Rooney Mara's Red Lipstick Look

Found! Rooney Mara's Gorgeous, Just-Bitten Lipstick Shade

With her perfectly creamy skin, piercing eyes, and ebony strands, Rooney Mara looked almost like a present-day rendition of a Robert Palmer girl at yesterday's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo premiere. But whereas Palmer's muses wore patent-red lipstick and heavy-handed blush and foundation, Mara's look was clean, fresh, and surprisingly simple to re-create.

"The dress was so magnificent, we just decided that she needed to look effortless, and that the lip should look 'bitten,'" explained Chanel celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee. To bring the concept to life, Lee applied the brand's Rouge Allure Velvet Lip Colour in La Somptueuse ($32), a brownish-red, as a stain. The apples of the cheeks were given a creamy glow with Kevyn Aucoin's Tresbelle blush, and black eyeliner and mascara — no eye shadow was used at all — completed the modern-classic palette.
