Oscars Beauty 2011: Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett+Johansson+oscars+academy+awards+2011 Oscars Beauty 2011: Scarlett Johansson

Duffy for Frederic Fekkai styled 2011 Academy Awards presenter, Scarlett Johansson.

INSPIRATION: Duffy sought to bring out “the real Scarlett Johansson” by creating a young, sexy, modern shag with dry texture.

HOW TO:
1. Begin by applying Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Volume™ Styling Whip to towel-dried hair, working the product in from roots to ends.
2. Dry hair using Fekkai Classic Brush to create loose, tousled waves for the textured effect.
3. Apply Fekkai Full Blown Volume™ Lifting Hairspray to roots to prep the foundation
4. At the nape of the neck, spritz hair with Fekkai Coiff™ Océanique Tousled Wave Spray.
5. Using a 1 ½ inch curling iron wrap 2-3 inch sections of hair around the barrel of the iron, leaving ends out. Continue to repeat this act.
6. Take a hairdryer with nozzle attachment and blast the root of the hair for hold and volume.
7. Run fingers through the hair to break-up the waves.
8. Clamp the ends with a flat iron to flatten the curl, creating an imperfect, sleeker wave.
9. Finish the style with Fekkai Coiff™ Sheer Hold Hairspray to give a modern, edgy look.

Johansson’s Make Up Artist accentuated the star’s breathtaking beauty exclusively with products from the Dolce & Gabbana range.

He focused on eyes, shading and outlining them using The Smooth Eye Colour Quad in Stromboli 130, applying the darkest color close to the lash line on the lid and beneath the eye line. He then used the copper and bronze hues at the crease of her eye and highlighted the inner corner with a smudge of the golden tone from the palette. He finished the eyes with a sweep of The Crayon Intense Eyeliner in Gold 3 and several coats of The Volumized Lashes Mascara in Black 1 for volume and definition. For a effortless, natural glamour, he used The Ultra Shine Lipgloss in Candy 80 on Scarlett’s lips. A light dusting of The Illuminator in Eva 3 completed the look.

Speaking about the star’s glamorous look for the evening, her personal Make Up Artist said: “Scarlett was simply stunning in tones of gold and copper, offset with a sheer pink to accentuate her lips. She looked the epitome of the modern movie star.”

Jennifer Aniston Cuts Her Hair

jennifer+aniston+bob+haircut+madrid Jennifer Aniston Cuts Her Hair

Jennifer Aniston debuted a new do while promoting her new comedy “Just Go With It” in Madrid. I love a lob (long bob) – as you can tell from my updated Twitter avatar…it’s my signature style. But I’m not digging it on Jen. Is it just me or does it make her look older? She looks tired, right? Perhaps the the lighter blond is washing her out a bit. I think a little lipstick would have helped to sell me on this new look.

I’ve heard time and time again that “women of a certain age” should wear their hair shorter…well, if this doesn’t disprove that myth, I don’t know what does.

This haircut probably seemed like a fun idea at the time, but I predict that Jen will soon regret it (kinda like her fling with John Douchebag Mayer).

What do you think? Does Jen’s new cut make the cut?

Conair Infiniti Pro Blow Dryer

conair+infiniti+pro Conair Infiniti Pro Blow Dryer

I have a new special something in my life that I’m excited to tell y’all about.

Meet my new blow dryer boo, Conair’s Infiniti Pro. We’ve been going steady for almost two months and things are heating up.

Our courtship began when my old hair dryer started actin’ up. Even when I used it on the medium setting, the dryer would operate on high. No joke – it was like the heat of Hades was coming out of that thing. I didn’t want to chance a Michael Jackson Pepsi commercial-esque catastrophe, so I decided it was time for us to part ways.

Fortuitously, around the same time, I received an email from Conair – asking me if I’d like to review their Infiniti Pro 1875-Watt Salon-Performance AC Motor Styling Tool. I responded with a resounding “yes” and a few days later, it arrived on my doorstep so that we could get better acquainted.

Infiniti Pro, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…

Thanks to its powerful AC motor, the Infiniti Pro performs like a salon-quality dryer. It also dries hair super fast, which cuts down on styling damage. The Infiniti Pro uses ionic technology that reduces static electricity and leaves hair silkier, shinier, and more manageable. Plus it’s much quieter and lighter than your average dryer. Best of all, it only costs around $35.

I also love that I can use my comb attachment with the Infiniti Pro; when a dryer doesn’t accommodate my comb attachment, it’s a deal breaker.

The only thing I’d change about my hair dryer honey is the position of the buttons – or, rather, how easy it is to adjust the heat/air flow settings. Sometimes when I’m gripping the handle, I accidentally click one of the switches, which changes the settings.

Aside from this minor caveat, I’m very happy with the Infiniti Pro and I think we’re in it for the long haul.

Get The Look: Bryce Dallas Howard at Eclipse Premiere

bryce+dallas+howard+eclipse+premiere+3 Get The Look: Bryce Dallas Howard at Eclipse Premiere

CHANEL Celebrity Makeup Artist Kate Lee worked with Bryce Dallas Howard at the Los Angeles premiere of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse on Thursday, June 24th. Follow Kate’s tips below to steal Bryce’s modern classic Hollywood look.

“Bryce’s skin is milky perfection and her hair a deep auburn, so I wanted to avoid doing the expected, and decided to go for a bold lip. Her skin was prepped with CHANEL Hydramax + Active Serum, and then I applied a mineral foundation. Her cheeks were CHANEL Powder Blush in Imprévu, which is a great mix of rose and bronze. I lined the eyes with the new CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Clair, and then went over the top with a pale pearlescent peach shadow from the new CHANEL Quadra Eye Shadow in Enigma to reflect the light. I then applied two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir. On her lips I used CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Cambon which I matted down into a stain. I used the clear CHANEL Brow Shaper to set her brows in place, and then off she went to the craziest premiere of the year! The fans had been camping out for a few nights already!”

bryce+dallas+howard+eclipse+premiere Get The Look: Bryce Dallas Howard at Eclipse Premiere
For her winning red carpet coiff, star stylist David Babaii created a relaxed, Bridget Bardot inspired look. Luminous waves highlighted her luxurious titian-colored hair as it was pulled back on each side, accented with a subtle beehive with shiny, healthy beautiful hair cascading sensually down her back. Babaii released several strands to strategically fall forward and frame Bryce’s face for a modern 60’s effect.
David Babaii Explains How To Get The Look:
“I prepared Bryce’s hair by applying a small amount of argan oil-infused original Moroccanoil Treatment on damp hair before blow-drying to condition, strengthen and protect strands from the heat of the curling iron as well as to eliminate any sign of frizz or static. It absorbs instantly and speeds my blow-drying time so I can concentrate on styling. I love using Moroccanoil Treatment with flat or curling irons when I work because the hair becomes even better conditioned and healthier.
“Once the hair was dry, I applied Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to the palm of my hands then randomly finger-combed sections of the hair for natural looking hold. After making a center part, I used a curling iron to form loose, flowing waves that were easy to work and to tuck behind the ears. I then gently teased the hair at the crown to create a suggestion of a Bardot bee-hive, pinned the sides, and left a soft cascade of gorgeous hair flowing down her back. Next, I lightly misted Bryce’s hair using Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray for an extra boost of natural-looking shine to reflect her beautiful color, especially in the bright lights on the red carpet. It was important to me to give the hair a luminous, ethereal look, and perfect condition and lustre was essential.

“To hold the hair in place without compromising on shine or movement, I finished the style with new Moroccanoil Luminous Hair Spray, which is blended with Moroccanoil’s exclusive argan oil-infused formula. It sprays on in a soft, diffused mist and I love how touchable the hair feels, as well as so moveable with long-lasting hold that lasts all night long.”

INSPIRATION: A soft take on the 1950’s pompadour
