Flawless dress, flawless face.  Makeup artist Adam Breuchaud used Jouer Cosmetics on the stunning actress.  “When I first saw the silver and gunmetal metallic dress I immediately thought it needed a sexy, rock n’ roll make up.  We decided on a smudged kohl eye, almost the day after look,” said Adam.  See below for the step-by-step…

I started by smudging Jouer Creme Eyeshadow in Suede all over the eye. I blended Jouer Powder Eyeshadow in Opal in the inner corner for a highlight, then layered Jouer Powder Eyeshadow in Chocolat over her lid.  Next, I applied Jouer Eye Definer in Noir along the top and bottom lash line.  Over that I blended Jouer Powder Eyeshadow in Licorice to really smoke out the look.

After cleaning under her eye I applied the Jouer Age-Repairing Concealer in No.3 Cameo where needed.  Then I applied the Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint in Bronzed as a foundation.  It is sheer enough to let the skin show through where you want  and build more coverage where you need.

On Kate’s cheeks, I applied Jouer’s cream Tint in Whisper and Mineral Powder Bronzer in Sunshine – my favorite go to duo.  Together they define and brighten the cheek effortlessly.

To finish off the look I used Jouer Lip Gloss in Cherish.


Allison Williams Golden Globes 2014

Avon Global Celebrity Makeup Artist Lauren Andersen created a classic sultry smokey eye to match Allison’s black and white gown (I’m obsessed), complemented by a soft pink rose lip. Here’s how to get the look:
  1. First, Lauren groomed Allison’s brows with Votre Vu Brow Wax.
  2. Next, she played up Allison’s baby blue eyes with a classic smokey eye using Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Urban Skyline.
  3. Lauren lined her eyes with Avon Glimmersticks Eye Liner in Blackest Black and then coated lashes with Avon Mega Effects Mascara.
  4. On Allison’s face, Lauren applied YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation and then dusted on Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light.
  5. Lauren swiped Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Rose Petal on the apples of Allison’s cheeks.
  6. To complete the look, Lauren applied Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Ripe Rose.



Her hair. I can’t…it’s just so good.  Hair stylist Lona Vigi captured the pregnant starlet’s natural beauty.  Lona said, “Olivia wanted to feel like herself tonight – beautiful, but not overdone – so I decided to leave her hair down. I think this look is sexy and effortless. And even a bit rock ‘n roll.”

1. Prep wet hair using Oscar Blandi Jasmine Oil Serum on the ends for shine and to protect the cuticles; Oscar Blandi Lacca Hairspray on the roots for body and “staying power;” and Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Heat Protect Spray to safeguard from hot tools.

2. Part the hair to one side and blow-dry using a round brush.

3. Spray hair all over with Oscar Blandi Pronto Texture & Volume Spray and then curl it, alternating with different curling iron barrels (¾ to 1½ inches); repeat and tousle for more texture.

4. Spray Oscar Blandi Pronto Invisible Spray onto the roots and all over for body, shine and to absorb any product residue.

5. Finish with Oscar Blandi Lacca Hairspray to ensure long-lasting hold throughout the night.

The 2013 Met Gala

the met gala

I love, love, loooove The MET Gala.  Why is it different from any other celebrity party?  Well, for one, the fashion is always way more avant garde and this year the theme was “PUNK: From Chaos to Couture.”  YES.  While there were some “WTF was she thinking” outfits, I’m completely in love with these three looks:

1. Blake Lively: Blake, who claims that she doesn’t have a stylist, worked with Gucci Première to design this amazing dress that kind of makes me think of Black Swan.  Her makeup in word word?  Flawless.  Her makeup artist, Elaine Offers, used NARS on Blake.  “It starts with Blake’s signature approach: luminous beautiful skin,” said Offers about the look she created for Blake. “We created a serious eye shape as a nod to the punk theme by building on a smoky eye and winging it outward. With the diaphanous layers of her skirt and a light lip, it comes together as being both glamorous and edgy.”

2. Anne Hathaway: To be perfectly honest, I was so not impressed with Anne’s look from the Oscars but guys, she totally killed it in this Valentino dress, complete with Debbie Harry-inspired platinum blonde hair.  Anne’s makeup also looks totally flawless and, according to her makeup artist, Adam Bereuchaud, he used Laura Mercier on the actress.  Specifcally, Breuchaud gave a subtle nod to the event’s punk theme by creating a bold, “electric blue” smoky eye to complement Anne’s flawless, porcelain skin.

3. Gwen Stefani: To no surprise, I clearly love what my girl Gwen wore to the gala (a Maison Martin Margiela cut-out gown and Fred Leighton jewels).  I can’t think of anyone more appropriate than the punk rock princess herself.

Bonus content: Jeannine has the scoop on a few of the hottest manis from the night and THIS, just for shits and giggles. I’m obsessed with Nicole Richie’s hair.


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.
