Red Carpet Fashion Awards

2014 MTV Movie Awards - ArrivalsJessica Alba looked like the epitome of spring with her big, bouncy curls and crop top ensemble. The mastermind behind her luxurious locks? Celebrity hair stylist Davey Newkirk.

Davey started by spritzing the John Frieda Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray all throughout Jessica’s damp hair.

Using a large round brush, he blew out her hair while giving her tons of volume and shine.

After her hair was dry, he worked in 2-inch sections and used a large 1 ½ curling iron to give her big, voluminous waves.

To allow the curl to set, he secured each section with a duckbill clip. When her hair was cool, he removed the clips and brushed through the waves with a flat brush.

Using a dollop of John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch-Up Crème, he worked this through her hair for shine and smoothness.

He gave her a deep side part and, to keep her strands in place, added a bit of John Frieda Frizz Ease Clearly Defined Gel and locked everything in with the John Frieda Luxurious Volume All-Day Hold Hairspray.

Hair Trend Spotting MTV Movie Awards Flipped Waves2

The 2014 MTV Movie Awards were filled with Red Carpet surprises, but some of the most talked about looks had more in common than expected.

Nicki Minaj, Jessica Alba, Rita Ora and Kate Upton were amongst the many who flipped their waves to one side. Creating svelte curls may seem difficult, but this trick will help you to easily score the look at home.

Nicki Minaj’s do was smooth at the roots, but a voluminous mane adds drama to the trend. Before drying hair, Jessica Alba’s stylist applied John Frieda Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow- Out. The trick to creating the Old Hollywood curl is to begin with your hair parted down the middle. Divide locks into 1-inch sections curling each piece outward and away from your face.

Save the strands on the top left for last and curl them inward, towards your head. Finally, create a barely there part similar to Rita Ora’s, by flipping the hair on the right over with your fingers to the left. The motion reverses the curl pattern creating soft waves that frame the side of your face.

If you prefer your curls to fall in the opposite direction simply reverse the steps. To polish strands Kate Upton’s stylist smoothed on Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine.

Miranda Lambert ACM MakeupMiranda Lambert was truly the one to watch at the 49th Annual Academy Country Music Awards in Las Vegas.

Her Randi Rahm gown did sparkle, but it was her beautiful skin that really lit up the red carpet. You too can get the Miranda glow by following just a few steps.

The key to glowing skin is to start with healthy skin. Celebrity makeup artist, Karolina Kangas, took care of Miranda’s already gorgeous skin using Dermalogica’s Age Smart line.

The products are a favourite for red carpet skin as they fight off visible signs of aging before they even begin.

The Multivitamin Power Serum was smoothed over Miranda’s skin for a capsulated dose of Vitamins A, C, and E, which together help to firm and smooth the tissues.

Next, Dermalogica Skin Perfect Primer was liberally applied to boost luminosity and radiance.

Following the skin care, Kangas, applied Chanel Cosmetics to further illuminate the skin.

The Lift Lumière Foundation combined with the Concealer Correcteur Perfection create an even canvas and the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour’s versatility brightens and bronzes skin perfecting Miranda’s red carpet glow.

Lupita Nyong’o for Lancôme

Following an epic red carpet run during awards season, which saw the actress experiment with a wide array of lips colours and eye shadows thanks to her makeup artist Nick Barose, I knew it would only be a matter of time before Lupita Nyong’o was scooped up by a beauty brand.

The Oscar winner has been snapped up by French giant Lancôme, joining Julia Roberts, Penélope Cruz, Kate Winslet and Lily Collins as a celebrity ambassador for the brand this September.

Of her new appointment, the ambassadress said “I am particularly proud to represent [Lancôme’s] unique vision for women and the idea that beauty should not be dictated, but should instead be an expression of a woman’s freedom to be herself.”

Lupita will be the first woman of colour to represent the French brand since Dominican model Arlenis Sosa in 2008.

Beauty Trend Spotting The Perfect Pink Lip

Spring usually comes in the form of florals or soft pastels, but this season, it’s all about the hot, poppy pink lip.

We’ve been seeing this flash of flush all over the red carpet-Shailene Woodley, Margot Robbie, Caitlin FitzGerald, Kaley Cuoco, Debby Ryan and Lea Michele have all been donning the gorgeous shade.

For a seriously bold look, go for a semi-matte lipstick, like the NARS Lipstick in Schiap. But first, prime your lips with a waterproof lip liner, like the Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip. This will make your lipstick truly budge-proof. After applying the lipstick, you can opt to add just a bit of gloss in the center of your lips for fullness.

To go a bit sheerer, a lip lacquer is the perfect product. It marries the beautiful pigment of a lipstick as well as the dewy finish of a gloss. Try the YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in Coril Fauve, a lovely, shiny pink. Plus, the gloss is super lightweight, so you won’t feel that icky greasy residue on your pout.

Just want a hint of pink tint? A lip stain is as subtle as it gets! We love Benefit Benetint (you can also use this as blush!) for the ultimate rosy-colored lip look. You can be as heavy-handed or light-handed as you’d like.

2014 PaleyFest - "Mad Men"Jessica Pare’s ethereal waves were styled by LA based hairstylist, Marcus Francis for the PaleyFest 2014 Honouring ‘Mad Men’ event.

Here are his tips on how this classic look can easily be created at home with the same steps and products used on Pare.

Francis says, “On damp hair, mist roots with Suave Volumizing Root Boost Spray.

Once combed through, apply several pumps of Suave Natural Infusion Leave-In Foam, focusing on the mid shaft and ends.” This will add body to tresses and leaves curls feeling soft and weightless.

Francis recommends that you dry hair and smooth strands with a medium size round brush.

“Make a deep side part and using a 3/4″ curling iron, wrap small sections of hair from roots to ends and pin into a pin curl. On both sides brush hair back behind the ear and curl the ends to keep the fullness in the back.”

To lock curls in place, “Use the Touchable Finish Extra Hold Aerosol Hairspray by Suave and let the hair set for 10 minutes in pins before brushing out.

After lightly teasing the top and front brush hair back to blend into the sides.”

“A bobby pin placed vertically behind each ear will secure the hair in place. Smooth out any fly aways with a small amount of the Suave Natural Infusion Awapuhi Strengthening Light Leave-In Cream.”

And voila! You’re instantly a ‘Mad Men’ beauty.
