Behind The Scenes: Brooke Burke-Charvet’s Cover Look for New You Magazine

BEHIND THE LOOK: BROOKE BURKE-CHARVET on NEW YOU magazine’s Spring 2014 cover on newsstands now
Celebrity makeup artist Spencer Barnes and hair stylist Paul Norton explain the natural, fresh Spring look they created for the Dancing with the Stars host

THE INSPIRATION:
“For this look I was inspired by Brooke’s radiant personality. Brooke is warm, light-hearted, playful and kind. So I wanted her look to be fresh – yet defined. I played up her natural beauty by choosing colors that were more neutral and complimented her complexion.” – Spencer Barnes for Solo Artists. Spencer’s clients include Amy Adams, Amber Heard, Jessica Biel and Olivia Wilde.

A prominent Spring makeup trend, natural and nude faces softened up the Spring 2014 runways at shows including Alexander Wang, Balmain, Jean Paul Gaultier and Chloé. A neutral look allows for the clothes – and the woman – to take center stage.

HOW TO GET THE LOOK: HAIR
“Brooke’s look for her cover shoot was intended to look healthy and shiny. First, I applied Oribe Gandioes hair plumping mousse to dampened hair and tousled dry also using a medium sized round brush to round out the ends of the hair. I then took a couple of random sections throughout the hair and with a 1 1/4 inch curling iron bent the hair back away from the face and I then used Oribe Shine Light Reflection spray to give the hair a nice luster and shine. Lastly, I had Brooke flip her head upside down and I ran my hand throughout her hair and broke up the hair bringing much more life to the look. I then sealed the deal with Loreal Elnett hairspray and we were able to begin shooting!” – Hair Stylist Paul Norton for Tracey Mattingly, who has worked on celebrities including actresses Robin Wright, Brit Marling and Elizabeth Banks, among others.

I had my first try of the Dr. Brandt ruby crystal glow through a deluxe sample. Within the first week I noticed my face looked much brighter and during the day it was less oily. I recently had the chance to try out the Dr. Brandt glow travel kit and it really is doing wonders for my skin.

A long summer in the sun left me with some sun spots and uneven spots on my face. I have been using this duo for almost two weeks and I am really happy with the improvements. My skin is looking bright, radiant and my pores even look smaller. This is a truly great duo if you are ready to really see some results. The price tag is on the higher end but the dup lives up to its promises and works for every penny spent!
