”I started by applying mark For Goodness Face Antioxidant Skin Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 followed by mark Primed for Perfection Face Primer all over Jessica’s skin. After creating a strong, moisturized base, I applied mark Min-A-Real Cream-To-Powder Foundation with Mineral Pigments in Buff using the mark Foundation Brush. Next, I touched up any imperfections by dabbing mark Good Riddance Hook Up Concealer in Fair/Light under her eyes and around her nose.”

“For a radiant glow, I used the mark Foundation Brush to apply mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Peachy to the apples of Jessica’s cheeks. I dusted mark Matte-Nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder in Ivory/Nude and layered mark Good Glowing Custom Pick Powder Blush in Cameo Glo on the tops of her cheeks using the mark Blush + Bronzer Brush to set the look.”

“I applied various gold and copper shades from mark On The Dot Netural Eye Color Compact to her eyelid from her lash line to her crease using the mark All Over Eye Shadow Brush, and along her lower lash line using the mark Flat Eyeliner Brush for some added definition. Next, I lined mark Keep it Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Entourage along her top lash line using the mark Eyeliner Brush, winging the outer corner up for a cat eye effect. I finished by applying two coats of mark Lash All You Want High-Volume Mascara in Black to Jessica’s top and bottom lashes.”

Get the Look: Emmanuelle Chriqui’s Hollywood Night Out.


Get the Look with Makeup Artist Sarah Uslan

Rushing may have been the theme of the day, but Emmanuelle Chriqui’s soft red lips and natural eyes show anything but haste. The Entourage star looked flawless at the 2nd Annual Hollywood Rush event held last Sunday, February 19 – all thanks to celebrity makeup artist Sarah Uslan of the Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon in LA.

Sarah offers up her step-by-step for creating Emmanuelle’s flawless finish here!

It’s In the Eyes: “I started with Bobbi Brown Brown Metal Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow and swiped a soft amount over the lid,” says Sarah. “Blending out the edges with my ring finger.” Follow with Bobbi Brown Really Black Ink Gel eyeliner paired with Dolce & Gabanna’s angled eyeliner brush to create a defined kitten eye. Start with a light amount of liner as close to the lash line as possible, then from the outside corner begin to build a thicker line while making sure that the angle faces up and out to achieve your cat-like look.

Glowing Skin: Using Armani Luminous Silk Foundation with a foundation brush, start from the forehead and work down the middle of the face and then out to the jaw-line. Always be sure to blend the seam of the neck and the jaw. Then take Bobbi Brown Bronzer in Golden Light and dust over cheek bones and forehead to contour. Illamasqua Blush in Chased brushed to the apples of the cheeks with Dolce & Gabanna’s blush brush will give that perfect complimentary soft pink cheek you need when doing a red lip.

The Lips: “The perfect red for Emmanuelle was Dolce & Gabanna Lip Color in Scarlet which I traced over her lip with a lip brush and then patted on with the actual lipstick for more pigment.”

The Finish: Dust Dmk Powder in Dark Translucent over T-zone to cut any shine. Use Laura Mercier’s Brunette Brow Pencil to add definition to the brows. The final steps in completing this classic, clean and pretty look.

Tips For A Perfect Ponytail from Ouidad’s Morgan Willhite.

Runway Beauty Trend Ponytails Tail Tips from Ouidad Creative Director, Morgan Willhite

Always a constant in a woman’s hair repertoire, it now seems the ponytail is more of a hot trend than staple look. Curl driven, soft and wavy ponytails were spotted on a plethora of runways at New York Fashion Week over the last few days. From the looped and tucked tails at Carolina Herrera to the embellished ponytail twists at Derek Lam, locks in favor of ponytails were clearly polished, playful, setting the stage for hair trends in 2012. Morgan Willhite, Creative Director at Ouidad offers her expertise to replicate these runway inspired ponytails for curly girls nationwide.

“The best part about ponytails is that they are low maintenance yet they look high fashion. Although they are a great option for most hair types, they are especially attractive on curly hair,” says Willhite. Ponytails can be fun or sophisticated and the only requirement is that your hair is at least medium length. “All you need is a touch of the Ouidad Clear Control pomade, a few sprays of the new Frizz and Fly Away Fighter and a hair elastic to make this trend work for you,” says Willhite.

Morgan’s Tail Tips

  • Brush your hair with a comb or the Ouidad Double Detangler ($24 at and apply the Ouidad Climate Control Gel ($22 at throughout the hair to reduce frizz
  • Put an elastic band around your right wrist and hold your hair in your left hand; with your right hand brush the hair back smoothly; curly hair tends to be dry, so spray a bit of water to keep it damp as you work
  • Open the hand holding the hair as you brush the hair through; smooth out the front adding Ouidad Climate Control Gel to control curls
  • Use your left hand to slide the elastic off your right wrist and onto the base of the ponytail
  • Let some curls escape the ponytail for a romantic look
  • Try a loose ponytail if you have thick curly hair
  • Apply the new Ouidad Frizz and Flyaway Fighter ($22 at to the finished look to help reduce frizz and keep the flyaways tamed
