Get The Look: Bold and Glamorous…

Happy Friday everyone! In case you missed it, yesterday I shared a soft and feminine makeup look that typically is my go-to during the week. Today’s look is bold and glamorous, not one I wear everyday, but perfect for a night out, a special event or anytime I’m wearing a red lip!

With this look, I like to use the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. I love this formula because it gives a little more coverage than a tinted moisturizer, but still doesn’t feel cakey. It’s soft and lightweight, almost blurring out any imperfections rather than masking them. The formula also has a slight sheen to it, which hydrates your face but doesn’t make it look or feel shiny.

Below is a list of all the products I used to get this look. Let me know if you have any questions about any of the products used, or any application questions.

Products:

Foundation – Sheer Glow Foundation by NARS

Bronzer – Give Me Sun by MAC

Highlighter – Radiant Touch by YSL 

Eye Shadow – Nude on Nude by Bobbi Brown (sold out, similar style here)

Eyeliner – ‘Perfectly Defined’ by Bobbi Brown

Mascara – Lash Domination by bareMinerals

Lip Pencil – Cherry by MAC

Lipstick – YSL Rouge Pur Couture #13

Gloss – AERIN

Brushes:

Foundation Brush – Chanel Blender Foundation Brush #7

Highlighter Brush – Bobbi Brown

Bronzer Brush – Bobbi Brown

*Tip: Most women steer clear of lip pencils, but to get a perfect line for a red lip, using a red liner is key! It’s the only way I can get a flawless line on my lip, otherwise it gets super uneven and bleeds over from my lips onto my skin.

  1. I love this glamorous look! A red lip is so classic and chic! I couldn’t agree more about your tip about using lip liners!! It makes so much of a difference to enhance the look and the wear of a lipstick. Love these make up posts!! Make up is such a passion of mine!
