Red Carpet Beauty Awards
BEST "WHAT RAIN?" WAVES
BIGGEST THREAT TO KATE MIDDLETON
Another star whose hair is magically unaffected by humidity, arrived at the awards with a bouncy, full-bodied blowout with loose curls at the end. Your move, Duchess.
The only thing we know to expect from on the red carpet is that she’ll do something unexpected. This time she played it safe with her dress, but experimented with her hair and makeup, going for a unique three-quarters up style (with diamond stars!) and a killer red lip color.
COOLEST CAT EYE
Minutes after hit the carpet, we were looking up eye liner tutorials on YouTube. The mom-to-be went for a dramatic winged look thanks to Revlon liquid liner (she’s a face of the brand) that matched her retro updo.
MOST BELIEVABLE #IWOKEUPLIKETHIS
We know that is wearing makeup because her makeup artist, Pati Dubroff for Dior Beauty, told us. But we can’t imagine it took very long to do, since the star looks like herself, only with a bit more lip gloss (Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Frisson to be exact).
PRETTIEST PARTY GIRL
At this point Lupita Nyong’o could paint a lighting bolt down her face and we’d still gush over her, but we love that her makeup artist, Nick Barose, chose elegant over extreme. He gave the actress rosy-pink cheeks using Chanel Le Blush Creme in Chamade and a bright lip with Rouge Allure in Mélodieuse.
LONGEST LASTING TREND
Just when we thought that the braid craze may be coming to an end, Maria Menounos arrived with this amazing do that reignited our love affair with red carpet plaits.
BEST ARGUMENT FOR EXTENSIONS
I was completely inspired by her amazing dress – and knew I had to create a longer, goddess effect with hair falling on the shoulder, says Kerry Washington’s stylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew of the actress’s cascading waves. The key tools: a HairArt H3000 Dryer and iTech Infrared 450 Flat Iron.
FRESHEST LIP COLOR
Nearly every star went with a nude lip, which is why we we’re so in love with Chrissy Teigen’s deep-pink color. Avon Global Celebrity Makeup Artist Lauren Andersen used Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Pure Orchid to complement the model’s floral-print gown.
