These beauties, especially Jessica, had our favorite orange lip looks for the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 13, 2013 in Beverly Hills, California–here’s how you can recreate it with help from the pros.
The Globes were filled with so many glam beauty looks, but there was one that really stood out: orange-hued lipstick. Jessica Alba, 31, rocked a bright tangerine hue, while Sofia Vergara, 40, wore a burnt orange look. The shade instantly brightened up both beauties and is an unexpected alternative to red.
We loved the look so much, we wanted you to be able to recreate it at home! So, naturally we turned to celebrity makeup artist, Julie Tussey from Angelo David Salon in NYC. “The shade brightens everyone up,” says Julie. “It’s a fresh alternative to red and can surprisingly work on all skin tones. Julie says the key to wearing such a bold shade is all in the formulation. Play with different formulas: A gloss will give you a sheer wash of color while a lipstick will impart a full pigment look, says Julie.
We found out the exact products that were used on both actresses. On Sofia her makeup artist applied Queen Collection Lipcolor in Into the Red straight from the tube, blotted and added another coat to make it last all night. Jessica’s makeup artist used Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Riviera, a vibrant tangerine shade, was applied to the lips. The velvety matte color delivers richly pigmented and long-lasting coverage for up to 14 hours.
