kate winslet academy awards 2009 Oscars 2009 Beauty: Kate WinsletAcademy Award winner Kate Winslet looked beautiful in a multi-toned one shoulder YSL dress. Celebrity makeup artist Jillian Dempsey wanted to create a classic, natural look.

First, she prepped Kate’s skin with Lancôme La Base Pro primer to create a smooth canvas for a polished complexion. She lightly brushed Lancôme Brow Expert in Naturel on the brows to play up their natural shape.

Jillian Dempsey for Avon Pro Eyeshadow Trio in Ice Shimmer was applied to the eyes and the lashes were coated with Jillian Dempsey for Avon Pro Mascara in Black. To create a sheer, neutral colored lip, Lancôme Color Fever Lipstick in Old Flame was applied for a soft, matte finish.

Frederic Fekkai’s Renato Campora tended to the tresses of Kate Winslet. The inspiration was a modern day Grace Kelly that compliments her total look and silhouette; a wavy texture with a dynamic shape.

Get the Look: Start out by applying Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel at the roots combined with some on ends. After applying the products, take the blow drier and hand dry the hair completely getting all of the natural texture to come out. Follow this by taking a 1″ curling iron and curling random pieces. Once finished, pull up half of the hair allowing a few pieces to fall down and frame the face. Braid two small braids on either side of the temples and pull them back. To finish the look, spray hair with Fekkai Glossing Sheer Shine Mist and Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray.

For the 2009 Oscars, hairstylist Julie Baker used FHI Heat hair tools to help create a very elegant, modern chignon for her longtime client Queen Latifah.

queen latifah academy awards 2009 Oscars 2009 Beauty: Queen Latifah“Latifah’s dress is very elegant, modern and chic, and her hair needs to complement this, so we decided on a modern chignon which features very smooth hair, a side part, bangs that swoop down in front, a low bun in the back that is off to the side,” said Baker.

To achieve this glamorous modern look, Baker dried Latifah’s hair using the new FHI Heat Nano Salon Pro 2000 blow dryer, then applied FHI Heat Hot Sauce (a heat-activated conditioner that protects hair) to slightly damp hair. Last, she used her favorite FHI Heat Runway styling iron to smooth out Latifah’s tresses, before styling it into a chignon.

New York Fashion Week: Bodkin, Fall 2009

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.”

The other day, Amber was sporting the most gorge Giselle-esque waves. When I inquired how I could cop her style, she shocked me. Amber didn’t use a curling iron or flat iron to style her hair. She used a hair dryer – Remington’s new Emi Style System Dryer with Airwave Attachment, to be exact. And get this…it costs $29.99!

You best believe I’m getting a hold of the AirWave right quick. Hopefully, it also works on ethnic hair. I’ll keep you posted.

The Remington AirWave is available at drugstore.com, though Target is selling it for $7 cheaper.
