Spike TV's "Guys Choice 2014" - ArrivalsAvon Global Celebrity Makeup Artist Lauren Andersen was inspired by the sleek, modern lines of Jessica Alba’s black leather David Koma dress worn to the Spike TV’s ‘Guys Choice 2014′, so she created a beautiful, dark eye look to match.

Lauren started with the Koh Gen Do Foundation as a base, then applied the Avon Ideal Luminous Blush in Heavenly Pink onto her cheeks.

To add some warmth, she then applied the Lorac Mineral Bronzer as a contour.

She gave Jessica’s brows a quick grooming with the Votre Vu Brow Wax.

Then, taking the Avon Glimmersticks Eye Liner in Blackest Black, Lauren lined her eyes and smudged the color out to the outer edge of the eye.

She used the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Liner as an intense shadow color. To get the crisp edge, she used a tissue.

To finish her eyes, she applied false lashes and a coat of Avon Mega Effects Mascara in Black.

She completed the look with a swipe of the Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Pink Renewal, which kept her lips natural, yet with a pop of colour.

Gabrielle Union MakeupCelebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles worked with Gabrielle Union to create her beauty look for the ‘Think Like A Man Too’ LA premiere.

Fiona talks about the inspiration behind the beauty look: “As we were getting ready, Gabrielle, her hairstylist and I talked about the look and the dress. When her hairstylist said he was going to do a tight bun with a deep side part, clean and sleek, and then I saw the two-piece Dolce & Gabbana dress, I knew I wanted to do a red lip and soft eye on Gabrielle. Bronzy skin, a structured brow and flirty lashes looked unfussy while still feeling incredibly elegant.”

Fiona used bronzer on the eyes instead of shadow, to create depth, and skipped liner, making the eye feel not too made up. She wanted to keep the eye all about the lashes, and the look about beautiful skin and a statement lip.

She used false lashes on the top and bottom to open up her eyes, while also giving Gabrielle a stronger brow to balance out the strong lip.

Just a little bronzer on the cheeks gave definition without looking ‘blushy’.

Even though there is a strong lip, the look was all about radiant skin.

Spike TV's "Guys Choice" Awards - ArrivalsCelebrity makeup artist Georgie Eisdell created Jaime King’s smouldering look for her Spike TV’s ‘Guys Choice Awards’ Emilio Pucci frock.

Georgie wanted Jaime’s look to be sexy and strong, yet simple and clean – so her focus was all on her eyes.

Eyes: To create such an intense smokey eye, Georgie first used Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Black Ink along the lash line and in the inner rim. She then went over the liner with NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Sycorax, pulling the shadow up into the crease of her eye and blending out slightly. She brought the shadow under the eye as well to create the smokiness. Then applied a couple layers of YSL Faux Cils Mascara to finish off the eye.

Skin: Jaime’s skin was evened out with Tom Ford Traceless Foundation and then powdered slightly with La Mer Translucent Powder.

Blush: NARS Blush in Final Cut was applied along the cheek bone to add a little bit of colour, but also to contour the cheek bone slightly.

Brows: Jaime’s brows were defined with MAC Brow Duo in Blonde very slightly, just enhancing her natural brow.

Lips: Georgie loves the natural colour of Jaime’s lips, she used Lucas Papaw Ointment for moisture and leaving her natural lip colour to shine.

EMMY ROSSUM copyCelebrity makeup artist Beau Nelson created Emmy Rossum’s beauty look for the Stella McCartney Resort 2015 Presentation.

Beau was inspired by simplicity of Emmy’s Stella McCartney dress. Deciding that a bright lip would be a nice punch of colour for a beautiful spring day.

Here’s how to get Emmy’s look.

Face: Beau started by enhancing Emmy’s flawless complexion using Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer buffed into the skin with a synthetic brush and set with La Mer Translucent Powder. He then contoured her cheeks with taupe blush and added a bit of colour to the apples with Burberry Rose Blush.

Eyes: They were kept neutral with NARS All About Eve Shadow Duo with a touch of Burberry Rose Blush to the crease of the eye.

Lashes & Brows: Emmy’s lash were curled and enhanced with Diorshow Mascara in Black.  Then her brows were filled in using MAC Eyeshadow in Concrete with the Smashbox Eyebrow Brush.

Lips: NARS Lipstick in Carthage was applied on a brush for precision, then blotted and reapplied for a long lasting and ultra vivid colour.

2014 CFDA Fashion Awards - ArrivalsJoan Smalls took us all by surprise with her new ‘do at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards.

New York based hairstylist, Amoy Pitters, told us, “Joan was ready for a change. She didn’t want to appear too done up, but she was hoping for a fresh, easygoing look.”

The new bangs and carefree waves gave her exactly that. Amoy shared the step-by-step process of Joan’s big transformation.

After washing hair, Amoy Couture Hair Sapphire-Jojoba Leave-in Conditioner was mixed with one pump of the J.F. Lazartigue Serum with Shea Butter.

Mixing these two products will further moisturize strands and add shine to the finished look. Be sure to evenly distribute the blend to achieve a smooth consistency.

A blow dryer was used next to absorb any remaining moisture. The secret to achieving Joan’s bouncy waves is to make sure you do not blow dry your hair pin straight. Use a paddle brush in an upward motion on roots to create height.

Amoy separated Joan’s tresses into sections as she used a 1-inch barrel curling iron. Each wave was locked into place using Rene Furterer Vegetal Finishing Spray. Hold the curler towards the end of the hair and be sure to twist each piece in the same direction to mimic the beach texture.

The bangs truly transformed Joan’s look. Amoy recommends that you avoid a blunt cut. Instead, ask your stylist to cut strands on an angle. An edgier cut will create natural movement and add dimension to the tousled waves.
