Beauty Trend Spotting: Orange Lipstick

Beauty Trend Spotting Orange Lipstick

With brighter skies comes brighter lipstick, but celebs aren’t waiting for the weather to heat up to try the latest beauty trend- orange toned lipstick. The citrusy color makes a flirty statement and celebs such as Shay Mitchell, Cobie Smulders, Jamie King, and Kristen Bell are setting the tone.

Celebrity makeup artist, Veronica Chu, demonstrated the fiery-orange hue on Shay Mitchell’s pout using Covergirl Lipperfection Lipliner in Passion and Covergirl Lipperfection Lipcolor in Fame.

Cobie Smulders’ tangerine hue can be replicated with a bold colour like Givenchy’s Rouge Interdit Satin Finish Lipstick in Fruity Orange.

Jamie King opted for a tone with a hint of coral. Urban Decay Super- Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Punch Drunk has similar undertones.

Kristen Bell made the look her own with a soft shade similar to the Sephora Collection Ultra Shine Lipgloss in Sweet Orange.

Chrissy Teigen Bold Pink LipChrissy Teigen looked stunning wearing a Monique Lhuillier gown to the 2014 Oscars on Sunday.

Lauren Andresen, celeb makeup artist for Avon, focused on giving Chrissy a bold lip while leaving the rest of her face soft and natural looking.

Starting with Chrissy’s brows, she applied Votre Vu Brow Wax to groom the hairs.

A soft pink eyeshadow from Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Emerald Cut was dusted onto Chrissy’s lids. Her lashes were then fully coated with Avon Mega Effects Mascara.

Her sun-kissed glow was created by using YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation then layering a Lorac Bronzer over it.

Her look was topped off with a swipe of Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Pure Orchid.

Get The Look: Camila Alves’ Classic Look at the Oscars 2014

86th Annual Academy Awards - ArrivalsCamila Alves looked gorgeous on the red carpet wearing Gabriela Cadena to the 2014 Oscars on Sunday.

Celeb makeup artist Patrick de Fontbrune started with Camila’s skin. First, he moisturized her face with vbeaute’s Undercover Agent Anti-Wrinkle Protecting Serum, then patted vbeaute’s Eye Never Anti-Aging Eye Cream around the eye area.

After prepping her base, he then used a tinted moisturizer to even out her complexion, but still giving her more of a sheer coverage. Using Votre Vu Belle Poudre in Golden Medium and Medium, he applied this to her forehead, nose, and eyelids as a primer.

He dusted her lids with Votre Vu’s Palette Play in Copper, specifically choosing a brown beige and gold colors together. He then lined her eyes with a soft, black eyeliner and finished her eye look with coats of mascara.

Her beautifully flushed cheeks were all thanks to Vu-On Rouge in Amourette (available this coming summer). He then contoured her face with bronzer.

New York Fashion Week Beauty Trend: Fresh, Dewy Skin

New York Fashion Week Beauty Trend Fresh, Dewy Skin

There’s nothing better than clear, fresh-looking skin–and we saw exactly that during fashion week. From subtly sculpted cheeks to the perfect placement of highlighter, this look is not only wearable, but it’s totally easy to imitate.

The look at Diane von Furstenberg was ballerina chic. Makeup artist James Kaliardos focused on the contouring of the models’ cheeks by using different shades of concealer. He widened their eyes with a nude liner just on the waterline and topped off the lids with a creamy gray shade and a mauve lip hue for additional sheen. Finishing off with coats of mascara, he truly made the models look as if they were ready for their final bow.

Diane Kendal, for Prabal Gurung, skipped powder to keep a dewy finish for her look. She started with MAC Cosmetics Face and Body foundation as a base and then layered on a rosy cream blush, for the ultimate “flushed” appearance. Brows were brushed up, for a touch of unruly youth. Kendal wanted very little color in the lips, so she applied just a hint of foundation to tone down color.

Rag & Bone also debuted highlighted features and clean skin, but with a twist. Makeup artist Gucci Westman was inspired by Katharine Hepburn and created a contrasting, thick line of black liner that flicked into a wing at the ends. He used pointed Q-tips to clean up the liner shape, making it look really graphic.

Rose and apricot were the shade combo that Tom Pecheux used on models’ cheeks at the Ralph Lauren show. His trick to perfectly flushed apples? Instead of swiping the brush onto the skin, he pushes it in. “Otherwise it just sits on top,” he explained. The top lashes were given generous coats of Estee Lauder’s Sumptuous Two Tone Mascara in black, and the bottom in brown.
