Singer Carrie Underwood traded her ‘country star boots’ for an angelic Abed Mahfouz embellished gown paired with a stylish side swept loose waved hairstyle and a sultry smoke eye makeup. The timeless makeup she opted for matched perfectly the occasion as well as her attire and complimented her features perfectly. A sultry eye definition such as Carrie’s, a mix of black and shimmery gold paired with super defined black eyelashes created on either natural or through the help of lash extensions, will always have a high impact over your look, so dare to give the look a try and experience the seductive power of smokey eye makeup. To obtain a soft, more mysterious allure, apply a soft black eyeliner pencil across the waterline, as this way the makeup will be even more intense and appealing. Because of the heavy eye makeup the rest of the makeup needs to be toned down so keep things minimal with a touch of foundation, a peach/tan blush and a gorgeous nude lipstick or lip gloss.
‘Gloriana’ singer Rachel Reinert opted for a very popular makeup look, an ‘au naturel’ look that gave her a very chic, fresh and youthful allure that made heads turn. This universally flattering makeup look can be easily achieved with the help of essential makeup products such as foundation, mascara, eyeliner, blush and lipstick. The secret to the perfection of this makeup look is flawless looking skin, so make sure you conceal any blemishes and create an even skin tone using foundation or a tinted moisturizer. Sculpt your cheekbones by applying a bit of rosy tone blush and add an eye popping effect to your look by applying a black or grey eyeliner close to the lashline and coat your eyelashes using a black mascara. Add a finishing touch that will make all the difference by coating your lips with a sheer and high shine nude colored lipstick that will make you feel divalicious.
Award-winning singer Taylor Swift dazzled on the red carpet wearing a gorgeous white and metallic gold dress paired with a sultry brown eye makeup underlined by her brow skimming bangs hairstyle. The 22 year old diva radiates on the red carpet with every occasion and this time she didn’t disappoint also as her look was fit for a queen. The brown tone mix paired with high volume black eyelashes and nude colored lips gave her an irrefutable boost of elegance that made the camera flashes go off like crazy, so this is definitely a look to consider for a more formal event. The boldness of the make consists in the color option as well as the style which features an eyeshadow smudge from the inner to the outer corner of the lower lash line, so dare to experiment with this sexy eye makeup and prepare to make traffic stop!
