Icon-Inspired: The Grace Jones Red Lip

Rocking a face as fierce as Grace Jones’ takes more attitude than effort. Andy Warhol’s personal muse birthed an era of androgynous glam identified by two iconic features: a bold face and a flat top fade.  

Achieving Jones’ goth eye, vampy lip and high fade requires just a few simple tips:

1. PRIME TIME: To achieve the truest hue, prime your lids with MAKE UP FOR EVER Lift Concealer

2. TRACE IT: Using COVERGIRL Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner in ‘Black Onyx’, create an outline of an extended cat eye or the corner of a square (like Grace). Using a round-tip eye shadow brush, use MAKE UP FOR EVER Eyeshadow in Black 4 to shade in your outline, keeping the deepest concentration near the lash line and gradually lightening toward your eyebrow

3. PUCKER UP: Indulge in a deep red lip courtesy of Kate Moss Lipstick Collection by Rimmel London. Try “01 – Deep Brick Red”, but first line lips to perfection with a crimson lip liner

4. STAY SLICK: For those not ready to bare the real buzz, do a sassy variation of Jones’ flat top fade. Short-haired divas can slick up their edges with Carol’s Daughter Macadamia Hold & Control Smoother, and use a firm spritz and a low-heat setting blow dryer to tease and fluff up front tresses. —Kimberly Walker
