Celebrity chef and Clairol Natural Instincts spokesperson Giada De Laurentiis celebrated the opening of her first restaurant “Giada” in Las Vegas earlier this week with her nearest and dearest. For the big night, Giada’s look was inspired by the art and colors threaded throughout her restaurant, designed to feel like you’re dining in Giada’s home.
Julie Morgan, celebrity makeup artist and longtime friend of Giada De Laurentiis, got her hair and makeup ready for the event. Here’s how:
Giada’s hair was freshly colored with Clairol Natural Instincts Amber Shimmer (a shade change for Giada) which gave her hair a gorgeous light golden-brown hue. For the evening, she opted for loose voluminous waves to complement her Italian and Californian roots. To achieve this look, follow the steps below:
1. Shampoo hair 24-48 hours after coloring hair for best results
2. Blow-dry hair and apply texturizing spray to roots for added volume
3. Take 1 inch barrel curling iron and twist sections of hair while leaving the ends of the hair out
4. Apply shine spray
5. Turn head over and move fingers through hair and spray a medium hold hairspray all-over to hold the curls in place, like Herbal Essences Naked Flexible Hold Spritzer
To complement Giada’s soft locks, Julie went with stone and jewel-tone Smoky Eye Liner by Trish McEvoy. Giada’s overall skin, cheeks and lips were done in a rose gold hue (Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation, Jouer Rose Blush with Sunshine Bronzer and Rose Lip Pencil with Peach Pearl Lip Enhancer). Her look was finished with COVERGIRL mascara.
Giada’s wardrobe was styled by Stylist Sam Saboura -- dress is by Cushnie et Ochs and shoes by Givenchy.
