Get The Look: Megan Fox’s Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports Awards Flawless Makeup

Megan+Fox+Arrivals+Nickelodeon+Kids+Choice+KmYkrZA7fcVlCelebrity makeup artist Monika Blunder worked with Megan Fox for the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports Awards.

When it came to Monika’s inspiration, she said “I wanted Megan to look as young and fresh as possible. This is a great summer look and I was really adamant about using just the right shade of coral on the lips”.

Here’s how to get the look.

Monika started off by applying a really thin layer of La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation in Honey Beige all over with the Beauty Blender, defining the brows with an Anastasia Brow Wiz Brunette pencil and adding just a bit more colour to them on the outer corners.

Placing importance on not using any harsh lines on her eyes, wanting very soft, natural eye makeup with some shimmer, Monika started off by applying Chanel Illusion d’Ombre in Impulsion all over the eyelid before using Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Amethyst on the upper and lower lash line.

Nars Duo Eyeshadow in Kalahari was applied to the crease to add some definition, with a few coats of Lancome Definicils in black and a few Kiss Lashes in Short on the outer corners lash line.

On Megan’s cheeks Monika used Charlotte Tilbury Bronzer in Film Star Bronze and Glow to define her cheekbones, plus a dab of Charlotte Tilbury Blusher in Ecstasy on the apples of her cheeks and Charlotte Tilbury Bronzer in Film Star Bronze and Glow on the upper cheekbone, bridge of the nose and under the eyebrow.

To create that perfect pout, Monika applied coral Chanel Rouge Allure in Pimpante #90 directly to the lip out of the bullet with no lip liner.

Get The Look: Judy Greer’s ‘Married’ LA Premiere Summer Braid & Rich Red Lip

Get Judy Greer's 'Married' LA Premiere Summer Braid & Rich Red Lip

Celebrity hairstylist Gregory Russell and celebrity makeup artist Tamah Krinsky worked with Judy Greer for the premiere of FX’s new series ‘Married’ this week.

Here’s how they created her gorgeous red carpet look.

HAIR

Gregory started with Kevin Murphy Resort Spray applied to Judy’s damp hair and then he blew it out with an Ibiza round brush before applying some Leonor Greyl Éclat Naturel to the ends of Judy’s hair.

Next, he parted the hair down the centre and pinned up the crown section to braid last.
Then he French braided each side back and fastened the end of the braid with a clear elastic before braiding the crown section (just a regular braid, not a French braid). He then pulled out a few pieces around the face and loosened each of the braids and roughed them up a bit.

After spraying more Kevin Murphy Resort Spray, Gregory pinned the side braids into two low buns and connected them with the crown braid to complete the look, which was finished with Kérastase Laque Couture spray.

MAKEUP

Tamah likes to keep things light in summer, even for a red carpet, so the inspiration for Judy’s look came from her lovely tomato-red Jimmy Choo clutch.

Both Tamah and Judy thought the pop of red was a great accessory, and who doesn’t love a red lip?

To balance, Tamah gave Judy what she likes to call her ‘summer smoky eye’, giving the eyes definition but staying away from dark colours. To complete the look Tamah warmed Judy up with a little bronzer as opposed to blush. It is summer after all!

Here’s how to get the look.

Eyes: Tamah started by applying a thin layer of Benefit Creaseless Cream Eye Shadow in Flatter Me with a fluffy brush to keep it sheer. Next, she used a touch of the top and bottom left shadows from the Dior 030 Incognito Eyeshadow Quad. Then she used the bottom right as a liner under the lower lash line. She finished off the eyes by applying Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in black directly to the upper lash line, topping it off with Lancôme Hypnôse Star Mascara in Black.

Cheeks: Using a touch of Make Up For Ever 033 Dark Antique Pink as a base, she topped with Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Medium 2. Tamah then applied the bronzer with a medium-sized fluffy brush – preferring one that is angled for bronzer. She then applied this to the cheeks and swept it over the bridge of the nose, where the sun would naturally bronze.

Skin: Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Foundation in 113 was applied as foundation and concealer, followed by Laura Mercier Translucent Powder to set.

Lips: Tamah used NYX Butter Lipstick in JuJu Amulette and MAC lip liner in Redd to set the lip line.

Get the Look: Emmy Rossum’s Bright Critic’s Choice Television Awards Makeup

Emmy Rossum Critics Choice MakeupEmmy Rossum dazzled on the red carpet at the 4th Annual Critic’s Choice Television Awards in more ways than one.

The fuchsia Monique Lhuillier gown was paired with a rich coral lip.

Take notes, because fun hues are replacing the classics in beauty. High intensity shades can be worn on any complexion and are an easy way to update your normal routine.

Emmy’s makeup artist for the evening, Jo Baker, says that experimenting with bold tones is something that every woman should try.

Her tips make it easy for anyone to take a shot at the trend and also recreate Emmy’s look.

First, lips were prepped using Chanel Hydra Beauty Nourishing Lip Care. Generously moisturizing before applying lipstick helps the product glide on evenly while also minimizing cracked skin.

There’s nothing worse than wearing a bold color that highlights dehydrated crevices.

After massing the balm in, Givenchy Le Rouge in 201 Rose Taffetas was applied in several layers. The multiple coats maximize the pigment’s saturation.

Take a closer look and you’ll notice that the color doesn’t stop there. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Cosmetic Colour Pencil in Pool Boy was smudged into Rossum’s lash line, creating an aquatic haze.

If you’re not quite ready to mix two extreme shades, Baker recommends pairing slightly off hues to subtly intensify saturation. For instance, try mixing red with orange. The two tones will appear soft yet striking at the same time.

Get The Look: Rose Byrne’s Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards Intense Smoky Eye

Rose Byrne 2Celebrity makeup artist Georgie Eisdell worked on Rose Byrne’s makeup for the 2014 Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards.

Inspired by her silver lamé Max Mara strapless jumpsuit, Georgie said, “Rose had a modern ’70?s vibe going on, so I wanted to keep her makeup really clean, cool and chic.”

Here’s how to get her look.

The focus was all on her eyes. Georgie started by using Laura Mercier Matte Eye Shadow in Buttercream all over her eyelids for a flawless base.

Then she mixed Laura Mercier Matte Eye Shadow in Twilight Grey with NARS Eye Shadow in Namibia to get the perfect medium shade of grey.

This colour was applied over her lid, blending into the crease slightly to create a smoky effect. The colour was also applied under her eyes to create a deeper smoky effect, graduating from stronger to lighter toward the inner corner under the eye.

Three layers of CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara in Black concluded things in the eye area.

Rose’s skin was evened out using L’Oreal True Match Foundation and powdered all over with Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder.

A very small amount of Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Color in Honey Mocha was applied to the apple of the cheek and blended back slightly towards the ear.

To define her brows, Laura Mercier Brow duo in Ash was used.

And on her lips, Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Color in Nude #4 gave her a natural pout.

Finally, Tom Ford’s Bronzing Powder in Terra was very lightly applied to the forehead, cheekbones, and chin to add a little warmth.

Spike TV's "Guys Choice 2014" - ArrivalsAvon Global Celebrity Makeup Artist Lauren Andersen was inspired by the sleek, modern lines of Jessica Alba’s black leather David Koma dress worn to the Spike TV’s ‘Guys Choice 2014?, so she created a beautiful, dark eye look to match.

She gave Jessica’s brows a quick grooming with the Votre Vu Brow Wax.

Then, taking the Avon Glimmersticks Eye Liner in Blackest Black, Lauren lined her eyes and smudged the color out to the outer edge of the eye.

She completed the look with a swipe of the Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Pink Renewal, which kept her lips natural, yet with a pop of colour.
