Suicide Squad? Well, looking at Cara Delevingne’s face, consider Us dead! (In the best way.) The British model turned actress, 23, rocked the sultriest makeup palette on the red carpet at the NYC premiere of Suicide Squad on Monday, August 1, and Us Weekly has all the exclusive details.
Celebrity makeup artist Romy Soleimani wanted to give the Rimmel London ambassador (clad in a studded frock with over-the-knee Christian Louboutin boots) a “Helmut Newton with a little glam rock” look. To do that, she focused on two of her famous features: her eyes and her lips. “It was important for this look to have a full, matte, red pout,” Soleimani, who also works with Kim Kardashian and Bella Hadid, tells Us Weekly. “I started with Rimmel London Provocalips 16HR Kissproof Lip Color in Kiss Me You Fool pressed into the lips, and followed it with Rimmel London The Only 1 Lipstick in Call Me Crazy.” By using Kiss Me You Fool as the base, the makeup artist says Delevingne’s lips “lasted all night!”
And when it came time to create those dramatic peepers, Soleimani turned to three hero products. “I used Rimmel London Exaggerate Auto Waterproof Eye Definer in Earl Grey all over the eye. Then I used Rimmel London Exaggerate Auto Waterproof Eye Definer in Blackest Black on the lash line, in the crease and inside the eye,” she tells Us. Soleimani coated the Saint Laurent ambassador’s lashes with Rimmel London Scandal’Eyes Mascara, and for the finishing, ultimate rocker touch? “I used theatrical silver glitter on top” for a boost of shimmer, she says.

As for Delevingne’s flawless, sun-kissed complexion, the makeup artist used Rimmel London BB Cream in Medium to even out her skin tone, topped by Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation in Sand. She finished with Rimmel London Kate Sculpting & Highlighting Kit, applying the deepest shade to contour and the pink for a slight blush.
