Emmy's Red Carpet Report Get The Look

From Stranger Things Natalia Dyer x Riverdale's Madelaine Petsch to Evan Rachel Wood and Jessica Biel – we have the beauty breakdown for these Hollywood beauties!

Who: Evan Rachel Wood

Hair By: John D

Inspiration: “Evan Rachel Wood’s dark suit, perfect skin and bold lip inspired this soft twisted chignon decorated with fresh flowers. I wanted her to walk down the red carpet looking like a gorgeous renaissance painting.”

Tips & Techniqiues:
  • I prepped clean, damp hair using styling mousse applied to the roots and combed through. I then used the ghd ceramic vented radial brush size 3 ($40) build softness and volume.
  • Next, I sectioned the hair behind ear on both sides, leaving front section. I used the ghd curve classic curl iron ($199) to create an “s” shaped finger wave pattern, clipping it into place to allow cool. For the remaining hair in back, I used the NEW ghd platinum+ styler ($249) to create soft flat iron waves. I created the waves to build shape so that when creating updo hair all falls into itself, making it easier to create the final shape.
  • I then pinned the hair at back of head to create a foundation for the twisted chignon and continued the style by twisting hair pinning it into place.
  • Finally, I removed the clips at front to frame her face and pulled back hair to blend into the updo.
  • Top finish, I removed the clips at front and added some seasonal fresh flowers to create a Renaissance feel. A final spritz of hairspray all over locked in her soft touchable style.

Who: Jessica Biel

Hair By: Adir Abergel

Inspiration: “I was inspired by the Pre-Raphaelite era, in which young women considered their delicate long locks glory and conveyed the ultimate femininity through its soft romantic texture. The look centered around healthy, shiny long hair with a sharp center part. Loose wave and highlights surrounding her cheekbones added a delicate beauty to Jessica’s overall red carpet appearance.”

Tips & Techniques:
  • I prepped wet hair with styling cream and several golf-balls size pumps of styling mousse applied from root to tip to enhance Jessica’s natural, wavy texture.
  • I then used the ghd Air Hairdryer to blow dry Jessica’s hair with the ghd ceramic vented radial brush size 3 ($40) for a beautifully smooth finish. To create the soft wave pattern, I used NEW ghd Platinum+ Styler ($249) and oscillated the tool back and forth. It is important to alternate directions when styling with the flatiron to create bends in small sections of the hair.
  • I added a bit of dry shampoo at the ends to create more volume through the bottom of the look for an airy and weightless touch. To finish, I tucked Jessica’s hair behind her ear, and locked the style with hairspray for shape and added shine.

Who: Madelaine Petsch

Hair By: Marc Mena

Inspiration: “Madelaine is wearing a custom Prada gown so we wanted to go with hair that was young, effortless and the opposite of traditional. One of her best features is her natural red hair and we wanted to really show that off tonight.”

Tips & Techniques:

  • To start, I prepped Madelaine’s wet hair with a volumizing spray starting at the scalp and massaging to ends. I then created a side part and blow-dried her hair with the ghd Air Hairdryer ($199) and ghd ceramic-vented radial brush size 1 ($35).
  • Once the hair was dry, I used the NEW ghd Platinum+ Styler ($249) to curl the hair, giving it a natural, relaxed look. I love this styler because it’s curved edges allow me to glide the hair through, while also twisting, to create a gorgeous curl that also did not look too uniformed. To complete the look, I sprayed the hair with a hairspray and ran my fingers through it to loosen up the curls and give it more body.

Who: Natalia Dyer

Hair By: Gregory Russell

Inspiration: “Natalia is wearing a very classic, form fitting and beaded gown so we wanted to enhance that sophisticated look by creating a classic wave set that was incredibly polished.”

Tips & Techniques:

  • To start, I prepped Natalia’s wet hair with Marc Anthony True Professional Bye.ByeFrizz Blow Dry Cream ($8.99) from mid-strand to ends to ensure the hair was smooth, hydrated and held bounce. I then created a deep side part and blow-dried her hair with the ghd Air Hairdryer ($199) and ghd natural bristle radial brush size 3 ($45).
  • Once the hair was dry, I took small sections around the face and used the NEW ghd Platinum+ Styler ($249) to create S-waves to frame her face. I wanted the hair around the face to be a bit flatter and more relaxed which is why I used a flatiron versus a curling iron for this section of hair. For the rest of her hair, I curled using the ghd curve classic curl iron ($199) away from the face. I sprayed each section with Marc Anthony True Professional Bye.ByeFrizz Hairspray ($8.99), brushed through with the ghd oval dressing brush ($40), and then wrapped around the ghd curve classic curl iron ($199). I counted to 15 seconds and then removed the section from the iron and pin curled to cool.
  • This allows the waves to last and hold their shape. When moving to the other side of the face, make sure to wrap the hair in the same direction as the other side for this style. After curling and setting the hair in pin curls, spray with additional with Marc Anthony True Professional Bye.ByeFrizz Hairspray ($8.99) lightly and allow about 15 minutes for the hair to cool.
  • After the hair was cooled, I removed the clip one section at a time starting in the back at the nape of the head. Next, I sprayed my ghd oval dressing brush ($40) with hairspray and brushed through each section while I removed the clips to give the waves that soft, classic feel. I used a small drop of Marc Anthony True Professional Bye.ByeFrizz 8-in-1 Serum ($8.99) through the ends and around the face to give the waves sheen and definition. Finish with additional hairspray.

2016 Emmy’s Red Carpet Looks

Last night at the 68th Annual Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles the starlets lit up the evening. And we have the how-to's for Hollywood's hottest directly from the celebrity stylists that make them look so good! 

Monday, September 21, 2015

Emmy Beauty How To Roundup

Celebrity stylist, David Gardner, was the man behind Emmy WINNER Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ mane for the 2015 Emmys and she couldn’t have looked any more gorgeous! Gardner exclusively used Peter Lamas products (starting the day before with a super-nourishing mask) and has the step-by-step instructions and tips so you can easily recreate the look at home!

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Get The Look:

Most hair stylists would start with shampooed and conditioned hair; I start a step before that and ask that Julia or any of my clients start the night before and take a moment to do the Peter Lamas Youth Revival 5 Oil Hair Treatment Mask (which will be launching soon!). Apply the Mask to freshly shampooed hair (I prefer to keep it all in the same family and use Peter Lamas’ Soy & Baobab Oil Hydrating Shampoo) to get all the day’s build-up out and then the Mask can really get in there and do work! I have my ladies do this for two reasons:

Step 1: If the hair isn't clean from build-up (or who knows what they've been subjected to at work), I can’t do my job on Emmy day.

Sep 2:  The mask is an incredible strengthener and thickener that is far from making the hair heavy or flat; it fills porous, damaged areas and gives you a real head start in the volume department.

Step 3: Next, grab your Peter Lamas Volumize Me Sea Silk Styling Mousse. LOVE THIS STUFF! It’s packed full of proteins, like kiwi (an antioxidant) and sea silk to protect. This mousse will jack the hold-power up while protecting the hair from heat and wear-and-tear. Apply an egg-sized amount to towel-dried hair and use a wide-toothed comb to make sure it's distributed evenly.

Step 4:  Starting in the front (to achieve the swoop across the face), section off a Velcro roller width section and spray from root to tip with Peter Lamas  'Hold Me' Thermal Styling Spray. Wrap hair around your brush (all with hair dryer down - concentrate ladies, this is the foundation of the whole look and needs to be right) and over direct the roots down and forward and then roll back and off the face. Just make sure the roots are forward. Then, pick up your dryer and start to gently blow the section as it is, put the dryer down, re-roll all the way back to start, pick up the dryer and blow again.

  • THIS my beauties, is the basic way to do a Velcro roller set. You don't blow each section and put the roller in when done. You hold the brush still and blow on it as if it is actually a Velcro. Once the hair is dry, and while still hot, firmly put that Velcro roller in place and pin securely - hot-to-cold sets hair more than wet-to-dry.
  • Repeat this over and over: three back on the top and straight down the back all going under with roots nicely lifted away from the scalp; the sides, again over directing forward, but rolling back away from the face at 45 degrees away and under at an angle (you'll need this for the slight fullness on the sides). This takes a little time and is worth the effort for an all-day event like a wedding or a long night out as the hair will look sexier and sexier instead of flatter and flatter.
  • Once all the head is set in the Velcro, you literally leave it alone until you're 20 minutes away from walking out the door. The longer they stay in, the better. If you're in a rush, you can blow with the cold air button on any dryer and speed this process up.

PRO TIP: While the hair is rolled up and all the root area is exposed I like to give a good shot of the Peter Lamas Repair Me Amplifying Hydrating Mist – it gives a little bit of extra hold and lift to the root area.

Step 5: After the makeup and mini photo shoot is over (who doesn't look amazing in a robe and full makeup and a roller set?), take out all the rollers and using only your fingers, get in there and start to shake out the hair.

  • If your hair takes a curl really well, you may gently use a wide tooth comb here to get rid of the roller sections and if it's really indestructible, use a paddle brush.
  • If your hair falls easily, go section by section, back-comb the roots a little and let it take shape without pulling at all.
Step 6: Part the hair deeply to the side (or more towards the middle, wherever you like) and wait to see how much your hair falls (loses curl) or doesn't. If your hair doesn't fall at all and looks a little Miss America 1950, very carefully apply a little heat to the ends only while brushing through. You want to lose the perfect curl and get a 'kick out' like Julia's. As you get better at the roller set, you'll learn your hair and get faster and faster. Once desired 'curl' is achieved, apply a pea sized amount of the Peter Lamas Chinese Herbs Revitalizing Styling Cream to mid-lengths and ends to break it up and make the hair a little tousled and sexy. Give a final shot of Repair Me Amplifying Hydrating Mist and you're good to go!

Step 1: Apply Smooth Perfection Style Shaping Control Gel to damp hair. Dry smooth with a natural bristle round brush and create a deep side part.

Step 2: Using 1 1/4” iron, set hair with diagonal sections moving away from the part towards the opposite side. Spray each section first with Colour Stylist Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray for added hold. Wind each section around the iron from roots to ends, and close iron on the ends.

Step 3: Create a horseshoe parting at the top and clip out of the way. Backcomb the underneath to create shape. Smooth the surface with a paddle brush, gather together at the back and create a roll into the nape and pin into place.

Step 4: Apply a small amount of Colour Stylist Density Definer medium hold crème wax to fingers, and run through individual pieces on the top. Gather ends, tuck under bob and pin into place. Allow a few tendrils to fall free.

Step 5: Finish with Colour Stylist Supreme Control high hold hair spray for colour-treated hair for lasting hold.

Lady Gaga (provided by Pure Artist Sandra Joseph)

Step 1: Begin by washing hair with Pureology Nano Works Gold Shampoo and Condition featuring Golden Marula oil to restore youthful movement, suppleness and shine.

Step 2: For added strength and repair, lightly mist Perfect 4 Platinum Miracle Filler Treatment throughout while hair is still damp.

Step 3: Emulsify a small amount of Highlight Stylist Gold Definer contour shine-gel in your palms and work through for shine, bend and control.

Step 4: Beginning at the base of the neck, blow dry with a medium round brush taking about 2-inch sections creating barrel curls. Secure sections with clips while working your way to the top. Allow set to cool.

Step 5: Smooth hair with a soft bristle brush and lightly lace the root to mid-shaft for volume. Tuck sides behind the ears and finish with Colour Stylist Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray for a hold that will last all night.

Gwendoline Christie Get The Look:

1. Apply a combination of TRESemmé Runway Make Waves Shaping Gel Cream and TRESemmé Extra Firm Control Mousse to clean, damp hair and rake throughout lengths.
2. Comb through the hair to ensure even coverage and set the foundation for lasting hold and shine.
3. Create a deep side part and begin forming an S-wave pattern in the hair using your fingers. Set waves into place using hair clips to help the pattern set.
4. Once entire head is waved and set with clips, use a diffuser to dry hair completely.
5. Remove clips and spray a bristle brush with TRESemmé TRES Two Ultra Fine Mist Hair Spray to gently brush out waves. As you brush out the waves, pay attention to the direction they flow to encourage the hair to sit in the S-wave pattern.
6. Finish the look by generously spraying TRESemmé TRES Two Ultra Fine Mist Hair Spray for glamourous waves that last.

Emmy Awards 2015 Uzo Aduba Beauty Breakdown

Already an Emmy winner for her role as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren on the Netflix hit series, “Orange Is the New Black”, Uzo Aduba once again took the Red Carpet by storm as a nominee at this year’s Awards. The acclaimed actress stunned audiences with a classic, Grace Kelly-inspired beauty look created by go-to makeup artist, Janice Kinjo.

 “To complement Uzo’s elegant, intricately hand-painted gown, I created a makeup look that embodied the epitome of classic beauty. Long, lush lashes enhanced her subtly smokey eyes and defined brows, while I kept the rest of the makeup extra dewy and natural for a flawless finish.” – Janice Kinjo for SheaMoisture Cosmetics

  • I started by applying SheaMoisture Sheer Liquid Foundation in Montego Toffee to highlight the under-eye area, T-Zone and bridge of the nose. Then, I applied the shade in Ka’u Brown Blaze for a subtle contour before blending both shades with Canoa Espresso for a seamless finish.
  • To set foundation, I used SheaMoisture Wet/Dry Pressed Powder in Yala Golden, focusing on the high parts of the face the lighter foundation was applied. Then, I applied SheaMoisture Perfecting Face Powder Duo in Deep to the contours of the face, setting the deeper-toned foundation.
  • I applied SheaMoisture Lip/Cheek Balm in Avignon Rose as a base before setting with SheaMoisture Mineral Blush in Annecy Maroon for a natural, rosy flush on the cheeks.

  • I filled in Uzo’s brows using the two shades and setting wax within SheaMoisture The Perfect Brow Kit in Brown. I then applied SheaMoisture Color Correcting, Contouring and Highlighting Palette in Medium to further shape and define brows.
  • Using a wet eyeshadow brush, I applied the matte brown shade from SheaMoisture Rich Earth Palette in combination with SheaMoisture Wet/Dry Eyeshadow in Claudia to create a soft, smokey eye. Then, I added a pop of shimmer to the inner corner of the eyes with SheaMoisture Wet/Dry Eyeshadow in Cassandra. Lastly, I coated lashes with SheaMoisture Lengthening Mascara in Black for a fluttery lash look.


  • I first primed lips with a bit of foundation for a truly nude, matte base. Then the ultra-moisturizing and natural nude SheaMoisture Lip Crayon in Calixta was applied to the lips as the finishing touch to this classic, effortless beauty look.

L’Oreal Paris At The 2015 Emmys Get The Looks

The 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards were held last night, Sep. 20 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and Team TME has all the looks for your favorite stars. From Naomi to Heidi and Gina to Taraji we have the full beauty how-tos … straight from the source!

Heidi Klum (NAILS)

MANICURIST: L’Oréal Paris Global Manicurist, Tom Bachik

INSPIRATION: “Heidi wore a beautiful yellow Versace gown and to allow it to own center stage, we kept her nails simple. She’s gearing up for a trip overseas, so we shaped her nails shorter than they’ve been recently – Heidi loves having gorgeous long nails – and polished them cleanly so that the look would last not only for Emmys night, but wear nicely into the next week or two.”

STEP 1: First, Tom filed nails into a classic round shape.

STEP 2: He next applied two coats of L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail, allowing her natural nail to be slightly visible through the sheer hue.

STEP 3: Tom advises maintaining a manicure using L’Oréal Paris Glow Renewal Facial Oil; a drop on each nail 1-2 daily will keep nail color looking fresh and shiny, and cuticles hydrated.

Sarah Hyland (HAIR)

HAIR STYLIST: Ryan Richman for L’Oréal Paris

INSPIRATION: “Sarah's Zac Posen gown was sleek and elegant.  I like to do the opposite with the hair so opted for a messy tousled wave. I've been doing Sarah's hair for about two years so often times the challenge is to do something I've never done before.  I have done her hair wavy countless times but never quite like this.  This texture shows off her amazing cut and color and accommodated the look well.”

STEP 1: First, Ryan prepped damp hair by spraying a generous amount of L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out HeatSpray, focusing at the root.  He used a wide-toothed comb to distribute product throughout the hair and create a deep side part.

STEP 2: Using a blow dryer and his fingers, Ryan roughdried the roots until halfway dry.  He picked up a medium boar bristle round brush to finish drying each section - being careful not to over-smooth the hair - for added volume and a little natural texture.

STEP 3: He next used a 1" flat iron on medium heat to create a tousled wave, spraying L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold on each section before curling, and holding the flat iron vertically facing down clamp a 1" section of hair at the base of the head.  In a fluid motion, he twisted the iron and pushed downward to create a loose beachy wave.  Ryan alternated directions of the wave as he moved throughout the hair for a beautiful tousled-texture result.

STEP 4:  To follow, Ryan rubbed a small amount of L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper-Fix Putty into the palms of his hands.  Focusing at the root, he worked the product through the hair roughly with his hands.  

STEP 5: Last, he used a bobby pin to secure the small side of the part behind Sarah’s ear and misted L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold all over the hair to lock in the style.

Naomi Watts (HAIR)

HAIRSTYLIST: CervandoMaldonado/The Wall Group for L’Oréal Paris

INSPIRATION: “The inspiration behind this look was to create a tousled, modern updo with a chic, 1960’s twist.”

STEP 1: To ensure high-shine, Cervando first washed hair with Advanced Haircare Nutri-Gloss Shampoo and Conditioner.

STEP 2: Next, onto damp hair, Cervando applied Advanced Hairstyle Curve It Elastic Curl Mousse to help create texture, as well as Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Blow Out Heat Spray both at the roots and combed through the rest of hair.

STEP 3: He then rough dried hair and put Velcro rollers in to add volume. After letting the rollers set, he blew out the hair straight and smooth.

STEP 4:  After dry, Cervando sprayed Advanced Hairstyle Txt It Tousle Waves Spray for all-over polish, texture and movement.

STEP 5:  Next, he dried the hair with a diffuser and created small waves with a flat iron.

STEP 6: Cervando then pulled Naomi’s hair back into a loose updo and twisted the hair, pinning as he twisted. He chose to leave Naomi’s bangs and a couple of face framing wisps out to accentuate her tousled look.

STEP 7: Once secured, Cervando lightly misted Advanced Haircare Nutri-Gloss High Shine Glossing Mist to lock in shine, then sprayed L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold to hold the look in place.

Naomi Watts (MAKEUP)

MAKEUP ARTIST: Monika Blunder for L’Oreal Paris 

INSPIRATION: “Naomi wore a beautiful Dior dress that was soft with silver beading and a touch of floral. The look we created to complement the dress was very modern and fresh with a 60’s twist.”

STEP 1: Monika moisturized skin with L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Skin Illuminator and then started by applying L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Makeup W-3 all over the face with a damp sponge and used concealer to spot conceal the areas that needed more coverage.

STEP 2: Then, Monika worked on the brows. She wanted to create strong brow since the rest of the makeup was very soft and fresh. She used L’Oreal Paris Brow Stylist Sculptor in Brunette to create a fuller brow by filling in gaps and adding definition.

STEP 3: For the eyes, she used the L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude 2. She used shade #3 in the crease and shade #1 in the inner corners to highlight and open up the eyes.

STEP 4: Next, she used L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Eyeliner in Black Brown very close to the upper lash line to create more depth and to make the lash line appear fuller. She then used shade #6 from the eye palette to soften the line. To finish the eyes, she curled the lashes and applied three coats of L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Superstar Mascara.

STEP 5: For the cheeks, she wanted something healthy and dewy-looking. She used L’Oreal Paris Visible Lift Blush in Soft Peach to create a soft flush on the apples of the cheeks. Then she highlighted the tops of the cheekbones and brow bones using the L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Ice.

STEP 6: For lips, she created a soft, peachy pink by first applying L’Oreal Paris Le Matte Lip Colour in Game, Set, Matte and layered L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Fairest Nude to soften the color

STEP 7: To ensure the makeup lasted all day during one of the hottest days in LA, she finished the look with L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Set & Spray Makeup Extender Setting Spray.

Naomi Watts (NAILS)

MAKEUP ARTIST: TraceySutter/Cloutier Remix for L'Oréal Paris

INSPIRATION: “The overall inspiration for this look was to choose shades that stay true to Naomi's classic red carpet style and subtlety complement her natural beauty. The result was a timeless, barley-there manicure look.”  

STEP 1: Tracey started with a dry manicure to ensure nail beds did not have too much moisture, which helps polish dry quicker.

STEP 2: Then, Tracey shaped Naomi’s nails a natural round and tended to cuticles, followed by a long soothing massage on both hands and feet.

STEP 3: Tracey and Naomi decided on L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Nailcolor in Passionate Petal together, as Naomi prefers a classy, sophisticated and very clean finish.  Tracey applied just one coat of color and topped it off with the hue’s corresponding topcoat for extra high-shine and protection against chips. 

Rebecca Rittenhouse (HAIR)

HAIRSTYLIST: L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Hairstylist, Mara Roszak

INSPIRATION: “This look was inspired by the gorgeous dress Rebecca wore. Rebecca had an idea of what look she wanted and we both agreed that hair down was definitely the way to go, but we wanted to keep the hair off of her face. We went with a very clean and classic style with a modern center part.”

STEP 1: After washing with Advanced Haircare Nutri-Gloss Shampoo and Conditioner, Mara applied Advanced Hairstyle Blow Dry It Thermal Smoother Cream, all over and then parted Rebecca’s hair down the center.

STEP 2: Next, she blow-dried the hair with a round brush to create a very smooth look.

STEP 3:  Using a 1 ¼ flat iron, Mara waved Rebecca’s hair from ear height down and sprayed L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold all over.

STEP 4: With a soft brush, Mara very gently brushed through the waves and sprayed again with L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold to hold the look in place.

STEP 5: Next, Mara modernized the look by tucking Rebecca’s hair behind her ears.  She sprayed Advanced Haircare Nutri-Gloss High Shine Glossing Mist all over the hair for added shine.
STEP 6: The look was finished by running the end of a comb dipped in Advanced Hairstyle Lock It Extreme Style Gel over strands to tame any flyaways.

Taraji P. Henson (MAKEUP)

MAKEUP ARTIST: Ashunta Sheriff for L’Oréal Paris

INSPIRATION: “Alexander Wang created an edgy princess gown for an edgy rock star actress. The dress called for smoky eyes with lots of liner and sexy lashes.”

STEP 1: Ashunta started with L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Eye Renewal Eye Cream to ensure makeup didn’t cake around the eyes. She prepped the face with L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power Deep-Acting Moisturizer, a rich emollient moisturizer to combat dry skin.

STEP 2:  To prime skin, Ashunta applied L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Miracle Blur Oil-Free to Taraji’s face so complexion appeared smoother and virtually flawless.

STEP 3: Next, she used L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Makeup in C7, which blended seamlessly to match Taraji’s tone, providing a flawless canvas. She then corrected minor imperfections with L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Concealer.

STEP 4: To create a perfect, illuminated glow, Ashunta applied L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator with a makeup sponge patting into the high points of the face like cheekbones, bridge of the nose, brow bones and bow of lips.

STEP 5: Ashunta created the smoldering eye look by using L’Oréal Paris Silkissime Eyeliner by Infallible in Black on lids and lashlines. She blended out the pencil on the lid, which acted as a base and locked in subsequent eyeshadow application.

STEP 6: Using her finger tips, Ashunta blended L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Smoldering Plum liberally all over the lids, and layered in darker mahogany and cocoa colors from L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude up to the crease and accented along lower lashline.

STEP 7: Ashunta then primed and coated upper and lower lashes with NEW L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Superstar Mascara.

STEP 8: Ashunta finished Taraji’s eyes by tracing L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Superstar Liner into a thin, but bold, cat-wing that gave the look a slightly mod feel.

STEP 9: For cheeks, Ashunta used L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Colour Lift Blush in Pink Lift.

STEP 10: L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Brazil Nut and Golden Splendor created the perfect nude lip for Taraji’s darker skin tone.

STEP 11: To finish and set the look for the long, hot evening, Ashunta spritzed L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray all over the face.

Gina Rodriguez (MAKEUP)

MAKEUP ARTIST: Carissa Ferreri for L’Oréal Paris
Inspiration: “The makeup look was mainly inspired by Gina’s dress -- it was more dramatic from anything she’s ever worn.”

STEP 1: Carissa prepped and imparted a glowing base to the face using L’Oréal Paris Youth Code All-In-One Skin Illuminator and to brighten eyes and diminish dark circles, she applied L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Eye Renewal Eye Cream.

STEP 2:  To achieve Gina’s smoky eye, Carissa used mainly grey and charcoal matte tones from L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude in 01. She accentuated the outer corner of the eye using the charcoal shimmer shadow.

STEP 3: For a natural-looking brow, Carissa penciled in light strokes of L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Designer.

STEP 4: To create full, dramatic lashes, Carissa turned to NEW L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Superstar Mascara, and then lined the inner corner of the eyelids with NEW L’Oréal Paris Superstar Liner.

STEP 5: Carissa mixed L’Oréal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup - shades 106 and 107 - in with a touch of L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in N201 Rose to enhance Gina’s skin with a beautiful glow. Using a mini sponge applicator she blended L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator in C302 Ice on top of the cheek bone for added luminosity.

STEP 6: Last, she applied L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Le Matte Lip Pen in 102 She’s So Matte and a touch of L’Oréal Paris Pro Last Lipcolor for a long-lasting lip.

All products are available at L’Oreal Paris and mass retail outlets.

Sofia Vergara At The 2015 Emmys Get The Look

As temperatures rose into triple digits at last night’s 2015 Primetime Emmys, CoverGirl Sofia Vergara brought the heat in a stunning, embellished dress and luminous CoverGirl beauty to outlast the evening’s celebration!

Sofia Vergara Get The Look From Kayleen McAdams:

To start, Sofia always loves that healthy bronze glow – so I began by smoothing Outlast Stay Luminous Foundation in Classic Tan over her skin, this foundation is perfect for achieving that radiant, glowing look that Sofia craves, and the long-lasting coverage will last her all night. I then moved on to her cheeks - I chose Cheekers Blush in Plumberry Glow, our go to shade, to brighten her look and give her cheeks that rosy youthful glow.

Next, onto Sofia’s eyes, to give them a bit of shape - I touched up her brows with Pow-der Brow in Medium Brown and then used Eyeshadow Quad in Go for the Golds Shade #3 along with Perfect Point Plus in Chestnut to line the eyes, I kept the eyes minimal knowing that I wanted her lips to take center stage tonight. The eye look was then completed with lots of LashBlast Volume Mascara in Very Black.

I finished off Sofia’s look with the lip – the main focus of her beauty look. I wanted the lip to stand out against the gold of her dress, Outlast Longwear Lipstick in Amazing Auburn was the perfect combination of brown and red, which helped achieve the pop of color I was hoping for.

Emmy Get The Look Round-Up From L’Oréal

Television’s best gathered at the Nokia Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles on August 25th for the 66th Primetime Emmys and TME has the inside scoop on how to create looks for the hottest ladies on TV! Red on to get the look for Taylor Schilling, Lena Headey, Kate Mara, Michelle Dockery, Heidi Klum, and Zooey Deschanel! 

Taylor Schilling (Hair Color and Hair Style)

Hairstylist: Richard Marin for L’Oréal Paris - Inspiration: “Taylor’s hair look for the Emmy’s was a 60’s inspired updo.”


  1. To begin, use L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Volume Inject Mousse, working product onto the roots of hair for optimal volume.
  2. Blow dry hair with the Remington T-Studio Silk Ceramic Dryer to dramatically reduce frizz.
  3. Spray dry hair with L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Sleek It Iron Straight HeatSpray and run the Remington Frizz Therapy Flat Iron over the entire head to lock in a set. This makes hair stay together and not become too wispy.
  4. Pull hair back into a low ponytail, retaining volume at the crown of the head.
  5. Secure the pony with a band and twist to pin into a messy chignon.
  6. Pull some pieces of hair around one side of the face and spray a light mist of L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray to keep the look loose, while ensuring that it stays in place.
Hair Colorist: Kari Hill for L’Oréal Paris - Inspiration: “Taylor’s specific request for bright, blonde contrasting highlights was an easy complement to her realistic, approachable, and sweet demeanor. Ultimately, her final color tone was inspired by her dress.  When she showed me the design and color of the gown, I considered the most flattering tone to match her look, skin tone, and red-carpet glamour.”


  1. L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference LB01 Ultra-Light Ash Blonde is a great option if the desired look is all-over color in a shade that’s a cool, bright tone, like Taylor’s. To achieve this outcome, do not veer more than 2 shades from your desired tone and level.  Darker blondes should instead opt for L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference 9A in Light Ash Blonde.
  2. L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Ombré Touch OT6 in light blonde to light brown hair is a perfect way to alter a color look with refined, beautiful accents to the tips of the hair.
  3. Always maintain color with a color protecting shampoo and conditioning regimen – like L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Color Vibrancy. The two, in addition to treatment products, instantly nourish and help shield color from fading.

Kate Mara (Hair)

Hairstylist: Mara Roszak for L’Oréal Paris – Inspiration: “Kate wore a striking J Mendel dress – its whimsical feel had edgy detail, a perfect combination of rough and soft.  Her hair was all about shape and texture; I cut it shorter creating a choppy, slightly A-line look.”


  1. To create texture, spray L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and rough-dry for volume at the roots.
  2. Loosely create a wave with a 1.5” curling iron.
  3. Spray hair liberally using L’Oréal Paris Elnett Extra Strong Hold Satin Hairspray.
  4. For added texture and separation, dab L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty onto fingertips and piece out the ends.

Lena Headey (Makeup)

Makeup Artist: Lisa Storey for L’Oréal Paris – Inspiration: “Lena wore a gorgeous architectural dress and has a great short haircut right now, so I decided to go for a modern Audrey Hepburn look with a bit of an edge.”


  1. Prep the skin using L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Moisture Blur.
  2. Next, blend L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation across the face using a darker hue to add a bit of contour around the cheekbones.
  3. Bring a fresh, youthful look to the face by adding L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Blush in Soft Pink Rose and L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Concealer in Light-Clair as a highlighter.  Blend concealer across the under eye, brown bone and cheekbone for a natural highlight.
  4. Line the eyes using L’Oréal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in black.  Create a thicker line and extend it slightly, but not so far as a traditional cat-eye.
  5. Lashes were key to the standout eye look, and L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara in Blackest Black provided just the right amount volume and rich color.
  6. Fill in brows very naturally and without looking too overly styled using L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Sculptor in Brunette.
  7. The darker hues of L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Dual Effects Eye Shadow in Perpetual Nude create dimension on the eyelids, while the lightest golden shade serve as highlighter for the inner corners.
  8. As a finishing touch, use L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Balm Pop in Electric Pink. It will instantly make any look appear youthful and not too “serious”!

Heidi Klum (Nails)

Nail Artist: Tom Bachik for L’Oréal Paris – Inspiration: “Heidi’s dress is a gorgeous Chantilly red- orange color. It’s very bright and summery, yet clean. I wanted her nail look to be fresh, so that her dress stood out as the pop of color. The nail look is simple, classic and glamorous.”


  1. Shape nails using a file, creating a natural rounded look.  This elongates the hand, making it ultra-feminine.
  2. Apply a summer, fresh pink nude shade like L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Polish in Doutzen’s Nude.
  3. Top with L’Oreal Paris Top of the Line Top Coat for a polished, fresh finish.
  4. Massage L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Glow Renewal Facial Oil all over nails and cuticles to keep them healthy-looking and hydrated.

Zooey Deschanel (Nails)

Nail Artist: Tom Bachik for L’Oréal Paris – Inspiration: “Zooey is sporting a super-hot pink dress, so I wanted to create a simple and classic look, playing up the tone-on-tone style. We wanted her nails to be clean and traditional, but with a fun, modern twist. I loved the idea of a reverse moon look on her. It’s architectural, straight and very sleek.”


  1. Polish each nail using a baby pink, such as L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Polish in I Pink I’m in Love.
  2. Place electric pink nail art tape about 3/4 of the way down the nail in a horizontal line.
  3. Apply L’Oreal Paris Top of the Line Top Coat to seal in the look.
  4. Add a few drops of L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Glow Renewal Facial Oil directly onto nails and cuticles for extra miniaturization and shine.

Michelle Dockery (Hair)

Hairstylist: Mara Roszak for L’Oréal Paris – Inspiration: “Michelle wore a one of a kind gown by a Brooklyn designer.  I chose to highlight the classic ease of the dress by creating a beautiful, effortless bun parted in the middle for a cool, modern feel.”


  1. Start by applying L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out HeatSpray all over the hair for soft volume.  Then, blow the hair out using a boar bristle round brush, parting down the center once dry.
  2. Spray L’Oréal Paris Elnett Strong Hold Satin Hairspray all over to add hold and texture.
  3. Section the front of the hair – in front of the ear, forward, and off on both sides.  Then, pull the back into a low ponytail securing tightly with an elastic. Take one side at a time to the back, wrapping the ends around the ponytail elastic.
  4. Softly tease the ponytail at the base (closest to the elastic), smooth over the top and wrap into a bun at the nape of the neck, crisscrossing bobby pins to secure.  For added hold, spray hairspray directly onto the pins before placing them in the hair.
  5. Allow a few pieces around the face to fall out for a soft, whimsical look.
  6. Finish off with L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray for a strong hold that lasts through the night.
