CELEBRITY SPOTLIGHT: AMA’s 2015 – Selena Gomez

Did anyone else get a vampy feel from Selena Gomez at the AMA’s?

We did!

She looked amazing on the red carpet with a sunset, smoky eye to complement her red dress.

Her copper, red infused eye makeup paired with hazel contacts drew us in and left us in awe.

#GETTHELOOK

Step 1 Prime eyelids. Using a brightening primer like this one will help add dimension to the eye.

Step 2 Light cream color eye shadow set the crease and brow bone area. We like Jane Iredale’s Oyster.

Step 3 Blend into your crease a copper eye shadow. Jane Iredale’s Triple Eyeshadow – Triple Cognac has shades that can be used. Be sure to focus on the outer area and winging it outward.

Step 4 Blend the edges with a clean brush.

Step 5 Use a red shadow to build definition on top of the copper hue. We like the darker shade in TIGI Cosmetics – Flawless.

Step 6 On the lid, layer another red shade. You can play with the types of reds you would like to use. In Selena’s look, there are many red-wine colors used. Youngblood in Bordeaux can be used.

Step 7 Make sure all the shadows are blended. Use the same shadow as in Step 6 to line the lower lash line. Line the inside of the lower lash line with a burgundy eyeliner or black if preferred.

Step 8 Use a volumizing mascara and voila!

PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: Advanced Active Radiance Serum from MURAD

262d3b95964c66275c5a8ea4d144b211

You can fight fine lines and wrinkles all day long, but uneven skin tone is actually the number one indicator of age. And unless you’ve successfully shunned the sun your entire life, dark spots will eventually be a concern. On the bright side, we have a ton of complexion-perfecting products for you! Whether you have a collection of brown spots invading your forehead or you’re just looking to get in front of the issue, there’s a skin-brightening solution for you. Vitamin C is an antioxidant with numerous anti-aging benefits. It boosts collagen and elastin production, while inhibiting tryosinase, an enzyme involved in melanin production. Vitamin C is well tolerated in most people, but the one drawback is that, like all antioxidants, it’s highly unstable. Meaning, it loses effectiveness when exposed to light, heat, and air. So store your products in a cool, dry place, and pick ones that have a pump delivery system (like the Advanced Active Radiance Serum from Murad) opposed to squeeze tube, which allows air to creep in.

PILLOW TALK: BEACH WAVES WITHOUT THE HEAT

98543904eb086d991f95f5b2f193e238

When we think of our ideal sleeping environment, we picture a soft down comforter, an array of fluffy pillows, and perhaps some soothing flute music to lull us to sleep. Nowhere in this scenario does sopping wet hair make an appearance—but in real life, it just might. If you shower at night and are sick of blow-drying before bed, there’s hope yet. Here’s some advice on how to sleep on damp strands and wake up with beachy waves.

Start by flipping your head upside down—it dries faster this way—and blasting it with a hairdryer until it’s damp, not wet. Then, twist your hair into four loose buns (secured with scrunchies, of course), and call it a night. (A single bun will give you a looser wave.) Or, if you want more of a rock ‘n roll look, you can braid instead of twist you hair. We recommend a loose French braid, starting just behind the front layers of your head.

Whatever you do, remember to keep it loose and messy. “Your inability to make a perfect braid or perfect curl is working in your favor when you’re styling before bed. It’s what makes the final outcome look cool—don’t worry about making it look fancy or perfect.

SPOTLIGHT: GOLDEN GLOBE HAIR – SIENNA MILLER

2015-golden-globes-beauty-sienna-miller

When Sienna Miller stormed onto the red carpet at Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards it wasn’t just her plunging Miu Miu frock that has us obsessed! It was her beautiful, sweeping hairstyle. This look is youthful, edgy and seemingly low-maitenance. While we’re guessing Sienna had a team of hair & make-up artists to get her red-carpet ready, we believe you can easily recreate this look at home.

Sienna-Miller-551522

Start by blow drying with volume throughout, using a medium sized curling iron to create a bend from the mid-length to the ends of the hair

Finish by using texturizing spray to create the perfectly disheveled edge. Mist all over whilst running your hands throughout.
