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.”

For the summer months I am generally anywhere but home on the weekends. Whether I’m taking the kids to the beach, camping or swimming we are always on the go. One thing I have learned is a well packed travel bag is a must. Here are a few of my favorite jane iredale products that have been in my bag this summer.

I was only introduced to powder sunscreens a few years ago but they are now a must have. If you are active in the summer or spend a lot of time out in the heat you know what how painful it is when you sweat and your sunblock runs in your eyes.

Ditch the pain and the burns with jane iredale powder-me dry sunscreen. This powder is super easy to apply with the attached puff. I love how easy it is to apply I find I get much better coverage than with liquid. I love that it doesn’t run in my eyes when I am sweating or out on the water. And the tinted color is great for evening out my complexion without the need for foundation. This is the only sunscreen my kids like on their face. Easy to apply without tears or fighting. Win!

This is such a great lotion for summer. The shimmer is subtle and doesn’t overwhelm and the tint makes my skin glow. I love using this for a warm night out on the town or after a day on the beach before we head to town for dinner. And its gentle enough I can use it on my face or body.

silk'n flash & go

Once the wedding is over it’s time to jet set somewhere warm and sunny with your new partner. If you don’t want to be fussing with razor burn or bikini bumps on your honeymoon check out the Silk’n Flash and Go.

The Flash and Go is really easy, I just  shower and shave my legs and dry off. As the kit suggested I started with the lowest energy level.  Watch the unit and wait until the lights on the side blink then I push the pulse button. It felt warm on my skin but the sensation left after just a moment. Once I got going I tried to not overlap and work in a pattern across my leg. The best part is no pain! Even with my sensitive skin after my whole treatment there was zero irritation.

To get maximum results, you want to do the treatments every 2 weeks. I am on my 3 round oftreatment and I can am starting to see results on my legs the hair seems thinner and to even be growing in a bit slower. The most dramatic improvement is on my arm pits. The hair is nearly gone and even better I can avoid razor burn.

The Flash & Go can handle your most sensitive areas including your bikini line, upper lip, under arms.. you name it the Flash & Go is ready to get rid of unwanted hair.  And I can do it in my home whenever it is most convenient for me. And with repeated treatments the hair will be gone! If you do laser hair removal the savings with the Flash & Go are even more significant.
