Get The Look: Elizabeth Banks’ AMAs Makeup

2014 American Music Awards - ArrivalsCelebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles worked with Elizabeth Banks for the 2014 American Music Awards on Sunday.

Fiona explains her beauty inspiration. “Clean with colour was the inspiration to complement Elizabeth’s dress for the American Music Awards. She looks so great with a strong brow and a bright lip – it’s my favourite way to make her up.”

Here’s how to get the look

She began with Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation #023 and Tom Ford Concealing Pen in Medium/Light. She also used a bit of Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder.

For contour and highlighter, she used Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow. To bring out those cheeks she used NARS Sex Machine and Chanel Les Beiges #30 blush.

Fiona said that a little contour gives a modern, sculpted look with just a touch of blush for a subtle flush. Plus it keeps the contour from looking too severe.

On the brows she used Anastasia Brow Wiz in Medium Ash.

For the eyes, she just used a combination of a powder highlighter and contour instead of eyeshadow (Kevyn Aucoin The Sculpting Powder and MAC Lightsweep Highlighter). She likes using taupe because it adds depth without looking like a lot of makeup. It makes the eye colour pop and it doesn’t compete with the rest of the makeup. She used Antonym Eyeliner in Noir, a deep inky black pencil, to line the upper lid right along the lashes and then swiped Surratt Autographique Liquid Liner in Chat Noir on top of it to make it even blacker.

Loads of Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes in Glossy Black were applied on the top and a coat on the bottom to give the eyes a bit of 60s flavour.

For the lips she didn’t want to exactly match the colours in her dress so she mixed an orange and fuchsia to get a custom electric pink that lands in between the red and orange of the dress (Butter London LIPPY Moisture Matte Lipstick in Ladybird & Dahling).

Get The Look: Kristen Stewart’s Rocker Chic ‘Still Alice’ Screening Edgy Look

unnamed (1)Celebrity hairstylist Giannandrea worked with Kristen Stewart for the AFI FEST 2014 premiere of ‘Still Alice’ last night (November 12), creating an edgy look for her Chanel frock.

Giannandrea’s inspiration was simple: “Rocker Chic”.

Here’s how to get the look.

He started on wet hair and applied ample amounts of Macadamia Professional Foaming Volumizer to the entire head. Then he created a deep side part on the left side of the head.

Then he combed the hair up and back as if he were creating a pompadour, and with a round brush he blew the hair dry adding extra volume. Next he smoothed the sides back with Macadamia Professional Healing Oil Treatment, giving the hair a sleek, tight look.

Once the whole head was dry he took a good amount of Macadamia Professional Whipped Detailing Cream and ran it throughout the whole top with his hands to create a heavy texture.

Next he took a flat iron and flattened it a bit at the ends to give it an extra edgy look.

To finish, he sprayed the hair with Macadamia Professional Control Working Spray, which set the hair in place without being too stiff.

Robert prepped Chrissy’s skin with Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist and Creme De La Mer. Next he used Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #6.5 to highlight and #7 to match everywhere. He also used #9 around the perimeter and to give a little depth to the face.

On her eyes, he used Charlotte Tilbury Eye Shadow Pencil in Amber Haze along with a few coats of Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara. He also added a few Velour Lashes in Winging It.

Chrissy’s eyebrows were enhanced with Laura Mercier Brow Duo in Brunette.
