How to Wear Classic Red Lipstick Like Karlie Kloss

While most everyone tuned in to the Met Gala last week to catch a glimpse of who wore what, we set our sights on the awe-inspiring makeup artistry — because, well, makeup. And while numerous looks took our breath away, there was one in particular that left us speechless: supermodel Karlie Kloss and her classic red lip, not to mention those brows! Our questions immediately began to roll in: Who did her makeup? How could we get the same look? So we went digging for answers and got the scoop just for you … 

Makeup Artist: Sir John, L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Makeup Artist

His Inspiration: “Karlie’s dress was the ultimate influence tonight. She wore a very cool design by Brandon Maxwell, so we wanted to keep the look fresh and hip. We went for contrasting textures with her skin and lips and also opted for a very dramatic lash.”

Skin Prep

Step 1. To start, Sir John prepped Karlie’s skin with Youth Code Skin Illuminator All-in-1 Moisturizer SPF 20 to help moisturize and build the ultimate glowing effect.
