Makeup: Kabuki for M·A·C Cosmetics
Hair: Odile Gilbert for Kérastase Paris

“Simplicity is its strength, which fits with mood of this season’s collection.” Explained key make-up artist Kabuki. He first toned the skin with witch-hazel to get the skin very clean. Then, he applied a diffusing clear primer all over and a very sheer layer of Face & Body Foundation in warmer tones around the outside of the face and across the nose and cheeks. A bit of Something Special Crèmeblend Blush was used to heighten the translucent, sun-kissed look of the skin while Shine Mixing Medium added for an athletic glow on the top of the cheekbone. Any blemishes or discolorations showing through were hidden with Studio Finish Concealer applied with a tiny brush. A peach-toned concealer was used to brighten the under-eye area.

On the eyes, Groundwork Paint Pot was applied as a sheer layer to shape and lightly sculpt. M·A·C PRO Gloss Texture and M·A·C PRO Reflects Pearl Glitter were mixed together and swept over the eye for added dimension and shine while top and bottom lashes were coated with two coats of Haute & Naughty Black Lash Mascara.

To create the bold pout, Kabuki filled in the lips with Cherry Lip Pencil to enhance the natural lip shape before adding Red Lip Mix over the pencil for a deep orangy/red, semi-matte finish.

On dry hair, Gilbert created a deep side part and put an ample amount of Forme Fatale on the top and sides of the head for an ultra-glossy look. Using a small tooth comb, she combed the sides in an upwards motion, tight against the head and worked in more Forme Fatale. She added Lift Vertige to the front section for volume, and combed in an upward swoop to create a modern push wave, using the tail of the comb to detail the look. Next, she blow dried the push wave to set the style and applied Kératine Thermique throughout the rest of the lengths to create a shiny, wet look. Finally, she locked the style in place with Laque Noire.

Makeup Breakdown

Makeup by Kayleen McAdams for COVERGIRL.

I started with a concealer (COVERGIRL Invisible Concealer in Honey) under her eyes and then wherever she needed a little extra coverage. I then used COVERGIRL Simply Ageless Foundation in Soft Honey (#255) and set that with COVERGIRL’s Clean Pressed Powder in Warm Beige (#145)
I then used COVERGIRL’s Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush in Plush Peach and set that cream blush with COVERGIRL’s Classic Colors Blush in Natural Glow. COVERGIRL Queen Collection 1-Kit Eyeshadow in Hot Toffee in the crease, COVERGIRL Liquiline Eyeliner in Black Fire along the top and bottom lash line, COVERGIRL Queen Collection 1-Kit Eyeshadow in Black Tie along the top and bottom lash line to set the eyeliner, and COVERGIRL Lash Blast Volume mascara in Very Black.  COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipcolor in Rapture (#280) on lips.

Hair Breakdown

Celebrity Stylist, Jen Atkin created a simple old Hollywood Look for Sofia Vergara at the 63rd Annual Emmy Award.s Atkin created a simple and clean, yet classic look. The look was almost “Barbie like” said Atkin, “I wanted the hair to reflect the elegance of her dress.”

Apply a light volume mousse to wet hair, starting two inches from the roots, to give the hair volume and body. Apply KeSARI Indian Oil Hair Serum two inches from the bottom of the hair and down, to keep hair shiny and healthy on the ends. Blow the hair dry using a medium sized round brush. Apply 1 ½ inch rollers to the top portion of the hair, using 1 inch rollers from the crown of the head to the nape of the neck. Using low heat, lightly blow dry the hair while the rollers are in to set the curls. Leave the rollers in for 10-to 15 minutes. To create the final shape of the look, spray hairspray onto a brush and brush through the hair, creating a slight side part. Finish the look by applying a dime size drop of KeSARI Indian Oil Hair Serum to the palms of hands and run through the hair, adding a final shine.
