Get The Look: Lucy Hale’s Teen Choice Awards Bold Green Beauty

Lucy Hale’s ultra-cool green beauty look was certainly the most memorable beauty moment at this year’s Teen Choice Awards.

Makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan drew from the colorful tones of Lucy’s Mary Katrantzou dress for the evening and created a summery green eye look that dazzled on the red carpet. Here’s how she created this bold look:

SKIN: For this look, Kelsey didn’t want to mask Lucy’s flawless skin and chose lightweight products to correct and enhance Lucy’s already radiant complexion. She first corrected any redness on Lucy’s skin with Clé de PeauBeauté Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 25 in shades Almond and Beige and then applied La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation SPF 25 to the skin.

CHEEKS: Once a flawless canvas was achieved, Kelsey moved on to defining Lucy’s cheeks and adding a dash of color. For a soft contour, Kelsey used AVON True Color Transforming Contour Stick to the cheeks and blended for a polished look. For a hint of color, La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Blush in Rose Glow was seamlessly diffused onto the cheeks.

EYES: To create the mesmerizing green eye look, Kelsey opted for carefully applied layers of color. She began by applying Chanel Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow in shade 824 Verderame onto the lids, blended into the crease and under the lower lash line. The creamy texture and lasting quality of this product served as an ideal base for the next powdered shadows to properly adhere and appear more vibrant. Kelsey then applied the shimmery emerald shade from the Kat Von D 10th Anniversary Palette atop the cream eyeshadow.Finally, for a metallic, multifaceted finish, Kryolan Pure Pigments in Pure Envy was applied to center of the lids and the inner corners which made Lucy’s bright eyes pop. Kelsey finished off the glamorous eye look with a few coats of Avon True Color Love at 1st Lash Mascara which added lots of drama to Lucy’s naturally voluminous lashes.

LIPS: Kelsey wanted to keep the lips simple and didn’t want them to compete with the bold eye look. Interestingly, she opted out of a traditional nude and decided on sheer, glass-like textured lips.Kelsey coated Lucy’s full pout with Avon True Color Lips Glow Lip Gloss in Clear for a delicate lacquered finish.

Get The Look: Rita Ora’s Poppy Bronzed Met Gala Beauty Look

Rita Ora dazzled in a dramatic adorned Prada noir gown at this Monday’s Met Gala, though it was the poppy embellished design of the gown which served asthe inspiration for her beauty look.

Makeup artist Kathy Jeung wanted the makeup to complement her ensemble and look just as bright with bold tones like fuchsia and bronze with holographic finishes.

The final makeup look was structured and brightly colored with a soft romantic appearance. Using Pat McGrath Labs versatile collection, here’s how she created this look:

SKIN: Prior to makeup, Kathy really wanted to treat Rita’s skin, providing it with amply moisture and ensure a radiant and youthful base. She used an array of Valmont skincare products to prep Rita’s skin. To exfoliate the skin, Kathy used the Valmont Clarifying pack, she then masked the skin with the Valmont Energy Prime Renewing Pack, to de-stress the skin and inject some radiance while ridding any signs of fatigue. She moisturized the delicate under eye and lip area with Valmont Prime Contour. For an extra boost to the skin, Kathy also used the ultimate skincare product, Biologique Lotion P50 1970.

CONTOUR/HIGHLIGHT: Once the skin was prepped, primed and set, Kathy contoured and highlighted her flawless complexion. To define her cheeks, Kathy blended ‘Gold Rush & Gilt Trip’ (bronze shades) from the Pat McGrath Labs MTHRSHP Sublime Bronze Ambition Palette onto the hollows of Rita’s cheeks. For stunning warmth and a bronze finish, Kathy used the same shades and dusted it along the temples, along the hairline and under the chin. Once the skin was bronzed, Kathy added lustrous radiance along Rita’s cheekbones using the MOTHERSHIP III: Subversive Eye Palette. To complement the stunning shades on Rita’s dress, she used the ‘VR Pink’ shade to the tops of Rita’s cheekbones, softly blending and diffusing outwards.

EYES: For that glamorous almost opalescent bronze smoky eye, Kathy used the Pat McGrath Labs MTHRSHP Sublime Bronze Ambition Palette. Blending all the bronze shades from the palette helped her created a subtle and elegant colored eye look. For an eye-opening touch, she applied ‘SkinshowFever’ from the MOTHERSHIP III: Subversive Eye Palette in the inner corner or her eyes (tear ducts). To further enhance the eye makeup and create a more uniform look, Kathy used her finger and applied ‘VR Pink’, the same product used to highlight the upper cheekbones, onto the center of her eyelids. Finally, to define the romantic bronzed eye makeup, Kathy lined Rita’s eyes with Pat McGrath Permagel Ultra Glide Eye Pencil in Blitz Brown.

LIPS: To create that poppy fuchsia lip, Kathy opted to use a lasting matte product. She evenly applied Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lip Color in Heartbeatto Rita’s full lips.

Get The Look: Lily Collins’ Dramatic Sparkle-Accented Met Gala Beauty Look

One of evening’s most creative and striking beauty looks, Lily Collins’ ultra-sparkly and dramatic makeup made quite the style statement at this year’s Met Gala. Beautifully interpreting the Gala’s theme – “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” — in an innovative fashion, makeup artist Fiona Stiles created an artistic makeup that was dark and intense while remaining incredibly chic.

Serving as a stunning contrast to the angelic renaissance beauty looks of the evening, here’s how Fiona created this dramatic look:

SKIN: Every great beauty look starts with a makeup-free and freshly cleansed face. To prep Lily’s skin, Fiona began by massaging Lancôme Genefique Youth Activating Concentrate onto her face. Once the skin was primed and hydrated, she continued by blending Lancôme Le TeintIdole Ultra 24H Longwear Foundation (in 110 Ivoire C) onto her skin for a flawless complexion. She them worked to blurany imperfections and adding additional brightness with Lancôme Effacernes(in 110 Ivoire) concealer. She locked in the look with a dusting of Lancôme Absolue Powder (Ecru Light).

CHEEKS: To sculpt Lily’s cheeks and face, Fiona used Lancôme Le Duo Contouring and Highlighting Stick (in Ivoire) and blended it out for an effortless finish. For radiance and dimension, Lily’s face was highlighted with Lancôme Dual Finish Highlighter (in Shimmering Buff).

EYES: Once the skin was perfected, Fiona moved onto the eyes which was the focal point of the beauty look. To create that softly diffused smoky eye look, she used two essential eyeshadow shades. Lancôme Color Design eyeshadows (in Volcano Shimmer and Smokey Brown) were blended onto the lids and crease. Opting out of eyeliner, Fiona framed the look by coating Lily’s lush lashes with Lancôme Hypnose Drama (in Excessive Black) mascara. For that dazzling sparkle design, she strategically placed rounded crystals along the center of Lily’s upper and lower lash lines.

BROWS: Already full and beautifully shaped, Fiona groomed Lily’s brows with Lancôme Sourcils Styler (in Transparent).
.
LIPS: For a stained-glass look,Fiona saturated Lily’s pout with Lancôme Le Metallique Metallic Lip Lacquer(in Purple Onyx).

BODY: Much like her beauty look, Fiona wanted Lily’s skin to glisten, she achieved that sheen with a blend of Lancôme TeintIdole Ultra Custom Highlighter Drops in Champagne Glow and Lancôme Dual Finish Highlighter in Shimmer Buff.

To seal in the flawless base and add longevity to the look, Allan dusted her skin with Kat Von D Lock It Setting Powder.

Using the Kat Von D Shade + Light Face Contour Palette, Allan sculpted Maren’s with the Shade Contour Powder in Sombre (taupe). For that lustrous metallic sheen, he blended Gammaray, an opalescent peach shade with pink and gold crystals, shade from the Kat Von D Metal Crush Extreme Highlighter Palette on the tops of the cheeks bones and high points of the face.

These bold shades each feature bold and lasting pigments with a metallic finish which made the eye look pop and remain immaculate throughout Maren’s outstanding performance. Before creating the daring smoky eye look, Allan primed her eyes with Kat Von D Lock It Concealer. He used Thrasher, the molten gold shade with Synergy, a deep bronze as the base shade. To create the colorful purple smoke of the eye look, he blended burgundy (Raw Power) and purple (Danzig) to the outer corners of the eyes. To frame Maren’s eye look, he lined her eyes with Kat Von D Tattoo in Trooper, an intensely pigmented satin black color.

BROWS: Once the eyes were complete, Allan groomed Maren’s brows with Kat Von D Brow Struck Dimension Powder and Signature Brow Precision Pencil (both in shade Walnut), which defined the overall shape and filled in any sparse areas.
