SAG Awards Beauty: America Ferrera

america+ferrera+sag+2009 SAG Awards Beauty: America Ferrera
This year at the 15th Annual SAG Awards, America Ferrera’s makeup was inspired by her Vera Wang beige chiffon gown. Makeup artist Linda Hay wanted America’s makeup to have a fresh and romantic feel, yet very modern to compliment the gentle nature of her dreamy gown – so she decided on a very simple eye, a peachy cheek and a deep red lip.

Linda began creating her look by lightly evening out America’s complexion using YSL’s Touche Eclat where necessary, around the eyes, the nose and the corners of the mouth, followed by a light dusting of powder. She then applied Shu Uemura’s “Peche” directly to the apple of the cheek for a fresh, youthful look.

For the eyes, she drew a fine line on the top eyelid with Jouer Eye Definer in Mure. Using a large flat eye brush, Linda gently swept a shimmering white shadow from Cle de Peau #14 Eye Color Quad, across the entire lid, up and into the brow. With a smaller pointed eye brush she lined the silver shadow from the same palette to the bottom lid and from the inside corner to the outside corner of the eye. The inside of the eye was lined with Jouer Eye Clarifier in Clair. Finally, Linda applied three generous coats of Chanel mascara to both top and bottom lashes. The brow was strong and well defined using Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Kit. On the Lips, Linda used MAC Viva Glam Lipstick.

On her blog, Kim Kardashian answers some beauty-related fan mail. When asked about the curling iron she used to create her inauguration night look (see above), Kim responded:

I use Hot Tools curling irons. They have a bunch of different sizes. If you want smaller, tighter curls, go with a smaller iron. If you want bigger, sexy curls, go with a larger one! Since your hair is so long, I’d suggest you use their 2-inch model for bigger waves! Happy hairstyling!

SAG Awards Beauty: Kate Winslet

kate winslet sag awards 2009 SAG Awards Beauty: Kate Winslet
This year at the 15th Annual SAG Awards, Best Supporting Actress winner Kate Winslet accessorized her gorgeous Narciso Rodriguez gown and dazzling Chopard jewels with a little help from Fekkai, Lancome, Avon and Serge Lutens.

kate+winslet+sag+2009 SAG Awards Beauty: Kate WinsletKate’s glamorous low bun and side swept bang were created by Frederic Fekkai stylist Renato Campora using Fekkai products. To get the look, apply More All Day Density Styling Whip to wet hair for added volume. On the bottom portion only apply Coiff Magnifique Ultra-Light Finishing Creme to ends for a smooth blowout and to protect hair from the heat of styling tools. Using the Large Round Brush, blow dry hair and part on the right side. Once completely dry, use a one inch curling iron throughout hair to create tousled movement with dimension. Apply Technician Glaze to ends working it through with fingers for texture that is not too heavy. Tease the top of the head – ever so slightly – to create a touch of height. Next pull hair back into a low ponytail. Create a loose braid and twist it around to form a bun. Secure with pins. Making a braid helps to keep the bun from appearing to severe and gives it the soft modern touch.

kate+winslet+lancome+sag+2009 SAG Awards Beauty: Kate WinsletCelebrity makeup artist Jillian Dempsey played up Kate’s eyes with lots of black eyeliner, mascara and shimmering shadow paired with a soft neutral palette on her lips and cheeks. Jillian used Lancôme Artliner in Noir on the upper lash line and then lightly dusted Jillian Dempsey Professional for Avon Eyeshadow Trio in Pebble Wash on the eyelid. She finished the eyes with a few coats of Lancôme Ôscillation Mascara in Black. For the lips, she used Serge Lutens nude lip liner and filled in the entire lip. Finally, she applied Color Fever Gloss in Engaging, a very sheer nude shade, for a high-shine pout.

Golden Globes Gorgeous: America Ferrera

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

america+ferrera Golden Globes Gorgeous: America FerreraThis Year for the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards, nominee America Ferrera, walked the red carpet with makeup designed by Linda Hay.

“Inspired by America’s effortlessly chic Oscar de la Renta dress, I kept her look sweet and simple,” said celebrity make-up artist, Linda Hay. Linda used Jouer’s Age Repairing Brightener around the eye and on the nose to illuminate America’s eyes. “The skin, I kept as sheer as possible by using as little as possible. I like to cover whatever’s required without over doing it because America has beautiful skin,” Linda said. On the cheeks, using finger-tip application, Linda applied Jouer’s Lip and Cheek Tint in Amaryllis, a sheer warm read which blended in to compliment America’s skin tone. “On her eyes, I applied a light and sheer shimmer all over the lid and inner corner of the eye, with a metallic silver shadow in the crease.” Using a black pencil, Linda applied a thin, defined line right above her lashes. Linda applied three coats of Dior Blackout Mascara to America’s eyes to make them pop.

Golden Globes Gorgeous: Hayden Panetierre

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

hayden+panettiere Golden Globes Gorgeous: Hayden PanetierreCelebrity makeup artist Amy Oresman created Hayden Panetierre’s Golden Globe look – and now she shares her secrets to this flawless face:

Eyes: “With eyes like Hayden’s green sparklers, who needs a load of jewelry? We amped up the brilliance of Hayden’s green eyes with Neutrogena’s newest Nourishing Eye Quad in Vintage Wine. It includes a dazzlingly deep burgundy in a powder powerful enough to act as an eyeliner, which is perfect for creating the smoky look that Hayden adores. I layered on the Vintage Wine at the lash line and doubled it in the outer corners for an extra flash of drama.”

Face: “I love to build on Hayden’s golden look with Neutrogena Radiance Bronzer in Sunkissed. I swept it through the crease of her eye and all around her cheekbones and neck. It’s so soft and light you just cannot put too much on … so go crazy with it!”

“After bronzing, I mixed two delectable Neutrogena Soft Color Blushes – Sunny Spice and Divine Wine and applied them with a round brush in a circular motion to the apples of Hayden’s cheeks. I love layering this blush — it’s so sheer you can dust a little color in the crease of the eye to tie your look together.”

Lips: “This year lipstick is back and Neutrogena’s are brighter and better. My favorite is Neutrogena’s Moisture LipColor in Whisper Pink for painting on the perfect pout. It goes on with just a hint of shine so it leaves your lips looking healthy and moist.”

Also, remember the following tips when re-creating this glamorous face. First, never contour with blush. It makes you look so retro-80s – and not in a good way. And slip a pack of blotting sheets into your evening clutch, to remove shine without removing your makeup.
