Get The Look: Kate Bosworth’s ‘Gala in the Garden’ Hair & Makeup

Hammer Museum's "Gala In The Garden" Honoring Joni Mitchell And Mark BradfordCelebrity makeup artist Lisa Storey and celebrity hairstylist Bridget Brager worked with Kate Bosworth for the Hammer Museum’s ‘Gala in the Garden’ on Saturday (11 October).

MAKEUP ARTIST LISA STOREY
Lisa shares her beauty inspiration: “We decided on a look that transitioned from the end of summer to fall, and worked perfectly with Kate’s soft cream-white form-fitting Alexandre Vauthier Couture and diamonds.”

Here’s how to get the look.

On the outer edge of the eye, Lisa applied Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Plum, followed by the same stick in Orchid across the centre of the lid to the inner corners.

Next she used Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in Seductive Rose – the darker shade in the outer lid and blending the lighter shades towards the middle lid and corner of the eye. Then she blended into the contour of the eye to create a soft fading gradient of colour. The eyebrows were gently filled using Dior Eyebrow Pencil in Blonde to give a softer, warm look. She applied a light lick of Dior Blackout Mascara to give a little depth.

She blushed Kate’s cheeks with Chanel Cream Blush in Chamade and lightly contoured the cheekbones with Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Intensity 1.

Lisa finished the look with Tom Ford Indian Rose Lipstick and dusted the face with Tom Ford Illuminating Powder.

HAIRSTYLIST BRIDGET BRAGER
Bridget shares her hair inspiration: “We went for an understated hairstyle. The dress and jewels were such a statement and so beautiful that I wanted to keep on the cool side with a textured pony. She was going to a cocktail party, after all!”

Here’s how to get the look.

Bridget prepped Kate’s damp hair with O&M Atonic Thickening Spray. She dried her hair so as much natural texture as possible would come out – a lot of scrunching the hair up and then over, directing the hair from side to side.

After her hair was dry, Bridget used a 1.5 inch curling iron and picked out random sections of hair to curl horizontally. She curled up and then curled down the same section so no curl pattern was the same. She wanted lived-in hair.

Once all the hair was set, she sprayed Bumble and bumble City Swept onto the lengths of the hair and gave the hair a good shake. Then she secured the ponytail with a bungee just under the crown of the head. She wrapped a piece of hair around the bungee and secured it with a hairpin.

To finish, she used a light spray of L’Oreal Elnett Hairspray.

Get The Look: Emmy Rossum’s ‘Gala in the Garden’ Sleek Parisian Ponytail

Hammer Museum 12th Annual Gala In The Garden With Generous Support From Bottega Veneta

Celebrity hairstylist Cervando Maldonado worked with Emmy Rossum for the Hammer Museum’s ‘Gala in the Garden’ on Saturday.

Cervando shares his inspiration: “The inspiration for the look was a sleek Parisian ponytail.”

Here’s how to get the look.

He began by applying two pumps of Leonor Greyl Serum de Soie Sublimateur to slightly damp hair, distributing evenly throughout.

Next he blew the hair dry using a Harry Josh Blow Dryer and flat-ironed section by section, bottom to top with a Harry Josh Flat Iron. This left the hair shiny and very straight.

Then he sprayed Serge Normant Meta Sheer Dry Finishing Spray lightly throughout the hair to create extra shine and sleekness. After that he parted the hair in a deep side part and applied Osmo Clay Wax, running it through the hair. He then took a comb and combed through the hair, really making it hold together and stay close to the head. He pulled all the hair back to the nape, pinching it tight, and wrapped a bungee-cord hair tie around the hair very tightly, creating a low ponytail. Then he took a piece of the ponytail and wrapped it around the hair tie to cover and camouflage it.

Next he poured a nickel-sized amount of Shu Uemura Nourishing Protective Oil, rubbed it in his hands, then distributed it through the whole head from the top to the ponytail, which created major shine and a wet look. He finished off by spraying Frederic Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray for one last bit of hold and shine.

Get The Look: Megan Fox’s Ferrari’s 60th Anniversary In The USA Gala Bold Red Lip

Ferrari's 60th Anniversary In The USACelebrity makeup artist Monika Blunder worked with Megan Fox for Ferrari’s 60th Anniversary in the USA gala on Saturday.

Monika explained her inspiration: “Megan wore a red Versace dress and I matched the lip colour exactly to the dress. The look was effortless and chic. On her eyes I did hardly anything, just a very thin black eyeliner and a pop of shimmer in the inner corners of her eyes.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Monika started off by applying Clé de Peau Silk Cream Foundation in 030 with a foundation brush all over her skin. For a bit of coverage under her eyes, she then used NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard.

On her brows she used Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Dark Brown and only filled in the gaps. She also created a bit more of an arch.

For this look it was really important to Monika not to use too much product on Megan’s eyes, so all she used was a bit of highlighter and shimmer, and a very thin line of eyeliner. She began by applying Shiseido Shimmer Cream Eye Color in Sunshower and Sparkling Copper Rose on her upper eyelid and on the lower lash line. Then she applied a very thin layer of Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Precision Long Wear Liquid Eyeliner on the upper lash line, adding a little flick to the outer corners of the eyes. After that she curled the lashes and applied three coats of Sisley So Intense Mascara in Black on the upper and lower lashes. She also applied Ardell Individual Lashes in short and medium.

To add a bit of colour to the cheeks she used Lorac Matte Satin Baked Blush in Velvet Rope and added a bit of highlighter by applying Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light.

Finally, she finished this look with a red lip by applying Stila Lip Liner in #25 and Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Creme Lipstick in Icon.

Get The Look: Kristen Stewart’s New Hair Cut

"Camp X-Ray" New York PremiereHair stylist Giannandrea worked with Kristen Stewart for the premiere of ‘Camp X-Ray’ on Monday.

When talking about the inspiration behind her new haircut, he said “I wanted to give Kristen a chic and effortlessly stylish new cut, something to perfectly reflect her personality. The proportions are extremely important with a short haircut. I wanted to preserve the femininity while still bringing an edge to the look, and using a combination of thinning shears and a razor allowed me to achieve this balance. And of course, we wanted to have fun with it!”

Here’s how he created the look.

He began by chopping away the back and the sides of the hair with a pair of thinning shears to help create a steep layered grading and proceeded to razor cut the whole top to give Kristen her edgy long pointed ends. This cutting technique is playful and softly shapes the neck and cheekbones.

After cutting, he applied Macadamia Professional Foaming Volumizer all over the roots to create a thick base texture. He blow-dried her hair with his hands to lift the roots and directed the front base roots forward without losing the base volume. After drying the hair, he then used Macadamia Professional Control Working Spray, sectioning her hair into small and medium sections and using an infrared flat iron on the ends.

Lastly, he took a dime-sized amount of Macadamia Professional Whipped Detailing Cream and, using his fingers, created a deep side zigzag part to swoop over, and then twisted each section to finesse the texture.

Get The Look: Kiernan Shipka’s Soft Wavy Tresses

Michael Kors Celebrates The Launch Of Claiborne Swanson Frank's "Young Hollywood" Portrait BookCelebrity hairstylist Bridget Brager worked with Kiernan Shipka to achieve the soft wavy tresses she sported while attending Claiborne Swanson Frank’s ‘Young Hollywood’ book launch hosted by Michael Kors on Thursday.

Sharing her beauty inspiration, Bridget said “Kiernan’s look was inspired by her beautiful Michael Kors dress. We opted for soft waves and shine.”

Bridget started by applying Kerastase Mousse Bouffante Luxurious Volumizing Mousse from roots to ends. Then she rough dried the hair until it was 85% dry and used a large round brush to smooth the hair until it was completely dry. For a quick and beautiful blow out, rough drying hair allows natural texture and volume to come out. Once you have a good foundation, using a round boar-bristle brush skinnies and smoothes the hair down and brings it together, which allows shine to come to the surface.

Next she sectioned out Kiernan’s bangs and used a large velcro roller, rolling the bangs back and away from the face for a swoopy soft bang effect, and secured with a duck-bill clip.

Using a 1.25 Inch T3 curling iron, she wrapped 1 inch sections of hair vertically, starting at the mid-shaft of each section and moving back towards the face, making sure to curl the ends. Once all the hair was set and cooled, she softened the waves by brushing them out. Then she used Kerastase Short Mania Semi-Matte Sculpting Paste and scrunched it into the hair for texture and light hold.

After brushing the bangs into place, Bridget finished the look with an all-over mist of Oribe Superfine Hairspray.

Get The Look: Vera Farmiga’s ‘The Judge’ LA Premiere Makeup

"The Judge" - Los Angeles Premiere - ArrivalsCelebrity makeup artist Dawn Broussard worked with Vera Farmiga for the premiere of ‘The Judge’ this week.

Dawn shared her beauty inspiration: “For Vera’s premiere look I wanted to create a modern yet unique and unexpected tone. I created a smouldering effect with the eye shadow shades, deflecting on the hints of rose in the colour and texture of her Elie Saab dress.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Dawn started by prepping the skin with Hourglass Primer, gently working it into the skin with a Shiseido Foundation Brush. Using the same brush, she applied Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide in Shell. In keeping with the same tool, she finds it helps with the mixture of the two products. The more you work it into the skin, the more seamless the texture becomes. Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-2 I was then applied lightly to the under-eye area, forehead, chin and bridge of the nose to highlight and to conceal any imperfections. She dusted translucent powder very sparingly over the edges of the face, keeping the skin looking fresh and luminous.

NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Dolomites was used to blend around the eyes. This colour combo is amazing for creating a smouldering look, yet is still playful – the hints of rose quartz and dark chocolates glisten on the eyes. This is one of her new favourites for the fall palette. Dawn used only these two colours to create the look, blending them softly together and washing them over the eyes.

She lined the lower lash line with the darker colour, yet kept it quite close to the lash line. Dawn then added the rose quartz in the corners of the eye for a boost and a highlight. Using a Lash Card by Elizabeth Mott, she applied Lancôme Hypnose Drama Mascara in Excessive Black. You place the Lash Card right on the lash line and then move the mascara wand up the lashes onto the card. This really helps paint the lashes much more precisely and any excess product will remain on the card as opposed to the skin.

Tarte Brow Mousse in Taupe filled in her brows ever so slightly on the edges to create a bolder shape. Keeping the brow hairs in place perfectly was Tarte Tinted Brow Gel in Taupe. This product has such a precise brush and the colours are perfection.

Dawn then blended NARS Contour Blush in Olympia right underneath the cheekbone and around the edges of the face to give structure and depth where it was needed. Keeping a bright healthy pink glow, she used NARS Blush in Mata Hari.

The lip colour she wanted to keep neutral yet with a hint of freshness. Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon in Sedona Sands is a wonderful nude colour with a hint of flush. She also used MAC Lip Pencil in Oak for slight definition.
