Get The Look: Lea Michele 2012 MET Ball

All eyes were on Lea Michele when she stepped onto the red carpet at the 2012 MET Ball yesterday evening. Celebrity Makeup Artist Melanie Inglessis was the visionary behind the starlet’s glamorous beauty look. Melanie put the focus on Lea’s eyes by lining them with a deep plum liner and then layered copper toned eye shadows on the actress’s lids. Using a soft crease brush, she blended the edges of the liner with the shadow to create definition and give that smokey eye effect. Melanie then upped the drama by swiping a dark eye shadow over the liner and added two coats of black mascara for a finishing touch.

To offset the intensity of the eyes, Melanie kept the rest of Lea’s face simple: she added a rosy flush of color on her cheekbones and opted for a natural lip, using a lipstick only to enhance Lea’s own lip color.

Get The Look: Abbie Cornish MET Ball Beauty


Abbie Cornish looked radiant at the MET Ball in NYC last night! The gorgeous “Sucker Punch” star was all smiles as she walked the red carpet, confidently showing off an asymmetrical finger-waved updo created by celebrity stylist and Nexxus Creative Director Kevin Mancuso.

“I wanted the look to be effortless, but constructed at the same time,” said Mancuso. “To soften Abbie’s updo, I created classic finger waves, then shook them out for an ethereal, romantic finish.”

Kevin Mancuso shares these simple steps to recreate the look at home:

PREP:

· Apply a generous amount of Nexxus ProMend Split End Binding Bodifying Mousse all over damp hair to bind damaged ends back together while creating texture and body.

STYLE:

· Blow dry hair, massaging mousse in at the roots to increase volume.

· Use a medium round brush to smooth small sections of hair into velcro rollers for more body. Let rollers cool to set the curl while you apply makeup.

· Remove rollers and apply a small amount of ProMend Split End Binding Smoothing Shine Serum throughout for healthy, luminous shine.

· Now use a small barrel curling iron to create waves in the front section of your hair.

· Back comb the rest of your hair and spray with Nexxus Comb Thru Touchable Finishing Mist for extra support and light hold.

· Pin sections of hair up, working around to the back of your head, gently twisting and pushing up for volume.

· Gently finger tease to give hair a slightly fluffy, fuzzy finish.

FINISH:

· Spray hair with Nexxus Maxxium Superior Hold Finishing Mist to ensure the style stays put all night.

Kim Kardashian tweets a new picture saying “No fake lashes today!”

But are we really buying it? I bet she has no fake lashes on the bottom, but how about the top? I don’t know if I’m believing those top lashes are 100% real.

She claims she has great lashes because she’s Armenian. “No fake lashes today! #LoveBeingArmenian”

What do you think? Is she telling the truth?

Zooey Deschanel signs on as the new face of Pantene!

Zooey Deschanel has just been named the new face of Pantene! The actress follows in the footsteps of other actresses, Naomi Watts and Eva Mendes.

She’ll appear in the Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign, and the actress is said to be “so excited” to be working with the brand.

In her usual quirky rhetoric, the 32-year-old said in a behind-the-scenes video: ‘I am so excited to be a part of the Pantene family. I’m really into hair! So, I just like hair, so… that sounded weird.’

She continued: ‘Being a “Pantene girl” has been a dream of mine since I was a little kid.’

Calling her a ‘breath of fresh air for the brand,’ Kevin Crociata, Marketing Director of North American Hair Care at Procter & Gamble said she ‘perfectly fits the fun side of Pantene’.

He added: ‘Additionally, her signature long, healthy looking hair is right on target for the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Collection, a line designed to give breakage protection to help women achieve long, strong hair.’

Created in 2006, the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program encourages women to cut and donate their hair so it can be turned into real-hair wigs.

The wigs are then distributed free of charge at American Cancer Society Wig Banks to women across the US who are undergoing cancer treatment.

Miss Deschanel is equally as enthusiastic about the cause, saying: ‘Pantene is helping to provide confidence and beautiful real-hair wigs to women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment; you can’t put a price on that.’

 

Love her!
