At last night’s 6th Annual Style Awards, Lauren contrasted an ultra-feminine look with a rock twist, from her floral bubble dress paired with studded punk pumps to her braided half-up-do and soft curls contrasted with a hot pink lip and black liquid liner, all in honor of her stylist Britt Bardo, to whom she presented the Style Star Award. I am obsessed with mixing things up because overly girlie comes off a little cutesy, while overly punk comes off. Well, just that.
To create the look, I first filled in her entire lip with Kissink Lip Tintmarker in Berry Bitten, a lip stain favorite of ours that lasts all night yet isn’t dry or flaky. Then I added a coat of Lip Exotics Lip Lacquer Hook Up in Pop for a luscious wet look with a huge color impact.
For her cheeks, I applied Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Cheeky, a perfect true pink cream blush, on the apples of her cheeks then dusted above her cheekbones in Twinklebelle (Rose), a shimmery pearlized powder that I also used on her collar bone and shoulders. Finally, to keep all of the emphasis on her winged-out cat eyes (Get In Line Liquid Liner Hook Up in Painted Black), I left her lower lash line undefined, except for a coat of Make It Big Mascara in Raven.
