Kendall Jenner realizes the power of long, fluttery eyelashes, Gabrielle Union finds the best shade of summery red lipstick, and Ciara perfects subtle glamour. Here the red-carpet beauty looks we loved this week.
Ciara at the 2015 ESPY Awards: Pairing a formal gown with subtle hair and makeup is such a good way to look effortlessly chic. Exhibit A: Ciara's center-parted, low ponytail, metallic eye shadow, bronzed cheeks, and nude lips — a gorgeous look that works for just about any type of wedding.
Kendall Jenner at the 2015 ESPY Awards: One way to make your eyes stand out in photographs? Concentrate on elongating your lashes like Kendall did. Our favorite foolproof way to achieve it: Start by curling them. (Shu Uemura's eyelash curler is one of our all-time favorites.) Then, beginning at the root, apply two coats of lengthening mascara. Comb a disposable mascara wand through your lashes to eliminate any clumps. If you want to go the extra mile, add a few single fake lashes, like Ardell's Individuals, at the outer corners of your eyes.
Gabrielle Union at the Todd Snyder S/S 2016 fashion show: With soft waves, glowing skin, and poppy red lips, Gabrielle's look is summery perfection. Keeping down 'dos frizz-free can be tricky in the heat, though, so be sure to prep with a serum or spray, like Moroccanoil Frizz Control. And when you're going for that dewy finish, use a primer underneath, like Kate Somerville Prime Protection Dual Action Primer, so your base doesn't melt off your face. (It has SPF in it, too!) And for that orange-y red lip? Try Clinique's Pop Lip Colour + Primer in Poppy Pop — like the name implies, it's a lipstick and primer all in one nifty little bottle.
