For a casual, nonchalant take on an elegant evening do, give your hair a wet, textured look. Start with damp hair and apply a gel like PHYTO Professional Wet Gel, or a serum like Gloss Finishing Serum by Terax Hair Care, or a hairspray like Angel Wings Super-Light Hair Spray from Nick Chavez Beverly Hills through your hair before pulling hair back and away from your face. Our Beauty Director-at-Large, Romy Soleimani, paired the edgy updo with classic colors and fresh skin. Begin with a face oil like Origins Plantscription Youth-renewing face oil, Joanna Vargas Skincare Rejuvenating Serum or Colbert MD Illumino Face Oil for a hydrated, dewy complexion. Opt for a sheer foundation to show off your glowing skin. Apply Boots No7 Soft and Sheer Tinted Moisturiser on areas that are uneven in tone or texture or skip foundation altogether and use a concealer like Flawless Skin Concealer in Level 3 Warm by Prescriptives or Radiant Glow Concealer in Medium by Boots No7 where necessary.
Finish the look with a classic lip in glossy red. Try Boots No7 Stay Perfect Lipstick in Raspberry followed by a coat of butter LONDON Lippy Sheer Gloss in Tipple or butter LONDON Lippy Sheer Gloss in Secret Door.
