“I am loving the fresh clean take on the classic Hollywood red carpet bold lip paired with Jessica Rabbit hair waves! … I adored the bold, tangerine lip hue worn by Jessica Alba that complimented her coral dress at the [Golden Globes],” says Green. Jessica Alba showed off a clean face highlighted with bold lip for a pop of color to flatter her amazing awards outfit. Sometimes less is more and the perfect bold shade of lipstick against a fresh face with the right accessories can emphasize your natural beauty by adding a touch of glamour to your lips. To find that shade of color that makes show-stopping lips, beauty connoisseur, Sephora, can serve all your needs with a selection of high-end brands.

For an intense pop of color for your lips, Smashbox Love Me Legendary Lipstick offers you a daring shade of red and luscious coral. For a more luminous satin finish, the Monica Voluptuous Lipstick by Dolce & Gabbana offers a highly pigmented color palette of red and pink shades to make those lips the center of attention.

If you’re looking to dramatize your eyes, some luminous eye shadow highlighted with black liner and mascara can do just the trick. “For glam eyes, I can’t resist combining black pencil with coppery eye shadow, and lashings of black mascara. This creates a deep smoldering gaze and also makes the color of your eyes really pop! I also do love deep purples and eggplant shades combined with charcoal gray…,” says Green. For those lovely coppery shades, Charlie Green adores the “In the Nude” Moonshadow Backed Palette by the Sephora Collection, which offers a sparkly finish to your eyes.

If you want something more intense, Urban Decay velvety collection features vamped-up purple shades. To complete the look, add the Tarte EmphasEYES Waterproof Clay Liner/Shadow and Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes Mascara to create stunning finish with full lashes that extend and lift with succulent volume. “This is my favorite eye to create for Penelope Cruz and Angelina Jolie,” says Green.

In addition to gorgeous plump lips and spectacular eyes, a red-carpet look is not complete without a radiant, flawless complexion. “For a flawless complexion everyone [loves]BB creams! Used in place of foundation you get a dewy ethereal effect,” says Green. The Stila ‘Stay-All Day 10-in-1’ HD Beauty Balm is an all-in-one balm that can visibly improve your complexion and make your skin look unblemished.

“Cream blush with a hint of shimmer creates a seamless natural flush and for those not brave enough to follow the dark eyebrow trend I am seeing a lot of use of eyebrow gel used to train eyebrows into a more bushy style,” Green adds. The Highlighting Crème Duo by Anastasia illuminates and hydrates your skin for a subtle glow.
