Steal This Look: Carey Mulligan at Cannes!
NARS makeup artist Georgie Eisdell shows us how to perfect the 1950's red lip.

NARS worked with makeup artist Georgie Eisdell to create the beauty look for Carey Mulligan who attended the opening ceremony and premiere of The Great Gatsby at the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival. Beauty editors and makeup artists alike would agree, a bold red lip with minimal eye shadow is always in.

“It’s a big statement for her and we wanted to keep this look as modern as possible,” said Georgie Eisdell about the NARS look she created for Carey Mulligan. “I’ve only once created a red lip with her, but I loved the idea of contrast with the pale pink dress. I felt strongly about that being the focus of the look. I knew I wanted to go bold when I saw the dress. I thought a red lip would be so striking.”

To get the look, use a nude lip pencil around the edges of your mouth for precision. Swipe one coat of NARS semi-matte lipstick in Jungle Red to your pout, blot with a tissue, then swipe one more coat of lipstick on for staying power. Brush some loose powder around your face and rub NARS blush in Sex Appeal to the apples of your cheeks thenvoila!
