Get The Look: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Shimmering Eyes

unnamedCelebrity makeup artist Lisa Storey worked with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for the FORWARD by Elyse Walker & Anthony Vaccarello Dinner on Wednesday (October 22).

Lisa explains, “Rosie wanted a simple look for a casual event so I focused on a shimmering eye.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Lisa began by dusting the lighter shade of the Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in Seductive Rose over the entire eyelid, followed by the darker shade on the edge of the eye, top and bottom.

She used a small, soft brush to give a tinge of colour from the darker shade and applied the light-pink shade more intensely to the inner corner of the eye. Then she framed the eye behind the lash line with Tom Ford Eye Defining Pen, extending the line out beyond the lash line to give the eye a little lift. She then applied Dior Blackout Mascara to the top and bottom lashes.

On the cheeks she used Tom Ford Cheek Color in Wicked to give a vibrant pinky glow.

On the lips she used L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Glossy Balm in My Baby Doll.

Lisa finished with a light dusting of Tom Ford Illuminating Powder.

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.

Here’s how to get the 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: Megan Fox’s Ferrari’s 60th Anniversary In The USA Gala Bold Red Lip

Ferrari's 60th Anniversary In The USACelebrity makeup artist Monika Blunder worked with Megan Fox for Ferrari’s 60th Anniversary in the USA gala on Saturday.

Monika explained her inspiration: “Megan wore a red Versace dress and I matched the lip colour exactly to the dress. The look was effortless and chic. On her eyes I did hardly anything, just a very thin black eyeliner and a pop of shimmer in the inner corners of her eyes.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Monika started off by applying Clé de Peau Silk Cream Foundation in 030 with a foundation brush all over her skin. For a bit of coverage under her eyes, she then used NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard.

On her brows she used Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Dark Brown and only filled in the gaps. She also created a bit more of an arch.

For this look it was really important to Monika not to use too much product on Megan’s eyes, so all she used was a bit of highlighter and shimmer, and a very thin line of eyeliner. She began by applying Shiseido Shimmer Cream Eye Color in Sunshower and Sparkling Copper Rose on her upper eyelid and on the lower lash line. Then she applied a very thin layer of Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Precision Long Wear Liquid Eyeliner on the upper lash line, adding a little flick to the outer corners of the eyes. After that she curled the lashes and applied three coats of Sisley So Intense Mascara in Black on the upper and lower lashes. She also applied Ardell Individual Lashes in short and medium.

To add a bit of colour to the cheeks she used Lorac Matte Satin Baked Blush in Velvet Rope and added a bit of highlighter by applying Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light.

Finally, she finished this look with a red lip by applying Stila Lip Liner in #25 and Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Creme Lipstick in Icon.

Get The Look: Vera Farmiga’s ‘The Judge’ LA Premiere Makeup

"The Judge" - Los Angeles Premiere - ArrivalsCelebrity makeup artist Dawn Broussard worked with Vera Farmiga for the premiere of ‘The Judge’ this week.

Dawn shared her beauty inspiration: “For Vera’s premiere look I wanted to create a modern yet unique and unexpected tone. I created a smouldering effect with the eye shadow shades, deflecting on the hints of rose in the colour and texture of her Elie Saab dress.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Dawn started by prepping the skin with Hourglass Primer, gently working it into the skin with a Shiseido Foundation Brush. Using the same brush, she applied Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide in Shell. In keeping with the same tool, she finds it helps with the mixture of the two products. The more you work it into the skin, the more seamless the texture becomes. Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-2 I was then applied lightly to the under-eye area, forehead, chin and bridge of the nose to highlight and to conceal any imperfections. She dusted translucent powder very sparingly over the edges of the face, keeping the skin looking fresh and luminous.

NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Dolomites was used to blend around the eyes. This colour combo is amazing for creating a smouldering look, yet is still playful – the hints of rose quartz and dark chocolates glisten on the eyes. This is one of her new favourites for the fall palette. Dawn used only these two colours to create the look, blending them softly together and washing them over the eyes.

She lined the lower lash line with the darker colour, yet kept it quite close to the lash line. Dawn then added the rose quartz in the corners of the eye for a boost and a highlight. Using a Lash Card by Elizabeth Mott, she applied Lancôme Hypnose Drama Mascara in Excessive Black. You place the Lash Card right on the lash line and then move the mascara wand up the lashes onto the card. This really helps paint the lashes much more precisely and any excess product will remain on the card as opposed to the skin.

Tarte Brow Mousse in Taupe filled in her brows ever so slightly on the edges to create a bolder shape. Keeping the brow hairs in place perfectly was Tarte Tinted Brow Gel in Taupe. This product has such a precise brush and the colours are perfection.

Dawn then blended NARS Contour Blush in Olympia right underneath the cheekbone and around the edges of the face to give structure and depth where it was needed. Keeping a bright healthy pink glow, she used NARS Blush in Mata Hari.

The lip colour she wanted to keep neutral yet with a hint of freshness. Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon in Sedona Sands is a wonderful nude colour with a hint of flush. She also used MAC Lip Pencil in Oak for slight definition.

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: 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.
