Get the Look: Sophia Vergara at the Smurfs Premiere.

Sofia Vergara looked as stunning as usual at the Smurfs Premiere earlier this week. With her makeup done by Celebrity Makeup Artist Kayleen McAdams for COVERGIRL and hair done by Jen Atkin for Fekkai, her look can be achieved with the following rundown of products and tips.

 

From Kayleen:

Sofia had the most beautiful purple dress so I wanted to do a shimmery bronze eye so the makeup would be more subtle and the dress could take full focus. Because of the heat we layered bronzers on both the cheeks and eyes with other products so it would have staying power all night.

On her face I used COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation in Chestnut, COVERGIRL TruConceal #4  and COVERGIRL Clean oil-control Pressed Power in Soft Honey to eliminate any shine.

To highlight her cheeks and give a touch of color, I used COVERGIRL TruBlend Minerals Bronzer in Natural Bronze and COVERGIRL Cheekers Blush in Classic Pink.

To get her shimmery bronze eye, I applied COVERGIRL Intense ShadowBlast in Brown Bling (I used this first on the lid with the shadow on top to give it staying power in this heat) followed by Queen Collection Eye Shadow in Fire It Up all over the lid and along the bottom lash line and COVERIGIRL Queen Collection Eye Shadow in Copper Penny on the outer corners. I lined her eyes with COVERGIRL LiquilineBlast eyeliner in Black Fire and finished the eyes with multiple coats of COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara in Very Black.

To create Sofia’s soft, shiny pink lip, I applied COVERGIRL LipPerfection lipliner in Splendid followed by COVERGIRL LipPerfection lipcolor in Entwined.

Jen said,

“I wanted to give Sofia a sexy, glam beachy wave for The Smurfs premiere.  First, I prepped her hair with Fekkai Volumizing Mousse as well as Fekkai Beach Wave Spray at the roots. I then blew out her hair with a 1" round brush, and set the top center section with Velcro rollers. I then used a 2" T3 Curling Iron to set curls going back and away from her face. Once set, I sprayed Fekkai Sheer Hold Spray and used my fingers to break up the curls. We took the top center section out of the rollers and used dry shampoo at the roots to keep the volume locked in. Finally, I curled her bangs back with a Chi Flat Iron to finish.”

Get the Look: Jennifer Aniston at the Horrible Bosses Premiere.

CHANEL Celebrity Makeup Artist, Angela Levin not only created Jennifer Aniston’s sultry beauty look for this summer’s hottest new comedy, Horrible Bosses, she also created the world’s most recognized and beloved actress’s look for the UK premiere of the movie.

While Angela created an edgy, sexy look for Jennifer’s character, the love-deprived Dr. Julia Harris, she and Jennifer decided to contrast that seductive look with a classic, elegant appearance for the red carpet. Instead of creating, bold “come-hither” smoky eyes, Angela used softer colors from the newest collection of Illusion D’Ombre Eyeshadows from CHANEL. Mixing shimmering white and khaki shades from the new line, Angela delicately applied the colors to Jennifer’s lids. Angela then used darker shades to create a very muted, fading smoky eye which made Jennifer’s blue eyes standout on the red carpet. Angela finished by applying two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Intense mascara which gave a bit of drama to the entire look.

Jennifer’s lips were adorned with one of the hottest new products from CHANEL, Rouge Coco Shine. Angela used a pearlized, nude beige shade which gave a dashing hint of color and sparkle to the lips. Lastly, to make sure Jennifer’s skin was glamorously supple, Angela applied CHANEL Sublimage La Crème to all exposed parts of her body and added a hint of shine with a golden skin illuminator.

Products Used:

CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Eyeshadows in Fantasme and Epatant, $32.00 each.
