Think you can apply makeup quickly? Not as fast as Rick DiCecca. This past Friday, the Estée Lauder global makeup stylist set a new Guinness World Record for the most lipstick applications in one hour. The previous record of 180 applications had been set earlier this year in Madrid, but DiCecca broke it with a whopping 303 painted puckers. To find out how he did it, keep reading.
Model Liu Wen was recently named one of the new faces of Estée Lauder — the first Chinese spokesperson in the brand's history — and she looked gorgeous at the Met Ball. To complement her sparkling dress, Liu's makeup artist, Rick DiCecca, gave her a subtle glow. The sexy look involves smudgy black eye makeup, a sheer bronzer, and nude lips. To re-create the look, apply the brand's eye pencil in Onyx liberally, and smudge to blend. Sweep on Bronze Goddess Soft Shimmer Bronzer for a warm glow, and top off with the Powder Blush in Radiant Kiss. Finish off the look with Volume Lifting Mascara in Black and some Pure Color Gloss in Perfect Nude (available in June). As far as getting the rest of Liu's looks, we're still researching how to luck out in the genetic lottery.
