It takes a lot of guts to hit a red carpet (especially in Los Angeles) hiding all of your hair under a knit cap. Sure, the occasional hipster can pull off wearing a hat with some hair exposed… But, hiding every last hair makes us wonder if Meagan Good's hairstylist is crying over a margarita in some bar in Hollywood for botching Meagan's hair for the premiere of Justin Bieber's Believe.
Where the Anchorman 2: Legend Continues star's hairstylist might have failed, her makeup artist prevailed. Wearing just a sheer wash of cranberry eye shadow, mascara and a fiery red statement lip, Meagan's makeup was simply subtle perfection.
While for the most part Meagan's skin looked amazing, we did see a bit of shine on her t-zone that could have easily been prevented. Perhaps the knit cap was making her sweat? No bueno.
Get the Look: If your skin is prone to oiliness and/or shine like Meagan's, start by treating your skin with an oil-absorbing, mattifying mask like Clayspray Mattifying Red Clay Masque. Then, apply an oil-reducing moisturizer like Naturopathica Rosemary Oil-Reducing Moisturizer, followed by a mattifying primer like Lorac POREfection Mattifying Face Primer.
Next, apply an oil-free, shine-stopping foundation like Clarins Ever Matte SPF 15 Skin Balancing Foundation. Tip: For more coverage, apply foundation with a sponge. For less, use your fingers.
After applying concealer under the eyes and covering any imperfections, use concealer or primer to prep the upper eye area. Next, apply a flesh or cream-colored eye shadow to the entire upper eye area.
Then, with a blending brush (you don't want to pick up too much eye shadow) dipped in a cranberry eye shadow like MAC Eye Shadow in Cranberry, sweep the brush across the lids and slightly above your creases. Soften and diffuse color by blending in small circles. Complete eye makeup by applying 2-3 coats of defining, volume-building mascara like MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Extravagant Mascara.
Next, to copy Meagan's naturally flushed-looking cheeks, use a sheer powder blush that won't clog your pores. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush works great. Apply blush in the apples of your cheeks with a blush brush, pulling upwards along your cheekbones for an extra lift.
Now, for the pièce de résistance… To get Meagan's perfect pucker, start by scrubbing lips with a nourishing, conditioning lip exfoliator like BITE Beauty Whipped Cherry Lip Scrub. After lining lips with a matching or flesh-colored pencil, apply a creamy, long-lasting red lipstick with pink undertones like Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in 69.
While Meagan's makeup may have initially distracted us from solving the mystery of "What happened to Meagan's hair?" we do have our theories—1. Her newfound fame from Anchorman 2 made her go full-on Britney Bitch a la 2007 and shave her head 2. Since she was attending Justin Bieber's movie premiere, she didn't want to compete with his coif. Regardless of why she did it, we hope Meagan will feel more secure next time she has a bad hair day and leave the hat at home. We promise we won't judge… KIDDING!
