Jessica Biel at the 2014 Oscars

Jessica Biel 2014 Oscars

I’m usually drawn to a bold lip or a dramatic eye but when I saw JESSICA BIEL‘s look from the 2014 OSCARS I was pretty into it.  Jessica is known for the natural, girl-next-door makeup and hair and, lately, I’m really feeling the natural thing happening; she’s still glam but has that fresh faced look that I think is just really gorgeous…here’s how to get the look, from her makeup artist, KAYLEEN MCADAMS, ck one color global makeup artist:

THE INSPIRATION: “I wanted to do something really fresh, light and feminine. There were so many beautiful pastels in her dress, so I played with those tones.”


  1. I prepped Jessica’ skin with moisturizing face and eye products, Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration and Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, to give her makeup a good base to stick to.
  2. Then, I used a damp Beauty Blender to apply ck one 3-in-1 face makeup with SPF 8 in fair 200, followed by ck one 3-in-1 concealer in light 1 underneath the eyes, around the nose, and along the edges of her mouth to even out her skin.
  3. I used Charlotte Tilbury Film Star Bronze and Glow powder on the tops of Jessica’s cheekbones, down her nose, and on her cupid’s bow.
  4. I finished her skin with ck one cream + powder blush duo in breath 100 right on the apples of her cheeks and set it with the powder side of the product to give the look staying power throughout the night.
  5. For Jessica’s eyes, I started by using a fluffy brush to apply ck one cream + powder bronzer duo in deeply bronzed 400 all over the lid.
  6. Then, I used ck one powder eyeshadow in expose and evolved on the inner corners of the eye and along the lash line at the outer corners.
  7. I completed her eye with two coats of ck one volumizing mascara on the top lashes to pump up the lashes.
  8. Then, I applied the same mascara onto an eyelash comb and combed through the bottom lashes to slightly darken them.
  9. For Jessica’s lips, I used Tarte Lip Surgence in Lucky to cover her whole lip with a matte pink; I also used this product in the center of her lips to give dimension and add moisture to her look.
  10. Lastly, I gave Jessica’s lips a good coating of Kiehl’s Facial Fuel No-Shine Lip Balm to soak in while I did her eyes.


Get The Look: Gwen Stefani At The Pumpkin Patch

I recently came across this photo of Gwen Stefani (pregnant with her third child, btw) taking her two boys, Kingston and Zuma, to a California pumpkin patch for Halloween…and nearly died.  First off, she is probably the hottest pregnant woman EVER and second, how cute is this casual cool outfit?  Here’s how you can re-create the look:

I can’t pretend that I actually want to show off my stomach (ever) but when I saw this photo of Rihanna in London, my eyes popped out of my head.  To say that Ri Ri has a hot bod is simply an understatement, she has the innate ability to put on literally anything and just look AMAZING in it- so not fair.  The best part about this outfit is that it’s pretty much effortless and you can pull it together using basic wardrobe staples (e.g. boyfriend jeans, metallic heels) and, ok, you might have to buy the sequin crop top…

Here’s how to steal Rihanna’s London look:

Get The Look: Alexa Chung

Get the look Alexa Chung

Alexa Chung looked absolutely stunning at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival – 8th Annual CHANEL Artists Dinner.  I’m loving her radiant (yet very pale) skin, with just a hint of lip and eye.  Here’s how to get the look:

Tarte Maracuja Miracle Foundation SPF 12-Hour Broad Spectrum SPF 15: Alexa has great skin but her skin actually looked FLAWLESS at this event…and I don’t say that lightly.  Tarte’s foundation gives great coverage AND SPF 15 for us fair ladies, like Alexa and myself.

Laura Mercier Lip Glace in “Bare Pink”: A beautiful mauve-pink shade, with lots of moisture, is key here.

NARS Blush in “Orgasm”: It’s the go-to blush for almost every makeup artist, and for a good reason.  It looks good on almost everyone and you don’t end up looking like a clown.

Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Eyeliner in “Perversion”: Alexa doesn’t have a ton of eye makeup on but you can clearly see a beautiful line of liquid eyeliner.  I love Urban Decay’s version since it’s so easy to apply and doesn’t smudge or streak.
