Solange Knowles At The 59th Annual Grammy Awards Get The Look

At the 2017 Grammy Awards, celebrity makeup artist Dana Delaney gave the award winner Solange Knowles a warm and shimmering neutral look using Chantecaille skincare and makeup.

INSPIRATION: Dana was inspired by the golden glamour of Diana Ross. She wanted
Solange to have a pared-down natural look with an element of interest.

How-To Achieve Solange’s Grammy’s Look:

1. Dana prepped Solange’s skin by massaging in Chantecaille Bio Lifting Oil Free Fluid to hydrate skin and prevent any dry patches.
2. Future Skin Foundation in Banana and Suntan and Stress Repair Concentrate were blended into her skin for sheer coverage. Banana was used in the center of the face and Suntan was blended through the hollows of the cheeks and forehead to match her complexion. Le Camouflage Stylo Concealer was applied in areas that needed extra coverage. She then brushed Chantecaille HD Perfecting Powder in her T-zone to prevent shine.
3. For a touch of light and warmth, Dana used a buffing brush to blend Radiance Gel Bronzer to add dimension to Solange’s cheeks. Liquid Lumiere in Sheen was lightly tapped on the tops of her cheeks and the center of her eyelids with a damp makeup sponge. A hint of Cheek Crème in Shy was added for a flush of color.

1. For shimmering lids with touches of copper and gold, Dana used the Protect the Lions palette on the lid before going over it with Mermaid Eye Color in Copper.
2. Chantecaille Luster Glide Silk Infused Eyeliner in Earth was applied to the lashline and slightly smudged using her finger. She coated Solange’s lashes with Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara.
3. Solange’s eyebrows were brushed up and filled in using Waterproof Brow Definer in Oak Brown.
4. For a graphic visual, Dana gave Solange black accents above her eyelids with Le Stylo Eyeliner in black.

1. Solange’s lips were lined in Lip Definer in Tone.
2. Dana mixed Chantecaille Lip Potion and Gaia Lip Chic and dabbed it on the center of her lips for a light neutral hue.

1. For a healthy glow, Dana mixed Chantecaille’s new Rose de Mai Body Oil with a drop of Radiance Gel Bronzer and rubbed it into Solange’s skin to highlight her shoulders, arms and legs.

All Chantecaille products are available at online and select retail locations around the globe.

Met Gala 2015 Celebrity Style Get The Look

Did you get enough of the how-tos for last night’s Met Ball? Of course you didn’t! So, Team TME has more!

Joan Smalls – Celebrity Stylist, Jennifer Yepez using Kérastase

Beauty Inspiration: “Tonight, Joan Smalls was wearing a beautiful, purple Roberto Cavalli dress. The dress was sexy, and also rock 'n roll. Joan walked the carpet with Peter Dundas, who wanted Joan’s hair to be super sleek hair with a middle part. To get Joan’s sleek look, shiny hair products and heat protection are key. I chose Kérastase because these are my favorite.”

Step 1: First, I applied both Kérastase Discipline Keratine Thermique and Kérastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique on the mid-shaft to ends of the hair. I recommend this for most hair types, but if hair tends to get frizzy or is very dry, then I suggest using one of the Thermique’s along with Kérastase Disciple Spray Fluidissime.

Step 2: Next, blow-dry the hair with a large, round brush.

Step 3: After you have blow-dried hair all over, take a flat iron to all of the hair, making sure to flat iron from root to end.

Step 4: Then, apply Kérastase Couture Styling Touché Final evenly throughout hair, root to tip.  If you have fine hair, just use it mid-shaft to the ends.

Step 5: Once finished, spray Kérastase Couture Styling Laque Couture on the top of the hair and to smooth down flyaways

Kérastase Hair Care is available online and at select retail locations.

Solange Knowles - Makeup by Miguel Ramos for NARS Cosmetics

Beauty Inspiration: “Solange didn't want to take the theme of the Met Gala too literally but was still in theme with the front flap of the dress resembling a fan. To me, the structure and print of garment resembled a black hole in the universe. The eyes are often referred to as windows to the soul we focused on a very captivating eye.”

Key NARS products used: Lysithea Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow,  Fervor Dual-Intensity Blush, Audacious Mascara (NEW for Fall 2015)

 Zoe Kravitz - Makeup by Renee Garnes for NARS Cosmetics

Beauty Inspiration: “The inspiration for Zoe's look was the Chinese Terra Cotta Army meets the daughter of Aunty Entity (Tina Turner's character) in ‘Mad Max’.”

Key NARS products used: Craving Dual-Intensity Blush, All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation 

NARS products, expect where noted, are available online at NARS and NARS Boutiques. 

Jessica Chastain - Celebrity Hair Stylist Ryan Trygstad for S Factor by TIGI

Beauty Inspiration: "We were inspired by Rita Hayworth and the serious glamour of her era. I researched exactly how Rita set her hair back in the 40s and drew inspiration from there. The look is a cross between a sideswept updo and a faux bob that perfectly displays Jessica's gorgeous ruby earrings."

Step1: Prep hair with S Factor by TIGI Stunning Volume Shampoo & Conditioner

Step 2: Next, spray a liberal amount of S Factor by TIGI Body Booster Plumping Spray on damp hair, focusing on the roots. Emulsify the S Factor by TIGI Silky Smooth Moisture Serum and True Lasting Colour Hair Oil and smooth onto ends for a high sheen look.

Step 3: Blow dry hair with a round brush, lifting hair at the roots and smoothing through the ends.

Step 4; Wrap small sections of hair around a 1.5" barrel curling iron, curling hair inward toward the face, pin back one side of hair behind the same ear

Step 5; Finish with S Factor by TIGI Vivacious Hairspray and brush out curls using a boar bristle brush

Products Used: S Factor by TIGI Stunning Volume Shampoo & Conditioner, S Factor by TIGI Body Booster Plumping Spray, S Factor by TIGI Silky Smooth Moisture Serum, S Factor by TIGI True Lasting Colour Oil, S Factor by TIGI Vivacious Hairspray

S Factor by TIGI products are available at select salons and Ulta locations.

NARS and Stars On The Red Carpet At The 2014 Met Ball Get The Look Exclusive

The Met Gala -- also known as The Met Ball, Fashion Prom, or this year, Cinco de Met Ball took place on the evening on May 5th at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. And, as always, the stars were shining brightly for this annual fundraiser that benefits the Met's Costume Institute. The Met Ball also serves as an opening celebration for The Met’s annual fashion exhibit, which features designer Charles James in a new show titled “Beyond Fashion”. Everyone from Sarah Jessica Parker to Blake Lively and Solange Knowles to Jessica Paré was in attendance. And The Makeup Examiner has the exclusive Get The Look for these gorgeous women!

Kirsten Dunst - NARS worked with Celebrity Makeup Artist Jeanine Lobell to create the beauty look for Kirsten Dunst. Beauty Inspiration:” Kirsten’s look featured elements of Star Wars and the idea of intergalactic travel with a twenties inspired hairstyle. The makeup tied all of these concepts together.” Key NARS products used:Sycorax Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow (New for summer) | Interstellar Eye Paint | Luxembourg Satin Lip Pencil

Blake Lively - NARS worked with Celebrity Makeup Artist Elaine Offers to create the beauty look for Blake Lively. Beauty Inspiration: “This look is very classic but very glamorous. We wanted to nod to Charles James’ aesthetic by creating a look reminiscent of vintage Hollywood but modernize it with a muted red lip.” Key NARS products used: Baalbek Eye Paint | Subra Dual Intensity Eyeshadow (new for Summer 2014) | Salsa Lip Liner Pencil

Jessica Paré - NARS worked with Celebrity Makeup Artist Mai Quynh to create the beauty look for Jessica Paré. Beauty Inspiration: “I wanted this look to be very glamorous but not too traditional which is why we opted for a bright lip; it's the first time we've gone bold for the red carpet!. To keep the look fresh and modern I decided to forego eyeliner and instead create a wash of metallic on the eyes.” Key NARS products used: Anguilla Matte Multiple | Himalia Dual Intensity Eyeshadow (new for Summer 2014) | Yu Satin Lip Pencil

Karen Elson - NARS Lead Makeup Stylist Jenny Smith created the beauty look for Karen Elson. Beauty Inspiration: "This is timeless beauty and reflects the way women of the 1950's used small details in their application for spectacular enhancement of their features. We opted for a reddish-orange lip and created the tiniest flick of eyeliner for subtle definition." Key NARS products used:Red Square Velvet Matte Lip Pencil | Radiant Cream Compact Foundation in Siberia | Cruella Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

Solange Knowles - NARS worked with Celebrity Makeup Artist Benjamin Puckey to create the beauty look for Solange Knowles. Beauty Inspiration: After looking at her dress, we decided that the focus should be her eyes. We imagined this dark and smokey-bronzed look with a lot of mascara. Glowing cheeks and a nude lip really helped to intensify the dramatic effect. Key NARS products used: Subra Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow (New for Summer 2014) | Siam Matte Multiple | Isola Bella Satin Lip Pencil

Sarah Jessica Parker - NARS worked with Celebrity Makeup Artist Leslie Lopez to create the beauty look for Sarah Jessica Parker. Beauty Inspiration: “Her makeup look is a modern version of something we’d see from the 1950s. Oscar de la Renta created her dress with Charles James in mind so I created a very distinct shape for the eye that was popular during that era.” Key NARS products used:Giove Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow (New for Summer 2014) | Via Veneto Larger Than Life Eyeliner | Adelaïde Illuminator

All products, except where noted, are available at NARS.
