We’re pretty much obsessed with the gorgeous scarlet lip look singer Janelle Monae rocked on the red carpet at the recent 2015 Met Gala. So we did a little digging and got the details from the makeup pro who crafted Janelle’s lush lipstick look—celebrity makeup artist Jessica Smalls (that’s her shown here with the star behind the scenes). “I exfoliated her lips and applied a lip balm,” details Smalls about her technique. “Then I lined the lips and slightly filled them in (to give them definition) and accentuated her cupid’s bow.” Next Smalls applied CoverGirl Colorlicious Lipstick in the shade Hot 305. “The emollients in the formula keep her lips gorgeous and smooth and the color… Perfect way to stop the show,” notes the makeup pro. We couldn’t agree more!
