Grammy Glamour: Red Carpet Looks From Celebrity Makeup Artist Trendee King
The Grammy Awards are just a few days away (February 8), and Sunday night’s red carpet will be something you won’t want to miss. We caught up with Hollywood’s favorite Celebrity Makeup Artist, Trendee King, to find out what looks she will be creating for the Grammys.
“I will be sending my clients down the velvety red carpet with lips and skin to match,” said King. “For skin, the look will be matte, yet bright. I will be using Benefits Hello Flawless to achieve this soft suede look.” For a sheer, natural finish, sweep Hello Flawless on with a brush using light, quick strokes, and blend from the center of your face outward. For full coverage, apply evenly over entire complexion with the sponge. For spot cover-up, pat gently and blend over any areas where you want extra coverage.
“Creamy skin and beautiful matte lips will be a hit on the Grammy runway and my go-to lip product is Lime Crime’s Velvetines collection, in colors that are deep and rich including Wicked (a black cherry), Cashmere (a grayish-mauve), Salem (a velvety-smooth chocolate) and Red Velvet (a Hollywood red).” Lime Crime’s innovative formula goes on liquid and dries completely matte so you are camera-ready with touch-proof, transfer-proof lips.
For eyes, King says the Grammys will be all about matte lids with sweeping lashes. “I will be coating lashes generously with Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and layering Velour lashes one on top of the other, for a wide-awake, youthful gaze.”
