Last night, Karlie Kloss and Alexa Chung attended the 2016 British Fashion Awards in London, England. For the occasion, the two fashion icons donned outfits worthy of the evenings theme and paired them with a bold (and festive) beauty look that caught our attention. Both ladies had the same idea: Bushy brows, minimal eye makeup, illuminated skin, and a orange tinted red lipstick that we now want to get our hands on!
Since these beauties have adopted similar looks for the same occasion, Get The Look has decided to find out which one you prefer best! Bright red-orange lips are the perfect (and easiest) way to fight the winter blues and add a touch of life to your winter ensembles. Still not convinced? To inspire you to adopt this bright shade of lipstick this season, we're giving you 5 reasons to swap your wintry shades of plum for a brighter shade like Karlie and Alexa's!
5 REASONS TO TRY RED-ORANGE LIPS THIS WINTER
KARLIE KLOSS & ALEXA CHUNG, ENOUGH SAID
When Karlie Kloss and Alexa Chung try out a new trend on the red carpet, you can be sure to see the look just about everywhere afterwards. Both Karlie and Alexa deal with some of the best makeup artists in the business, which means when it comes to beauty, they know what's about to blow up! Try this daring look to take yourself one step ahead of the fashion game!
IF YOU HAVE COPPER HIGHLIGHTS IN YOUR HAIR
While this shade of lipstick looks great on both blondes and brunettes (as proven by Karlie and Alexa), you may need some more convincing If you're rocking a different hair colour. If you have copper highlights in your hair, red-orange lipstick will make them pop, warm up your look and complement your skin tone for a flawless result!
TO WARM YOUR COMPLEXION
Red lipstick with an orange tint looks great when a bronzing powder is applied onto your skin – The duo creates a warm look. So when your skin is a little lighter and cooler in the winter, why not warm it up with a touch of bronzing powder and orange tinted red lipstick? For a more natural effect, you can opt for a golden liquid illuminator that will melt into your skin while providing a shimmery complexion.
TO BRIGHTEN DULL SKIN
In the winter time, our skin tends to appear drier and duller than usual. And while the first step to fixing this problem is proper exfoliation, the second best step is to turn to a warm and bright coloured lipstick. Create a contrast with your look by warming up a dull, pale complexion with an orange tinted red lip!
TO AVOID EYE MAKEUP
One of the best unspoken beauty rules is that when rocking a bold or bright lip, less eye makeup is needed. So, if you're feeling a little lazy or experiencing winter blues, forget the daily struggle with liquid eyeliner and turn to this beautiful bold shade of lipstick as an alternative!
