For the 2009 MTV Movie Awards, CoverGirl makeup artist Molly R. Stern created a sexy and edgy look for Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester. “She wanted to look like herself while celebrating the rock ’n roll spirit of the night,” says Molly.
“I started by basing her skin with Cle de Peau’s new Cream Foundation in O20. For her blush, I used Shiseido’s Accentuating Powder Blush in Glistening Brown.”
“On her eyes, I based them with Vincent Longo’s Liquid Eyeshadow in Midnight Mauve. Over that, on the inside lid into the crease, I dusted NARS Night Clubbing glittery powder eyeshadow. Inside her eye both bottom and top, I lined her eyes with CoverGirl Exact Eyelights Brightening Liner in Vibrant Pearl (NEW from CoverGirl, hitting shelves in late July!!). Her mascara is CoverGirl LashBlast Luxe in Black Emerald. And to finish the look, she is wearing CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain in Cinnamon Smile.”
For last month’s Maxim Hot 100 party, Kim Kardashian rocked gorge emerald eyes. On his blog, Kim’s makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, posts about the products he used to create the look.
Hey guys… For the Maxim Hot 100 event, Kim wore an all while dress and the hair was pulled back so I definitely wanted to use a little bit of color on her eyes and green is my favorite color. I really like how this look came out on her and it photographed beautifully. When using a color on the eyes, keep the cheeks and lips soft and pretty. Here’s how to get the face…
Skin – Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation by Make Up For Ever in Neutral Beige. GIELLA concealer in #2. Set the face and under the eyes with Make Up For Ever HD translucent powder.
Eyes – Golden Olive Pigment by MAC on lids. Humid Eye Shadow by MAC in the crease and blended on the lower lashline. Electric Edge Liquid Eyeliner Marker Pen by Calvin Klein in Electric Black on the upper lid and winged out a little on the outer corner. GIELLA Dazzle Eye Pencil on the inner corners (tear ducts) and on the inner rim of the eye. Two coats of L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black, top and bottom lashes.
Cheeks – Rock & Republic Contrived Pressed Blush in Call Me on the apples of the cheeks. Apply Summer Affair Bronzing Powder by Calvin Klein framing the face lightly.
Lips – No lip liner. Just a clear gloss 😉 Let me know how it comes out if you try it!

In the past week, Rihanna has been taking her hair to new heights. How do we feel about her sky-high hairdos?
Halle Berry looks amazing no matter what she’s got going on with her hair, save for her recent Harper’s Bazaar cover. (Whose harebrained idea was it to put a Raquel Welch-esque wig on Halle Berry?)
But I’m absolutely loving the new short do she debuted yesterday. When you’ve got a face like Halle’s, a cropped coif that frames her delicate features seems like a no-brainer.
What do you think of Halle’s return to short hair?
