Red carpet style
She has rocked the red carpet every time, whether she was in her early twenties or at her present mid forties. Right from a young spinster to a hot mother, the red carpet always felt her impact. One of the most stunning among these had been when she stepped into the Muhammad Ali Celebrity Fight Night. She created a charisma in her midnight blue satin dress. Similarly notable was her appearance in the recent red carpet event when was elegantly carrying her four months baby bump and reported to Oprah that she was pregnant with her boyfriend Gabriel Aubrey’s baby.
This American actress is equally experimental in her casual attire as well. She really likes to keep it simple when she is in her leisurely mood. Thus, her leisure mood is best expressed in her flat sandals, simple tees and a pair of basic jeans. Occasionally she adds a perk in this look in her famous pixie haircut to highlight her “Just waken up from bed look” and perfect bone structure that is characteristic of an American supermodel look. Her other accessories include a pair of aviator lenses or a neutral leather bag from the designer Rebecca Minkoff Nikki Hobo. A leather jacket or a shot tank underneath looks equally chic on Halle Berry, who looks like a teen girl even in her forty-four years of age.
Every hairstyle, be it a well-groomed one or an irregular, very short, careless haircut, Halle Berry looks awesome in every style. Even her trademark boyish spikes look most feminine in this stunning American actress. But you if are a fan of Halle Berry you must remember to stay away from the crunchy, gelled up look as this is not the typical Halle Berry look. You can opt for the Halle Berry spikes by cropping long and short spikes throughout your hair; the long ones will be supported by the short ones as they stand on your head. Apply medium hold hair styling gel meant for imparting textured look. Use it in your 80 percent towel dried hair. Follow one direction and spread the gel evenly, all along the hair length. Do not use gel immediately after you step out of the bathroom in dripping hair or else the spikes will look too hard, not like the soft, girlish ones as that of Halle Berry. Now set the spikes with your fingers and blow-dry them. Further, add pliable hot wax to make the spikes permanent.
Other than the characteristic style, you can try out other Halle Berry hairstyles too which is changed with every passing year for this American Hollywood beauty.
Medium length tresses cut into uniform, razor trimmed layered, spooky edges, and side bangs had been a style of Halle Berry. Probably this hairstyle looks great on almost all women, with any hair length, extending below the shoulders and demands the least maintenance.
Shorter hairstyles, featuring highlights and streaks of different tones and different cuts are also famous among those Halle Berry fans who have bob cuts or shorter hair, irrespective of the thickness.
A nice hair updo, reflecting the much sought after feminine beauty is a style that is sported by the actress in many of the red carpet events and award functions or prom events. You can even experiment with different hair updos of Halle Berry based on the length of your hair.
Halle Berry is a fountain of youth. Even her worst critics do have to agree on this. However, the question, whether she owes this to her inborn quality or her pleasing personality or by virtue of some specific makeup or cosmetic treatments remains a mystery. Whether her mismatched and too huge earrings in comparison to her very short haircut or her noticeably pink blush or her nude, dry lips, nothing appears to fall out of place. However, there are certain features that segregate Halle Berry makeup form that of the other Hollywood celebrities.
For eyes, the actress always opts for different shades of brown, specifically darker shades for the crease of the eyes, neutral brows for the base and glimmering toffee tones with hint of gold and copper shimmers for the eyelids. She uses brown, coffee colored lash liners and black mascara as her finishing touch to open up her expressive eyes.
The healthy shine imparted in her cheeks is due to the cream based facial makeup products that she prefers. Colors she often goes for in case of the blusher are beige and warm pink. She further accentuates the lips by lining them with creamy lip pencils and keeping the base nude, with only a hint of natural or pink lip-gloss for that no makeups look.
The red carpet or the casual styles, whatever she flaunts, are essentially designer outfits and jewelry. She has been spotted wearing attires of True Religion, 7 for All Mankind, Aaneta, Bellekat, Christie Martin Jewelry, Ecoganik, Guy Baxter, Tom Ford, Rebecca Norman Jewelry, Tricia Fix, For Love and Liberty, Mickey Lynn Designs, etc.
