Try It This Week: Hailee Steinfeld’s Deep Plum LipstickSep 15, 2013 @ 6:26 pm
Hailee Steinfeld served as a modern muse at Estee Lauder’s party on Thursday night, and her role continues — the vampy lip color she wore is giving us serious makeup inspiration! “We went for a more-current silent film star look with burgundy stained lips, pink cheeks, and a plum smoky eye,” said her makeup artist Nick Barose. “I chose Estee Lauder’s Plum Fizz ($26; esteelauder.com), a sheer, creamy burgundy color.” Because the color is already dark, Barose recommends skipping the lip liner and blurring out the edges of the lip instead. A mis-matched liner can create a severe, contrasting effect, so we recommend tracing the shape of your lips with a concealer afterward to clean up any unexpected smudges. “Apply the color directly from the tube, add extra in the center of the lips, then blot it with your pinky,” Barose added. He finished the look with a sweep of lavender eye shadow, but since the lip makes a big enough statement on its own, you can even opt to wear it solo.
