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.

The Bachelor Wedding Makeup Created by Mally Roncal

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
Perfect Prep Poreless Face Primer

Britney Spears Is Blonde Again

britney+spears+blonde Britney Spears Is Blonde AgainLook who’s blonde again! It’s Britney, b*tch.

After months of rocking a darker do, Brit Brit decided to lighten up. So, this past weekend, she went to Nine Zero One salon in West Hollywood and changed up her color…which looks great on her, I think.

Even more remarkable are her new extensions. This is the first time I can remember them not looking embarrassingly busted. By golly, they actually look like real hair growing out of Britney’s head…not like Sean Preston and Jayden James wove mommy’s weave in during arts & crafts class.

I give Britney’s new do 3 enthusiastic thumbs up.

Makeup Mondays With Mario: Red Lipstick

mmwmd large Makeup Mondays With Mario: Red Lipstick

Celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic is answering your burning beauty questions!!! Every Monday, he will answer a beauty/skin care question as part of a weekly column on Spoiled Pretty, Makeup Mondays with Mario.

Hi Mario,

I love all the work you do. I really enjoy your “Get the Face” posts on your blog. My question is: What is the best way to apply red lipstick and how do you stop it from bleeding?

Thanks,
Priscilla

red+lips Makeup Mondays With Mario: Red LipstickHi Priscilla,

There are a few great tips that I can share with you when it comes to applying red lipstick. First, line your lips with a matte pencil that is similar to the lipstick color or darker. Using a triangular shaped sponge, dip it into loose translucent powder and apply it right below the outer corner of the lip line. Don’t blend the powder yet as that will be last. This will prevent the lipstick from bleeding. Apply the red lipstick using a lip brush and make sure to fill the lips in completely. Take a tissue and blot your lips – that should absorb some of the lipstick, leaving a sort of stained effect on the lips. Apply one more coat of lipstick, then sweep away the loose powder from below…and now you’re good to go. Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario.

xo,
Mario

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation Plus Orgasm Illuminator Equals Perfection

nars+sheer+glow+foundation NARS Sheer Glow Foundation Plus Orgasm Illuminator Equals Perfection

I’m not much of a cook, but I’ve got one heck of a recipe for ya…

Yesterday, my boo took me out for breakfast. As we sat across the table from each other, Graham kept gushing about my complexion. “Your skin looks amazing. Really, you’re glowing…it looks so fresh and healthy.” That’s when I really started beaming, as Mr. Spoiled Pretty throws around compliments like manhole covers (his euphemism, not mine).

NARS+Orgasm+Illuminator NARS Sheer Glow Foundation Plus Orgasm Illuminator Equals PerfectionSo what’s my secret? Unfortunately, this time, it had nothing to do with the pregnancy hormones. This glow was a gift from NARS. A few weeks ago when I was in NYC for Fashion Week, I had an opportunity to meet with the NARS team – and I got color matched by James Boehmer, NARS International Lead Makeup Stylist. NARS gifted me with their Sheer Matte and Sheer Glow foundations in Cadiz (medium-dark with caramel and red undertones) – which was a PERFECT match, by the by.

Anyways, so my glow yesterday was the result of the Sheer Glow Foundation mixed with the new Orgasm Illuminator. Here’s the recipe: mix 2 parts foundation with 1 part Orgasm Illuminator, and apply with a brush or sponge (I recommend the beautyblender). Then go somewhere where your beauty can be truly appreciated, and wait for the compliments to start flying.

Glo-oh-ow get ‘em, girl.

PS – I want to take this opportunity to give a big shout out to NARS for their wide range of foundation shades. Far too often, women with deeper complexions find themselves forgotten by makeup brands. Not so with NARS. I’m so glad to have found this foundation. I encourage you to go to your nearest NARS counter or Sephora store and get color matched too. I guarantee you won’t be able to leave empty-handed.
