Emma Watson is Glamorous in Red at the Bafta Awards

Emma Watson arrived at the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) awards looking like a stunning young lady! She showed up and polished in a red lace dress with her short slicked back hair and flawless makeup with red lipstick to match. Her makeup was created done using Lancôme as she is the new fresh face of the brand. Emma has also been under scrutiny for her short hair with people calling it a lesbian look.  Emma made the decision to chop off her curly hair after she was done filming all eight Harry Potter films, and last year received an official compliment by the Wall Street Journal naming it one of 2011’s most influential hairstyles.  Still though, haters love to hate and Watson was forced to defend her sexuality after chopping it all off because journalists assumed her new look was a lesbian coming out statement.

While her hair makeover led a handful of gossipers to read too much into her fashion-forward do, we think her short pixie cut is perfect for her face and she looks great.  Emma Watson had to insist she’s learned a valuable lesson: “All I can do is follow my instincts because I’ll never please everyone.”

Emma Watson was looking innocent, flirtatious and ravishing all at the same time in with her slick backed pixie cut paired with the red satin lace Valentino dress, black heels, black mascara and the perfect rose red color to match. She showed people she is all grown up now, flaunting the most seductive of lipstick colors right around Valentine’s Day. Nothing says sexy like a bright red lipstick. With neutral, matte facial makeup, sparkling eyes and the red lipstick, the 21-year-old actress went bold looking better than ever. She was definitely the most stunning at the British Academy Film Awards. To go with the deep red lip color, Watson’s cheeks are enhanced with a soft flush of rose blush. Her brown eyes are accented with a dark brush of mascara, but no eye-catching eye shadow is needed, leaving the focus on the red and black makeup and outfit theme. Just like we always say, when sporting red lipstick, keep the other makeup minimal – Emma did this to a tee.  Her slicked back hair away from her face creates a very mature look and also serves to highlight facial features.

How to Makeup: Everything you’ll need to re-create Emma Watson’s red hot, seductive, yet glamorous red carpet makeup look:

Face:  Emma’s face was kept simple so that her lips and eyes would stand out. To achieve this, she began by applying a facial primer all over before blending in Lancôme Teint Miracle Foundation. Lastly, a touch of rouge was buffed onto the apples of her cheeks for a flushed, youthful glowing look.

Eyes:  Apply some concealer under your eyes to cover up any circles or darkness. Then line them with liquid eyeliner and several coats of black mascara.  You want the eyes to look simple but big and bright so several coats of black mascara will do the trick.

Lips: Emma wears a bright red lipstick color called Rouge in Love on her lips to finish off the bold red lipstick look.
