The 2016 Oscars from LAUREN+VANESSA


LAUREN+VANESSA have become a TME favorite. They are a dynamic duo and have shared “how to get the look” for Lady Gaga, Charlize Theron, Sarah Silverman and Jennifer Garner from the 2016 Oscars!



Lady Gaga -“What makes Lady Gaga's look stand out from the rest is her bleach blonde hair. Consult with your colorist about the best way to lighten your hair without damaging it.”

  • First, begin with a classic pin curl set. Once hair is set begin your makeup.
  • Use a Rose gold eyeshadow on the upper lid.
  • Apply a black, thickening mascara and finish with a neutral lip tone like LAUREN+VANESSA Pink Truffle.
  • Once you finish your makeup, brush out your hair with a mason Pearson brush. Then, brush your hair into a deep side part. 
  • Finish by Spraying hair with a strong hold hair spray.



Charlize Theron – “Charlize hair and makeup complete her Dior deep plunge red dress!”

Makeup:
  • Begin with a bronze cream eye shadow. Smudge the shadow with your finger.
  • Then, line your eyes with an espresso eyeliner. Finish with a high impact mascara and a high shine lip gloss in a pale pink.

Hair: 
  • Part hair into a deep side part. Section out the front from one end of the eyebrow to the other.
  • Then, slick remaining hair back into a low bun.
  • Add a volumizing cream to the hair that is left out and blow dry back away from the face. Part hair to the desired side and finish with a strong hold spray.



Sarah Silverman-

Hair: 
  • Blowdry hair with a moisturizing cream.
  • Comb a deep side part into hair. Brush the hair in the back into a low pony or low chignon.
  • Apply a shine cream and/or oil to hair. Finish with a shine spray.
Makeup:
  • Use a tinted moisturizer and subtle pink blush. Add a thin black liner on the top lid.
  • Finish with a volumizing mascara and subtle lipstick close to your natural lip color.




Jennifer Garner-

Makeup:
  • Begin by filling in brows with your natural brow color.
  • Use a Gunmetal kohl eyeliner and smudge all over top lid. Line lower lash line with kohl liner and use a volumizing mascara for extra drama.

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.

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

FACE:
  • 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.

EYES:
  • 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.

LIPS:

  • 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.

FKA Twigs - Makeup by Uzo, NARS International Lead Makeup Stylist

 Claire Danes - Makeup by Matin for NARS Cosmetics

Beauty Inspiration: "I was looking at Chinese illustrations from the 20s and loved the look of a maroon wash on the eyes and cheeks and stained dark cherry or oxblood red on the lips. I wanted to use a version of that which was suitable on the red carpet."

All NARS products, except where noted, are available online at NARS and NARS boutiques.


Beyoncé - Makeup Artist: L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Makeup Artist, Sir John 

Beauty Inspiration: “I was inspired when I saw Beyoncé with all of her hair off her face. It automatically gave her an awakened, child-like look that I wanted to enhance with a bit of an anime vibe. I also wanted to play up her makeup since her Givenchy gown was long, sheer and covered in jewels,” shared Sir John.

Step 1: Prep face with L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation focusing on keeping the T-zone matte. Sir John worked to play up her luminous skin tone and over-exaggerate a fresh, youthful appearance
Step 2: To create contrast, he mixed L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Golden and Rose (Available July 2015) and applied to the cheeks. To further sculpt the cheek and add dimension, he applied L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Powder, which also helps absorb light
Step 3: Sir John made Beyoncé’s tan skin really pop by directly contrast with a pastel mint lid. He created a mod eye by applying a mix of L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Endless Sea and Infinite Sky
Step 4: For a “deer in the headlights” look, Sir John applied L’Oréal Paris The Super Slim Liner by Infallible to the top lid and into the lash line. He purposely kept the bottom lash line clean with no liner and mascara to further enhance the wide eye finish
Step 5: To complete the look, he added tons of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara so eyes popped, and added a touch of L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Lip Color in Neverending Nutmeg to simply and subtly enhances the shape of lips


Karlie Kloss - Makeup Artist: L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Makeup Artist, Sir John 

Beauty Inspiration: Sir John was inspired by the elongated silhouette of Karlie’s Versace dress, which lead to the decision of creating an enhanced summery, beachy look with a fresh, modern, evening twist.

Step 1: Sir John prepped skin with the super-rich L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Volume Filler Re-Volumizing Daily Moisturizer to create a flawless, moisturized base 
Step 2: Then he used L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Ice (Available July 2015) for a glowing, luminous complexion
Step 3: Next, he blended L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Golden (Available July 2015) to sculpt and define Karlie’s cheekbones
Step 4: Following the silhouette of Karlie’s dress, Sir John opted for a fresh eye look and elongated the eye applying L’Oréal Paris Silkissime Eyeliner by Infallible in Green Ivy to the top of the eyelid. By starting the liner at the middle of the eye and drawing under the lash line, the eye appears more open
Step 5: To create maximum impact, Sir John added L’Oréal Paris Infallible Smokissime Powder Eyeliner Pen in Black to the lash line, followed by the several layers of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara for extra intensity
Step 6: To complete the look and create a super nude lip, Sir John applied L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Lip Color in Everlasting Caramel

Karlie Kloss (Hair) - Makeup Artist: L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Hairstylist, Mara Roszak  

Beauty Inspiration: “Karlie wore a gorgeous Versace gown, which automatically feels a little sexy. I really wanted her hair to be moveable and soft, so we went for a tousled, glamorous look,” shared Mara.

Step 1: To start, Mara applied L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out HeatSpray to damp hair
Step 2: Next, she blew out hair starting at the front and using a round brush around the face and sides, rough drying the back
Step 3: Then, Mara wrapped random sections of hair around a 1 ¼ curling iron, keeping the ends out for smooth and soft waves
Step 4:  She sprayed the hair with L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold to lock the look in place and then brushed out the hair a bit to soften the wave
Step 5: Next, she applied a few spritzes of L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare High Lift Creation Spray for more body and hold
Step 6: Last, Mara sprayed more L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold all over hair to complete the look


Carey Mulligan (Hair) - L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Hairstylist, Mara Roszak  

Beauty Inspiration: “Carey wore this gorgeous Balenciaga gown with a stunning collar so, because of the high neck, we wanted to put the hair up. I love this look – it’s ethereal with a slightly modern edge that still feels effortless,” shared Mara

Step 1: Mara started by spraying the entire head with L’Oreal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse, then rough dried hair with a blow dryer
Step 2: Next, she pin curled the sections around Carey’s face to give extra height to the look
Step 3: Mara split the back of the hair into three sections, fastening each section into a pony tail and then wrapping into individual buns, locking in with L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold
Step 4: Next, she let out the front pieces and touched them up with a curling iron before pinning them to the back of the hair
Step 5: With a tiny bit of L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold on her fingertips, Mara loosened the front pieces for added softness around the face


Lily Collins (Hair) - L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Hairstylist, Mara Roszak  

Beauty Inspiration: “Lily wore classic Chanel. We’ve already done so much with her short haircut, so for this look we really wanted a more timeless, simple look.”

Step 1: Mara trimmed a few pieces of Lily’s hair up front to give a shorter bang look
Step 2: Next, she used a ½ wide curling iron to curl random pieces of hair
Step 3: Then, Mara applied a minimal amount of L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel as a shield to keep hair in place
Step 4: She sprayed L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold onto her hands and pieced out bangs using her fingertips
Step 5: To finish the look, Mara turned to L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray, which smoothed hair and locked in the style


Julianne Moore - Makeup Artist: Elaine Offers for L’Oréal Paris

Beauty Inspiration: “Julianne wore a gorgeous black Riccardo Tisci gown with jet beading and corseted accents.  She debuted a shorter hairstyle and we used her signature makeup color palette of taupes and plums, amping it up a bit for the occasion,” shared Elaine.

Step 1: Elaine prepped skin with L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Volume Filler Daily Volumizing Moisturizer
Step 2: She then blended L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation with Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer for a combination of coverage and luminosity
Step 3: To brighten up the face, Elaine dotted her go-to L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift CC Cream under the eyes, down the center of the nose and across the top lip
Step 4: Next, she penciled in brows using L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Designer in Blonde, and the upper lashlines with Infallible Smokissime Eyeliner in Brown Smoke
Step 5: Elaine defined eyes with a selection of rich plum and chocolate hues from the NEW L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude Smokey, adding Infallible Silkissime Highlighter to the waterlines to open up the eyes
Step 6: Next, she finished off the eyes with coats of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara
Step 7: Last, Elaine used both L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Lip Colour in Raisin Revival and Mesmerizing Merlot to concoct Julianne’s signature plum lip look


Jennifer Lopez - Makeup Artist: Mary Phillips for L’Oréal Paris

Beauty Inspiration: “All I have to say is RED DRAGON! The hair is slicked back and very fashion forward in its ‘finish’ and texture, but very tasteful. The makeup really ties in the red dragon theme, but in a very subtle way. She has that classic JLO skin, we kept the glow, the tone- and all of those elements that people love, but I would definitely call this glow a ‘special occasion’ glow. You're going to see a lot of reds, oranges, peaches, but in a very diffused blown out way. We play a lot with merging her eye color with her cheek color, which is Eastern Asian-inspired, and pays a bit of a homage to the disco 70's era. Her lips are a golden coral and her eyes have a very thin black liquid liner line on the upper lash only. You might notice an overall golden finish to her skin, which is because I dusted that everywhere as a finishing touch to play up the crystals in her breathtaking red Versace gown. She almost looks ethereal. She floated in with this dress,” shared Mary.

Step 1: To start, Mary applied L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur, which is great for filling in the depths of fine lines and allowed foundation to glide on with ease
Step 2: Mary used L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray before, during and after makeup. She explained that it gives skin the perfect finish making it her skin-must
Step 3: Next, she applied L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Foundation in Classic Tan all over the face
Step 4: To brighten and plump in all the right ways, Mary added two-in-one L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Serum Absolute Concealer
Step 5: To create the signature bronzed glow and for a bit of sheen, Mary applied Armani Sun Fabric Sheer Bronzer
Step 6:  Mixing Lancôme Limited Edition Blush Subtil Crème in Coral Alize, Brise Rosee, and Rouge Mistral and L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Classic Wine created a super slick balmy blush, which Mary patted all along the temples, tops of the cheek bone and into the eye lids. She also dabbed the mixture at the very center of her mouth and blended outwards, which she described as almost a faint "popsicle mouth” look
Step 7: For the eyes, Mary applied L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Intenza Mascara in Black, which fanned lashes out and added thickness primarily to their tail ends
Step 8: For bold color and precise, long-lasting application in one stroke, Mary applied L’Oréal Paris The Super Slim Liner by Infallible
Step 9: Mary then applied L'Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Brow Plumper in Transparent, which she credits as having the perfect hold
Step 10: To complete the look, she added a shiny punch of a subtle color using L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Le Gloss in Peach Fuzz -- the luster and sparkle tied the look together to completion

All products are available at online at L’Oréal Paris and mass and drugstores nationwide.


Gabrielle Union – Got2b Celebrity Hairstylist, Larry Sims

Beauty Inspiration: “We wanted to give her something super fresh, with a rock star vibe at the same time” says Sims. He adds, “I gave her a razored bob cut that is shorter in the back with elongated tips in the front, and layered throughout.”

Step 1: Once Larry finished cutting Gabrielle’s hair, he went section by section starting at the nape of the neck and sprayed Got2b Guardian Angel Flat Iron Balm to protect hair from heat styling
Step 2: Next, Larry set his blow dryer to cold on the highest setting to give her strands a wispy and voluminous finish
Step 3: He then took Got2b Playful Crème Pomade, rubbed it into his palms and ran the product through her hair for added texture
Step 6: Next, he used a few drops of Got2b Glossy Anti-frizz Shine Serum for additional shine and frizz control, and finished with Got2b Mind Blowing Fast Dry Hairspray to set the look

Got2b products are available at DrugStore.com


Katie Holmes – Celebrity Stylist DJ Quintero

Beauty Inspiration: For the 2015 MET Gala, Katie Holmes paid homage to Chinese style with an elaborate, navy, Zac Posen dress embroidered with Asian-inspired clouds and side cut-outs.

Step 1: On damp hair, apply a dab of Alterna Haircare Caviar CC Cream to the ends only
Step 2: Blow dry using a medium-sized YS Park round brush, keeping the front and side pieces straight and the back of the hair beveled inward
Step 3: Run a 1 ½ inch Harry Josh flatiron through hair, from root to tip
Step 4: Shake hair and spray Alterna Haircare Caviar Perfect Texture Finishing Spray throughout for body and texture
Step 5: Spray Alterna Haircare Bamboo Beach Summer Sun Shine Spray throughout for smoothness and shine

The entire look including hair and make-up was based on Ava's personal style -elegant and distinguished with a hint of 60's influence. A bold, dark smoky eye and a plum lip completed the look."


Key NARS products used: All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, Sycorax Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow

Makeup by Maki Ryoke for NARS Cosmetics
 
Beauty Inspiration: “We took inspiration from the gown Nicole is wearing to create a beautiful, clean and modern look. We decided to focus on her eyes and add a little more intensity than usual with a rich, luxurious, shimmery smoky eye to keep it natural and cool and really play off her statement dress.”
