Red Carpet Fashion Awards

"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - ArrivalsCelebrity makeup artist Mylah Morales was inspired by Rihanna’s Stella McCartney midriff baring ensemble to create her beauty look.

She first prepped her skin with the vbeaute Buying Time Everyday Crème which she used all over her face.

Next, she used the vbeaute Undercover Agent as a primer to minimize redness, reduces fine lines, and smooth her skin for makeup application.

She focused on giving Rihanna a strong, straight brow by using a dark brow pencil to fill in sparse areas and then finishing off with a brow crème to keep it in place.

She then used a dark bronzer underneath her cheekbones to contour and applied a highlighter directly on the cheek area for a beautiful, natural glow.

She used a taupe-colored shadow all over her lids and lined her eyes with black liner.

To complete the look, she gave her a hint of color with a lilac shade on her lips.

The Cast Of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" Lights The Empire State Building In Honor Of Be Amazing Volunteer DayThe fringed hairstyle is picking up momentum this season as many celebs are deciding to frame their face with perfectly chopped strands.

Emma Stone leads the pack by showing constant versatility with her bangs. We went straight to the source to find out how her bangs never end up looking dull.

Emma’s hairstylist, Mara Roszak, told us that the key to achieving such versatile bangs is to keep the cut on the longer side, creating a tousled look that has amazing movement.

To get Emma’s look ask your stylist for a thick bang that is longer on the side which will softly frame the face.

Think Olivia Newton-John or Jane Birkin. The 70’s played a big role in the inspiration for Emma’s cut, a time when bangs were worn longer and drew attention to the eyes. While at home you can style bangs down or to the side with the Sedu Revolution Nano Tourmaline Iocic Styling Iron.

"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - ArrivalsFashion Designer and TV Personality, Nicole Richie dazzled in more ways than one on the red carpet of the 2014 Met Gala.

The lavender haired beauty opted for an elegant sage-colorred Donna Karan Atelier gown for the evening’s festivities.

Upon looking at her dress and vibrant hair, celebrity makeup artist, Beau Nelson was reminded of an oceanic goddess. The soft accents of her dress and hair inspired Beau to create a look featuring soft shimmers and delicate tones.

“I accented Nicole’s features with subtle highlighting and touches of glitter to complement her teal dress and colorful hair,” says Beau.

Using an array of NYX cosmetics, here is exactly how you can achieve this effortless yet super color look yourself:

Face (complexion): Beau wanted the skin to be multi-dimensional and achieved the look using NYX Cosmetics Mineral Stick Foundation in a variety of tan shades. He concentrated a lighter shade of foundation (Golden Beige) in the center of the cheeks and face and used darker shades (Cool Tan, Warm Tan) on the other perimeter of the face. Using multiple tones on the skin allows for a more contoured and shapely effect to the face.

Cheeks: To further define and enhance Nicole’s face shape, Beau swept NYX Cosmetics Highlight and Contour Powder under her cheekbones. He proceeded by dusting a touch of NYX Cosmetics Baked Blush in Foreplay for a hint of color along the tops of her cheekbones and the Cupid’s bow above her lips.

To achieve that metallic goddess-like glow, Beau applied NYX Cosmetics Born to Glow Liquid in Sunbeam along the same areas.

Eyes: To keep with the softness of the full look, Beau applied the soft russet shades from the NYX Cosmetics The Natural Shadow Palette to her eye lids. To frame the eyes, he applied two cats of NYX Cosmetics Lush Lashes Mascara and a pair of NYX Cosmetics Fabulous Lashes in Nirvana for added volume. For an unexpected tough of added glamour, Beau applied a transparent glitter atop the eye shadow for an ethereal and luxurious finish.

Lips: Keeping with the shimmery oceanic inspirations, Beau topped the look with NYX Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Spirit—a pink nude tone that perfectly complemented her radiant makeup look.

"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - ArrivalsMarion Cotillard stunned on the red carpet on Monday’s Costume Institute Gala at the Met.

While her beautifully intricate navy Christian Dior dress wowed both onlookers and attendees, it was her classic and elegant makeup that truly made the full look exceptional. Seeking inspiration from bombshells of the past, celebrity makeup artist, Christophe Danchaud created a look that was both timeless and ultra-luxurious.

“The dress makes a graphic statement and we complemented it with glowing skin, iridescent eyes and richly pigmented lips,” says makeup artist Christophe Danchaud.

Here is how you can recreate this beautiful look:

Face (complexion): To begin, Christophe prepped Marion’s skin Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum. He followed with Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup in 1.5 and Hourglass Corrective Concealer in Pearl. To finish the skin and give it a glowing from within look, Christophe applied Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light all over the face. The dusting of this powder along the skin created a flattering soft-focus effect.

Cheeks: Keeping in line with the skin’s luxurious glow, he applied Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Radiant Magenta. The golden fuchsia tone of the blush gave the cheek a perfect touch of color and radiance.

Eyes: Using Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow in Exhibition, he began applying the shimmering lilac shade to the entire eye lid area. He then proceeded to blend the dark mauve shade in the duo palette close to her lash line. To lighten and brighten the look, Christophe used a gold pigment on the lids as well. Moving to the lashes, he applied several generous coats of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara.

Brows: To frame Marion’s face, Christophe defined her brows with Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Dark Brunette.

Lips: To achieve that richly pigmented lip color, Christophe began by lining lips with Hourglass Panoramic Long Wear Lip Liner in Raven (Summer Launch) and followed with a mixture of Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in Raven and Muse, all of which created a sensual orange red shade.

Get The Look Kate Upton’s 'The Other Woman' Premiere Polished Updo

Celeb hairstylist Peter Butler created a sleek and polished updo for Kate Upton’s Dolce & Gabbana frock worn to the LA premiere for her newest movie, ‘The Other Woman’.

Starting with damp hair, Peter applied the Leonor Greyl’s Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice all over–a dollop on the top of her head, another split between the sides, and a dollop on the back of the head. He distributed the product throughout the hair and concentrated on the roots. For volume, he used a paddle brush and began to blow-dry her hair.

As he dried her hair, he sprayed the Leonor Greyl’s Spray Structure Naturelle among the different sections for more fullness at the root. The product combined with the blow-drying created more of a lift.

Before he began curling her tresses, he used the Eclat Naturel sparingly for more of a textured and “wet” look. He curled her hair in small sections with a large-barrel curling wand.

To form the updo, he raked Kate’s hair back with his fingers and pulled it into a ponytail. He secured this with an elastic band with hooks to “keep the ponytail in place so the hair doesn’t slide and get loose afterwards”.

Peter then wrapped the ponytail around the base and used a few hairpins to keep it budge-proof.

As a finishing touch, he spritzed the Leonor Greyl’s Lacque Souple to keep the shape throughout the night’s festivities.
