Leave it to Cara Delevingne to see issues slightly differently, giving us a velvet-finish look—raisin puce lips, sculpted cheeks, these brows—at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards. At Jason Wu (shown), makeup artist Yadim utilized two coats of crimson liquid lipstick—no basis, no mascara—then sent the models on their way. To get the look, try Maybelline New York ColorBlur by Lip Studio in Cherry Cherry Bang Bang. Once her all matte every thing, 90s-impressed seems captured attention in 2015, the popularity of her make-up appears — notably her matte lip look — solely rose.
Curl your lashes and apply black mascara (N’Diaye likes L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga). Then swipe on a rich burgundy lipstick (we love Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Vampira). As for the cheeks, add a bit of definition—however not a ton of colour—with a pink-brown blush. Because summer season too often summer time interprets to a shiny T-zone and melty lip colour, makeup artists and Instagram vloggers alike are all about sandbagging. The method (named after precise burlap sandbags) entails caking on free powder beneath the eyes and across the backside edges of the lips to sop up grease for a matte, ultra-easy finish.
Blame it on mall rats of the ‘90s, but for many years frosty make-up—and particularly lip gloss—was thought-about tacky. Thank you, Beyoncé, for many issues—however in this second, for upending that cliché with an iced peony pout and gilded lids. With a hint of brown, pink shadow turns into sultry, elegant, and supremely flattering. Sticking to matte powder shadows, make-up artist Kate Lee prepped Nicola Peltz’s eyes with a light-weight tan shadow.
