v  She also used L’Oréal Paris Extra-Intense Carbon Black Eyeliner to precisely define the rest of the eyes
v  Heather used a sheer amount of L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Continues Cocoa in the creases of Julie’s eyes
v  She then blended L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Iced Latte and Eternal Sunshine to create a sultry, smoky eye effect
v  An extra dab of L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Iced Latte was used under the eyebrow line to add additional definition and depth
v  Lips were kept natural with a hint of color using L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Le Gloss in Golden Splash

Get the Look: Paula Patton at the 2012 Golden Globes.

 

Paula Patton electirifed on the red carpet last night for the Golden Globe Awards. Her makeup was created by Fiona Stiles. Paula's hair look was designed by leading celebrity stylist Robert Steinken.

Makeup

Inspiration of the look:

Paula was wearing a strapless Monique Lhuillier gown, a beautiful sunny yellow.  We wanted to keep the look light and pretty, focusing on lashes and cheeks, playing up the happy element of the color.

Face:
After prepping the skin, I used a flat synthetic foundation brush to swipe on COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Liquid Makeup in Rich Sand, applying it to the bridge of the nose, the cheeks, the forehand and the chin.  Then I used the brush to blend the color out towards the jaw and hairline, going over the base with a criss-cross motion to ensure that it was well blended and there were no lines.  I used a little COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Concealer in Light to cover any darkness under the eye or redness along the side of the nose, feathering it out so it blended perfectly with the foundation.

Before I powdered with COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Pressed Powder in Light Bronze, I used a dual fiber brush to apply a bit of COVERIGRL + Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush in Lush Berry onto the apples of the cheeks and then after I powdered,  I used a touch of COVERGIRL Cheekers Blush in Classic Pink to brighten the face a bit more.  I like to combine cream and powder blush – just make sure you apply "like to like," so use the cream blush before you powder and the powder blush after the makeup is set.  

Eyes:

Next I focused on the brows.  I gave them a nice full look by adding a little to the shape with COVERGIRL Brow & Eyemakers Pencil in Midnight Brown.  The key to making it not look too heavy is to run a clean spooly through the brows after you fill in with pencil.  This softens the lines and blends the color in, making it undetectable.  Set the brows with a clear gel, brushing the hairs into the desired shape.

For the eyes, I started by sweeping COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer in Light Bronze over the lid, giving the eye a wash of warmth and a little depth, while still looking like her skin.  Then I took COVERGIRL Queen Collection Eyeliner in Black Onyx and drew a black line all along the upper lash line, pushing it into the lashes.  Taking a small synthetic brush, I smudged the line, softening the edge, making it less severe. I used a little black liner on the bottom as well, pushing it deep into the lashes so that when I applied NEW COVERGIRL LashBlast 24HR Mascara, the illusion  was thicker, darker lashes.

The eyes--soft liner and strong lashes--were the focus of the look, so the lips and cheeks were just meant to compliment them.  

Lips:

A soft pale, peachy lip achieved using COVERGIRL Queen Collection Lip Gloss in Starlet Sand, made Paula look radiant without distracting too much from the eyes, and the wash of warm pink on the cheeks gave her a fresh, healthy flush.

I gave Paula her lip gloss, a few cotton buds, and some blotting papers for her to take with her on the red carpet.  I wish I could be there to touch up my clients when they get to the red carpet, but once I leave them they are on their own.  The challenge is fitting all of those touch up supplies in those teeny tiny clutches!

Hair
 
Inspiration
 
“The Monique Lhuillier gown looked beautiful on Paula, very movie star,” explained Robert Steinken. “As a result, I envisioned a style with the sophisticated sexiness of Brigitte Bardot, but modern and sexy without looking retro. I also gave the hair a sleek, shiny and luminous look that was soft and full of movement.”
 
“I parted the hair at the center, added a bit of subtle volume at the crown, pulled the hair back close to the sides of the head, twisted it in back and let it flow down Paula’s back in soft, cascading waves.”
 
How the Look Was Created
 
“I started with damp hair and sprayed a small amount of new Moroccanoil Frizz Control throughout the hair to balance hydration and prevent frizz.”
 
“Next, I used one of my favorite products, Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream. It’s amazing to use because you don’t feel it in the hair and it gives a beautiful texture while softly holding a style and allowing it to move.”
 
“When I blow-dried hair, I used a round medium-size Moroccanoil Ionic Ceramic Brush. I especially like its design since it holds the heat and acts almost like a roller while you blowdry, giving a nice smooth wave to the hair.”
 
“Taking 2-3 inch sections, I let the brush to stay in the hair 10-15 seconds longer to allow it to cool and set the hair.
 
“Next, I used a 1” curling iron iron. starting at the root and wrapping the hair around the iron in a spiral. I held each section for 15-20 seconds, then removed and pinned the curl with a clip or bobby pin to let it cool.”
 
“I lightly sprayed the set with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray, unpinned, and brushed the curl out, then made a center part.”
 
“I then backcombed the hair at the crown for height, starting 3-4” inches from the hairline. To keep the backcomb in place and to style the hair more easily without losing volume, I sprayed it with Moroccanoil Luminious Hairspray.
 
“Finally, I sectioned hair behind the top of each ear and brought both sides together in the back with a twist, and pinned.
 
“I sprayed Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray on the style for hold. I love this hairspray because it allows movement. Hair can fall forward and move when Paula does. It kept the look very sexy, fluid and beautiful. It’s a unique product.
 
“I finished the style with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray for an extra touch of shine.

Get the Look: Jessica Biel at the 2012 Golden Globes.

 

Jessica Biel wore darker hair and beautiful makeup at the Golden Globes last night. Her makeup look was created by CHANEL Celebrity Makeup Artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua. Celebrity stylist Davy Newkirk used Alterna Professional Haircare to create Jessica Biel's red carpet hairstyle.

Makeup

Inspiration:
Kara’s inspiration for the look was Jessica's coloring and her white gown.  “I wanted to keep it simple and bright in the corals and neutral tones,” said Bua.

How-To:
“I started Jessica’s look by applying CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige-Sable to her face, setting it with CHANEL Natural Finished Pressed Powder in Natural, and adding CHANEL Powder Blush in In Love to the cheeks for a healthy glow.  I wanted to focus on popping the eyes with brown and taupe shades…I defined the eyes with the deep warm brown and taupe colors from the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Prelude, and applied the shimmery gold/champagne shades as highlights on the lid. I then added CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir on the top lashes and CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Brun on lower lashes for a more natural effect.  And finished the look with the fresh looking Rouge Coco Hydrating Crème Lip Colour in Paradis.  Healthy beautiful skin and warm corals on the cheeks and lips keeps the look so fresh!”

Hair

Overall Inspiration: “We wanted Jessica’s hair to compliment the ‘bohemian luxury’ feel of her dress. I loved the idea of natural cascading waves against the backdrop of the dress’ backless silhouette. The overall look evokes a relaxed vibe while still remaining polished and sophisticated.”
 
Hair—Prep: “Jessica has a great head of hair, the texture is fine but she has a ton of it! I added extra volume and lift at the roots while maintaining the feather light feel.“
·         Apply Alterna Bamboo Volume Weightless Whipped Mousse all over damp hair, and Alterna Bamboo Volume Uplifting Root Blast to the roots. Blow dry using a large round brush, this smoothes the cuticle to ensure a polished result.
·         When hair is 95% dry give strands texture and wave with Alterna Bamboo Style Boho Waves Touseled Texture Mist and then finish with a rough dry using your fingers.
 
Hair—Style: “While creating Jessica’s waves my goal was to keep the look youthful and modern.”
·         Divide hair into 1” sections and create waves using a 1¼” curling iron. Alternate between wrapping and clamping sections to maintain the organic movement to the look.
·         Apply Alterna Bamboo Style Moldable Texture Paste to hands and using your fingers comb through the curls, tousling the strands as you go.
 
 
Finishing Touches:
