With the summer season in full swing comes the return of the hot makeup trend, red lips. This always classic and chic look is the perfect bright, bold statement. Whether its deep berry shades, bright reds or daring red-oranges, this pop of color is sure to freshen your beauty routine up during the sizzling heat of the summer months.
Actress Amber Heard, star of Magic Mike XXL, has been seen rocking this trend on the red carpet for the movie’s Amsterdam premier. Her sultry, red lip look was created by celebrity makeup artist, Melanie Inglessis for MAKE UP FOR EVER. To craft this “color of the summer” lip, Melanie used amazing MAKE UP FOR EVER products and kept the lip look perfect for summer, by pairing it with bronzed skin and a simple, yet smoldering eye.
Tips/Techniques: “I wanted to give Amber a classic red lip to compliment the simple sexiness of her black, Cushnie et Ochs dress. To apply, I first used the long lasting Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Liner Pencil in #8C True Red to define and accentuate the shape of her lips as well as prevent bleeding of her lipstick color. Next I applied the Rouge Artist Intense #8 Matte Bright Red using the MAKE UP FOR EVER Artisan Brush #304 Lip Brush which created a bright, bold statement lip.
