Thandie Newton looks hotter in red. Discuss.
Tue, 10 February 2009 3:19PM
Just as I was saying that Thandie Newton didn’t need distracting makeup like, oh I don’t know, bright red lipstick, she comes out in this multicoloured party dress paired with none other than a BANGING BRIGHT RED LIP and matching smirk that screamed ‘Ha! And you thought I was all boring and natural. I don’t think so suckers.’ Trust!
Here she is at the Elle Style Awards in London:
This woman is the queen of understated elegance. Even though she's sporting this nuts shade of red lippy (that I'm IN LOVE with by the way), she still looks all chic and elegant. She doesn't try too hard, that's her secret.
Her skin is kept really radiant and glossy. Like she's just done a pilates class and is a little flushed but not in a gross sweaty way, more of a healthy, glowy way.
As for her eyes, well, they're practically nude. Just wrapped in a subtle sheath of mascara, they're the hairy equivalent of a kaftan in summer. Thinly veiled yet still totally glitz. We've told you many, many times Primpers, that if you want to pull of a red lip, like this, you need to keep your eyes bare. There are some exceptions of course, we have seen the smoky eye and red lip combo coming out of the shows, but in general, for those rare nights when you don’t have a runway to gallop down or a red-carpet to prance across, it’s best to have just one focal point rather than two.
Personally, I prefer this look. I know that I was raving about her yesterday saying that I loved how natural she was and how she didn’t need bright, distracting shades of makeup, but now, after seeing this pic, I think that I might have been lying. She looks hotter here.
What do you think. Agree? Disagree?
