Jamie Greenberg Explains How to Get Nikki’s Radiant look:

Eyes

“Nikki has gorgeous dark eyes that I really wanted to play up. I started by smudging mark Eyemarker Color On Line in Java along her upper lash line, followed by two coats of mark Scanda-Lash Hook Up Mascara on the top lashes. For her bottom lashes, I took the tip of the mascara wand and carefully coated each lash for definition, then brushed it out with the wand for separation. I finished by applying mark I-mark Custom Pick Eyeshadow in Nomadic to her lids and Fairy Dust in her crease.”

Face

“I applied mark Face Xpert Flawless Touch Makeup in Natural to create a smooth canvas followed by mark Get Bright Hook Up Highlighter under her eyes to hide any signs of dark circles. I finished by applying a combination of mark Good Glowing Custom Pick Powder Blush in Cameo Glo to the apples of her cheeks, and mark Glow Xpert Face Shimmer in Champagne to the top portion to really bring out the contours of her cheekbones. To create an overall matte finish, I used mark Cheat Sheet Shine Blotters.”

Lips

“To finish off her look, I used mark Dew Drenched Moisturlicious Lip Color in Toffee on her lips, with a layer of mark Pro Gloss Hook Up Plumping Lip Shine in Spice for added shine.”

How to Get Lauren’s Retro Look:

Face

“For a perfectly polished complexion, I evened out Lauren’s skin tone with mark Powder Buff Natural Skin Foundation in Natural, for a super-velvety finish. To emphasize the delicate contours of her face, I applied mark Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder starting in the hollow of her cheeks, then directly under her cheekbones, up to her temples, across her hairline and under her jaw line. I then swirled mark Good Glowing Custom Pick Powder Blush in Star Glo on the apples of her cheeks for a subtle rosy glow.”

Eyes

“Lauren loves her signature winged out liquid liner look which I amped up tonight by drawing mark Get In Line Hook Up Liquid Waterproof Eyeliner in Painted Black a little thicker in the outer corners of her eyes. I then coated her lashes in mark Make It Big Lash Plumping Mascara in Raven for thickness and length and added individual lashes to complete the look.”

Lips

“I gave Lauren a classic old-Hollywood red pout with mark Dew Drenched Moisturlicious Lip Color in Wave, a true Hollywood red that is warm enough to look gorgeous on everyone. To properly set the color to last all evening, I dipped a cotton swab in mark Matte-nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder in Natural Buff and carefully traced the outer rims of the lips. For that final touch of extra impact and depth, I added a dab of mark Belle of the Ball Lip Balm in Sheer Red in the center of the lips with my finger.”

screenshot011.jpg

mark Spokeswoman Lauren Conrad made her mark at the 6th Annual Hollywood Style Awards on Sunday presenting the Style Award to mark Celebrity Stylist Britt Bardo (who’s first capsule collection for mark debuted this month (www.meetmark.com). Lauren’s fresh-faced and super trendy look can be recreated thanks to Celebrity Makeup Artist Amy Nadine’s beauty secrets.

How to Get Lauren Conrad’s Cheeky look:

Inspiration

“In honor of stylist Britt Bardo, Lauren mixed rocker-chic with a girly-glam! Her floral bubble dress was paired with studded punk-inspired pumps and her braided half-up hair-do contrasted perfectly with her hot pink lips.”

Face

“For her cheeks, I applied mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Cheeky, a perfect true pink cream blush, on the apples of her cheeks. I then dusted mark Twinklebelle in Rose, a shimmery pearlized powder, above her cheekbones and along her collar bone and shoulders to give her skin an overall youthful glow.”

Lips

“To get Lauren’s bold lip, I filled in her entire lip with mark Kissink Lip Tintmarker in Berry Bitten. This lip stain is a favorite of mine and Lauren’s as it lasts all night without every being dry or flaky. Finally, I added a top coat of mark Lip Exotics Lip Lacquer Hook Up in Pop to give her pink lips a luscious, wet, finish.”

Eyes

“To balance out Lauren’s pink lip, I applied a thick line of mark Get In Line Hook Up Liquid Waterproof Eyeliner in Painted Black. I wanted to keep the emphasis on her winged-out cat eyes, so I left her lower lash line undefined, except for a coat of mark Make It Big Lash Plumping Mascara in Raven applied to her top and bottom lashes.”

mark Spokeswoman Lauren Conrad made her mark at the launch of her new fashion line for Kohl’s this week! Celebrity Makeup Artist Amy Nadine spills all her secrets for creating Lauren’s feminine yet edgy look.

How to Get Lauren Conrad’s Dramatic look:

Face

“I started by powdering Lauren’s entire face with mark Matte-nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder in Natural/Buff, and then lightly dusted the apples of her cheeks with her favorite, mark Good Glowing Mosaic Blush in Hush Baby. To add more definition to her cheekbones, I added a contouring layer of mark Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder in Bronze.”

Eyes

“Lauren never strays from her signature winged-out cat eyes, so to add some instant drama, I complimented them with a black ‘smoky under-eye’. Blending is key for this look and edges should be smeared to add depth. I started by lining her eyes with mark Get in Line Waterproof Liquid Liner in Painted Black. Then I used mark Eyemarker Color On Line in Jet a few millimeters past the outside corners of her lower lash lines. I drew a thick line that became thinner as I dragged it inward, stopping 3/4 of the length of her eye. I then smudged it gently with my pinky finger to smoke it out. Next, I took my mark Eyeliner Brush and dipped it in mark I-Mark Custom Eye Shadow in Corset dusting it on top of the line a couple times to make the original line even thicker. Then I coated her lashes with mark Make It Big Lash Plumping Mascara in Raven.”

Lips

“I completed her look by applying mark Dew Drenched Moisturlicious Lip Color in Skinny Dip followed by mark Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss in m.powerment Gold for a glossy, shimmery finish.”
