Beauty Inspiration: Blair Waldorf’s Wedding Makeup

My most embarrassing secret? I watch Gossip Girl…

Why did even start watching it? To look at the makeup and clothes!

But then I got sucked in and, although I liked only the first two seasons, I still watch it because of the beautiful makeup and clothes but now also for Chuck and Blair (can’t believe I am even writing this).

I also love Leighton Meester, she is such a beauty!

I have already written a post about Gossip Girl and Chanel Makeup but the reason why I am writing this one is to share the gorgeous makeup look Blair wore to her wedding!

I am totally in love with whole look and the details:

  • the blue based glossy pink lips, such colour looks amazing on Blair, and it’s my favourite!
  • pink eye shadows with the crease contouring (there is a photo below), eye liner and some natural looking false lashes; made her eyes look defined but nothing dramatic, perfect for the wedding day!
  • I also like how the Make-Up Artists used the

Get The Look: Zooey Deschanel and Christina Hendricks at Emmy’s 2012

I have the details about how you can re-create the looks of Zooey Deschanel and Christina Hendricks at Emmy’s 2012 which were created with Hourglass Cosmetics.

 Makeup by Vanessa Scali

“I was inspired by the soft, feminine look of the dress (Christian Siriano) and its cool, shimmery neutral color against her skin. I kept her face soft and romantic, but added contrast and strength with a bold lip color.”

Complexion

Vanessa began by using Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum.  She then applied Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Shell – the formula is effortless to apply and made her skin look natural and flawless. Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer was applied wherever necessary.

 Cheeks

Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain in Flush was applied to the apples of the cheeks blending outward to the cheekbones.

Eyes

For definition and intensity, she lined her eyes with Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Liner in Ebony at the base of the lashes and on the inside top rim of the eye.

Using the lighter shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy, she swept the color from the lash line to the eye brow. Then, she used a touch of the deeper shade blending it well, from the lash line to just above the crease and swept past the natural outer corner to exaggerate and elongate the eye. This color continues very subtly under the bottom lashes.

She finished the eyes with lush, flirty lashes – Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara was used all over the lashes and Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer concentrated on the center of the lashes.

Lips

She gave Christina a bold, strong lip with Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon.

Get The Look: Emily Blunt and Jessica Alba at The Golden Globes

I am not sure about you, but I’ve spend pretty much all my lunch break looking at the photos from the Golden Globe 2013: dresses, makeup, hair and makeup.  To tell the truth, I always do that after an event.

Here is actually the makeup breakdown for two most gorgeous actresses – Emily Blunt (I am very lucky to get the details about her makeup quite often; that makes me happy as I love her a lot) and Jessica Alba.

Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant,  available in five more shades. Will be a part of the Spring collection.

Both wore Hourglass Cosmetics, including the new   Ambient Lighting Powder, and they could not make a better choice!

Emily Blunt

Golden Globes nominee ( for Salmon Fishing In The Yemen) Emily was wearing gilded dress by Michael Kors.  According to her makeu-up artist, Jenn Streicher, she wanted “smoky eyes paired with soft pink lips that echoed her Lorraine Schwartz ruby earrings.”

So here are the products that Jenn used:

 Skin

Jenn began by using Kate Somerville Quench Hydrating Face Serum, La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream and La Mer Eye Concentrate.

She then primed the skin with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, and followed with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory.

She used two shades of Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer: Fair, a light shade, was used around the nose and as a highlighter, and Sand, a slightly darker shade, was applied under the eyes. Jenn completed the skin by applying the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light all over the complexion.

Cheeks

Jenn applied Hourglass Superficial Waterproof Bronzer all over the face and neck to create a radiant glow. She then used the bronzer shade from Hourglass Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset to contour the cheeks and jaw line. The blush shade from Illume was applied onto the cheekbones.

Eyes

She started by lining eyes with Hourglass Film Noir Kohl Eye Pencil in Espresso and softened the line with a brush. Jenn then applied the shell shimmer shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy as a highlight on the brow bone and followed with a matte brown eye shadow on the lid.

Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara was applied to the lashes to volumize, lengthen and separate them. She then amplified the brows with Hourglass Arch Sculpting Brow Pencil in Soft Brunette.

Get The Look: Emily Blunt at MET Gala 2013

Did  you get a chance to catch up on the looks from MET Gala 2013? It was interesting to see how celebs or, rather their MUAs and stylists, interpreted this topic.

I did post several looks on my Facebook already and also wanted to share the look that Jenn Streicher created for “my girl” Emily Blunt.

Here is what Jenn says about the look:

“It was Emily’s idea to do pink! Her dress was black so we decided to bring out the theme of the gala by playing up her hair and

Get The Look: Emily Blunt at the SAG Awards

I am a huge  fan of Emily Blunt,  [I’ve watched the latest Mary Poppins just because of her], and actually posted a few of her makeup breakdowns in the past so am happy to share about her latest look from the SAG awards.

Not only she looked gorgeous but she also won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role.

Here is a breakdown of the look which was posted by her make-up artist Jenn Streicher who used all Dior products on Emily.

I love the glowing skin, minimum eye makeup, and a bright pink lip which is matching her dress and nails. She looks glowing!
