Plus where to buy the other celebs' exact red lipsticks
What’s better than a bargain beauty buy? A bargain beauty buy that is good enough for celebs to wear on the Golden Globes 2018 red carpet.
Last night Gal Gadot’s MUA, Sabrina Bedrani, made her up in a couple of beauty buys you’ll find stocked on the shelves of Boots and Superdrug, no less. Her lipstick, a sheer but colour rich pink-rouge called Bombshell Red, retails for just £7.49 in the UK.
‘We wanted her to look very chic and timeless, but very feminine at the same time,’ she told Allure. ‘It was important to give her a strong eye to really bring out her eyes in a very simple way, along with a very strong lip.’
Gal’s smokey liner is the 2 in 1 Angled Kajal, also Revlon, in shade Onyx. ‘What’s important to me is making Gal look like herself – not a character she’s playing,’ Bedrani added. ‘A more beautiful version of herself, basically.’
The evening wasn’t just political because of actors’ outfit colour of choice, but some of the makeup also symbolised female empowerment.
Gal wasn’t the only star to sport red lipstick; it was a popular choice for a number of A-listers, and we can’t help thinking it’s a nod to the red lipstick created by Elizabeth Arden for suffragettes to wear over 100 years ago.
