CELEBRITY MAKEUP HOW-TO: CAREY MULLIGAN'S GATSBY RED LIP FROM CANNES FILM FESTIVAL 2013

It's no secret that we're just a bit obsessed with Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby. Why, just last week, we published our interview with one Ms. Carey Mulligan, who talked about being inspired by Zelda Fitzgerald and the mistresses of F. Scott for her role as Daisy Buchanan in the film. When Mulligan took to a rainy red carpet for The Great Gatsby premiere at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, it was—quite literally—all eyes on her. Perhaps it was her gorgeous soft pink Dior Haute Couture gown... but maybe it was something else.

"I've only once created a red lip for [Carey]," said the actress' longtime makeup artist Georgie Eisdell. "But I loved the idea of contrast with the pale pink dress. I felt strongly about that being the focus of the look... I just thought a red lip would be so striking."

Eisdell paid a bit of homage to the 1920s with a sharply defined lip and a pristine, porcelain complexion. To check out some of the products she used, click to the next slide for our get-the-look. Simply hover over the numbers and shop the products Mulligan wore on the red carpet.
