Makeup Artist Ashunta Sheriff did Alicia Keys makeup last night

And yes, that’s lipstick on her teeth… :)

Here are the details:

I wanted to make a separation for Alicia Keys the 12 time award winning Grammy artist and Alicia Keys the emerging actress. The dress was a gorgeous Magenta Armani Prive‘ gown with a sultry front split. I was inspired by Veronica Lake, Lena Horne and the women in Hollywood in the 40′s and early 50′s so bold lips, luminous skin, strong brows and sultry eyes are all a MUST!!!

I started by prepping skin with Elizabeth Arden Gold Ceramide Capsules to hydrate the skin and make the skin have a radiant glow then applied Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Mineral Powder 5. Under eye circles were masked with Mary Kay Beige 2 Concealer. Next I used Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Bronzer in Light Bronze 1 to sculpt and contour her face. I then brought in an eye liner to smoke lower lashes using Makeup Forever Aqua Eyes pencil which is waterproof in Black Purple which was totally different from just standard black and Dior Liquid black liner on top lids. Using Dior 5 Color Palette in Tropical Mist and added Shu Uemura Smoky Layers Lashes for drama. The eye was complete with CoverGirl LashBlast Luxe Mascara in Black Emerald.

Brows are such a key point of the face and the women of the 40′s and 50′s always had amazing ones. So I used a brunette brow pencil from Dior and softened it with Dior Blonde Shimmer brow gel.

The Smashbox body Lights glow to enhance her already tanned skin and the finally the bold hibiscus colored lip set off the lavender and pink tones Alicia had on. Because the lip was so vibrant I knew I would need to use Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Plump perfect lip moisture so that the lip color would last and plump up lips. I used Mary Kay lip pencil in Raspberry all over the lips filling it in so her lips had lasting power and finished the look with Mary Kay Fleur De Polynesie which is a gorgeous pink.

Cheeks were soft peach from Mary Kay called Shy with Dior Skin Flash pen used as a highlight on cheekbones, brow bones and the bridge of the nose.

I used Dior Cleansing Water to set and re-hydrate makeup and give an appearance of dewy skin.

Amy Adam’s Oscar Look by CoverGirl’s Molly Stern

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.
