Get the Look: High Updo and Red Lips

Style and Beauty By Mercedes Sanchez

50 Mas Bellos 2014

 

After styling the winner of the Colgate contest for People's annual 50 Mas Bellos party, I quickly shopped around for a dress of my own.

I then stopped by a new favorite beauty salon, owned by a Dominicana, to get my hair done. After one of the stylists blow dried my hair, the owner Giovanny, created this high updo in just a couple of minutes.

Because my hair is somewhat thick, Giovanny created a ponytail so that it would stay in place throughout the entire night.

How to create this hairstyle in 5 easy steps:

Giovanny Jorge says, after your hair is blown out completely straight, do the following:

1 - Divide the top portion of the hair in two sections forming a triangle.

2 -Tie the two sectioned portions of your hair in a pony tail towards the back.

3- Leave the rest of the hair down.

4- Go back to the top and  tease the hair that was down with hairspray.

5- Put the hair back and pin everything together. Wrap some of the hair around the pins in order to cover the pins.

Red lips for the red carpet

Just like my last red carpet event, I did my own makeup. I went for a natural look, but opted for a bright red lip. I used Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick in 'impassioned.'
