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: COVERGIRL Janelle Monae at Essence Music Festival

Share on Twitter5 Share on Facebook0 Share on Pinterest0 Share on Google +11

Get the Look: Simple, Yet DefinedMixing black and white has always been chic... But adding a signature red lip? Now that's a beautiful look that is simple, yet defined.

COVERGIRL's Janelle Monae has always been known for wearing the classic black and white's with her signature red lip and to make her glow at the Essence Music Festival, the focus was all on her skin, lashes and lips. Find out how to get Janelle's signature look below in three simple steps!

Step 1: Face. Use two shades of truBLEND Liquid Foundation – one to highlight the under eye area and the other to match your complexion! There is no need to finish with powder because truBLEND dries down to a powdery finish.

To add an extra glow, apply Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer to the outer perimeter of the face (forehead, cheeks, etc.), to provide dimension, contour and a soft, subtle glow.

Step 2: Eyes. Using Bombshell Intensity Liner in black, draw a thick line that wings out to elongate the eye, and top it off by adding false lashes and a few coats of Clump Crusher by LashBlast mascara to both top and bottom lashes. 

Step 3: Lips. To get Janelle’s classic signature red lip, first apply LiPerfection Lipcolor in Hot, then smudge a dab of Colorlicious Lipgloss in Sweet Strawberry for dimension and shine.

Celebrity hairstylist Kylee Heath worked with Diane Kruger for the premiere of FX’s “The Bridge” on Monday, July 7th. The look was an intense, and gorgeous take on a braided updo. Perfect for summer nights!  


  • First, I sprayed Leonor Greyl Spray Structure Naturelle from roots through ends and rough dried the hair, blowing it in all directions.
  • Then, I created a part from the top of left ear, straight over the head, to the top of the right ear.
  • I broke the section into two, creating a center part and clipped away both sections.
  • Starting at the back of the center part, I then created two partings creating a triangle section in the back.
  • The left over hair on either side of the triangle was also then clipped away leaving only the triangle section unclipped.
  • I did an inside out French braid (cornrow) on the triangle section and secured at the base of the neck with a clear rubber band.
  • Next, I took down the clipped away sections.
  • I gave the roots a light tease for volume, lightly pulled them back and created a loose French braid (over the top of the triangle sectioned cornrow).
  • Braiding the hair until only about 2 1/2 in was left, I secured with a clear rubber band and lightly loosened up the braid.
  • I finished the look with Kevin Murphy Strong Hold Hairspray  and Kevin Murphy Easy Rider .

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


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:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
