Get The Look: Jessica Alba’s Global Citizen Festival Hair & Makeup

2014 Global Citizen Festival In Central Park To End Extreme Poverty By 2030 - VIP LoungeCelebrity makeup artist Quinn Murphy and celebrity hairstylist Rebekah Forecast worked with Jessica Alba for the 2014 Global Citizen Festival on Saturday (27 September).

Makeup artist Quinn Murphy shared the inspiration behind Jessica’s look: “To complement Jessica’s black Edun dress, I focused her look around black eyeliner while keeping the rest of the makeup bronze and warm. It was 80 degrees in Central Park so a sun-kissed coral look was unseasonably appropriate.”

Here’s how to get the look.
After prepping her skin with moisturizer, Quinn used Chanel Sheer Illuminating Base to create a smooth surface and add lasting power to the makeup. After applying RMS Beauty “Un” Cover-Up in Shade 44, Quinn next applied Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #9 using a damp Beautyblender sponge.

Using the NARS Multiple in Vientiane, Quinn framed her face before applying the bronze cream on the edges of her face to create dimension – under the cheekbones, temples, and under the jawline.

Quinn applied the same NARS bronzer to the centre of her eyelids and blended it upward and out. Next, Estee Lauder Black Gel Eyeliner was applied along the top lash line, making the line thicker on the outer edges and giving it a flick for a cat-eye effect, before applying Armani Eyes to Kill Black Mascara on the top and bottom lashes.

Quinn then used NARS Powder Blush in Deep Throat on the apples of the cheeks before using NARS Powder Bronzer in Casino to subtly contour the cheekbones. It’s softer than a traditional taupe contour shade.

On her lips a sheer peachy-bronze lipstick that was Jessica’s own completed the look.

Rebekah Forecast also shared her inspiration: “My inspiration for Jessica’s hair was the music festival itself. Cool rock chic with a little bit of punk – hence the braid, giving the effect of a buzzed side. I also wanted a high pony to look young and effortless.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Rebekah began with wet hair, applying a volumizing spray at the roots to help create texture and volume. She blow dried the hair with a diffuser to keep the natural movement in the length and ends, but smoothed out the hairline.

Once the hair was dry, she sprayed the whole head with a small amount of dry shampoo to give a second-day feel. This also helps to get a good grip on the hair when pulling it into a high ponytail. She then used a brow mascara on the hair line to tame any flyaways.

Once the ponytail was secured, she sprayed a bit of thermal spray and used a flat iron to create irregular waves throughout the hair. The spray gave the hair great hold as she knew Jessica was going to be outside all day and touch ups would not be possible.

Jennifer Garner In Proenza Schouler – ‘Men, Women and Children’ LA Premiere

Jennifer Garner In Proenza Schouler - 'Men, Women and Children' LA Premiere

Jennifer Garner attended the premiere of ‘Men, Women and Children’ held at the DGA Theater on Tuesday (September 30) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress wore a Proenza Schouler jacquard top in a black and grey contrast palette styled with a black skirt.

The cropped silhouette and high neckline make the top slightly retro in shape, with the skirt giving the look a more conservative finish.

Nice, but instantly forgettable.

Olivia Palermo In Alessandra Rich – CR Fashion Book Issue N°5 Launch Party

Olivia Palermo In Alessandra Rich - CR Fashion Book Issue N5 Launch Party

Olivia Palermo attended the CR Fashion Book Issue N°5 Launch Party during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (September 30) in Paris, France.

The socialite wore a look from Alessandra Rich’s recently presented Spring 2015 collection.

Cut from the designer’s favoured soft lace fabric, I love how the dress marries contemporary elegance with touches of whimsy via the fringed detailing.

While the dress would’ve stood alone for some, Olivia tried to counter that severe high neckline with a stunning gold statement necklace.

Does this work for you or does it come off too matronly, even with the contemporary styling?

Elizabeth Banks In Roland Mouret – 2014 LA’s Promise Gala

Elizabeth Banks In Roland Mouret - 2014 LA's Promise Gala

Elizabeth Banks attended the 2014 LA’s Promise Gala at Universal Studios Hollywood on Tuesday (September 30) in Universal City, California.

Projecting confidence and cheer, I, as always, found myself crushing on her look from head to toe.

Never one to be afraid of colour, the actress wore a Roland Mouret dress cut close to the body with flattering seams and folds and a vivid watercolour print.

As if the dress wasn’t enough of an assured statement, Elizabeth styled the look with an orange Edie Parker clutch and Sophia Webster shimmering metallic-silver pumps with a neon-orange heel.

Did Elizabeth’s accessories kill or enhance the look?

Put me firmly in the later corner. LOVE this from head-to-toe.

Miranda Kerr In Emilio Pucci – CR Fashion Book Issue N°5 Launch Party

Miranda Kerr In Emilio Pucci -  CR Fashion Book Issue N°5 Launch Party

Miranda Kerr attended the CR Fashion Book Issue N°5 Launch Party during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (September 30) in Paris, France.

The model opted for black for the second night in a row, going for a sexy and sheer Emilio Pucci long-sleeved gown from the VIP Collection featuring a deep plunge, cut-out details and romantic ruffles.

I like how the look is prevented from feeling too boho thanks to the red beaded belt; the simple styling also helps sell this look for me.

As we all know, Miranda’s street-style game is better than her red carpet game, but I have found myself loving her recent red carpet looks.

How does this fare for you? Do you prefer this over her Versus Versace look?
