Get The Look: Kirsten Dunst’s ‘The Two Faces of January’ New York Premiere Makeup

KIRSTEN DUNSTCelebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff worked with Kirsten Dunst for the premiere of ‘The Two Faces of January’ this week.

Pati shares her beauty inspiration: “For Kirsten’s premiere, I worked off of the very inspiring Chanel Couture dress she wore. It was made of a neoprene type of fabric which gave it structure and had the most beautiful bead work, which is where my palette was drawn from.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Keeping her skin fresh, Pati prepped with Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist and L’Oreal Miracle Blur in the T-zone. After a light finish of foundation, she used Cle de Peau Concealer in Beige to even out the skin.

The brows were given strong definition using Maybelline Define a Brow in Dark Blonde.

For the eyes, she used a matte cream colour shadow on the lid and a matte putty colour shadow in the crease (both by Dior) to even out the lid and give definition. She then applied a matte bone colour on the lid and a matte taupe in the crease (both by Pati Dubroff Perfect Palette).

Next she used a liquid eyeliner from the centre lash line, extending beyond the outer corner with a flick. On top of the liner, she drew another line from the inner corner of the lash line, then extending on top of the black liner (a double liner effect).

This liner was a silver metallic – Chanel Long Lasting Eyeliner in Silver Light. Pati focused the mascara to the outer lashes to keep the inner eye light and bright.

Pati then applied a swirl of Flower Cream Blush in Petunia on the apples of the cheeks.

Finally, the lips got Chanel Rouge Allure in 217 Radieuse, a pale opal pink to mimic the opal beads on the dress.

Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo Couture – Harper’s Bazaar China Charity Gala

Fan Bingbing In Ralph & Russo Couture - Harper's Bazaar China Charity Gala

Fan Bingbing took to the red carpet this evening (September 19) for the Harper’s Bazaar China Charity Gala in China.

Channelling her inner Hollywood goddess, she stunned wearing a Ralph & Russo Spring 2014 Couture off-white wool crepe dress with pearl and crystal diamond-patterned embellishment.

The dress is gorgeous, the hair and makeup breathtaking, but the accessories let her down.

I could perhaps forgive the Chopard necklace on such a glamorous night, but the black and cream Louis Vuitton bag and pink glitter shoes? No.

The bag could’ve got a pass had it been smaller, because it does complement the pattern on her dress (and as the face of the Fall 2014 campaign I guess it was somewhat mandatory), but the shoes shall get no such pass.

Emporio Armani Spring 2015 Front Row

Emporio Armani Spring 2015 Front Row

Ashley Madekwe and Bella Thorne were perched in the front row of the Emporio Armani Spring 2015 show during Milan Fashion Week yesterday afternoon (September 18).

Ashley Madekwe: Embodying the elegance of the brand to a tee, the actress wore a white Emporio Armani sleeveless blazer with slim-fit trousers. Styled in a timeless, chic manner with black and white accessories, I can’t help but be captivated by the enigmatic and androgynous cool appeal of this look.

Bella Thorne: The actress also went the black and white route while opting for separates with an all-round looser fit. This I found surprising, and refreshing, considering that her style often consists of tight-fitted mini dresses. However, the only thing I would change about this look is the shoes. There is something quite clownish about them.

L’Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds Campaign

L'Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds campaign

Blake Lively, Zoe Saldana, Jane Fonda, Laetitia Casta, Julianne Moore, Liya Kebede, Freida Pinto, Eva Longoria, Natasha Poly and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan star in the latest L’Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds campaign, which was shot by Norman Jean Roy.

Each of the ambassadors are dressed in white (Zoe and Liya in Elie Saab Spring 2014) with a bold red lip, but the twist is they are not all wearing the same shade.

The red lip shades were inspired by their skin tones and even their hair colour to create the perfect match.

L’Oreal is hoping to diminish the fear of choosing such a bold lip colour with the new collection.

L’Oreal make-up artist Lynsey Alexander said, “The correct red should leave you feeling empowered, confident, and sexy all at once whilst ultimately being something you choose to wear and not something that wears you. There is most definitely a perfect red for everyone and if you apply one tone and feel conscious and aware of it then it’s not the one for you.”

All of our favourite L’Oreal girls appear in the ad, with the exception of new girl Kirsten Dunst, Cheryl Cole and Sonam Kapoor.

A few of the shades are below. I’m having a strong pull towards Laetitia’s deep rouge.

Rose Byrne In Jenny Packham – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Rose Byrne In Jenny Packham - The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Rose Byrne paid a visit to the Rockefeller Center in New York City yesterday evening (September 18) to make a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ to talk about her Broadway debut in ‘You Can’t Take It With You’.

Glowing in an autumnal crimson-hued silk satin draped dress with delicate layered sleeves from Jenny Packham’s Fall 2014 collection, the actress is the embodiment of effeminate elegance.

I love the light and airy feel of the look contrasted with grey Jimmy Choo toecap pumps and a few silver rings to round out her look.

Working a sleek bob hairstyle, her makeup was kept light and fresh.
