Stand-Out Red Carpet Trends from the 2009 MTV Movie Awards
MAX Factor sponsored a Movie Award Show viewing party last weekend and makeup artist Jake Bailey shared some of his thoughts on the trends that were present on the red carpet: "people were making bold but simple choices with their makeup looks", he said.
"there were two standout looks i saw walk the carpet: a smokey, dramatic eye against a glowing, clean complexion paired with a nude lip for an effortless look, and quite a few girls were rockin' a bright lip, some with a classic inspiration and others edgy and fun- i loved it!"
stars, including Leighton Meester, Hayden Panettiere, Miley Cyrus and Anna Farris, all looked beautiful with a smokey eye and nude lip. for a variation on the classic smokey eye, Jake suggests to try doing the look with color for a summery, modern twist:
"a lighter green shade paired with aubergine is a beautiful combination while navy blue brings a hint of color to the traditional smokey eye look. choosing a shade with a little shimmer helps to keep it from getting too dark, and always top off any smokey eye with two coats of dark black mascara – my go-to is MAX Factor's 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper."
"for this season, bright bold lips are a great look that anyone can wear and we saw it all over the MTV red carpet on Cameron Diaz, Ashley Greene, Lauren Conrad and the look i created for Lo Bosworth! a simple eye and flawless skin is always a great pairing with a bold lip color – sometimes all you need is a really great lip!"
"to do this stick with light and bright shades for the season to keep the look fresh-- my favorites from MAX Factor's Vivid Impact Lipcolor line are Sweet Tart, Rose Rage and Ms. Terious.
both of these red carpet looks work well for summer, so have fun and be fabulous!
