GET JESSICA CHASTAIN’S OSCAR 2015 BEAUTY LOOK

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.”

“All makeup application needs a great base, so I prepped Jessica’s skin with Kiehl’s Hydro Plumping Re-texturizing Serum.  It works wonders as a primer and is extremely moisturizing.  I then added a thin layer of Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, and applied Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado around her eyes.  This was followed by Kiehl’s BB Cream in Light – Jessica is very fair, so it’s crucial to have both the right amount of coverage and SPF 50 all in one product.”

“I then used my Kristofer Buckle Always Flawless Day to Night Palette and YSL Couture Variation Palette to create a soft brown winged eye.  By using shadow, I was able to create a softer look than liquid liner. YSL Volume Waterproof Mascara was applied to add drama to her eyes.  To finish the look, I used Kristofer Buckle Absolute Nude Lip Crayon in Nude Subdued over Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 for a clean, sophisticated lip.”

Get Dianna Agron’s AMA Beauty Look

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.”
