How To – A Beauty Basic: Bold Brow and Red Lip



A bold red lip is a classic and nothing is more on trend right now than a bold brow. Combine the two and you are looking at one wearable beauty look.

The great thing is, this look is super simple to replicate. Make sure to start with a clean, clear base. If you are blessed with the skin of a baby angel you are good to go, otherwise for us mere mortals a dab of concealer, a slick of foundation and a subtle dusting of blush will set you up. Remember to keep your base simple (no need to contour like a Kardashian here) as we want the brows and lips to be the heroes.


Now you are ready for the finishing touches. The supremely talented makeup artist behind this look, Lilah Deguitre shares her secrets:


Brows: For this look I used a brow crayon (MAC eyebrow crayon in Fling) but you can use any brow product that works for you. If you are using a crayon draw in small, feathery strokes for a more natural look. If you comb your brows, brush them up not across, its more modern.


Eyes: I used a simple wash of nude shadow and lots of black mascara. We want to give the eyes definition but not let them steal the show.


Lips: To make this red lip last I used a liner first followed by a lipstick.  Line and fill in the lips (I used Ben Nye lip colour pencil in Cherry Pop) and then cover with a matt lipstick (I used MAC in Ruby Woo). Applying your lipstick with a lip brush allows for more precision.


So there you have it, a bold new look for your beauty repertoire. If you have any questions feel free to get in touch with Lilah here.
