Georgie Eisdell worked with NARS to create Carey's beauty look, which was a step out of the actress's makeup comfort zone.

“It’s a big statement for her and we wanted to keep this look as modern as possible,” says Georgie. “I’ve only once created a red lip with her, but I loved the idea of contrast with the pale pink dress. I felt strongly about that being the focus of the look. I knew I wanted to go bold when I saw the dress. I thought a red lip would be so striking.”

To achieve the look, Georgie lined Carey's lips with NARS Jungle Red Lipliner and filled in her pout with the accompanying Jungle Red Lipstick. NARS Sex Appeal Blush was applied to the apples of her cheeks and the line's Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder set the look, giving the starlet an ethereal glow.
