Get The Look: Emeli Sande

Jocelyn and I were lucky enough to see Emeli Sande in her first concert in Portland, OR. Neither Jocelyn or I were very familiar with Emeli before the concert, we just knew she was huge in the UK. But before she finished her first song, we were both were in awe of Emeli’s talent.

When she started to sing it was obvious why she had garnered such a following in the UK. Backed by a four-piece band, Emeli sounded flawless from her soulful “Heaven,”to her  upbeat numbers, “Breaking The Law” and rousing “Next To Me,”.  It was definitely one of those concerts you leave in awe knowing you saw something special. I have had Emeli playing on Spotify since the concert, I am hooked.

We were lucky enough to go backstage after the show and meet Emeli, this girl is gorgeous and so sweet.I loved her look from flawless skin to her smokey eyes. Here is how to get her look with Rimmel London.

 

To recreate Emeli’s look you need to start with a flawless base, Rimmel’s Match Perfection Skin Tone Adapting Concealer will help even out any blemishes or dicoloration.

Finally top off you look with Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in Pink Blush.

Get The Look: Sofia Vergara’s Perfect Purple Eyes at the 2013 SAG Awards

 

Sofia Vergara’s Screen Actors Guild Awards 2013 Look by Kayleen McAdams
Kayleen wanted to do something fresh and new on Sofia. Her white dress was a bare canvas for her face, and she was able to bring an element of color with a purple eye shadow. It was her first time trying a bright color shadow for an award show.

What do you think of Sofia’s Purple Eye Look?

Face:
I started by applying COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation in Classic Tan (#860) all over Sofia’s face, and then used COVERGIRL + Olay Pressed Powder in Medium along her T-Zone to set the product so it would last all night. I then applied Cheekers Blush is Classic Pink to make her look bright and fresh.

Eyes:
With the eyes, I applied SmokyShadowBlast in Purple Plume all over the lid and then smudged Queen Collection Vivid Impact Eyeliner in Cabernet all along her top and bottom lashes. I finished the look with three coats of Very Black Clump Crusher by LashBlast Mascara. On the lips, I applied LipPerfection Lipliner in Beloved over the entire lip and then topped with the LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Rose Twist to give a hint of glossy sheen.

 

The CoverGirl and Olay products used to create Sofia’s look are available to purchase at your local drugstore.
