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.

Get The Look: Hannah Davis’ Audrey Hepburn-Inspired Glow

Hannah Davis WHCD makeupCelebrity makeup artist Vincent Oquendo worked with Hannah Davis for the 2015 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner on Saturday ( April 25) in Washington, DC.

Vincent said, “I wanted to keep Hannah’s look very fresh and glowy. I imagined what a modern Audrey Hepburn would look like and I used that as my inspiration. Bronzed, chic, fresh and sophisticated.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Vincent started with the Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Self Foaming Mask. It’s a resurfacing mask that is like a facial in a box. It takes off all the dead skin in minutes and enhances the glow from under the makeup. Then he used the Klorane Eye Mask under her eyes.

He then applied NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Medium #4 all over her skin, followed by NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer in Medium 4 under her eyes.

He lightly dusted Chanel Mono Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Safari all over her eyelid and on her lower lash line before applying Laura Mercier Eye Glacé Cream Eyeshadow in the lightest platinum tone for the inner corner of the eye. Then he curled her lashes and used Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara in Black from root to tip. He used a lash comb to feather and separate lashes followed by a set of Ardell Demi Wispie False Lashes cut in half and applied to the outer corner of her eyes.

Next he used Charlotte Tilbury Film Star Bronze and Glow on the cheeks and brow bone. he used the darker bronze colour under her cheekbones and the lighter colour on her cheek plane and brow bone to highlight and sculpt. Then he finished off the cheeks with Chanel Powder Blush in Jersey on the apples of her cheeks to add a subtle flush under her bronzed glow.

For brows he used Anastasia Brow Wiz in Medium Brown to fill in holes and beef up the brow, followed by Dior Brow Gel in Dark Brown.

For her lips he started with the Bite Agave Lip Mask to prep and hydrate lips. Then he used Laura Mercier Lip Liner in Naked and filled in the entire lip. He finished them off by applying Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Tinted Lip Balm in Blush.

Vincent wanted to make sure Hannah’s body glowed as beautifully as her face so he used Mario Badescu Summer Shine Body Lotion on her entire body to give her a bronzed goddess summer glow.
