No one does a 'no makeup' makeup look quite as well as Karlie Kloss, but we have to admit that our favorite way to see the model and L'Oréal Paris spokesperson is when she's rocking the red carpet with a coordinating rouge lipstick!
Kloss' stunning look at the British Fashion Awards in November had everything we could want from our holiday makeup : a luminous complexion, sculpted cheekbones, bright eyes, and that bold red lip! No matter how you celebrate the holidays, there's no doubt you'll need a fresh and fabulous makeup look to suit the occasion, so take inspiration from Karlie and follow our simple tutorial...
Get the Look
Start with a perfecting primer to even out your skin tone, smooth away fine lines and blur away imperfections. Then distribute a pea-sized amount of radiance-enhancing tinted moisturizer onto the back of your hand before using a foundation sponge to press it into your skin. Focus on the chin, nose and forehead before blending out toward the edges of the face for the best coverage.
Next, use an angled blush brush to use a contouring powder to define your cheek bones. Tap off any remaining product and then use the same brush to apply a soft pink-nude blush to the apples of your cheeks. Make sure to blend out any harsh edges!
Start by defining your upper lash lines with a thin line of black liquid liner. Dot shimmery white eyeshadow into the corners of your eyes and then add length and volume to your lashes with two coats of mascara. Karlie's eye-opening beauty secret? Line your bottom waterlines with a highlighter pencil to make the whites look bigger!
Exfoliate your lips and then line then with a red lip liner pencil. Fill in with the pencil to give your lip color something extra to grab on to before using a lip brush to apply your favorite red shade. All done!
