Last night, the 73rd Venice Film Festival took off with the opening of the Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone Musical La La Land. The photo call for the film brought the beautiful Emma Stone to the forefront, giving us some major beauty inspiration for redheaded gals. For the event, the actress wore a Victorian-style green and pink floral mini dress with bell sleeves and a high neck.
She complimented the risqué colours with a pair of orange suede pumps that resembled her fiery red locks. What really caught our eye? Emma's unique braided up-do and warm makeup look that perfectly complimented her pale complexion and red hair colour.
So, if you're a red head looking for some beauty inspiration (or a non read head who just loves this look), read on to find out how she did it!
If you're a redhead, you probably have a pale complexion to match. That's why Emma's golden makeup look is perfect. The orange tones in her eye shadow and on her cheeks both compliment her beautiful red hair, and warm up her skin tone for one flawless look.
To achieve this look, start by unifying your base with a cushion foundation. This will keep your skin looking natural while still providing coverage for those uneven or red spots. Colour correcting concealer is also a great alternative for covering up unwanted spots and keeping the rest of your skin natural!
After you've perfected your base, apply a hint of orange-tinted blush to the apples of your cheeks with a fluffy brush. A hint on your nose will also warm up your complexion and give you an added flush.
For the eyes, begin by coating your upper lids with a shimmery shade of golden brown eyeshadow, working all the way up to your brow bone. Blend the shadow with a fluffy shadow brush to create a more natural appearance. Next, using a small angled shadow brush, coat the area beneath your lower lashes with the same golden brown shadow, moving into the inner corners of your eyes to meet the shadow on the upper lids. Finish off with one coat of mascara on your upper lashes.
Further enhance your eyes by brushing your brows up and outwards with a brush and brow gel. This will add dimension to your face and bring the attention onto your eyes. Finish off your look with a hint of light pink or nude lip gloss and voila! You're ready to go!
A BRAIDED UP-DO
While we loved Emma's makeup look, it was her romantic hairstyle that really caught our eye. For the photocall, she wore her red locks in a soft up-do that allowed her bangs to frame her face. She turned up the romance factor with a small braid that worked its way upwards from her ear.
Inspired by her look? Start off by parting your hair slightly over to the side (but not too far), leaving your bangs (or a few loose pieces of hair if you don't have bangs), loose and over to one side. Pull your hair to the lower back of your head, leaving a small strand of hair loose you're your ear on the opposite side to where your bangs sit. Shape the hair into a loose bun at the back of your head by twisting the strands and then shaping. Secure with an elastic and bobby pins.
Next, using the small strand of hair by your ear, begin a traditional braid that moves up towards your head. Place the braid over your hair, and secure with bobby pins. Last but not least, curl your bangs or the loose pieces of hair that frame your face for the ultimate romantic hairstyle. Don't forget the hairspray!
