Red Carpet Beauty How-To: Kate Mara

Celebrity makeup artist Coleen Campbell-Olwell used Orlane products to create Kate Mara’s stunning look for the red carpet premiere of ‘Transcendence’ and gave us the beauty breakdown.
 
“For Kate’s look tonight, she’s wearing a gorgeous, gold Valentino dress with swept-up hair, so we decided to do bold and metallic shadows on her eyes with a pop of color and luminous, radiant skin.
Since the weather in LA is so warm and dry, I started by massaging in Orlane’s Super-Moisturizing Light Cream for extra hydration.  This product is a staple in my kit!  It really preps the skin so that the foundation goes on smoothly.
 
I then dabbed on Orlane’s Absolute Skin Recovery Eye Contour under her eyes.  Next, I mixed two drops of the Morning Recovery Concentrate into Chanel’s Vitalumiere Foundation for extra luminosity and applied it with a dampened Beauty Blender.
 
For extra definition, I contoured under her cheekbones with a medium-sized fluffy brush and Orlane’s Bronzer in Soleil Cuivre 02.  This bronzer is perfect for contouring because it is matte and looks so natural.  Then, to add a hint of peach to the apples of her cheeks, I swirled on Dior’s Blush in Amber Show.
 
On Kate’s eyes, I applied metallic and gold shadows and used a purple accent for a pop of color.  I decided to forgo false lashes and instead lined her top lash line with Antonym’s Certified Natural Eye Pencil in Noir.  To add density to her lashes, I took a small, dense shadow brush and smudged it in.  Then, I applied two coats of Orlane’s Volume Care Mascara.  I LOVE this mascara as it creates such long, lush lashes
 
I love Kate’s lip color, so we went au natural and just applied a balm on top to keep them hydrated.
 
To finish off the look, I used Orlane’s Highlight Care Brush to add extra glow to the top of her cheekbones, the inside corner of her eyes, and the top of her lip line. Lastly, I dusted Orlane’s Translucent Loose Powder on her t-zone.”

Red Carpet Beauty: Emily VanCamp At The Premiere Of Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Emily VanCamp Votre Vu Captain America The Winter Soldier Red CarpetCelebrity makeup artist Rosie Johnston is the artist behind this beauty look! For Emily’s look, Rosie took inspiration from her dress which was a short Monique Lhuillier number with long sleeves.  “It’s very sexy, but very demure and classic at the same time.”  Rosie and Emily wanted to do something that was sleek, modern, yet sophisticated.

The look for tonight really focused Emily’s eyes.  “We went for a not so traditional smokey eye paired with really nude lips.  To start, Rosie began by applying Votre Vu’s Champagne Kisses to Emily’s lips to prep them for the lipstick later on.  The lip balm is infused with Vitamin E and champagne grape seed oil so it intensely moisturizes the lips and creates a great base for lipstick.  Rosie kept Emily’s skin looking super fresh and clean using a combination of Kevyn Aucoin and Chanel foundations.  To add a subtle flush to her cheeks, Rosie used Votre Vu’s Vu-On Rouge in Bouquet Rose and applied it using a foundation brush on the apples of her cheeks and blending up a little.

To prep the eyes and make the colors pop, Rosie first applied Votre Vu’s Lingerie Pour Les Yeux in Light all over Emily’s lids.  Then she went in with the nude-bronze shade from the Palette Play in Copper and swept that all over the lid.  Focusing next on the eyeliner, Rosie took the Le Joli Crayon in Charbon and lined her eyes with it.  To smoke out the liner, Rosie then took the deep violet and black shades from the Palette Play in Violette and blended out the liner using a flat, wide eye shadow brush.  “The eye shadow palette is amazing; the colors are so gorgeous and really created the look we were going for.”  To finish off the eyes, Rosie applied lots of individual lashes and then three coats of Votre Vu’s Eiffel Power to give volume and length.

For her brows, using Arch de Triumphe in Warm and an angled brush, Rosie filled in Emily’s brows, combed them out, and then filled them in again, repeating this step 3 times for a “natural, yet defined look.”

“We always try to keep Emily’s look soft and sexy, but with a little bit of edge.”

“American Hustle’s” Sizzling Dress Steps Off the Screen and Into Hollywood Costume Exhibition

AME100BENever before seen outside the movie studio, Rosalyn Rosenfield’s (Jennifer Lawrence) shimmering white dress and Irving Rosenfield’s (Christian Bale) velvet suit, both designed by Oscar®-nominated Michael Wilkinson for “American Hustle,” are set to open the internationalHollywood Costume exhibition at Phoenix Art Museum, March 26.

Curated by eminent costume designer and historian Dr. Deborah Nadoolman Landis, the show features more than 100 of Hollywood’s most iconic costumes including Dorothy’s (Judy Garland) blue-and-white gingham pinafore from “The Wizard of Oz,” Indiana Jones’ (Harrison Ford) leather jacket from “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” and Marilyn Monroe’s billowing white dress from “The Seven Year Itch.” Much more than a display of costumes, the exhibit combines multimedia elements including interviews with actors, costume designers, and filmmakers, animation and clip montages, to fully explore the role that costume design plays in cinema storytelling and the contribution that costume designers make to every production.

AME100BFAnother new addition to the already expansive collection is Darth Vader’s (David Prowse) menacing black suit and cape from “Star Wars,” designed by John Mollo. The rarely seen costume appeared in the London debut of Hollywood Costume, but has not yet been seen as part of the exhibition in the United States. Darth Vader is paired in the show with “Ming the Merciless” (Charles Middleton) from the 1930’s “Flash Gordon” serials and together, they represent the two evil rulers of the universe.

Phoenix Art Museum is the final scheduled stop and one of only two U.S. museums to host the V&A exhibit. Once the show closes July 6, costumes will be returned to studio archives and an international array of private collectors, making it the last opportunity to see one of the largest collections of Hollywood costumes ever assembled. Five years in the making, Hollywood Costume is the greatest exhibition on the collaborative art of filmmaking ever mounted.

Hollywood Costume at Phoenix Art Museum is a ticketed event and is anticipated to sell out. Visitors are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance:phxart.org/hollywoodtickets

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Beauty Looks Created by @CoverGirl

I was lucky enough to be invited to s very special screening of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. IDK about you but after the first installation I’ve been obsessed (Katniss Everdeen braid (with mixed success) for weeks.

Covergirl-Hunger-Games-Catching-Fire-Fishing-District

So when CoverGirl launched beauty looks inspired by the film (hitting theaters today) it
was like they read our minds. CoverGirl launched perfect looks inspired by Panem’s District beauties (yes, Katniss Everdeen too).

Inspired by each region’s strength — Luxury, Masonry, Technology, Fishing, Power, Transportation, Lumber, Textile, Grain, Livestock, Agriculture and Mining — the bright and gilded palettes may not be the best camouflage in the forest but they’ll certainly make an impression on the Gamemakers in the big arena.

Get the Look: Lily Collins at the Premiere of The Mortal Instrument: City of Bones

Not sure about you but we’re excited to see The Mortal Instrument: City of Bones. There was a touch of girl-crush when we spotted Lily Collins, at the Los Angeles premiere, in this amazing white leather number by Cushnie et Ochs. We adore the sleekness of the dress and her hair! So much so, that we asked celebrity hairstylist Mara Roszak, who styled Lily Collins, how to create the gorgeous slicked back look on Lily.

image001

“Lily wore an incredible leather structured dress by Cushnie et Ochs.  I knew I wanted the hair to have a graphic feel with lots of shine.
I started by sectioning her hair deep to the side and then applied Leonor Greyl Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice to Lily’s damp hair and blew it dry straight.  For an extra straight look, I flat ironed each section straight down with no bend.
To tame any fly aways and add extra smoothness and shine, I used Leonor Greyl Éclat Naturel all over.  I did not use it sparingly!  I first put the product in my hands and rubbed it in before applying it from the bottom up.
Next, I used Leonor Greyl Gel a l’Hibiscus to slick back the sides of Lily’s hair and pinned it in the back, leaving the back section down.
To finish the look and ensure it lasted all night, I sprayed Leonor Greyl Spray Structure Naturelle all over the head.”

Are you as excited as we are? Check out the trailer below.

But as he starts to adjust to his role as a suburban family man, an ultra­secret organization dedicated to fighting evil around the globe comes knocking. 

Now, it’s up to Gru and his new partner, Lucy Wilde (KRISTEN WIIG of Bridesmaids, TV’s Saturday Night Live), to discover who is responsible for a spectacular crime and bring him to justice. After all, it takes the world’s greatest ex­villain to catch the one vying to take his place…
