Wherever Cara shows up, she is the boldest of all. The deep wine burgundy lipstick turned the classic cat eye into a vampy look. A soft rose gold shimmer covered Cara’s eyelids and that was the only soft point in her look. As always, the model’s signature brows were the center of attention. This time they were competing with her grayish ultra short hair that is a follow up to her shaved hairstyle she had not so long ago.
