How To Get Maggie’s Melon Mouth
We talked about her draped, asymmetrical Vionnet dress on Style File yesterday, but today we’d like to delve a little deeper in our quest to understand Maggie Gyllenhaal’s love of the watermelon lip, which she wore yet again at last night’s premiere of Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang in London. “Maggie loves a throwback Hollywood red lip, but isn’t afraid to modernize it by turning up the bright volume,” makeup artist Molly Stern, who frequently works with Gyllenhaal, told us. “She’s not afraid to be bold.” And how—have you seen Secretary? If you want to emanate your own bit of Maggie-style moxie, Stern recommends trying CoverGirl’s Outlast Lipstain in Plum Pout topped off with a sheer lip balm like La Mer’s for a matte-yet-moisturized finish. What do you think about the color?
