Hailee Steinfeld Does Her First Red Lip! Do You Remember Your First Experience With Red?

Wearing your very first red lip look is a huge step, and Hailee dives right in wearing NARS’ Jungle Red!

Hailee Steinfeld‘s makeup artist, Stephen Sollitto, created the stunning look. See how he defined her breakthrough red lip moment and tell me about your first time wearing the shade!

Here’s how Stephen perfected Hailee’s ravishing red lip:

  • “Lining them was important just to give staying power and precision to the lip shape. A sloppy red or bleeding red lip is not pretty anywhere. To line I used Stila Lip Liner #27. It’s not an exact color match but it was the right texture I was looking for to support the lipstick.”
  • Then with my favorite Issada Lip brush I applied NARS classic Jungle Red [lipstick]. Its color was the exact red I was looking for. It’s a staple and such a solid dependable red I not only thought it was the perfect color but a perfect introduction to Hailee and her first Hollywood lip.
  • Stephen’s red lip warning: “Now for the record a red lip is NOT for every fourteen year old girl but every once in a while when the night is big enough I think it’s okay to push the boundaries just a bit especially if you have the poise, the sincerity and thoughtfulness that Hailee did.”

HollywoodLifers, do you remember your first time wearing red lipstick or are you still abstaining from wearing the shade? I want to know what you wore, where you wore it and how it went!
