Get The Look: Emmy Awards Red Carpet Ready Skin

Emmys Skin

Hair and makeup artists aren’t the only experts who make sure celebrities are ready for the cameras during award shows. Their dermatologists also play a big role in prepping for red carpet appearances.

Harold A. Lancer, MD FAAD is a favorite amongst celebs and it’s clear to see why. His procedures and products have been used on Hollywood’s most famous faces and bodies. At this year’s Emmy Awards two of the many celebs he worked with were Sofia Vergara, and Julianna Margulies. With his help the ladies were picture perfect for the evening.

Sofia Vergara prepped her skin for the red carpet with the Venus Concept Legacy treatment. It’s a non-surgical body contouring, cellulite reduction, and skin tightening remedy. There are three different types of Venus Treatments the Swan, Freeze, Legacy. Each treatment works with, “Multi-polar radio frequencies which cause a thermal reaction that stimulates the body’s natural healing response.” The fast result make it a celebrity fave before important events.

The secret to Julianna Margulies’ skin starts with Dr. Lancer’s three-step method: polish, cleanse, and nourish. The Method focuses on the dermis and allows the skin to repair itself. Most skincare routines recommend that you exfoliate the skin last, but Dr. Lancer’s process is reversed, as he believes that products will work more effectively if the skin is first exfoliated.

Sounds like the beginning of a flawless selfie.

Get The Look: The Olsen’s Radiant CFDA Fashion Awards Beauty Look

2014 CFDA Fashion Awards - Arrivals

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen receiving the Accessories Designer of the Year for their brand The Row during the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 2). While the accolade was enough to keep the twosome glowing, it was celebrity makeup artist, Ana Marie Rizzieri’s expert beauty work that truly made the Olsen’s skin radiate.

Using an array of Elizabeth Arden skin and beauty products, Ana created a look that accentuated each sister’s natural beauty all while exuding the timeless and chic look they’re known for. The final results featured warm tones and fresh luminous skin.

Here’s how you can recreate this covetable Olsen beauty look yourself:

Skin: To ensure a flawless makeup application, properly treating the skin is essential. Mary-Kate and Ashley’s skin always looks picture perfect and this event was no exception. After cleansing, skin was prepped with Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum and Prevage Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum. To combat chapped and rough lips, Ana applied Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream to lips.

Face (complexion): For the perfect radiant base, Ana applied Elizabeth Arden Flawless Perfectly Nude Makeup in Alabaster to their skin. She followed by highlighting the under-eye area with Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Correcting and Highlighting Perfector in Shade #1. For added radiance, gently dab Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Cool Radiance Highlighter above the cheek bones, down the bridge of the nose, and middle of the forehead.

Cheeks: On Ashley, Ana chose Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Radiance Blush in Terra Rose for a delicate and pretty flushed cheek whereas on Mary-Kate, Ana opted for Blushing Pink. For a touch of warmth, both women had a final dusting of Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Summer Escape Bronzing Powder in Warm Glow.

Mary-Kate’s Eyes & Lips: Both Olsen’s wore radiant, warm toned shadows to highlight their eyes. Ana primed Mary-Kate’s lids with Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Correcting and Highlighting Perfector and followed with a generous dusting of Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Sandstone. She then applied Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Define and Highlighting Eyeliner Duo in Golden Sands from the top lash line to the crease as well as the bottom lash line. For a brightening and widening effect, Ana applied the pearl end of the liner to the inner corners of Mary-Kate’s eyes. For a more dramatic and smoky look, Ana blended Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Cinnamon into the crease. To finish the eyes, lashes were curled and coated in Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Lash Enhancing Mascara in Black. A coat was also applied to the bottom lashes which gave the look a bit of a 70’s edge. Although naturally full, Ana defined Mary-Kate’s Brows with Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Natural Eye Brow Liner in Brunette.

For that natural rosy pout, Ana swiped Elizabeth Arden Summer Escape Beautiful Color Gloss Stick in Pink Sky.

Ashley’s Eyes & Lips: Ana began by priming the lids with Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Correcting and Highlighting Perfector and layered Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Glisten as a base color. For contoured eyes, Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye shadow in Truffle was blended into the crease. Ana then applied Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Define Highlight Eyeliner Duo in Castaway along the upper lash line and smudged it out for a smoky effect. The shimmering blush-toned end of the Castaway liner was applied to the lower lash line and layered the chocolate shade on top. Ashley’s lashes were curled and coated in the same mascara. Ashley’s full brows were defined with the same brow liner used on Mary-Kate as well.

Due to the more dramatic eye look, Ana opted for a nude pout on Ashley. To create the lush lip, Ana lined and filled in the lips with Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Precision Glide Lip Liner in Honey. She topped the lip with Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in Golden Nude.

Get The Look: Rihanna’s Glowing Met Gala Makeup

"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.

Get the Look: Miranda Lambert’s ACM Awards Red Carpet Glow

Miranda Lambert ACM MakeupMiranda Lambert was truly the one to watch at the 49th Annual Academy Country Music Awards in Las Vegas.

Her Randi Rahm gown did sparkle, but it was her beautiful skin that really lit up the red carpet. You too can get the Miranda glow by following just a few steps.

The key to glowing skin is to start with healthy skin. Celebrity makeup artist, Karolina Kangas, took care of Miranda’s already gorgeous skin using Dermalogica’s Age Smart line.

The products are a favourite for red carpet skin as they fight off visible signs of aging before they even begin.

The Multivitamin Power Serum was smoothed over Miranda’s skin for a capsulated dose of Vitamins A, C, and E, which together help to firm and smooth the tissues.

Next, Dermalogica Skin Perfect Primer was liberally applied to boost luminosity and radiance.

Following the skin care, Kangas, applied Chanel Cosmetics to further illuminate the skin.

The Lift Lumière Foundation combined with the Concealer Correcteur Perfection create an even canvas and the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour’s versatility brightens and bronzes skin perfecting Miranda’s red carpet glow.

Get The Look: Camila Alves’ Classic Look at the Oscars 2014

86th Annual Academy Awards - ArrivalsCamila Alves looked gorgeous on the red carpet wearing Gabriela Cadena to the 2014 Oscars on Sunday.

Celeb makeup artist Patrick de Fontbrune started with Camila’s skin. First, he moisturized her face with vbeaute’s Undercover Agent Anti-Wrinkle Protecting Serum, then patted vbeaute’s Eye Never Anti-Aging Eye Cream around the eye area.

After prepping her base, he then used a tinted moisturizer to even out her complexion, but still giving her more of a sheer coverage. Using Votre Vu Belle Poudre in Golden Medium and Medium, he applied this to her forehead, nose, and eyelids as a primer.

He dusted her lids with Votre Vu’s Palette Play in Copper, specifically choosing a brown beige and gold colors together. He then lined her eyes with a soft, black eyeliner and finished her eye look with coats of mascara.

Her beautifully flushed cheeks were all thanks to Vu-On Rouge in Amourette (available this coming summer). He then contoured her face with bronzer.
