Inside Cara’s ‘sexy vampire look’

Makeup artist Molly Stern has spoken about how she created Cara Delevingne’s face for the star’s Paper Towns red carpet appearance on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old attended the red carpet debut of the new movie in New York City on Tuesday night, which is her first lead role in a major motion picture.

Makeup artist Molly Stern provided Cara with a vampire-like edge by making her lips pop and leaving other areas of the muted in comparison.

"Cara's look was based around her bold red lip," Molly explained to Us Weekly magazine. "The rest of her look was clean and bright, with just a twinge of sexy."

Molly utilised nothing but Yves Saint Laurent products on Cara’s face for the event.

The bold pout was created with the YSL Rouge Pur Couture in #55 lipstick.

Molly enhanced the supermodel-turned-actress’ complexion with the use of Le Teint Touche Eclat in addition to the Touche Eclat pen, which lightened the skin around her eyes. Cara’s face was primed with Touche Eclat Blur Primer and she completed the visage foundation by adding Blush Volupte #7 to the star’s cheeks to layer the look with a rosy glow.

Cara’s eye makeup for the evening was a mixture of two shades, Couture Mono Eyeshadow in #11 and #12. The stunning blonde’s signature eyebrows were enhanced with Couture Brow #2 and her eye look was finished off with Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils in #1.

Cara wore a stunning silver sequinned mini dress designed by Saint Laurent to the Paper Towns premiere. The garment had a peek-a-boo feature which showed off a hint of cleavage.

Her hair for the evening was a loose braid, with strands free-flowing across the front of the star’s face.

“The style was all about effortless, barely there waves, but with an edge,” L’Oréal Paris celebrity hairstylist Mara Roszak told Hollywood Life of the hairstyle inspiration. “There was a detailed element to the look that still had a casual vibe to it — a fresh take on a braid. Cara’s gown and makeup were so glamorous, so the hair gave it that cool-girl finish.”
