Red carpet masks
A new era of red carpet glamour is in, says Vogue. The Grammys have always been a springboard for red carpet experiments. They were so this year too, despite the mostly virtual format. “…but what impressed most, surprisingly, was the care and attention paid to ensuring everyone’s mask matched their look,” says the magazine.
“First, Megan Thee Stallion took over the red carpet in her tangerine satin gown, which she paired with a face mask in the same shade of orange. (The elastic straps of the mask were wrapped around her ears, which were dripping in Chopard diamonds, of course.) Then, Billie Eilish showed up in a tattoo-print pantsuit along with her brother Finneas, who chose a powder pink tuxedo. Both wore head-to-toe Gucci, with bespoke masks to match,” goes the report.
“Harry Styles’s face mask in the same yellow plaid as his classic Gucci suit would have been enough on its own — but a lilac feather boa was on call to up the glam rock ante a little further. Finally, there was the floral face mask sported by Taylor Swift to match her embroidered Oscar de la Renta gown, which carried all of the romance and whimsy Swift has channeled throughout her most recent records.”
Stain your lips
Having difficulty wearing lipstick with the mask slapped on? Yet don’t want to give up lipstick either? Don’t go heavy duty. Just stain your lips. Wear your lipstick, then dry off the extra bit with a tissue so that it leaves a uniform stain on your lips. To make it last longer, tap the stain with your fingertips to set it in.
