October 1st, 2015

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

The Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2016 show in Milan presented a fashion collection which is the Designers’ tribute to Italy. The Designers’ vision, “Italy is Love”, was complemented by a makeup look highlighting luminous skin with a flawless, dewy finish; soft and smoky feline eyes and plump lips. Nails in a feminine, romantic shade completed the look.

To start, Dolce & Gabbana Essential UV Cream was first applied to hydrate the skin, followed by the Sheer Radiance Primer to build the perfect canvas for make up application. A flawless complexion was achieved using the Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation blended outward, from the center of the face out towards the ears. The Perfect Luminous Concealer was applied to the shadowed areas of the face and dabbed under the eyes, hiding blemishes and creating an impeccable base with an even skin tone. The cheeks displayed a warm, romantic flush by being delicately contoured with the new Blush in Bacio 50, which was swept onto the apples of the cheeks and up towards the ears. The face was highlighted using The Illuminator in Eva 3 along the cheekbones and on the bridge of the nose, while the skin was set with a light dusting of The Pressed Powder across the nose and forehead.

The romantic, soft feline eye look was achieved with a base of Perfect Mono Eyeshadow in Nude 30 blended across the eyelids. The two complementary shades of brown from The Eyeshadow Quad in Smoky 105 were mixed together and applied with a blending blush along the crease of the eyelids to create depth. For added definition, The Illuminator in Luna 4 was applied to the inner corner of the eyes and below the eyebrows. The upper lash lines were amplified by applying The Eyeliner in Chocolate 10 in an upward flick, and a line of the Glam Liner in Earthy Brown 2 was drawn along the upper lash line, to add an intense yet feminine feline finish. On the curled top lashes, layers of the Volumized Mascara in Black 1 were applied, paying special attention to the outer corners for definition and a lengthening finish.

The brows were sculpted with The Brow Liner in Soft Brown 1 and Mocha 3, using the wide part of the pencil nib with light, feathery strokes to fill the color outwards to the end of the brow, achieving a natural youthfulness to the face.

For beautiful, rosy plump lips, from the new collection of Dolce Matte Lipstick, a mixture of shades were combined to create perfectly tailored spring looks using Dolce Nudo 124, Miss Dolce 134, Dolce Dolcezza 212, Dolce Rosa 222, Dolce Sogno 223, Dolce Mamma 229, Dolce Excelsa 512 and Dolce Bacio 641. To give lips definition and to keep the lipstick in place, the lips were lined with The Lipliner in Mamma 17, Rosa 16, Dolcezza 15, Bacio 18 and Soft 6. Nails painted with The Nail Lacquer in Bella 210 evoke elegance and finish this soft and feminine Spring/Summer 2016 look.

Get Katy Perry’s Makeup Look at 2014 VMAs!

August 28th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

At the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, singer Katy Perry looked “quintessential Katy” in her signature bright red lips, black liquid liner and big lashes. Get the breakdown of the look straight from her makeup artist Jake Bailey!

Katy Perry Makeup look at 2014 Video Music Awards
“I first prepped her skin and then matched her skin tone to CoverGirl Ready, Set Gorgeous Foundation in Warm Beige and began by buffing a thin layer all over her face and neck using a flat tipped, soft bristled kabuki style brush for a seamless airbrushed effect. I highlighted her under eye area and cheekbones with CoverGirl Ready, Set, Gorgeous Concealer in Light/mMdium.

I began her eye makeup by blending a warm brown shadow, CoverGirl Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Scorching Cocoa into the crease of her eyelids and a pearlescent white shadow CoverGirl Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Blazing White onto her eyelid and browbone for highlights. I also dusted some of that same pearlescent shadow onto the ridge of her cheekbones for an extra glow. I then created a sharp jet black cat eye using CoverGirl Bombshell Intensity Liner. I finished the eye look with several coats of CoverGirl Bombshell Volume Mascara.

I then sculpted her cheekbones using the darker shade from the CoverGirl Clean Glow Blush compact and added warmth to the apples of her cheeks with the paler peachier shades in the compact.

I completed the look by lining her lips with CoverGirl LipPerfection Lip Liner in Hot and the matching CoverGirl LipPerfection Lip Color shade in Hot 305. I topped the lipstick with a coat of CoverGirl Flamed Out Shadow Pencil in Crystal Flame for a metallic sheen. Just before she left I dusted her with a touch of CoverGirl Ready, Set, Gorgeous Powder in light/medium to keep her looking fresh for the red carpet.”

CoverGirl is available at drugstores nationwide and drugstore.com.

Celebrity Makeup: Get Katy Perry’s Makeup & Nail Look at 2013 AMAs

November 26th, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Last night at the 2013 American Music Awards, singer Katy Perry rocked a cute polka dot Oscar de la Renta strapless gown with matching nails and her signature red lip.

Celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey created the beautiful look on Katy using CoverGirl Cosmetics.

“The moment I saw Katy’s beautiful Oscar de la Renta gown I knew we would do a red lip. Pairing it with black liner and lots of lashes we created a look that is “classic Katy.”

I started with a sheer application of CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation in Buff Beige #825. This foundation is perfect for the red carpet because it provides full coverage but can be blended sheerly for light yet durable coverage. It lasts forever and the 20 SPF is great for a daytime red carpet event because they have to stand in the sun for so long!

For the eyes, I started by creating a classic Hollywood eye line using CoverGirl Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Black Fire #410. I love this pencil because you can create the look of a liquid liner but it’s much easier to apply. I accentuated the crease of her lid using Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Melted Caramel #330 and finished with the new Bombshell Volume Mascara in Very Black #800 – it creates extreme volume!

I then set the foundation with a light dusting of CoverGirl + Olay Pressed Powder in Light #330 and warmed the apples of her cheeks with Clean Glow Blush in Roses #100. I finished the look with a classic bold red lip. I used CoverGirl LipPerfection in Hot #305 with matching liner. I used the liner to perfect her lip shape before applying color.”

The Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara makes lashes ten times more noticeable than bare lashes! It’s amazing!”

Nails
To match the polka dots on Katy’s dress, celebrity manicurist Kimmie Kyees created a custom mani with 2 coats of Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Color in Slick Black as a base color. Then, she dotted on Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in White On to create the polka dot effect. For a flawless seal and shine, Kimmie used Sally Hansen Triple Shine Top Coat to finish the look.
