CELEBRITY SPOTLIGHT: MET GALA 2015 BEAUTY LOOK – JESSICA CHASTAIN

Jec-s

The Met Gala, also known as the Met Ball,  is one of the most awaited events of the year. Marking the grand opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute annual fashion exhibit, attendees follow the theme in fashion and beauty looks making this one of the headlining events that set trends in our beauty world.

One of our favorite looks reminded us of Hollywood Glamour. Elegant and understated, Jessica Chastain’s natural beauty was enhanced with her look.

#GETTHELOOKjessica-chastain-met-gala-2015

  1. Makeup artist Kristofer Buckle, a frequent MUA for Chastain, focused on accenting the gold sequins of her gown by using gold and taupe eye shadow shades to create a warm, smokey eye. Use shades of gold at the inner corner and center of the eye. Use the taupe eye shadow to blend at the outer corner and lightly across the crease.
  2. Coral blush was used to add warmth to her cheeks and enhance her radiant complexion. When applying bright blush colors, use a fluffy brush and a light hand to not overdo it.
  3. Finish the look with a red, matte lipstick

HOT, HOT, HOT: SKINCARE IN HUMID CLIMATES

Here in sunny south Florida, we have been experiencing high heat and high humidity this past week. This means trouble for clear complexions – high humidity brings the onslaught of more oil and the potential of frequent breakouts and blemishes.

Unlike winter skincare where the focus is on heavy moisturizing so skin doesn’t dry out, humidity requires different skincare tactics. With summer around the corner, it’s better to be prepared!

To achieve red carpet worthy, glowing skin like the celebrities had at the Latin Billboard Music Awards this past Thursday, use these tips:

Acid Is Good

Humidity causes sweat to sit on skin longer leading to clogged pores and breakouts if not cleansed well. Using a skin cleanser with alpha or beta hydroxy acids will ensure that your skin is exfoliated and that built up oil in the pores are dissolved. Pick a cleanser with light amounts of alpha or beta hydroxy acids as too much may dry out skin leading to more breakouts.

Lightweight Is The Right Way

Humidity itself feels heavy on skin but don’t forego the moisturizer to avoid oiliness! Instead, opt for a lightweight moisturizer  that is not formulated with any heavy oils (i.e. macadamia nut oil or argan oil).  For sunscreen protection, water-based sunscreens will absorb faster leaving less residue on your skin. We like La Roche Posay Anthelios 30 Cooling Water-Lotion Sunscreen.

Hands Off!

This one is very important, year round, in all types of weather – hands off. Try to avoid touching your face, leaning on your hands, holding your chin, etc. Your face is already dealing with perspiration from the heat and humidity and touching your face can lead to the transfer of bacteria and grime from your hands.
