Red Velvet Look of the Week

Almost every food lover can agree that dessert is one of the best parts of a meal. It’s the cherry on top that leaves you with a satisfied, good feeling. Desserts are often paired with a dessert wine, tea, or coffee and sometimes are even served with savory snacks such as nuts and cheeses. The word itself originated from the French word “desservir” which translates to “to clear the table”. In the United Kingdom, dessert is more commonly referred to as “pudding”, “sweets”, or “afters”. Arguably one of the best things about dessert is the variety; according to Wikipedia, there are 11 different categories of dessert including biscuits or cookies, cakes, chocolates and candies, custards and puddings, etc… Today, we’ll be focusing on one of the most popular types of cakes- red velvet. Thus, without further ado, we present Emma Watson’s red velvet look.

We associate Emma’s look with a red velvet cake because of her beautiful red lip. This looks is chic and refined, but also bold, as it makes a statement. Here are the best products to use to recreate Emma’s delicious makeup.

 

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Liner

The key to a perfect red lip is to start off with liner. Made famous by Kylie Jenner, liner allows you to emphasize your lips, giving you a fuller pout. To start, line the lips and fill them in using the liner. This helps the lipstick last longer and have a more vivid color. Not only will the liner keep the lipstick in place, but it will also act as a base for whatever product you wish to use on top.

Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lipstick in “Strawberry Spice”

This lipstick is the perfect go-to rouge shade that will slide on your lips seamlessly. It is the perfect bright red color to match Emma’s. It is a “10 hour” lipstick and contains peptides, cocoa butter, and meranti. If you want more precision in your application, use a lip brush, but otherwise, you can apply this shade straight from the tube. For a matte finish, lightly dab the lipstick with a blotting sheet or tissue, but for a shiny finish, add some clear lipgloss on top.

Becca Sunchaser Palette

In this look, Emma has a very glowy, and rosy face. The best product to achieve her look is this palette from Becca Cosmetics. It includes a bronzer, blush, and highlighter all in one, which is very convenient. For Emma’s rosy cheeks, swipe on the blush in circle motions on the tops of your cheeks. Add the bronzer in a “3” shape on the side of your face, going from the forehead to the inner cheek, to the jaw. Finish with a little highlight down the bridge of your nose, on your cheekbones, cupid’s bow, and middle of the forehead.

It is waterproof, provides the brows with a soft powder stain, acts as a brow conditioner, and contains a built-in primer. Thus, not only does this gel save you a step, but it also will give you long-lasting results, even after you take it off. Apply with an angled brush, and you’re set!
