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.

Get the look: Selena Gomez at the 2014 American Music Awards


Screen Shot 2014-12-16 at 2.22.22 PM

Selena Gomez looked SO good while preforming her newest single “The Heart wants what it wants” at the 2014 American Music Award’s.

For her walk down the red carpet, Selena wore her hair in a low bun and a bold rep lip to match her dangling statement earrings. For her face, Makeup artist Jake Bailey used NYX’s Illuminator in Chaotic to highlight parts of her face like her cheekbones. Jake used the NYX Dream Catcher Palette in Dusk Till Dawn on her eyes and created a beautiful bronze haze and finished it off with a sophisticated lip using NYX Simply Red Lip Cream pencil in Leading Lady.

For her performance, Selena kept the same makeup on but switching her lip colour to match her light nude-pink dress. She changed her hair from up to down with long extensions in and her hair with light curls and two front pieces clipped up.

2013 Teen Choice Awards – Best Beauty looks.

We loved seeing the Young Hollywood starlets emphasizing their best feature’s with such fresh-faced looks at this year’s Teen Choice Awards. Here are a few of our favourite Beauty looks from the Blue Carpet.

Lucy-Hale-Houghton-2013-Teen-Choice-Awards-hair-and-makeup-600x787

Teen Choice Awards host, Lucy Hale  definitely plays up on the “less is more” phrase.  We both agree that it’s what’s under her makeup that’s making this look really pop.

Get the look:

Skin: Preparation is everything. Get in the routine of proper cleansing and moisturizing. Also, don’t forget to exfoliate at least twice a week to slough off any dead skin cells and let your skin reveal it’s healthy glow.

To smooth the skin start by applying a primer (we like Laura Mercier). Apply a  tinted moisturizer for light and sheer coverage followed by a light dusting of loose powder. Finish the look with a spritz of  hydration mist. This will keep skin healthy and flawless all day/night long.

Hair: Start by parting hair with a tail comb (follow the arch point of your brow), take one inch sections of hair and wrap around a curling rod directing pieces away from your face. After curling set with a touchable spray such as Healthy Sexy hair spray – soy touchable.

Crystal-Reed-in-Carolina-Herrera-2013-Teen-Choice-Awards-4-600x782

 We’re loving Crystal Reed’s  voluminous blow out, bare face with a bolder brow and pop of color on the lips. A perfect pairing with this black and white patterned CH Carolina Herrera pant suit.

Get the look:

Brows: Try Dior’s Brow Styler in Universal Brown. Apply in light strokes and comb through to intensity.

Lips: Try NARS semi matte  in Jungle Red

Hair: For voluminous locks like Crystal’s, wash hair with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner, followed by a few drops of hair oil to protect, soften and boost shine.  Blow dry tresses and finish off by sprinkling Kevin Murphy Powder Puff Volumizing Powder  at the roots to create volume and texture. Remember less is more!

Miley+Cyrus+Teen+Choice+Awards+2013+Press+rFdogscsn0sl

This girl can rock any look but we particularly loved Miley’s gorgeous contoured cheeks, bold eyes and soft peachy lip. As for her hair — it’s growing on us … we think 😉

Get the look:

Cheeks: For Miley’s matte contoured bronzer try Tarte’s Amazonian clay matte mineral bronzer with Glo Minerals angled blush brush. This dense angled brush will give you that sharp chiseled cheekbone look.

Eyeliner: Miley loves “tight lining” (a technique used under the lash line for a natural but defined look). This is best achieved with a soft pencil liner such as,  Mac’s ‘Engraved’ black eyeliner on the top and bottom lash line and slightly smoke it out with a smudge brush.

Lips: We suggest Mac’s ‘Naked’ lipliner with Chanel’s 114 PRÉCIEUSE lipstick for a soft finish.

Unknown-7

Straight hair is making a comeback! Selena’s sleek hair was paired with a subtle cat eye and light pink lip which complimented her turquoise Neil Lane earrings and sexy green dress perfectly.

Get the look:

Eyes: For Selena’s dramatic eyes line the entire upper lash-line with a black creme liner such as Tarte’s Amazonian clay Waterproof liner in black

Skin: Warm up your face with a bronzer. Contouring your cheeks and temples for a little added definition. Try NARS bronzer in Laguna.

Lastly, we just had to add a link to Ashton Kutcher’s acceptance speech. If you haven’t seen it, click the link and take a few minutes to watch it. Very inspiring and not one to miss.
