2014 American Music Awards

AMERICAN_MUSIC_AWARDS_2014

The red carpet at the American Music Awards on Sunday followed standard celebrity makeup procedure: glowy skin; tons of lashes; nude lips, with the exception of Selena Gomez; and carefully groomed eye brows. The best beauty look was Gigi Hadid who looked neutral and radiant. I’m quite obsessed with her look in general, so even though her trouser suit was not all to my liking she still wins based on that stunning face.

Prabal Gurung x MAC

prabal_garung_mac

Another day and another designer collab. This time it’s MAC and New York ready-to-wear designer Prabal Gurung. When MAC teams up with someone, you can count on unique package design that’s a departure from their usual makeup artist friendly cases. The exclusive collection with Prabal Gurung is no exception to that rule. The designer himself was creatively involved in the architectural inspired gold cases as well as with the actual colour collection. The result is lipsticks, lip gloss, kohl pencils, eyeshadow duos, cream colour base, bronzing powder, and a kabuki style brush. The entire collection is available online today, and in store November 26.

Makeup Tip of the Day: Mascara Layering

Makeup_tip

Use more than you type of mascara to achieve thicker, longer, curlier lashes. Apply a lengthening one first, starting at the root of the lashes and pull the brush to the very tip of the lashes. Then build on top of that with a volumizing mascara for extra thickness and drama.

Model of the Moment: Riley Montana

model_riley_montana

Relatively new face Riley Montana has gorgeous skin, intense eyes, and a regal neck. It’s no wonder that Riley walked in some major shows this past fashion month including opening the Balmain show; and already has a Givenchy campaign on her resume. This girl is one to watch.

Maybelline Brow Drama

Screen Shot 2014-11-10 at 4.12.55 PM

This was a go-to product for me backstage recently at Toronto fashion week. The tinted gel comes in 3 shades, and is just enough to create a fuller looking eyebrow. The uniquely shaped brush delivers enough gel to keep the brow hair in place without looking heavy or too stiff. You can’t beat budget friendly beauty!

Dramatic Eyeliner Fall 2014

SS_DRAMATIC_EYEMAKEUP_FALL_2014

This seasons eyeliner looks bring major drama, here are a few tips to take these runway trends from the catwalk to the street.

Lanvin’s undone, smudgy lids can be replicated by using a small flat brush and a black cream shadow. The round edges on the inner and outer corners give the liner at Dries Van Noten a very cool feel. Shrink the size of the liner and avoid extending too far out towards the temple to capture the essence of the look in a more wearable way. Opaque black lids combined with massive amounts of lower mascara, as seen at Saint Laurent can be toned down by simply taking the liner only half way up the eyelid.

1. Urban Decay Good Karma Multi-Task Brush 2. Givenchy Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow  3. Giorgio Armani Black Ecstasy Mascara 4. Shu Uemura Calligraphy Ink Eyeliner Pen  5. Ellis Faas Creamy Eyes

The amfAR gala in LA had a very good looking turn out for the event honouring Tom Ford. Rihanna  wore Tom Ford Spring 2015, along with a sleek side part and matte orange lips. Also wearing a sleek do was Gwyneth Paltrow with ruby lips, and Alessandra who wore her sleek locks with a centre part and smoky eyes. Kat Dennings take on classic Hollywood glamour with 40’s waves, looked stunning in her strapless metallic dress. Lea Michele’s chocolate smoky eye and neutral lip was the perfect pairing for her nude tone sequin gown. Cara Santana’s matte cherry lips were the show stopper of the evening. The contrast with her blush dress was absolutely stunning.
