Oscars Beauty 2010: Sandra Bullock

sandra+bullock+academy+awards+oscars+2010 Oscars Beauty 2010: Sandra Bullock“Tonight was Sandra’s big night and she was in a happy, ethereal mood. I wanted her to look like the true movie star she is, so we went with modern classy Hollywood – dewy skin, soft eyes, and a bold classic red lip.” -Makeup Artist Angela Levin

Angela prepped Sandra’s skin with CHANEL Sublimage Fluid. She then used a foundation brush to apply CHANEL Vitalumiere Satin Smoothing Fluid Makeup in Shell all over the face.

Angela created a structured brow with the soft brown powder in the limited edition Les Regards de CHANEL Palette. She lined Sandra’s eyes with the darker brown shade in the same palette. Finally, she applied three coats of CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir for sexy, glamorous lashes.

To create the real focus of Sandra’s look – a gorgeous, bold red lip – Angela applied CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Paris. She finished the look by gently dabbing a bit of the same lip color on the apples of Sandra’s cheeks – Angela’s signature makeup trick.

sandra+bullock+oscars+academy+awards+2010 Oscars Beauty 2010: Sandra BullockFrederic Fekkai stylist Adir Abergel wanted to bring back simplicity, with Sandra’s sleek and straight down-do. The strong side part created beautiful lines to compliment her dress. He modernized the texture of the hair by creating a sleek look, with a slight wave at the end.

Conditioned hair is very important for any sleek style. Abergel used FEKKAI Advanced Glossing Shampoo and Conditioner, leaving the conditioner on for 15 minutes. He then rinsed and towel dried the hair. Then he parted the hair in a deep side part. Abergel recommends following the arch of your brow to choose where to part your hair. He then took a large FEKKAI Round Brush and blow-dried the hair completely straight, making sure the roots were flat. Then spray with FEKKAI Sheer Hold Hairspray to 2″ sections of hair from roots to the end and use a flat iron to get a bone straight effect. To finish the look, Abergel took a 1 1/4″ inch curling iron and lightly curled the ends of the hair for a nice slight wave and tucked the bangs behind the ear. To complete the look he added the FEKKAI Silky Straight Ironless Smooth Finish Serum to create a sleek finish.

Oscars Beauty 2010: Cameron Diaz

cameron+diaz+oscars+academy+awards+2010 Oscars Beauty 2010: Cameron Diaz“We took the Veronica Lake regal, smooth, classic Hollywood look and gave it a modern but glamorous twist. We kept the warmth and added a little edge.” -Makeup Artist Robin Fredriksz

Robin started off by applying CHANEL Soft Touch Eye Shadow in Sand in the crease of the lids, and lining the entire eye with CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Noir. To make Cameron’s striking blue eyes pop even more, Robin applied several coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir.

As Cameron has loved a red lip lately, Robin lined her lips with CHANEL Lip Definer in Rouge, and applied the perfect true red lip shade – CHANEL Rouge Coco in Gabrielle. She used the same shade of lip color as a blush, dabbing a bit on the apples of the cheeks.

Her nails were painted with CHANEL Nail Colour in Lotus Rouge, a flattering shade perfect for the red carpet.

Oscars Beauty 2010: Amanda Seyfried

amanda+seyfried+academy+awards+oscars+2010 Oscars Beauty 2010: Amanda Seyfried“The look I was going for Amanda was movie star glamour while maintaining a young, fresh and modern feel.” -Makeup Artist Monika Blunder

For Amanda’s skin, Monika started off moisturizing her with CHANEL Sublimage Fluid to give her a natural glow. Then she applied CHANEL Teint Innocence Foundation in Gentle Ivory all over her skin.

Monika first lined her upper and lower lash line with CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Noir, extending the line past the outer corner and up. Then she blended with a brush to soften any hard lines. Next, she applied the darkest color in the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Smoky Eyes starting at lash line and blending up towards the brow bone using a variation of the lighter colors in the palette. She finished with CHANEL Soft Touch Eye Shadow in Ivory on the inner corner of top and bottom lash line. To complete the eyes, she curled the lashes and applied three coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir.

CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Petale gave her a fresh rosy glow on her cheeks. Amanda’s look was completed by applying CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Perle.

Harry Josh, John Frieda International Creative Consultant, shared his styling secrets to get Amanda Seyfried’s cool, understated look with easy-to-use tips and tricks.

oscars+academy+awards+2010+amanda+seyfried Oscars Beauty 2010: Amanda SeyfriedHarry gave Amanda the new Frizz-Ease Smooth Start Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner in advance as the frizz-fighting formula was essential to smooth and hydrate dry strands and replenish moisture for a nice, smooth blow out.

“These shampoos and conditioners were the perfect way for Amanda to prep her hair,” said Harry. “The look was clean and sleek, so it was important to start the fight against frizz early so that Amanda’s hair would be silky, shiny and totally manageable.”

Harry applied the new Root Awakening Strength Restoring Gel to Amanda’s hair at the roots to help achieve the sleek, flattened shape he was going for. Using a tail comb instead of a round brush to avoid lift, Harry blew the hair out, combing it flat to the head as he dried.

Harry then used the Sheer Blonde Crystal Clear Shape & Shimmer Hairspray section by section to hold the style. “Amanda has such beautiful naturally blonde hair that I wanted to ensure it looked its best all night and didn’t photograph dark – which some finishing sprays can cause. By using a light hairspray you avoid adding residue or darkening the blonde hair.”

Harry finished by creating an extreme, slick side part and pulling Amanda’s hair back into a bun. He left a little bit of the bun sticking out in a fan, a last minute decision he made to reflect the pattern on Amanda’s earrings.

Oscars Beauty 2010: Rachel McAdams

rachel+mcadams+academy+awards+oscars+2010 Oscars Beauty 2010: Rachel McAdams“We chose our colour palette based on the water color look of Rachel’s dress. There was a wash of cool tones in the dress, blue, green, purple, pink so we wanted the eye, cheek and lips to all have this same water color sheerness to it.” -Makeup Artist Kayleen McAdams

For Rachel’s eyes, Kayleen used a combination of grey and pink shades. On the lid, she used CHANEL Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Fountain.

She kept the grey on the outer corners of the lid and underneath the eye. She used the rose gold shade in the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Spices up to the brown bone and along the lid. To finish it off, Kayleen used CHANEL Soft Touch Eye Shadow in Slate in the inner corners of the eye, and followed up with two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir.

She kept the lips very simple with CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Rose Comete, a beautiful light pink shade, and a bit of CHANEL Glossimer in Futile to accentuate the lips but keep the focus on the eyes.

Oscars Beauty 2010: Anna Kendrick

anna+kendrick+academy+awards+oscars+5 Oscars Beauty 2010: Anna KendrickCelebrity makeup artist Sara Glick created Best Supporting Actress Nominee Anna Kendrick’s beauty look for the Oscar’s tonight using Arcona skincare and tarte cosmetics.

Inspiration: Youthful, ethereal beauty – think soft, natural glowing skin.

Arcona Skincare – Prep: “Anna has beautiful skin and doesn’t need much to make it glow. I prepped her skin with a light, all natural moisturizer to help it stay hydrated throughout the night.”
* Prepped with Arcona’s Magic White Ice to protect, nourish and hydrate skin.

tarte Makeup – Cheeks: “For a natural flush, I accented Anna’s cheek bones with a coral shade.”
* Dabbed and blended tarte’s natural cheek stain in eco-cheek on the apples of her cheeks.

tarte Makeup – Lips: “I wanted to create a soft, healthy pink lip with a touch of shine.”
* tarte’s LipSurgence natural lip stain in charmed (light pink) as a base. Topped with tarte’s double-ended natural lipglosses in jake & samantha (used the samantha side-pale cotton candy pink) for added shine.

Arcona Skincare – Finish: “I finished with a light spritz of lavender mist for added hydration and an extra dose of calming with aromatherapy.”
* Set the look with Arcona’s Lavendar Hydrasol for a fresh and dewy complexion.

Anna Kendrick wore a romantic blush-colored Eli Saab gown on the Oscar red carpet, complimented by an effortlessly elegant, modern updo designed by stylist Craig Gangi.

Gangi, inspired by the graceful off-the-shoulder look, created an updo highlighting softly waved texture accenting healthy hair with natural-looking shine. He first applied argan oil-infused Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to add moisture and give hair a soft hold that was smooth as well as frizz-free and static-free.

After blow-drying hair straight, Gangi used a medium sized curling iron to create loose, natural waves. He then pulled strands back, leaving just enough hair at the nape of the neck to create a small ponytail, and shaped a loose, undone textured bun.

To add a touch of drama, he went back to weave three small braids with the remaining hair, then again braided the three with each other. Finally he circled the braid around the bun. After pinning the style, he sprayed Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to hold the look in place without stiffness, and misted the final updo with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray for additional boost of red carpet shine.

Moroccanoil is sold in fine salons and spas.

Bachelor+Jason+Mesnick+Molly+Malaney+wedding The Bachelor Wedding Makeup Created by Mally RoncalCelebrity Makeup Artist Mally Roncal Creates Molly Malaney’s Waterproof Look for The Bachelor Wedding on ABC

Celebrity makeup artist and Mally Beauty founder Mally Roncal flew to Los Angeles this past weekend to assist in the nuptials between ABC’s The Bachelor couple Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney. The televised event from Warner Horizon Television airs Monday, March 8th on ABC, and Mally worked to develop Molly’s wedding day makeup look and also produce a style for each of her bridesmaids.

With the tsunami warning looming on the West Coast, Mally knew her bulletproof makeup would hold up in inclement weather. “I design high performance products that can stand up to any element from camera lights to a 12-hour work day or even torrential downpour,” said Mally. When a deluge of rain passed through during the ceremony, Mally and her team waited behind the scenes for touch-ups. As Molly and the bridesmaids arrived safely indoors, they were blown away when they realized their makeup didn’t budge – a true testament to Mally’s brand.

To create Molly’s look, Mally used the products below from the Mally Beauty collection.

The NEW 7-Piece Secrets Collection, including:

Volumizing Mascara
Couture Color Custom Blush
Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Liner in Black Velvet
Cancellation Concealer System
Perfect Prep Eye Primer
