2015 Met Ball Beauty

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?

Get the look: Emma Stone's SAG Awards Makeup

21st Annual SAG Awards

Emma Stone’s red lip was everything at last night’s SAG Awards. Her tuxedo inspired look really stole the spotlight along with that sleek ponytail and all black ensemble. Lucky for us (and our readers), we got the inside scoop on what products were actually used to achieve Emma’s total beauty look…red lip colour included!

Rachel Goodwin (Makeup Artist to Emma Stone),was inspired by the stars beautifully juxtaposed tuxedo jacket and feminine, sheer gown by Dior Couture. She used her lip as the focal point creating an iconic and empowered look for Emma which was influenced by the women of the late ’70s photographed by Helmut Newton, with a nod to a French editorial feel.

 Goodwin (@rachel_goodwin) recently posted this instagram below showing the Helmut Newton photos that inspired the look.


Using a combination of REVLON and CHANEL beauty products, Rachel kept Emma’s lids minimal with  copper eyeshadow and a defined lash line.


Emma’s lips certainly made a powerful statement with her red lip and nails being the only colour. Rachel lined lips with CHANEL Lip Pencil in Rouge Profound and then applied REVLON Ultra HD Lipstick in HD Gladiolus. The effect wasn’t glossy, but wasn’t matte- it had a creamy, luxe feeling.



When applying red lipstick use a lip pencil (either colourless or a matching colour) all over to prevent feathering, define lips and provide extra long wear.


Goodwin rimmed Emma’s eyes with REVLON ColorStay Eyeliner in Black followed by a copper eyeshadow CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Lasting Luminous EyeShadow in Mirage and a few coats (for extra impact) of CHANEL Le Volume de Chanel in Noir and of course some faux lashes to bump up her lash-line for photos.


Skin was prepped with CHANEL Hydra Beauty Micro Serum followed by REVLON PhotoReady Prime + Anti Shine Balm.  That flawless complexion was achieved with CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua followed by a little highlighting and contouring with CHANEL Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in N0 10 and N0 20.

Did you love Emma Stone’s look as much as we did?

Kendall said in an earlier interview “I grew up using Estee Lauder. I saw my mom using it when I was a kid.” “For me to grow up with it, and then to be working with them now, it’s so incredible.”


When asked by fellow Estee Lauder spokesmodel Joan Smalls, how to get the perfect selfie. Kendall explained;

“Lighting is a big thing. If you’re not in the right light it just won’t work. I’m not into using too many filters, either. I like to keep it pretty natural — or black and white is always cool. But above all, you have to know your face: everybody has their good side. And practice! Practice makes perfect.”

Best Beauty from the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards

The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards took place in Brooklyn, New York last night. I am sure we all observed a few extraordinary celebrity occurances at the awards.  From Gaga’s opener, to Miley’s raunchy (and inappropriate) performance, to JT stealing the show with his 20 minute medley – we were definitely left entertained to say the least. Also including the rumoured and highly anticipated *NSYNC reunion followed by Katy Perry closing the show under the Brooklyn Bridge with her new single “Roar”. Lastly, Taylor Swift was seemingly caught telling ex-boyfriend Harry Styles to “shut the f**k up” at the Awards.  Indeed, this year’s VMA’s was definitely one to make headlines. But, of course, despite all the uproar, we did see some beauty trends that were definitely noteworthy!

Here are our favourite Beauty looks from the red carpet.


Katy Perry let her natural beauty shine through with a sleek high pony, dewy skin. We are obsessed with her perfectly groomed brows that tie this look together.


Taylor played up on an old Hollywood glam look with a cherry lip and pinned up curls. We love how she portrays a sexy look and still keeps it classy.


Selena shows us a perfect example of how you can play up both eyes and lips without being over the top. She is right on trend with her cat eye and berry lip.  Also, her poise and confidence is definitely very admirable.


Lady Gaga actually had normal, voluminous hair for a few minutes last night! I don’t think she has ever rocked quite a normal hairdo! We loved her bouncy curls and perfectly contoured cheekbone when she was photographed after congratulating One Direction.


Talk about the most gorgeous bronze skin tone! Ciara’s skin glowed as she posed for the camera on the red carpet.  And it wasn’t just her face – the dress she wore gave us a good clue that her sunkiss glow naturally encompasses her entire body!
