With the awards season in full swing, you can’t help but be mesmerized by some stunning beauties that tread the red-carpet with effortless ease. Finding the right outfit for that special night out is of course only half the battle, and what you need is some spectacular make-up to unleash the diva in you. Take a cue from these four lovely ladies who rock the in their glamourous avatars and bring some much needed red-carpet drama to the table. Dick Page, Shiseido’s Make-up Artistic Director, shows us how to shimmer, shine and get red carpet ready.
Notice Katrina’s “shimmering” skin, a signature look on the red carpet. To achieve this, blend an iridescent powder with a matte or satin texture for a look that barely sparkles. Powder your face, neck, décolletage and shoulders. If you have fair skin, opt for the pinks, if its darker, golden beiges are perfect.

For an intense, smouldering look, you can never go wrong with a smokey-eye. Apply eyeliner or kohl to the inside edge of the eyelid along your eye like Aishwarya and blend with some shimmer to make heads turn.

Over your mascara, dust the tips of your eyelashes with an iridescent powder. if you use an eye shadow, add a dot of a pearly white pencil to the centre of the eyelid and smudge with your finger for a mesmerizing gaze like Kareena.

Highlight your brow bones and apply a brown or gold cream eye shadow all across your eye lids for a dare-diva look. Nothing spells red-carpet glamour than a scarlet pout done right. Always line your lips with a lip liner to avoid your lip color from bleeding. Look at Freida Pinto for inspiration who does a glossy red mouth which is totally camera ready.
