February 13th, 2015

To balance out the Bianca Jagger inspired mix of femininity and masculinity in the Marissa Webb A/W 2015 collection, Maybelline artist Yadim teamed up with TRESemmé Stylist Jeanie Syfu to create a soft and fresh look on the models.

Yadim started out with Dream Wonder Fluid Touch Foundation for the base. He applied Face Studio Master Conceal where needed and around the brows to soften them. He used a taupe shade from THE NUDES Palette to contour cheeks, Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24 Hour Cream-Gel Shadow in Barely Branded to highlight the high plains of the face and added Eye Studio Color Molten in Rose Haze to give the cheeks a pink glow.

On the eyes, he created a tinted effect by applying Eye Studio Color Molten in Taupe Craze up to the browbone and below the lower lashline. Then he added Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24 Hour Cream-Gel Shadow in Barely Branded on the inner corners of the eyes and the bronze shade in Eye Studio Color Molten in Endless Mocha on the lid before glossing it up with Baby Lips in Quenched. He further defined the eyes by adding Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner from the middle of the lid outward past the edge of the eye.

Finally, he added Color Sensational Lipcolor in Born With It and Color Sensational The Mattes in Nude Embrace on the lips for a soft, natural-looking effect.

Syfu created two different looks on the models. To create the braided bun for a girly look, she prepped wet hair with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Creating Sea Foam, rough dried it and lightly finished the hairline and ends with a Mason Pearson brush. Using a tail comb, she created a center part from the forehead to the middle of the crown, then parted hair from ear to ear and back brush this section for added texture. Next, she pulled the top section of hair straight back and secured with an elastic. Then, she divided the remaining hair into two parts and back brush and tied sections into a knot at the top of the ponytail and started a three-strand braid through the lengths, fastening ends with an elastic. She wrapped the lengths of the braid into a bun at the nape of the neck and secured with large hairpins before setting with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Ultra Brushable Hairspray.

For the texturized down-do a la Bianca Jagger at a boys club, Syfu first prepped hair with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Creating Sea Foam and rough dried it. Then she back brushed hair for a light, airy texture and created a center part. To finish, she applied TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Perfecting Gelee and TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Sea Salt Spray throughout the hair for texture.

September 8th, 2014

“To complement the bohemian pastels and gauzy romanticism of Rebecca’s collection, we focused on petal pink hues and softly illuminated skin with an unexpected sheen.” explained Stila Global Director of Creative Artistry Sarah Lucero. First, Lucero applied Stila Stay All Day Foundation and set it with Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation. To add a pink glow on the cheeks, she used All Over Shimmer Powder in Kitten. Next, she defined the eyes with the Window Shadow Palette and Smudgestick in Espresso then coated lashes with Mile High Mascara. To finish, she groomed brows with Stila All Day Brow and dabbed Color Balm Lipstick in Olivia and Vivienne.

Inspired by the unique 3D prints and color scheme in the collection, manicurist Michelle Saunders working for essie created freehand watercolor nail art for the hands. She started with one coat of blanc to make the polish shades appear brighter. Then beginning at the nail bed, she applied one coat of bikini so teeny to half of the nail. Next, she applied one coat of turquoise & caicos to the remaining half of the nail, slightly overlapping with bikini so teeny in the middle. She dipped a striping brush in lollipop and created a thin horizontal fault line across each nail. Directly after creating the fault line, she applied a generous amount of good to go top coat over the entire nail and continued to blend towards the tip of the nail until the desired look is achieved.

On damp hair, stylist Odile Gilbert working for Kérastase applied Mousse Bouffante and created a side part and blow dried hair with fingers. Section by section, she spritzed Spray A Porter and used a 2″ barrel curling iron in a vertical direction, twisting hair around the barrel and leaving the ends loose to create soft waves. Once all sections are curled, she ran fingers through the hair and sprayed V.I.P liberally throughout. Finally, she set the look in place with Laque Dentelle.

Celebrity Makeup: Get Katy Perry’s Makeup & Nail Look at 2013 AMAs

November 26th, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Last night at the 2013 American Music Awards, singer Katy Perry rocked a cute polka dot Oscar de la Renta strapless gown with matching nails and her signature red lip.

Katy Perry's Makeup Look at 2013 AMAs
Celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey created the beautiful look on Katy using CoverGirl Cosmetics.

“The moment I saw Katy’s beautiful Oscar de la Renta gown I knew we would do a red lip. Pairing it with black liner and lots of lashes we created a look that is “classic Katy.”

I started with a sheer application of CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation in Buff Beige #825. This foundation is perfect for the red carpet because it provides full coverage but can be blended sheerly for light yet durable coverage. It lasts forever and the 20 SPF is great for a daytime red carpet event because they have to stand in the sun for so long!

For the eyes, I started by creating a classic Hollywood eye line using CoverGirl Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Black Fire #410. I love this pencil because you can create the look of a liquid liner but it’s much easier to apply. I accentuated the crease of her lid using Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Melted Caramel #330 and finished with the new Bombshell Volume Mascara in Very Black #800 – it creates extreme volume!

I then set the foundation with a light dusting of CoverGirl + Olay Pressed Powder in Light #330 and warmed the apples of her cheeks with Clean Glow Blush in Roses #100. I finished the look with a classic bold red lip. I used CoverGirl LipPerfection in Hot #305 with matching liner. I used the liner to perfect her lip shape before applying color.”

The Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara makes lashes ten times more noticeable than bare lashes! It’s amazing!”

To match the polka dots on Katy’s dress, celebrity manicurist Kimmie Kyees created a custom mani with 2 coats of Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Color in Slick Black as a base color. Then, she dotted on Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in White On to create the polka dot effect. For a flawless seal and shine, Kimmie used Sally Hansen Triple Shine Top Coat to finish the look.

NYFW Exclusive Coverage: Graphic Eye + Pastel Look at Zac Posen S/S 2014

September 15th, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

At Zac Posen Spring/Summer 2014, lead makeup artist Kabuki working for M·A·C Cosmetics created “one graphic element” while “keeping the face very romantic, beautiful” with soft colors on the cheeks and lip.

Kabuki started by blending Face Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation onto skin for a matte finish, followed with a bit of concealer as needed to perfect. He added Hush Cream Colour Base over the high points of the cheekbone for a pearly, flesh-toned highlight, and set with Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Loose Powder.

On the eyes, Kabuki mixed Bare Canvas and Sublime Nature Paints together and blended them over the eyes to match the overall skintone. He lined the waterline with a nude pencil, M·A·C PRO NC15/NW20 Chromagraphic Pencil, to open up the eyes and swept Lightscapade Mineralize Skinfinish on the lid to add dimension. Next, he created a graphic liner look along the upper lashline with On The Hunt Superslick Liquid Eyeliner while keeping the bottom of the eye smudgy with Feline Pencil. “This results in a bigger eye, which goes perfectly with the dramatic volumes in Zac’s collection,” said Kabuki. Lashes were coated with Haute & Naughty Too Black Lash Mascara and MAC #43 lashes were applied to the top lash. On models with prominent brows, concealer was used to tone them down.

To finish the look, Kabuki blended Keep It Loose Casual Color Lip & Cheek Colour (available Spring/Summer 2014) on the lips with a fluffy brush.

Manicurist Gina Edwards created an ultra-romantic, feminine “faded rosy garden” manicure with Morgan Taylor Coming Up Roses, an earthy pink, at the base, and fading at the tip to Morgan Taylor Polished Up, a cool pastel.

Runway Beauty: Flawless Skin and Orange Lips at DKNY S/S 2014

September 11th, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Orange lipstick is definitely making a comeback next season! At DKNY Spring/Summer 2014, makeup artist Charlotte Willer working for Maybelline New York compared bold orange lips with a flawless complexion while the Essie team created a sweet look on the nails.

Charlotte evened out models complexion with Dream Lumi Concealer and FIT me! Pressed Powder. She added Dream Bouncy Blush in Hot Tamale with her fingertips directly onto cheeks, for a dewy touch of color.

The eyes were kept minimal with a light layer of Color Tattoo Metal Cream Gel Shadow in Barely Branded on the lid. Brows were groomed and shaped using Master Shape Brow Pencil.

To finish, the lips were coated with a mixture of Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Electric Orange and Neon Red and blotted to create a matte, stained finish.

On the nails, a coat of Essie Limo-scene was applied, topped with a coat of Essie Mademoiselle and finished with Essie Good To Go Top Coat.

Hair-wise, Eugene Souleiman, Global Creative Director at Wella Professionals, created a stylish classic look with a low side parting and a ponytail. He started by freshly washed and conditioned hair, using Wella Professionals Enrich Shampoo and Conditioner, to ensure hair is in perfect condition. Then he applied Wella Professionals Velvet Amplifier through the hair and used a soft bristle brush blow dry the hair flat to the head. Next, he used a straightening iron through the hair to create a smooth, polished look and created a low side part while gently brushing the hair flat to the head, spraying the hair with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray. Gently, using a soft bristle brush, he sprayed again with Stay Essential Finishing Spray, pulling the hair over to a low pony tail on the opposite side of the head to the parting, ensuring that all fly always are tamed. Next, he secured the hair in to the low pony tail with elastic, letting the pony tail come forward over the shoulder. Finally, Eugene took a small pump of Wella Professionals Oil Reflections, smoothed on to the palms of his hands, then took a soft brush and gently rubbed this across the palms to pick up the smallest amount of product, and then brushed the pony tail section.
