Nothing says glam like a bold red lip, especially for the holiday season. In the new film Some Velvet Morning, actress Alice Eve pulls off a perfect red pout—and for the entire film no less! Makeup artist Jessica Jade Jacob created this look by first finding the perfect lip stain in Passion Fruit Crush by Stila, “I wanted to create an incandescent red for the lip look. I wanted the lips to glow and really pop against the neutral backdrop of Velvet’s apartment,” she told InStyle.com. The next step was picking a true coral red lip pencil by Bite Beauty called Zinfindel, “most reds have a blue or purple undertone to them, but a red with a coral tone gives the lips a more radiant appearance. By layering a stain under a lip pencil, you can create a more unique and more custom color.”
Not only is this look unique, but so is Some Velvet Morning, which chronicles the dark conversations that erupt when Stanley Tucci arrives unannounced at his former mistress’ doorstep. Alice Eve’s red lip also ends up complimenting her custom dress designed by costume designer Katherine Roth, and proves that her character may not be exactly what she seems. Make sure to catch Some Velvet Morning as it hits limited theaters today, December 13.
