Get Anne Hathaway and Scarlett Johansson’s Oscar Hair With Fekkai Products!

This year for the 83nd Annual Academy Awards, four of the most sought after hairstyles seen on the red carpet were created exclusively by Fekkai stylists using Fekkai products. For information on the hairstylist’s inspirations and the products used to achieve the look, see below:

Frederic Fekkai’s Adir Abergel tended to the tresses of Host, Anne Hathaway

INSPIRATION: A modern take on an Edwardian influenced style accented with a bohemian flair; a soft, loose style with beautiful shine.

HOW TO:

1. Begin by parting the hair down the center and apply Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Volume Styling Whip to the hair from roots ends

2. Blow-dry the hair using Fekkai Round Brush.

3. Next, pull hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck, making sure to cover the ears.

4. Then twist the ponytail into a loose knot.

5. The key is keeping it loose for a touch of bohemian flair. It’s almost like a draping around the face with wispy pieces of hair coming outsoftly.

6. Finish the look by spraying the Fekkai Coiff™ Sheer Hold Hairspray.

INSPIRATION: Duffy sought to bring out ‘the real Scarlett Johansson’ by creating a young, sexy, modern shag with dry texture.

HOW TO:

1) Begin by applying Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Volume™ Styling. Whip to towel-dried hair, working the product in from roots to ends.

2) Dry hair using Fekkai Classic Brush to create loose, tousled waves for the textured effect.

3) Apply Fekkai Full Blown Volume™ Lifting Hairspray to roots to prep the foundation

4) At the nape of the neck, spritz hair with Fekkai Coiff™ Océanique Tousled Wave Spray

5) Using a 1 ½ inch curling iron wrap 2-3 inch sections of hair around the barrel of the iron, leaving ends out. Continue to repeat this action throughout, bearing in mind the way the root falls.

6) Take a hairdryer with nozzle attachment and blast the root of the hair for hold and volume

7) Run fingers through the hair to break-up the waves.

8) Clamp the ends with a flat iron to flatten the curl, creating an imperfect, sleeker wave.

9) Finish the style with Fekkai Coiff™ Sheer Hold Hairspray to give a modern, edgy look.

Awesome Fekkai news – their products are now available at Target! Woohoo! (It’s all I use on my hair). You can also buy them online here.

Winner Announced: Featuring EnvyDerm!

Congratulations to our winner Melissa!

New Contest EnvyDerm

Step aside, full lips and tan skin. These days, it’s all about drama in the eyes. A few years ago, we might have wanted plump, bee-stung lips like Angelina Jolie, suffering through stinging lip glosses and collagen injections for it. But these days the focus has shifted to another “It” facial feature – eyelashes. Stars like Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and Penelope Cruz are batting their way down the red carpet with these feathery eye fringes.

Fortunately, EnvyDerm, a groundbreaking new nonprescription formula eyelash growth serum is here for our eyebatting rescue.

“Through meticulous research and development, scientific advances, professional expertise and the understanding of a customer’s well-being, EnvyDerm is changing the world of beauty,” says Nadia Smith, President and Founder of EnvyDerm. “At EnvyDerm, we provide consumers with the best eyelash care products to enhance their natural beauty.”

Retail Cost: $99.95

How to Use EnvyDerm?
The EnvyDerm applicator is very similar to a liquid eyeliner applicator. One should apply the stimulating serum once a day before bedtime along the upper and lower lash lines. EnvyDerm does not disrupt the daily application of make-up or other skincare routines. Can be used on brows as well.

What is in EnvyDerm?
EnvyDerm is formulated with active natural ingredients such as bioavailable lipo-oligopeptides that stimulate keratin genes. Powerful SymPeptide technology lengthens and strengthens natural lashes. EnvyDerm uses vitamins, minerals and amino ccids to moisturize and nourish lashes and brows.

When Can I Expect to See Results?
One should begin to see the lash line becoming thicker, fuller and healthier looking in as little as 2 weeks! In a clinical study, users saw a 25 percent increase in eyelash length during this period. EnvyDerm will continue to prove results over time if used on a consistent basis.

About EnvyDerm
EnvyDerm Eyelash Growth Serum is a gentle, non-prescription formula that promotes natural eyelash growth to give you longer, fuller and darker lashes. Our product contains only safe ingredients tested by ophthalmologists with no animal testing.

Get the Look: Marisa Tomei 2011 Oscars

CELEBRITY MAKE-UP ARTIST MATTHEW VANLEEUWEN
CREATED PRESENTER MARISA TOMEI’S RED CARPET LOOK
FOR THE 83rd ANNUAL OSCAR AWARDS
USING EXCLUSIVELY ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS PRODUCT

For Marisa Tomei’s gorgeous red carpet look, makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen worked exclusively with Anastasia Beverly Hills product.

Matthew took the Anastasia Highlighting Crème Duo in St Tropezdipped into the crème blush and applied it in gentle back and forth sweeps across Marisa’s smiling cheeks. (Pro tip: smiling makes the job mistake proof, because it helps the blush go where it’s supposed to). Using the same brush, Matthew dipped into the highlighting crème and brushed the tops of the lips and nose with the illuminating fluid. The skin was “so translucent and smooth looking!”

Turning to brows, Matthew filled and shaped Marisa’s with Anastasia Brow Wiz Pencil in Brunette  and created a few feathery strokes in the brow and to define the bottom edge of the brow. Matthew then took Anastasia Brow Duality Penc and placed a bit of the matte highlighter just at the arch of the brow. The total effect is ultra defined and crisp brows that perfectly frame the face.

Moving to the eyes, Matthew took Anastasia Illumin8 Eye Shadow Palette 1  and dusted the soft pink sorbet shadow all over the eye to brighten and tone the skin. Matthew raved that “the shadow is so smoothing and imparts a modern velvety texture.” Then Matthew took Illumin8 palette 3  and blended the mauve shade into the crease “to create the perfect shade of orchid.” Next, Matthew lined the eye with a thin line of black pencil and smudged the sparkly blue/black shadow from Illumin8 palette #3 into the lashline to create a softer, smokey eyeline.

The eye makeup was finished by curling the lashes and applying two coats of Anastasia Lash Lifting Mascara, which Matthew says “has reached cult status with many of my clients…it’s incredible.”

Finally to finish Marisa’s stunning look, Matthew applied Anastasia Hydrafull Lip Gloss in Sangria , a gorgeous soft amethyst berry shade.
