Red Carpet Make-up Dos And Don’ts

Dressing (or being dressed) for the red carpet is no easy feat. Making sure your look is creative enough to get attention and classic enough to avoid the critics is rarely accomplished, and once you have the look down, the make-up is a whole other story. It’s easy to become, as Cher Horowitz preaches, a “Monet”: “From  far away it’s ok, but up close it’s a big old mess!”

This year’s VMAs and Emmy’s brought a whole slew of red carpet disasters and show stoppers, but it was the make-up that made the the look a masterpiece or a, well…Monet. Trend-setting makeup expert COVERGIRL is helping cover the best red carpet looks from the VMAs during their ClevverTV Fashion Faceoff: Red Carpet Edition, and calling out the stars who rocked their looks this year. Let’s take our own look at what happened in the beauty department at these fall awards shows.
