Bold lips added a splash of color at the recent SAG AWARDS 2014
Snapped on the red carpet were these beauties – and I wanted to share these pics with you. They really show that anyone can wear bold lips regardless of hair color or age! Just bring out the hidden celebrity in you – there’s one in all of us!
GS PRO TIP : – take the plunge and wear it with confidence.
Looking amazing at the age of 68, with chic silvery white hair, Helen Mirren rocks a bold red lip. Note that Helen’s stylist has dressed her in predominantly black – a sharp contrast to her hair and thus visually stunning (black & white)
Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss, here a brunette, is beautiful in a bold orange/red lip that sets off her blue eyes –
Amy Adams V classic at 39 with a structured “do” and bold apricot/red lips – here is another example of complimentary colors working harmoniously to create a striking look – oranges with blues.
GS PRO TIP : “when wearing a bold lip, keep eye makeup minimal – keep the look simple.
Apply a wash of “medium to light eyeshadow” over your lids from lashes to socket – a natural color is preferable as your lips are the star color of this look.
Eyes still need definition – apply some liner along the upper lashes, either thin or thick’n flicked. Lots of Mascara and the addition of false lashes are also desirable.
Don’t forget brows – they also contribute to defining your eye area. Enhance their shape with either a brow pencil or shadow”
