Today, the talented Nick Barose shows us how to rock dramatic eyes and bold lips together like he did on his client Winona Ryder at this weeks The Iceman NYC premiere. "Normally there is a "rule" that if you're doing strong eyes, you can't do bold lips or vice versa.... but sometimes you can break the rule! Glamorous red lips alone can usually make you look too proper or too lady like so by adding some liner too it can make the look a bit edgier and less prim"
- On Winona I started by prepping her skin with sheer tinted moisturizer
- Then to keep skin from looking too matte, which would have been too retro with the red lips, I dusted sheer luminous powder on T Zone to cut down shine.
- For eyes, it's dark but more of an eyeliner look as opposed to a full on smoky eyes
- I simply just lined her upper and lower lash line using a long wearing chocolate brown pencil liner instead of black
- Line it along upper and lower lash line, try going in the inner rims to to make eyes pop more
- It'll add boldness to the eyes but not too smoky, just a sultry eyeliner look (try Armani Eyes To Kill waterproof eyeliner pencil in #2 )
- Then add just 2 coats of black mascara ( Benefit They're Real Mascara)
Jessica Biel and her delicious husband attended the Time 100 Gala, and she looked stunning with a simple bronzed eye, clean makeup and a nude lip. Jessica Biel’s hairstylist and make-up artist of the night share with us what went into Jessica’s classy look.“I thought giving her a sultry, warm-brown, smoky eye would look great with her Tom Ford dress,” dishes Beau Nelson. "The very on trend spring look of the moment is warm brown smoky eyes with orange cheeks."
MAKEUP: Nelson used Burberry blush in Tangerine to warm up Jessica’s olive complexion. Nelson used brands from CHANEL, Tom Ford, to MAC and even L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara. The product range in price point is quite impressive. All of these different beauty products working together to create a naturally elegant look for Jessica Biel.
HAIR: Anthony Campbell is responsible to Jessica’s hairstyle for this evening. Using hairspray, thickening spray, beach spray and a one and a half inch curling iron to create a Brigitte Bardot inspired hairstyle. Anthony kept the bangs apart and pulled the front hair strands back to open Jessica’s face and neck.
Bridget Bardot Beauty Breakdown by Sian Bitner-Kearney
Since near birth, I have been obsessed with Brigitte Bardot. She is without a doubt my style icon and any dear friend would verify my countless attempts to be beach blonde (some less successful than others), my desperate need to perfect the cat eye look, and the lips… I should be an expert on the nude lip at this point of my life! The amalgamation of big, defined eyes, bronzed glowing skin, and near naked lips is classically beautiful, not to mention the perfect look for a mid-summer night! This look screams sexy while still appearing effortless and natural. Pair this look with an up do, ala Brigitte Bardot, and you have the recipe for dazzling!
- The thing to remember when attempting this beach beautiful look, is to focus on the eyes and the skin.
- Skin should be well hydrated before applying any bronzer, and using a BB Crème instead of a heavy foundation will give you ample coverage while still creating a natural glow.
- Create your smoky brown eye with a light layer of taupe shadow all over the lid followed by a deep shade of brown through the crease area.
- Begin lining the top of the lid, as close as possible to the lashes, with a black cake or gel liner and ever so slightly, winging it out at the corner.
- Next, lightly line the bottom waterline and top with several coats of lengthening mascara.
- Finish off the look with a touch of nude lip gloss, and your glammed up and ready to go!

I have always loved the simplicity of a low bun. When I am strapped for time, or just not feeling up to waging a war with my hair, I opt for the quick and simple remedy of pulling my hair back. So, you can imagine my thrill when I heard that the bun is making a red carpet come back. Here is the styling how-to for Rachel Weisz’s hair look at the Oz The Great and Powerful world premiere in LA. She was elegantly styled by Ben Skervin using Vidal Sassoon Pro Series (@VidalSassoon) hair products. Get the look below (and you can bet I will be copying this!).The Look: Sleek Low Bun
Rachel and Ben chose to do a super-sleek and shiny take on a low bun. This stunning look paired with her fitted Victoria Beckham dress created a modern, sexy look that really popped as Rachel walked down Oz’s yellow brick road.
Here’s how Ben created Rachel’s look:
1. Mist hair with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Heat Protect & Shine Spray before blowing hair out with a large round brush to ensure the hair is smooth.
At the Oscars, Jennifer Aniston rocked a stunning red dress, and kept her signature boho hairstyle down and flowing. Her go to hair guy Chris McMillian provides the details below. Personally, I would have loved to see something different on her (maybe an updo? curls?). Regardless, I do respect someone who knows their style and comfort zone and doesn’t bow down to trends.
I adore Helen Mirren. I want to be as stunningly ferocious when I grow up. To me, she is just so ridiculously cool, calm, sexy, and all around great. I was able to get my hands on her red carpet look for the Hitchcock New York Premiere. I think she looked stunning, confident, and amazing. Enjoy!

HAIR: Jonathan Hanousek – Hair:
“Helen’s Dolce & Gabbana gold embroidered dress was very ornate so I really needed to keep the hair chic, sleek and simple. Keeping the hair off her face kept the look clean and modern”
I started with Bumble and Bumble Styling Lotion on damp hair and blew the hair back using a medium round brush to create some volume throughout the top of the head.
Next I sprayed TIGI Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Conditioner through out the hair to give it a bit of a next day vibe.
Then using a flatiron I pressed the hair behind the ears and below her occipital so it would lay flat.
Next I took a dime size dollop of Davines Nº5 Mat Pliable Stucco For Wizards and worked it in my hands raking it though the hair to create separation and to anchor the hair behind her ears.
To prevent the look from becoming a pompadour, I directed the hair into an irregular side part.
Once the shape was in place I secured everything with Kerastase Double Force finishing hairspray.
The final look felt fresh and easy and complimented Helen’s elaborate dress.
Last night at the American Music Awards, the stars knocked it out of the park with their red carpet beauty and killer performances. But, as always, the nights best performance belongs to Pink. She embodies such passion, strength, and tremendous talent. Last year she brought the house down with her rendition of “Glitter in the Air”, and this year she gave me goosbumps with her contemporary dance to “Try”. She takes my breath away. Here is her beauty breakdown by her makeup artist Kathy Jeung.
GET THE LOOK:
“P!NK’s beautiful bronze leather and chiffon dress was modern and strong, yet feminine, so we wanted to do a makeup that reflected that, a simple, paired down but glowing, glamorous beauty look. We’ve been doing a lot of smokey eyed looks lately, so thought we’d mix it up and do a look that felt a bit like old Hollywood glamour, but in a modern way, with focus on the eyes, especially the lash line and lashes.”
