GTL: Keri Russell

28 Jan

Keri Russell - SAG 2019I loved the ease and wearability of Keri Russell‘s makeup at the SAG Awards last night in Los Angeles. Makeup artist Tamah Krinsky says the inspiration was “Modern day Grace Kelly… Classic with a little edge.”

The look was fresh and dewy skin with natural lips and a pop of color on her eyes. Easily replicable!

Below is a breakdown of the Lâncome products Krinsky used on Russell. GET THE LOOK…

SKIN: Russell’s skin was prepped with Absolue Precious Oil, then followed with Absolue Revitalizing & Brightening Rich Cream and Visionnaire Yeux. Finally a light layer of Prep & Hydrate Primer was applied to prime her skin for makeup.

FACE: Lancôme Skin Feels Good in 025 Soft Beige was applied with a soft brush and finger-tapped in to keep the look sheer. Blush Subtil in Cedar Rose was dabbed on the apples of her cheeks.

 

EYES: Brow Define Pencil in 06 Brown was used to lightly fill gabs in her brows. (Celebrities: Just like us!) The beautiful lavender and plum hues came from the Color Design 5 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in 300 Amethyst Glam. To soften to look, the base color from the Color Design 5 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in 500 Jade Fever was applied along her brow bone and in the crease of her eyes. Two coats of both Monsieur Big Waterproof Mascara and Definicils Mascara in Deep Black were applied on her top and bottom lashes. 

 

LIPS: Russell’s look was topped on with a few coats of L’Absolu Lacquer Gloss in 236 Pour Toujours. Simply beautiful!

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.”

The Beauty of Adele

12 Feb

adele-hair-makeup-2017-grammys

I’m a longtime Adele fan. But when she demanded a do-over LIVE on-air (and dropped a few F bombs!) at the Grammys, I completely fangirled out. She was not about to deliver anything but perfection for her friend George Michael.

Total respect.

And while I’m paying homage, I’ll bow down to Michael Ashton, too. He’s the artist we can credit for Adele’s glowing skin and signature cat eye tonight.

Before Ashton even applied color, he primed her face with Ole Henriksen skincare products. First he let a few dots of Ultimate Lift eye crème absorb under her eyes. Then he mixed a few pumps of Pure Truth Vitamin C Youth Activating Oil with a bit of Nurture Me crème and thoroughly worked it into her skin, blending outwards from the center of her face.

Ashton used the following Marc Jacobs Beauty products to create Adele’s gorgeous Grammy look.

FACE

  • Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut face primer (warmed up in hands first, then pressed into skin)
  • Genius Gel Super-charged oil-free foundation 26 bisque medium
  • Remedy concealer pen in 2 wake-up call (under eye, t-zone & high plane areas)
  • #instamarc Light Filtering Contour Powder in dream filter 20 (under cheek bones, around hair line)

BROWS

  • Brow Wow defining longwear eyebrow pencil in taupe 2 and ashbrown 4
  • Brow Tamer grooming gel

EYES

  • Twinkle Pop Stick eyeshadow in volver 402 (lid)
  • Style Eye Con no 7 plush eyeshadow palette in the lolita 206 (contours)
  • Magic Marc’er precision pen waterproof liquid eyeliner in blacquer (starting at inner corner and thickening as line extends outward to a fanned cat eye)
  • Velvet Noir major volume mascara (top and bottom lashes)

LIPS

  • Le Marc Liquid lip crème in slow burn 458 and fawn over me 452 (blot and clean up edges before applying second coat)

To set the look and give it extra vitamin-packed staying power, Ashton added a light mist of Ole Henriksen Nurture Me facial water to Adele’s entire face. And it worked. It ALL worked! Shop Ole Henriksen and Marc Jacobs Beauty on their respective sites or Sephora.

Congrats to Adele for 5 huge Grammy wins!

Next: I’m after what products are used on Bruno Mars. His skin always looks flawless. Or maybe he’s born with it…
