Get the Look: Kristen Stewart at the Breaking Dawn Premiere.

Fekkai Celebrity Stylist AdirAbergel Created A Textured Up-Do for Kristen Stewart at the Premiere of Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.

Inspiration: An edgy, yet romantic look. Adir was inspired to create an up-do that still felt like Kristen’s usual tousled and textured style with a touch of rockability.

How To Get the Look: Adir began by applying Fekkai Bouffant Lifting and Texturizing Spray Gel to the roots of the hair to build texture. He then applied Fekkai Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray throughout the rest of the hair and rough dried it to create a beachy and textured base for the up-do. Adir then took random pieces and created standard braids, fishtail braids and twists throughout the hair in various sizes, leaving the very top of the hair loose. He then took all of the hair except for the loose hair at the top, and knotted and twisted it to create an up-do. He used hairpins to create a very undone look. To finalize the look Adir backcombed the front of the hair to add volume, then pushed it back and pinned it in place. He secured the look by spraying the hair with Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray.

All products by Fekkai: Fekkai Bouffant Lifting and Texturizing Spray Gel($25), Fekkai Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray ($25), and Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray ($21).Available at Fekkai.com and Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue stores.

Get the Look: Sofia Vergara at the Happy Feet Two Premiere.

Sofia Vergara was made up by celebrity makeup artist, Kayleen McAdams for the Happy Feet Two Premiere.

"To get a flawless, polished look, I used COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation in Nutmeg, then I applied COVERGIRL Clean Pressed Powder in Warm Beige. For the cheeks, I used COVERGIRL Cheekers Blush in Classic Pink and then finished with COVERGIRL TruBlend Minerals Bronzer in Natural Bronze.

To create the smoky eye look, I used COVERGIRL Intense ShadowBlast in Brown Bling, then I lined her eyes at the root of the top and bottom lashes with COVERGIRL LiquiLineBlast Eye Liner in Brown Blaze. Finally, I used two coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast Fusion Mascara in Very Black on both her top and bottom lashes to build volume and length.

For her lips, I used COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lip Color in Eternal and lined the lips with COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lip Liner in Sublime."

Get the Look: Taylor Swift at the CMA's.

Celebrity Makeup Artist Lorrie Turk created the look for Taylor Swift at this years Country Music Awards.

I was inspired by the drop dead gorgeousness of the J. Mendel gown Taylor wore. 


"The gown was a very cool toned dove hue and later in the show she wore a jewel toned sweater to perform in, so the color palette was cooler.  Because of the lack of time to make changes, the makeup on the red carpet had to work with the pared down look of the performance.  We only had time to make a quick lip color change. 

I started by using COVERGIRL Natureluxe Silk Foundation for a fresh finish on her skin.  On her eyes I used COVERGIRL Intense ShadowBlast in Platinum Pop followed by a very thin line of COVERGIRL LineExact eyeliner in Very Black and finished her eyes with coats of COVERGIRL Lash Perfection Mascara on her lashes.
 
For her lips on the red carpet, I used COVERGIRL ShineBlast in Sparkler--and for the performance we switched it to COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Gloss Balm in Peony.
 
For a little color and shimmer on her cheeks, I finished by brushing on COVERGIRL TruBlend Minerals Blush in Pure Romance."
