Leighton Meester At ‘The Judge’ Premiere — Get Her Makeup: Caramel Brown Lips
The star of Leighton’s makeup look was definitely her caramel lip.
CK One Global makeup artist Kayleen McAdams said, “I love the new fall brown lip trend, and Leighton is the type of girl who can pull off any look, so I opted for a caramel lip as the focus of this look.”
To get Leighton’s beautifully brown lips, try CK One Pure Color Lipstick in ‘Smooch.’ It is the perfect caramel brown, and will last on your lips for hours.
Kayleen said she blotted Leighton’s lips twice before running a cotton swab around the edges of her lips after applying lipstick. This gave a soft effect to the look while still keeping the color prominent.
Here’s how to get her exact makeup look — Kayleen spills her tricks:
“Leighton’s outfit was strong and graphic, so I purposely avoided harsh colors. Instead, I created a soft, pretty look so Leighton’s skin could glow from within.
I started with a highlighting moisturizer before applying a light layer of ck one 3-in-1 face makeup with SPF 8 sunscreen in 200 fair, which creates a sheer and natural skin palette. To highlight her beautiful bone structure, I applied ck one skin illuminator in 100 cool on the tops of her cheeks, bridge of her nose, and her cupid’s bow. Rather than using contour products, I used a small amount of ck one 3-in-1 concealer in 2 light medium to even out her skin tone before lightly dusting a plum blush, Hourglass Ambient Blush in Mood Exposure, to make her skin come to life.
I wanted Leighton’s lips to be the focus, so right after finishing her skin, I started on her lips,
which gave me the base for her overall look — I catered the rest of her makeup around it. Once I chose the exact caramel shade, ck one pure color lipstick in 810 smooch, I applied it to her lips and blotted twice, then blurred the edges with a Q-tip, giving her lips a soft look that still had impact.
On Leighton’s eyes, I used a basic beige/brown eyeshadow, ck one eyeshadow base in 710 prim, all over her lid and along her bottom lash line, followed by a very narrow black line of ck one eyeliner marker in 800 the drama, just at the root of her lashes to make her eyes stand out. I also applied a thick coat of ck one volumizing mascara in 800 black to her top and bottom lashes.”
