22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards Natalie Portman and Mandy Moore GTL


Team TME scored the how-tos for two of the most beautiful women to grace the Red Carpet at last night’s 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards, which was held at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, CA.  Congrats to Natalie Portman on her Best Actress win for “Jackie.”



INSPIRATION: “For Natalie’s look tonight, she chose this gorgeous chiffon McQueen dress that had a cool 70’s vibe, so we thought the hair should echo that a bit and went for bohemian curls.” -Bryce Scarlett

TIPS/TECHNIQUE:
To start, I blew out her wet hair using the ghd Air Hairdryer and the Natural Bristle Radial Brush (size 2) and created a deep side part. With the ghd Tailcomb, I teased her hair as I went to ensure her hair would set with fullness. Then, I curled her hair with the ghd CURVE Classic Curl Iron in one-inch sections to create S-waves. I made sure to curl the hair each section in the same direction so that the final look would be uniform. After finishing each curl, I pinned it to her head, and then, once all her curls were pinned and had cooled, I used the Air Hairdryer again, this time with the Air Diffuser attached, to ensure the curls would have serious staying power. After that, I took out all the pins, sprayed the ghd Oval Dressing Brush and brushed out her curls with a bit of dry shampoo to finish the look.

ghd PRODUCTS: ghd Air Hairdryer ($199), ghd Natural Bristle Radial Brush 2 (40), ghd Tailcomb ($22), ghd CURVE Classic Curl Iron ($199), ghd Air Diffuser ($30), Oval Dressing Brush ($40)



To give Mandy her flawless look, Celebrity Makeup Artist Jenn Streicher used TEMPTU, including the never-before-seen Perfect Canvas Airbrush 24-Hour Airbrush Foundation, out in March 2017! This next iteration of airbrush makeup reinvents the gold standard with a long-wear, powerfully hydrating and age-defying formula that delivers TEMPTU’s most flawless, natural-looking finish ever.

INSPIRATION: "Tonight, Mandy chose to wear a beautiful and very sexy column dress by Solace London. My sister Ashley, who did her hair, really wanted to play up the sexiness of the dress and wear her hair down. We went for "70's sexy" - the hair is loose and tousled while her makeup has a sultriness to it. Since the dress is very low-cut, it was really important for me to make sure ALL of her skin looked flawless and TEMPTU is perfect for that!" -Jenn Streicher

TIPS/TECHNIQUE:
To start, using the TEMPTU Air, I airbrushed her face with the new Perfect Canvas 24-Hour Airbrush Foundation in Nude to give Mandy a flawless complexion. I continued airbrushing her neck and décolletage since she had some tan lines we wanted to hide. Since the foundation is lightweight and buildable, we could add a bit more to the areas that needed it most, without it looking caked on. Next, I used TEMPTU's Blushing Coral Airbrush Blush onto the apples of her cheek and then, to accentuate her features, I added the Airbrush Highlighter in Bronze along her cheekbones to give a warm glow. For her eyes, I added some bronze shadow and lots of mascara to make the look a bit sultrier. Then, for the finishing touch, I added TEMPTU's True Color Lipstick in Tawny Spice for a natural lip and she was good to go.
