July 12th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

At Chanel Fall 2014 Couture Show, models rocked spiky punk hairdos and minimal makeup that consisted of a winged eyeliner with a pop of gold and silver and nude lips. “It’s like modern sculpture, in modern materials, but with baroque elements,” Karl Lagerfeld said backstage. “This is the story of Le Corbusier going to Versailles.”

Romantic Makeup & Voluminous Ponytail at Jenny Packham Bridal Spring 2015

April 25th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

With bridal season in full swing, now is the time to drool over some very pretty dresses and catch up on the latest bridal hair and makeup. At Jenny Packham Bridal Spring 2015 Collection, the look was inspired by photographs of 1930s British society photographer, Madame Yevonde. The photographs’ soft tonal colors and hazy, neoclassical ambiance directly influenced the design and palette of the collection and translating into a romantic hair and makeup look that consisted of earthy colors and a voluminous ponytail.

Makeup
To create a flawless complexion, lead makeup artist Talia Shobrook first prepped skin with Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Hydrating. Next, she used Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide to create a healthy, even tone. Then, she covered any imperfections using Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage. To sculpt the cheeks, she applied Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Cashmere followed by a thin layer of Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Barely Pink. Next, she applied Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder underneath the eyes and dusted Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder in Universal on the rest of the face to set the makeup and make the skin appear “demi-matte”. To highlight and give “freshness to the skin”, Shobrook applied Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Hydrating to the cheeks and the tip of the nose using the Laura Mercier Fan Powder Brush.

On the eyes, Shobrook first primed the eye area with Laura Mercier Eye Basics. Immediately before application, she wet Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Café au Lait before finely applying it starting from the inner corner, following the lashline and extending it out to the outer corner with a sharp tick. Next, she lightly applied Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Sesame onto the eyelids before sculpting the eye with Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Cashmere in the crease using Laura Mercier Pony Tail Brush. Shobrook then highlighted under the brow bone with Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Buttercream and coated lashes with Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Suprême Lash Building Mascara. She then went over the mascara with a clean mascara wand to separate the lashes. To tie the look together and flawlessly frame the face, she lightly defined the eyebrows using Laura Mercier Eye Brow Pencil.

For a full lip, Shobrook mixed Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Sienna and Cocoa and applied the combination to the lips with Laura Mercier Flat Eye Liner Brush, starting in the middle and fading out, which allowed a transparency of color. This application technique allowed the color to appear more concentrated in the center of the lips.

Hair
Hairstylist Jeanie Syfu working for Tresemme gave models a low ponytail with lots of volume around the crown. Here’s how:

1. Apply Tresemme 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse liberally to all sections of the hair, then rough-dry.

2. Brush out the hair with a Mason Pearson brush to work the product in and apply clip-in hair extensions from the nape of the neck to just above the ear, as needed.

3. Tease hair in small sections and lightly spray with Tresemme 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray.

4. With your fingers, gather hair at the nape of the neck and secure with an elastic.

5. Take a small strand of hair from underneath the ponytail and wrap around the base to cover the elastic and pin into place.

6. Loosen the ponytail just behind the ears at the nape to create a round shape. Gently pull a few wisps of hair from the ponytail to frame the face and fluff the hair lightly with fingers.

7. Finish with Tresemme 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray for long-lasting volume.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Makeup at 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party
First, Blunder prepped the skin with Laura Mercier Oil-Free Primer. Then, using her fingers, she applied Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide (launching Fall 2014) all over her face and Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage to cover any imperfections. Next, Blunder blended Laura Mercier Secret Concealer #2 under Huntington-Whiteley’s eyes with Laura Mercier Finishing Eye Brush. She then set everything with Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder in Translucent.

To create the gorgeous glow you see on Rosie, Blunder applied Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder #3 with Laura Mercier Bronzer Brush before adding a touch of Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Golden Mosaic.

On Rosie’s eyes, Blunder started with Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Buff all over the eyelid, followed by a veil of Sateen Eye Colour in Baroque on top and Matte Eye Colour in Café au Lait for definition. She then lined her Rosie’s eyes using Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil in Stormy Grey in an outward motion to create a cat eye and softened the line with Laura Mercier Smudge Brush. To intensify the smoky-eye effect, Blunder applied Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Cocoa with Laura Mercier Pony Tail Brush and highlighted the inner corners with Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Ballet Pink. Next, Blunder added Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Café au Lait along the lower lashline, curled the lashes and
applied generous coats of Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara. Finally, she groomed Rosie’s brows using Laura Mercier Brow Grooming Brush and added extra definition with Laura Mercier Eye Brow Pencil in Ash Blonde.

Finishing the look, Blunder lined Rosie’s lips with Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Baby Lips and topped Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Royal Orchid for a “bold pout”.

Bridal Beauty at Marchesa Bridal Spring 2013 Runway

April 25th, 2012

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

With bridal season coming up, take a cue from Talia Shobrook, lead makeup artist for the Marchesa Bridal Spring 2013 runway show, on how to create a look that is whimsical, effervescent and totally wearable.

Face
“Flawless skin with a fresh and dewy finish was the foundation of the look”, said Shobrook. First, she mixed Laura Mercier Mega-Moisturizer Crème SPF 15 with Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance to add a subtle glow to the skin. She then covered under eye circles with Laura Mercier Secret Concealer and covered any spots or redness with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage. Next, she applied Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation to the face. Lastly, she used Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder in the T-zone, for control shine, leaving the rest of the skin dewy and fresh.

Eyes
To highlight the eye and add to the allure that a bride’s sparkling eyes have on her wedding day, Talia mixed Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colours Stellar and Primrose and applied them on the lid from lashline to the crease. Next, she softly contoured the crease with Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Fresco. Using Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Ballet Pink, she dipped Laura Mercier Fine Point Eye Liner Brush into water and swirled around the Eye Colour to pick up the product, then drew a line across the lashline, with a slight flick at the outer corner. The eyeliner should be thin and bright. On the lower lashline, she used Laura Mercier Flat Eye Liner Brush to apply Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Truffle just at the lashline and blended slightly to soften. Lastly, she finished with a layer of Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara and another layer of Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Lash Building Mascara to the lashes in the center of the eye.

Lips and Cheeks
“By using the same product on the eyes and lips, we allow the fresh-faced bride to only have to carry one product for touch-ups. The creamy formula adds a lovely natural flush to the face,” Shobrook concluded.

On the cheeks, Talia applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Mango (launching September 2012) to the apples of the cheeks and blended to give a natural flush in the face. The result is a creamy smooth natural cheek color. The look was finished with the same color blended onto the lips as well.
