Ashley Graham 'American Beauty Star' Beauty Look S2 E12

WHO: Ashley Graham, International Superstar Model and Revlon Brand Ambassador, hosting season 2, episode 12 of American Beauty Star on March 20, 2019.

MAKEUP BY: Katie Jane Hughes, Celebrity Makeup Artist


To capture Ashley’s lit-from-within glow, Katie used Revlon PhotoReady Candid Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation in Medium Beige #270 and Revlon PhotoReady Candid Antioxidant Concealer in Biscuit #027 , buffing them into her skin with the Revlon Highlighter Brush.


Hughes used 7 shades of eyeshadow to conjure this shimmery, softly diffused wash of sultry purple. She started with ColorStay Not Just Nudes Shadow Palette in Romantic Nudes, mixing the mauve and nude brown shades together on the brush, swirling them on the lid and under Ashley’s eyes. The lavender shadows from the palette were then mixed and swirled from the lash line and up to the browbone, extending them a little past the corner of her eyes. To add the incandescent glow, Hughes took the purple shades from the PhotoReady Eye Contour Kit in Watercolors, and using the same diffusion technique, applied them to the inner corners and center of the lids, then used the highlighter shade under the brow bone, and blended all the colors out to lift the eyes up. Several coats of Revlon Volumazing Mascara in Black on false lashes added drama.


Ashley’s cheeks were softly shaped using the PhotoReady Instant Cheek Maker in Sweet Coral, sweeping the cheek color over the apples of her cheeks and the highlighter on the highpoints of the face and down the nose. To subtly contour, Hughes swirled the tiniest bit of powder from the ColorStay Brow Kit in Soft Brown underneath her cheekbones. She even enhanced the natural beauty mark on Ashley’s left cheek with the ColorStay Brow Pencil in Dark Brown.


To define Ashley’s arches, Hughes mixed together the Dark Brown and Soft Black shades of ColorStay Brow Kit, using short, dash-like strokes to get the right balance of tones.

Ashley Graham 'American Beauty Star' Beauty Look S2 E7

WHO: Ashley Graham, International Superstar Model and Revlon Brand Ambassador, hosting season 2, episode 7, the Revlon Beauty Challenge episode of American Beauty Star on February 13, 2019.

MAKEUP BY: Katie Jane Hughes, Celebrity Makeup Artist

INSPIRATION: Sexy with a funky edge to play off the sparkle of Ashley’s diamanté dress


  • Revlon PhotoReady Candid Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation in Medium Beige #270 was applied to the skin with the Revlon Highlighting Brush, which is small enough to fit into all the curves of the face for a smooth finish. 
  • Revlon PhotoReady Candid Antioxidant Concealer in Biscuit #027 was dabbed at the inner and outer corners of her eyes and in the hollows, then blended with the same brush.


  • Revlon ColorStay Crème Eye Shadow in Earl Gray was swept all over her lids with the Revlon All Over Shadow Brush, concentrating it at the inner corners, fading it out along the lids and toward Ashley’s brows to really emphasize the silver on the V shape of her eye. 
  • To add a sultry, smoky haze, Hughes layered Revlon ColorStay Eye Liner in Black Brown with ColorStay Crème Eye Shadow in Tuxedo all along the top and bottom lids, intensifying the color at the outer corners as a way to break up all the silver. 
  • Lashes were curled with the Revlon Salon Pro Lash Curler before applying Revlon VolumazingMascara. One Swarovski crystal at the inner corner of each eye was attached with a dab of lash glue for extra sparkle.


  • To balance the shimmery eyes, brows stayed soft with Revlon ColorStay Brow Pencil in Soft Brown applied in feathery strokes, starting about a half-centimeter in from the beginning of the brow (the side closest to the nose).


  • For a whisper-soft flush, Hughes used 2 shades of Revlon Insta-Blush, first swirling Nude Kiss on Ashley’s cheeks, and then Berry Kiss right in the center of the apples of her cheeks, blending to diffuse the two shades. 
  • The champagne shade from the Revlon PhotoReady Highlighting Palette in Rose Glow was then dusted on the high points of Ashley’s face and along the hairline near the forehead to elongate the face.


  • To keep lips plush, Hughes used the same RevlonColorStay Brow Pencil in Soft Brown and traced it along the outer corners of her mouth to contour them, blending out the edges with the Revlon Blending Brush. 
  • With her finger, she pressed on a pinky-nude lip color from the new lip kit Ashely created for Revlon (dropping this Spring!) in the center of her mouth and gently blended it out along the rest of her lips.

Serena Williams Vogue Cover Get The Look

On the cover of the February 2018 issue of Vogue is Serena Williams -- the woman who holds 39 Grand Slam titles and is an inspiration to soooo many of us! Inside the pages, Serena speaks about her recent marriage, motherhood and her personal struggles, as well as her comeback. We’d say that this issue of Vogue is one not to miss. Looking as gorgeous as ever, we have the Get The Look from Serena’s cover… straight from Vernon François!

Inspiration: “Since Serena is a fresh new mummy, I went with more of soft and simple vibe to the hairstyle. It’s big hair but not over top, with a lighter feel which complements her new hair color.” -Vernon François, Celebrity Hairstylist & Founder of the Vernon François Collection.

Tips/Techniques: To recreate Serena’s look, start by cleansing hair using the Re~Vamp Shampoo. Once towel-dried, prepare strands for styling with the Mist~Nourishing Water followed by a little of the Leave~In Conditioner. To protect hair from heat and breakage, mix in three pumps of the Lightweight~Styling Serum to hair before styling with a three-millimeter curling iron. After hair is styled, gently and loosely pull apart the curls with fingers to create a more natural and voluminous look. To complete the look, spritz hair with the Dazz~Ling Spritz Shine Spray for a touch of shimmer.

Vernon François Products Used:
  • Dazz~Ling Spritz Shine Spray ($24)
  • Leave~In Conditioner ($28)
  • Lightweight~Styling Serum
  • Mist~Nourishing Water ($18)

Julien Macdonald x ghd SS2018 LFW Get The Look

Iconic hair styling brand, ghd, partnered with Julien Macdonald for the Spring / Summer 2018 LFW show, where ghd global ambassador Adam Reed created the hair look. Inspired by high-octane, 90s glamour and the supermodels of this decade, Adam crafted straight, luxurious, glossy hair full of movement.

“When we saw the collection it was immediately clear that super-glamorous hair was required. Inspiration then came from the glamorous heritage of the 90s.”Adam Reed

“We are bringing straight hair back,” explained Adam. “But in a very modern way. The secret to success here lies in the process –namely starting the look with a brilliant blow dry via the ghd air hairdryer. This achieves brilliant condition, gloss, shine and movement. Afterwards, we are running the ghd platinum styler over hair to eliminate any last frizz or kinks. We’re treating the hair very carefully, as you would a beautiful and delicate fabric. Wanting to keep an element of every girl’s personality, we are then letting girl’s partings fall as close to center as suits them best.”

Get the look:

1. Wash hair and comb it through, before applying ghd heat protect spray.

2. Create a parting that is slightly off center. It’s a uniform look, but we are personalizing it by letting each girl’s parting fall wherever suits them best around the center.

3. Blow dry hair smooth with the ghd Ceramic Vented Radial Brush size 4 and ghd Air Hairdryer.

4. Amp up swish and eliminate any last frizz or kinks by running the ghd Platinum Stylerover hair.

5. Seal the deal with a spritz of a hairspray.

6. You’re good to go

All ghd products are available online at ghd hair and select retail locations globally.

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.

All L’Oréal Paris products are available at mass retailers nationwide. Find more fab tips at L’Oréal!

Sofia Vergara’s Emmys Beauty Get The Look

Courtesy of MMC for Head & Shoulders and CoverGirl
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 Sofia Vergara’s red hot look, starting with the step-by-step hair tutorial for her shiny straight style followed by the breakdown to achieve her easy, breezy, beautiful makeup.

First, Head & Shoulders got the scoop on how to achieve her smooth blow out with a center part from Sofia’s stylist, celeb hair guru Kylee Heath. Follow Kylee’s step-by-step instructions below and you’ll be ready to make your red carpet debut!

1. Start with Head & Shoulders Smooth & Silky for a flake-free part and 24-hour frizz control
2. Create a straight center part on damp hair
3. Blow dry the top front section, away from your face, with a boar bristle round brush. Roll the section under itself and pin into place to cool
4. Blow dry the rest of your hair in two square inch sections and pin each section in place then wait for all sections to cool. Once cool, take out each section and brush it
5. With a 1 ½ inch curling iron, add a slight bend to the shorter front layers
6. Finish by spraying with light hairspray for extra hold 

Next, Sofia’s makeup artist complemented her Art Deco style with a retro lip and a fresh modern eye. With the white and silver dress, white diamonds and simple hair, the makeup called for a pop of color. See the breakdown below of Sofia’s glamorous look.

Face: I used a shorthaired buffing foundation brush to really buff the foundation, truBLEND Liquid Foundation in Classic Tan D-4, into the skin.  I then used a touch of bronzer (Clean Glow Bronzer in Spices) on the forehead, cheekbones and down the bridge of the nose. I added a pop of blush, Clean Glow Blush in Peaches, on the apples of the cheeks to give the look some warmth.

Eyes: I avoided any liner and kept the eyes simple by applying Queen Collection Shadow Pot in Dazzle in a cat eye shape. I applied two coats of Clump Crusher by LashBlast Mascara on both the top and the bottom, which gave the eyes more structure without looking too heavy.

Lips: The focus was really about the lip, so I needed a long lasting lip product that would last all night through the red carpet, award show AND parties. I didn't want the lip to look too dry so I chose Outlast AllDay Lipcolor in Ever-Reddy as it is super pigmented and would give that punch of color while still looking like a shiny candy apple! I lined the lip with a matching pencil, LipPerfection Lipliner in Passion.
