Jaimie Alexander stunned on the red carpet and as a presenter for the 2016 Golden Globes. We are very lucky that Kiehl’s andIT Cosmetics, makeup artist Jeffrey Paul shared with us the products he used to create the beauty look.
“To compliment Jaimie’s luxurious and royalty status dress, I wanted to give her an elegant look with a touch of drama. Jaimie’s features are all stunning so it was hard to decide what should be the focal point but we went with her gorgeous eyes as they are the windows to the soul. I framed them and emphasized the light color with a little bit of drama so she could shine like the star she is on the carpet.”
“A bit of moisture was added first on Jaimie’s lips with Kiehl’s Facial Fuel No-Shine Moisturizing Lip Balm.”
“Her skin was prepped and refined with Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing and Radiance Masque to quickly prime Jaimie’s skin in dry areas. I then began hydrating her skin with Kiehl’s Iris Extract Activating Essence Treatment, and then made her skin shine with Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, and Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado under her eyes.”
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 GeorgieEisdell 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.”
“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 inTaupe.”
“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 singlelashes 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!
“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!”
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.”
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)
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.
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
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,
Giorgio Armani Rouge d’Armani Lipstick in #513
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.
Winter is finally over and in many cases it has been a rough one for you and your skin!
Our friends at Kiehl’s have a new skin care technology, that can help you determine your skin’s level of hydration. Which can save you a ton of time and guessing .
Kiehl’s introduces our newest skin care technology, the Kiehl’s Dehydration Analyzer Tool (DAT), in Kiehl’s retail stores and select Kiehl’s department-store counters, to help customers determine their skin’s hydration. Kiehl’s DAT is used by Kiehl’s Customer Representatives (KCRs) to help diagnose the health and hydration of the skin during a signature Kiehl’s Healthy Skin Check, a complimentary service offered.
The pen-like device employs bio-electric impedance technology to send an undetectable current through the surface layers of the skin, bouncing back to the device, measuring the water level in the skin by detecting the resistance to that current. The DAT is pressed gently to the customer’s cheekbone issuing a current–again, painless and completely undetectable by the customer–into the skin, which then bounces back to the device for the measurement. Since water is an excellent conductor of electricity, the more hydrated the skin, the less resistance the current will have, so the faster the current comes back to the device, the more hydrated the skin. A reading of 0-30% means skin is very dehydrated; 31%-50% means skin is somewhat dehydrated; and a reading of 51% and up means your skin is hydrated.
The DAT reading is quick and efficient—hydration levels can be read without any skincare preparation and over makeup. Because hydration levels change over time, especially from season to season, we recommend that a Kiehl’s Healthy Skin Check every 3-4 months, to make sure you’re using the most appropriate products to maintain the health and hydration of the skin.
Every skin check begins with our KCRs using Skin Barrier Testing Tabs pressed onto the skin to measure the sebum level of the skin to determine skin type—normal, oily or dry. That is then followed by using the DAT to measure skin’s water level to determine the level of hydration. It’s important to remember that there’s a difference between dry skin and skin that is dehydrated. Dry skin lacks oil; while dehydrated skin lacks water. Any skin type, normal, oily or dry can suffer from dehydration.
Based on results from testing with the Skin Barrier Testing Tabs and the DAT, as well as an in-depth conversation with the customer about his or her skincare concerns and personal preferences, the KCR then recommends a personalized Kiehl’s Healthy Skin Routine to treat, moisturize and protect each customer’s skin.
If you’re interested in trying this out check at your closest Kiehl’s store.
Jessica Chastain‘s skin and makeup looked amazing at the 87th Academy Awards. I am so lucky to be able to share with you the products and how to get the look that makeup artist Kristofer Buckle created for the evening.
“Before we began, I applied a layer of Kiehl’s Creme De Corps to make sure Jessica’s arms, legs, and décolletage were as flawless as her face. Applying the lotion first gave it plenty of time to absorb.”
The 2015 72nd Annual Golden Globe’s took place last night in Los Angeles. I have the distinct pleasure of getting all of the beauty details of one of the hottest nominees; Emily Blunt. Makeup Artist Jenn Streicher for Kiehl’s andDior Beauty tells us how she created the look.
“Emily is wearing a gorgeous white Michael Kors dress with to-die-for jewels by Lorraine Schwartz – both the dress and jewels were custom made just for Emily. I can’t remember the last time Emily wore white on the red carpet! Because she just returned from a sunny get-away, her skin was perfectly bronzed for a white gown. And because we decided to have her hair loosely back I wanted her makeup to be soft and ethereal and just a pop of color on the lips to bring out the jewels.
“The first and most important step is prepping the skin. I started with Kiehls’ Ultra Facial Cream and Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado. And because I knew Emily would wear a matte lip, I slathered her lips in the Kiehls Lip Balm #1. I then started on Emily’s eye makeup so her skin treatments could properly absorb.”
“For her eyes, I dabbed on Dior’s Backstage Eye Prime over the entire lid and then mixed 2 of the lightest shades of Dior’s eye palette “Cuir Cannage” #796 over the lid. I also mixed two of the darker shades of the same palette in her crease, concentrating on the outside corners and a bit on the lower lash line. I also brushed a bit of her blush (Cocktail Peach #553) on her lids. I dabbed on Dior’s long wearing cream shadow in Chimere over the entire lid to give it a little shimmer. And, of course, tons of Dior Show Mascara.
“Before I started on the foundation, I used a bit of the Kiehls Micro-Blur Skin Perfector in the T-zone and then applied the Diorskin Star makeup followed by the Diorskin Star brightening concealer to cover any little imperfections or redness.”
“And then, for my favorite part of the look, Dior lipstick #169 Grege with just a bit of the new Rouge Dior Lipshine in #808 over the top. Emily told me it might be her favorite look I’ve ever done on her!”
