Maisie Williams walked the 2015 Emmy’s Awards Red Carpet with a stunning  beauty look.  Thanks to Kiehl’s Since 1851 and makeup artist Kindra Mann, you can create the stunning skin and makeup look at home.

“I was totally inspired tonight by Maisie’s retro feeling pink dress. I loved that the color and texture gave it a vintage feel.  We wanted the makeup to feel that same way, but with a more modern twist.”

“To keep Maisie’s skin looking fresh all night I started off by pressing a few drops of Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate onto her skin before applying a little of Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream for added moisture. I prepped the under eye area with a little of Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado.

“For the makeup, I first applied a thin layer of Kiehl’s Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream in Light all over, and then went in where I wanted a little more coverage with Kevyn Aucoin Skin Enhancer in #5. I set the foundation using Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder in #1.”

 “For the cheeks I wanted to give Maisie a nice sun-kissed glow, so I warmed up her skin using Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow.  I used the darker shade to contour and warm the skin, and just applied the shimmer to the cheek bones for added glow. And, using a stipple brush, I applied La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Blush in Rose Glow to the apples of the cheeks.”

“Maisie has incredible eyes, and I really wanted to play them up. We decided to take a traditional cat eye and give it a modern twist by using plummy purple shadows. Using the Dior 5 Couleurs Palette in Victoire,  I blended the purples together focusing the lighter shade on the brow bone and inner eye.  Next I appliedPur Minerals Eye Polish in Velvet to the outer corners, creating a cat eye effect.  I then finished the eye by curling the lashes and applying a few coats of Pur Minerals Big Look Mascara before adding a few Ardell individual lashes.

“For the lips we wanted a nice nude color that was a little softer than the pink in the dress.  I started off by applying Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 to hydrate the lips. I then added Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo in #1 Pale Pink Nude to give it that perfect nude color.”

The stars shined on Monday night as they attended the “China:Through The Looking Glass” Costume Institute Benefit Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 4, 2015.  We are so lucky that our friends at Kiehl’s and Makeup Artist Georgie Eisdell have shared how to get Carey Mulligan’s beauty look.  As she definitely was a knockout!

“Carey’s look for the Met Ball was all about enhancing her natural beauty. I wanted her skin to glow but then I wanted a little drama on her lips.”

“I first prepared Carey’s skin with Kiehl’s Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate, and then moisturized with Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration and Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado for her eyes. Then I finished with Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector, I love this product so much. It’s the perfect base for makeup.”

“I then evened out her skin with Kiehl’s Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream in Fair/ Light.”

“Then, I used Tom Ford’s Illuminating Highlight Pen to brighten underneath the eye, and then used Tom Ford’s Cheek Color in Frantic Pink on the apples of the cheek for a natural flush to the cheek and then a touch of Hourglass’s Ambient Lighting Palette over the top for extra illumination.”

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

“I enhanced Carey’s already perfect brows with Tom Ford’s Brow Sculptor in Taupe.”

“On Carey’s eyes, I left the lids bare of eye shadow. I just put a wash of translucent powder to even out the area, and then used Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in Cocoa Mirage in the crease of her eye, ever so lightly, to create a natural contour to the eye.”

“I finished the eye with YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara in Black and then a few Ardell single lashes to create a fullness to her natural lashes, keeping them looking defined and spidery.”

“I finished off her look with Tom Ford’s Matte Lip in Velvet Cherry, my favorite lip color at the moment.”

Last night stars shined as they attended the “China:Through The Looking Glass” Costume Institute Benefit Gala at hte Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 4, 2015.  We are so lucky that our friends at Kiehl’s and Makeup Artist Mary Phillips have shared how to get Chrissy Teigen’s beauty look.  As she definitely was a knockout!

INSPIRATION

“The colors I used were very modern but the feel is like a present day, softened, Studio 54, Bianca Jagger look. You’ll see the hues that would be found in an orchid (which I posted on my Instagram) Plums, purples, violets, with some gold and bronzed infused as well. One of the biggest keys to brushing out colors, (and not just on the eyes, but the face and body as well) begins with the right skin care, and without that, everything else would be almost impossible. The products that we put on for prep allowed her do have a locked in, dewy complexion that seemed to just get even more hydrated the longer the ingredients were on. The texture was left silky, but not slippery, which will help make her makeup stay on throughout the night. She is truly radiant, I’m so happy with this look, and the products I got to use to create it!”

SKINCARE

Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream

Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector

Kiehl’s Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate

Mary started by moisturizing Chrissy’s lips with Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1. This allowed lip color to adhere, and shine its truest color. “One of the smoothest and silkiest lip balms on the market, you can feel it sink in automatically upon application.”

She massaged Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream on for about 5 minutes to get the blood flowing to the surface of the face, help alleviate any puffiness and even out skin tone. “I also feel like it makes the ingredients react quicker, which gives you the skin you’re desiring before even putting on any makeup!”

To enhance and further perfect the skin, Mary layered Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector. It acted as a primer and sealed in all of the moisture. “It acts as a primer and does a great job at sealing in all of the moisture and photoshopping out any final areas that would be later perfected with makeup, but, it’s Chrissy, and she needs almost nothing. So on someone this pretty, it’s just a bonus!”

She finished the skincare application by adding Kiehl’s Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate in areas where she wanted an extra glow – the bridge of the nose, temples, tops of the cheeks, and in the cupid’s bow above the lip. It plumped and added shine to the skin – perfect for picking up extra light in front of cameras.  It plumps and adds a great shine to the skin that will look great in front of the cameras and pick up extra light.”

FACE:

Giorgio Armani Master Corrector Concealer in #2 (Orange)

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #8

Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer in #2 and #3

Giorgio Armani Sun Fabric Sheer Bronzer in #200

Giorgio Armani Cheek Fabric Blush in #502 (Skin) and #503 (Daybreak)

TECHNIQUE:

Mary started Chrissy’s makeup by color correcting key areas with Master Corrector. She added a sheer layer of Luminous Silk – just enough to let a natural glow shine through. Her goal was the let Chrissy’s skin breath and be comfortable while adding a flawless glow. She added Fluid Sheer in #2 – a lighter, shimmery bronze – and #3 – a true bronze that gives an invisible depth to the skin that looks very natural. Mary used the Sun Fabric Sheer Bronzer as a final dust over to take care of any extra shine. She used 2 different cheek colors because a natural flush is not all one shade. #502 and #503 blended seamlessly together to make a soft salmon color which is universally flattering.

EYES:

Giorgio Armani Brow Defining Pencil in #3

Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in #9 (Cold Copper), #10 (Senso), #11 (Rose Ashes) and #12 (Gold Ashes)

Giorgio Armani Black Ecstasy Mascara in #1 (black)

Lancôme Le Curler Eyelash Curler

TECHNIQUE:

For Chrissy’s brows, Mary first brushed them, and then applied the pencil lightly. She prefers to use a lighter shade so she can control the color. To achieve a stronger and darker bridge, she added more pressure as she applied.

To achieve the desired watercolor effect, she used Eye Tints – making Chrissy’s eyes pop without being overbearing or heavy. She curled her lashes (first heating the eyelash curler with a blow dryer to double the volume) and added flare, volume and bold color with Black Ecstasy mascara,

LIPS:

Giorgio Armani Rouge d’Armani Lipstick in #513

TECHNIQUE:

Mary used a fuchsia color, reapplying and blotting to get the layer of color she wanted without the thickness and heaviness. The color played off Chrissy’s eyes, cheeks and the flower in her hair. She applied with a lip brush for extra precision.

Kiehl’s will be the first beauty company in over 30 years to appear in the Tournament of Roses Parade on New Year’s Day.

The theme of Kiehl’s float is “Inspiring a Beautiful World” and will showcase their original apothecary in New York’s East Village and represent their three philanthropic endeavors: HIV/AIDS Awareness, The Environment and Children’s Causes.

Kiehl’s fits right in with the Rose Parade as Kiehl’s uses natural ingredients powered by by science in their skincare products, and quite a few of those ingredients will be represented in their float; sunflowers, roses, pear blossoms, pears and peonies.

Another first will be that Kiehl’s is the first company to have motorcycles ride along side of the float and with that two very special guests.  In the vintage sidecar motorcycle, Timothy Brown, the Berlin Patient and an advocate for the rights of those living with HIV and AIDS around the world.  The second guest is seventeen year old Evan Dumas, of Culver City Unified School District who represents Kiehl’s commitment to improving the environment through Recycle Across America.

Riding on the float will be  Kiehl’s President, Chris Salgardo, Kiehl’s Senior Vice President of Global Communications, Rob Imig, and eight of Kiehl’s West Coast Kiehl’s Customer Representatives.

Be on the watch for the float and follow the team along on  social media at #KiehlsxRoseParade!

Review of Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

Finding great skincare products can be perplexing and overwhelming. There are tons of brands and products addressing different concerns. A good eye cream can tackle many problems and help moisturize but, finding one is the trick.

Kiehl’s Since 1851 Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado is a creamy, moisturizing eye treatment that is to provide hydration while taking in mind the sensitive area. The hydration comes from the beta carotene and shea butter along with the avocado oil that moisturizes and infuses the skin with amino acids, potassium and vitamins. The cream is a light green shade and a very thick consistency in the jar, however, once applied to the delicate under eye area it is quickly absorbed without a greasy feel. If you have dry skin under the eyes it will clear up in a matter of days. It is a luxurious product at a reasonable price.

It is easy to see why it is a customer favorite, between the effectiveness, the quality and price, it is worth testing it out for yourself. The 0.5 fl oz jar is priced at $28.50 USD and the 0.95 fl oz jar is $47 USD, the jars do last as you only need a small amount.

** I received a free product in order to review the eye treatment. My opinions expressed in this post are my own. **
