A striking red lip always makes for an elegant effect when paired with a classic LBD, and at the New York City premiere of Virginia, Jennifer Connelly did just that. We love how she gave the look an instant update by going for a glossy finish. “Jennifer’s dress inspired me to work with beautiful saturated colors,” said her makeup artist Genevieve Herr, who used Shiseido products. “I concentrated on her amazing lips and kept the rest of the makeup dewy and clean to compliment her radiant skin." When going for a similar look, skip the sheer red glosses and look for a full-coverage crème formulaalmost like a liquid lipstick. That way, you’ll get the classic opaque lip, but with a modern, mirror-like sheen.
