Makeup Trend: Pale Pouts at the 2013 Grammy Awards
By Marissa Hicken |
If there was one trend we especially loved during Sunday night’s 55th Annual Grammy Awards, it was the popular nude lip. Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Lopez, Faith Hill and Kelly Rowland were just a few of the celebs sporting this red-carpet trend. Read on to see some of our other favorite stars’ nude-lip looks and find out what shades their makeup artists used to create them, so you can try them yourself.
For Adele's Grammy look, makeup artist Michael Ashton played up her signature cat eye with a glowing complexion, high-volume lashes and a soft pink lip.
To create a blush tone lip, Ashton chose Armani Lip Maestro 500 ($32) which has a high concentration of pigment to create a punch of color, and staying power to prevent reapplication throughout the evening. He also used MyFace lip liner ($16) in Nude and Sisley Phyto Lip Star Lip Gloss in White Diamond ($55) to complete the soft lip.
“The makeup was inspired by the colors and details of her beautiful beaded dress and jewelry. I wanted to give Allison a dark rimmed eye with a touch of shimmery charcoal gray,” says celebrity makeup artist Mai Quynh for tarte.
To create a rosy, nude hue for Allison’s pout, Quynh applied tarte’s LipSurgence matte lip tint in hope ($24).
Celebrity makeup artist Joanna Simkin gave Estelle a luminescent complexion and smoky eyes for the Grammys. Rounding out the look: thick lashes, a dusting of shimmer across her cheekbones and a natural lip with Lancôme L'Absolu Nu Lipcolor in Beige Silk ($30).
Katy Perry went for an old Hollywood-inspired makeup look created for her by makeup artist Jake Bailey.
