New Couture Colour at Sephora!

My roots are in need of a serious touch up, I am a tempted to give the new Couture Color at Sephora a try ( don’t tell my stylist).

Rich in antioxidants from Brazilian-found Pequi oil, the collection ensures your hair maintains its healthy color and radiance, while enriching it with unbeatable shine and luster between colorings. COUTURE COLOUR works to make your hair look and feel professionally done—from your own home.

What else you need to know:
For best results, stay within two shades of your natural hair color. The lighter your natural color, the more accurate the results will be to the shade on the box. A fresh haircut prior to hair coloring is suggested, as split and damaged ends could absorb extra color and create an uneven look. Hair color is permanent and lifts up to two shades.

Get the Look: Marisa Tomei 2011 Oscars

CELEBRITY MAKE-UP ARTIST MATTHEW VANLEEUWEN
CREATED PRESENTER MARISA TOMEI’S RED CARPET LOOK
FOR THE 83rd ANNUAL OSCAR AWARDS
USING EXCLUSIVELY ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS PRODUCT

For Marisa Tomei’s gorgeous red carpet look, makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen worked exclusively with Anastasia Beverly Hills product.

Matthew took the Anastasia Highlighting Crème Duo in St Tropezdipped into the crème blush and applied it in gentle back and forth sweeps across Marisa’s smiling cheeks. (Pro tip: smiling makes the job mistake proof, because it helps the blush go where it’s supposed to). Using the same brush, Matthew dipped into the highlighting crème and brushed the tops of the lips and nose with the illuminating fluid. The skin was “so translucent and smooth looking!”

Turning to brows, Matthew filled and shaped Marisa’s with Anastasia Brow Wiz Pencil in Brunette  and created a few feathery strokes in the brow and to define the bottom edge of the brow. Matthew then took Anastasia Brow Duality Penc and placed a bit of the matte highlighter just at the arch of the brow. The total effect is ultra defined and crisp brows that perfectly frame the face.

Moving to the eyes, Matthew took Anastasia Illumin8 Eye Shadow Palette 1  and dusted the soft pink sorbet shadow all over the eye to brighten and tone the skin. Matthew raved that “the shadow is so smoothing and imparts a modern velvety texture.” Then Matthew took Illumin8 palette 3  and blended the mauve shade into the crease “to create the perfect shade of orchid.” Next, Matthew lined the eye with a thin line of black pencil and smudged the sparkly blue/black shadow from Illumin8 palette #3 into the lashline to create a softer, smokey eyeline.

The eye makeup was finished by curling the lashes and applying two coats of Anastasia Lash Lifting Mascara, which Matthew says “has reached cult status with many of my clients…it’s incredible.”

Finally to finish Marisa’s stunning look, Matthew applied Anastasia Hydrafull Lip Gloss in Sangria , a gorgeous soft amethyst berry shade.
