Get The Look: Megan Montaner Goya Awards Bold Lip

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 was inspired by Megan herself, saying, “She is a strong, confident and sensuous woman.”

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.

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.
