formula Sexy Booster Sexy Glow Glossy Stain in Red. The alluring gloss-stain-hybrid formula delivers richly pigmented color that lasts up to 12 hours.
4. Once the stain has set, apply a lipstick in the same red shade on top to lock in color staying power. By layering the products, color will stay put through hours of eating, drinking, and after-party fun.
