Fifty Shades Freed, the final installment of Fifty Shades of Grey franchise has finally hit theatres. And while Daily Vanity doesn’t care that much for the passionate scenes, all we wonder about is how great Anastasia Steele’s lips look in every scene. That’s when we went to do some research.
According to the head of Fifty Shades Freed‘s makeup department, Evelyn Noraz, she wanted Anastasia to take up a more “classic, modern, and French” look as Christian Grey’s new wife. This is why her makeup look is significantly more muted compared to the bold and vivid looks in the previous installment.
For instance, in a fresh-out-of-bed scene, Dakota Johnson (who played lead character Anastasia Steele) was wearing lipstick, said Noraz to Refinery29. She was wearing Glossier’s Generation G in the shade Like. Noraz said that the light, powdery pink shade was used to enhance the natural lip colour of Johnson on set. The Glossier Generation G lipstick is only available on the Glossier website, and retails at USD18.
Another nude colour was also used in the iconic wedding scene. Unfortunately for us, it was the YSL Beaute Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick in #7, a shade that is no longer available. But if you’re looking for something similar, consider other nude shades in the same formula – there are quite a number of them. The product retails at SGD52 in Singapore.
If there’s one thing we can learn from Anastasia Steele, it would be that we can rock lipsticks of any price point (yes, pack of arsenal with different ones) and that nude looks great whether it is matte or has a touch of shimmer.
