Hair

Hair stylist Laini Reeves, for Moroccanoil, created Emily Blunt’s hair look for the 2013 Golden Globes. Her inspiration: “Emily’s dress was so amazing and sexy that I wanted to create a minimal look that showed off her beautiful features, with simple lines and an unstructured texture with lots of shine.”

To create the look, per Laini:

“I started by shampooing the hair with Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo and Moroccanoil Extra Volume Conditioner.

I applied new Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse to give light volume and shine, and for a flexible, natural-looking hold.

Next, I added a small amount of Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream from roots to ends, then flipped her hair over and rough dried it upside down. I used my fingers to separate and define strands for texture as they dried.

I brought Emily’s hair into a high ponytail, still using my fingers to keep the texture messy, and secured it on the crown with a hair band.

I held the ponytail out and sprayed it from base to ends with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium.

Twisting the hair around my fingers, I made a loose bun held around its base with bobby pins. It was important not to make it too large or too tiny, but the right size to suit Emily’s bone structure and profile. Once it was in place, I tweaked and pulled at the bun to create the right texture.

To finish, I sprayed my comb with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium and used it to smooth the hairline.”

Makeup

In a gilded dress by Michael Kors, Emily Blunt more than lived up to her reputation as a Hollywood golden girl. The actress, nominated in the Best actress, Musical or Comedy category for Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, “definitely had something in mind as far as the look,” says makeup artist Jenn Streicher. “Emily wanted smoky eyes paired with soft pink lips that echoed her Lorraine Schwartz ruby earrings.”

Skin
Jenn began by using Kate Somerville Quench Hydrating Face Serum, La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream and La Mer Eye Concentrate. She then primed the skin with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, and followed with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in “Ivory”. She used two shades of Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer: “Fair”, a light shade, was used around the nose and as a highlighter, and “Sand”, a slightly darker shade, was applied under the eyes. Jenn completed the skin by applying the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in “Radiant Light” all over the complexion. Available in six different lighting settings, Ambient delivers a multi-dimensional luminescence to the complexion by capturing, diffusing and softening surrounding light. “It softens and enhances everything,” says Jenn.

Cheeks
Jenn applied Hourglass Superficial Waterproof Bronzer all over the face and neck to create a radiant glow. She then used the bronzer shade from Hourglass Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in “Sunset” to contour the cheeks and jaw line. The blush shade from Illume was applied onto the cheekbones.

Eyes
She started by lining eyes with Hourglass Film Noir Kohl Eye Pencil in “Espresso” and softened the line with a brush. Jenn then applied the shell shimmer shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in “Gypsy” as a highlight on the brow bone and followed with a matte brown eye shadow on the lid. Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara was applied to the lashes to volumize, lengthen and separate them. She then amplified the brows with Hourglass Arch Sculpting Brow Pencil in “Soft Brunette”.

Lips
Lips were infused with a beautiful wash of color courtesy of Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in “Edition”, a soft pink shimmer.

Hair

Hair stylist Laini Reeves, for Moroccanoil, created the hair look for Amy at the 2013 Golden Globes. Her inspiration: “It was such a special gown, off the shoulder with a beautiful flow of fabric, that I definitely wanted to accent that glamorous nuance.” So, she combined Old Hollywood and Deco references in a unique, loose, and modern way.

How to Create the Look, per Laini:

“We first shampooed the hair with Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo and Moroccanoil Extra Volume Conditioner to give shiny volume without any weight.

After making a side part and brushing the hair into place, I rough dried it using my fingers, and placed a clip in the spot where I wanted the wave to start.

Next, I lightly misted Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray from root to end for a natural-looking, luminous shine that would reflect the detail of the style.

Then I used a large crimping iron to form the wave, taking 2” vertical sections, starting at a face-flattering point alongside the corner of the eyebrow.

I sprayed the rest of the hair again with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray, brushed it through with a soft bristle brush, then pulled it to the lower right side of the nape.

After making a ponytail (held with a hair band), I twisted the hair around my fingers and rolled it into a little bun supported with gold bobby pins.

Once the bun was made, I could decide how loose or messy to make it.  Though there are different ways I could have gone, I decided to keep it airy for a textured modern look.

When I finished, I sprayed Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium on the entire look for a natural-looking hold with shine. “

Backstage at the Badgley Mischka Fall/Winter 2012 show – Hair

This season I was able to go backstage the “Badgley Mischka” show and talk to hairstylist Peter Gray, for MoroccanOil, about the look of the hair for the Fall/Winter 2012 show.

He said the look came from the movie “Metropolis”, whose lead character is a lady with a granny haircut, that is very fuzzy and she looks “demonic and crazy”. He thought that that look would work really well with the hard angles of the clothing collection that season.

Backstage at Badgley Mischka Spring/Summer 2011

This season I was able to go backstage, and watch the preparations, for the Badgley Mischka Spring/Summer 2011 collection fashion show.

The makeup team was lead by Tom Pecheux, for MAC Cosmetics. (*I was so lucky to get to see him key several different shows, each with its own look.) The look for this show was inspired by the movie “White Mischief” and leaned towards a “daytime Studio 54″ look. He used beige and gold shimmer to tone down a silver shimmer to help get a “posh girl, with a wild side” look.

The hair team was lead by stylist Peter Gray, for Moroccanoil. He created a head full of curls, with a strong side part, that was decorated with either metal “coins” or in a scarf. Seriously, these pin curls were covering the *entire* head, tightly, for quite a while thill they dried & there were loosely combed out to be full. The coins were just randomly places with bobby pins in the hair. (*Tip: if you decide to accent your hair, make sure to place the bobby pins downward, to hold the accent in place, because if you place it upwards, your accent will weigh the pin down & it will slip out.)

Nails for the show were handled by nail expert Deborah Lippmann, for Deborah Lippmann (*natch). She layered two of her colors, “Fashion” – a beige in her permanent collection, and “Glitter in the Sky” – from her upcoming Spring 2011 collection, on both the nails & toes. (*Matchy matchy is a big trend for the season, per Deborah). She also talks about how layering different polishes is really popular right now, how it really expands your nail polish wardrobe.

Backstage at Erin Fetherston Spring/Summer 2011

This season I was able to go backstage, and watch the preparations, for the Erin Fetherston Spring/Summer 2011 collection fashion show.

The makeup team was lead by Lucia Pica, for MAC Cosmetics. The look was “of a woman, who travels a lot, coming up from the beach & getting ready to go to a cocktail party”. She got this by having flushed cheeks & solid matte lips.

The hair team was lead by Odile Gilbert, for Moroccanoil. Keeping with the “just out of the ocean/from the beach” look, the hair was styled as a combed, wet look, with a solid part on the side, but only in the front – the back of the hair is dried straight.
