Red-Carpet Face-Off: Smoky Eyes vs. Red Lips


The Tony Awards are a celebration of the age-old institution of the theater. It’s fitting, then, that two timeless beauty trends—smoky shadow and red lips—were in full force at last night’s awards ceremony. Models Joan Smalls, Emily Ratajkowski, Constance Jablonski, Kendall Jenner, and Bella Hadid all sported different interpretations of a sultry bronze eye (which, in the words of makeup artist Fiona Stiles, is “the chicest thing ever”).

Elsewhere on the red carpet, crimson pouts were spotted on catwalkers like Hilary Rhoda and Grace Mahary, as well as actresses such as Rose Byrne, Kat Dennings, and Vanessa Hudgens, proving that the classic color (also a favorite at last month’s Met Gala) is perfect for any occasion. Marrying the two trends was Jennifer Lopez, who walked the carpet rocking gilded lids and oxblood lips. With makeup looks this foolproof, why choose just one?
