Olivia Culpo became queen of the red carpet earlier this week when she sported this head-to-toe glam look. Wearing her dark hair sleek and straight, Olivia completed her beauty look for the ‘InStyle’ Awards with the prettiest crimson lip we’ve ever seen. Click ahead for the full how-to.
As a former beauty queen, it’s no surprise that Olivia Culpo knows how to wow on the red carpet. But at the 2nd annual InStyle magazine awards held in Los Angeles earlier this week, the 24-year-old’s look was less pageant queen and more Old Hollywood star.
Instead of going for voluminous curls, Olivia’s hair was styled completely straight and with a wet finish thanks to one of our fave stylists, Justine Marjan. Prepping the hair with R+Co Park Ave Blowout Balm and the Ouai Wave Spray, Justine used the ghd Air Hair Dryer to blow out Olivia’s hair smooth and straight.
Brushing the hair back, Justine gave the slicked-back look hold and a wet finish by saturating it with the R+Co Vicious Strong Hold Hairspray, concentrating the spray at the root. After running some of the Leonor Greyl Eclat Natural Styling Cream through the ends of the hair, Justine made sure to tame any flyaways into place by combing them back with a toothbrush.
But Olivia’s look wouldn’t have been complete without her stunning makeup, which was done by Liz Castellanos. Making sure her skin was hydrated by prepping it with every makeup artist and model’s favorite moisturizer, Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre, Liz added foundation, highlighter, a shimmery smokey eye and false lashes before turning her attention to a statement-making lip.
Mixing three shades to create the perfect rich red hue, Liz started by lining Olivia’s lips with the Bobbi Brown Sangria Lip Pencil and filling them with MAC D for Danger Lipstick. To make her lips appear fuller and add more dimension to the color, Liz finished by applying Charlotte Tilbury The Queen Lipstick at the center of the lips only.
