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.”

Red Carpet Hair Obsession: Beyonce

Not only did Beyoncé kick off the show with one of the hottest performances of the evening, but her carefree wavy bob definitely had us drunk in love with her look for the rest of the night!

Pantene celebrity stylist Kim Kimble styled Bey for the evening, and shared with us the steps below so you too can achieve this style too!

Beyonce At The 56th Annual Grammy Awards

1. For a show-stopping wet, sexy look inspired by the 1920’s, start with clean, wet hair.

2. Next, work the Pantene Pro-V Curly No Crunch Curls Whip into hair from root to tip to define frizz-free curls. Then brush through with a paddle brush to create soft, piece-y waves, and scrunch hair to help keep its definition.

3. Spritz the Pantene Advanced+ Keratin Repair KeraGloss Oil Mist to add brilliant shine.

4. To go from sexy to modern ‘20s chic, dry hair with a diffuser. Point the diffuser toward your crown to keep hair smooth at the root and use underneath at the ends of hair to achieve volume.

5. Continue to scrunch hair until dry for added body. Use a 1/2 inch flat iron and wrap small pieces of hair around it to create additional soft waves, similar to a curling wand, to create a few additional waves.

6. Tame flyaways at the roots of hair by using the Pantene Pro-V Stylers Shaping Hairspray. It’s important this style looks messy and flawless, so a small amount of product at the crown is all you need.

7. Finish off the look with the Pantene Advanced+ Keratin Repair KeraGloss Oil Mist for shiny, effortless waves.

Red Carpet Glam: Queen Latifah

Congratulations to COVERGIRL Queen Latifah for winning ‘Best New TV Show Host’ at tonight’s annual People’s Choice Awards on CBS! Queen Latifah was glammed by makeup artist and COVERGIRL ambassador Sam Fine and her fashion look was styled by Tim Snell. We asked Sam Fine to spill his tips for getting Queen looking gorgeous!

Queen

How-To Get The Look by COVERGIRL Ambassador Sam Fine

Inspiration & Fashion:

Most often the clothes dictate the look; however, once Tim Snell (Latifah’s longtime fashion stylist) revealed his version of the LBD, Latifah immediately requested a simple eye, glowing skin, and a striking lip instead of our favorite smoky eye/pale lip combination. So, when the Queen makes a request… I aim to please!

FACE: Every look begins with great skin - beautiful coverage and a gorgeous glow!

1. I always begin using truBLEND Fixstick concealer one shade lighter than her complexion.

2. It’s perfect to highlight the under eye area, the bridge of the nose and chin (areas where the light naturally hits the face).

3. After, I use a synthetic foundation brush to gently apply truBLEND Liquid Makeup to unify varied tones.

4. I used Queen Collection Lasting Matte Pressed Powder to set underneath the eyes and the center of the face, then applied my favorite bronzer, Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer, near the outer perimeter of the face for glowing results.

5. Tip: I often use two shades of bronzer – one that matches her skin tone, which takes the place of blush, and a deeper shade – to contour and warm her complexion.

 

EYES: A simple, clean eye doesn’t mean that I don’t use eye shadow; it means I used natural looking shades to enhance the shape of her almond eyes.

1. Using a large brush, I swept the eye with Queen Collection Eyeshadow Pot in Dazzle (Q185) to add warmth, richness and a touch of shimmer to the eye area.

2. Then, I applied Vivid Impact Eyeliner in Midnight (300) closest to the lashline, extending it at the outer corner to lift the eye.

3. Lastly, I applied individual lashes and few coats of Bombshell Volume Mascara in Very Black (800) for volume and intensity. (#bombshelling)

 

LIPS: Now, the fun part… a dramatic lip!

1. I always begin with liner to shape the lip and insure a long – lasting finish throughout the night.

2. I applied LipPerfection Lipliner in Beloved (225).

3. Using a lip brush for added precision, I applied Queen Collection Lip Color in Burgendelicious (Q410) for an effortless, yet glamorous finish!

zoe saldana 1Step 1 – Prep
