Get Keira Knightley’s Smoky Eye Makeup At Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit Premium!

January 19th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

I have always loved British Keira Knightley for her sultry makeup looks and sexy accent. And at the Los Angeles Premiere of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Kate Lee gave her a gorgeous blue smoky eye and nude lips to go with her Chanel dress.

“Keira wore a navy Chanel knitted dress with white details. I wanted to keep her looking more of the moment, and so we went for a navy creamy smudged eye,” explained Kate.

Kate started out by prepping the skin with Chanel Hydra Beauty Crème Riche and Chanel Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 to give a nice uniformed glow.

On the eyes, Kate first lined the inside of the eye, upper and lower lash line with Chanel Le Crayon Khôl Intense Eye Pencil in Marine, then worked along the lash line above and below them gently blended the lines. Next, she reached for Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Apparition, a beautiful shimmering navy to melt away the lines and give a soft effect. Then, she curled the lashes and gave them one coat of Chanel Inimitable Mascara in Noir. On the cheeks, Kate used a nude blush, Le Blush Crème de Chanel in Cheeky (available May 2014).

To finish, Kate used Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Crème Lip Colour in Mademoiselle for a natural blushing lip.

Chanel Beauty is available at Nordstrom.

Molly began by prepping Kate’s skin with By Terry’s Sève de Rose ultra-glow serum and then sparingly applied Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation. She then based her cheeks using Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch in Peach Glow. A touch of rose was given to Kate’s cheeks with Laura Mercier Cream Blush in Rosebud and to finish off her radiance Molly dusted the apples with Rimmel Lasting Finish Soft Colour Blush in Santa Rose.

For Kate’s mesmerizing stare, Molly made her eyes pop with a sexy golden khaki hue. She started the look by applying Rimmel ScandalEyes Eye Shadow Stick in Bulletproof Beige and continued to deepen her shadow with NARS Duo Shadow in Paramaribo. She then defined Kate’s stare using Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Black to line her eyes super close to the upper lash line as well as just below the lower lash line. For the extra pop Molly lined the inside of Kate’s wet line with Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Nude. To finalize her sexy bold eye look, she then applied two coats of Rimmel ScandalEyes Show Off Mascara in Black.

To finish off the look, Molly applied Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Pink Blush and topped it off with Rimmel Stay Glossy Lipgloss in Always Lovely.

How To Get Kate Beckinsale’s Hair and Makeup at Total Recall Premiere

August 5th, 2012

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

With the help of makeup artist Molly R. Stern and hairstylist Mara Roszak, Kate Beckinsale once again wowed us at the premiere of “Total Recall” earlier this week. See how to recreate the look at home after the jump!

“Her look was edgy and undone while still looking flawless for a big Hollywood night out. Wearing a reptile printed Armani Prive dress, Kate left looking like a serpent goddess,” explains Molly.

Molly started by prepping Kate’s skin with Jurlique Rose Water Balancing Mist, followed by By Terry Serum De Rose and Arcona Eye Dew. For a sheer yet luminous finish, Molly used Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation. Next, she applied Laura Mercier Creme Cheek Color in Oleander to the apples of Kate’s cheeks and dusted NYX illuminating Bronzer in Magnetic high on the cheek bones to reflect the light.

On the eyes, Molly started with NYX Cream Shadow in Gunmetal on the lid then brightened the shade by dusting the olive green shadow from YSL 5 Colour Harmony for Eyes in Garden of Eden all over up to crease. Next, she popped the inside of Kate’s lid with Beauty is Life Perfect Shine Eyes in Palmery. To define Kate’s lash line, Molly applied Hourglass Calligraphy Black Eyeliner as a base and topped that off with Glam Liner Aqua Luxe by NYX in #08 which is a golden olive color. Molly lined underneath the lashline with the same olive liner to get a smudgy finish that would last all night. She curled Kate’s lashes with Shu Uemura lash curler and then applied two coats of Laura Mericer Full Blow Volume Lash Building Mascara.

To finish off the look, Molly applied Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Canvas, blotted that off then added the NYX Glam Lip Gloss in #07 VIP.

Taking inspiration from Kate’s structured dress, Mara created a texturized look that is “edgy and undone, with an effortless feel.”

Step 1. Prep and Texturize
Achieving the undone quality of Kate’s hair relies on creating texture while preventing flyaways. Start by evenly applying John Frieda Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse through towel-dried hair to tame frizz, boost shine and build texture. For added volume, spray roots with a texturizing spray and rough dry.

Step 2. Secure the Style
Next, twist small sections of hair to create tousled texture. Once hair is completely dry, gently tease the crown for a bit of height. Next, pull hair back create a loose braid. Tuck the ends under and pin in place with bobby pins, crossing the pins to secure the look and make sure the braid stays in place. Allow pieces in the front to fall out and frame the face.

Step 3. Polish and Perfect
To finish the look, spray John Frieda Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hair Spray on your fingertips and pinch sections while rubbing your fingers together on the hair to add more texture and break up the look. Then in an even, all-around motion, mist a thin coat of hair spray to set the look.

New Year, New Nails with Zeva Natural Nails

January 6th, 2012

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Welcome to Fab Over Forty New Year, New Nails with Zeva Natural Nails

A friend once said to me “One way to tell if a woman really takes care of herself is by looking at her hands”. Keeping nails neat and pristine is always on my top of priority lists, so it was with great excitement that I got to meet Mike, owner of Zeva Natural Nails.  He demonstrated some of the Zeva products on a mutual friend Kate, and I was instantly impressed with the Zeva products!

First he applied the Cuticle Oil Pen to the cuticles to soften them.  The cuticle pen is easy to use – just press the tip against the cuticles and it retracts to release an oil that is 100% natural.  It contains 16 natural oils including tocotrienol, a super-potent form of Vitamin E, which is 40-60 times more potent in preventing free radical damage. It also helps to prevent nail breakage. Some of the other ingredients include jojoba seed oil, tea tree oil, wheat germ oil, sesame oil, grape seed oil and many more.  The tip of the pen is strong enough to push back the cuticles as well.  I keep this pen next to my bed and use it nightly.  Although after the first couple of days it worked so well that I probably don’t need to continue to use it EVERY day.  But I love the scent – a mixture of the tea tree oil and almond oil comes through and smells divine.

Once done conditioning the cuticles, its time to move on to the Zeva Austrian Crystal file (shown above). This file is shaped so it’s a little larger on one end than the other, but the overall shape follows the curve of the base of the nail.  This is used for pushing back and removing excess cuticle. It’s made of pulverized Austrian crystal and pulverized ceramic.  It’s surprisingly very smooth, and is also used file the nail.  According to Mike, “the end of a fingernail will only be as smooth as the file you are using”.  When using this file, you can go in both directions without damaging the nail.  It gives the tips of your nails a smooth end so it “seals” them.  This also helps to prevent breakage of the nail.

Next, Mike used the three buffing files on Kate’s nails.  They’re clearly marked – #1 Cleaning, #2 Smoothing and #3 Finishing.  # 1 Cleans and removes ridges on the nail giving it a nice surface to use #2, which smooths the nail’s surface out.  #3 buffs the nails to a nice, clean shine.  All three of these buffing files have a different texture to them, but were all softer than I had imagined them being.  Kate’s nails looked amazing!

One last step that Mike did to Kate’s nails (hang nail was pre-manicure as Kate will attest to!) was to top them with the One Step French Manicure, which is shown on Kate’s finished nails.  It gives a nice finished look to the nails with a high shine that is slightly pink.  It’s not the typical dramatic pink/white French tip that many are accustomed to, but instead a very pretty “polished” pink flush look. The result is perfect for those who don’t want or like to use color on their nails, but yet want a nice looking manicure for their nails.

Overall, I was very impressed with the Zeva Natural Nails products!  There are additional products to the line like Nail Nourishing Cream, Orange Blossum polish remover pads, Nail Guard and more.  You can get the basic nail kit, which is shown above and includes the three buffing files, the Austrian Crystal File and the Cuticle Oil Pen all in a storage/travel case for only $45.  You can get some serious savings doing your manicures at home this year!  And, they don’t charge shipping on orders over $40. Love that!
