Get The Look: Elizabeth Banks’ AMAs Makeup

2014 American Music Awards - ArrivalsCelebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles worked with Elizabeth Banks for the 2014 American Music Awards on Sunday.

Fiona explains her beauty inspiration. “Clean with colour was the inspiration to complement Elizabeth’s dress for the American Music Awards. She looks so great with a strong brow and a bright lip – it’s my favourite way to make her up.”

Here’s how to get the look

She began with Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation #023 and Tom Ford Concealing Pen in Medium/Light. She also used a bit of Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder.

For contour and highlighter, she used Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow. To bring out those cheeks she used NARS Sex Machine and Chanel Les Beiges #30 blush.

Fiona said that a little contour gives a modern, sculpted look with just a touch of blush for a subtle flush. Plus it keeps the contour from looking too severe.

On the brows she used Anastasia Brow Wiz in Medium Ash.

For the eyes, she just used a combination of a powder highlighter and contour instead of eyeshadow (Kevyn Aucoin The Sculpting Powder and MAC Lightsweep Highlighter). She likes using taupe because it adds depth without looking like a lot of makeup. It makes the eye colour pop and it doesn’t compete with the rest of the makeup. She used Antonym Eyeliner in Noir, a deep inky black pencil, to line the upper lid right along the lashes and then swiped Surratt Autographique Liquid Liner in Chat Noir on top of it to make it even blacker.

Loads of Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes in Glossy Black were applied on the top and a coat on the bottom to give the eyes a bit of 60s flavour.

For the lips she didn’t want to exactly match the colours in her dress so she mixed an orange and fuchsia to get a custom electric pink that lands in between the red and orange of the dress (Butter London LIPPY Moisture Matte Lipstick in Ladybird & Dahling).

Get The Look: Camila Alves’ ‘Interstellar’ New York Premiere Makeup

'Interstellar' New York PremiereCelebrity makeup artist Julie Harris worked with Camila Alves for the premiere of ‘Interstellar’ on Monday (November 3) in New York City.

Julie explains the beauty inspiration behind her gorgeous date night makeup: “I was inspired by Camila’s beautiful Marchesa dress. I wanted to give the makeup a feeling of the 20s but still modern by emphasizing the eyes, giving them a sexy sultry look. I also knew I wanted to go with a bordeaux stained lip.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Julie prepped Camila’s gorgeous skin with Yon-Ka Lotion for sensitive skin followed by La Mer Hydrating Lotion and Tata Harper Eye Creme. She blended a light coat of Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 8.5 with a Beautyblender. She highlighted under the eyes with Korres Anti-Aging Concealer.

To bring out her beautiful dark eyes, Julie began by applying Jouer Long Wear Eye Brightening Primer and Jouer Creme Mousse Eyeshadow in Twilight on the lids. Then she shaded the crease with NARS Duo 413 BLKR (black with red pearls and shimmer amethyst) and rimmed the waterline with Urban Decay Waterproof All Night Long Black Liner. She finished by sweeping the black with red pearls along the lower lash line with a small fluff brush to set the liner.

Julie shaded Camila’s cheekbones with Anastasia Contour Powder and blended Jouer Blush along the cheeks. She also dusted on a light coat of Urban Decay Naked Powder in Medium to Dark.

She finished by applying NARS Audacious Lipstick in Liv with her finger to give her a stain of bordeaux colour, followed by a hint of BY TERRY Baume De Rose.

Get The Look: Kat Dennings amfAR LA Inspiration Gala Makeup

Kat Dennings amfar makeupCelebrity hairstylist Gregory Russell and celebrity makeup artist Beau Nelson worked with Kat Dennings for the amfAR LA Inspiration Gala on Wednesday (October 29).

HAIRSTYLIST GREGORY RUSSELL

On his beauty inspiration Gregory said, “We decided on a high-shine wave set to complement Kat’s gown tonight.”

Here’s how to get the look.

On damp hair, he applied R+Co Chiffon Styling Mousse through the roots and lengths of the hair. He then blew it out with a ceramic round brush and pin curled each section, securing with clips. He then curled each section with a 1 inch curling iron and again pin curled to cool.

After hair was cooled, starting at the nape, he softly brushed out each section with a Mason Pearson Popular Brush. Once brushed all the way through, he sprayed Serge Normant Dry Oil through the lengths and brushed again until his reached his desired shape.

Finally, he pinned the waves where he wanted them and set the style with R+Co Outer Space Flexible Hairspray.

MAKEUP ARTIST BEAU NELSON

Sharing his beauty inspiration, Beau said “Kat really is a natural beauty, so I wanted to accentuate that. The inspiration for this look came from the beautiful colours in the skin from classical paintings. I wanted to heighten the beautiful skin colours I see naturally in Kat’s face and take them to a surreal level.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Her skin was kept matte using Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation on a flat brush. He used Cinema Secrets Concealer under the eyes and on any redness, and powdered the skin with La Mer Loose Powder.

Bobbi Brown Blush in Pretty Coral gave a soft natural flush to the cheek and sculpted the cheekbone and jawline using Surratt Blush in Grisaille to contour.

Her eyelids are naturally a really pretty peachy-brown, so he mixed two shades of blush from NARS (Silvana and Gina) and washed them (using a soft domed shadow brush) over her eyelids, blending them to slightly above the crease of her eyes to give a heightened sense of colour.

On her lips he applied Tom Ford Lipstick in Casablanca, blotted it, and then dusted on a tiny bit of loose powder to make it matte.

Get The Look: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Shimmering Eyes

unnamedCelebrity makeup artist Lisa Storey worked with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for the FORWARD by Elyse Walker & Anthony Vaccarello Dinner on Wednesday (October 22).

Lisa explains, “Rosie wanted a simple look for a casual event so I focused on a shimmering eye.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Lisa began by dusting the lighter shade of the Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in Seductive Rose over the entire eyelid, followed by the darker shade on the edge of the eye, top and bottom.

She used a small, soft brush to give a tinge of colour from the darker shade and applied the light-pink shade more intensely to the inner corner of the eye. Then she framed the eye behind the lash line with Tom Ford Eye Defining Pen, extending the line out beyond the lash line to give the eye a little lift. She then applied Dior Blackout Mascara to the top and bottom lashes.

On the cheeks she used Tom Ford Cheek Color in Wicked to give a vibrant pinky glow.

On the lips she used L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Glossy Balm in My Baby Doll.

Lisa finished with a light dusting of Tom Ford Illuminating Powder.
