Get Emmy Rossum’s Makeup and Nail Look At 2013 Met Gala!

May 7th, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Emmy Rossum ditched her signature dewy look for a bolder, glam punk look at the 2013 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Annual Costume Institute Gala last night. “Emmy’s look was a mixture of beautiful femininity and rock ‘n’ roll edginess with her romantic gown and bold eye makeup,” said her makeup artist Jo Baker.

Complexion
To create a dewy look with medium coverage, Baker started with NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation in Nude. She paired the liquid foundation with NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation in Creamy Natural to bring out Emmy’s beautiful skin and natural complexion. Baker then applied the NYX Green Tea Blotting Papers to ensure the durability of Emmy’s makeup.

Cheeks
To create the perfect sculpted cheek, Baker swept NYX Highlight & Contour Powder on the sides of Emmy’s cheekbones and down her nose. To add a healthy glow to Emmy’s skin, Baker then blended the contouring powder with NYX Powder Blush in Natural on the apples of Emmy’s cheeks up to her hairline. She then applied NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam along Emmy’s collarbone and shoulders for a shimmery highlighter that would reflect perfectly off the bright lights of the Met Ball cameras.

Eyes
To create a strong canvas for Emmy’s dramatic eye makeup, Baker started with NYX Eye Shadow Base in White. Baker then applied NYX Cream Shadow in Chocolate to create the overall shape and dimension of the eye and eyebrow. She added extra definition by pressing the NYX Roll On Eye Shimmer in Onyx with her finger onto the outside of the eyes and then blending with a flat brush. She then softened the shimmer of the shadows with NYX Nude Matte Shadow in Tryst to make the smoky eye makeup look more sophisticated and wearable. NYX Kohl Kajal Black Liner was used to create a winged liner that extended to the outside of Emmy’s eyes and blended up to the eyebrows. To complete the look, Baker applied NYX Propel My Eyes Mascara heavily on her top lashes.

Lips
Keeping the focus on Emmy’s strong eyes and brows, Baker finished her look with a soft peach lip color using NYX Round Lipstick in Fortune Cookie.

Nails
Inspired by her gorgeous Donna Karan Atelier gown dress, Katie Hughes, butter LONDON Global Colour Ambassador, created elegant yet edgy nail art for Emmy using extra pieces of lace – the same fabric from which her dress was created – supplied by Donna Karan. The designer also supplied Emmy with individual crystals, also used on her dress, to help enhance her nail look, adding a bit of punk rocker edge. “Emmy knew she really wanted to incorporate the fabric from the dress somehow, but with a twist that gave it an unexpected edge,” said Katie. “Together we decided to use both the fabric and the stones to create a nail that was both delicate and edgy. It looked awesome.”

How To
Katie began by painting Emmy’s nails with two coats of butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Yummy Mummy followed by a layer of butter LONDON P.D. Quick Top Coat. She then cut individual pieces of lace to perfectly cover Emmy’s nails and placed them down on the wet nails, letting the lace dry on top of the nail. Once the nails were dry, Katie placed glue on random spots of the nail where the crystals would be adhered, and then placed each crystal onto the nail.

How To Get Nikki Reed’s Makeup & Hair at Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 Premiere

November 13th, 2012

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

At the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 movie premiere in Los Angeles yesterday, Nikki Reed stepped onto the red carpet showcasing a natural, yet sultry look. See how celebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles for NYX Cosmetics and Wella Professionals stylist Mara Roszak created the look after the jump!

How To Get Nikki Reed's Makeup and Hair at Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 Premiere
Complexion
Using a foundation brush, Stiles swiped NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation in Warm Sand along the bridge of Reed’s nose, cheeks, chin and forehead and then used a BeautyBlender to drag the foundation to the outside of the face creating very sheer coverage. Stiles then applied NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand in Medium where needed and then set the foundation with NYX HD Studio Photogenic Finishing Powder.

Cheeks
To maintain Reed’s natural glow, Stiles did subtle contouring using NYX Highlight and Contour Powder applying just a touch of product under the cheekbones. “I have been into very subtle contouring lately…and the key is subtle,” noted Stiles. “The trick is using a very soft brush and just a touch of product. It’s easier to build than take away!” Stiles then dabbed NYX Stick Blush in Hibiscus onto the apples of her cheeks.

Eyes
Stiles applied NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Slate from Reed’s lash line just above the crease and below the bottom lashes, pressing it in and blending with her fingers. She then swept a light coat of NYX Single Eye Shadow in Sensual over the lid and then added NYX Slim Eye Pencil in Taupe to the waterline to create a sultry finish, without closing the eye. A few NYX Fabulous Lashes in Flare Lash Medium were then added to create fullness and length and then three coats of NYX Fly With Me Mascara were applied to Reed’s well curled upper lashes and two coats to the bottom lashes. To finish the look, Stiles filled in Reed’s brows with just a touch of the NYX Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown.

Lips
Stiles wanted the focus to stay on Reed’s strong, soft eyes so she finished with a warm, neutral lip using NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in Tanned.

Hair
Mara gave Nikki Reed a structured and clean look that exuded luminosity to let her natural beauty take center stage.

Step-By-Step Styling:

1. Start by applying a couple pumps of Wella Professionals Flowing Form to damp hair and brush through.

2. Part hair using a rat tail comb, and blow out hair with a boar bristle round brush. To tame any fly aways, apply a dime sized amount of Wella Professionals Smooth Brilliance by rubbing into the palms of your hands and through hair, starting at the ends and working your way up to the roots.

3. Pull hair tight to the nape of your neck and secured it with a Bungee elastic band.

4. Holding your pony, loop your hair under the elastic to create a small bun and secured with bobby pins.

5. Take the rest of your hair and wrapped it around the elastic.

6. To finish the look, lightly spray Wella Professionals Shimmer Delight to add extra shine and then mist all over with Wella Stay Essential Finishing Spray.

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!


Makeup
“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.

Hair
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.

NYX I Dream of St. Thomas Eyeshadow Palette Review, Photos, Swatches

November 13th, 2010

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

NYX I Dream of St. Thomas Eyeshadow Palette
NYX I Dream of St. Thomas Eyeshadow Palette

Color That Doesn’t Break the Bank

NYX I Dream of St. Thomas Eyeshadow Palette ($8.75 for 0.28 oz.) contains five eyeshadows and is part of NYX’s Caribbean Collection of eyeshadow palettes. (I reviewed St. Lucia previously.) NYX is one of my favorite brands for more affordable makeup, because the quality is consistently high and the range is huge.

St. Thomas includes: a dark charcoal gray with soft silver shimmer (similar to MAC’s Knight Divine); brightened cotton candy pink with a satin sheen; bright silver with a near metallic shimmer-sheen (similar to MAC’s Electra); pale golden peach with a high sheen; and a medium-dark, mint green with a pearly shine.

The pigmentation was excellent on the pink, peach, and green shades; it was still quite good on the charcoal and silver shades, too, but a touch sheerer than the other three. My favorite shade is the minty green, because you don’t see that kind of color–or with such vibrancy–by every brand. These shades have a soft, smooth texture, though there is some residual powder kick up during use. NYX eyeshadows have worked well for me and only fade minimally, but not noticeably so until six or more hours of wear.

If you want to know more about how products are evaluated, read out Rating System FAQ! 🙂

  • Product: 26/30
  • Value: 9/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: If you’re on a budget, NYX’s palettes are worth considering. They maintain quality and pigmentation while still keeping the price down.

AVAILABILITY: NYX
