lupita2Lupita Nyong’o dazzled in pearl embellished Calvin Klein Collection dress at Sunday evening’s 2015 Oscar Awards red carpet. With such an elegant custom gown, it was only natural for Celebrity Makeup Artist Nick Barose to create an equally stunning beauty look.

While keeping the eyes soft and polished, Nick concentrated on enhancing her radiant skin and topping off the look with a stunning Old Hollywood deep red lip. The final look featured elements of classic Hollywood beauties while playing up Lupita’s best features.

Here’s how to get her glowing modern classic Hollywood look.

Well prepped skin is an essential step for this look. Nick began by blending Lancôme Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate onto Lupita’s skin and Lancôme Genifique Eye Light Pearl Eye Illuminating Youth Activating Concentrate over the under eye area. To ensure a flawless base, he primed the skin with Lancôme La Base Pro Perfecting Makeup Primer.

Once skin was fully hydrated and primed, Nick applied a neatly blended layer of Lancôme Miracle Cushion Liquid Cushion Compact in 500 (launching April 2015). For a more precise and flawless finish, Nick corrected any imperfections along the skin with a blend of Lancôme Le Duo Stick in Suede and Lancôme Le Corrector Pro Concealer Kit in 550.

Once the skin was perfected, Nick moved onto the eyes. For a more prolonged wear, Nick prepped Lupita’s lids with Lancôme Aquatique Waterproof Eyecolor Base in Sienne #5. Moving onto color, Nick created a subtle neutral look using Lancôme Color Design 5-Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Gris Fumee and lined the both lash lines with Lancôme Artliner in Noir and Lancôme Le Stylo Waterproof Eyeliner in Noir.

Nick began by moisturizing the lips with Kiehl’s Lip Balm. For that beautiful rich vintage color, Nick lined Lupita’s lips with Lancôme Le Lipstique Lip Coloring Stick in Sheer Chocolate and topped it off with a swipe of Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Lipcolor in Aubergine Velvet.

Get The Look: Emma Stone’s Coral Spring Oscars Beauty Look

Emma StoneWhether it was her beaded chartreuse Elie Saab gown or her soft coral beauty look, Emma Stone was certainly bringing some spring cheer to Sunday’s Oscars red carpet. Celebrity Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin created a look that was built around a complementary coral hue that played on the soft green tone of Emma’s dress.

“I really wanted to let the color speak, but with a fun, unexpected twist, so I chose a beautiful, peachy-coral lip to complement it,” says Rachel, “her look is soft and ethereal, with the total feeling of spring.”

Here’s how Rachel created this spring coral look:

Like all good looks, beginning with clean fresh skin is a must. To ensure a smooth, flawless base, Rachel prepped Emma’s skin with Chanel Hyrda Beauty Micro Sérum and followed with Revlon PhotoReady Prime + Anti Shine Balm. Rachel then blended Chanel Perfection Lumière Long-Wear Flawless Fluid Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF15 in 10 Beige onto the skin.

To get that soft coral flush along the cheeks, Rachel applied Chanel Powder Blush in Angelique to the apples of Emma’s cheeks and softly blended it outwards.

This look was all about light playful eyes. Using a blend of tones from the Chanel Limited Edition Lumières Facettes Quadra Eye Shadow, Emma’s eyes were subtly highlighted and shaped. Rachel then lined the eyes with Chanel Écriture de Chanel Eyeliner Pen in Brun. Finally, Emma’s eyes were beautifully framed by a generous coating Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara in Black on her lashes.

For that poppy coral lip, Rachel began by defining the lips with Chanel Precision Lip Definer in Rouge Candy. She then layered REVLON Ultra HD Lipstick in HD Tulip over the liner which gave the lips the perfect spring coral shade.

Get The Look: Margot Robbie’s Fiery Beauty Look at the 2015 Oscars

87th Annual Academy Awards - ArrivalsMargot Robbie stunned in a sultry black Saint Laurent dress at Sunday’s Oscar. Her dress was beautiful, but it was Margot’s fiery beauty look that had many talking. Celebrity makeup artist Tyron Macchausen drew inspiration from vintage Hollywood starlets and created a modern and cool look that boldly complemented her gown.

Starting with freshly cleansed skin, Tyron primed Margot’s skin using Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer to create a smooth and flawless base for foundation. Once skin was sufficiently primed, Tyron evenly blended Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup in Honey & Beige onto her skin. He then lightly applied Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer in Sand along the under eye area for a soft airbrush-like finish.

Once skin was set, Tyron moved ont contour. He sculpted Margot’s cheekbones with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light for a lightly contoured finish. To achieve that radiant luminous sheen, Tyron dusted Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Luminous Light along the upper cheeks.

Tyron wanted a give Margot a more emphasized and pronounced brow and used a both Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Blonde and Soft Brunette to achieve that desired look. Using a blend of products in different shades gives the brows a more dimensional look.

Tyron played up Margot’s eyes by applying Hourglass 1.5 mm Mechanical Gel Eyeliner to the inner lash lines while keeping the lids bare. He then generous coated her upper lashes with Hourglass Film Noir Mascara.

For that powerful lip, Tyron used two key products. Tyron created more precise lip shape with Hourglass Panoramic Long Wear Lip Pencil in Raven and swiped an even coat of Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Raven atop that. The final result was a beautifully matte poppy orange red lip.

Get The Look: Allison Williams’ Michael Kors Braided Hairstyle

Allison Williams Hair

Celebrity hairstylist Rebekah Forecast worked with Allison Williams for the Michael Kors Fall 2015 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week on Wednesday (February 18).

When describing her beauty inspiration, Rebekah said, “Allison has a strong sense of personal style so she always has great ideas for beauty looks. We drew inspiration from her outfit and, based on the proportions, we knew we wanted to keep the hair back.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Beginning with clean, towel-dried hair, Rebekah applied Kerastase Resistance Mousse Volumifique from the mid shaft to the ends of the hair and Serge Normant Meta Lush Volumizer to the roots.

Next she blow dried the hair straight and created a centre parting. She also used a flat iron to remove any waves and applied a bit of Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray.

She then pulled the hair back into two sections from mid ear to just under the crown and plaited the sections, creating a fishtail braid. She ran though the back with a flat iron again to keep the look as sleek as possible.

To cover the elastic and add a sweet (but not too sweet) touch, she tied a leather bow to the end of the braid. She finished with Shu Uemura Art of Hair Essence Absolue on the ends for shine.

Goya Cinema Awards 2015 - Red CarpetBobbi Brown makeup artist Raquel Serrano worked with Megan Montaner for the 2015 Goya Awards on Saturday (February 7).

Raquel’s goals were to enhance Megan’s skin, highlighting her cheekbones to create an irresistible magnetism.

To achieve that brightness Raquel prepped Megan’s skin with Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream before brightening her under-eye with Hydrating Eye Cream. She then applied Bobbi Brown Medium to Dark Bisque Corrector and Warm Natural Creamy Concealer Kit.

To create flawless skin Raquel blended Bobbi Brown Warm Natural Skin Foundation Stick all over the face. For a long-wear effect she blended Bobbi Brown Warm Natural Sheer Finish Pressed Powder after the foundation.

Adding some warmth, she added a touch of Bobbi Brown Golden Light Bronzing Powder paired with Bobbi Brown Tawny Blush on her cheeks, and followed by softly dusting Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Brick to boost luminosity.

To define and enhance the eyes, Raquel applied the following light eye shadows: Bobbi Brown Ivory Eye Shadow, Blonde Eye Shadow, Antique Rose Eye Shadow and Beige Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow, before applying Bobbi Brown Black Ink Long Wear Gel Eyeliner, drawing an impactful up line. Framing the eyes, she finished by defining Megan’s brows with Bobbi Brown Dark Brow Kit and Mahogany Natural Brow Shaper.

Raquel wanted to emphasise Megan’s lips, creating depth with two different and bold shades – Bobbi Brown Crimson Rich Lip Color and Red Carpet Creamy Matte Lip Color.

She lined her lips before and after with Chocolate Lip Liner to get a long-wear effect and add definition.

Get The Look: Katy Perry’s Sultry Cat-Eye Grammy Awards Look

57th GRAMMY Awards - ArrivalsThe ever-evolving Katy Perry proves that there is no style too outrageous for her to try at least once. The radiant artist sparkled on the Grammy Awards red carpet in a sheer Zuhair Murad embellished dress and an orchid-hued tousled bob hairstyle that perfectly complemented her sultry beauty look.

With such a bold look, celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey created an elegant makeup that played up Katy’s greatest features without looking too over done. Jake didn’t wait to complete with the bright tones of her hair and opted to use warm bronzes throughout the look.

Here’s how Jake achieved this sultry cat-eye look:

To create that flawless finish on the skin, Jake began by layering CoverGirl Stay Fabulous Outlast 3-in-1 Foundation onto skin with a flat kabuki foundation brush. The flat compact style of the brush allowed Jake to evenly work the product into the skin and create a streak free application that looked softly airbrushed. Jake revisits the skin after the eyes are complete and sets the foundation with a light dusting of CoverGirl Clean Powder.

For that dramatic face-framing brow, Jake emphasized Katy’s brows with CoverGirl Powder Brow + Liner in Medium Brown.

It was all about the eyes with this look. He started by blending the darkest shade of the CoverGirl Eye Shadow Quads in Blooming Blushes onto the outer creases and pulling it into the crease. Jake then saturated a shadow brush with the second darkest and layered it the lids. He continued the gradient effect by applying the third shade on the inner lids. He finished by applying the lightest shade in the tear ducts as a highlight which opened up the eyes and gave the illusion of a brighter effect overall.

To achieve that bold black graphic cat eye, Jake expertly lined Katy’s eyes with CoverGirl Bombshell Intensity Liner and finished the eyes with a two generous coats of CoverGirl Full Lash Bloom by LashBlast Mascara on both the upper and lower lashes.

To accentuate the cheeks, Jake used CoverGirl Clean Glow Blush for both definition and color. He sculpted the cheekbones with the darkest shade in the compact and followed with the lightest tone on the apples of the cheeks.

Jake finished the look with the perfect molten bronze lip. He layered CoverGirl Colorlicious Lipstick in Sultry Sienna under a slight swipe of CoverGirl Colorlicious Lip Gloss in Melted Coffee.
