GTL: Beyoncé’s September Vogue Cover

20 Aug

unnamedI don’t write many Get-the-Look posts because to me it’s better to find your own. Kim & Kylie have honed their looks and they work fabulously for them… but I’m beyond tired of all the clones. Really tired of them. Only one blogger’s opinion though.

In any case, I’m making an exception today. When I find a legit beauty tip about getting a glow like Beyoncé or J.Lo, you will read it here.

Have you seen Beyoncé’s September Vogue cover? Her face is natural. Her makeup doesn’t pull focus from the huge fashion issue. It’s all her. It’s gorgeous. Beyoncé’s makeup was done by Sir John using mostly Marc Jacobs Beauty products.

The goal was to create an ethereal glow. We know Beyoncé loves that no-makeup makeup look. And while heredity can play a big part here, a glow is a relatively easy thing to fake.

“She’s all about being confident in your skin and owning your natural element. This look was all about redefining glamorous as a state of mind. We focused on enhancing her natural brows, skin and structure – and bringing out that inner glow.”

– Sir John, on Beyoncé

 

SIR JOHN’S TIPS TO GET-THE-LOOK

  • Prep skin using Marc Jacobs Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer 
  • Apply foundation on wet, moisturized skin
  • For her lit-from-within glow, use a bronzey, rose-gold finish with a 2-part highlight
    • First, he apply Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter in Fantasy to the basic highpoints of your face
    • Second, use foundation slightly darker than your complexion and mix it with the same Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter to get a 3D cheek
  • To set the look, use Finish-Line Perfecting Coconut Setting Powder to create a lasting soft-matte finish

PRO TIP: “Always avoid shimmer on the front of the face. Apply it to your angles for sexiness.”

Met Gala Beauty: Emma Roberts

2 May

 

"Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art Of The In-Between" Costume Institute Gala - ArrivalsLast night was what many of us refer to as the Fashion Event of the Year in NYC: The Met Gala. This year’s Costume Institute theme was “Rei Kawakubo/ Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between.”

Red was fittingly a big trend of the evening, but my favorite was Emma Roberts.

Emma stunned in classic Hollywood glam. Her lollipop red satin Diane von Furstenberg gown stood out with a sleek corset bodice, peek-a-boo lace, and hot pink fur boa. While her hair hung long with an “un-styled” style, her makeup was a mix of vibrant and smoky color.

Makeup artist (and the woman behind her namesake brand) Charlotte Tilbury described Emma’s Met Ball look as, “a dreamy, lit-from-within glow on flawless, pore-less contoured skin, soft, rose-gold metallics on the eyes to make them look bigger and brighter, and sumptuous, fuller, wider Pillow Talk supermodel natural lips.”

Below are some of the key steps and CT products Charlotte used to create Emma’s look:
