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?

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.

Contouring then strobing, now baking?
The makeup world is continuously evolving and we are absolutely amazed at this revived trend.
Yes – revived. The drag queen community has been using the baking technique to help set heavy stage makeup and it works – makeup is always flawless.
Baking involves using your body heat to help set makeup resulting in a smooth, crease-less finish. Even Kim Kardashian-West’s makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic uses this technique!
The trick involves layering setting powder thickly and allowing it to “cook” into your foundation and concealer. As shown in the photo from Heidi Hamoud’s YouTube tutorial, it helps highlight the covered areas – underneath eyes, forehead and chin. The result is a flawless finish with contoured cheeks.
So how do we begin?
1. Apply moisturizer, primer, and foundation. This method can be drying so the moisturizer is extremely important. You may also want to include an eye moisturizer to help hydrate the area as this method does focus on the eye area.
2. Apply concealer under the eyes. Dab on from the apples of your cheeks towards your temples. Keep going towards the hairline for some serious contour. Blend in with a damp makeup sponge.
3. Use translucent powder to set the base of the makeup.
4. To “bake” or “cook your makeup, use a wedge sponge and dampen it with a setting spray or facial mist. Then dip the sponge into the translucent powder used in Step 3 and apply it generously under eyes, chin, jawline and middle of forehead. Let it bake anywhere from 5-30 minutes. We suggest 10 minutes for great results but if you have time, go for all 30!
5. Dust off the powder with a fluffy brush. If you want to blend any rough edges, apply pressed powder on the brush and use that to dust off the translucent powder.
We love how this makeup look leaves our makeup look flawless.
