Get The Look: America Ferrera’s National Board of Review Gala Wavy Tresses & Dewy Glow

2014 National Board Of Review Gala - ArrivalsCelebrity hairstylist Leonardo Manetti and celebrity makeup artist Linda Hay worked with America Ferrera for the 2014 National Board of Review Gala on Tuesday (January 6).


First up, Leonardo Manetti explains his hair inspiration: “We decided on classic curled waves for America at the National Board of Review Gala.”

Here’s how to get the look.

After applying a combination of Oribe Foundation Mist and Oribe Maximista Thickening Spray, he blew out America’s hair. Once dry, he separated the hair into sections (two in front, two on the sides and two in the back) and curled the hair using a one-inch curling iron.

To set, he used a bit of Oribe Impermeable Spray. Then he brushed out the curls into his desired shape and finished with Oribe Superfine Hairspray.

“Inspired by America’s vintage Valentino dress, we went with a modern classic, the smokey eye and beige lip. It was a fresh complement to the sophisticated little black dress,” Linda said of her beauty inspiration.

Here’s how to get the look.

Linda kept the skin very sheer using Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight to add radiance. She also used Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate for a bit of contour. She then added a splash of blush on the apples of the cheeks using Armani Blush #506.

Next she used Charlotte Tilbury Black Eye Pencil to line the top lid and inside the water line on the bottom lid, blending the pencil line using the darkest shade from the YSL Palette #4. She then used the mid-tone shades of the palette to blend up and away. Linda also used the highlighter shade just under the brow and inside corner of the eye. Under the eye she applied a soft line of the medium shade, followed by heavy layers of L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara.

Linda finished with a nude lip to contrast the eye, using NARS Chubby Lip Pencil in Buenos Aires.

Get The Look Karlie Kloss' The PEOPLE Magazine Awards Effortless Updo

Celebrity hairstylist Giannandrea worked with Karlie Kloss for the PEOPLE Magazine Awards on Thursday (December 18).

“I decided to create a modern, effortless updo for Karlie at the PEOPLE Magazine Awards,” said Giannandrea

Here’s how to get the look.

Beginning with wet hair, Giannandrea applied Macadamia Professional Foaming Volumizer to the whole head and blow dried with a large round brush to create volume on top.

Next he used a one-inch curling iron and curled the hair in soft waves. He applied a quarter-sized amount of Macadamia Professional Whipped Detailing Cream and with his hands ran it through the head backwards to create depth and separation.

Using small pins, he twisted the hair and set it into place, pinning it back. He braided the back into a low bun and also twisted it into the rest of the hair, creating a romantic shape. He allowed the flyaways to remain, creating a soft and ethereal look.

He finished with Macadamia Professional Control Working Spray.

unnamedCelebrity makeup artist Tamah worked with Elisabeth Moss for the PEOPLE Magazine Awards on Thursday (December 18).

“Our inspiration was a modern-day Marilyn Monroe. Who better, ever?!” said Tamah.

Here’s how to get the look.

On Elisabeth’s eyes Tamah used Benefit Cream Color in Flatter Me. She then applied it with a fluffy brush for a really soft look. Over that she layered some short and medium knot-free Ardell Individual Lashes. At her lash line she blended Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Black and layered MAC Costa Riche Eyeliner over that with a pencil brush for a super-soft smudgy look. She then layered a bit of Costa Riche under her bottom lashes as well for definition.

Tamah filled in Elisabeth’s natural brow shape with Anastasia Brow Wiz in Caramel.

On the skin she used Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation in 002 and spot concealed with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in 02 and 03.

On the cheeks she used MAC Cream Color in Something Special and topped that off with Topshop Bronzer in Sandcastle.

Tamah finished her look with a lick of NYX Butter Lipstick in Big Cherry and a light dusting of Laura Mercier Translucent Powder.

Get The Look: Karolina Kurkova’s Valentino Sala Bianca 945 Braided Bun

Celebrity hairstylist Jennifer Yepez worked with Karolina Kurkova for the Valentino Sala Bianca 945 Event on Wednesday (December 10) in New York City.

Explaining her beauty inspiration, Jennifer said, “Karolina’s Valentino dress was beautiful and romantic so we wanted the hair to be modern and strong. We felt a centre part with sleek shine would work best. We also wanted something special in the back so I created a beautiful braided bun.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Jennifer began by spraying PHYTO Phytovolume Actif Volumizer Spray section by section and blew the hair dry using a Mason Pearson brush. She made sure to spray from roots to ends in order to get a better grip on the ponytail and to make the hair thicker for the braid.

Once the hair was dry, she created the centre part. She used the Mason Pearson to smooth the hair and make the ponytail, securing it with an elastic hook. Once secured, she sprayed Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray throughout the ponytail to give it volume and a bit of texture.

Next she braided the ponytail and secured it with a small elastic band. She carefully shaped the braid to Karolina’s head and used small hair pins (matching her hair colour) to pin it in place. She sprayed a bit of Kerastase Laque Couture Hairspray to tame flyaways. She also used a tail comb on the back of the braid to tuck in any loose ends and a small teasing brush (a toothbrush works well, too) to smooth the front of the hair.

The look was finished with Kerastase Touche Finale for extra shine, and she was carpet-ready.
