The always stunning Penelope Cruz can typically do no wrong when it comes to nailing red carpet looks. However, her recent appearance at the Toronto International Film Festival was even more beautiful than we ever thought was possible. Glamour magazine recently broke down exactly how to work this bronze-inspired look into your life and it should happen soon.
Let's start with her lips as she was able to rock a mellow muted pink hue and then spice it up with tons of gloss. The style looked perfect on her pout and helped her look both ladylike and ultra chic.
To achieve a similar feel, first pick up a few shades of lipstick ranging from light pink to light purple, as Cruz's color falls somewhere in between. Try on the colors in good and less flattering lighting, such as your school or office's bathroom, to test out how it really looks on you. Once you select the perfect shade, swipe on a few coats and then finish it off with a layer of clear gloss.
The real star of this look is Cruz's cheeks, as the makeup artist behind the style knew how to enhance them and make them stand out. To gain the same sassy look, start by applying a touch of pink blush on the apples of your cheeks, pushing the product up and out toward your temples. Next, brush on a few coats of shimmering golden brown bronzer under your cheekbones, yet following the same pattern as the blush. Swipe the bronzer on your T-zone as well for a uniform feel. The combo of blush and bronzer provides Cruz's face with warmth and drama.
The starlet is known for her remarkable lips and deep brown eyes and she played up the latter in this daring and sassy style. The makeup artist started by rimming her eyes in black eyeliner, spreading the product on thicker and out past her brow lines on top. Petal pink eyeshadow was then swiped on her top lids to the crease lines, followed by shimmering golden product from the crease lines and up to her brows. False eyelashes worked to complete the look and add more drama.
Make sure to try out this style the next time you go on a date with your beau or while heading out for a night on the town with your girlfriends.
