Episode 6 of Bravo's Project Runway proved that while the competition is fierce, the beauty looks are even fiercer. This week's Viewer’s Verdict, presented by Maybelline, provided beauty enthusiasts with seven glamorous makeup styles — all of which were inspired by the unique accessory each contestant had to incorporate into their designs. Ultimately, it was Prajjé Oscar Jean-Baptiste's beauty look that took home the most votes in this week's contest, with his model flaunting the most striking red lipstick — courtesy of Maybelline New York Made for All in Red for Me.

The crimson lipstick was the perfect contrast to Prajjé's model’s teal gown. The bright red really popped against the light green hues of the gown, creating a striking color scheme for the overall look.

To complete the beauty look, the lipstick was complemented by tasteful, natural-looking eye makeup and bold brows. The subtle eye and face makeup let the lip color steal the show, and made for a versatile look that can easily be dressed up or down. 

Below, Maybelline New York makeup artist Vincent Oquendo explains three easy steps to follow if you want to recreate this runway-inspired style at home.


Step 1: To achieve Prajjé's model's makeup, apply Maybelline New York  Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation all over the skin, and set the foundation with Maybelline New York Banana Powder for a matte, velvet-like finish. Then, use Maybelline New York City Bronzer to sculpt the cheekbones, followed by Maybelline New York Cheek Heat Blush in Nude Burn to add the finishing touches to the face. 

Step 2: Next, use Maybelline New York TattooStudio 36HR Waterproof Brow Pencil on brows to create a defined and long-lasting impact. Apply the shade Artist from the Maybelline New York Nudes of New York Eyeshadow Palette all over each lid. Complete the eye makeup by coating lashes from root to tip with generous strokes of Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara.

Step 3: Finally, to finish the look, line lips with the Maybelline New York SuperStay Ink Crayon in Own Your Empire. Complete the look with a bright layer of Maybelline New York Made for All in Red for Me
