Grammy Gorgeous: Keri Hilson

grammy+heri+hilson Grammy Gorgeous: Keri Hilson“Keri Hilson looked like a 1950′s diva when she left for the 2010 Grammys, said celebrity makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff. “Her peach dress with jeweled waistband was fit to the T and hugged every curve with care. I was inspired to play up her beautiful hazel eyes and also give a touch of edge to her Hollywood glam goddess look.”

“Before applying makeup, always start with clean, toned and moisturized skin. I use Mary Kay’s TimeWise Targeted-Action Eye Revitalizer to refresh tired eyes. I love Enessa Neroli Oil Spray to tone skin and make skin glow. To finish, prep skin with La Mer Moisturizer.”

The Perfect Face
“I love for Keri to look flawless because she has such a beautiful bone structure. I use Smashbox Photo Finish Primer to give makeup long wearability, then I apply COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Compact Foundation to create a flawless finish. I create a sculpted glowing face using COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Bronzer in Light Bronze. I also use it to contour the nose and cheekbones.”

Radiant Cheeks
“I love the soft peach tones of her dress so I accented Keri’s cheeks with Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Strawberry Cream which has a subtle cotton candy rose tone with a beautiful shimmer to it, so cheeks just glow.”

Standout Eyes
“Keri wanted to have a jewel tone smoke so I chose a beautiful deep purple shade from Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Sweet Plum on her lids and lower lash line. As a base to intensify the purple shadow I applied COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast in Purple Plume. Then I created depth using Tigi Bed Head Big Fat Fun Liner in Purple and COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume Mascara in Black to top the look, coating both bottom and top lashes three times. I used Ja’Maal Buster’s Lash Line to add that extra drama for red carpet flare.”

Luscious Lips
“I didn’t want to do just a nude lip and smoky eye so instead I went retro – think Kevyn Aucoin meets Naomi Campbell in the 90′s with a deeper liner using Mary Kay Lip Liner in Berry. I lined lips then used a brush to blend the liner out so it had soft edges then used COVERGIRL Queen Collection Lip Gloss in Pearled Peach in the center of the lips to create the perfect pout.”

Glorious Brows
“Brows frame the face and I love Keri’s brows because they are naturally high arched but also full. So I fill them in with Dior Universal Brow Pencil then brush them with Dior Shiny Blonde Brow Gel so they shimmer with a golden glow.”

Bodilicious
“Keri’s dress was amazing and really showed off her curves so I wanted her skin to glow. I used Sally Beauty Body Glow Shimmer spray to give her body that shimmery glow.”

Grammy Gorgeous: Katy Perry

katy+perry+grammys Grammy Gorgeous: Katy PerryAfter a recent trip to India, Katy Perry brought back a variety of bindis and together, with celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey, they used this as inspiration to create a “Bettie Page, Indian princess look” for this year’s Grammy Awards.

To perfect her skin, Jake used Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation and to set the look, he dusted Guerlain Les Violettes Matte Touch Powder all over the face.

Jake then highlighted the apples of her cheeks with CORALista blush from benefit.

Keeping with the exotic feel, Jake used a mixture of shimmery plums and golds on her eyes. “I was going for a more colorful version of the tradition smoky eye,” said Jake. Jake used COVERGIRL’s double-ended smoky eye stick, Smoky ShadowBlast in Purple Plume by first applying the angled end of the shadow stick, the deeper plum, over the entire lid and blending into a smoky halo. He then applied Smoky ShadowBlast in Bronze Fire, using the round, golden end to line along the lid and inner corners of her eyes to brighten the look.

To complete her smoky eye, Jake created an ultra-long lash look with several coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast Length in black. “The best thing about this mascara is that you can apply coat after coat to get maximum impact without losing separation and elegance,” said Jake.
To balance her dramatic eyes without overpowering them, Jake finished her look with a matte lip, using COVERGIRL Outlast Lipstain in Wild Berry Wink. “I love these Lipstains so much because you can line and shape the entire lip without sacrificing your own lip texture,” Jake finished.

Julia Roberts on Being Lancôme’s Global Ambassador

Lancome Julia Roberts Julia Roberts on Being Lancôme’s Global AmbassadorMoments before making her debut as Lancôme’s global ambassador, Julia Roberts was coming to grips with her new responsibilities, reports today’s Women’s Wear Daily. In a candid interview, Roberts talks about her role in her upcoming movie Eat, Pray, Love, owing her career to Garry Marshall, her new role at Lancôme and how having kids has changed her beauty regimen.

On being Lancôme’s global ambassador: “I think I have to stand up straighter and wash my face more,” Roberts laughed. “It’s kind of like every girl’s dream, really,” she continued, referring to her role with the L’Oréal-owned brand. “To be 42 and have three kids and be a working mom, it’s a great moment to be asked to do this and to be able to do it. I think it says a lot about Lancôme and what they stand for.”

On filming Eat, Pray, Love: “It was quite a huge undertaking. It was a little bit daunting, dragging three little kids around the world, but well worth it…It was really like the acting Olympics,” continued Roberts. “It’s been a long time since I’ve had a full-time acting job. I am really glad that I made the decision to go off and do that movie.”

On her beauty regimen after having children:“It kind of comes to a screeching halt. At a certain point in the future, I’ll pick it back up again…I think the nice thing about getting older is it forces you in a way to take a greater interest in your [beauty] regime. And so it’s a good moment for me to join forces with people who can help me.”

Golden Globes Gorgeous 2010: Fergie

fergie+golden+globes+2010 Golden Globes Gorgeous 2010: Fergie“Fergie’s styling team is very much a team and she is instrumental in the process,” says Ronit. “We all come to her with ideas in mind and piece them together (clothes styling, hair and makeup). She is an incredibly creative person with a strong vision so communication is easy.”

For the Golden Globes the inspiration was Fergie’s lavender, Grecian dress. “When she decided on this dress, I knew immediately that I wanted to use YSL’s Rouge Volupté #2 and Golden Gloss #10,” says Ronit. “I based the rest of the makeup look around the lips with balance in mind. We kept her makeup natural and glow-y; we love warm, glowing skin because it radiates youth and happiness. Also, as her makeup artist, my favorite part is accentuating her blue eyes with warm tones and a soft lip. The strong brow was a new look which came about on the set of a new music video which we just filmed. It looks great with her new, dark locks and adds a fun, fresh touch.”

Perfect Touch Radiant Brush Foundation #5 was applied with the application brush and then smoothed with fingertips for a flawless finish. Touche Eclat #2 was applied to the bridge of the nose and to the cheekbones to accentuate her glowing skin. Rouge Volupte #2 and Golden Gloss #10 gave Fergie the perfect nude lip to compliment her lavender gown. Finally, Fergie’s lashes were topped with tons of Mascara Singulier in black.
