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).

HAIRSTYLIST GREGORY RUSSELL

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.

MAKEUP ARTIST BEAU NELSON

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.

Kat Dennings In Rubin Singer – 2014 amfAR LA Inspiration Gala

Kat Dennings In Rubin Singer - 2014 amfAR LA Inspiration Gala

Kat Dennings attended the amfAR LA Inspiration Gala honouring Tom Ford held at Milk Studios on Wednesday (October 29) in Hollywood, California.

Between Kristin Davis’s pretty-in-pink frock and Alessandra Ambrosio’s seductive gown, this Rubin Singer liquid nylon hand-draped sculptural strapless evening gown would’ve easily stood out.

This gown, worthy of a gala, was one of my favourites on the night. Figure-flattering, and sexy without being trashy, what I love about it most is that she took a step outside her comfort zone.

A CH Carolina Herrera Swarovski crystal Goldie clutch, glossy tresses and a matte rouge lip rounded out this exquisite look.

Kat Dennings In Stop Starring & Beth Behrs In Moschino – Backstage At The Geffen Annual Fundraiser

Geffen Playhouse's Annual "Backstage At The Geffen" Gala - Arrivals

Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs attended Geffen Playhouse’s Annual ‘Backstage At The Geffen’ Gala at Geffen Playhouse on Saturday (March 22) in Los Angeles, California alongside Anna Kendrick.

Kat Dennings: Looking divine in red, the tailored, streamlined silhouette of her fitted Stop Starring frock is punctuated by a ruffled detail cascading from her waist. A vampy dark-red pout, nude Dolce & Gabbana Mary Janes and a black clutch completed her look. I think I would’ve preferred some black Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps here.

Beth Behrs: Fitted in all the right places, this stretch-wool Moschino design is complemented by a sophisticated peplum panel and appealing knee-length skirt. Also working a red lip, Beth’s sexy chic look was styled with sky-high Saint Laurent patent pumps.

Glossy waves and smoky eyes completed her traffic-stopping look.

Kat Dennings & Beth Behrs’ 2014 People’s Choice Awards On Stage Looks

The 40th Annual People's Choice Awards - ShowAs co-hosts of the 2014 People’s Choice Awards, the red carpet was just the beginning of Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs’ night—and their wardrobe. For the show, hosted yesterday (January 8) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California, the ‘2 Broke Girls’ stars took stylish advantage of their on-stage time with three distinct sets of coordinated looks.

Look 1: Kat kicked off the show in an Oliver Tolentino Couture strapless, peplum-waist frock in the most engaging shade of saturated amethyst. The colour was beautiful against her alabaster skin tone, dark wavy locks and magenta lip. Beth truly glittered, too, in an adorable, crystallized Kate Spade New York ‘Estelle’ white paired with flashy silver Giuseppe Zanotti heels. Her blonde curls and pink lipstick made this leggy look both girly and glam.

Kat Dennings In David Meister – 2014 People’s Choice Awards

Kat Dennings In David Meister - 2014 People's Choice Awards

Kat Dennings arrived at the 40th annual People’s Choice Awards in rather dramatic fashion—as she should. After all, she’s co-hosting the show tonight (January 8), alongside Beth Behrs at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

Before embarking on what surely will be a slew of costume changes, the ‘Two Broke Girls’ star kicked off the evening in a black David Meister strapless ball gown, moodily sprinkled with the stencil of large red roses.

In keeping with the romantic, theatrical theme of the dress, she wore a dark berry lip stain and styled her dark brunette locks into loose curls, which were topped with a glittering headband.

She skipped the necklace, yet showed off a pile of statement bracelets and a ring.

The one accessory for which she probably had not planned were the gauze bandages that decorated her right hand—she suffered a bit of an accident with a knife over the weekend—although she strategically kept that hand rather hidden in the folds of her skirt.

Do you like her first look of the show?

Kat Dennings In Naeem Khan – ‘Thor: The Dark World’ LA Premiere

Kat Dennings In Naeem Khan - Thor LA Premiere

Continuing her promo-tour duties, Kat Dennings stepped out for the Los Angeles premiere of ‘Thor: The Dark World’ yesterday evening.

The actress wore a crimson-coloured Naeem Khan cocktail-length dress from the designer’s 2014 collection, which featured all-over damask-like floral embroidering. And while her gold confetti ‘Flavia’ clutch by Edie Parker certainly added a second eye-catching element to the outfit, it mostly made me think that this look is more than just a little ready for the holiday party scene.

To tie the look together, she wore nude pumps and a matching lip shade of red.
