A bold red lip is the perfect punctuation for any holiday look, and no one can pull off a crimson pout better than a Victoria’s Secret model.
Elsa Hosk, who wore the Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra on this year’s runway, wore a deep red lipstick with rosy blush and eye makeup to the 2018 Cannes Film Festival. Makeup artist and Shiseido North American color artist Vincent Oquendo — who in addition to Hosk counts Hailey Baldwin, Paris Jackson, Olivia Culpo and Chloë Grace Moretz among his clients — stopped by Page Six Style to show us how to get the model’s beauty look.
One surprising trick Oquendo uses to help a red lip pop? He makes the whole face monochromatic, adding a pink and red blush and eye color palette. “By adding that warmth around the eyes,” he explained, “it ties the whole picture together.”
Oquendo used the Shiseido Essentialist Eye Palette ($34) in Jizoh Street Reds to add warmth around the eyes. He also used the Naname Fude Multi Eye Brush ($28) to create dimension. For blush, the artist brushed InnerGlow Cheek Powder ($29) in Berry Dawn on the back of the cheekbones near the ears for a hint of color.
To achieve the high-impact red lip itself, Oquendo used the ModernMatte Powder Lipstick ($26) in Hyper Red and topped it with the Crystal Gel Gloss ($22). It’s the perfect combo for your holiday card — just maybe don’t wear it under the mistletoe.
