Red lips, blushed cheeks, and winged eyeliner are Old Hollywood glam signatures. The screen sirens of that golden era knew how to work major makeup in the pre-high def age. Bella Thorne's red lips and winged liner in one of her latest selfies were the epitome of Old Hollywood glam. The actress added more color to her face thanks to bright, orange x red blush, deposited off the apples of her cheeks and closer to her hairline. It was dramatic and Thorne was semi-unrecognizable, given her strong makeup look.
Thorne is known for her lush red locks, which she dyed blonde earlier this year, and her strands fell around her face in big waves. But it was all about the lips, which were perfectly lined and very red without looking fake or overly inflated.
The starlet added a soft wing to the upper outer corner of her eyes, with a little extra line at the bottom outer corner. It was a subtle touch.
Thorne has porcelain, peaches-and-cream skin. But she took it up a notch with the the blush-created flush. Since the blush wasn't dusted on the most common region —the apples of the cheeks— it upped her visage to somewhat exotic.
It was a whole lotta look, but Thorne looked so pretty.
IMHO, this is the sexiest look Thorne has ever done, and a total departure from her usual makeup looks.
Thorne's ivory skin and pale pink lips are more familiar to fans than the winged liner and red lip look, probably, but she is gorgeous when going minimal or statement-making with her makeup.
Here she is, all fresh-faced and sans makeup. Thorne was stunning in all three of these photos, rocking all different levels of makeup.
If you want to mimic Thorne's lip look, I highly suggest grabbing a matte pencil with deep color payoff. Bite Beauty's High Pigment Pencil in Pomegranate fits the bill, since you can use it to line and fill lips at once. Multitasking products are aces!
This pencil should get you started if you are ISO a major red mouth and need a little practice. Just make sure that your lips are totally conditioned with a clear balm and are flake-free before applying such a dramatic color. ($24, sephora.com)
