Believe it or not, red carpet beauty is attainable.
Still doubtful? We would be too…if it hadn’t been for celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbow.
The beauty guru stopped by the E! studios to show us how to translate a red carpet look to everyday wear.
“There are definitely tips and tricks that I use for the red carpet that can help women…go out feeling great—no matter what,” Tina said
She started off by exfoliating the model’s skin. Removing dead skin cells creates a smoother base. She then used Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream to help tone and firm the skin. Because it offers the skin a nice glow and features anti-aging properties, it’s great for photo-worthy moments. Hello, high resolution!
Had a rough night before? Don’t sweat it. Dip your fingers into ice water and massage puffy areas in circular motions. Getting that blood circulation going will reduce swelling.
Once the model’s skin was ready to be painted, Tina opted for a red carpet staple—the smokey eye. She started with intense colors around the lash line. Like skin and its natural glow, the makeup maven added a bit of shimmer to the look. She then used her fingers—her most used tool—to blend. Using your fingers to smudge your makeup will give you that sultry, day-after look—without the hangover.
Contour with a matte shading product with an angled brush to really emphasize your bone structure and finish the look off with a nude lip. Voilà!
“I think my motivation is always to bring out their best beauty and make them look their most beautiful and feel incredible,” Tina concluded.
