Carmen Electra goes dramatic with eye makeup in L.A.

Carmen Electra is not only renowned for her acting skills, but for her ageless beauty as well. Recently, the celebrity showed that she still knows plenty about how to wear the right cosmetics to give herself a flawless appearance on the red carpet.

Electra showed up to the premiere of “This Is The End” in Los Angeles, Calif., looking stunning in a long white gown. However, it wasn’t just her ensemble that caught the eyes of onlookers – it was her perfect makeup! Electra played it simple with a rosy, glossy lipstick on her pout to highlight her gorgeous smile. On her eyes, she opted for some drama with dark liquid eyeliner and lengthening mascara. It was just the right amount of eye makeup for the formal occasion, and it accented the beautiful blue color of her irises.

If you’ve always wanted lush lashes like the ones that Electra flaunts, you might simply need to replace the tools you’re using, according to Allure magazine. Think about opting for a mascara wand that has a slight curve to give your lashes more appeal and apply your formula more evenly in front of the mirror.

Jada Pinkett Smith knows how to wear mascara flawlessly

When you’re married to a famous actor, you’re expected to always look fabulous while hanging off of his arm. Jada Pinkett Smith knows this when she steps onto the red carpet alongside her husband, Will Smith, and she showed off her know-how at the premiere of “After Earth” in New York City.

Although much of the fanfare surrounded her husband and their son, Jaden, who is also starring in the film, Pinkett Smith looked as glamorous as ever. Her ruffled pink short-sleeved cocktail dress was unique and fitting for the spring season. However, it was her flawless makeup that truly stole the show. On her lips, Pinkett Smith wore a beautiful subtle pink lip gloss to draw attention to her voluptuous pout. She kept it simple around her eyes with a bit of black mascara to lengthen and define her lashes.

If you want to get a stunning look like the one that Pinkett Smith rocked on the red carpet, you can easily do so by securing a heated lash curler and a dark mascara, according to The Huffington Post. Adding some curl to your lashes before applying your mascara can help you make your peepers look bolder and more beautiful.

Kourtney Kardashian goes bold with blue eyeliner

When you’re a part of the Kardashian family, it’s almost mandatory to look beautiful whenever you’re out in public. Kourtney Kardashian knows that this is true, especially when walking along the red carpet. Recently, the reality television star made an appearance at the 30th birthday bash held for her longtime boyfriend, Scott Disick.

At the event, her lacy, feathery dress stole most of the show, giving her an edgy look that most people aren’t used to seeing. However, it might have been Kardashian’s eye makeup that truly made her appear more unique – blue eyeliner was on tap! It also seemed as if Kardashian wore a bit of bronzer to give her face some summer-inspired color while she smiled for photographers. Because her eye makeup was so dramatic, she chose to go light on her pout with a sheer glossy lipstick.

It’s too early to tell if this is the new type of look that Kardashian will be rocking in the future. However, you can take advantage of her style now before everyone else hops on the bandwagon. To avoid looking too over-the-top, Redbook magazine recommends using blue eyeliner on your inner rims for a clean appearance.

These days, it seems like more celebrities are getting braver when it comes to their makeup choices. Bold lipstick and dark, dramatic eyeliner are growing in popularity, and why not? Anything goes on the red carpet, and this is exactly what Ellen Page recently proved in Los Angeles.

Page was present for the premiere of “The East,” and she looked simply stunning in a little black dress that hugged her body in all the right places. While she didn’t do anything unusual with her brunette locks, Page stepped it up with bold makeup that gave her face a chic, 21st-century look. On her lips, she wore a muted red lipstick that complemented her fair skin tone. Around her eyes, she had black mascara that gave her lashes some length. Her cheeks were a bit rosy with a hint of pink blush, which topped off her entire appearance.

You don’t need to be attending a red carpet event to flaunt daring makeup like Page! For instance, you can easily make a statement by simply opting for vivid lipstick for your next outing. Real Simple magazine recommends going light on the eye makeup to allow your pout to do all of the work.

Amber Rose looks flawless with glossy pink lipstick

One woman who knows a few things about turning heads is Amber Rose, and the model isn’t shy about showing a little skin. Recently, Rose was seen on the arm of rapper and fiance Wiz Khalifa during Memorial Day weekend in Las Vegas. She wore a low-cut white tank top and large gold hoop earrings as she waved to photographers at the Palms pool.

Rose is renowned for her buzz cut look, which gives her an edginess while she maintains her sexiness. However, Rose has beautiful facial features that she frequently accents with top-quality cosmetics as well – it’s not all about her (lack of) hair!

At the Palms pool, Rose piled on the black mascara to give her peepers a dramatic look. She kept it simple on the rest of her face, topping off her appearance with glossy pink lipstick that shimmered on her pout when she smiled.

Do you like wearing lip gloss but find it challenging to maintain over the course of several hours? Daily Glow recommends using a bit of face powder on your finished pout to help the gloss adhere better to your lips for long wear.

Heather Graham shines in Europe with dramatic eye makeup

One woman who knows a thing or two about attending red carpet events is Heather Graham. The illustrious actress has been going to these events for years, and she recently showed up to the European premiere of “The Hangover III” to wow audiences once again with her beauty.

Khloe Kardashian Odom shows off pout in nude shade

When she isn’t promoting her clothing line or reality television show, Khloe Kardashian Odom is making red carpet appearances around the world. Recently, the celebrity was present at the launch of the Glam Louder Program and Bling It On! Contest for HPNOTIQ liqueur, and she couldn’t have looked more stunning.

The Kardashian sister showed off her curves in a little, tight-fitting dress composed of horizontal red and white stripes – very summer chic! On her face, she wore a nude lipstick and only a hint of pink blush on the apples of her cheeks. Around her peepers, she opted for black mascara and a bit of black eyeliner to give her eyes some intrigue.

Just because you don’t have your own reality television show doesn’t mean that you can’t look fabulous this season! One way to fall in line with trends of the summer is to wear a neutral lipstick on your lips. Bella Sugar recommends looking for one that has a glossy finish to ensure that your appearance doesn’t fall flat. Before you put it on, be sure to exfoliate your lips to remove dead skin and give yourself a clean surface.

Isla Fisher shows off pout with glossy pink lipstick

If you’ve already got your True makeup alongside you in time for summer, you might think that you don’t need to do any more preparation for the upcoming season. However, you can always expand your knowledge of cosmetics and application by seeing what Hollywood celebs are doing on the red carpet.

One woman who can give you inspiration is actress Isla Fisher, who recently wowed crowds when she made an appearance at the premiere of “Now You See Me” in New York City. The fiery redhead knew just which features to highlight on her face with her makeup, and she showed that spring is the perfect time to rock a pink, glossy lipstick. While she chose to go bold on her pout, she kept it simple around her eyes with a little bit of silver shimmery eyeshadow to make her peepers pop. With a hint of dark mascara on her lashes, Fisher was ready to turn heads!

If you want to wear pink lipstick without looking too bold, InStyle magazine recommends trying a matte appearance. Simply dab a small amount of translucent powder onto your pout to finish off your look.

Is Ke$ha finally growing up with her makeup choices?

It's no secret that Ke$ha can't get enough of the party life now that she's a famous singer, but the pop star seems to be growing up right in front of the world's eyes! Recently, Ke$ha showed up to the 2013 Billboard Music Awards wearing something refreshing – a little black dress. Her hair was tied back, sleek and casual – definitely different from what the pop star usually chooses to do with her tresses!

It's also worth noting that Ke$ha toned down her makeup for once. Instead of wearing flashy eyeshadow and more than enough eyeliner, she chose to play it simple with a small amount of black liquid eyeliner around her peepers. She had a cat eye look and very little mascara on her lashes. 

On her lips, Ke$ha wore a light pink lipstick, then used a subtle peach blush on her cheeks for some color. Some would say that it was very adult of the songstress, who's been criticized for her fashion and makeup choices in the past.

Want to rock a pink lipstick that perfectly matches your pout? InStyle magazine claims that if you try to match your lipstick color to your gums, you'll have a winning look every time!

Jennifer Lopez opts for a dewy look at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards

When seeking makeup inspiration, many people turn to Jennifer Lopez, and for good reason. The Latina superstar is not only renowned for her voice, but her natural beauty. Recently, Lopez showed up to the 2013 Billboard Music Awards in a stunning gold gown with equally eye-pleasing makeup on her face.

Instead of going bold with a bright color on her pout, Lopez chose to keep it simple with a nude lip gloss that gave her mouth a fresh look. On her eyes, Lopez wore brown eyeshadow that offered her peepers some depth. Black eyeliner and mascara topped off her appearance, providing volume to her lashes. Rather than attract attention to her cheeks with blush, she opted for a dewy complexion with concealer and foundation.

If you've always wanted to give your skin the sheen that Lopez had on the red carpet, you don't have to go to extremes. You can easily achieve a moist, hydrated appearance with moisturizer on your face, according to Bella Sugar. Finish it off with a tinted moisturizer, then remove any excess oil with a blotting sheet. This is an easy look you can wear at work as well as at the bar.
