Get The Look: Amber Heard at the Calvin Klein Party

All eyes were on Amber Heard at last night’s Calvin Klein party in New York City, looking radiant in a little black dress. “The inspiration for Amber’s red carpet look came entirely from the sexy black dress and heels she had hanging in the bedroom,” said Burt’s Bees lead makeup artist Katey Denno.

“We emphasized her eyes with a purple shadow and an electric purple liner, followed by more than a few coats of black mascara to give the look more of a dramatic feel. She has beautiful alabaster skin, which we perfected with a bit of Vapour Organic foundation, and we emphasized her brows with just a bit of brown shadow”, said Denno.

“We followed it up by contouring her cheeks with a bit of creamy pink cheek cream from Kjaer Wes, which also added a nice ‘rosy’ hue. And to finish the look, I filled in her lips with the new Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon in Sedona Sands, and topped it off with a light layer of Burt’s Bees Lip Shine in Whisper (and patted the product into the skin to take away any shine!).”

Must Have: Burt’s Bees Hydrating Lip Balm with Coconut and Pear

Burts-Bees-review-Hydrating-Coconut-Pear

I thought I had tried every flavor combo of lip balm under the sun. Then I was introduced to the intoxicating mixture of Coconut and Pear from Burt’s Bees. This is my latest obsession it smells and ok tasted amazing. And with one use my lips are softer and more hydrated.

After the first hit I was hooked. Now I have one of these tubes by my bed, in my purse, my car. You name it there is one waiting for me. My lips feel so great I don’t need to use it as much as I do but with this combo can you blame me?

Get the Look: Jaime King at the Sin City 2 Premiere‏

“The look we created tonight is what I like to call ‘evening glamour goddess’”, said Burt’s Bees lead makeup artist Katey Denno. Prepping natural beauty Jaime King for the Sin City 2 premiere, Katey kept Jamie’s look sleek, sexy, and perfectly understated to compliment her stunning Versace gown.

“Wanting to play up Jaime’s luminous, gorgeous skin, I began with a face oil and serum to prep the skin. I kept her foundation super light, using liquid foundation on her t-zone, and adding polka dots and moon beams along her cheekbones, the bridge of her nose, and her Cupid’s bow with a highlighting stick.

Next, I intensified her glowing and healthy cheeks with a little mauve cream blush.

Since this look was all about fresh, I kept Jaime’s eye makeup minimal, exaggerating her lash line with some extra lashes, her lids with a glowing nude eye shadow, and a whole lot of mascara. I finished with a matte brown shadow to define her crease.

Jaime likes a full brow, so I defined her brows with a soft brown shadow and brushed them into place.

Finally — the lips! On her lips, I kept it simple with Burt’s Bees new Lip Crayons in Sedona Sands and Hawaiian Smolder ($9, burtsbees.com). Together, it was the perfect pink-nude to complete the fresh faced look, and with a matte/satin finish, her lips will stand out perfectly, and will stay moisturized all night long.”
