Celebrities whipped out bold metallics and bright pops of colour on the red carpet this week, and we couldn’t be more excited. We take this as the first official hint that lush, shimmery, jewel-toned winter makeup is just around the corner. Keep scrolling for nine seriously inspiring makeup looks!
Who says the colder season is all about frosty hues? Jessica Alba channeled her inner bronze goddess at the Baby2Baby gala presented by Tiffany Co., thanks to makeup artist Monika Blunder and hairstylist Giannandrea. Blunder says she used MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish Natural ($32) in Medium on Alba’s T-zone, then highlighted and contoured her face with Lorac’s TANtalizer Highlighter & Matte Bronzer Duo ($32).
No one pulls off icy eye shadow quite like Kristen Stewart. The actress rocked a tousled ‘do that hairstylist Giannandrea dubbed “rocker chic” and blue-tinged metallic eye shadow at the screening of Still Alice in Hollywood.
“With her stunning red Oscar de la Renta dress, we went for a modern-day Sofia Loren look with dramatic dark liquid liner and soft, warm cheeks and lips,” makeup artist Nick Barose explains. He used Tom Ford’s Eye Defining Liquid Eye Liner ($55) in Deeper to create the perfect cat-eye, and the brand’s Lip Color Sheer ($50) in Summer Fling on Mbatha-Raw’s lips.
The young actress showed up at The Homesman premiere with freshly chopped locks and shimmery violet eye shadow, thanks to makeup artist Stephen Sollitto and hairstylist Mara Roszak. Sollitto used L’Oréal Paris’ Infallible Eye Shadow ($8) in Smoldering Plum to deepen her smoky eye, while Roszak prepped her damp strands with the brand’s Advanced Hairstyle Curve It Elastic Curl Mousse ($5) to give her waves a boost before blow-drying.
A deep mulberry lip, sleek side part, and candlelit skin? To say we’re obsessed with Dunn’s makeup look at the EMAs would be an understatement. We’re filing this look under “must copy” now.
We could stare at Knightley’s perfectly carved cheekbones all day, especially when the accompanying rose-themed makeup look is this stunning.
