Get the Look: Side swept curls and Orange Lip
Orange Lips and Side swept Curls By Mercedes Sanchez
For last week's red carpet look, I went for an orange lip and side swept curls.
I was a little nervous to try the orange-lip trend, but I found a subtle shade that will work well with most skin tones.
I stopped by Sephora and purchased NARS Timanfaya Satin Lip Pencil.
Its creamy texture allows it to go on easy and last long. I love the fact that it comes in form of a jumbo crayon-like design.

Side Swept Curls
I did the makeup on my own, I stopped by Gioje Salon in Manhattan to get my hair done.
I was inspired by Sandra Bullock's Oscars 2014 hairstyle.
We started with a gentle wash and dry. Then the hairstylist pinned my hair to the side and created the waves with a curling iron.
I left the beauty salon with bobby pins and removed them minutes before heading out the door.
For the nails, I wore OPI's Toucan Try It If You Can:
