Beauty Trend: Artsy Eye Liner

beauty-trend-artsy-eye-liner_articleimage.jpg

Forget a smooth, single line—backstage at Zero + Maria Cornejo’s fall 2009 show, makeup maestro Dick Page “sketched” multiple black lines onto models’ peepers using soft, varied brushstrokes. “We always do something a bit abstract for Maria. The eye look is based on one of the prints in the collection,” says Page. “The cream liner gives a dense black finish and the Shiseido Hydro-Powder Eye Shadow in Violet Visions provides traces of color. There’s no contoured, detailed shading—it’s just fun.” Adding to the playful spontaneity: Each model’s liner-shadow etching was individualized (though a healthy coating of black Shiseido Perfect Mascara remained constant).

Steal this look: Gisele Bunchen’s sexy bedhead

You might not be able to afford the designer clothes or luxe getaways but now you can at least steal the look of Giselle’s sexy bedhead. Glamour magazine has tips from the pros for do it yourself!

Want bedhead hair? Try sleeping.

Who doesn’t want Gisele’s perfectly sexy “I just got out of bed with Tom” unkempt waves? (Some of us might not mind the Tom part of the equation either, but let’s stick to hair for now.) Turns out the secret is rolling around in bed! “I tell her to wash her hair the night before an event instead of that morning,” says her stylist, Harry Josh. “This way, she sleeps on it and gets a good matted bedhead-y texture.” To prepare her hair for an event, Josh uses a giant iron—the biggest you can find—on her second-day hair to give it a bit of bend, along with dry shampoo (like Klorane’s version) to give it fullness, adding some John Frieda Thermal Frizz Ease Serum on the ends to create a little shine and separation between the waves.

I love Amanda Seyfried.  She shot to stardom opposite Lindsay Lohan in 2004′s Mean Girls.  She went on to play Sarah Hendrickson in HBO’s polygamy drama Big Love.  (Man, I looooooooove Big Love)  Last year she sang and danced in the mega blockbuster Mamma Mia, which earned over $500 million!

Get the Look – Christina Hendricks!

Mad Men is hands down my favorite show on television right now! Christina Hendricks, who plays the sexy secretary Joan on the show, appeared beautiful as ever at last night’s Emmy Awards.

So how was this look accomplished?

Prepping Christina Hendricks for the evening, her makeup artist Georgie Eisdell says, “The look we went for with Christina had a little 20′s influence. I wanted it to keep Christina’s makeup really fresh, clean and elegant. I prepared her skin with La Mer’s The Moisturizing Lotion – it’s perfect to hydrate the skin with being greasy and a perfect base for foundation.

Next, I love La Mer’s Treatment Fluid Foundation SPF 15 for Christina. It is light on the skin but gives excellent coverage where needed.

Under her eyes I used La Mer’s new Radiant Concealor SPF 25 – a genius product, it goes on so easily and does not cake under the eye.

Before I started on her eye I lathered her lips with La Mer’s The Lip Balm. I love using this on Christina; she has full lips so keeping them hydrated is really important and when it’s time to apply lipstick it goes on beautifully.”
