Grammys 2014: Get P!NK’s Smoky Stare

By  January 27, 2014

Before descending from the ceiling from a couple pieces of fabric, Pink brought a knockout appearance to the red carpet. Foregoing her namesake color, the Grammy nominee chose a red-hot satin gown, paired with a smoky eye and perfectly un-done hair. Her edgy makeup offset the streamlined elegance of the singer’s dress, making her overall look as badass as her acrobatics performance.

 

Makeup and Nails:
Pink showed off her naturally radiant skin and let her eyes do the majority of the talking. The makeup artist began with a small amount of liquid foundation, mainly through the T-zone, to uniform the skin and give a photo finish for the base. Next, she used a luminizer to highlight the cheekbones, jawline and crest of the upper lip. To add warmth and dimension to Pink's face, she sculpted the cheekbones with a bronzer. To start the bold smoky eye, she applied a concealer on the lid, brow bone and inner corner of the eye to add brightness and define the brow. Next, she drew a sharp black line along the base of the singer's lashes and used a black shadow to make her eyes pop. She curled Pink's lashes and coated them with volumizing mascara. Brows were perfected and elongated using a soft brow pencil and tamed with clear gel. Nude lips topped off the look, as did nude nails, which were created by layering a= soft blush lacquer on top of a light nude.
