Working for M·A·C Cosmetics, makeup artist Val Garland described the look as a “young, fresh Monique Lhuillier red carpet moment.”

She evened out skin with Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 Foundation and added a bit of M·A·C PRO Shine Mixing Medium applied high on the cheekbones to highlight.

The eyes were kept nude. Lashes were curled while the brows were brushed up with Clear Brow Set.

On the lips, the focal point of the look, Val used a new product, Huggable Lipcolour in Cherry Glaze, on the entire lip then pressed Basic Red Pigment into the center.
