Queen Latifah made a splash with the officiating of the I-Do’s of 33 lucky couples.  She looked stunning and showed a dark lipstick with a gorgeous canvas of glowing skin.  The Queen’s makeup artist Sam Fine picked a great look.

Taylor Swift is one young lady that really does rock great beauty looks on red carpets.  What I loved about her look tonight was that she went a different route than her normal gorgeous red lip.  Her light pink lip is perfect so that her silver smokey eye.  Also loving her hair pulled back in a chic ponytail.

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.

Tamar Braxton glowed on the red carpet.  Her makeup was subtle and really showcased her beauty.  It was a look that was perfection, from the perfectly lined eyes for a pop, fresh skin and a light pink / nude lip.

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.

A Waterfall Braid is a take on the classic French Braid. Instead of starting your French Braid down the middle and taking an even amount of hair on each side, this braid starts on one side of your head and wraps around the back. The appeal is that it looks complicated but it really isn’t. Based on what you are looking for, it can take the place of a half up/half down hairstyle.

The hair that is not braided can then be styled straight or wavy, or you can add curls for a more romantic feeling. The Waterfall Braid also gives a way to pull your hair all the way up in a fun and stylish way and will beat the heat for those summer weddings. The ends of the hair can be twisted in a bun so that it is completely up and off the face.

Either style of the Waterfall Braid lends itself nicely to adding flowers, feathers or a fun hairpiece within the end of the braid – another fun hairstyle option that is all the rage this season with brides and celebriti
