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.

Get The Look: Rosamund Pike’s Modern, Cool ‘Gone Girl’ World Premiere Hair

Get The Look Rosamund Pike's Modern, Cool 'Gone Girl' World Premiere Hair

Celebrity hairstylist Kylee Heath worked with Rosamund Pike for the 52nd Annual New York Film Festival Opening Night Gala Presentation and World Premiere of ‘Gone Girl’ on Friday.

When explaining her beauty inspiration Kylee said, “We wanted a modern, cool look to go with Rosamund’s beautiful look.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Starting with damp hair, Kylee sprayed Serge Normant Styling Spray from roots through ends, creating a straight centre part, and blew dry the hair with her Eco Croc Blow Dryer, starting in the front to really set the part. Once the hair was dry she sectioned off the front sections to pin into place last.

Kylee divided the remaining hair into three horizontal sections and put each horizontal section into an individual ponytail, twisting and pinning the little ponytails into mini messy buns with Burman Matte Mini Bobby Pins. Then she took the pinned-away front sections and pulled them back, combing them smooth with a fine-tooth comb. She pinned each section, blending them in with the mini buns. The point was to have contrast – sleek in the front and a textured style in the back.

The look was finished with Leonor Greyl Light to Medium Hair Spray for shine and hold.

Get The Look: Kirsten Dunst’s ‘The Two Faces of January’ New York Premiere Makeup

KIRSTEN DUNSTCelebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff worked with Kirsten Dunst for the premiere of ‘The Two Faces of January’ this week.

Pati shares her beauty inspiration: “For Kirsten’s premiere, I worked off of the very inspiring Chanel Couture dress she wore. It was made of a neoprene type of fabric which gave it structure and had the most beautiful bead work, which is where my palette was drawn from.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Keeping her skin fresh, Pati prepped with Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist and L’Oreal Miracle Blur in the T-zone. After a light finish of foundation, she used Cle de Peau Concealer in Beige to even out the skin.

The brows were given strong definition using Maybelline Define a Brow in Dark Blonde.

For the eyes, she used a matte cream colour shadow on the lid and a matte putty colour shadow in the crease (both by Dior) to even out the lid and give definition. She then applied a matte bone colour on the lid and a matte taupe in the crease (both by Pati Dubroff Perfect Palette).

Next she used a liquid eyeliner from the centre lash line, extending beyond the outer corner with a flick. On top of the liner, she drew another line from the inner corner of the lash line, then extending on top of the black liner (a double liner effect).

This liner was a silver metallic – Chanel Long Lasting Eyeliner in Silver Light. Pati focused the mascara to the outer lashes to keep the inner eye light and bright.

Pati then applied a swirl of Flower Cream Blush in Petunia on the apples of the cheeks.

Finally, the lips got Chanel Rouge Allure in 217 Radieuse, a pale opal pink to mimic the opal beads on the dress.

Get The Look: Rosamund Pike’s ‘Hector and the Search for Happiness’ Premiere Makeup

"Hector And The Search For Happiness" Premiere - 2014 Toronto International Film FestivalCelebrity makeup artist Georgie Eisdell worked with Rosamund Pike to create her look for the premiere of ‘Hector and the Search for Happiness’ held during the 2014 Toronto Film Festival on Sunday.

Georgie said, “Rosamund is a breathtaking beauty so I simply wanted to enhance that, keeping her looking modern and cool.”

Here’s how to get the look.

She prepped Rosamund’s skin with La Mer Soft Cream and La Prairie Platinum Rare Eye Cream. Evening out her skin tone, she used Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick.

For that hint of colour on the cheeks, she then used Korres Cheek Butter in Philia Rose then powdered lightly with La Mer The Powder. She then went over her blush with Laura Mercier Powder Blush in Honey Lust.

Her brows were groomed and slightly enhanced with Laura Mercier Cream Brow Gel in Fair.

Rosamund’s eyes were smoky and soft. To create this, Georgie used Bobbi Brown Shadow in Cool Ivory all over the lid to create a flawless base. Then she used Bobbi Brown Shadows in Grey and Toast for that grey/taupe blend. She blended Rosamund’s eyeshadow from the lid up into the crease and then slightly above the crease, also bringing it under the eye to create the smoky effect. She applied two layers of YSL Faux Cils Mascara in Black to finish off the eyes.

The look was complete with Hourglass Femme Nude Lip in Number 4.

Get The Look: Chloe Grace Moretz’ ‘The Equalizer’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere Modern Updo

Get The Look Chloe Grace Moretz' 'The Equalizer' Toronto Film Festival Premiere Modern Updo

Celebrity hairstylist Gregory Russell worked with Chloe Grace Moretz for the premiere of ‘The Equalizer’ held during the 2014 Toronto Film Festival.

For the beauty’s hair inspiration Gregory said, “We wanted to create an effortless modern updo to accommodate the structured Dior dress.”

Here’s how to get the look.

He began by applying Leonor Greyl Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice on her damp hair through the entire top of her head at the roots. He then rough dried the hair 90% and finished with a ceramic round brush to smooth slightly.

Next he waved her hair with a 1″ iron before combing through with his hands, made a part, and fastened a section right in the front with a duckbill clip. He then pulled the rest of her hair back low and fastened it with a bungee hair tie. Next he rolled the hair into a very loose bun using bobby pins to secure it, making sure it was not too perfect.

Gregory then applied Leonor Greyl Eclat Naturel through the sectioned hair from root to tip for definition. Next he twisted back the section, creating a pompadour shape to the front, and fastened it down to her head with hair pins before pulling a few pieces out around the face, tucking some behind her ears and leaving some out for softness and framing.

To finish, he used Leonor Greyl Laque Souple Hairspray for soft hold.
