Sofia Vergara 2012 Emmy Awards

Makeup:
Kayleen McAdams said, “The inspiration for Sofia’s look was chocolate and caramel! Chocolatey brown eyes, caramel colored lips. With a dress like hers, I wanted her makeup to look delicious and sexy.

I started by applying NatureLuxe Silk Foundation in Nutmeg #360 all over the face and blended into the neck.  I then used TruConceal #4 under the eyes, around the nose and on any spots where needed.  I finished with a light dusting of Clean Pressed Powder in Soft Honey and Cheekers Blush in Sierra Sands to set the base.  

On the eyes, I started by applying Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadow in Brown Smolder all over the lid and followed that with the Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner in Espresso just at the root of the lashes.  I also used Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner in Espresso on the bottom lashes and set that liner with Queen Collection 1-Kit Shadow in Copper Penny.  I applied three coats of LashBlast Volume Mascara on both the top and bottom lashes to lengthen and add volume.

Sofia and I wanted to do something different on her lips, so we chose a shade that she never used before – and we loved the change. I tried tons of different lipsticks on my arm! We looked them all over and tried three different shades before finding the perfect one. I wanted the lip to look like caramel, so I added a little gloss. I filled in Sofia’s lips with LipPerfection Lip Color in Captivate, and then went back over the edge of the lips with LipPerfection Lip Liner in Smoky to fill them out and keep her lipstick in place. I topped it all off with Queen Collection Lip Gloss in Sugar and Spice just in the center of the lips.

To keep Sofia’s look fresh all night, I gave her powder, lipstick, lip liner and gloss to keep in her purse. Sofia can’t live without LashBlast Volume Mascara, so I also keep my kit well stocked with extras.”
Hair:
Jen Atkin went for a glamorous look inspired by the texture of her Zuhair Murad dress. "I wanted the hair to flow with the dress so we chose a bombshell wavy look. Sofia is a sexy woman who can work a full volume look so we did a twist on a 60s style and made it modern by keeping it long with loose sexy waves and volume at the crown," said Atkin.

1. Always start with the right foundation. Begin by washing with Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy Volumizing Root Boost Shampoo and Conditioner to nourish the scalp and hair while also getting the volume and body from root to tip necessary to carry this style.

2. Use a volumizing mousse at the crown of the hair. Use a round brush to create volume and set the hair with velvet rollers.

3. Next, spray a texturizing spray throughout the rest of the hair and blowdry using a medium round brush for volume.

4. Once hair is dry, spritz an anti-humidity spray all over and brush through.

5. Use an 1 1/4" curling iron to set the hair. Wrap big sections of hair and curl up and away from the face.

6. Finally, comb the waves through with your fingers. Tease a little at the crown and finish off the look with a light spray of hairspray. If needed add a spray gloss to the ends.

Get the Look: Sofia Vergara at the Met Ball 2012.

 

Sofia Vergara stunned on the red carpet for the 2012 Met Ball. Makeup Artist Kayleen McAdams created her makeup look.

Sofia’s bright lip was inspired by the Marchesa collection (she wore a Marchesa dress) and we chose a grapey-pink hue since it’s one of Sofia’s favorite shades.
 
I first applied COVERGIRL NatueLuxe Silk Foundation in Nutmeg all over her face using a blender sponge.  I then used COVERGIRL TRUconceal Concealer in #4 just where we needed under the eyes and around the nose to keep the makeup sheer. To set the look, I used a big fluffy brush to apply COVERGIRL Clean Pressed Powder in Soft Honey and then used COVERGIRL Cheekers Blush in Plum Plush to complement her lips.
 
I wanted to create an eye on Sofia that’s lighter than usual. I applied COVERGIRL Queen Collection Vivid Impact Eyeliner in Truffle along the bottom lashes from the outer corners to the very inner corners and then applied a lighter line along the lash line at the top to create dimension. I applied COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadows in Swiss Chocolate on top of the liner on the lid to create a softer effect and then used COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadows in Mink along the brow bone. I used two coats of
COVERGIRL LashBlast 24HR Mascara in Very Black on the top and bottom lashes to finish the eyes.
 
I lined the lips first with COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipliner in Beloved and then filled them in with COVERGIRL Queen Collection Lip Color in Regal Raspberry using a lip brush to create dimension and contour the lips.
 
We knew we wanted to use a grapey-pink lip color to make Sofia’s lips stand out, but we had to play around with three different shades of purple before choosing the one she’s seen wearing. Since her look is all about the lips, I wanted to make sure the color stayed vibrant all night long so I gave her the COVERGIRL lip liner and lipstick to keep in her purse before she hit the red carpet.

Get the Look: Sofia Vergara at the 2012 SAG Awards.

 

Sofia Vergara dazzled in her hot pink dress and beautiful overall look at last nights SAG Awards. Makeup artist Kayleen Adams did her makeup using COVERGIRL products.

You'll see that Sofia's jewelry had purple tones, in both the bracelet and earrings so I wanted to subtly bring that out in the eye with a plum shadow.  To bring the whole look together, I used a mauve lipstick as it complemented the eye and also accented the jewelry.

How face products were applied:
I applied COVERGIRL TRUconceal Concealer #4 under the eyes and around the nose first, and then applied COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation in Nutmeg #360 using a sponge starting at the center of the face and then blending outwards. To set these creamy products, I used a good, fluffy brush and COVERGIRL Clean Pressed Powder in Soft Honey. To brighten the face, I applied COVERGIRL Cheekers Blush in Classic Pink along the cheekbones.
 
How eye products were applied:
I started with COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Brown Blaze at the outer corner of the upper lash line and all the way along the bottom.  I applied COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadows in Forever Fig over the entire lid starting at the outer corners and blending towards the center.  I then used COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadows in Brown Smolder at the outer corners and along the bottom lash line. I finished the eyes with two coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume Blasting Mascara in Very Black on both the top and bottom lashes.
 
How lip products were applied:
I started with COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipcolor in Eternal to fill in Sofia's entire lip. To add dimension to the lip, I used new COVERGIRL Blast Flipstick Lipcolor in Vixen in the center to give it a little shimmer.
 
Additional beauty prep:
-At the last minute, I decided to add a little more brown liner to the upper lash line to give it further depth.  Other than that the look was all set!
-I gave Sofia the lip products I used as well as a pressed powder to combat any potential shine throughout the night
-When I applied COVERGIRL Blast Flipstick Lipcolor, I started with a lighter pink but eventually decided to switch to a mauve shade. The COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipcolor in Eternal is one of our absolute favorites so I knew we wanted to use that one.
