Get the look: Kate Hudson at the Deepwater Horizon premiere

Kate Hudson really embraced a red hot style last night for the premiere of her new movie Deepwater Horizon. The beautiful starlet stunned the red carpet in a tomato red romper accentuated with a matching throw jacket. As Hudson epitomized a true siren style, the Deepwater Horizon hottie was treated to a makeup and hair look to complement her entire style by celebrity makeup artist Debra Ferullo and celebrity stylist David Babaii.

"I was inspired to create a soft eye as the main focus to complement dewy skin, soft lips and Kate's amazing lashes," Ferullo shared about the inspiration behind the makeup look.

"Kate's look tonight is super chic and cool. I wanted to give her a rock-n-roll vibe and opted for a very textured look with a bold center part. It is so hot here in New Orleans so the products were key here to beat the Humidity," Babaii said about the hair look.

So, is it possible to recreate Hudson's hair and makeup? Absolutely.

Makeup

For Hudson's gorgeous glow, Ferullo used the Physicians Formula #instaReady Beauty Balm BB Cream SPF 30 in the shade Light/Medium. This product was initially used to prep the skin. As the celebrity makeup artist continued, she applied the Physicians Formula #instaReady Contour Trio SPF 30 BB Stick in Bronze onto Hudson's forehead and the hallow of her cheeks. Then, she applied the Physicians Formula #instaReady Contour Trio SPF 30 BB Stick in Blush to the apple of the actress's cheeks. To complete the face, Ferullo used the Physicians Formula #instaReady Filter Trio BB Powder SPF 30 to set the entire face.

As Ferullo continued, she applied the Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Extreme Shimmer Shadow & Liner in Copper Nude. The celebrity makeup artist added a subtle swipe of the cream shade on Hudson's lid. On the bottom lash line, Ferullo used the brown shimmer shade. "Kate has incredible lashes," she added. "I wanted to make them stand out as the focus of her look."

To complete the entire makeup look, the celebrity makeup artist created her own custom shade of lipstick for the Deepwater Horizon hottie using a Kryolan lip palette. She mixed a few bronzed colors together to perfect a bronzy gold lip color that sparkled.

Hair

First and foremost, you are going to want to prep the hair. For this look, Babaii used the Kerastase Paris Bain Chronologiste followed by the Kerastase Paris Creme Chronologiste. On Hudson's wet hair, the celebrity stylist applied the Kerastase Paris L'incroyable Blowdry Lotion all over. Not only does this product fight frizz, but smoothes the hair and ensures the hair is protected.

As the celebrity stylist continued, he rough dried Hudson's hair. Once her hair was dry, he parted the hair down the middle and started misting the Kerastase Paris Elixr Ultime Bi-Phase Spray Oil all over.

Once Babaii did this, he started to create little bends throughout Hudson's hair using a 1" curling iron. He wanted Hudson's hair to take on a very texturized look that was undone and natural. Babaii's goal was to wave Hudson's hair in different directions.

Then, he ran his hands through the waves of her hair to break them up. Taking the Kerastase Paris Elixr Ultime Bi-Phase Spray Oil, the celebrity stylist sprayed this onto Hudson's hair again. Babaii added that he loves this oil because it is lightweight and doesn't leave your hair looking or feeling greasy.

To finish the entire hair look, Babaii sprayed the Kerastase Paris Laque Dentelle on a toothbrush and brushed away any flyways the Deepwater Horizon hottie had.

Deepwater Horizon will be coming to a theater near you Friday, September 30, 2016. Congratulations! You have just recreated Kate Hudson's makeup and hair look for the premiere of her new movie Deepwater Horizon.

Get the makeup look: Kirsten Dunst at the 2016 Emmy Awards

Primetime Emmy Awards.

 Kirsten Dunst looked very elegant tonight at the Emmy Awards, in a very soft yet seductive black dress. And although her hair really complemented her style, what really brought the entire look together was her makeup. Dunst teamed up with celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff who found inspiration from Uma Thurman's character from the film Henry and June, based in the 1930's. 

So, is it possible to recreate this look at home? Absolutely.  
Dubroff started by prepping Dunst's skin. She applied the Sisley Paris Flower Express Gel Mask for a few minutes. Then, after removing the mask she applied the Sisley Paris Hydra-Global Intense Anti-Aging Hydration along the perimeter of the face. As she continued, she applied the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer throughout the center of the face just before smoothing Dunst's lips with the Sisley Paris Phyto Lip Twist Balm. 
As the celebrity makeup artist continued, she applied the Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation in Vanille followed by the Laura Mercier Candleglow Concealer and Highlighter. To finish the face, she used the Laura Mercier Creme Cheek Colour in Rosebud as this creates a much needed flush of color.
The eyes really stand out in this look. For the eyes, Dubroff moistened a flat eye shadow brush with the Sisley Paris Floral Mist Spray. She mixed the Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Mahogany Brown and the Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Charcoal Grey to create the perfect cool brown, mushroom-like shade. 
After applying the unique shade to Dunst's eyes, she topped the beautiful starlett's upper and lower eyelids with the Laura Mercier Brow Powder Duo in Deep Blonde. "I believe brow powders can serve as great eye shadows," Dubroff shared. 
Dubroff started curling Dunst lashes using the Surratt Beauty Lash Curler. She, then, applied several coats of the Surratt Beauty Pointilliste Mascara in Noir from the base to the middle of her lashes. Then, she lightly filled Dunst's brows with the Zoe Van Jones Brow Shadow Duo in Sandy.
As the celebrity makeup artist continued to embrace the 1930's theme, she applied the Laura Mercier Sheer Lip Colour in Tender Lips. Pressing the product in with her fingers, Dubroff repeated the process before going in with the Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Plumberry to emphasize the cupid's bow.
Congratulations! You have just recreated Kirsten Dunst's makeup look at the 68th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. #Emmys

Get the hair look: Priyanka Chopra at the 2016 Emmy Awards

Primetime Emmy Awards.

As Priyanka Chopra shined on the red carpet at the Microsoft Theater Sunday night, the beautiful actress made a statement in a red, custom-made designer dress. Chopra's makeup was one thing; however, her hair was on another level. Chopra was treated to a very glamorous sleek and chic style courtesy of Castillo, her go-to designer. 
"Since the dress was custom-made, I really wanted the hair to be cohesive with the vision of the designer - sleek and chic," Castillo shared. 
So, is it possible to recreate this hair look at home? Absolutely.
First and foremost, Castillo washed Chopra's hair with the MOP Mixed Greens Shampoo. The celebrity stylist went with a moisturizing shampoo as this works to withstand humidity and heat from styling tools.
As the celebrity stylist continued, they used the MOP Pear Detangler. After applying the product, Castillo combed through Chopra's hair to untangle and eliminate any frizz. Then, Castillo applied the MOP Mixed Greens Leave-In Conditioner. Then, Castillo added a little bit of the MOP Lemongrass Lift. 
Next, the celebrity stylist started to rough blow dry the exquisite beauty's hair using the ghd Air Hairdryer until it is about 80% dry. Then, Castillo brushed through the hair with the ghd Paddle Brush to take out any tangles. 
Taking a tail comb, Castillo, then created a side part. Now taking sections of the hair, the celebrity stylist started to flat brush blow dry the hair straight. Then, went over each section with the ghd Platinum Styler. 
As Castillo was done straightening Chopra's hair, the stylist took a dollop sized amount of the MOP Orange Peel Molding Cream and coated the root to mid shaft of the side of her hair. Then, Castillo brushed the product through with a finishing brush before twisting it behind her ear and down the nape of her neck. 
Castillo continued to repeat this technique and gather hair into a ponytail. As she repeated this same technique, she secured it with a hair bungee and wrapped a section of hair around the bungee to conceal it. 
To finish the hair look, Castillo sprayed the MOP C-System Firm Hair Spray around the hair line and around the ponytail. 
Congratulations! You have just recreated Priyanka Chopra's hair look at the 68th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. #Emmys

You may know her from E! News, but Cat Sadler really stunned the red carpet Sunday evening outside of the Microsoft Theater for the 2016 Emmy Awards. As the E! host looked amazing, there is one thing that stood out more than ever - her beautiful skin. Courtesy of Cinthia Lomeli, Sadler was treated to the ultimate sun-kissed glow using Vita Liberata products. The amazing Diane Madison (Yahoo! and Hollyscoop) as well as the wonderful Leanne Aguilera (Entertainment Tonight) were both treated to the same skin glow routine. 

So, is it possible to recreate this amazing body glow at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, Lomeli treated Sadler's skin with long-lasting hydration to maximize suppleness. She used the Vita Liberata Self Tanning Anti-Age Serum. This product delivers hydration and color that is not only natural, but instantaneous. 
Then, Lomeli grabbed the Vita Liberata Tanning Mitt and started to apply the Vita Liberata Phenomenal Self Tanning Mousse to both Sadler's face and body. 
To finish the glow, she allowed the product to set before applying a few drops of the Vita Liberata 3-in-1 Dry Oil. 
Congratulations! You have just recreated Cat Sadler's sun-kissed glow at the 68th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. #Emmys

What I love about Emily Ratajkowski goes beyond her sultry looks and edgy style. In fact, the free-spirited beauty looked absolutely flawless this evening at the 2016 Emmy Awards. Channeling Farah Pahlavi in more ways than one, the stunning model and up-and-coming actress blew up the red carpet in a fashionably fleek blue dress. And although she looked elegant, what really stood out was her makeup. Courtesy of celebrity makeup artist Hung Vanngo who used LORAC Cosmetics to create her magical look. 

"I wanted to do something that would let her natural beauty and confidence shine through," Vanngo shared. "I took inspiration from her dress and did an eye focus in the same family of blues. To keep it modern, I left the rest of the makeup soft and subtle."
So, is it possible to recreate this makeup look at home? 
First and foremost, Vanngo applied the LORAC POREfection Mattifying Face Primer. Then, he applied the LORAC Sheer POREfection Foundation in PS7. As he continued with the face, he applied the LORAC POREfection Concealer in PC5 before setting the entire face with the LORAC POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder in PF6. 
Moving onto the cheeks, the celebrity makeup artist applied the LORAC Color Source Buildable Blush in Chroma just before applying the LORAC TANtalizer Highlighter & Matte Bronzer Duo. This color combination creates a beautiful healthy glow that is as striking as the woman who wears it. 
This is where the excitement begins. Vanngo started with the eyes by applying the LORAC Behind the Scenes Eyeshadow Primer on the eyes. He, then, lined the Blurred Lines beauty's eyes with the LORAC Front of the Line PRO Eye Pencil in Navy and the LORAC Front of the Line PRO Eye Pencil in Aqua. 
Taking shades to complement Ratajkowski's dress, Vanngo applied various shades from both the LORAC PRO Palette 2 and the LORAC PRO Palette 3. He finished the eyes with several coats of the LORAC PRO Lash Pomade Mascara.
For the brows, the celebrity makeup artist used the LORAC PRO Brow Pencil in Brunette. 
To complete the entire makeup look, he used the LORAC Alter Ego Lip Liner in Secret Angel followed by the LORAC Alter Ego Lipstick in Exhibitionist. 
Congratulations! You have just recreated Emily Ratajkowski's makeup look for the 68th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. #Emmys

Emmy Awards.

Sarah Paulson is nominated this evening for an Emmy. Do I think she will win? Absolutely. She looked absolutely gorgeous today in a very stunning sequined Prada dress. Not only did Paulson blow up the spotlight in more ways than one for the awards this year, but she made a statement on the red carpet. As her hair looked great, her makeup looked absolutely amazing. Courtesy of celebrity makeup Adam Breuchaud and Giorgio Armani Beauty, Paulson was treated to a makeup look which complemented and played into the luxury of her dress. 
The question remains - is it possible to recreate this makeup look at home? Yes.
First and foremost, Breuchard prepped the actress's face with the Giorgio Armani Prima Glow-On Moisturizing Balm and the Giorgio Armani Prima Skin Perfector. Not only will this create instantaneous hydration that is long-lasting, but produce a subtle glow. 
As the celebrity makeup artist continued, he applied the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in the shade 4.5 all over Paulson's face for a fresh looking flow. He, then, added the Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer in 15 by tapping and blending the deep saturated color on her cheeks. This worked to create a soft flush effect. 
Then, Breuchard layered the Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in 9 (or Cold Copper) underneath the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow in 6 to create an almost liquid metal effect. Next, the celebrity makeup artist applied several coats of the new Giorgio Armani Eccentrico Mascara. 
So, what about the lips? The celebrity makeup artist lined the Emmy nominee's lips with the Giorgio Armani Him/Her Lipcare in 1 before applying a thin coat of the Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet in 600. To finish the lips, Breuchard tapped on the Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer in 15 with his finger and applied it to Paulson's lips.
Congratulations! You have just recreated Sarah Paulson's makeup look for the 68th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. #Emmys

Get the makeup look: Julia Louis-Dreyfus at the 2016 Emmy Awards

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is one of the funniest women on the planet. And tonight she is up for lead actress in a comedy series for the fifth time in a row for the hit series Veep. As a front-runner for the Emmy's Awards, Louis-Dreyfus deserves to win tonight for her role. As she looked amazing, her personality really shined on the red carpet this evening. What really stood out was her makeup. Courtesy of her makeup artist Karen Kawahara, Louis-Dreyfus was treated to both skin preparation and makeup using La Prairie products.

So, is it possible to recreate this look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, Kawahara prepped the cute comedian's face using the La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion followed by the La Prairie Skin Caviar Liquid Lift. She, then, applied a drop of the La Prairie Essence of Skin Caviar Eye Complex on each eye lid as a base. As she continued, she moisturized Louis-Dreyfus' skin with the La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Cream.

Now, Kawahara started on the makeup portion of the look. First, she applied the La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation SPF15 in Warm Linen. She applied this product all over Louis-Dreyfus' face, but avoided the eye area. As she continued, she applied the La Prairie Concealer Brightening Eye Treatment to the eyelids followed by a dab of the La Prairie Light Fantastic Cellular Concealer.

"I like to apply concealer after the eyes are done so if I need to clean up any powder from the shadows, I can," Kawahara shared.

Taking the La Prairie Luxe Brow Liner Automatique in Brun, the celebrity makeup artist began to fill in the funny actress's brows. She brushed her eyebrows with the brush on the end, as this works to shape them and keep them looking natural.

Next, Kawahara began shaping the actress's eyes with the La Prairie Luxe Eyeliner Automatique in Brun. She applied this product around the entire eye. Taking a brush and blending it out, Kawahara applied the La Prairie Cellular Treatment Eye Colour Ensemble in Les Orchidees. Taking the mauve color, she applied this all over Louis-Dreyfus' eyelids. Then, she applied the dark braun shadow in Les Brunes, smudging this product over the eyeliner.

"This will give more depth, but is still softer than an eyeliner look," Kawahara added.

The celebrity makeup artist applied the La Prairie Cellular Treatment Mascara Instant Curl in Noir to the cute comedian's lashes. This works to both darken and thicken the lashes. Then, Kawahara added the final touch by applying the La Prairie Luxe Eyeliner Automatic in Brun to inside the eye.

Now, going back under the eye, Kawahara started swiping the La Prairie Concealer Brightening Eye Treatment under the Veep star's eye to both brighten and smooth the under-eye area. "I also like to sweep the cheek bones for a highlight," the celebrity makeup artist shared.

Taking a brush, the celebrity makeup artist dabbed into the La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Blush in Rose Glow. Using a circular motion over the cheek bones and towards the ear, Kawahara made Louis-Dreyfus' cheeks look like they were flushed.

To complete the look, she lined the lips with the La Prairie Cellular Luxe Lip Liner in Nude. Blending out the product with a brush, she finished the lips with the La Prairie Cellular Luxe Lip Colour in Tawny.

Congratulations. You have just recreated Julia Louis-Dreyfus' makeup look at the 68th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. #Emmys

Get the hair look: Julia Louis-Dreyfus at the 2016 Emmy Awards

Julia Louis-Dreyfus stunned the red carpet Sunday evening in a beautiful and chic Carolina Herrara gown. As the Veep star is up for an Emmy tonight, we can only hope the cute comedian takes home the award tonight. As her makeup really stood out, her hair did too. In fact, her hair really complemented her entire outfit. Celebrity stylist Matthew Monzon for StriVectin Hair teamed up with the Seinfield alumni for an easy, playful with a hint of whimsy style which brought the entire look together.

"Upon seeing the gorgeous Carolina Herrara gown, as a collective we decided the hair needed to be somewhat easy, playful and with a bit of whimsy. We went with Hollywood glamour, but loosened up to make it feel a bit more modern," Monzon shared.

So, is it possible to recreate this hair look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, Monzon shampooed the funny beauty's hair with the StriVectin HAIR Color Care Shampoo and the StriVectin HAIR Color Care Conditioner. Then, he sprayed the StriVectin HAIR Max Volume Root Lifting Spray directly to Louis-Dreyfus's roots. As he continued, he applied the StriVectin HAIR Ultimate Restore Densifying Foaming Treatment through the mid-shafts and ends using a wide-toothed comb.

As the celebrity stylist continued with the hair look, he began blow drying Louis-Dreyfus' locks using his fingers. This works to create volume and add a little lift. He finished off the ends of the hair with a round brush. Now, taking a one inch curling iron Monzon began to wrap various sections of her hair around the iron in alternating directions. As the sections ranged from 1 to 1.25 inches, the curls were slightly touseled and treated accordingly.

To finish the hair look, Monzon applied the StriVectin HAIR Color Care Vibrancy Booster to Louis-Dreyfus' hair from the mid-shaft all of the way through the ends. As the celebrity stylist gathered a quarter size amount, he used his hands to apply the product. This creates a shiny finish that is very much needed.

Congratulations! You have just recreated the Julia Louis-Dreyfus's hair look at the 68th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. #Emmys

Get the makeup look: David Koma at LFW SS'17

When David Koma debuted the Spring/Summer collection for 2017 at London Fashion Week, his fashions depict a story of modern royalty that is pure with a multi-dimensional side. With an emphasis on both black and white, the David Koma collection tells a story. Recently, the models for David Koma teamed up with the NARS UK Makeup Ambassador Andrew Gallimore for a makeup look to complement the fashion.

"Radiant Royalty," Gallimore shared.

So, is it possible to recreate this makeup look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, the NARS UK Makeup Ambassador prepped the models skin. He used the NARSskin Multi-Action Toner followed by the NARSskin Luminous Moisture Cream. He, then, applied the NARSskin Total Replenishing Eye Cream.

As he continued with the face, he applied the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer followed by the new NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer. As this product is new and due to launch in Spring of 2017, an amazing alternative is the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. He, then, applied the NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder to finish the face.

For the cheeks, Gallimore applied some of the new NARS Radiance Primer with SPF 35. As this is a new product for 2017, try using the NARS Light Optimizing Primer until then. He, then, applied the NARS Liquid Bronzer in Laguna. To add some color, the wonderful makeup artist used the NARS Lipstick in Breaking Free. And as this product unavailable until 2017, try using the NARS Audacious Lipstick in Juliette as this is a great alternative.

So, what about the eyes? He lined the models eyes with the NARS Velvet Eyeliner in Las Pozas. Then, Gallimore curled the models lashes using the NARS Eyelash Curler.

To finish the entire makeup look, Gallimore applied the NARS Pure Sheer Lip Treatment in Bianca to the lips. This product has an SPF, so it works to hydrate as well as protect the lips.

Congratulations! You have just recreated the makeup look for the David Koma show at London Fashion Week. #LFW

Get the makeup look: Marc Jacobs at NYFW SS'17

show at NYFW.

Marc Jacobs is one of the most creative and innovative minds in all of fashion. He is one of the few designers in the world that fearless and isn't afraid to do things outside of the box. When he debuted his Spring/Summer collection for 2017 at New York Fashion Week recently, the iconic fashion designer wasn't afraid to challenge status quo by creating a collection filled with color and culture. As the designs were unique, the models hair made quite a statement. However, the makeup slayed and really brought the entire looks together. In fact, the models for the Marc Jacobs show teamed up with the one and only Francois Nars, the founder and creative director of NARS Cosmetics for six unique looks to complement the fashion. 
"We matched the color of the eye makeup to the clothes and hair and created six different beauty looks using pastel colors. Lashes were applied to help define the eye, the face was kept clean with a little makeup and the brows were brushed up and natural," Nars shared. 
So, is it possible to recreate these amazing looks at home? Absolutely.
First and foremost, Nars prepped the models skin. He applied the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. If you are searching for an outstanding moisturizer with a hint of color, I highly recommend this one. He, then, applied the NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer. As this product is due to launch in Spring of 2017, the perfect alternative would be the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. This product is one of my favorite beauty essentials right now. The amazing makeup artist finished the face with the NARS Soft Velvet Loose Powder. 
For the first look, Nars decided to go with purple, as this is one of the shades that complements the actual clothes and hair. He used the NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Desdemona and in Phoebe. 
For the second look, the NARS creative director and founder wanted to create a look with pink. Like the purple shade, the pink is one of the shades of the designs. Nars used the NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Desdemona, Phoebe and in Callisto. 
For the third look, the celebrity makeup artist decided to create a look using Silver. Silver is a haute transitional shade and really works for every season. For this look, he used the NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Lysithea and in Interstellar. 
For the fourth look, Francois took a step outside of the box and decided to use green. He applied the right side of the NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Earth Angel followed by the NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Tarvos. 
For the fifth look, Nars emphasized in using blue shades, as these shades truly complement the clothing and the hair for the Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2017. For this look, he used the NARS Velvet Shadow Stick in Grande-Large. As this product is not due out until Spring of 2017, an amazing alternative for now would be the NARS Larger Than Life Eyeliner in Khao San Road. He, then used the left side of the NARS Duo Eyeshadow.
And for the final look, the sixth look, he heavily embraced copper. The world-renowned makeup artist used the NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Mediteranee followed by the NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Isolde and the NARS Matte Eyeshadow in Persia. 
To finish the look, Nars used the NARS Lip Gloss in Triple X.

Get the makeup look: Zero+Maria Cornejo at NYFW SS'17

One of the thing that I love most about fashion week is the originality. As the clothing and acesssories look beautiful, the models do too. And as the clothing depicts a sense of pure imagination, their creators are bold and care-free when creating their fashion. In the case of Zero+Maria Cornejo, the collection was very soft, as the models were wearing white and did not wear any shoes on the runway. As the pieces were pure, the makeup really complemented the entire show. Courtesy of Dick Page, Shiseido's Artistic Director the models were treated to a very gentle and easy-looking makeup look.

"Maria's collection this season was very pure. The models were barefoot on the runway and wore only white; because of this. I created a 'melted' makeup look that was very gentle and easy-looking," Page shared. "I wanted to complement the clothing with a neutral yet "scruffy" look, which was inspired by a photograph of Charlotte Rampling taken by Arthur Elgort featuring a smudged glossy eye and messy hair."


So, is it possible to recreate this makeup look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, Page prepped the models faces and emphasized on using moisturizer for a natural "no makeup" skin look. Shiseido's Artistic Director created a healthy, natural glow using an unique blend of the Shiseido Rouge Rouge in Sweet Desire and the Shiseido Rouge Rouge in Rose Crush. Page applied this as a stain to the apples of the cheeks and the bridge of the nose using a blush brush.

For the eyes, Page used the Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Leather. This was painted close to the top of the models' top and bottom lash lines. This product was also applied with a fluffy brush to blend the bottom liner and the top liner up onto the eyelid. Then, Page used his fingers to "mess up" the lower lash line to create a less perfect yet pristine look. To complete the eyes, Page used the Shiseido Benefiance Full Correction Lip Treatment to slightly melt the makeup.

As Page continued, he used the Shiseido Eyebrow Styling Compact in Deep Brown on the models' brows. He wanted to both strengthen and fill the brows for a natural look.

And like the face, the lips were also kept soft and natural. Page finished the look by using the Shiseido Benefiance Full Correction Lip Treatment.

Congratulations! You have just recreated the makeup look for the Zero+Maria Cornejo at New York Fashion Week. #ShiseidoFW #NYFW

Get the hair look: Reese Witherspoon at the Sing premiere

Reese Witherspoon is one of the greatest actresses ever. This award-winning beauty graced the red carpet for the premiere of her new animated movie "Sing" at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this evening. Witherspoon looked absolutely radiant with a modernized, timeless off-the-shoulder dress. As her makeup looked natural, her hair really stole the spotlight and brought the entire look to life. With effortless volume, the hair look was created courtesy of Nexxus celebrity stylist Lona Vigi.

"Since it was a kids movie premiere during the day, Reese and I decided to keep her hair down, flowy and fun for the occasion, and to flawlessly complement her off-the-shoulder dress," Vigi shared.

So, is it possible to recreate this hair look at home? Yes.

First and foremost, Vigi started with towel dried hair. She applied a palm sized amount of the Nexxus New York Salon Care Mousse Plus Volumizing Foam to Witherspoon's hair. Working from the roots to the ends, this product adds volume and supports the style.

As Vigi continued, she created a deep side part. Then, she divided the hair into sections. Taking a medium-sized round brush, the Nexxus celebrity stylist started blow drying Witherspoon's hair. Once dried, Vigi took a double barrel iron and proceeded to add curls. She alternated with a 1 and a half curling iron every couple of curls to create effortless, undone waves.

To finish the look, she sprayed the Nexxus New York Salon Care Comb Thru Finishing Mist generously all over the style.

Congratulations! You have just recreated Reese Witherspoon's hair look for the Sing premiere.

Get the makeup look: Alexander Wang at NYFW SS'17

As New York Fashion Week continues, so does the anticipated level of excitement in the big apple. As the city that never sleeps holds this internationally known event, we can expect the unexpected. Alexander Wang debuted his Spring and Summer 2017 collection with lots of white and pure pieces with some minor shades of black. As everything was basically beautiful, the designs truly depict a story that really embraces the Spring and Summer season. The models' hair looked amazing, but the makeup really brought the entire looks together. The models for the show teamed up with makeup artist Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics.

"The beauty inspiration is surfer beach girl. It's that look and natural color that someone gets if their skin has been kissed by the sun," Kendal shared.

So, is it possible to recreate this makeup look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, Kendal prepped the face using the NARSskin Luminous Moisture Cream. She, then used the NARSskin Total Replenishing Eye Cream. When it comes to any kind of show, it is important that the skin remain hydrated.

As Kendal continued, she applied the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation followed by the NARS Stick Concealer. The skin was left modestly natural, so the NARS makeup artist used the NARS Multiple in Cappadoce, Altai, Vientiane, and Portofino.


To finish the look, Kendal used the NARS Stick Concealer on the lips.

Congratulations! You have just recreated the makeup look for the Alexander Wang show at New York Fashion Week. #NYFW
