I wanted to let you guys know that CoverGirl’s Makeup Artist Molly Stern did Amy Adam’s beautiful makeup last night, and thought that you might be interested in learning how she achieved the look.

Here are the details from Molly:

First of all I have to say I was the most excited I have ever been this morning. I couldn’t sleep a wink. I was dreaming about Amy’s makeup.

I started by prepping the face with Jurlique Citrus Spray to give the face a healthy lift then I gave Amy a light facial massage with La Mer moisturizing lotion.

Next I based her face with YSL Perfect Touch #2.

Then l blushed her cheeks with Chantecaille Aqua Blush in Frivolous as a peachy base with Chantecaille Sesame Peach eyeshadow over top. Her eyes are based with NARS cream eyeshadow in Maracaibo. Over that I blended Shu Uemura shadow in gray 960 mixed with shu uemura shadow in purple 700 all over the lid up into the crease. With a flat shadow brush I added a touch of NARS shadow in Ondine on the inside corner of her lid to give the eye a little gold hint. I lined the top and underneath of her eye with Trish McEvoy’s Arabian nights definer. To soften the line underneath I added a soft smudge of Suqqu lavender shadow in #27.

On her lashes I put 1 soft coat of CoverGirl Exact Eyelights Mascara in Black Ruby. On her lip I based her lip with La Mer lipbalm then applied a thin coat of Outlast Lipstain by CoverGirl in Plum Pout. Then a sheer layer of Shu Uemura wine lip color in 265 with a dot of CoverGirl Wetslicks AmazeMint in Plum Crazy at the center of her lip for a little extra pout. That’s also what she took in her bag for touch ups.

Inspiration. A cross between Talouse Latrec’s dancing girls and the watercolor feeling of a Gustav Klimt painting.

The day was amazing. My goal was to make sure that her makeup was saturated but not overdone. I wanted to give her a face without competing with the dress.

Get the Look: The “Patty Cake Curl” As Seen on “The City”

image002.jpg

As seen on the style-making show “The City,” hair-curling drama takes on a whole new meaning! Both Olivia and Whitney have worn long, flowing and natural curls that evoke a vintage glamour.

These easy-to-follow tips from stylist Ryan Nickulas of the Ryan Darius Salon in the West Village will help you achieve this look, which he calls the “Patty Cake Curl,” the type of flowing curl that flaunts a perfect circle after you wrap hair around the fingers.

· Part hair in the middle or to either side.

· Take a small or large section of hair and wrap it around your finger in a circle to create a pin curl.

· Take a flat iron and close it around the curl. (Make sure that you remove your finger from the curl first!!)

· Press the iron closed for 15-20 seconds to create the perfect curl that a curling iron can’t achieve.


Scarlett Johansson for Dolce & Gabbana.

Scarlett Johansson is the face of the new Dolce & Gabbana line of cosmetics, the Italian designing duo has revealed.

“Scarlett is sure of herself. She’s a beautiful girl, but she’s really easygoing. She is very Dolce & Gabbana.”

The Golden Globe-nominated actress was recently photographed for a series of sexy Marilyn Monroe-inspired print ads slated to debut on the pages of Fashion Bibles later this year.

“We see makeup as another thing for women, like a dress. We worked on the makeup line like we work on a clothing collection — you can change makeup like you can change your clothes, depending on your mood,” Stefano Gabbana told WWD on Friday.

The lipsticks will be scented with rose, Gabbana explained. “We wanted to create makeup with a scent. Domenico and I remember when we were children and opened our mother’s handbags — the scent of her lipstick trailed out. I observed that when women open makeup, they smell it first.”

Prices will range from $20 for nail lacquer to $59 for powder foundation.

D&G Makeup will launch this Spring.
