“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.

Makeup: Yadim for Maybelline
Honey: Honey for Maybelline

Yadim created a clean base with Dream Wonder Fluid Touch Foundation, FIT Me! Concealer and FIT me! Pressed Powder. He contoured cheeks with a biege shade from The NUDES Palette and then used Color Tattoo 24HR Cream-Gel Shadow in Barely Branded to highlight cheekbones, inner eyes, the upper bridge of the nose and the chin.

To create a “creamier, slightly shiny” smoky eye, Yadim applied Master Kajal in Black Onyx close to the lashline. He then applied the black shade of Color Molten in Midnight Morphy (available January 2015) up to slightly above the crease. Next, he added the silver shade of Color Molten in Sapphire Mist to the inner corners and used Baby Lips in Quenched on eyelids to get a glossy sheen. Great Lash Mascara in Very Black was applied to top and bottom lashes, to separate and define.

On the lip, Yadim applied Baby Lips in Quenched, followed by a touch of FIT me! Concealer, for a nude lip look.

For a modern take on the classic French manicure, Honey applied Color Show Nail Lacquer in Born With It as a base and Patel to the Metal on the tips.

Hair: Jeanie Syfu for TRESemme

To create the hair look, Syfu started out with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Mousse on damp hair and rough-dried ends for volume and texture. Next, she finished blow-dry using a round brush to create fullness through the top of the head and the hairline. Then using the end of the comb, she sectioned off the center portion of the hair three-fourths of the way down and clipped up. Syfu created a Dutch braid (inside out or reverse French braid) on both sides of the head using the loose hair, beginning at the temple and working her way to the nape of the neck. She braided the remaining lengths, leaving ends out, and fastened with a clear elastic. Then she misted the top section of the hair with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Hair Spray and lightly brushed along the part. Next, Syfu began to French braid, leaving additional volume at the front and base. She gathered hair along the part, working 90 degrees from the head, and finished braiding lengths of the hair leaving ends out. She fastened with clear elastic and gathered all three braids before twisting into a low bun, leaving ends loose. Finally, she brushed the completed French braid upward creating a wind blown effect and sprayed with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Hair Spray.

Makeup: Diane Kendal for Lancome
Nails: Deborah Lippmann for Lancome
Hair: Odile Gilbert for Kerastase

To create the hydrated, glowing and dewy look, Kendal first prepped skin with Absolue L’Extrait Serum Ultimate Rejuvenating Concentrated – Elixir and Absolue L’Extrait Ultimate Radiance Mist. Next, she applied Nude Miracle Liquid to Powder Makeup to even skin out. Then, she applied La Base Hydra Glow on the cheekbones and Blush Subtil Palette All-In-One Contour Blush & Highlighter in Nectar Lace down the nose and on top of the cheekbones.

The eyes were softly-shaded with natural, curled lashes. Instead of mascara, Kendal curled lashes and blended Aquatique Waterproof Eyecolour Base in Sienne and Le Crayon Khôl in Black Coffee on the eyes for a soft smoky effect.

Kendal finished the look with lips that were matte and bare with L’Absolu Rouge in La Base.

Nails were white with Vernis in Love in Beige Romance.

On dry hair, Gilbert applied Mousse Bouffant and Ciment Thermique. Then using a paddle brush, she blow-dried hair in a backwards motion for volume. Next, she used a tail comb and created a side part. Leaving two-inch strips of hair on either side of the face, she pulled back the remaining hair and secured temporarily with a clip. Pulling hair from the clip, section by section, she sprayed with Laque Dentelle and twisted with fingers before curling around a 2″ barrel curling iron for added texture. Then, she collected the two front strips and pulled with the remaining length at the back of the head into a pony, securing at the nape of the neck with an elastic. Finally, she combed fingers through the lengths of hair to create a soft, natural look and applied Baume Double Je to prevent flyaways and secure hair in place.

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.

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.

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.

March 3rd, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

At the 86th Academy Awards last night, Jenna Dewan looked like a fairy in a nude Reem Acra gown with glowy, angelic makeup and a soft updo. Read on to see how Jenna’s makeup artist Jake Bailey and hairstylist Jen Atkin created the look!

Jenna Dewan's Hair & Makeup Look at 2014 Oscar Awards
First, Jake prepped Jenna’s skin with Sjal Cellular Renewal Cream before applying Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation. Then, he lined her eyes with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil and applied Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Mocha Latte, which he also used to fill in her brows. Next, he coated Jenna’s lashes with Avon Mega Effects Mascara and swiped mark Chic Frills Powder Blush on the apples of her cheeks. To complete the look, Jake applied Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Creamy Melon on the lips and added Chanel Jardin De Camelias Illuminating Powder on the cheekbones for a glow.

“The Oscars are a great time for my clients to get glammed. Jenna’s dress had so much detail and texture that I wanted to make sure to show off the collar and neckline. With the dress being so pretty, I wanted the hair to stay off her face, but to still have soft movement. I wanted her hair to look breeze blown, but still keep it up and off the dress.” explained Jen, representing CLEAR Scalp & Hair.

To get this look at home, start by washing hair with Clear Scalp & Hair’s Strong Lengths Shampoo and Conditioner. After washing, rough dry hair with hands and smooth out the ends with a brush. Next, set your part then flat iron hair, from mid-lengths to ends. Pull hair into a ponytail and let pieces fall as they may. Tease the ponytail for fullness and pin into a bun. Use a brush to lightly tease at the crown for soft flyaways and finish with hairspray.
