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.

Get The Look: Emmy Rossum’s Gotham Awards Makeup

Emmy RossumCelebrity makeup artist Quinn Murphy worked with Emmy Rossum for the Gotham Independent Film Awards on Monday (November 30) in New York City.

“Emmy was wearing a black and brown Simone Rocha mini dress to the Gotham Awards. I wanted to do something sexy and to bring out her beautiful eyes. I used black, chocolate brown and camel hues to give the smoky eye effect,” said Quinn.

Here’s how to get the look.

He started by using a very tiny amount of Armani Luminous Silk Foundation #4. Emmy has amazing porcelain skin, so very little is needed. He then lightly filled in her brows with M.A.C. Pencil in Lingering, focusing on the outer third of the brow.

For the eyes, he lined the top lash line with his favourite Votre Vu Pencil in black. It stays put basically forever, so it’s great for long wear at events. He increased the thickness on the outer ends of the eyes and gave them a mini cat like shape. Next he used a duo of NARS Shadows on top of the black liner to create the ‘smoky’ effect.

First, a deep chocolate brown – Bengali – and then a warm taupe called Blondie that he blended past her crease. Next, he linked the bottom lash line with a Kevyn Aucoin brown Pencil Liner. Brown on the bottom isn’t as heavy and one-dimensional as black. He finished with black mascara on top and bottom lashes.

He bypassed blush and instead used a bronzer to keep the look cool and tough. He used NARS in Casino on the edges of her face and slightly towards the apples of the cheek.

For the lip, he didn’t want to do anything too ‘makeupy’ – something resembling her natural lip tone to keep it cool and unfussy. He lined the lip with Kevyn Aucoin Medium Lip Pencil and filled in the entire lip. He topped with basicChapstick for moisture and touchups.

Get The Look: Nina Dobrev’s Elle Women in Hollywood Awards Makeup

Nina Dobrev Elle MakeupCelebrity makeup artist Monika Blunder worked with Nina Dobrev for the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards on Monday (October 19).

“Nina was wearing a nude Calvin Klein dress, so I wanted to add a pop of color with her makeup. I decided to go with a burgundy lip paired with a really well blended taupe eye,” said Monika.
Here’s how to get the look.

Monika started by applying Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation in shade 255 all over Nina’s face, using a foundation brush to applying in the center of the face, then blending outward using a Beauty Blender.

To brighten her under eye area, she applied M.A.C. Select Moisture cover in NW20 in the socket of her under eye area.

She then filled in the brows using Anastasia Brow Wiz in Chocolate to give her more defined, fuller arches.

Using the Golden Goddess Palette by Charlotte Tilbury, she applied the Smoke Shade with a M.A.C. 217 brush, washing the colour backwards and forward along the socket. She also applied a little on the outer corners to create a reverse V.

She then applied the Enhance shade along the brow bone to give Nina a highlight, then, using the Dolce Vita palette, she applied the Pop shade on the lid under her socket with using a M.A.C. 239 Brush.

Taking a thin brush, she applied the Smoke shade of the Golden Goddess Palette lightly along her upper lash line, like eyeliner.

Monika curled Nina’s lashes using Kevyn Aucoin Lash Curler, then applied three coats of the Dior Addict It-Lash. She also used a few Ardell Individual Lashes on the outer corners of her eyes.

To warm up her complexion, she applied M.A.C. Golden Refined Bronzer using a fluffy bronzing brush along her cheekbones in a circular motion, then lightly brushed along her jaw line, temples and forehead.

On the apples of Nina’s cheeks, Monika applied Kevyn Aucoin Blush in Ariana, and for a little bit of highlight, she used the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette, mixing Incandescent and Radiant light and applying on the upper cheekbone and dusting underneath the eyes.

On her lips, she started by applying Tom Ford Bruised Plum Lipstick straight from the bullet, and to clean up the edges and define the lip shape, she used the Chanel Precision Lip Definer in Vamp.

Get The Look: Lady Gaga’s ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ Countess Look

gagaCelebrity makeup artist Sarah Tanno worked with Lady Gaga for the premiere of ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ on Saturday (October 3) in Los Angeles.

Here’s how to get the look.

Sarah started by bleaching her natural brows and used Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel to brush them up and keep in place.

For her skin, Sarah wanted a soft, velvety glow so she used Armani Maestro Foundation and Luminous Silk Powder only on the T-zone.

One of Sarah’s go to products is Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate to contour and highlight the skin. It’s a cream which she loves because it keeps the skin so smooth. Armani Fluid Sheer in #8 blush was then applied.

To get the Countess shaded winged eye, Sarah used Armani Smooth Silk Eye Pencil in #2 only on the outer half of the lash line (top and bottom) and blended up into a wing shape.

She sculpted the inside of the eye with Bobbi Brown’s Eye Shadow in Warm Taupe; adding Lilly Lashes in Miami and Sisley Mascara to create an old Hollywood feel.

Sarah finished off Gaga’s eyes with a touch of gloss at the center of the lid.

Gaga’s timeless red pout was created using M.A.C. Cherry liner with Bésame Red Hot Red Lipstick.

Get The Look: Sienna Miller’s Cannes Film Festival Jury Photocall Makeup

Sienna and CTMakeup artist and friend Charlotte Tilbury created Sienna Miller’s modern and sophisticated look for the 2015 Cannes Film Festival Jury photocall.

Here’s how to re-create Sienna’s makeup look:

Charlotte prepped Sienna’s skin using Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask, which was used to create a veil of perfection on the skin.

Charlotte then applied Charlotte’s Magic Cream to the entire face, followed by WonderGlow to create a flawless soft focus and an instant ‘spotlight’ effect – a skin ritual whose result Charlotte calls ‘the gift of Goddess skin’.

Sienna’s complexion was perfected with a mixture of Light Wonder Youth-Boosting Perfect Skin Foundation SPF 15 in 6 Medium, The Retoucher Concealer in 2 Fair and 3 Medium, and Air Brush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder in 2 Medium to correct any discoloration and imperfections.

Next, her brows were lightly filled in with the Brow Lift Three-Way Shape, Lift and Shade Tool in Cara D.

Sienna’s soft and feminine eyes were created by blending The Sophisticate Luxury Palette prime and enhance shades on the top lid.

Her eyes were further defined with The Classic Eyeliner Powder Pencil in Audrey along the lash line and water line.

Full Fat Lashes Mascara was applied to the top and bottom lashes for a gorgeous flutter. Filmstar Bronze & Glow was then used with the large Bronzer Brush across the cheekbones and temples to create a natural, glowing look, and her cheeks were accentuated with Beachsticks in Moonbeach and Formentera on the apples to enhance her glowing complexion.

Sienna’s lips were lined with Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk and filled in with Matte Revolution Lipstick in Bond Girl and Walk of Shame.
