Rose Bryne’s makeup artist tells you how to get her classic date night look!

Rose Byrne wore a gorgeous red lip at the Breakthrough of the Year Awards in LA on Aug. 15. Paired with her simple eye makeup and loose, sexy waves, this bright pop of color is a perfect date look to transition into fall. “I’m always inspired by old Hollywood glamour, but this look was definitely a modern version of that,” says celebrity makeup artist and cofounder of Luxe Beauty Team Amy Hollier who created Rose’s beautiful look for the night. “It was more Angelina Jolie out in Manhattan, than Marilyn Monroe in Hollywood.”

Here’s how Amy got Rose’s look!

  • “With a small eyeshadow brush I added a little Starlight shadow by Stila to the inner corners of the eyes, then blended out across the top lid and under the eyebrow arches,” Amy says. “The shimmer picks up the light to brighten the eyes and give them a pop.”
  • “Paul & Joe’s mascara duo is a personal favorite of mine for creating dramatic black eyelashes,” Amy says. “This clever design has two ends, one a small comb for applying mascara right down at the base of the lashline, and the other end a mascara wand for brushing through the ends.”
  • “For a hot red lip that doesn’t fade away into the night, I wanted to make sure I used the right lip liner,” Amy says. “I lined the lips from the outer corners in on both sides, then filled the entire lip in with Stila’s longwear lipliner in Passionate. By filling in the lip area the lipstick will resist wearing off.”
  • “I finished her lips by brushing on Lipstick Queen’s Red Sinner with a small lipbrush,” Amy says. “A good tip to avoid going over the edges of your lips is to apply lipstick or gloss to the center of your lips first and then blend out to the edges.”
