Margot Robbie and Lily Collins are a study in opposites, and Jessica Alba is glamorous and glowing. Get your wedding beauty inspiration from these red carpet stars.
Margot Robbie at the premiere of ‘The Legend of Tarzan’: If it’s an understated makeup look you’re seeking for your big day, Margot Robbie is the perfect red carpet inspo. Start with a full coverage, matte finish makeup blended into the skin with a wet makeup sponge. Accent your cheekbones with a pink blush, and add a touch of highlighter to the apples of the cheeks and the tip of the nose. Brush your brows up and out, and fill in any sparse places. Tightline the upper lashes with a brown eyeliner and use a rose gold-colored eyeshadow (if you don’t have the perfect shade, you can blend your own using a light brown and pink shadow) from the lashes to the brow. Smudge the same eyeshadow under the lower lashes and swipe on a coat or two of mascara. Line and shade your lips with a mauve lipliner and lipstick (using the liner on your lips before the lipstick ensures a richly pigmented color, as well as provides staying power), and you’re done.
Lily Collins at Sony Pictures Television’s screening of Amazon pilots: For a look that is edgy yet apropos for a summer bride, mimic Lily Collins. Perfect your complexion with a full coverage foundation and concealer, and warm up the cheeks with a coral blush. Shape and fill the brows, so that they are well defined and provide a strong ‘anchor’ for the eyes. Tightline the upper lashes and line the lower with a black kohl pencil and create a smokey eye using a dark glittery gray shadow. Make sure you apply a white shadow to the inner corners of the eyes and use several coats of mascara to keep the look feminine. On the lips, swipe a peachy-pearl lip gloss, and you’re done.
Jessica Alba at the premiere of ‘Seoul Searching’: No one does ‘glowing’ quite like Jessica Alba, and to recreate this look, start with the foundation of your choice. Next apply shimmery bronzer in the hollows of the cheeks and then get glowing: Highlight the apples of the cheeks, down the center of the face and around the temples, and don’t be shy! This look requires plenty of shine. Fill in your brows so they look nice and full but still natural. Next, line the eyes with a black eyeliner and apply a strip of false lashes. Use copper eyeshadow on the upper lid and below the lower lash line, and coat the lashes with mascara. Choose the perfect shade of red for your coloring (Jessica’s has blue undertones) and line the lips, followed by a high shine lipstick — a liquid lipstick formula would work well-to finish the high glamour look.
