Get The Look: Jenna Dewan-Tatum WHCD Bold Matte Red Lip

101st Annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner - Inside ArrivalsCelebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta worked with Jenna Dewan-Tatum for the 2015 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner on Saturday, (April 25) in Washington, DC.

Patrick said, “We wanted Jenna to look strong and bold for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, so we went with a sultry but romantic eye and a bold matte red lip.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Patrick began by moisturizing her skin to allow a smooth application of the foundation.

He then applied Calvin Klein All Day Wear Foundation mixed with Becca Illuminating Primer to give good coverage and a healthy glow. To conceal under her eyes and highlight, he used Urban Decay Concealer in Light Neutral. To contour he used Chanel Cream Bronzer on the hollows of her cheek bones. He then set the entire face with La Mer Translucent Powder, because he knew it would be a long night and we needed her makeup to last.

He wanted to keep her cheeks from looking flushed, so he used a flesh tone colour on the apples of her cheeks.

For the eyes he applied MAC Paint Pot Primer to ensure the eyeshadow would stay all night without creasing. He used shadows from Kat Von D’s new matte neutral palette, starting off with a soft brown in the crease followed by a deeper brown on the outer crease. He decided on a winged liner to add a more dramatic touch and blended it out with the black shadow. He applied Ardell Lashes in Medium and Long to finish off the eyes.

Jenna LOVES a bold lip, so Patrick applied Kevyn Aucoin Red Lip Pencil to create the perfect lip shape and then applied Melt Cosmetics Matte Red Lipstick in Belladonna 2.

2015 Time 100 GalaCelebrity hairstylist Michael Silva and celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic worked with Kim Kardashian for the 2015 Time 100 Gala on Wednesday (April 21).

Hairstylist Michael Silva

Sharing his beauty inspiration, Michael said, “We decided on a sleek pony for a chic look. We wanted to allow the neckline of the dress to show and also thought a pony would complement the volume of the skirt.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Michael first prepped Kim’s wet hair using Shu Uemura Ample Angora Mousse all over. He then added some Kerastase Touche Final Serum on ends and throughout.

Blow drying her hair section by section before he flat ironed it, he then created a centre part and secured it into a low ponytail.”

Makeup Artist Mario Dedivanovic

For Kim’s makeup Mario went for a bold brow and classic smokey eye, but added some gold shadow along the lower lash line to soften the look. He mixed the two shades from the NARS Dual Intensity Blush in Jubilation and applied along the lower lash line with a wet brush to intensify the gold a bit. He filled her brows using Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium Brown and set them with the Clear Brow Gel, also by Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Mario then curled Kim’s lashes and applied Ardell Individual Lashes in Medium. He finished the eyes with a couple of coats of L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black.

To add glow to her cheeks, he used Tom Ford Blush in Love Lust along the apples of the cheeks and to highlight he used Charlotte Tilbury Film Star Bronze and Glow along the cheek bones, bridge of the nose and cupid’s bow.

For the lips, he applied Dainty Lip Gloss by Anastasia Beverly Hills.

To finish the look and to give the skin a healthy glow, he sprayed Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist over the makeup.

Get The Look: Kate Bosworth’s Part Braided Part Bun Coachella Hair Style


Bridget Brager worked with Kate Bosworth for the 2015 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

“The inspiration for Kate’s festival hair was a nod to the 90’s half up half down, grunge chic, slept in hair with a twist (or a braid!).” said Bridget.

Bridget explains how to recreate this look.

“Starting on second day dry hair, take a small section (no larger than the width of the tip of your ring finger) of hair where you would normally have a centre part. This section should end at the crown of your head, just before your head starts to curve.

Once this section is created, begin to make a cornrow braid towards your forehead. Finish the braid where your hairline stops on your forehead and make two sections by splitting the third strand of the braid. To secure the braid, use a small bobby pin. Push the pin up the middle of the braid as flat to the head as possible. Split the lengths of the hair around the face to create framing.

Next, sprinkle Kevin Murphy Powder Puff to lengths of hair for added texture. Then gather hair, starting from the top of the ears, back in to a half up half down knot. Secure with a clear elastic band. Let any pieces around the face fall down to tuck behind the ears.

Finish the look using Bumble and bumble Does It All Hairspray.”

Beauty Trend Spotting: Unicorn Hair

Beauty Trend Spotting 'Unicorn' Hair

A constellation of beauties have undergone a mythical transformation, channeling their inner unicorn with a kaleidoscope of bold hair hues. These pastel princesses have left their roots behind to seek out more colourful pastures, turning the idea of ‘au naturel’ on its head with their allover shades.

Julianne Hough is one of the most recent starlets to embrace the trend, as she flaunted a new pretty-in-pink, bubblegum ’do to perfection for a simultaneously sassy, girly, and chic effect.

Hilary Duff perhaps surprised many us when she also looked to the rainbow for inspiration and debuted her mermaid locks, experimenting with teal-blue waves.

Meanwhile, Amber Rose clearly decided that blues have way more fun than blondes taking her platinum buzz cut to a vibrant electric shade.

And while Katy Perry may have just recently sheared her mane into a brunette crop, her chameleon-like tendencies have seen her rock all varieties of candy-coloured shades, including lavender-purple at the 2015 Grammy Awards.

My Little Pony has nothing on these manes.

Get The Look: January Jones’ Clean Modern ‘The Last Man On Earth’ Premiere Hair

"The Last Man On Earth" Los Angeles PremiereCelebrity hairstylist Bridget Brager worked with January Jones for the premiere of ‘The Last Man On Earth’ on Tuesday (February 24).

“Our inspiration was clean, modern, soft structure,” said Bridget.

Here’s how to get the look.

She prepped January’s air dried hair using Phtyo Volumizing Spray at the roots, on the top, and on the sides of her head.

Using her Bumble and bumble Boar Bristle Flat Brush and her Harry Josh Blow Dryer, she smoothed out her hairline and added a bit of volume to her hair.

Next she created a deep side part and also parted her hair from just behind the ear to meet the deep side part at the crown of her head. She clipped the top left and side section away. She then gathered the rest of her hair into a sleek bun just below the crown of her head using Oscar Blandi Pronto Instant Glossing Cream to smooth out flyaways and give a clean sleek look. Using hair pins to hold the bun in place.

With the remaining hair, she created pin curls by setting 3/4 inch sections of hair with a 3/4 inch curling iron. Once the set hair was cool, she brushed the hair down and toward her face and created a deep smooth wave effect.

To finish using Oribe Superfine Hairspray once all over.
