Get The Look: Kiera Knightly or Marie Claire

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

I have always loved Kiera Knightly, and her old world beauty. I especially love her newest look, and was able to get the low down on how to recreate her hairstyle. 

For this month’s Marie Claire cover, Keira Knightly was styled by Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Fashion & Celebrity Stylist Ben Skervin.

THE LOOK: A roughed up, simplistic bed head style with soft, natural looking elements. The face framing layers and fresh look had a rock ‘n’ roll edge that complemented her cool and modern style. Here’s how Ben suggests getting this look:

1.      First start out by prepping wet hair with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Boost & Lift Foaming Air Mousse for lightweight volume.
2.      Rough dry hair, using fingers to give texture and make hair appear less finished.
3.      Part hair on the side. Then take a small amount of Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Color Gloss Crème and scrunch into the ends of the hair, creating soft waves and a textured finish.
4.      Finish the look with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Extra Firm Hold Hairspray to hold the style in place.

Bobbi Brown is one of the makeup lines that I often recommend to my clients, because of it’s simplicity and ease of use.  I have never found a color, or palette that doesn’t compliment the person in my chair, or make them feel beautiful (without feeling overly made up).  For this week’s New York Fashion Week, Bobbi Brown worked with her new celebrity face, Katie Holmes for her Holmes & Yang Fall Fashion Show.

The Perfect Pink Gloss

MAC Pro Longwear Lipglass

 I am always asked the same question, “what is the perfect shade of gloss for me?”.   It seems we are all on a never ending quest to find that fantastically flattering color that will make our lips luster.   I have to admit, I am always on the hunt for the perfect pink.  I have hundreds of lipsticks and glosses that are all within one or two shades darker or lighter than the other.  One has gold flecks, the other iridescent silver, and they all are so very close to that desired peachy pink perfection.  That color that will make my lips look ever so kissable and plump! 

So, what are the two best shades I have found?  They are both soft pink, with a hint of iridescence, and incredibly shiny.  I have used them on everyone, on every shoot imaginable, and they have never failed me.
