Kat Dennings amfar makeupCelebrity hairstylist Gregory Russell and celebrity makeup artist Beau Nelson worked with Kat Dennings for the amfAR LA Inspiration Gala on Wednesday (October 29).

HAIRSTYLIST GREGORY RUSSELL

On his beauty inspiration Gregory said, “We decided on a high-shine wave set to complement Kat’s gown tonight.”

Here’s how to get the look.

On damp hair, he applied R+Co Chiffon Styling Mousse through the roots and lengths of the hair. He then blew it out with a ceramic round brush and pin curled each section, securing with clips. He then curled each section with a 1 inch curling iron and again pin curled to cool.

After hair was cooled, starting at the nape, he softly brushed out each section with a Mason Pearson Popular Brush. Once brushed all the way through, he sprayed Serge Normant Dry Oil through the lengths and brushed again until his reached his desired shape.

Finally, he pinned the waves where he wanted them and set the style with R+Co Outer Space Flexible Hairspray.

Sharing his beauty inspiration, Beau said “Kat really is a natural beauty, so I wanted to accentuate that. The inspiration for this look came from the beautiful colours in the skin from classical paintings. I wanted to heighten the beautiful skin colours I see naturally in Kat’s face and take them to a surreal level.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Her skin was kept matte using Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation on a flat brush. He used Cinema Secrets Concealer under the eyes and on any redness, and powdered the skin with La Mer Loose Powder.

Bobbi Brown Blush in Pretty Coral gave a soft natural flush to the cheek and sculpted the cheekbone and jawline using Surratt Blush in Grisaille to contour.

Her eyelids are naturally a really pretty peachy-brown, so he mixed two shades of blush from NARS (Silvana and Gina) and washed them (using a soft domed shadow brush) over her eyelids, blending them to slightly above the crease of her eyes to give a heightened sense of colour.

On her lips he applied Tom Ford Lipstick in Casablanca, blotted it, and then dusted on a tiny bit of loose powder to make it matte.

Get The Look: January Jones’ Effortless, Touchable Hair

Opening Of Restoration Hardware West Hollywood The Gallery On Melrose AvenueCelebrity hairstylist Clariss Rubenstein worked with January Jones for the opening of Restoration Hardware West Hollywood The Gallery on Wednesday (October 22).

Sharing her inspiration, Clariss said, “I wanted January’s hair to look effortless and touchable. Her hair is super healthy and shiny right now and I wanted to enhance that.”

Here’s how to get the look.

After blow-drying January’s hair with just a few sprays of Bumble & Bumble Thickening Spray, Clariss used a one-inch-barrel curling iron and wrapped the hair in different directions so that it had movement and didn’t look too uniform.

To finish the look she used Unite Texturiza Spray, which I love (it’s a dry shampoo, a texturizer, and light hairspray all in one), at the roots only. She also added a few sprays of Oribe Shine Light Reflecting Spray to the ends.

Get The Look: Dianna Agron’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Event Hair & Makeup

Dianna Agron - CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund EventCelebrity makeup artist Georgie Eisdell and celebrity hairstylist Christian Wood worked with Dianna Agron for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event on Tuesday.

MAKEUP ARTIST GEORGIE EISDELL

Georgie explains her beauty inspiration: “For Dianna at the CFDA/Vogue event, I wanted a clean and effortless look that was modern.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Georgie started by prepping Dianna’s skin with IS Clinical Hydra Cool Serum and Orlane Super Moisturizing Light Cream.

Next she evened out Dianna’s skin with Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick. To give her skin a beautiful glow, she powdered with La Mer The Powder and then used Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette on the high points of her face to give her that perfectly illuminated skin.

On the apples of her cheeks, Georgie used Tom Ford Cheek Color in Frantic Pink.

On Dianna’s eyes, she washed over her lids with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette very lightly to create a glow, then applied two layers of YSL Faux Cils Mascara in Black and added individual Stilazzi Lashes for extra length and depth. She defined Dianna’s brows with Laura Mercier Brow Definer in Warm.

Finally, Georgie used NARS Lip Lacquer in Baby Doll for the perfect pout.

HAIRSTYLIST CHRISTIAN WOOD

Christian explains his inspiration: “I wanted to give the vintage-feeling dress a modern, sleek, tougher edge. A slicked-back deep side part with a simple low twist at the back was what we decided on.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Dianna washed and conditioned her hair with Fekkai Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner. This gave a smooth, moistened base to the hair to make it malleable to work with.

While the hair was wet, Christian added a very generous amount of Oribe Gold Lust Serum throughout and used a tail comb to place the deep side part.

Next he used a Mason Pearson Brush to brush the hair as tightly as possible into a low ponytail and secured it with an elastic. He then twisted the ponytail into a knot at the nape of the neck and secured it with bobby pins to hold in place. Oribe Superfine Hairspray smoothed out any flyaways and gave the hair a subtle hold.

Lastly, he placed Fekkai Sheer Sculpt Gel on the tip of his finger and gently layered the product on the part and various other sections of the hair. This added a form of highlight that picked up under the light and gave a glossier, sleeker appearance.

Get The Look: Odeya Rush’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Event Hair & Makeup

CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Event Hosted By Diane von Furstenberg, Reese Witherspoon, Mark Holgate, And Lisa LoveCelebrity hairstylist Cervando Maldonado and celebrity makeup artist Beau Nelson worked with the beautiful Odeya Rush for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event on Tuesday (October 21).

HAIRSTYLIST CERVANDO MALDONADO

Cervando shares his inspiration: “The inspiration was a young, fresh look for Odeya. Simple and beautiful.”

Here’s how to get the look.

He began by prepping her damp hair with Kerastase Volumactive Mousse, using a golf-ball-sized amount and distributing it evenly throughout the hair. Next he applied Oscar Blandi Volumizing Spray throughout the roots.

Then he blow dried the hair, starting in the front of the head and working his way to the back, using an Ibiza Boar Bristle Brush and Harry Josh Blow-Dryer. He dried the hair so it was straight and smooth with a little movement.

Next he sectioned off the hair and began curling it with a T3 1.5 Inch Curling Iron, starting from the bottom of the head and working his way to the top, creating loose natural waves. He sprayed Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray through the hair, adding volume and texture, and used his fingers to comb out the curls into a more natural fashion. He also sprayed a bit of Sachajuan Super Strong Hairspray around the hairline and throughout the hairstyle to hold in place and add shine for a beautiful young, fresh look.

Odeya’s skin was kept minimal with Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Sand and Clé de Peau Concealer in Ivory. Beau set the look with Charlotte Tilbury Pressed Compact Powder #1.

The eyes were kept fresh and bright with the two paler shades in the Tom Ford Nude Dip Eyeshadow Quad used wet all over the lid. Beau then curled the lashes and used YSL Baby Doll Mascara for definition and length.

On the cheeks he used Chanel Creme Blush in a pinky-coral shade to add a touch of subtle colour.

Lips were coated in a vibrant pink-red called Jealous by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.

Get The Look: Kate Bosworth’s ‘Gala in the Garden’ Hair & Makeup

Hammer Museum's "Gala In The Garden" Honoring Joni Mitchell And Mark BradfordCelebrity makeup artist Lisa Storey and celebrity hairstylist Bridget Brager worked with Kate Bosworth for the Hammer Museum’s ‘Gala in the Garden’ on Saturday (11 October).

MAKEUP ARTIST LISA STOREY
Lisa shares her beauty inspiration: “We decided on a look that transitioned from the end of summer to fall, and worked perfectly with Kate’s soft cream-white form-fitting Alexandre Vauthier Couture and diamonds.”

Here’s how to get the look.

On the outer edge of the eye, Lisa applied Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Plum, followed by the same stick in Orchid across the centre of the lid to the inner corners.

Next she used Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in Seductive Rose – the darker shade in the outer lid and blending the lighter shades towards the middle lid and corner of the eye. Then she blended into the contour of the eye to create a soft fading gradient of colour. The eyebrows were gently filled using Dior Eyebrow Pencil in Blonde to give a softer, warm look. She applied a light lick of Dior Blackout Mascara to give a little depth.

She blushed Kate’s cheeks with Chanel Cream Blush in Chamade and lightly contoured the cheekbones with Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Intensity 1.

Lisa finished the look with Tom Ford Indian Rose Lipstick and dusted the face with Tom Ford Illuminating Powder.

HAIRSTYLIST BRIDGET BRAGER
Bridget shares her hair inspiration: “We went for an understated hairstyle. The dress and jewels were such a statement and so beautiful that I wanted to keep on the cool side with a textured pony. She was going to a cocktail party, after all!”

Here’s how to get the look.

Bridget prepped Kate’s damp hair with O&M Atonic Thickening Spray. She dried her hair so as much natural texture as possible would come out – a lot of scrunching the hair up and then over, directing the hair from side to side.

After her hair was dry, Bridget used a 1.5 inch curling iron and picked out random sections of hair to curl horizontally. She curled up and then curled down the same section so no curl pattern was the same. She wanted lived-in hair.

Once all the hair was set, she sprayed Bumble and bumble City Swept onto the lengths of the hair and gave the hair a good shake. Then she secured the ponytail with a bungee just under the crown of the head. She wrapped a piece of hair around the bungee and secured it with a hairpin.

To finish, she used a light spray of L’Oreal Elnett Hairspray.

Get The Look: Emmy Rossum’s ‘Gala in the Garden’ Sleek Parisian Ponytail

Hammer Museum 12th Annual Gala In The Garden With Generous Support From Bottega Veneta

Celebrity hairstylist Cervando Maldonado worked with Emmy Rossum for the Hammer Museum’s ‘Gala in the Garden’ on Saturday.

Cervando shares his inspiration: “The inspiration for the look was a sleek Parisian ponytail.”

Here’s how to get the look.

He began by applying two pumps of Leonor Greyl Serum de Soie Sublimateur to slightly damp hair, distributing evenly throughout.

Next he blew the hair dry using a Harry Josh Blow Dryer and flat-ironed section by section, bottom to top with a Harry Josh Flat Iron. This left the hair shiny and very straight.

Then he sprayed Serge Normant Meta Sheer Dry Finishing Spray lightly throughout the hair to create extra shine and sleekness. After that he parted the hair in a deep side part and applied Osmo Clay Wax, running it through the hair. He then took a comb and combed through the hair, really making it hold together and stay close to the head. He pulled all the hair back to the nape, pinching it tight, and wrapped a bungee-cord hair tie around the hair very tightly, creating a low ponytail. Then he took a piece of the ponytail and wrapped it around the hair tie to cover and camouflage it.

Next he poured a nickel-sized amount of Shu Uemura Nourishing Protective Oil, rubbed it in his hands, then distributed it through the whole head from the top to the ponytail, which created major shine and a wet look. He finished off by spraying Frederic Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray for one last bit of hold and shine.
