GET THE LOOK: RACHEL McADAMS at the BERLIN PREMIERE of “MORNING GLORY”

Hair by Thomas Dunkin for Sebastian Professional

The Hair Look:

Thomas shares his styling tips to recreate Rachel McAdams’ red-hot, soft updo from the Morning Glory premiere in Berlin:

1.       For hair-raising root volume, begin by spraying Sebastian Professional Volupt Spray to the roots of the hair and brush it through the ends with a Mason Pearson hairbrush.

2.       Use a round brush to smooth the hair and wrap 3” sections in small Velcro rollers. Hold each section vertically away from the head for maximum lift at the roots.

3.       Once the whole head has been set and allowed to cool, take each section out and backcomb heavily at the roots leaving the rest of the hair straight. Lightly spray Sebastian Professional Shaper Zero Gravity hairspray into the backcombed sections.

4.       Brush the sides of the hair back and twist the sides and back section into a classic French twist.

5.       Exaggerate the height on top and leave the fringe that doesn’t reach to the back section to gently sweep across the front of the face.

6.       To slightly mess the look to give it a more disheveled, modern feel run your hands through the hair.

7.       To add beautiful sheen without losing any volume, finish the look using Sebastian Professional Trilliant.

New! Estee Lauder in Wild Storm

I adore this color, besides being the most amazing  shade of slate  it’s really easy to apply. I usually make a huge mess when I’m painting my nails but the combo of the brush and cap made it super easy to apply without coating my entire fingertip.

I am on my 3rd day and my polish still looks amazing which is near miraculous since I am either typing or washing something or someone. A polish that looks amazing and lasts, LOVE IT!

NEW!
Estee Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer
$19.00

A luxurious new brilliance at your fingertips. Rich, glossy, quick-drying and long-wearing. Truly intense color is so shiny it looks wet–but don’t be fooled. Resists chipping, even in water. Won’t fade, dull or streak, even in strong sunlight. Specially designed brush shape makes application incredibly easy. Just three strokes of color–middle, left and right–and you’re done. Even the bottle is striking.

It’s a New Year … Get Into the Nude

Going au natural is more popular than ever, and not just natural ingredients. Muted, natural looking colors can be seen throughout this very New Year from nude platform pumps to “greige” nails and everything in between. This new color palette boasts shades of tan, camel, cement, clay, stone and many other muted tones in between giving the traditional Roy G. Biv a run for its money.

For a simple take on the trend without totally committing to going “greige” try Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Lip Gloss in Juicy Beige. This silky lip gloss offers the treatment benefits of a lip balm plus sheer, shimmering light beige color. If you prefer a more matte looking lip try the Maifanshi Lipstick in Nude Beige.

Koh Gen Do’s Fresh Face Cheek Color in Caramel Bronze is another great product to help you get into the nude. The ultra-fine, natural powder provides just enough pigment for healthy looking bronzed skin—perfect for a winter pick-me-up or a summer sun-kissed glow.

Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Lip Gloss in Juicy Beige ……………..…. SRP $21

Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Lipstick in Nude Beige ………………….. SRP $35

Koh Gen Do Fresh Face Cheek Color in Caramel Bronze ……. SRP $38
