Carol's Red Carpet Look #1 — Smoky Eye and Light Lip

This sexy, sultry look takes you from everyday life, to red carpet gorgeous in an instant! And, it's certain to photograph well, since a smoky eye stands out. I've done this look several times on Debra Messing for red carpet events.

The key to this look is a dark, smoky eye, soft cheeks and glossy, light-pink baby-doll lips!

To create the dark, smoky eye use a black eye pencil,sultry shadows and a great mascara!

• Use a LORAC Shadow, like Pewter all over the eye lid (you can smudge it under the lower lash also) to easily create a sexy, shimmery smoky eye. For a more dramatic effect, you can use LORAC shadows wet, and paint them on the lid!

• To create a beautiful pink glossy pout, lip product is key. Try LORAC LOTSA LIP Lip Gloss — not only will it give you a gorgeous smile, but it will make for a fuller, more luscious lips.

Carol's Red Carpet Look #2 — Hollywood Glamour transcends time.

I love this look on Nicole Kidman, and have done this classic eye on her several times.

The key is creating a soft eye with dramatic liner and long, lush black lashes.

The lip should be strong and red — this is the essence of true Hollywood glamour.

• A must-have for this timeless look is LORAC LOTSA LASH Mascara. It's a uniquely rich and creamy mascara that's loaded with nylon fibers, that cling to lashes like mini extensions. It helps lashes curl and instantly appear fuller!

It the sure thing to make your look eye catching! It's easier than applying false lashes — and looks better too!

This is a modern, fashion-forward look that sure to be seen on the red carpet.

The key is glistening eyes and a beautiful warm glow on the cheek,that's complete with a soft, glossy look.

• LORAC offers a great palette to get this look — Maui Wowie. Complete with a bronzer, blush, glosses and warm shadows, it's got everything you need to create this gorgeous, sun-kissed look!
