Get The Look: Katy Perry and Becky G. at the 2014 VMA’s

2014 MTV Video Music Awards - Backstage & Audience

So what did you think of Katy Perry and Riff Raff’s homage to Britney and Justin in the all denim outfits?

Katy Perry Beauty Look by Jake Bailey:
Katy Perry’s VMA look tonight was quintessential Katy. Bright red lips, black liquid liner and big lashes. I first prepped her skin and then matched her skin tone to COVERGIRL’s Ready, Set Gorgeous Foundation in Warm Beige and began by buffing a thin layer all over her face and neck using a flat tipped, soft bristled kabuki style brush for a seamless airbrushed effect. I highlighted her under eye area and cheekbones with Ready, Set, Gorgeous Concealer in light/medium.

I began her eye makeup by blending a warm brown shadow, Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Scorching Cocoa into the crease of her eyelids and a pearlescent white shadow Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Blazing White onto her eyelid and browbone for highlights. I also dusted some of that same pearlescent shadow onto the ridge of her cheekbones for an extra glow. I then created a sharp jet black cat eye using Bombshell Intensity Liner. I finished the eye look with several coats of Bombshell Volume Mascara.

I then sculpted her cheekbones using the darker shade from the COVERGIRL’s Clean Glow Blush compact and added warmth to the apples of her cheeks with the paler peachier shades in the compact.

I completed the look by lining her lips with LipPerfection Lip Liner in Hot and the matching LipPerfection Lip Color shade in Hot 305. I topped the lipstick with a coat of Flamed Out Shadow Pencil in Crystal Flame for a metallic sheen. Just before she left I dusted her with a touch of Ready, Set, Gorgeous Powder in light/medium to keep her looking fresh for the red carpet.

Becky G. Beauty Look by Sarah Uslan:
Becky G.I started with the COVERGIRL Ready, Set Gorgeous Concealer and Foundation, which has powder built-in to help fight shine. I used the concealer in a V shape under her eyes to give them a bit of a lift before putting the foundation over – adding to the flawless overall look of her skin. Then I used bronzing powder to contour her cheekbones and also on the forehead and neck area to warm her skin tone plus Classic Color Blush in Silk Roses on the apples of her cheeks. Then I set the whole look with powder.

To bring in the silver in the studs on her skirt, I used the creamy Bombshell Shine Shadow in Ice Queen. It has these reflective pigments so your eyes dazzle when the light hits your face. Then with the Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Molten Black, I created a V from the outside edge of the lash line and going into the crease and blending inward. For shadow, I used Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Shadows in Drama Eyes and blended that all in. To finish off the look, I used the Bombshell Intensity Liner to create a bigger-than-normal, 60′s-inspired cat eye and layered on thee coats of Clump Crusher Mascara on the top lashes and one coat on the bottom. You get a ton of volume, and you can layer it on without clumps – perfect for touch-ups throughout the night. I also used a little dab of the silver shadow on the inner corner of the eye for a pop of shimmery color there.

For lips, we wanted something with a great color payout and also lustrous vibrant shine for the carpet, so we went with Colorlicious Lip Gloss in Berrylicious. For a while, matte lips were a big trend but gloss is definitely having a moment and is back in a big way!

Kate Upton strips down for new Sam Edelman campaign!

1408630359233_wps_1_Kate_Upton_Returns_as_Fac

Kate Upton is back for the third consecutive campaign as the face of Sam Edelman’s fall line.

The 22-year-old Sports Illustrated model is photographed lying in bed, naked, holding a gorgeous burgundy shoe from the new collection.

‘This campaign reveals Kate in an intimate one-on-one moment,’ footwear designer Sam Edelman told WWD.

‘With the launch of our apparel line this season, we can dress her from toe to head but sometimes all she wants are her Sams.’

Photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott shot Miss Upton in London on a private set, and Trey Laird directed the campaign.

Famous for his platform heels, Mr Edelman said he chose Miss Upton, who recently starred alongside Cameron Diaz in The Other Woman, because she ‘epitomizes the classic American Beauty and yet she’s approachable.

‘And I love that she’s curvy. I also love that she and I share the same passion for horses,’ he admitted.

The designer’s decision to collaborate with Miss Upton was apparently instigated when he spotted the former horseback riding champion wearing Edelman’s equestrian-style boots.

Mr Edelman is a regular on the Florida horse circuit with his wife, Libby, and the couple have a world-class equestrian stable that houses up to 40 prize-winning horses on their 65-acre Connecticut land.

The shoe designer has a theory on what it is about stilettos women love so much.

‘Shoes create a chemical reaction in women…especially heels,’ said the 61-year-old, who chose blonde bombshell Kate Upton to star in his latest campaign.

‘Whenever I ask a woman about Sam Edelman [heels], she automatically smiles and tells me the story of her favorite pair. I’ve found this to be true over and over again. Women can’t help loving shoes and I can’t help loving to make them smile,’ he told MailOnline.

It was love at first sight with the new Zoya Naturel Duex Collection. I love all the creamy neutral shades, they are perfect for Fall. If you have’t tried a Zoya polish yet you are missing out. The polish brush makes quick and clean application a breeze. The best part is they dry really fast and are very chip resistant.  Be sure to grab some of these great new colors for Fall while supplies last.

I really love all these shades which is hard to say with most collections. The standouts for me have to be Spence and Madeline, both gorgeous neutrals and unbelievable shine!
