Dianna Agron looked gorgeous when she hit the red carpet and her makeup looked amazing thanks to her artist Georgie Eisdell.

Thanks to an amazing team I was able to get the scoop, so that you can create this eye catching look.

“We went for a sexy, smoky vibe which is easy with Dianna, she has the eyes for it and her skin is gorgeous.”  said Georgie Eisdell.

To start the look, Georgie prepped Dianna’s skin with Kiehl’s Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate , which kept her skin to stay extra hydrated over the long night.  Next they used Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration.  With the focus of the makeup on her eyes, the next step was prepping the eye area with Kiehl’s Super Multi-Correcting Eye Opening Serum. Just before I started on her base, I used Kiehls Micro-Blur Skin Perfector which puts a soft-focus filter on the skin.

“I evened out her skin with Kiehl’s Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream in Light, and then powdered lightly with La Mer’s The Powder to take the edge of the shine.”

“Dianna’s eyes were the focus. We haven’t used a lot of color lately so I wanted to give her eyes a little something special.  I used Chanel’s Illusion D’ombre in Diapason and Fantasme on the lid, blending it up into the crease. I brought it under the eye to create a smoky effect. On the inner rim for depth I used Tarte’s Deep Amethyst Pencil followed by two layers of YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara in Black, making sure the roots were coated really well to give extra depth to the lash line.”

Nars Blush in Madly was used on her cheeks to add color and create a contour.

“I finished off her look with Kiehls Lip Balm #1 first, then Jouer’s Lip Shine in Maui.”

“Just before she walked out I put Kiehls Creme de Corps body moisturizer on her arms chest and legs for that perfect glow.”

“I first prepared Taylor’s skin with Kiehl’s Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate, and then moisturized with Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration and Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado for her eyes. Then I finished with Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector, my favorite thing to have on the skin before foundation.”

For Taylor’s skin  Kiehl’s Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream in Fair/ Light was applied.

“I used Dior’s SkinFlash to brighten the eye, and then used Chanel Cream Blush in Revelation for a beautiful sheen on the cheek and then a touch of Chanel Illuminating Powder over the top for an extra burst of sheen.”

“I powdered really lightly, just on the high points of her face with La Mer’s The Powder.”

“I enhanced Taylor’s already amazing brows with Laura Mercier Brow Definer in Soft. On Taylor’s eyes, I left the lids bare of eye shadow. I just put a wash of translucent powder to even out the area, then used Tom Ford Eye Defining Pen in Deeper along the lash line very finely and slightly extended for the cat eye effect.”

“I finished the eye with Kevin Aucoin’s Essential Mascara in Rich Black, and a then a few Stilazzi individual lashes to create a fluffy fullness to her natural lashes.”

Her look was finished off with Kiehls Lip Balm #1 to hydrate the lips, then Jouer Lip Shine in Ibiza.”

Kim Kardashian’s Makeup Artist Shares her Wedding Day Look

Kim Kardashian‘s wedding to Kanye West has been a huge story and following this past weekend.  Finally the wedding photos have been released and all have seen the bride in her gown and her gorgeous bridal look.  Her longtime makeup artist and friend Mario Dedivanovic is spilling his tips on creating her look for the wedding in Florence.

Mario saw the dress and took inspiration about her look from it. “I didn’t want to make too much of a statement with her makeup. We decided to go with something natural and timeless. I wanted to go with something clean and classic and I wanted her to look almost angelic.”

Talking to Australia’s Channel Nine breakfast show Mornings, Mario confirmed that Kim wanted her signature contoured makeup for the wedding, before explaining how he defined her cheekbones. “Contouring frames the face and chisels the cheeks. So basically it’s putting a little bit of bronzer on the hairline and jawline and on the hollows of the cheeks and the bridge of the nose. It thins out the face and gives warmth to the face. Sometimes it takes 20 minutes, sometimes an hour. The most important [tip] is to blend, blend, blend.”

On her skin he went with a radiant, dewy look. For her eyes he went with warm tones and a liquid eyeliner on the lids. Of course he enhanced her lashes with individual false lashes by Kardashian Beauty and Urban Decay Perversion mascara and made them pop as they always seem to do in photos of the star. For the ceremony her lips was a peachy pink and then at the reception they switched it for a classic nude lip using L’Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire in Nude Ballet.

Whether you were a fan of the dress or not Katy Perry‘s makeup and hair looked amazing.  The bubblegum pink lipstick was a great color that gave a fun statement.  Perry’s hairstyle was a nod to Elizabeth Taylor.  Her hair was twisted into a large bun and a shine mist was applied to get that polish.

Anna Kendrick’s sideswept hair was inspired by icon: Veronica Lake.  It was a fabulous style to showcase her beauty and the dress.  To create this look use thermal rollers and brush out.  And don’t forget to add the frizz control to keep your mane looking smooth.

August 2011 Cover Of Vogue: How to Get Sarah Jessica Parker’s Makeup Look

If you are like me, then the cover a magazine is all about the look that the model is wearing.  I also always look to Vogue magazine for the season’s next look and then look to the makeup to see what is trending and how to get the cover look.

Sarah Jessica Parker is the American Vogue August 2011 Cover Girl.  Her look is classic both in clothing and makeup: flawless skin, a heavily lined eye and a natural pink lip.

Here is how to get SJP’s look for yourself.

1) Start with prepping your skin with a great moisturizer and a primer.

2) All about the eyes.  First what sets her eyes off is the well shaped and shaded brow.  Use a brow brush to shape and then a brow pencil or powder to define the brow.  Pick a light neutral shade of shadow and apply below the brow.  The eyeshadow on the lid that was used is ExpertWear Eyeshadow in Night Sky by Maybelline, which is a shimmery dark shadow.  However, you could use a chocolate brown to get the same effect and use a light hand on application as the lid is not heavily shadowed.  Line both the upper and lower with a black.  In the picture, the makeup artist used Unstoppable Eyeliner in Onyx.  Mascara is an important feature and use the darkest black you can find.

3) Sarah Jessica Parker’s skin looks flawless and a great way to get yours to look the same is to choose a matte foundation.   To get the great shimmer that is seen in the photo use a product like MAKE UP FOR EVER Uplight. It is a silky gel that reflects and diffuses light to give you a natural but radiant skin.  I mix this with the foundation so that the skin looks flawless and a great finish.

4) As for cheek color with this look go very light both in color and application.  It is really gong to be more to contour fabulous cheekbones. In this photo no cheek color was used, just foundation and lighting.  However, you can add a little if you would like to add some glow to your skin.

5) Her lips are in a lip color shade that is very close to her natural shade with a light pink color.  If you want to amp this color add a lip liner in a brown to add a little bit more color.
