Beauty Inspiration:
“When I spoke to Jen before the Oscars, we decided we wanted to create a look that exuded modern glamour. She had just returned from vacation, and she had that relaxed, glowing feeling, which we wanted to display on the red carpet. She is the quintessential California glamour girl, and she was radiant as always on Oscar night.”

Angela prepped Jennifer’s skin with Chanel Hydramax + Active Moisture Boost Cream. She then used a foundation brush to apply Chanel Lift Lumiere Firming and Smoothing Fluid Makeup in Beige all over the face. Under Jennifer’s eyes, Angela applied Chanel Lift Lumiere Smooth and Rejuvinating Eye Contour in Beige Lumiere. Instead of a traditional blush, Angela dabbed a bit of Chanel Hydrabase Lipstick in Coco Red on the apples of Jennifer’s cheeks. She then applied Chanel Sheer Brilliance in Sunkissed around the tops of her cheekbones, closer to the eye, for a bit of shimmer. Jennifer’s eyes were a combination of LORAC eye shadows in Jade, Black, and Serenity, and a Tina Earnshaw shadow in Aubergine. Her lashes looked extra glamorous thanks to Chanel Inimitable Mascara in Noir-Black. On Jennifer’s lips, Angela used Chanel Aqualumiere Lipshine in Panarea (available in April). To complete the look, she dusted Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzer.

For the 81st annual Academy Awards, nominee Amy Adams, walked the red carpet with makeup designed by CoverGirl Celebrity Makeup Artist Molly R. Stern. The inspiration was a cross between Talouse Latrec’s dancing girls and the watercolor feeling of a Gustav Klimt painting.

amy adams oscars 2009 dress Oscars 2009 Beauty: Amy Adams“First of all, I have to say I was the most excited I have ever been this morning. I couldn’t sleep a wink. I was dreaming about Amy’s makeup,” Molly said. “The day was amazing. My goal was to make sure that her makeup was saturated but not overdone. I wanted to give her a face without competing with the dress.”

“I started by prepping the face with Jurlique citrus spray to give the face a healthy lift then I gave Amy a light facial massage with La Mer moisturizing lotion. Next I based her face with YSL Perfect Touch #2. Then l blushed her cheeks with Chantecaille Aquablush in Frivolous as a peachy base with Chantecaille Sesame peach eyeshadow over top.”

“Her eyes are based with NARS cream eyeshadow in Maracaibo. Over that I blended Shu Uemura shadow in gray 960 mixed with Shu Uemura shadow in purple 700 all over the lid up into the crease. With a flat shadow brush I added a touch of NARS shadow in Ondine on the inside corner of her lid to give the eye a little gold hint. I lined the top and underneath of her eye with Trish McEvoy’s Arabian Nights Definer. To soften the line underneath, I added a soft smudge of Suqqu lavender shadow in #27. On her lashes, I put one soft coat of CoverGirl Exact Eyelights Mascara in Black Ruby.”

“On her lip, I based her lip with La Mer Lip Balm then applied a thin coat of Outlast Lipstain by CoverGirl in Plum Pout. Then a sheer layer of Shu Uemura wine lip color in 265 with a dot of CoverGirl Wetslicks AmazeMint in Plum Crazy at the center of her lip for a little extra pout. That’s also what she took in her bag for touch ups.”

Oscars 2009 Beauty: Heidi Klum

The inspiration behind Heidi Klum’s Oscar beauty look began with her Roland Mouret gown. The graphic silhouette and bold red color of the dress required a softer, natural face to compliment the design rather than compete with it.

heidi klum oscars 2009 dress Oscars 2009 Beauty: Heidi KlumMake-up artist Linda Hay wanted to bring out on Heidi’s dramatic eyes and also incorporate the powder pink color of the coral and diamond Lorraine Schwartz jewelry on the lips and cheeks. Linda sought to create a look that was light and dewy while still modern and sexy.

Eyes:
Linda began by lining the top and bottom lashes with Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Eyeliner in Dark Chocolate and highlighting the inside triangle of the eye with a shimmering nude eye shadow in Champagne. She then used the Victoria Secret Spring Look Eye Shadow Quad to highlight the eyes and make them pop. Using a large shadow brush, Hay applied Rich to the crease, Devoted to the eyelid and Champagne again as a highlighter under the brow and the inside corner of the eye. Using a smaller point shadow brush she blended a soft line under the eye from the outside corner to the tear duct. To finish, Linda applied three coats of Victoria’s Secret High Definition Mascara in Blackest Black.

Cheeks:
On the cheeks, Linda used the new Victoria’s Secret Highlighter/Blush Duo in Fresh to the apple of the cheek to create the allusion of more defined bone structure.

Lips:
Linda lined the lips with the Perfect Lipstick in Whisper followed by Victoria’s Secret Lip Gloss in Blush for subtle pink finish.

New York Fashion Week: Bodkin, Fall 2009

Posted on by daneen in Beauty Tips, Eco-friendly, Fashion, Fashion Week, Hair, Hair Styling | Leave a comment

bodkin New York Fashion Week: Bodkin, Fall 2009
On Monday, I traveled to The Horticultural Society in NYC to report from backstage at Bodkin, a still relatively green collection – designed in accordance with principles of sustainability in materials and production methods. For the Fall 2009 line, Bodkin found a natural partner in Aveda, a brand that strives to set an example for environmental leadership and responsibility – not just in the world of beauty, but around the world.

 New York Fashion Week: Bodkin, Fall 2009I had an opportunity to speak with John Reyman, lead hairstylist for Aveda, about the inspiration and seasonal trends.

“The idea was a little bed-heady…a little like a girl has been outside all day and her hair is a little wind-blown, but at the same time very healthy and very well taken care of. It looks shiny and it looks glossy, but it doesn’t look overworked or overdone. Like she cares but she doesn’t care too much – so kind of that balance. So the idea was we just put a very loose, loose wave in there with some Volumizing Tonic and then we finished it, actually, with the men’s grooming cream to give it a little bit of texture and some shine.”

For Fall 2009, John said, “A lot of people are putting ponytails in the hair. I think we’re really seeing cleaner hair. The last couple of seasons, we’ve seen really textured, really frizzy, really fuzzy hair…almost like the girl didn’t care at all. And I think as the economy sort of changes, people want to look and feel more put-together – and so the hairstyles are really reflecting that…a little cleaner, a little more refined.”

 New York Fashion Week: Bodkin, Fall 2009
Andrea Harrison, lead makeup artist for Aveda described the Bodkin Fall 2009 look as really simple and pretty. “She’s so naturally gorgeous. She really has been running around all day…with cold, flushed pretty cheeks. No powder on her skin. Just a very healthy, very natural kinda dewy skin. On the eyes, there’s a light, shimmer. You can really see the skin through it. It’s our Moonstone shimmer, and it’s nice and really smooth. Black mascara just on the top lashes. Just a polished brow which is just really lightly filled in…nothing that you would really look at and say, ‘Oh, that’s hard.’ And Berry Lip Tint on the lips, so it’s very fresh – again, like she’s just been running around. Just an easy look that anybody could duplicate quickly. It would be great for young girls, older, anybody.”

 New York Fashion Week: Bodkin, Fall 2009When asked about key trends for Fall 2009, Andrea said, “One thing that you’re seeing everywhere is that the models are all growing out their eyebrows. It seems like another popular trend is, instead of, a smoky eye and a dark lip – you just see one feature that they’ve picked to focus on. Whether it’s eyebrows or just cheeks or just mascara or just lips. So instead of having the full complicated look. So it would be great for everybody. Good for the average woman to pick their favorite feature.”

 New York Fashion Week: Bodkin, Fall 2009Before concluding the interview, I asked Andrea to name three Aveda products that every women should have in her beauty arsenal. “One thing is for certain when it comes to makeup…the key to good makeup is beautiful skin. So you always want to make sure that you’re using great skin products. I personally love our Tourmaline Charged Hydrating Creme. I use that on every model before a photo shoot or runway just because you can always add powder if you feel like it’s too much, but it really just makes the makeup go on beautifully. The other thing is mascara…to me, it can make a look that on it’s own. Sometimes you don’t need to anything else. And skin…I really see that being a trend. I love our Tinted Moisturizer; it’s got SPF 15 in it and it’s nice because you can still the skin underneath it. So anybody can wear it easily. Just make sure you match your skin tone. It’s nice and sheer, so everybody can find their skin tone easily.”

Kim Kardashian’s Favorite Hair Styling Cream

Posted on by daneen in Beauty Tips, Celebrities, Hair Styling | Leave a comment

kim kardashian grammy1 Kim Kardashians Favorite Hair Styling CreamWhat’s Kim Kardashain’s favorite styling cream? She loves Ojon Animated Styling Cream.

“It increases hair volume, adds separation and texture, boosts moisture and shine, and it’s non-greasy. I use it when my hair is down and I’m wearing a sleeker look. It’s also the perfect cream to use in a pony tail when you want it slicked back but not that oily-greasy look. You guys should try it!”
