Selena Gomez at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards: Get The Look with John Frieda Hair Care‏

Teen Choice Awards 2014 - Arrivals

INSPIRATION: Selena’s very tailored Saint Laurent suit

GET THE LOOK: This look “weaves confident, youthful, sexy, a hint of bold, but still very sweet,” said celebrity stylist Lona Vigi

  • To start, Vigi misted Selena’s hair with an Evian atomizer in order to prep her hair and keep it in the cleanest condition.
  • Next, she applied a dime sized amount of the John Frieda Frizz Ease Original Six Effects Serum into her hands, and rubbed them together before going into Selena’s hair, starting at the roots and pulling all the way to the ends. “This serum is like a BB Cream for the hair,” said Vigi. “It covers so many vital bases that you end up using multiple products for, instead you can cut all of that out of the equation and just have this one master product.”
  • In the front, Vigi sprayed John Frieda Frizz Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray while the hair was still damp in order to keep all the little baby hairs around the frame of the face tamed down.
  • Then, while blowing drying on a medium heat with the Harry Josh Pro Tools Dryer, Vigi sprayed the hair continuously to ensure the hair stayed back into the ponytail.
  • Next Vigi clipped the hair up and took super small sections and went over them with a flat iron, getting as close to the scalp as possible.
  • Vigi created a center part and then gathered Selena’s hair by the nape of her neck to create the ponytail. Once it was secure, she patted John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch-Up Creme into the ponytail so that it looked extra strong and shiny. “We wanted the ponytail to be the accessory to her look,” said Vigi.
  • As a final touch, Lona secured the ponytail with a long, black ribbon.

Shailene Woodley Beauty Look: Teen Choice Awards‏

FOX's 2014 Teen Choice Awards - Press Room

Last night celebrity makeup artist, Roxy, was behind the scenes with Shailene Woodley getting her red carpet ready for the Teen Choice Awards, where she picked up awards for Choice Movie Actress in an Action/Adventure for her role in Divergent and Choice Movie Actress in a Drama, for her role in The Fault in our Stars.

“We wanted to keep Shailene’s makeup clean and not competitive with her gorgeous and colorful Peter Pilotto dress,” said Roxy. “Using monochromatic colors on her eyes and cheeks, I defined her features to make them pop while not overwhelming her with color. Her soft plum rose lip – which we created using tarte’s LipSurgence™ matte lip tint in hope, was the perfect finishing touch to her ultra-feminine look.”

Roxy began by spraying Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir Spray all over Shailene’s face, neck and décolletage to revive, sooth and hydrate her skin. She then prepped her skin further, applying tarte’s clean slate™ flawless 12-hr brightening primer with tarte’s the buffer™ airbrush finish bamboo foundation brush which helped spread the primer all over the face, evenly and fast. “This primer gives off a subtle sheen while delivering a blend of vitamins to the skin and holds makeup for hours,” said Roxy.

Roxy applied tarte’s Amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation in fair-light honey with tarte’s airbuki bamboo powder foundation brush all over the face in circular motions to melt the makeup into Shailene’s skin. “I started at the center of her face and blended out to her jawline until it was seamless,” said Roxy. “This powder foundation does an excellent job at providing great coverage while leaving the complexion still looking natural with a velvet-like finish.”

“Since color was not a big part of this look, I wanted to do more with sculpting to bring out her beautiful features,” said Roxy. She played up the definition on Shailene’s gorgeous cheek bones with tarte’s Amazonian clay matte waterproof bronzer in park ave princess™. For this look Roxy applied the bronzer right under Shailene’s cheek bones and softly at her temples.

“Since glowing skin is always a priority to us, I applied Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Aqua Foundation Illuminator down the bridge of her nose, around the outer corners and above her brows in a C shape manner,” said Roxy. Roxy used her fingers to get the right amount of product applied evenly and took a sponge over it to melt it perfectly into Shailene’s skin.

For the eyes, Roxy started by applying tarte’s clean slate™ 360º creaseless 12-hr smoothing eye primer. She wanted to sculpt the eyes in a monochromatic manner to keep it simple while still bringing out the best in Shailene’s gorgeous eyes. Roxy started by applying tarte’s Amazonian clay waterproof cream eyeshadow in shimmering bronze along the edges of her top and bottom lash lines. She diffused it softly with tarte’s undercover lover™ bamboo concealer brush, which allowed her to blend it softly but keep the strength of the color intact. Roxy then applied some nude-taupe shadows in the outer corners of Shailene’s eyes from tarte’s rainforest after dark limited-edition colored clay eye & cheek palette.

On Shailene’s eyebrows Roxy used tarte’s colored clay tinted brow gel in medium brown to give them a little more structure than usual and keep them in place. “This brow gel is awesome because the brush is so tiny it makes detailing the brows naturally very easy,” said Roxy.

“Shailene loves to apply her own mascara and swiped on 2 coats of tarte’s gifted™ Amazonian clay smart mascara to finish the look to her eyes,” said Roxy. “This mascara added a bit more drama to her eyes by lengthening and curling her lashes perfectly.”

On her lips Shailene applied tarte LipSurgence™ matte lip tint in hope straight from the pen. “This muted down-plum rose color was a wonderful finish to Shailene’s monochromatic look because it fit with in the color family of her eye shadow and cheeks, but added a bit of feminine softness to her over all look.”

#Dating Dealbreaker?

Whitening-Lightening-3

Could whiter teeth lead to better relationships and job growth? According to Match.com, teeth are the number one standard by which both men and women judge their potential dating partners, ahead of other dating dealbreakers like bad grammar, hair or clothes. Kelton Research also found that 58% of applicants are more likely to be offered a job and 53% offered a raise if their teeth are whiter. Although the benefits of whiter teeth are more than just cosmetic, many consumers are skeptical of at-home whiteners due to chemicals or sensitivity to ingredients.

Whitening Lightning’s chemical-free ZERO White System is formulated with baking soda and pomegranate extract for a sensitivity-free, whiter smile. Simply dry teeth with the provided wipes and brush on the gel formulation. To activate the formulation, place the provided UV light on teeth for 20 minutes and brush off for a whiter smile. The formulation is so gentle, that it can also be worn overnight.

I have this product – and I’ve tried it – and I think it REALLY works. I’d post pictures of my own teeth, but that just grosses me right out. :) You’ll have to take my word for it. I love how easy this system is to use – and the results are clear! I have to pick up the Whitening Pen for continued use!

Whitening Lightning is available via www.whiteninglightning.com – ZERO White System, $115 | ZERO White Teeth Whitening Pen, $29
