heidi+klum+oscars+2009 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: Spotted – Nicole Richie and Kate Bosworth!

 New York Fashion Week: Spotted   Nicole Richie and Kate Bosworth!

After I got my hair (Warren Tricomi) and makeup (Smashbox) done at the Fashion Week Daily Suite, I headed over to Bryant Park to drink coffee and people watch. Imagine my surprise when I spotted Nicole Richie and Kate Bosworth emerging from the Promenade within minutes of each other.

Nicole’s hair really is to die for…the cameras don’t lie. And Kate graciously posed for pictures as a thousand and one photogs shouted her name and blinded her with flashes.

Unfortunately, while I had my head on a swivel, I didn’t have my camera at the ready. Hopefully, these won’t be the last star sightings at New York Fashion Week, Fall 2009.

New York Fashion Week: Star Spotting at the MAC Lounge

 New York Fashion Week: Star Spotting at the MAC Lounge

Happy Tuesday, Spoiled Pretty readers. I’m one day away from the end of my New York Fashion Week tour, and it’s been a whirlwind. Today, while chilling in the MAC Lounge backstage at Bryant Park, Erika and I met Joy Bryant, Santogold and Monet Mazur. After attending the Matthew Williamson show, the three friends yucked it up while filming a video for MAC.

Before they departed for their next fabulous destination, we snapped some pics and asked them about their favorite MAC products.

Joy, who wore no makeup (and was ridiculously gorgeous despite the fact) dished that she can’t live without MAC’s Ruby Woo Lipstick. She says that it’s the only lipstick she ever wears…and she’s running low. Do you hear that, MAC?

Santogold, who is so contagiously vivacious and funky fun, said that she wears MAC Glitter in Reflects Antique Gold. In fact, she puts it on before every show.

Sam Fine’s Secrets To Queen Latifah’s Grammy Look

queen+latifah+grammys Sam Fines Secrets To Queen Latifahs Grammy Look
“Often clients make requests,” says makeup artist Sam Fine. “Last night, Queen had one request: she wanted to look natural with wonderful skin, sparse lashes and a great brow. Most of the time was spent perfecting the canvas.”

Want to get Queen Latifah’s natural look? Here’s how…

FACE
Use a cream foundation to give skin a supple, flawless complexion. Next, apply a bit of powder to the t-zone only. This allows the outer perimeter of the skin to glow naturally. Layer on bronzer to add a glow, then follow with a bit of blush on the apples of the cheek. “Since Queen was wearing a strapless dress, I applied a thin layer of moisturizer to her shoulders and collar bone. Then I dusted on some bronzer to make draw a bit of attention and make them shimmer,” says Sam.

Products to try: CoverGirl Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Pressed Powder, CoverGirl Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Bronzer in Ebony Bronze, CoverGirl TruBlend Microminerals Foundation, CoverGirl TruBlend Microminerals Blush in Shimmering Sands

EYES
Apply a small amount of highlighter to underneath the brow bone. Then use the same bronzer as a shadow and sweep it lightly across the eyelids. Use a smokey black pencil liner to line the upper lid and then smudge it with a deep ebony shadow. Apply a few coats of mascara. “I used barely any eyeshadow when creating this look. Very less is more,” advises Sam. ” An alternative to the deep ebony shadow could be a dark navy. As always when creating an eye for an awards show or event, don’t forget your false lashes.”

Products to try: CoverGirl Eye Enhancers in Shimmering Onyx, CoverGirl Outlast SmoothWear All-Day Eyeliner in Onyx

LIPS
Line the lips with a liner that is one shade darker than your natural color. Then apply a matching shimmering lip gloss on top. Voila! “The lips were extremely nude to compliment the rest of the classic look,” says Sam.

Products to try: CoverGirl Wetslicks AmazeMint Lip Gloss in No Care Bare, CoverGirl Wetslicks Outlast Smoothwear Lip Liner in Nude

Kim Kardashian’s Favorite Hair Styling Cream

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!”

hello+kitty+collection MAC and Hello Kitty In The Big City

As you’ve probably heard, MAC Cosmetics has teamed up with the international pop culture phenomenon Hello Kitty, to create a color story that takes its cue from both the fantastical world of Hello Kitty and the glamorous fashion scene.

Somewhere between a coy girl and sexy siren, MAC Hello Kitty represents the desire in all of us to be both innocent and mischievous. More Angelina Jolie than Shirley Temple, the feisty new color collection takes its inspiration from the complex, yet elegantly feminine sensibility.

In celebration of the partnership, MAC has taken it to the stylish next level and tapped into its fashion reservoir of friends and assembled a team of 30 internationally renowned designers, to create one-of-a-kind pieces that are inspired by the Hello Kitty collection.

 MAC and Hello Kitty In The Big CityMAC asked designers to work within the color palette of the Hello Kitty collection of black, grey, white and pink and posed the question, “What would MAC Hello Kitty wear if she were a fashionista?” Designers were given creative freedom to create pieces in their own aesthetic and on February 5th in New York, MAC unveiled the exclusive designs to the world with a global Hello Kitty cocktail party and fashion exhibit showcasing the ensembles.

It was MAC Hello Kitty Commotion! My bestie, Amber, was in attendance. Click here to get the inside scoop (and see a pic of her encounter with a certain celeb from MTV’s The City).
