While I could leave her Josie Grossy get-up (shout-out to Fashionista for nailing that reference) for her pre-show performance, Charli XCX’s VMA red carpet makeup look was on point. Here, makeup artist Colby Smith went bold with a bright red lip to mirror Charli’s bold Jeremy Scott x Moschino animal print ensemble. Here, the beauty breakdown.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk in #4 and #6
Giorgio Armani Maestro Eraser in #2
MAC Prep & Prime Loose Powder
Technique: Mix together Luminous Silk in #4 and #6 to create the perfect shade and apply to smooth out complexion. Apply Maestro Eraser under the eyes to brighten and illuminate. Set complexion with loose powder.
NEW Giorgio Armani Eye & Brow Maestro in #2 (launches on www.giorgioarmanibeauty.com tomorrow!)
Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Waterproof Pencil in #1
NEW Giorgio Armani Black Ecstasy Mascara
Technique: Create a bold brow by filling in with Eye & Brow Maestro. Apply black liner to the waterline and smudge out, then apply a clear gloss on the lid. Finish the eye with several coats of Black Ecstasy mascara.
Giorgio Armani Maestro Blush in #500
Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer in #2
Technique: Apply Maestro Blush to the hollows of the cheek and highlight cheekbones with Fluid Sheer to adddefinition.
Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in #400
MAC Lip Liner in Cherry
Technique: Fill in lip with Lip Maestro to create a full, impactful look. Trace lip line with liner to keep color in place.
