“Amber brought some of her own ideas to the mix,” said Matthew. “She liked the idea of focusing on sultry chocolate eyes, creamy skin and soft nude lips. I was just bringing out the remarkable geometry and beauty of her face.”

How To
Moisturize skin with Cle de Peau Gentle Nourishing Emulsion. Prime with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, conceal with Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer in Warm, and follow with Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup in Light Beige.

Define the brows with Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette. Apply the shell shade from the Hourglass Vol. 6 Eye Palette as a base color all over the lids. Follow with the bronze shimmer shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy applied to the crease and under the eyes. Deepen the bronze with the brown shade from Vol. 6 Eye Palette applied to the outer corner, top and bottom of the lids. Line the eyes with a deep plum pencil like MAC Eye Kohl Prunella. “I also smudged the line with the black shadow from the palette,” says Matthew. Apply a high-shine pearl shadow to the inner corner of the eye. Apply a coat of Hourglass Film Noir Mascara, allow to dry and curl lashes. Amplify with individual lashes like Ardell Duralash Flare in Medium Black.

Apply the sheer rose shade from Hourglass Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset to the cheeks, and highlight with the sheer champagne shade from Hourglass Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Bronze Light. Retrace your steps with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Ethereal Light, an opalescent sheer powder which mimics a moonlit glow.

Line lips with Hourglass Trace Lip Liner in Bare and follow with Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in Whisper, a golden pinky beige shimmer.

Supermodel Miranda Kerr dazzled at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards After Party last night with smoldering eyes and red lips. To get her showstopping look, follow these easy steps from Celebrity Makeup Artist Lisa Storey.

How to get Miranda Kerr's makeup at 2013 Golden Globe Awards After Party
Prep skin with VS PRO Airbrush FX Bronzing Primer for a natural, all-over glow. Lightly dust VS PRO Flawless FX Translucent Finishing Powder over entire face for a flawless finish. For touchups, dab VS PRO Anti-Shine FX Oil-Free Mattifier on high-shine areas, like the center of the forehead, nose and chin.

Before applying eye shadow, prep lids with VS PRO Lasting FX Eye Shadow Primer to create a smooth and long-lasting base. Hide dark shadows under eyes with VS PRO Camouflage FX Universal Concealer Palette. Apply VS PRO Light FX HD Eye Brightening Pen around the entire eye area and blend up into cheekbones to lighten and brighten dark shadows and conceal fine lines. Using VS Makeup Eye Shadow Quad in Eye Contact, apply the lid color all over lids, blending up into the crease and out towards the outer corner of the eye. Use the same color under the bottom lashes. Apply the highlight color under the brow bone and add a touch to the inner corners to open the eyes. Define upper and lower lashlines with VS Precision Liquid Liner in Black, exaggerating the outer edges for an eye-opening effect. Using VS Brow Pencil and Brush Duo in Brunette, fill in brows for extra definition. Finish with two coats of VS Makeup Volume Lift Mascara in Black.

Apply VS Makeup Luminous Mineral Blush Duo in Meet Up to apples of cheeks for a sexy flush.

Prep lips with VS PRO Pout FX Lip Primer and Definer. Complete the red carpet look with a swipe of VS Makeup Color Drama Lipstick in Intensity.

Eyeliner Tips from Stila’s Sarah Luero

November 7th, 2012

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Tonight I sat down with Sarah Luero, celebrity makeup artist and Global Director of Creative Artistry & Education for Stila Cosmetics, for an exclusive preview of the gorgeous Holiday 2012 Collection. Sarah also showed us a few pointers on how to rock my favorite Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liners, including how to layer them.

* Put on mascara before you apply eyeliner. This will help maximize your eye area and allow you to really see where to apply the liner.

* To create what Sarah calls a “double-decker eyeliner”, start with a black or brown color like Stargazer and Oscar Fish from the new Stila Seeing Stars Smudge Stick Set (pictured below). Line your eyes like you normally would from the inner corner to the outer corner. Next, apply a different, brighter color (try Moray or Tetra from the same set) on top to really make it pop.

* Be creative. Use your Smudge Sticks as eyeshadows or even highlighters by applying TONS on the back of your hand then dabbing the product onto specific areas. They key is to work quickly, as the liners do dry fast and once they set, they will not budge!

* Sarah’s favorite look for the Holidays? Lots of eyeliner paired with a flawless complexion, a bit of cream blush and a bold matte berry lip.

Are you a fan of Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liners? How do you use them?

Stila Seeing Stars Smudge Stick Set is now available at and Sephora for $32 or you can take advantage of the 20% Off Friends and Family Sale and get it for less!

Mally Roncal’s Makeup Tips For Prom and Glowy Skin

April 12th, 2012

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

From celebrities like Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez to Mariah Carey and Celine Dion, makeup artist Mally Roncal has painted the faces of many and even appeared on Oprah. Here, she shares with us a few tips on how to look fabulous for prom and create the radiant, well-rested look that she is known for:

Mallu Roncal makeup tips
Tip #1: Brighten your eyes by using a white shimmery powder in the corners of each eye. Skip eyeliner and use an eyelash curler with tons of black mascara.

Tip #2: Want a romantic look?! Try rosy, dewy cheeks and peachy lipgloss.

Tip #3: Be bold. Choose a fiery red lip and pair it with sharp black eyeliner…So FIERCE!

Tip #4: You don’t need to use just black and grey shades to create a smokey eye. Instead, try a gorgeous plum or green color …with a bit of sparkle.

Tip #5: To instantly look like you have had 8-hours of sleep , first start with a good moisturizer to smooth over any dry or flaky spots. Next, apply a primer like Mally Beauty Perfect Prep Poreless Primer to fill in your pores and fine lines, creating an invisible barrier between your skin and your makeup. Apply a creamy concealer underneath your eyes, and then dab on any blemishes. Even out your complexion with foundation (try Mally Beauty Ultimate Performance Foundation) and a powder brush to get that diffused, airbrushed look. Using a highlighter, apply to the brow bone, cheek bones, temples and down the center of your nose; swirl a universally flattering pinky-peach blush onto the apples of the cheeks. Use a volumizing mascara like Mally Beauty Volumizing Mascara and with the wand, apply inwards for a starburst effect that instantly opens up eyes. Finish by adding Mally Beauty Lightwand Eye Brightener. Take the pencil end and draw a sideways “v” in the inner corner of your eyes. If you want to take it to the next level, take the spring-loaded powder dabber on the other end, and apply it on top of the pencil!

When you were little, did you have someone you watched apply makeup?

November 18th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

When you were little, did you have someone you watched apply makeup? Share your memories!

I can’t remember watching any one apply makeup until the ninth or tenth grade, which was when my best friend at the time was wearing her makeup, so I’d sit and watch her sometimes. My mom never wore makeup (and rarely has)!

Thanks to Jasmine for today’s question! Got a question idea? Submit yours here.
