Star of The Vampire Diaries Kat Graham knows how to take a red carpet by storm, especially when it comes down to her makeup looks! Always one for high-drama eyeshadows and eye-catching lipstick shades, this 26-year-old actress knows how to bring bold and daring looks to the red carpet.
Read on for our 3 favorite party looks from this leading lady...
Ombré berry lips
On Saturday night, October 3, Kat attended the Los Angeles premiere for American Horror Story: Hotel, wearing a black tailored trouser + blazer ensemble. We loved her smoothed back wet look short bob which she then paired with voluminous XXL lashes and an ombré berry lipstick.
To master this lipstick look, start by tracing the outer edge of your lips with a dark lip liner. Switch to a dark red lipstick shade and use an application brush to apply lightly to the corners of your lips and around the outer edge, blending with the liner. Finish with a red-tinted lip gloss across the center of your lips. Simple!
Electric blue eyes
Only a day before, October 2, Kat had stepped out for Teen Vogue's 13th Annual Young Hollywood Issue Launch Party, giving her whole look a total revamp! This time the star donned a geometrically patterned pantsuit with a bandeau top, slicking her hair back into a high ponytail and giving her makeup some electrifying blue eyeshadow.
Give this look a go by swapping your regular eye liner for a colored alternative. Finish with two coats of mascara and you are ready to hit the party!
Smouldering in bronze + plum
To give your makeup look a sultry smoulder during the approaching colder months, why not try out Kat's dark, glowing palette from the Entertainment Weekly Pre-Emmy Party on September 18! The actress combined side-swept romantic curls with bronzed cheeks, a dark plum lipshade and a dusting of gold shimmering eyeshadow across her lids.
Add further definition to your shimmering eyeshadow by coating the water lines of your eyes with liquid liner, then complete your look with a coat of mascara.
