Kristen looked amazing last night!

At the 84th annual Academy Awards, Kristen Wiig, a first-time nominee for “Original Screenplay” for Bridesmaids, stole the style spotlight. Below, Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend shares his tips for women looking to achieve her red carpet look at home. Mark used products from the NEW Dove Style+Care collection that nourish and protect hair for long-lasting style. The products are officially available nationwide March 1st.

Here is how to get Kristen’s textured waves:

“I was in love with Kristen’s J. Mendel dress as soon as I saw it; I was so inspired by the silhouette and color. We wanted Kristen’s hair to be full with voluminous waves and have an edgy and sexy texture”

  • - “I started by applying a large dollop of Dove Style+Care Nourishing Curls Whipped Cream Mousse and blow dried the hair with a round brush.
  • - I then took 3-inch sections of hair and sprayed each section with Dove Style+Care Thermal Replenishment Spray and then wrapped the hair around a 1 1/2 inch FHI Heat curling iron.
  • - When all of her hair had been curled, I took a small amount of Dove Style+Care Frizz-Free Shine Cream-Serum in my hands and rubbed them together and then I raked the product through the hair to break up the curls and give the hair shine and definition. I’m beyond obsessed with this product. It gives you the nourishment of a cream and the shine of a serum in one bottle!
  • - I finished her look by spraying Dove Style+Care Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray all over while scrunching the hair with my fingers; this will ensure that the hair is in place all night and give the hair great sexy waves.”

Here is how to get Kristen’ low chignon:

“I really wanted Kristen’s hair to be up in order to show off her amazing Fred Leighton choker and Balenciaga gown. I gave her a deep side part and pulled her hair into a low chignon, creating a silhouette that has a hint of 20s, but the texture keeps it completely modern.
To get this hairstyle I started by applying the new Dove Style+Care Nourishing Amplifier Mousse to her hair and blew it dry with a round brush.
Next I sprayed Oribe Dry Texture Spray all over before pulling the hair into a low chignon and secured with bobby pins.
To keep her in place all night, I finished with the new Dove Style+Care Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray; I love this spray because it has amazing hold and gives the hair great shine that is still soft to the touch.”

Here is how to get Lea’s Soft, Touchable Hair:

“I was so inspired by Lea and her Atelier Versace gown and wanted to give her a hairstyle that was soft, sexy, and touchable.
I started by applying a large dollop of the new Dove Style+Care Nourishing Amplifier Mousse to Lea’s damp hair and blow dried with a large round brush for volume.
Next, I took a dime-size amount of the new Dove Frizz-Free Shine Cream-Serum in my hands and rubbed them together to warm up the product, and then raked my hands through her hair. I am obsessed with this cream; it gives the hair amazing shine and separation, and also nourishes the hair too so it’s like having a styling product and a conditioner in one bottle.
I pulled her hair into a loose bun while Lea had her makeup done to set a loose wave in her hair. Then, I let the hair down and sprayed Oribe Après Beach Spray all over to give the hair that great sexy “second-day” hair.
Just before Lea left for the red carpet, I finished her hairstyle by spraying the new Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray all over to keep her hair in place without it looking stiff or crunchy.”

Get the Look: Kate Beckinsdale and Kristen Wiig 69th Annual Golden Globes

What did celebrities Kristen Wiig and Kate Beckinsale have in common at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards? Each of the stars was wearing luxury performance makeup by Hourglass Cosmetics. The LA brand’s Veil Mineral Primer, already a red-carpet favorite among leading artists, was used on the women to create a flawless canvas and ensure the longevity of their makeup. Both Wiig and Beckinsale carried Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in Imagine in their clutches for touch-ups during the evening.

On Contraband star Kate Beckinsale, a presenter at the Golden Globes, makeup artist Molly Stern focused on radiant skin, bold eyes and high-gloss lips. “Kate’s Roberto Cavalli dress was so ethereal and magical, I wanted to keep the skin looking completely luminous and create a bit of edge with the eyes. The combination of Hourglass’ Veil Mineral Primer and Illusion Tinted Moisturizer is utterly gorgeous. The foundation is sheer, blendable and buildable but still leaves skin looking translucent. I used Film Noir Lash Lacquer to give Kate’s lashes drama, depth and dimension. It’s everything you want in a red-carpet look.”

Kate Beckinsale: Get The Look

Skin: Molly began by moisturizing Kate’s skin with Natura Bisse’s The Cure Cream. She then primed with Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer which creates a flawless canvas for makeup, followed by a light application of Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Sand. Molly loved the sheer finish of the foundation which allowed the British beauty’s gorgeous skin to shine through.

Cheeks: She used the bronze tone in Hourglass Illume Crème-to Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset to add warmth to her skin, and followed with the blush tone applied on the apples of her cheeks. She then dusted Nars Miss Liberty high on her cheekbone to add an extra glow.

Eyes: Molly used the bronze shade of Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy as a base, and set it with Nars Galapagos Eye Shadow, smudged deep into the lid. For an extra pop of light, she dabbed Chanel’s Blazing Gold Ombré Essential over the inner lid. Her lashes are deep and jet-black due to Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara, followed by Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer which was painted over them for an extra kick of drama.

Lips: Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème lipstick in Fresco was used as a base on Kate’s lips, followed by Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in Imagine for a glistening sheen.

For Kristen Wiig’s gorgeous red-carpet look, makeup artist Heba Thorisdottir balanced the star’s nude Bill Blass gown with a symphony of neutral shades. “It was all about fresh, glowing skin and luscious lashes,” says Thorisdottir, who also headed up the makeup on Bridesmaids, the movie Wiig was nominated for as a best actress. “I used Hourglass’ new Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation since it has excellent coverage and staying power. On the cheeks I used Illume Crème to Powder Bronze Duo to create illumination. And to make Kristen’s eyes really pop, I applied Film Noir Mascara with Film Noir Lash Lacquer as a finishing step. It was exactly what was needed.”

Kristen Wiig: Get The Look

Skin: Heba prepped the skin with SKII Signature Moisturizing Cream, followed by Sensai Silk Brightening Cream for a surge of moisture. She then applied Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, a must-have for red carpet events because it ensures that makeup lasts all night. It also neutralizes the skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines and pores and renders makeup water resistant.

Foundation: She used Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation (new for spring) for a matte, full coverage, mixing together two shades, light beige and sand. She also applied Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer in Fair.

Cheeks: To give Kristen’s skin a gorgeous glow, she used Hourglass Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Bronze Light—she used the bronze shade to lightly contour and the highlighter on the cheekbones. She also dabbed MAC Powder Blush in Peaches on the apples of her cheeks.

Eyes: Heba used Hourglass Script Precision Liquid Liner to fill in the lash line, followed by Face Atelier’s Eyeliner in Bronze. On the eyes is D&G Eye Color Quad in Golds. Kristen has naturally long and thick eyelashes, so all she needed was a couple of swipes of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara to enhance, followed by a coat of Film Noir Lash Lacquer for impact. The top coat gave her lashes extra volume, length and high-gloss shine.

Lips: Heba filled in the lips with D&G Precision Lipliner in Nude. She then used Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème lipstick in Fable. The final note? Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in Imagine, a peach champagne shade, for memorably pretty lips.
