The 2015 Met Ball was held Monday in New York. This years theme was China: Through the Looking Glass. Here are some stand out beauty looks (and products) from the night.
Rihanna’s gown and stunning headpiece were perfectly complimented by her Makeup. Mylah Morales created her look with an Asian-inspired color palette (lots of pinks) and used blush on both her eyes and lips. The focus of the look were her bold brows. She used Diorshow Brow Styler (one of our faves) to define and groom.
Selena Gomez went for a sexy and sophisticated look with a sleek updo, dark red lips, a smokey cat eye and lots of lashes to really emphasize the drama.
Kendall Jenner – the face of Estee Lauder – showed up with defined brows, dewy skin and a sleek wing liner. To achieve the wing, Kendall’s makeup artist used Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Zero-Smudge Liquid Eyeliner in Black and defined her long lashes with Little Black Primer. To create those bold brows, the Automatic Brow Pencil was applied and finished off with a pink pout by applying Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Insatiable Ivory all over her lips.
Cara Delevingne made a statement with her full sleeve faux body art, nude lips and some seriously sexy smokey eyes.
All hail the Queen Bee – Beyoncé – when it comes to any appearance, her makeup is always flawless and coordinates with the clothes she wears. This year at the 2015 Met Ball, Beyoncé wore only affordable makeup that you can get at your nearest drug store… and yes, we do mean L’Oreal!
To create Beyonce’s mod eye, her makeup artist used a mix of L’Oreal Paris Infallible Eye Shadows in Endless Sea and Infinite Sky ($8.00) which stood out beautifully against her sun kissed skin. She finished off the look with the Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara in black.
Who were your favourite looks at this years Met Ball?
Summer is a great time to get creative with nail designs. Adding a bit of glitter of different colours will add a whole new dimension to your outfit. That’s why Dior has created a translucent grenadine-coloured topcoat that adds sheens of tie-dye colouring to your nails.
You can apply the topcoat to your bare nails or on top of a nail polish. We recommend pairing it with the Dior Vernis it-shades in ‘ sunwashed’ or ‘sunkissed’ both creating the perfect pair. We also love applying it to bare nails because it enhances the natural pink of the nail plus adding a wave of ultra-shiny, translucent colours.
Summer is just around the corner so get your bright colours out and have fun painting!
Dry shampoo is a must have when it comes to 2nd day hair or when you want to add more volume to the roots for styling and updos. One of our favourite’s is Batiste – the #1 selling dry shampoo in Canada- has quickly become a staple in our kits for clients or in our personal collection for us wherever we go.
Batiste recently partnered up with celebrity Hair and Makeup artist Paul Venoit (you may remember him from the Canadian shows such as Look–A–Like and Canada’s Next Top Model). Paul’s vibrant personality and years of experience, make him the perfect fit to act as a brand ambassador for Batiste—the fun and playful dry shampoo brand, hailing from the UK.
Batiste is a fun and playful dry shampoo brand, hailing from the UK. We love it because it gives you a break from washing and blow-drying your hair, which can cause breakage and fade professional colouring. The starch-based product with a no water-needed formula is suitable for every hair type and now has colored tones to match your hair. The dry shampoos come in normal (white), light, medium and dark shades. Just a quick spray on each side of your hair towards to roots will remove oils, leaving the hair clean and fresh.
Shake your can of Batiste vigorously, separate hair into sections and spray into roots in quick short sprays holding can 10-12 inches away from hair. Leave for a few moments and massage through. Brush out any excess. For extra texture and body don’t brush out!
The range of Batiste dry shampoos are endless and you really can’t go wrong with any. If you haven’t tried them yet, we really encourage that you do.
Batiste dry shampoo is available at drug stores like Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall and Walmart.
