Mandy Moore’s Poppy Coral Golden Globes Beauty Look

This year’s Golden Globe Awards red carpet was flooded with beautifully styled and elegantly designed black gowns, but it was the bright coral belt on Mandy Moore’s Rosie Assoulin gown that helped her shine among this stylish crowd. Similarly, her beauty look conveyed the same pop of color that presented a fresh spring-like look for this winter event.

Inspired by this bright shade and 80’s Roxy Music album covers that depicted sculpted skin with dewy accents and bold lips and eyes, Celebrity Makeup Artist Matin, created a chic look that highlighted Mandy’s best assets. Here’s how to achieve this playful and youthful look:

SKIN: A well-hydrated face provides a healthy canvas for flawless makeup application. To achieve a bright and evenbase, Matin applied Charlotte Tilbury’s Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask. This smoothing mask instantly revived the skin and replenished radiance. For added moisturize to the skin, he followed by blending Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream onto her face, neck, shoulders and arms and primed the skin with the color-correcting Charlotte Tilbury Brightening Youth Glow.

FACE: To further emphasize the radiance of Mandy’s skin, Matin applied Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Flawless Filter in 5 (to launch March 2018) to the high points of her face, tops of her cheekbones and brought down to her shoulders and back. This new product mimics the flawless effects of social media filters and provides a youthful and glamorous glow upon application. To even out her skin, Matin buffed in Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Foundation in 5 and sculpted the face with Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Contour Want in Light/Medium. For future definition of the color and highlight, he followed with Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze and Glow in Light/Medium. For brightness and a demure flush of color, Matin blended Charlotte Tilbury’s Cheek to Chic Blusher in Ecstasy onto her cheeks. Finally, to set the skin, he lightly dusted Charlotte Tilbury’s Airbrush Flawless Finish in 2 to the face.

EYES: For the classic Charlotte Tilbury mesmeric eye look, Matin used Charlotte Tilbury’s Luxury Palette in The Dolce Vita. To define Mandy’s eyes, he saturated the entire lid with Charlotte Tilbury’s Colour Chameleon in Golden Quartz and followed with The Dolce Vita palette. He then applied a healthy coating of Charlotte Tilbury’s Full Fat Lashes in Glossy Black to her lashes which resulted in incredibly voluptuous lashes which framed the completed eye look.

LIPS: To tie in the poppy coral accent of her dress, Matin chose Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Lips Matte Liquid Lipstick in Walk of Fame, a statement-making lip in a lush orange-based red tone.

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.

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.

Get the Look: Kelsea Ballerini’s ACM Awards Sultry Smoky Eye

Kelsea Ballerini graced the 2017 American Country Music Awards red carpet on Sunday (April 2) with a sexy smoky eye to balance out her sweet Monique Lhuillier frock. While she didn’t take home any awards that night, she definitely was a winner in our books for her pretty and playful look.

Celebrity makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan created Ballerini’s fresh face by first prepping the skin with Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream and following up with the Kate Somerville Goat Milk De-Puffing Eye Balm. To make sure the eyes were extra hydrated, Deenihan applied Skyn Iceland’s Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels under the singer’s eyes for about ten minutes to hydrate and firm the eyes. To finish off the skin prep, the makeup artist applied Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield to prime the skin and control shine.

After Deenihan prepped the skin she applied Armani Power Fabric Foundation in shade 5.5 to Kelsea’s face and neck. “This foundation leaves the skin with the perfect amount of coverage and keeps the skin looking fresh all night – even with four look changes” explains the makeup artist, “I like to apply foundation with a damp beauty blender sponge for added moisture and a slightly dewy look.”

To start on the boldest part of the look, Deenihan framed the eye by defining the brows by slightly filling them in using Dior’s Diorshow Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil in Universal Brown. Then to start the shadow, Deenihan used the matte chocolate brown shade from the Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in 268 Candeur Et Experience and covered the whole lid up to the crease and then smudged underneath the bottom lash line. Then to highlight the shadow to accentuate the eyes, the makeup artist used Avon’s mark. All Time Eye Hook Up Shadow in Sun Ray. According to Deenihan, “[adding] it to the inner corners of the eye really opens the eyes when the shimmer of the shadow hits the light.” To finish the eyes, she used a couple coats of mark. Lash Act Build and Define Mascara in black for an extra boost of drama and dimension.

To highlight Kelsea’s cheekbones, Deenihan used mark. Glowdacious Illuminating Powder in Amped up on the hollows of her cheeks and mark. Touch & Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes All Over Face Palettes on the high cheekbones for a radiant glow. To finish off the cheeks, she added a hint of La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Blush in Berry Glow, “I love this cream blush because it blends over powders seamlessly and really illuminates the skin” says Deenihan.

Finally, to finish off the look, Kelsey explains that the singer loves a natural lip so she used mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Bare All for a hint of color and long lasting moisture.

Get the Look: Kate Bosworth’s Vanity Fair Oscar Party Old Hollywood Charm

One of Kate Bosworth’s finest red carpet moments came at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party where she wore a stunning green fairy princess J. Mendel gown.

We love how her her gorgeous gown was complimented by absolutely flawless makeup.

Celebrity makeup artist Hung Vanngo for Marc Jacobs created a romantic and timeless look for the actress that can only be categorized as old Hollywood meets modern day vamp.

Here is how he created her look.

To prep Kate’s skin before makeup application, Vanngo used Olehenriksen Truth Serum and Marc Jacobs Under(Cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer.

He then mixed Marc Jacobs Beauty Genius Gel Super-Charged Foundation in Bisque Medium 26 with Marc Jacobs Beauty Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter and buffed a thin layer over Kate’s entire face, blending a bit down her neck for the ultimate glow on the red carpet.

He then brightened the center of her face with Marc Jacobs Beauty Remedy Concealer Pen Rendezvous 1. In areas that required extra coverage he applied Marc Jacobs Beauty Re(marc)able full cover concealer Alive 2.

For added warmth and dimension he patted Marc Jacobs Beauty Glow Stick Glistening Illuminator to the high points of her face and then dusted Marc Jacobs Beauty O!mega Bronzer Perfect Tan along her temples and cheekbones.

To get her eyes to compliment her gown Vanngo applied Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Intro(vert) 52, onto Kate’s eyelids and under her lower lashes. He then used a brush to blend the liner to further define her eyes.

Vanngo then smudged Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyelinerin (brown)ie 53, into her lashes on the outer part of her eyes. He then sealed the deal a few coats of Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara on her top and bottom lashes.

To fill in Kate’s brows he used Marc Jacobs Beauty Brow Wow Defining Longwear Eyebrow Pencil Taupe 2 and brushed them up using Marc Jacobs Beauty Brow Tamer Grooming Gel.

To pull attention to her lips he defined them in a colour similar to her complexion and chose Marc Jacobs Beauty (P)outliner Longwear Lip Liner Pencil Currant Mood 308 and used a brush to on Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick Blow 210.

He complemented her lips by using Marc Jacobs Beauty Air Blush Soft Glow Duo in 500 Lush & Libido – petal pink/orchid pink duo, on her cheeks.

He finished her look off with Marc Jacobs Beauty Perfection Powder– Featherweight Foundation Ivory Bisque 200 and set it all with Marc Jacobs Beauty Re(cover) Perfecting Coconut Setting Mist.
