It's the middle of the summer so what better way to keep your summer look than to keep your makeup and hair light and fresh! Using inspiration from Judy's Jimmy Choo tomato red clutch, makeup artist Tamah uses a red lip to add to the pop of red. To balance the pop of color with the rest of the look, Tamah gave Judy a 'summer smokey eye' which gives the eyes definition while veering away from using the typical dark colors normally associated with the traditional smokey eye. With beautiful braided hair by hairstylist, Gregory Russell completing the look, Judy has given the summer look not only a new definition, but a perfect look for everyone to wear in just a few steps! Read below for the step by step to get Judy's look:

Hair Preparation. Start by dampening hair and blowing it out with an Ibiza round brush and applying Leonor Greyl Éclat Naturel to the ends of your hair.

The Braid. Next, part your hair down the center and pin up the crown section to braid last. French braid each side back and fasten the end of the braid with a clear elastic and braid the crown section (just a regular braid, not a French braid). Following the braid, pull out a few pieces around the face and loosen each of the braids and roughen them up a bit.

The Finishing Touch. After spraying more Kevin Murphy Resort Spray,  pin the side braids into two low buns and connect them with the crown braid. To complete the look, finish with Kerastase Laque Couture.

Eyes. Apply a thin layer of Benefit Creaseless Cream Eye Shadow in Flatter Me with a fluffy brush to keep it sheer. Next, use a touch of the top and bottom left shadows from the Dior 030 Incognito Eyeshadow Quad. Use the bottom right as a liner under the lower lash line. Apply Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in black directly to the upper lash line, and top it with Lancôme Hypnose Star Mascara in Black.

Cheeks. Use a touch of Make Up For Ever 033 Dark Antique Pink as a base, and top with Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Medium 2. Apply the bronzer with a medium sized fluffy brush (preferably one that is angled for bronzer).  Apply this to the cheeks and sweep it over the bridge of the nose, where the sun would naturally bronze.

Skin. Apply Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Foundation in 113 as foundation and concealer and use Laura Mercier Translucent Powder to set.

Lips. Use NYX Butter Lipstick in JuJu Amulette and MAC lip liner in Redd to set the lip line.

Get the Look: Becky G. at the 2014 Premios Juventud

Share on Twitter9 Share on Facebook1 Share on Pinterest0 Share on Google +11

Becky G
Makeup artist Jessica Smalls took Becky G's typically fresh and clean look and revamped it to a more grown up subtle look which is nothing less than sexy and glamorous. Read on to see how you can get Becky's new look:

Start with the eyebrows by brushing them into place with clear brow gel and begin heavily rimming the eyes with COVERGIRL Bombshell Intensity Liner in Pitch Black Passion. Once the line is dark and intense, apply a matte dark brown shadow to the lid, using a firm eye shadow brush. Once the dark brown shadow is applied, use Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Melted Caramel with a blending brush to blend the gold color into the matte brown. Using a clean blending brush, blend a soft tangerine color into the crease, to gradually fade and soften the brown smokey eye. Apply a wispy pair of false eyelashes and apply two coats of Clump Crusher Mascara and your eyes are done!

Moving on to the skin, hydrate your skin with oil free moisturizer and apply a thin layer of foundation primer. Let the primer settle for about a minute and using a dampened sponge, apply two layers of COVERGIRL Ready, Set Gorgeous Foundation in Natural Beige (205), waiting about 45 seconds between the first and second layers. Let the foundation cover what it can and then use Ready, Set Gorgeous Concealer in Fair (105/110) to cover dark spots and to brighten the are under the eye. Following the concealer, set your skin with truMAGIC The SunKisser on your temples, cheekbones and jawline to give your skin dimension. Finally, on the apples of your cheeks, apply Cheekers Blush in Pretty Peach (150) and sweep a loose shimmer powder over the entire cheek area and wa-la, your skin is ready to go!

Onto the final touch: Lips. Exfoliate your lips with a bit of granulated sugar and lip balm. Once your lips are soft and supple, use the remaining foundation off the sponge and apply it to your lips to rid your natural lip color. Using a lip brush, apply COVERGIRL LipPerfection in Heavenly (260) to your lips and top it off with Colorlicious Lip Gloss in Give me Guava (630).

And there you have it: a grown up look with a dash of sexy and glamorous! Click here to see Becky G's acoustic performance at Premios Juventud of her new hit single "Shower".

Get the Look

Getting tired of neutral makeup and looking to shake things up with an edgy and vibrant look? Inspired by the 1960s, makeup artist Jamie Greenberg worked with Kaley Cuoco for the Vera Wang store opening on Rodeo Drive to create a bold look. With blue eye makeup, dotted eyeliner, and rich black mascara, this look is one for the books.

Greenberg starts by lining mark’s No Place To Run Waterproof Eyeliner in Navy Seal along the top lash line and applying three dots along the lower lash line. On top, Greenberg layers mark’s On The Dot Eye Color Compact in Bold (middle blue shade) for a bolder finish. The eyes are completed by filling in the brows with Anastasia Brow Pro Palette and finishing with two coats of Jouer's Everyday Effortless Mascara in Noir.

To add an utterly flawless appearance, Greenberg applies Tom Ford Traceless Foundation all over the face and swirls together mark’s Island Beauty Face Compact on the cheeks for a coral, bronzy glow. To complete Kaley Cuoco's look, mark's All Butter Now Lip Treat in Bare All is used to even the look without taking away from the bold eye makeup.

Get the Look: Gabrielle Union at the Premiere of “Think Like A Man Too”

Share on Twitter7 Share on Facebook2 Share on Pinterest0 Share on Google +11

Screen Shot 2014-06-11 at 10.49.11 PM

Celebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles worked with Gabrielle Union for the Los Angeles premiere of “Think Like A Man Too" on Monday, June 9th. Please see below for Fiona's details on Gabrielle's gorgeous look!

"As we were getting ready, Gabrielle, her hairstylist and I talked about the look and the dress. When her hairstylist said he was going to do a tight bun with a deep side part, clean and sleek, and then I saw the two piece Dolce & Gabbana dress, I knew I wanted to do a red lip and soft eye on Gabrielle. Bronzy skin, a structured brow, and flirty lashes looked unfussy while still feeling incredibly elegant.

I used bronzer on the eyes instead of shadow, to create depth, and skipped liner, making the eye feel too made up. I wanted to keep the eye all about the lashes, and the look about beautiful skin and a statement lip. Using lashes on the top and bottom opened up her eyes, and the stronger brow balanced out the strong lip. Just a little bronzer on the cheeks gave definition without looking ‘blushy' . Even though there is a strong lip, for me, the look is all about radiant skin. It always starts with the skin.”

Using all Neutrogena makeup with the exception of NARS lipstick for the final touch, Gabrielle's look was flawless. Fiona used Neutrogena Mineral Powder in "Tan" for the foundation. Neutrogena Healthy Skin Bronzer in "Sunset Glow" was used for the eyes and cheek definition, and Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blush & Bronzer in "Raisin Glow" was used as blush for radiance. Neutrogena Healthy Volume in "Carbon Black" was the mascara used to open up Gabrielle's eyes , and NARS "Jungle Red" Lipliner was used to create the strong lip.

Get the Look: Shailene Woodley’s Flawless Look From The Fault In Our Stars Premiere

Share on Twitter4 Share on Facebook1 Share on Pinterest0 Share on Google +11

getthelookshailenewoodley

One of the most talked about love stories to hit theaters this year, The Fault In Our Stars, features one of the most talked about young starlets, 22 year-old Shailene Woodley. Last night she continued to shine in the spotlight at the NYC premiere in a canary yellow Ralph Lauren dress. Shailene’s go-to makeup artist, Roxy, kept in tone with the fresh, simple, classic style of her dress and kept in tone with Shailene’s love for organic products. Read on for details on the complete look and how she used the Physicians Formula Organic Wear Collection to get it.

INSPIRATION. "The simplicity of Shailene's gorgeous yellow dress really inspired me to create a makeup look on her that fit the same vibe: fresh, simple and classic. Keeping Shailene's skin dewy with a strong plum lip felt like the perfect accessory to her beautiful dress. What I love about her look is that through the simplicity of it all, it made a stunningly loud statement and those are always my favorite kind of looks to create. Less is truly always more," said Roxy, the makeup artist who created look.

Get the look with Roxy’s step-by-step:

Step 1: SKINCARE
The first step to this look was spraying Caudalie's Beauty Elixir Spray all over her face, neck and décolletage to revive, soothe and hydrate her skin. Next I applied 100% Pure Luminous Primer Vitamins & Reservatol to help me to get it all over her face evenly and fast. For her base, I applied Physicians Formula Organic Wear® CC Cream in Light/ Medium all over her face with my Chanel Foundation Brush #6. I started at the center of her face and blended out to her jaw line until it was seamless. This CC cream does a fantastic job at giving great coverage but keeping the complexion looking natural and fresh.

Step 2: POWDER
To keep her look a bit more sophisticated, I applied Koh Gen Go's Manfanshi Pressed Powder to give me the control I need in tight areas such as under eyes, around her nose and mouth.

Step 3: BRONZER
To bring out her earthy glow while giving some subtle definition to her cheek bones, I brushed on some Physicians Formula Gentle Wear 100% Natural Origin Bronzer with my Makeup Forever Double Sculpting brush under her cheek bones and over her temples.

Step 4: HIGHLIGHTER
Since glowing skin was a major part in her makeup look for the night, I applied Josie Maran's Argan Illuminzier down the bridge of her nose, around the outer corners and above her brows in a C shape manner.

Step 5: EYESHADOW PRIMER & EYELINER
Moving on to the eyes I started by applying Tarte's Clean-slate 360 creaseless 12-hour eyeshadow primer. For this look it was important for me to bring out her big beautiful eyes but with very minimal makeup. I skipped eyeshadow and went straight for Tarte's Skinny Smolder Eyes eyeliner in Golden Tiger Eye. I drew a thin tight line across her top lash line as well as the bottom corners then smudged it out softly using the sponge tip.

Step 6: MASCARA
Shailene loves to apply her own mascara and swiped on two coats of Physicians Formula Organic Wear® 100% Natural Origin CC Curl + Care Mascara. The mascara really brought everything on her eyes to life by curling, lengthening and defining her gorgeous lashes.

Step 7: BROWS
On her eyebrows I always keep them true to their color and shape by only brushing them with my Jane Iredale Delux Spoolie brush. We like the inner corners of her brows to be feathery and especially for this look so using that brush helped me gain that effect.

Step 8: LIPS
On her lips she applied Tarte's Glamazon 12-hour Lipstick in playful to her lips with her finger. We didn't want the lip color to look perfect in application but instead more lived-in and natural. It was the finishing touch to her sweet and stunning look.

Get The Look: Winona Ryder

Share on Twitter1 Share on Facebook0 Share on Pinterest0 Share on Google +11
winona

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"

SKIN:

  • 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.

EYES:

  • 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)
