Get The Look: Amanda Seyfried’s Classic Red Lips

Amanda Seyfried wowed at the London premiere of her latest film Red Riding Hood in classic red lips, but this can be a tricky look to pull off. Here’s how celebrity makeup artist Mary Greenwell created this sexy makeup.


Prime skin with your favourite primer. Top with liquid foundation – Amanda’s skin is pale so if you want to get the same look use a foundation in a shade lighter than your normal foundation, but don’t go lighter as you’ll look like a ghost.


Line the top lid with dark black eyeliner. Coat lashes with lots of black mascara.


Dust cheeks with a light pink blush.


Paint lips with a deep orange-red lipstick, such as Clé de Peau Extra Rich Lipstick in R2. Or try MAC’s Russian Red lipstick, a universally-flattering classic red.
