At the Dolce & Gabbana A/W ’14 show in Milan, Pat McGrath, brand Creative Advisor of Dolce & Gabbana Make Up, created a makeup look evoking a feeling of “enchanted beauty” while Redken Creative Consultant Guido swept the hair up in a soft, romantic style.

To achieve a flawless base with an even skintone, Pat applied Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation using the Foundation Brush. She started by creating an even base with one shade, blending it from the central point of the face outward until the product flowed seamlessly to the hairline and jaw. Then, Pat applied a paler tone around the eyes and on forehead, nose, cheeks and chin to achieve an illuminated finish. Finally, Pat then contoured the face by applying a light touch of Blush in Nude on the apples of the cheeks.

Turning her attention to the eyes, Pat applied the light shades of the Eyeshadow Quad in Desert all over the eyelid, followed by the new Perfect Mono – Cream Eye Color, the latest innovative mono eyeshadow from Dolce & Gabbana Make Up, set to arrive on counter at the end of June. This creamy shadow, which is easy to apply either with the tips of the fingers or with a brush, added further intensity and drama with a velvety, powdery finish. Pat used Perfect Mono in Cocoa in the crease of the eyes for further depth and mixed the shades Innocence and Gold Dust to highlight the eyelids.

To contour the eyes, Pat defined the upper and bottom lash lines by applying the Eyeliner in Black, drawing from the center to the outer corner. Along the top of the upper lash line, she drew a softly defined line of Intense Liquid Eyeliner in Black Intense to perfect the eye. Underneath, Pat outlined the bottom lashes once again using the Eyeliner in Black. The Eyeliner in Nude was then used to illuminate the inner corner of the eye.

On the upper lashes, layers of Intenseyes Mascara in Black Intense were applied, with Passioneyes Mascara in Terra applied to the bottom lashes for a volumized and curled lash look – the combination of the two mascaras made for a beautifully fresh and wide eyed finish.

The eyebrows are a key element of the look. Pat used the new Brow Liner in Soft Brown to draw and feather the brows, filling in the color using the nib of the pencil, and then brushing outwards to the end of the brow. Eyebrows are beautifully constructed, with a natural finish.

On the lips, Pat used the new Classic Cream Lipstick in Honey applied with the fingertips for a sophisticated nude effect. Then a hint of Perfect Luminous Concealer was used to even out the lips and illuminate, before a final touch of Sheer Shine Gloss in Acqua was applied to the center of the lips.

As a very final touch, Pat applied a light dust of the Pressed Powder.

To complement the look Pat chose the Nail Lacquer in Nude for a natural and elegant finish.

Hair
In order to achieve an airy quality to the hair, Guido first used Redken body full volume amplifier onto damp hair. Next, he added a spritz of Redken pillow proof blowdry two day extender before creating a loose braid and twisting it into a soft updo. “I used a very small amount of products to give the hair some friction and texture, but where it still felt soft. Once the hair was pinned back, I pulled out a few tendrils to add even more softness around the face. Dolce & Gabbana always take a soft approach to women’s beauty.” said Guido.

Get Anna Kendrick’s Hair & Makeup Look at 2014 Grammy Awards

January 27th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Tonight at 2014 Grammay Awards, actress Anna Kendrick looked gorgeous in a smoky eye, side-swept ‘do and silver Azzaro dress. Get her exact look after the jump!

Anna Kendrick Hair & Makeup Look at 2014 Grammy Awards
Makeup
Makeup artist Vanessa Scali for Maybelline New York created a makeup look featuring smoky, sultry eyes and effortless skin. To achieve this look, she used cream shadows, which look very modern on the skin and have a slight transparency that adds shape and drama. Additionally, a sheer, vibrant color on the cheeks and a rose/nude lip complimented Kendrick’s eyes, without competing with them. “Anna’s smoky eyes gave her look a little edge. Keeping the rest of her face effortless made this a very pretty and wearable look.”

To create Kendrick’s effortless skin, Scali began by applying Garnier Ultra-Lift Transformer Anti-Age Skin Corrector (Release Date: February 2014) mixed with Maybelline New York Fit Me Foundation to provide hydration and give the skin a soft, luminous glow. Scali swiped this combination along the bridge of Kendrick’s nose, cheeks, chin and forehead, using her fingers to blend the color to the outer edges of her face. Scali used Maybelline New York Fit Me Concealer under Kendrick’s eyes and on the inner hollow of the nose, just beside the inner corner of her eyes. To set, Scali applied Maybelline New York Dream Wonder Powder on Kendrick, focusing specifically on her T-Zone.

On Kendrick’s cheeks, Scali applied Maybelline New York Face Studio Master Glaze in Pink Fever. Smooth and sheer, this vibrant wash of color makes the skin look fresh and lit from within.

As for the eyes, Scali applied Maybelline New York Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal in Barely Branded from the lash line to the brow bone, and under the lower lashes in the inside corners of the eyes, brightening them in a soft and sexy way. She then applied Maybelline New York Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal in Bad to the Bronze; starting in the middle of the lid, extending out and beyond the natural eye, and then wrapping under the bottom lashes. For extra depth and definition, Scali layered Maybelline New York Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner in Blackest Black to the base of the lashes. She then curled Kendrick’s lashes and liberally applied two coats of Maybelline New York Falsies Big Eyes Mascara in Very Black to the top lashes, and one coat to the bottom.

To keep Kendrick’s eyes the center focus, Scali applied a light coat of Maybelline New York Color Elixir Lip Color in Rose Redefined for the finishing touch.

Hair
“Anna wore a silver Azzaro dress that was sleek and structured. Therefore, I wanted to compliment the dress with a soft, Veronica Lake-inspired hairdo,” said celebrity hairstylist Craig Gangi for Garnier. “But because it was the Grammys, we gave it a slight edge, tightly pulling up the right side for a modern, sleek look.”

Since Kendrick’s hair is naturally very curly and voluminous, Gangi started by applying Garnier Fructis Style Curl Calm Down Anti-Frizz Cream to Anna’s wet hair to tame the volume and eliminate frizz. He then blow-dried her hair very smooth.

Next, Cangi lightly sprayed Kendrick’s hair with Garnier Fructis Style Sleek & Shine Blow Dry Perfector Straightening Balm to protect from heat and add shine. Then, he thermal set her hair and after letting cool down, brushed it out and tightly pulled it back to one side.

Gangi then applied the tiniest drop of Garnier Fructis Style Sleek & Shine Sleek Finish 5-in-1 Serum Spray into his hands and smoothed over her hair for incredible shine. To complete the look, Garnier Fructis Style Extreme Control Anti-Humidity Hairspray was used to set the look and provide firm hold and repel moisture for a look that will last all-night.

Nails
“We created a modern take on the French manicure using essie’s chinchilly – the perfect grey – tipped with essie’s ignite the night from the encrusted collection for a hint of sparkle and dimension,” said celebrity manicurist, Lisa Postma. “The final look was elegant, but fun; the perfect look for the Grammy Awards!”

How To: Rock Pink Eyeshadow Like Megan Fox

December 29th, 2013

Recently, I came across this gorgeous spread of the beautiful Megan Fox in a pink monochromatic makeup look (perfect inspiration for the new

Tips On Rocking Pink Eyeshadow

* Define and darken the lashline. By using eyeliner and mascara on both top and bottom lashes like Megan did here, it will help to make your eyes appear less swollen.

* Pink hues tend to flatten the eye so sweep a slightly darker shade in the crease or outer corner of the eye to bring the contouring back. Megan is using a rosy color here but other good choices are brown, gray, navy, plum or black.

* Finish with a dab of shimmer in the inner corners to brighten up the eyes. You can also use a white eyeliner in the lower waterline.

* And don’t forget your eyebrows. Megan’s well-shaped and defined brows are no doubt key in making her eyes stand out, even with this lighter eye makeup.
