Get The Look: Lady Gaga’s Grammy Awards Metallic Beauty Look

57th GRAMMY Awards - ArrivalsLady Gaga is one artist that is sure to never go unnoticed on the red carpet and Sunday evening’s Grammy Awards was no exception. The seasoned superstar stepped out in a shimmering silver custom Brandon Maxwell gown and sported an equally statement making beauty look.

Celebrity Makeup Artist Sarah Tanno was undoubtedly inspired by the sleek metallic tones of her gown and mimicked those notes in her beauty look. Sarah created a look that emphasized on elongating the eyes and framing them with bold shimmery shadows.

While keeping the rest of the look neutral, Sarah achieve this playful look with these simple steps:

Sarah’s goal was to keep the skin fresh and lit from within. She achieved that brightness by prepping the skin with Shiseido White Lucent Power Brightening Mask and followed by blending Shiseido Bio-Performance Glow Revival Serum to the skin. For further hydration and suppleness, she continued by working Shiseido Bio-Performance Advance Super Restoring Cream into Gaga’s skin.

Once skin was prepped, Sarah blended Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foudation SPF 17 onto the skin from the center of the face out to the framing perimeters.

For a brightening effect along the skin and under eyes, Sarah applied Shiseido Sheer Eye Zone Corrector in Natural. She followed by softly dusting Gaga’s skin with Shiseido Translucent Loose Powder.

For that lustrous defined cheek, Sarah subtly contoured Gaga’s cheeks with Shiseido Bronzer in Medium. She continued to add a natural flush of peach color with Shiseido MAQuillAGE Dramatic Mood Veil Blush in RD100 to the apples of the cheek.

To get that ‘soft metallic shimmer,’ Sarah began by applying Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Tin to the lids and followed with Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Mist in the inner corners of the eyes.

Sarah proceeded by smudging Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Caviar along the lash line and outer corners of the lids for a more accented touch. She set the cream shadow with Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio in Lido. Following with an added layer of drama, Gaga’s eyes were heavily lined with Shiseido Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil in Black and blended upon application.

For the finishing bold touch, Sarah topped Gaga’s lashes with a couple of coats of Shiseido Perfect Mascara Defining Volume in Black.

With such a dramatic look, Sarah opted for a soft muted pout. She defined Gaga’s lips with Shiseido Smoothing Lip Pencil in Hazel and swiped the lips in a coat of Shiseido Lacquer Rouge in Carnelian. A favorite of both Sarah’s and Gaga’s, the result was a soft lip with a satin finish.

Get The Look: Gigi Hadid’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Celebration Super Slick Locks

2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit IssueCelebrity hairstylist Jennifer Yepez worked with Gigi Hadid for the 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue celebration on Tuesday (February 10) in New York City.

“My inspiration came from Gigi’s outfit. On the runway the look was super slick but we didn’t want it to be too severe so we went for something that would be sporty but still feminine. We decided to go very tight on the sides, creating a clean look while also keeping some volume on top. I also wanted to highlight Gigi’s beautiful blonde hair colour,” said Jennifer.

Here’s how to get the look.

First she sectioned the hair starting at the nape and evenly applied Oribe Grandiose Mousse, focusing on the root area for more of a grip to hold the style in place. Using a Mason Pearson Brush, she blow dried the hair flat to Gigi’s head shape.

Next, she took another section and repeated the same process until she got to the front of the head. When she reached the front, she applied double the mousse, focusing mostly on the sides, and blow dried it again using the flat brush.

When she reached the top of the head, she blow dried the hair with a round brush to create volume. Then she applied a small amount of Oribe Balm d’Or from the mid shaft to the ends of the hair and flat ironed it (from the mid shaft down) until it lay smooth.

Once the ends were smooth, she applied Oribe Superfine Strong Hairspray only to the sides of the hair, working one side at a time, spraying only the side being worked on and using the flat brush to smooth it back, following the head shape. Then she moved to the next side.

Once done, she sprayed the top lightly but didn’t brush it out in order to maintain the volume.

She used two large silver clips with small pieces of paper towel underneath each one to hold the sides in place until Gigi was ready to leave. Once she was all set, Jennifer took off the silver clips and Gigi was red carpet ready.

“The dress was a champagne-colour vintage Gaultier so I went with green and golden metallics on her eyes.”

Here’s how to get the look.

He used three Anastasia Beverly Hills Single Eyeshadows: Soft Gold all over as a base and more on the inner corners, Emerald along the crease and outer corners, and Moss swept along the lower lash line together with the Soft Gold shade.

For the lashes, he used Kardashian Beauty Individual Lashes (a few just on the outer corners) followed by L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black.

He used NARS Blush in Orgasm on the cheeks and Eye M Glam Highlighter on the cheekbones and bridge of the nose to highlight.

On the lips he went for a classic Kim K nude, which she loves. He used Tom Ford Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Naked.

For the body he used Supermodel Body by Charlotte Tilbury.

Get The Look: Tessa Thompson’s NAACP Image Awards Makeup

46th NAACP Image Awards Presented By TV One - Arrivals

Celebrity makeup artist Nick Barose, who also works with Lupita Nyong’o, created Tessa Thompson’s red carpet look for the NAACP Image Awards on Saturday (February 7).

Nick likes to start with a good canvas on the skin. He applied Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer along with the Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup Compact and their Light Master Primer with a Beauty Blender to start.

When working on her smoky eye, instead of using a lot of shadows he smudged the liner along the top and bottom lash lines and went back over the lid with the Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in Shadow. It’s dramatic but ends up being softer and easier to wear with a dark lip.

For Nick, false lashes are non-negotiable on the red carpet, but he likes them to look as natural as possible. Tessa wore the Eylure Pro-Lash Individuals with Giorgio Armani Maestro Liquid Eye Liner on top to help conceal the glue. Giorgio Armani Black Ecstasy Mascara was then applied to bring it all together.

Nick applied one coat of the Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in 504 Ecstasy before applying blush on the apples of the cheeks and a little bit of highlighter to finish off the look.

Get The Look: Felicity Jones’ Producers Guild Awards Tousled Bun

Get The Look Felicity Jones' Producers Guild Awards Tousled Bun

Celebrity hairstylist Cervando Maldonado worked with Felicity Jones for the 2015 Producers Guild Awards on Saturday (January 24).

Cervando said, “My inspiration for the look was a modern tousled bun.”

Here’s how to get the look.

On damp hair he first applied Kerastase Volumactive Mousse from roots to ends. Then he sprayed Oscar Blandi Volumizing Spray throughout the hair.

Next he used a Harry Josh Blow Dryer and rough dried the hair until it was almost dry, using a comb on the top of the head and around the hairline to create lift and texture. He used a medium-sized Ibiza Boar Bristle Brush to blow out the hair starting on the top and the front of the head, taking it section by section to create lift and semi-smoothness. After blow drying each section, he put the hair in a small Velcro roller to create lift and hold. Once the hair was set in the rollers from the front of the head to the crown only, he smoothed out the hair around the face with the brush and left the rest of the hair at the back of the head in its natural texture.

Once the hair was dry, he took all of the rollers out except the one at the very front. He then used his hands to rake though the rest of the hair, pulling it up into a ponytail above the occipital bone. He pinched the hair in place and wrapped a bungee hair band around the hair to secure it. Next he took the ponytail and wrapped it around into a loose bun, using bobby pins and hair pins to hold it in place. He then took the last roller out and pushed the remaining hair back with his hands, pinning it in place right above the bun.

Next he sprayed a combination of Oribe Dry Texturing Spray and Sachajuan Volume Powder through the top of the hair and the bun to create great texture and keep the height in the front. He finished it all off with Sachajuan Super Strong Hold Hairspray, spraying lightly through the whole head for a great hold with a natural look.

Get The Look: Jessica Chastain’s Critics’ Choice Awards Loose Braid

Get The Look Jessica Chastain's Critics’ Choice Awards Loose Braid

Celebrity hairstylist Renato Campora worked with Jessica Chastain for the 2015 Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards on Thursday (January 15) in LA.

“The inspiration for Jessica’s hair at the Critics’ Choice Awards came from the beautiful dress. Once I saw the high neckline, I knew we wanted to show that off. Working with the silhouette, I decided to pull the hair off of the face and create a beautiful loose braid in the back. The result was a modern shape that really complemented the whole look,” said Renato.

Here’s how to get the look.

On wet hair, he applied Kerastase Mousse Volumactive and then blew it dry with a large round brush. He wanted the hair to be smooth and shiny.

Next he separated the hair and pulled the top section into a rubber band, wrapping some of the hair around the band. At this point, half of the hair was up and half was down. Then he took about an inch section of hair from below each ear and brought them together. He used a very small rubber band to hold this in place.

Then he created a simple loose braid in the back to keep the look soft. Securing the end with a small rubber band, he finished with Wella Finishing Hairspray.
