VIDEO: HOT HOLIDAY ECO MAKEUP: Bold, Red Lips – Be the Red Carpet Starlet!

Red Bold Lips – How-To Guide

Inspired by the Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2010 runway makeup, we created this red-carpet starlet look with non-toxic, eco and cruelty-free Ecco Bella cosmetics;

1. Apply foundation and concealer. Red lips deserve a beautiful canvas.

2. Apply a pale shimmery eyeshadow all over eyelids, into the inner corners of eyes and underneath lower lashes.

3. Line top of lid with eyeliner close to lashes.

6. Apply an earthy rose eye shadow very lightly to crease, just to show a hint of color.

4. Dust face with bronzing powder in center of face and along crest of cheek bone.

5. Apply a burgundy rose very lightly on the cheeks.

6. Apply black mascara.

7. Line lips with plum liner.

8. Fill in lips with cranberry lipcrayon.

9. Apply passion lip gloss to bottom lip only.

    Hi Chloé, I was wondering if you might know of any makeup artists )or resources for finding them), in NYC who only use animal- and earth-friendly products? I need to find one for a few photo shoot and eventually my wedding in the city.

    Thanks in advance if you have any suggestions! :)

    Hi Jeanie! It’s Annabella from
    The makeup artist in the video is Tara Pallante – email me at and I’ll give you her contact info! She does only eco makeup and used to be the in-house makeup artist for Ecco Bella.

    Curious hairstylist/makeup artist: what qualifies as “green” and “eco” make up, as opposed to simply vegan/not tested on animals? I like MAC and Urban Decay, but they don’t necessarily market themselves as “green” make up though they are (largely) vegan friendly, whereas Aveda does market itself as “eco” & “green”.
    And I’ve used Aveda make up–and it sucked. Zero color payout, too earthy crunchy like make up that really only works for people who don’t wear it bc it’s barely there, and it doesn’t last for squat.

    I do a lot of bridal and editorial, and that needs to last! Anyone have input on what qualifies as “green” for them and if you’ve used it, how you felt about it?
