Celebrity Concealer Beauty Tips

Tackle Eye Beauty Issues With Celebrity Tricks

From under eye circles to lashes that just won’t behave, I constantly find myself tackling beauty disasters thanks to my baby blues. Since your eyes are usually the first thing people notice, you want them to look great. Take these simple tricks celebrity makeup artists use to ensure red carpet nights aren’t a disaster.

Double Conceal

Taylor Swift may not seem like she has under eye circles and for good reason. She uses the double conceal technique. Start with a concealer shade the same color as your skin tone to cover the darker tones of the circles. Next, apply a lighter shade under eyes and out across your cheekbones to brighten your eyes.

Boost Tired Eyes

I used to dread how my eyes would look after a few nights of little sleep. Now I regularly use a popular celebrity secret – topical Vitamin C. Massage it directly under your eyes or use an eye cream with Vitamin C. It actually helps repair the damage to reduce the look of bags and circles.

Stubborn Lashes

Andrew Sotomayor, a celebrity makeup artist, helps celebrities tackle their eyelashes to look stunning and more awake. Curl your lashes upwards to make them look longer and open the eyes. You’ll look alert and beautiful, especially when you add a little mascara.

Katey Segal Beauty

Since last week was all about the finale of Sons of Anarchy, what better way to kick off the week, than with the beautiful Katey Segal. 

Katey always likes to keep her look fresh, so I use shadows instead of hard liners on her eyes for a soft focus look! -celebrity makeup artist Coleen Campbell-Olwell”




  • To create a softer version of a smokey eye I used warm neutral shadows, starting with Nars shadow in Fez along her lid and under the eye then I tap on Nars Bengali along the top lash line and working it up at the outer corner for a little dimension.
  • I like to line the upper waterline with Chanel Eye Pencil in Ambre, it makes the lashes look more dense.
  • I then defined her brows with my favorite Brow Pencil, Diorshow Brow Styler in Universal Brown and lengthened her lashes by swiping on two coats of Makeup For Ever Smokey Lash Mascara in Black and I added a few single lashes.

Get The Look: Melissa Carache

Share on Twitter3 Share on Facebook2 Share on Pinterest0 Share on Google +11


Celebrity Makeup Artist Elle Leary shares with us how she gave Melissa Carache her elegant evening look: “Melissa and I went for a very classic Greek Goddess meets Girl Next Door, look for this event!” 



  • For the rest of the makeup application I wanted it to be fresh, so I started with TARTE’s Amazonian clay waterproof cream eyeshadow in Seashell Pink from lash line to just above the crease to give a little sheen and play with some color.
  • Then I worked TARTE’s skinny smolderEYES™ Amazonian clay waterproof liner in Golden Tiger’s eye along the lash line and smudged it up and out to the corner of the outter eye.
  • Finally I took my Epic Black Mousse Liner from NYX and gave her an extended and exaggerated signature smokey cat eye.
  • Couple coats of mascara and a set of my favorite lashes by Velour in Doll Me Up, the eyes were complete!!


To really take this look home, I finished off with another goody from NYX, their Chunky Dunk Hydrating Lippie in Watermelon Cooler. I can not get enough of these chunky pencils, perfect for that hint of playful color. “

Get The Look: Christina Hendricks

Share on Twitter0 Share on Facebook0 Share on Pinterest0 Share on Google +11

Christina Hendricks…Driving Men Mad! by Sian Bitner Kearney:

While the world of Hollywood is full of beautiful women, there are few that personify class, confidence, and well… sex the way that Christina Hendricks does. This fiery redhead lights up the screen on AMC’s Mad Men as the hard headed and hard to ignore Joan Holloway (Harris). While Hendricks’ voluptuous curves keep men all around the world glued to the television, it’s Christina’s glowing complexion and vintage glamour that keeps us ladies wanting more. Want to drive your own man mad? Here’s how to create a look that’s totally Joan approved!


  • As always, begin with clean, moisturized skin.
  • Next, skip the heavy, complexion clouding foundation and opt for a BB Crème.
  • If you’re like Christina and are among the “fairest of all”, go for a BB Crème with sun protection built in like Christian Dior’s DIORSNOW UV Protection BB Crème.
  • Next, apply a light dusting of blush to the apples of the cheeks in a coral shade. Coral is less harsh on fair skin tones than a red blush but still gives skin that old Hollywood glow. We love Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in the shade Candy Coral. 


  • Now on to the eyes. Because the lips are Christina’s boldest and brightest feature, the eyes need to be a bit simpler.
  • For this look, skip eye shadow and smoky liner. Simply apply a liquid liner like Smashbox’s Limitless Liquid Liner pen to the upper lash line only.
  • Stay as close to the lash line as possible and wing the liner out ever so slightly at the corners.
  • Next, apply several coats of volumizing mascara like Lancome’s Hypnose Drama mascara, to the upper lashes only.  


  • Now on to the drama! This look is all about those big, bold, and beautiful red carpet lips.
  • If you have a tendency toward dryness, begin by exfoliating the lips and applying a balm.
  • Next, pick a bright shade of red, we love Clarins’ Joli Rouge Lipstick, apply to lips with a lip brush or directly from the tube, and you’re red carpet ready. Simple, sophisticated, and oh so sexy!
