I'm not sure if you've noticed, but Megan Fox has really been killing it in the fashion and beauty departments lately. Not that she hasn't always killed it, mind you, but lately, our fingers are working overtime screenshotting all of her cool AF vibes. Remember her self-proclaimed "Versace Hogwarts uniform" from a couple of weeks back? We still can't get it out of our minds. It was that perfect.
Of course, one of our favorite ways to accessorize a bad-ass outfit is an even cooler makeup aesthetic, and Fox hasn't left us disappointed. In fact, while on set for her upcoming horror film, Till Death, she snapped this pic—starring the juicy red lip of juicy red lips—which has garnered nearly 900,000 likes on Instagram. So, being the huge beauty snoops and Fox stans that we are, we obviously had to get every last detail. One of our favorite celebrity makeup artists Tobi Henney frequently works with Fox, and she also happens to be the on-set artist responsible for the aforementioned look. She describes it as "classic red glam," and we were lucky enough to get the full application and product breakdown from her. Keep scrolling! Every iota of intel you need to re-create the actor's stunning red-lip moment is just below.
Step #1: Prep Your Skin
"I also wanted to give her skin a hint of golden glow, so I used the Victoria Beckham Beauty Cell Rejuvenating Priming Moisturizer in Golden ($145)," adds Henney.
Step #2: Perfect Your Base
If you have certain areas where you might want more camouflage action (think the under-eyes, a pimple, etc.), Henney recommends using a soft, malleable concealer. She used the above formula from Nars on Fox.
To maintain Fox's signature glow while still keeping excess oil from creeping in, Henney suggests powdering but being strategic with your placement and formula. For instance, she suggests only powdering the T-zone and using a high-quality option like her favorite from La Mer.
Step #3: Dial Up Your Warmth and Glow
Step #4: Add Some Eye Smolder
First things first, to prep Fox's eyes, Henney used MAC Cosmetics' Groundwork Paint Pot ($23) all over the actor's lids. Try choosing a shade that's similar to your natural skin tone to create a nice base.
To re-create the actor's warm and earthy eye shadow look, Henney says to softly blend the matte-brown tone from Dior's Amber Neutrals Palette ($49) into the crease of the eye before adding the golden eye shadow tone all over the lid. Then, smudge a little of the warm brown tone on the lower lash line to create a nice balance between the upper and lower lid.
Step #5: Define Your Brows
"Use Benefit Cosmetics' Goof Proof Brow Pencil ($24) to create a beautiful brow," notes Henney.
To keep your work in place, do like Fox and Henney, and use a clear brow gel to keep everything move-proof. The Nars formula that Henney used is no longer available, but we're obsessed with this new drop from Kosas.
Step #6: Give Yourself a Rosy Flush
"On Megan's cheeks, I used Ilia's Multiple Stick in A Fine Romance ($34) for a rosy cheek look," Henney tells us.
Step #7: Nail That Lip
Last but certainly not least, apply Bare Minerals' BarePro Longwear Lipstick in Cranberry ($20). Use a tissue to blot the color and reapply for lipstick longevity.
Step #8: Top It Off With an All-Over Glow
Henney's parting tip: "To complement this classic makeup look, use Elle Effect's self-tanning mousse for a gorgeous bronzed body!"
