The amfAR gala in LA had a very good looking turn out for the event honouring Tom Ford. Rihanna was 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 wore her centre parted style with a smoky eye. Kat Dennings take on classic Hollywood glamour with 40’s waves looked stunning with 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.

2014 Emmy Awards

Back to back awards shows required a few celebs to have a quick turn around on their red carpet looks. Gwen Stefani went from shocking pink retro to modern metallic overnight. January Jones looked classic Hollywood with red lips and winged eyeliner. Kerry Washington wore pumpkin Prada and switched up her usual perfectly coiffed locks for tousled ombré. I loved Allison Williams  peaches and cream look, it was ideal with her pastel gown and simple pulled back hair.

3 Cannes Red Carpet Beauty Looks

cannes_beauty_looks

These 3 classic beauty looks were spotted on the Cannes red carpet over the past week. Blake Lively’s smoky eyes and nude lips were especially gorgeous when set against her perfectly sculpted face. Every feature on Rosie’s face is groomed flawlessly. To recreate this look use a bronze eye shadow all over the lower eyelid and through the crease. Define and brush up the brows with brow gel. Black winged liquid eyeliner will lift and frame the eyes, and a neutral pink lipstick will complete this look. Cara’s scarlet lip is the focus of her makeup, but I also love the highlight in the inner corner of the eyes. Timeless beauty looks like these work for every woman.
