Get The Look: Gigi Hadid’s Bronzed Beauty Glamour WOTY Look

While Gigi Hadid stunned in an intricately designed, nude and gold embellished Zuhair Murad gown at this year’s Woman of the Year Awards, it was her elegant bronzed beauty look that tied the whole look together.

Celebrity Makeup Artist Patrick Ta created her look for the evening, using similar bronzed and iridescent tones seen on her couture gown. Having worked with the Maybelline New York spokesmodel for four years, Patrick drew inspiring from her natural beauty, ultimate creating a flattering look that was both youthful and glamorous.

Using Gigi Hadid’s debut collection with Maybelline, here’s how Patrick created this golden goddess-like look:

SKIN: Starting with a freshly cleansed face, Patrick applied a hydrating facial oil to create a luminous and smooth complexion. It is essential to drench the skin with as much moisture to build a foundation that is both dewy and radiant. He followed with Gigi Hadid x Maybelline Liquid Strobe in Iridescent on the high points of the face, which maximizes the glowing effect on the skin, ultimately looking as though it is lit from within.

FACE: In keeping with the fresh look, Patrick skipped the heaviness of foundation and opted for a lighter look with Gigi Hadid x Maybelline West Coast Glow Tinted Primer in Medium Deep. To sculpt and enhance the face, he applied the bronzer and highlighter from the Gigi Hadid x Maybelline Jetsetter Palette, softly contouring the cheeks and mimicking a golden candle-lit glow along the tops of the cheekbones. Using the blush shade from the same Jetsetter palette, Patrick dusted the product onto the cheeks in a soft buffing motion. This diffuses both the color and contour together giving the skin a youthful bronzed finish. To lock in the effortless and dewy look, Patrick recommends misting the face with a setting spray for a lasting luminous finish.

EYES: Using the Gigi Hadid x Maybelline West Coast Warm Eyeshadow Palette, Patrick created a mesmeric look that beautifully framed Gigi’s bright eyes. Beginning with the Monte-Cito shade, he blended the shaded onto the crease of the eyes using Gigi Hadid x Maybelline West Coast Glow Contour Brush. Following with the Gigi Hadid x Maybelline East Coast Glam Eyeshadow Brush, he saturated the eyelids in the Summer-Land shade and blended it upwards to the crease. To enhance both the upper and lower lash lines, Patrick followed by blending Pacific Coast Highway along both and layering the shade Firehouse atop that. To soften the brown liner-like look, he lightly blended Summer-Land along the lower lash line. Finally, to brighten the eyes, apply the shade Blondie in the inner corners for an eye-opening effect. Finish the eyes by giving the lashes a good curl and coating them twice in Gigi Hadid x Maybelline East Coast Glam Fiber Mascara.

BROWS: To achieve that glamorous look of fuller and more defined brows, Patrick applied Maybelline New York Brow Precise Micro Eyebrow Pencil in Blonde along her brows.

LIPS: For the finishing touch to this warm and glamorous look, Patrick chose a universally flattering nude tone. He enhanced the lip shape while providing depth in color with Gigi Hadid x Maybelline East Coast Glam Liner in McCall and followed with Gigi Hadid x Maybelline East Coast Glam Matte Lipstick in the same shade.

Get The Look: Kristen Stewart’s Elle WIH makeup

Celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg worked with Kristen Stewart for Elle’s Women in Hollywood event yesterday evening.

Here’s how to get the look.

“I first prepped the skin using the Chanel Hydro Beauty Micro Cream to give the makeup a great base to lay on.”

“Since we went with such a smokey eye, I started first with Kristen’s eyes. I used the Chanel L’intemporel Eye Shadow Palette with Chanel Le Crayon Khol Eyeliner Pencil in black and lots of layers of Chanel Le Volume Mascara. For her lashes, we used Ardell Lashes in Short Black Trios.

“Then for skin I used one of my all-time favorite products Chanel Vitalumiere Foundation to give a perfect complexion. Then I used the Chanel Correcteur Perfection Concealer. After applying concealer, I added some colour to the cheeks using the gorgeous Chanel Nude Blush Joues Contraste in Jersey and Chanel Soliel De Tan for the bronze glow on the apples of her cheeks”.

“Last but not least I gave Kristen’s lips some natural color by applying a light layer of Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo Lipshine in the shade Panorama.”

Get the look: Karlie Kloss’ desert-inspired warm makeup

Celebrity makeup artist Vincent Oquendo worked with Karlie Kloss for Dior’s Spring 2018 presentation yesterday in Paris, France.

INSPIRATION:
“Karlie’s look for Dior was inspired by the desert, I’m very inspired by those warm orange and beige tones of the desert and the last Dior collection was shown in the desert it felt like a natural fit.”

GET THE LOOK:
“Karlie’s skin was prepped using Dr. Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Acid Serum and Charlotte Tilburys Magic Cream. For creating luminous skin, a combination of Mac Face and Body and NARS Sheer Glow foundation in M2 was used as a base, followed by Serge Lutens Color Correcting Concealer.

To give structure to the cheekbones, Kevyn Aucoin’ Contour Pen in Medium was swiped under the cheekbones and blended into the foundation. To give more depth and warmth to the contour, Dior’s Diorskin Nude Air Tan was overlaid on top followed by Dior-skin Nude Air Luminizer on the high points of the cheekbones to create more dimension and a luminous glow. To give the skin color and classic French girl cheeks, Dior Blush in both Rose Chérie and New Red were lightly swiped over the apples of the cheeks and blended into the cheekbone, giving a rosey flush to the face.

Both blushes were also lightly washed over the eye lids to create a natural, mono chromatic feel. Karlies brows were shaped and feathered using Anastasia of Beverly Hills Eyebrow Powder Palette, and set with Glossier’s Boy Brow in Brown. The look was tied together by filling in the lips with Charlotte Tilburys Lip Pencil in Pillow Talk, topped off with Rouge Dior Liquid Lip in Jungle Matte and Dior Lip Glow.

BET Awards Hair Trend: Platinum Blonde Bobs

It seems as if the celebrities on the red carpet of the 2017 BET Awards were trying to figure out if blondes really do have more fun. Karrueche Tran, Blac Chyna, Cardi B and Tamar Braxton all showed up to Sunday night’s awards show rocking a platinum blonde blunt bob.

The bob cut is definitely a mane trend for summer 2017 as we’ve noticed countless other celebs sporting the cut in recent months. Specially, the long list of a-listers that rocked the style at last month’s Met Gala – from Selena Gomez’s silky bob to Kim Kardashian’s sleek take on the look, to the blonde wig that Donatella Versace requested that Kylie Jenner wear, the bob dominated the event. So it’s no surprise that Karrueche, Blac Chyna, Cardi B and Tamar Braxton all continued the trend at this year’s BET Awards.

As for the platinum blonde take on the cut?

The bright shade is a summer staple and these four ladies really brought the heat. Celeb hair stylist Tokyo Stylez was responsible for transforming Tran’s tresses as with the help of a platinum wig with tousled waves and side part. The stylist is known for his work with hair pieces and has created custom pieces for various stars like Kylie and Kendall Jenner and Nicki Minaj.

There are many other stylists who create amazing wigs such as Freedom Couture, Hair by Him, Chrissy Bales and A-List Hair.

Since lightening your hair is an intense process, it’s best to leave it to the pro’s but to achieve this trending hue, use Olaplex Hair Perfector three step treatment combined with L’Oreal Paris Feria Absolute Platinum and for maintenance Matrix Total Results Color Obsessed So Silver Shampoo and Balmain Hair’s Ash Toner leave-in treatment that protects and softens the hair and cuts out brassy and yellow tones.
