Although the gowns were rather spectacular last night, you’ve got to have flawless hair and makeup to finish the complete red carpet look. One of my favorites last night was on Parks and Recreation actress Rashida Jones, whose amazing makeup was created by Jo Strettell for Maybelline New York. Here’s how she created this glowing red carpet makeup look to compliment Rashida’s beautiful blush-colored gown:
Face: For an even complexion and a glowing, natural base, prep your skin with Maybelline New York Fit Me! Foundation in Honey Beige. Use Maybelline New York Fit Me! Blush in Medium Mauve, a dusty pink blush, on the apples of the cheeks. Finish by contouring and highlighting the face with a shimmery powder for a perfect red carpet glow.
Eyes: In order to get Rashida’s glamorous eyes, dot Maybelline New York Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black between areas of your top and bottom lashes. Create the illusion of denser lashes by then running the liner along the top and bottom lashlines. Set the gel liner and line the entire inner rim of the eye with Maybelline New York Eye Studio Master Drama Cream Pencil in Coal Commander. Apply a shimmery cream shadow to the inner corners of the eyes and as a highlight over the brow bone. Finish your dramatic eye look with several coats of Maybelline New York The Falsies by Volum’ Express Mascara in Blackest Black.
Lips: Get Rashida’s rich lip hue with glamorous shine with Maybelline New York Color Sensational High Shine Lipcolor in Dazzling Plum – the perfect deep vixen pout!
