Get The Look: Megan Montaner Goya Awards Bold Lip

Goya Cinema Awards 2015 - Red CarpetBobbi Brown makeup artist Raquel Serrano worked with Megan Montaner for the 2015 Goya Awards on Saturday (February 7).

Raquel was inspired by Megan herself, saying, “She is a strong, confident and sensuous woman.”

Raquel’s goals were to enhance Megan’s skin, highlighting her cheekbones to create an irresistible magnetism.

To achieve that brightness Raquel prepped Megan’s skin with Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream before brightening her under-eye with Hydrating Eye Cream. She then applied Bobbi Brown Medium to Dark Bisque Corrector and Warm Natural Creamy Concealer Kit.

To create flawless skin Raquel blended Bobbi Brown Warm Natural Skin Foundation Stick all over the face. For a long-wear effect she blended Bobbi Brown Warm Natural Sheer Finish Pressed Powder after the foundation.

Adding some warmth, she added a touch of Bobbi Brown Golden Light Bronzing Powder paired with Bobbi Brown Tawny Blush on her cheeks, and followed by softly dusting Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Brick to boost luminosity.

To define and enhance the eyes, Raquel applied the following light eye shadows: Bobbi Brown Ivory Eye Shadow, Blonde Eye Shadow, Antique Rose Eye Shadow and Beige Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow, before applying Bobbi Brown Black Ink Long Wear Gel Eyeliner, drawing an impactful up line. Framing the eyes, she finished by defining Megan’s brows with Bobbi Brown Dark Brow Kit and Mahogany Natural Brow Shaper.

Raquel wanted to emphasise Megan’s lips, creating depth with two different and bold shades – Bobbi Brown Crimson Rich Lip Color and Red Carpet Creamy Matte Lip Color.

She lined her lips before and after with Chocolate Lip Liner to get a long-wear effect and add definition.

Get The Look: Katy Perry’s Sultry Cat-Eye Grammy Awards Look

57th GRAMMY Awards - ArrivalsThe ever-evolving Katy Perry proves that there is no style too outrageous for her to try at least once. The radiant artist sparkled on the Grammy Awards red carpet in a sheer Zuhair Murad embellished dress and an orchid-hued tousled bob hairstyle that perfectly complemented her sultry beauty look.

With such a bold look, celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey created an elegant makeup that played up Katy’s greatest features without looking too over done. Jake didn’t wait to complete with the bright tones of her hair and opted to use warm bronzes throughout the look.

Here’s how Jake achieved this sultry cat-eye look:

To create that flawless finish on the skin, Jake began by layering CoverGirl Stay Fabulous Outlast 3-in-1 Foundation onto skin with a flat kabuki foundation brush. The flat compact style of the brush allowed Jake to evenly work the product into the skin and create a streak free application that looked softly airbrushed. Jake revisits the skin after the eyes are complete and sets the foundation with a light dusting of CoverGirl Clean Powder.

For that dramatic face-framing brow, Jake emphasized Katy’s brows with CoverGirl Powder Brow + Liner in Medium Brown.

It was all about the eyes with this look. He started by blending the darkest shade of the CoverGirl Eye Shadow Quads in Blooming Blushes onto the outer creases and pulling it into the crease. Jake then saturated a shadow brush with the second darkest and layered it the lids. He continued the gradient effect by applying the third shade on the inner lids. He finished by applying the lightest shade in the tear ducts as a highlight which opened up the eyes and gave the illusion of a brighter effect overall.

To achieve that bold black graphic cat eye, Jake expertly lined Katy’s eyes with CoverGirl Bombshell Intensity Liner and finished the eyes with a two generous coats of CoverGirl Full Lash Bloom by LashBlast Mascara on both the upper and lower lashes.

To accentuate the cheeks, Jake used CoverGirl Clean Glow Blush for both definition and color. He sculpted the cheekbones with the darkest shade in the compact and followed with the lightest tone on the apples of the cheeks.

Jake finished the look with the perfect molten bronze lip. He layered CoverGirl Colorlicious Lipstick in Sultry Sienna under a slight swipe of CoverGirl Colorlicious Lip Gloss in Melted Coffee.

Get The Look: Lady Gaga’s Grammy Awards Metallic Beauty Look

57th GRAMMY Awards - ArrivalsLady Gaga is one artist that is sure to never go unnoticed on the red carpet and Sunday evening’s Grammy Awards was no exception. The seasoned superstar stepped out in a shimmering silver custom Brandon Maxwell gown and sported an equally statement making beauty look.

Celebrity Makeup Artist Sarah Tanno was undoubtedly inspired by the sleek metallic tones of her gown and mimicked those notes in her beauty look. Sarah created a look that emphasized on elongating the eyes and framing them with bold shimmery shadows.

While keeping the rest of the look neutral, Sarah achieve this playful look with these simple steps:

Sarah’s goal was to keep the skin fresh and lit from within. She achieved that brightness by prepping the skin with Shiseido White Lucent Power Brightening Mask and followed by blending Shiseido Bio-Performance Glow Revival Serum to the skin. For further hydration and suppleness, she continued by working Shiseido Bio-Performance Advance Super Restoring Cream into Gaga’s skin.

Once skin was prepped, Sarah blended Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foudation SPF 17 onto the skin from the center of the face out to the framing perimeters.

For a brightening effect along the skin and under eyes, Sarah applied Shiseido Sheer Eye Zone Corrector in Natural. She followed by softly dusting Gaga’s skin with Shiseido Translucent Loose Powder.

For that lustrous defined cheek, Sarah subtly contoured Gaga’s cheeks with Shiseido Bronzer in Medium. She continued to add a natural flush of peach color with Shiseido MAQuillAGE Dramatic Mood Veil Blush in RD100 to the apples of the cheek.

To get that ‘soft metallic shimmer,’ Sarah began by applying Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Tin to the lids and followed with Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Mist in the inner corners of the eyes.

Sarah proceeded by smudging Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Caviar along the lash line and outer corners of the lids for a more accented touch. She set the cream shadow with Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio in Lido. Following with an added layer of drama, Gaga’s eyes were heavily lined with Shiseido Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil in Black and blended upon application.

For the finishing bold touch, Sarah topped Gaga’s lashes with a couple of coats of Shiseido Perfect Mascara Defining Volume in Black.

With such a dramatic look, Sarah opted for a soft muted pout. She defined Gaga’s lips with Shiseido Smoothing Lip Pencil in Hazel and swiped the lips in a coat of Shiseido Lacquer Rouge in Carnelian. A favorite of both Sarah’s and Gaga’s, the result was a soft lip with a satin finish.

Get The Look: Tessa Thompson’s NAACP Image Awards Makeup

46th NAACP Image Awards Presented By TV One - Arrivals

Celebrity makeup artist Nick Barose, who also works with Lupita Nyong’o, created Tessa Thompson’s red carpet look for the NAACP Image Awards on Saturday (February 7).

Nick likes to start with a good canvas on the skin. He applied Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer along with the Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup Compact and their Light Master Primer with a Beauty Blender to start.

When working on her smoky eye, instead of using a lot of shadows he smudged the liner along the top and bottom lash lines and went back over the lid with the Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in Shadow. It’s dramatic but ends up being softer and easier to wear with a dark lip.

For Nick, false lashes are non-negotiable on the red carpet, but he likes them to look as natural as possible. Tessa wore the Eylure Pro-Lash Individuals with Giorgio Armani Maestro Liquid Eye Liner on top to help conceal the glue. Giorgio Armani Black Ecstasy Mascara was then applied to bring it all together.

Nick applied one coat of the Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in 504 Ecstasy before applying blush on the apples of the cheeks and a little bit of highlighter to finish off the look.

Get The Look: Sienna Miller’s Fresh Golden Globes Awards Makeup

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - ArrivalsMuch like her radiant embellished gown, Sienna Miller seemed to be glowing from within at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards. While her perfectly tousled tresses paired well with you gown, it was her fresh beauty look that truly accented the glamorous elements of her full look.

Drawing from the boho-chic tones of her Miu Miu dress, Celebrity Makeup Artist, Charlotte Tilbury created a polished look that still remained fresh and effortless. Allowing the skin to be the focal point of the look helped Charlotte create an ethereal makeup look with hints of glamour.

Here’s how this makeup guru achieved this flawless look.

Prior to applying any cosmetics, Charlotte emphasized the need for perfectly prepped skin. Opting for a mask, Charlotte prepped Sienna’s skin with Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask (to launch March 2015). Once that was complete, Charlotte blended a moisturizing layer of her Magic Cream and followed with a light layer of Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow to ensure bright and hydrated skin.

Once a healthy canvas was achieved, Charlotte applied a mixture of Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation (6 Medium and 7 Medium) to skin. To brighten the under eye areas, Charlotte applied Charlotte Tilbury Retoucher Concealer (2 Fair) and chose a shade darker (3 medium) for areas along the rest of the skin.

To set the foundation, Charlotte opted for a light dusting of Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Powder (1 Fair and 2 Medium) along the t-zone. Not only did this allow Sienna’s dewy complexion to shine through but also added to the longevity of the makeup.

To achieve that lustrous glowing look, Charlotte used Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow. She enhanced Sienna’s skin by subtly applying bronzer along her cheekbones, jaw line and temple. For added dimension, Charlotte then layered Charlotte Tilbury Beach Sticks in Ibiza atop the bronzer. Next, Charlotte achieved that dreamy radiance by sweeping Charlotte Tilbury Moonbeach highlighter along the top of the cheekbones. For a light flush of color, she chose Charlotte Tilbury Formentera on the apples of the cheeks.

Charlotte groomed Sienna’ brows and enhanced them with Charlotte Tilbury Brow Lift in Grace K and Cara D.

Charlotte defined her eyes by lining the lash line with Charlotte Tilbury The Classic Powder Eye Pencil in Audrey and layering Charlotte Tilbury Rock ‘n’ Kohl Liner in Barbarella Brown over that deeper intensity. For shadow, Charlotte used shades from Charlotte Tilbury The Luxury Palette in The Sophisticate. Using a blending brush, Charlotte blended the enhancer shade into the creases of Sienna’ eyes for added depth and followed with the pop shade at the inner corner and blended it along the upper lash line to the outer corners.

Charlotte heavily coated Sienna’s upper lashes in her favorite Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Mascara (Glossy Black) and lightly applied mascara to the lower lashes.

To ensure a smooth canvas, Charlotte applied Charlotte Tilbury Lip Love Lip Scrub to remove any makeup or dry skin and followed with a light coat of Charlotte Tilbury Lip Magic Lip Balm.

Charlotte enhanced Sienna’s natural lip shape with Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Iconic Nude. For a base shade, she applied Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Sexy Sienna and layered over a light swipe of K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Nude Kate.
