Get the Look: Sarah Hyland’s Metallic Billboard Music Awards Makeup

2014 Billboard Music Awards - ArrivalsThe Modern Family actress, Sarah Hyland lit up the red carpet at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards in more ways than one.

Her Pucci ensemble and Oscar Tiye sandals featured metallic accents, so naturally she made sure her makeup included a bit of sparkle as well. Read on to recreate the shimmering look at home.

L.A. based makeup artist, Allan Avendano, prepped Hyland’s skin with Orlane Paris Super Moisturizing Light Cream. Don’t forget to show your lips a bit of TLC as well. Apply Dior’s Crème de Rose Balm for that smoothing effect.

Avendano always starts with eyes and Diorshow Backstage Eye Prime is the trick to preventing eyeshadow from creasing throughout the evening.

You’ll need three shades of a light reflecting eyeshadow to pull off the smokey eye. Diorshow Fusion Mono in Meteore was first applied to Hyland’s entire upper lid and also under the eyes.

Next Diorshow Fusion Mono in Chimere was blended from the center to the inner corners on the top and bottom of eyes. The lightest shade, Diorshow Fusion Mono in Lune was lightly blended to the inner corners of the eyes.

For eyeliner, focus on the outer corners, creating the illusion of a more opened eye. Dior Eyeliner Waterproof in Intense Brown enhanced Hyland’s soft smokey look.

Both Diorshow Black Out and Diorshow New Look were used on lashes. For the boldest of lashes, apply two to three coats of mascara and focus on the outer strands, creating a fanned out effect. Sarah’s effortless brows were filled and shaped with Dior Sourcils Poudre in Sand, which helps to diffuse the color and create a natural shape.

Diorskin Nude Foundation was used on Hyland’s face along with Diorskin Glow Maximizer to highlight. To intensify skin’s radiance, Diorskin Nude Tan Powder Bronzer in Sienna was applied to cheeks.

The lips are where the fun begins. You too can create a metallic color by mixing eyeshadows and lipstick as Avendano did for Hyland. Rouge Dior Lipstick in Trench was combined with Diorshow Fusion Mono Shadows in Meteore and Chimere. Eyeshadows can be rather drying on lips; so don’t forget to add a lip balm once complete to maintain skin’s moisture.

Bollywood actress, Sonam Kapoor, was a vintage delight in a billowing Elie Saab Couture gown for the screening of ‘The Homesman’ during Cannes Film Festival.

The L’Oréal Paris ambassador walked the red carpet working a faux bob ‘do with flapper girl waves. Mixing the eras, Sonam opted for a 60s makeup inspiration with bold red lips and heavy lush lashes.

Her ‘Great Gatsby’ hairdo help pulled the vintage look together. So take your hairstyle cues from the star and master her vintage updo in just a few steps.

Step 1: First section the crown into a triangular shape with a defined side part. Next, wrap this section around a small-barrelled curling iron, holding it a forward angle and securing each curl with a pin.

Step 2: Curl the remainder of your hair into loose curls. There’s no need to pin down these curls.

Step 3: Remove the hair clips from the top and brush out the curls into an S-wave pattern.

Step 4: For long hair, gather strands into a low ponytail and twist into a faux bob.

Step 5: For a finishing touch, spritz on some hairspray for extra hold and accessorize with a jewelled hairband just above the eyebrows for the flapper girl look.

There you have it. Sonam’s vintage ‘do right at your fingertips. To complete this look add a pop of red to your lips and a generous coat of mascara for a touch of extra drama.

Zoe Saldana looked every inch the L’Oréal Paris spokesperson for the Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony with her hair set in pretty side-swept waves and her makeup consisting of a delicate cat eye and bright red lips.

Here’s how to get her look.

The Base: Prep your skin by applying a dewy primer to create a smooth canvas for the rest of your makeup to adhere to. Next use a flat brush to dab foundation across your cheeks, chin, nose and forehead and blend until full coverage is achieved.

Take hold of Zoe’s healthy looking glow by applying highlighter across both sides of your face in the shape of a ‘3.’ A hit of colour underneath the cheekbones will also enhance the contouring effect. L’Oréal’s True Match blush in Rosewood is the perfect match to Zoe’s rosy cheeks to bring warmth to your beauty finish.

The Eyes: For Zoe’s sultry cat eye makeup, start with a wash of bronze eyeshadow across the base of your eyelids. Then using a black liquid eyeliner, trace a thin line across your upper and lower lash line. Continue the line from your upper lash line finishing in a slightly upward-angled straight line. Finish the look with a couple of coats of mascara.

The Lips: Complete your beauty look with a swipe of red lipstick for an effortlessly glamorous finish.
