Instyle: You Can Do Red Lips!

You Can Do: Red Lips
Like the perfect leopard-print stiletto, an amazing red lipstick can transform even the most basic black dress into something startlingly chic. Case in point: Despite some stiff competition from her ambitious right leg, Angelina Jolie’s red lips won us over at the Oscars.

The Basic Tips
• Ditch the chapped lips! For a pitch-perfect crimson like Rihanna’s, exfoliate lips with a wet washcloth, followed by a dab of lip balm.
• Fill in with a liner that matches the natural color of your lips—not the lipstick.
• Apply color with a tiny brush, starting at the center of your mouth and blending outward.

The Basic Products
• Available in four versatile shades, The Nude Liner by Smashbox ($17 each; sephora.com) is easy to blend, and lasts for hours.
• A blue-based crimson like MAC’s Red ($15; maccosmetics.com) brightens up your smile, and neutralizes any discoloration on your teeth with its cool undertones.
• MAC’s 318 Retractable Lip Brush ($23; maccosmetics.com) creates a seamless finish, and thanks to its compact size, is perfect for touch-ups on the go.

I’m scared it will look too harsh.
If a full-on red is too much commitment for you, try out a lip stain instead like YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in Orange de Chine ($32; yslbeautyus.com). Just dab a bit of it on the inside center of your lips, then smack them together. The effect is subtle, rosy, and youthful—like you’ve just finished a cherry Popsicle.

What eye makeup do I pair with it?
Although a statement lip works best with minimal eye makeup, that doesn’t mean you have to swear off shadows altogether. Unless you want to channel an ’80s revival, steer clear of bright shades, and stick to sheer neutrals

Get The Look: Claire Danes Old Hollywood Glamour at the 64th Annual Emmy’s

Claire Danes at the 64th Primetime Emmys
Look by: Matin Maulawizada, Global Artistry Director for Laura Mercier

Matin describes his inspiration for Claire’s look as a “casual nod to old Hollywood glamour.”

EYES: Claire’s smoky, seductive eyes were the focal point of the look.

· Matin used Laura Mercier Eye Pencil in Extreme Black ($20) to define Claire’s eyes.

· He then heavily lined her eyes using Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil in Black Gold ($20). The pencil’s golden base colour complemented the star’s electric yellow dress.

· Matin completed the dramatic look by applying Laura Mercier Metallic Crème Eye Colour in Burnished Copper ($22) and Laura Mercier Sequin Eye Colour in Black Ice ($22) to Claire’s lids.

LIPS: Nude lips modernized the glamorous look.

· Matin layered Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Praline ($20) and Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Angelic ($26) to achieve Claire’s soft, matte lip colour.

FACE: Matin chose to enhance the expecting star’s natural glow and created a “healthy flush using bright pink blush.”

· To achieve a flawless face, Matin first applied Laura Mercier Moisture Suprême Foundation in Sunny Beige ($43).

· He then covered imperfections using Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-3 ($30).

· Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Oleander ($22) was then heavily applied to Claire’s cheeks.

· The look was set with Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder in Translucent ($34).


Get The Look: Cat Deeley at the 64th Annual Emmy Awards.


So You Think You Can Dance” host Cat Deeley wowed the crowd when she stepped onto the red carpet tonight at the 64th annual Emmy Awards. Makeup Artist Amy Strozzi was the visionary behind the nominated host’s stunning beauty look. Amy put the focus on Cat’s eyes, layering a wet coffee shadow over a blend of multiple mocha shades for a modern take on the classic smokey eye. Amy then upped the drama by smudging a dark brown liner on both top and bottom lashes and swiping black mascara on lashes for the finishing touch.

To offset the intensity of the eyes, Amy kept the rest of Cat’s face simple: she gave Cat her signature sunkissed glow using Glow Powder Bronzer and added a rosy flush of color on Cat’s cheekbones using True Color Blush. Amy finally opted to give Cat a nude lip, which she achieved by applying a neutral lip liner over the entire lip and then swiping a matching lipstick.
