Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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 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.


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.

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 Kendall Jenner's Vogue Foundation Gala Slick Ponytail

Celebrity hairstylist Christian Wood worked with Kendall Jenner for the Vogue Foundation Gala.
With regards to his inspiration, Christian said:

“As soon as I saw the dress I thought a super-slick and shiny ponytail would give a tough modern edge to the gorgeous Balmain dress.

To achieve this look, first blow dry hair straight using a Babyliss Pro Hair Dryer.

Next, part hair in the centre using a pin-tail comb. Rub Moroccan Oil onto the top and sides of hair and, using a Mason Pearson brush, slick the hair into a low tight ponytail. Secure with a bungee elastic. Wrap a small piece of hair around the elastic and secure with a pin to cover.

Spray Frederic Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray all over the head and quickly comb the hair into the ponytail to create a super-slick, tight and flyaway-free look.

Spray Frederic Fekkai Glossing Mist on the part, almost the same way one would use makeup highlighter to really pick up the shine under lights.

Quickly run a T3 Straightening Iron over the ends of the pony for a poker-straight glossy finish.”

Diane Kruger's Braid

Celebrity hairstylist Kylee Heath worked with Diane Kruger creating her double-braided hairstyle for the premiere of FX’s ‘The Bridge’.

Here is how she created the look.

First, she sprayed Leonor Greyl Spray Structure Naturelle from roots through ends and rough dried the hair, blowing it in all directions.
Then Kylee created a part from the top of the left ear, straight over the head to the top of the right ear. Breaking the section into two, she creating a centre part and clipped away both sections. Starting at the back of the centre part, she then made two partings, creating a triangle section in the back.

The leftover hair on either side of the triangle was also then clipped away, leaving only the triangle section unclipped. She did an inside-out French braid (cornrow) on the triangle section and secured it at the base of the neck with a clear rubber band.

Next, Kylee took down the clipped away sections. Kylee gave the roots a light tease for volume, lightly pulled them back and created a loose French braid (over the top of the triangle-sectioned cornrow).

Braiding the hair until only about 2.5″ was left, she secured it with a clear rubber band and lightly loosened up the braid.

Kylee finished the look with Kevin Murphy Strong Hold Hairspray and Easy Rider.

Chloe Mortez Hair2

Celebrity hairstylist Gregory Russell worked with Chloe Grace Moretz for the 40th Annual Saturn Awards, creating her gorgeous braided look.

Firstly, Gregory applied Kevin Murphy Hair Resort Spray throughout her damp hair and loosely dried it with a medium boar-bristle round brush.

Next, he sectioned her hair from the back of her ear forward and braided one braid up and over to the other side, fastening with a clear elastic band.
Then he used a bungee to fasten the rest of her hair at eye level.

He then split the pony in two and twisted the two sections with one another.

Taking the twist and fastening it into a bun with bobby pins, he then added some braided extensions around the bun for added texture and fullness.

Finally, he pinned the front braid around to the bun and loosened the braid on top to his desired shape.

Jessica Alba And Christopher Gavigan Celebrate The Launch Of The Honest Company At TargetCelebrity hairstylist Davy Newkirk worked with Jessica Alba to create her beachy waves for the launch of The Honest Company at Target.

First, Davy ran some Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil through Jessica’s wet hair, then sprayed the roots with Alterna Bamboo Volume Spray before blow drying her hair using a diffuser.

Davy then curled random sections using a half inch curling iron, starting at the base of the hair and working down.

After curling, Davy ran his fingers through Jessica’s hair blowing it around with blow dryer to give it a more natural texture.

To finish off, Davy used a bit of John Masters Hair Texturizer on random pieces and ends.
