M.A.C BAFTA 'Red' Carpet Pout

On the night of the BAFTA's the M.A.C PRO team got to work on the award nominees at the Pelham Hotel BAFTA style suite and it seems the most requested look of the night was a red carpet pout.

The red lipped look was worn by many of the attendees that M.A.C made over including...
Kate Ford from Coronation Street.
Antonia Thomas from Misfits.
Charlie Brooks from Eastenders.
And Sheridan Smith who was presenting an award but is also from one of my favourite TV shows Jonathan Creek.
The look is surprisingly simple to create and with just a few products (from my style suite goodie bag) You can create it too.
Before and after applying your base apply some Strobe Liquid Lotion this will give the skin a soft luminous look and make the skin look naturally radiant.
After applying your base use 'Golden' Bronzing Powder to add depth and dimension to the face as well as a sun kissed glow.
'Golden' is a "Muted golden tan-beige with shimmer" M.A.C also have a range of different bronzing shades depending on your preference and skin tone.
Once you've done the face its time to move onto the eyes. This look doesn't have much on the eyes so the focus is on the lashes.
For the lashes there is this incredibly quirky new mascara that M.A.C have come out with called Haute & Naughty Lash.
It is double wanded! one for volumizing, which I personally apply first to bulk out the lash and build volume at the base.
And one for lengthening which I apply second to lengthen the lash and get out any clumps.
I love this mascara its brilliant, I usually use two different mascaras to do the same thing but now I don't have to which has certainly lightened my makeup bag.
Next up is lashes, these ones are number 33s a light natural looking lash that adds volume and of course Duo lash adhesive the best lash glue in the industry to make sure your lashes don't go astray on your big night.
Something else you don't want going astray is your brows so keep them in check with 'Clear' Brow Set (I use this stuff everyday).
And finally for the main focus of the look the red lip, start of by lining the lips in 'Cherry' Lip Pencil a classic M.A.C liner staple.
And then fill the lips in with 'Prolong' Pro Longwear Lipcreme which is a new formulation lipstick from M.A.C which is long wearing but surprisingly creamy and moisturizing to make sure your lippy stays on all night but doesn't dry out your lips.
'Prolong' is a "true red" with blue undertones, perfect for many different skin tones.

And this is the completed 'Red' Carpet Pout look.
