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

Beauty transformations are just that – a thing of beauty. We love seeing celebrities evolve in their style – whether it be hair or makeup or attire.
Known for her signature style of long curls and dark lips, Lorde surprised everyone on the red carpet for CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards.
We love the 18-year-old’s big curls, and she rocks it so well, but it’s great to see her experiment with new looks.
The “Royals” singer looked uber-sophisticated. Not only was her hair sleeker, but she had cut her long locks! A glossy hairstyle matched with demure makeup, the young star nailed the red carpet.
So how do you get this sleek do when you have voluminous curls?
- Begin with a treatment mask. Curls mask any hair damage really well so a hair mask will help get your hair in better shape. We suggest TIGI Bed Head Urban Antidotes Recovery Mask to give your locks moisture and help repair any damage.
- Towel dry hair gently. Follow with a heat protectant to shield hair from damage.
- Section off hair and blow dry with a round brush. We love Bio Ionic’s newest hair dryer!
- After blow drying comes flat ironing. If your hair soaks up product quickly, we suggest adding another does of heat protection or using another hair oil. Joico’s Protect and Shine Serum can be used during ironing and as a final step to leave it sleek and shiny.

It’s Hunger Games season and we couldn’t be happier.
To promote the last movie of the franchise, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, Jennifer Lawrence and her co-stars have been traveling around the world for the premieres and we are loving the beauty looks.
The revealing Dior dress was paired with a modest but glamorous makeup look at the London premiere.
Celebrity makeup artist Jillian Dempsey made her lips the focus. With a mauve-like, taupe shade for Lawrence’s lips, it helped play up the color specks on the Dior dress. Not to mention that the dusty, rosy shade is one of this fall season’s best trends. Beauty Tip: If you want to make the color more intense, layer it on.
Lawrence also had a flawless face – concealer for the eye area and a pressed powder did the job.
Dempsey made her eye makeup subtle to not lose focus from the lips. Using a mixture of gold, bronze, and purple shadows and finishing with dramatic lashes.

Even the staff that is low maintenance on makeup during the week use concealer religiously.
But which color should you use? The editors at TheBeautyPlace.com have categorized the issues by color – we got you covered!
Match Your Skin Tone
Use a concealer that matches your skin tone to conceal blemishes.
Green concealers are great for those that battle dermatitis, rosacea or even a mild sunburn. By using it after priming and before applying foundation, it helps conceal redness triggered by any of these skin conditions.
Also to be applied after priming skin and before foundation, lavender concealers helps neutralize sallow, yellow tones to brighten skin’s appearance.
Another complexion brightener, yellow concealers helps soften signs of redness while adding warmth to the skin.
Ideal for dark circles – hands down. (We also have heard about a red lipstick trick to conceal dark circles, so this totally makes sense!) Use it especially to remove blue or gray undertones. We wouldn’t use it anywhere else on the face though so keep it to the area to avoid any skin blotchiness.
Do you have any other suggestions for concealers? #WeWantToKnow
Beauty Tip: Double your matching skin tone concealer as a primer for eyelids and lips if needed.
