Get The Look: Red Carpet Glamour

Text by Aparrna Gupta

This season slip out of the routine and dress your face with imagination. Verve gets inspired from Bollywood’s leading ladies…

On-screen inspiration
Sonam Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Freida Pinto as they walked the red carpet for Cannes Film Festival 2014.

Signature style
Lips defined in bold shades of red or wine, long ‘mascaraed’ lashes, with hair immaculately styled whether held high or let down.

What this face says
Though a deceptively simple look, it commands attention and demands perfection. This look spells elegance, sophistication and confidence. There is an air of authority around this woman — she is sexy and she knows it.

How-to get this look
To get a colour that lasts all evening, define the natural shape of your mouth with a deep crimson-coloured lip pencil, and use it to fill the entire area. “This will work as a primer for the lipstick and will keep the lipstick on longer. Top this with a crimson lipstick. Curl the lashes with an eyelash curler and apply two coats of volumising mascara from root to tip in zigzag movements to give a voluptuous effect,” advises Charmaine Rao Soares, make-up trainer for Guerlain and Shiseido in India.
