Get The Look: Kat Dennings amfAR LA Inspiration Gala Makeup

Kat Dennings amfar makeupCelebrity hairstylist Gregory Russell and celebrity makeup artist Beau Nelson worked with Kat Dennings for the amfAR LA Inspiration Gala on Wednesday (October 29).


On his beauty inspiration Gregory said, “We decided on a high-shine wave set to complement Kat’s gown tonight.”

Here’s how to get the look.

On damp hair, he applied R+Co Chiffon Styling Mousse through the roots and lengths of the hair. He then blew it out with a ceramic round brush and pin curled each section, securing with clips. He then curled each section with a 1 inch curling iron and again pin curled to cool.

After hair was cooled, starting at the nape, he softly brushed out each section with a Mason Pearson Popular Brush. Once brushed all the way through, he sprayed Serge Normant Dry Oil through the lengths and brushed again until his reached his desired shape.

Finally, he pinned the waves where he wanted them and set the style with R+Co Outer Space Flexible Hairspray.

Sharing his beauty inspiration, Beau said “Kat really is a natural beauty, so I wanted to accentuate that. The inspiration for this look came from the beautiful colours in the skin from classical paintings. I wanted to heighten the beautiful skin colours I see naturally in Kat’s face and take them to a surreal level.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Her skin was kept matte using Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation on a flat brush. He used Cinema Secrets Concealer under the eyes and on any redness, and powdered the skin with La Mer Loose Powder.

Bobbi Brown Blush in Pretty Coral gave a soft natural flush to the cheek and sculpted the cheekbone and jawline using Surratt Blush in Grisaille to contour.

Her eyelids are naturally a really pretty peachy-brown, so he mixed two shades of blush from NARS (Silvana and Gina) and washed them (using a soft domed shadow brush) over her eyelids, blending them to slightly above the crease of her eyes to give a heightened sense of colour.

On her lips he applied Tom Ford Lipstick in Casablanca, blotted it, and then dusted on a tiny bit of loose powder to make it matte.

Naomi Watts Is The Newest L’Oreal Ambassador

Naomi Watts - New L'Oreal Ambassador - In ParisNaomi Watts attended a L’Oreal presentation dinner on Wednesday (October 22) in Paris, France where she was unveiled as a new L’Oreal Ambassador.

She joins a growing list of celebrities who are all ‘worth it’, following in the footsteps of fellow actresses Blake Lively, Eva Longoria, Julianne Moore and Zoe Saldana, as well as models Natasha Poly, Lara Stone and the very recently announced Karlie Kloss.

I’m excited to see the actress gracing our screens, delivering that famous line in the near future.

Then there’s Cannes. The actress is often seen during Cannes wearing Marchesa with Bulgari jewels, so I’m guessing not much will change there.

Get The Look: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Shimmering Eyes

unnamedCelebrity makeup artist Lisa Storey worked with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for the FORWARD by Elyse Walker & Anthony Vaccarello Dinner on Wednesday (October 22).

Lisa explains, “Rosie wanted a simple look for a casual event so I focused on a shimmering eye.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Lisa began by dusting the lighter shade of the Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in Seductive Rose over the entire eyelid, followed by the darker shade on the edge of the eye, top and bottom.

She used a small, soft brush to give a tinge of colour from the darker shade and applied the light-pink shade more intensely to the inner corner of the eye. Then she framed the eye behind the lash line with Tom Ford Eye Defining Pen, extending the line out beyond the lash line to give the eye a little lift. She then applied Dior Blackout Mascara to the top and bottom lashes.

On the cheeks she used Tom Ford Cheek Color in Wicked to give a vibrant pinky glow.

On the lips she used L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Glossy Balm in My Baby Doll.

Lisa finished with a light dusting of Tom Ford Illuminating Powder.

Get The Look: January Jones’ Effortless, Touchable Hair

Opening Of Restoration Hardware West Hollywood The Gallery On Melrose AvenueCelebrity hairstylist Clariss Rubenstein worked with January Jones for the opening of Restoration Hardware West Hollywood The Gallery on Wednesday (October 22).

Sharing her inspiration, Clariss said, “I wanted January’s hair to look effortless and touchable. Her hair is super healthy and shiny right now and I wanted to enhance that.”

Here’s how to get the look.

After blow-drying January’s hair with just a few sprays of Bumble & Bumble Thickening Spray, Clariss used a one-inch-barrel curling iron and wrapped the hair in different directions so that it had movement and didn’t look too uniform.

To finish the look she used Unite Texturiza Spray, which I love (it’s a dry shampoo, a texturizer, and light hairspray all in one), at the roots only. She also added a few sprays of Oribe Shine Light Reflecting Spray to the ends.
