Never will you see a photo of Sofia Vergara in the red carpet looking drab. From her clothing, to her hairstyle, to her vibrant makeup, the Columbian hottie knows what it takes to get heads turning. Don’t think you can achieve that same sultry look? Think again. With some tips from the experts in the hair and makeup industry, you too can achieve Sofia’s coveted look with a few easy, quick steps.
To achieve the same smooth, silky locks that Sofia boasts, start by using a shampoo and conditioner formula that suits your specific hair type (ie. for thick, thin, oily, dry, combination hair, to name a few). When the hair is damp, create a center part, and blow dry the top front section away from your face, using a boar bristle round brush. Roll the section of hair under itself and use pins to keep it in place while it cools and sets.
Blow dry the rest of your hair in 2-square inch sections each, then pin each in place while they cool down. After all sections have cooled, remove the pins, and brush the hair. Create a slight bend to the shorter front layers using a 1.5″ curling iron, then finish by spraying all over with a light hairspray mist.
Sofia tends to have dramatic eyelashes and va va voom red lips. Before you apply any makeup, use a short-haired foundation brush to buff the foundation of your choosing into your skin. Add a small amount of bronzer to the cheekbones, forehead and down the length of your nose to give you a sun-kissed glow. Add a bit of blush to the apples of your cheeks to give you a youthful, warm look.
Apply a dark eyeshadow along the lash line in place of eyeliner. Then apply two or three coats of waterproof mascara in black, giving your eyes a dramatic look. Make sure to apply the mascara to your bottom lashes too in order to give you a bolder look.
On the lips, apply a long-lasting lip product in candy apple red. To moisten the lips, add a touch of gloss on top in order for the lips not to look too dry. Line the lips with a pencil in a matching colour to add definition and prevent the lip colour from bleeding.
Voila! You’ve just gone through all the steps that Sofia’s own makeup artists take in order to create the sexy, sultry look of the television star!
