Red Carpet Fashion Awards

KeiraKeira Knightley attended the New York Premiere of her latest film Wednesday (June 25) in a beautiful Valentino dress.

While the navy number was enough to wow onlookers, it was her soft tousled hairstyle that truly pulled the full look together.

Celebrity hairstylist Ben Skervin aimed to create a glamorous yet elegantly waved look without looking too harsh.

Ben was inspired by the flowing movement of her dress and felt that Keira’s hair should look and move similarly without losing its shape.

The final classically tousled waved hairstyle perfectly complemented her bold look of the evening.

Using products from the Vidal Sassoon Pro Series, here is how you can recreate this versatile hairstyle yourself:

Prep: After a proper wash and conditioning, Keira’s damp hair was prepped with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Boost & Lift Foaming Air Mousse. Using a tennis ball amount of product, Ben applied the mousse throughout the hair at the roots and lengths for soft, touchable volume.

Style: Once mousse is evenly distributed, he neatly blow dried her hair in sections with a medium round brush. The barreled shaped of the brush helps lift the hair at the roots and gives hair added volume you’d otherwise lose if using a flat brush. Once hair is fully dried and evenly blown out, set hair in a centered part.

Wave: To create Keira’s perfect waves, Ben used a 1-inch barrel curling iron throughout the hair. He sprayed each 1 inch section with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Flexible Hold Hairspray before wrapping each section of hair down the iron. Using this method in place of the classic style of coiling hair up the iron created a soft and polished wave as opposed to a pristine curl. Once each section is set around the iron, release and let cool.

Once hair has sufficiently cooled, give it a naturally tousled look by running fingers through the hair which breaks up the the flawlessly set waves and loosens it up.

Finish: To finish the look, spray hair with a texturizing spray like Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Repair & Finish Spray at the roots for a relaxed and perfectly disheveled look that lasts all evening.

Emmy Rossum Critics Choice MakeupEmmy Rossum dazzled on the red carpet at the 4th Annual Critic’s Choice Television Awards in more ways than one.

The fuchsia Monique Lhuillier gown was paired with a rich coral lip.

Take notes, because fun hues are replacing the classics in beauty. High intensity shades can be worn on any complexion and are an easy way to update your normal routine.

Emmy’s makeup artist for the evening, Jo Baker, says that experimenting with bold tones is something that every woman should try.

Her tips make it easy for anyone to take a shot at the trend and also recreate Emmy’s look.

First, lips were prepped using Chanel Hydra Beauty Nourishing Lip Care. Generously moisturizing before applying lipstick helps the product glide on evenly while also minimizing cracked skin.

There’s nothing worse than wearing a bold color that highlights dehydrated crevices.

After massing the balm in, Givenchy Le Rouge in 201 Rose Taffetas was applied in several layers. The multiple coats maximize the pigment’s saturation.

Take a closer look and you’ll notice that the color doesn’t stop there. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Cosmetic Colour Pencil in Pool Boy was smudged into Rossum’s lash line, creating an aquatic haze.

If you’re not quite ready to mix two extreme shades, Baker recommends pairing slightly off hues to subtly intensify saturation. For instance, try mixing red with orange. The two tones will appear soft yet striking at the same time.

The Paley Center For Media's  Premiere Screening Of FX's "The Bridge"Celebrity hair stylist Kylee Heath worked with Diane Kruger shaping her tresses for the PaleyFest screening of ‘The Bridge’ yesterday evening.

Fresh and full of soft texture was Kylee’s inspiration.

Here’s how she created the look.

She started by spraying the (clean) roots with Leonor Greyl’s Spray Structure Naturelle and then spraying the roots through ends with Original Mineral Atonic Thickening Spray.

After combing the products through, she then blew Diane’s hair out using an Ibiza boar-bristle round brush.

Leonor Greyl Voluforme was sprayed throughout the roots before Kylee added texture by wrapping sections around a 1 1/4 inch iron. Kylee wrapped the front sections away from the face. As she worked her way around Diane’s head she alternated, wrapping some forwards and some backwards.

Once the texture was in and cooled, she massaged the roots of the hair, breaking up the waves, and finished by spraying the hair with Oscar Blandi Lacca Hairspray.

Flyaways were smoothed out with Kevin Murphy Easy Rider.

Rose Byrne 2Celebrity makeup artist Georgie Eisdell worked on Rose Byrne’s makeup for the 2014 Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards.

Inspired by her silver lamé Max Mara strapless jumpsuit, Georgie said, “Rose had a modern ’70′s vibe going on, so I wanted to keep her makeup really clean, cool and chic.”

Here’s how to get her look.

The focus was all on her eyes. Georgie started by using Laura Mercier Matte Eye Shadow in Buttercream all over her eyelids for a flawless base.

Then she mixed Laura Mercier Matte Eye Shadow in Twilight Grey with NARS Eye Shadow in Namibia to get the perfect medium shade of grey.

This colour was applied over her lid, blending into the crease slightly to create a smoky effect. The colour was also applied under her eyes to create a deeper smoky effect, graduating from stronger to lighter toward the inner corner under the eye.

Three layers of CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara in Black concluded things in the eye area.

Rose’s skin was evened out using L’Oreal True Match Foundation and powdered all over with Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder.

A very small amount of Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Color in Honey Mocha was applied to the apple of the cheek and blended back slightly towards the ear.

To define her brows, Laura Mercier Brow duo in Ash was used.

And on her lips, Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Color in Nude #4 gave her a natural pout.

Finally, Tom Ford’s Bronzing Powder in Terra was very lightly applied to the forehead, cheekbones, and chin to add a little warmth.

Spike TV's "Guys Choice 2014" - ArrivalsChanneling the essence of summer, Avon global celebrity makeup artist Lauren Andersen gave Chrissy a summery glow and a coral lip to complement her bright yellow Three Floor dress worn to the Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards.

Using the Votrue Vu Brow Wax, she groomed Chrissy’s brows.

Next, Lauren used the Avon SuperShock Gel Eye Liner in Intense Brown to line her eyes, and followed up with the wash of MAC Crushed Metallic Pigment on her lids.

She then applied the Avon Mega Effects Mascara in Black to widen the eye.

Chrissy’s sun-kissed glow is all thanks to the YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation.

Lauren then layered on a Lorac Bronzer on Chrissy’s cheeks for true radiance.

The look was finished off with a mix of the Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Silky Peach and Wild Ginger.

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.
