Golden Globes Red Carpet Beauty Trend: Matching Your Lips to Your DressJan 12, 2014 @ 9:01 pm
Remember the tired rule that said matching your lipstick to your outfit was a beauty faux pas? According to Lupita Nyong’o, Emma Watson, Sandra Bullock, and Berenice Bejo, that rule was meant to be broken, as evidenced by their color-coordinated Golden Globes looks! Nyong’o, Watson, and Bejo each went the super-bold route by pairing a bright lipstick with their equally-bright getups, while Bullock matched a dusty rose tone to the pink shade from her colorblocked Prabal Gurung gown. Want to try out the trend? Make like each of the stars and go easy on the eye makeup — since the finished look is so striking, any more than a sweep of liner and minimal mascara could detract from the effect. If a full-on opaque color is too much for you, switch the finish for a sheer or glossy version of the same color. The airy finish allows you to wear the color as transparent or thick as you want, while the subtle hint of shine gives off a current vibe.
