The makeup look from the Altuzarra spring show is one that translates quite easily from the runway to the street. The look is all about creating big wide round eyes. Start with fully groomed eyebrows, then apply white pencil or shadow in the inner corner of the eyes and blend well. Apply mascara to the centre of both upper and lower lashes, then using a small section of false lashes cut from the inner corner, place in the centre of the upper lash line and a couple on the bottom. Use your pupil as a guide for proper placement. Finish the look with a cool pale pink lipstick.
As the fashion industry celebrated the best in the business tonight, those in attendance were dressed to impress. Gigi Hadid and Diane Kruger shimmered. Natasha Poly, Chrissy Teigan and Janelle Monae were draped perfectly. Kim Kardashian continues with her penchant for sheer. Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss and Victoria Beckham opted for varying degrees of low cut.
This summer one of the strongest trends to come from the runway is the 70’s. The early part of the decade pre-disco fever, the relaxed bohemian vibe that is essential right now. Makeup and hair should follow suit. A bronzed complexion, understated lips, and tousled locks complete the look.
Ten days of ultra glamorous red carpet looks it’s tricky to narrow down who exactly were my faves. These six were definitely among the best from beauty to fashion. Charlize Theron nailed elegant style on the first day wearing a stunning yellow gown and understated makeup. Zoe Kravitz embodied cool girl chic. She was completely effortless in Valentino and her makeup look featured unexpected tiny dots at her lower lash line. I adored Diane Kruger in pale blue Prada, and the subtle highlights on her cheekbones were gorgeous. Emily Blunt in Stella McCartney, and Poppy Delevingne in Burberry represented British design very well, however Giles wins for Cate Blanchett’s show-stopping galaxy dress.
Without a doubt the most exciting thing that happened on the red carpet last night, was Olivier Rousteing announcing the Balmain H&M collaboration! It was a Balmain evening with the designer dressing the host Chrissy Teigan as well as the Jenner sisters, Jourdan Dunn and Taylor Swift. Kendall gets my vote for best dressed. I’m all about the sleek hair, glowy skin, smokey eyes, and nude lip with that outfit, it was perfection.
The makeup master trilogy of Pat McGrath, Peter Philips, and Tom Pecheux turned out three on point looks for the most talked about resort collections. At Chanel in Korea Tom Pecheux was inspired by the culture. The K-Pop like makeup featured false lashes, outlined brows, and two-toned bright matte lips. Louis Vuitton showed in the heat of Palm Springs, and while Pat McGrath created rainbow works of art for the faces of the greeters, the runway look was minimal with simple white dots following the shape of the eyebrows. Fresh faces continued at Dior yesterday. The collection was shown at Pierre Cardin’s crazy bubble house but the show was anything but crazy. Peter Philips sent the girls down the runway with immaculate skin, perfect nude lips, and a hint of Dior Show mascara.
Now this is how you bring drama to the Met Gala. Rihanna nailed the theme as did Gaga and Sarah Jessica Parker. Kerry Washington in Prada and Solange in Giles were outstanding and exactly what this event called for.
The Met gala red carpet has kept me thoroughly entertained for the better part of this evening. This years theme China Through the Looking Glass was not entirely represented as well as it could have been, though there were still plenty of beautiful looks. Cara Delevingne managed to merge fashion wearing Stella McCartney, and the Chinese theme with a gorgeous body painted design. Jennifer Lopez’s dragon inspired Versace gown paired with her ultra glowing complexion and red and bronze blush was quite stunning, and some what on theme. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looked amazing, her makeup and hair were completely flawless. Kim Kardashian let her Cavalli dress be the focus wearing neutral makeup and a neat ponytail. Amal Clooney always serves dramatic glamour perfectly. Then there was Mrs. Carter…she worked the red carpet in sheer beaded Givenchy. I loved the blonde super high side ponytail, and winged liner.
