Rebel Wilson Night At The Museum Premiere

While scrolling through PInterest, I saw photos of Rebel Wilson at the Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb premiere looking fan-freaking-tastic. Her style team has been in overdrive lately, upgrading her from basic dresses to sleek and sexy looks for her most recent red carpet appearances. If this is what she’s wearing for Night at the Museum promos, I cannot wait to see what her choices for the Pitch Perfect 2 press junket will be. She’s having a major style moment!

What I love the most about this look, in particular, is that she’s taking risks so many plus size women are afraid to take, especially on the red carpet. She’s showing off all her curves with a sequined pencil skirt, sleeveless top, and a cleavage revealing wrap top. It’s absolute perfection! If you want to take inspiration from Rebel for the holidays, here are some similar suggestions:

Selena Gomez VMA 2013 Red Carpet

When I found out that Selena Gomez wore one of my favorite lip colors on the VMA red carpet last night, I just had to share details on how to steal her style. Makeup artist Gita Bass shared how she created Selena’s berry hued look:

1. Prep with Simple Hydrating Light Moisturizer, good for sensitive skin.

2.  Even out the skin tone with Armani Luminous Silk Foundation.  Where needed, apply concealer (Cle de Peau in Honey).

3.  To match Selena’s navy Versace stunner, they decided to go with a navy cat eye. To get the look, Gita  layered Make Up Forever Aqua Eyes in 3L to line her eyes and topped them off with Volume Effet Faux Cil Mascara by YSL.

4.  Gita finished the look with Tom Ford Lip Color in Black Orchid.

PS – check out the time that I met Selena at an IHeartRadio performance.

Emma Stone Revlon

Flipping through the July issues, this Emma Stone Revlon ad totally caught my eye. Though the copper polish that she’s wearing is different from a lot of hot colors right now, it was her makeup that struck me the most. This look has a hazy late summer/early fall feeling with corals and cool browns that I reach for. Since my curiosity got the best of me and I had to find out what she was wearing, I thought you might like to know, too. Here’s how Emma’s look was created:

Debra+Messing+2013+Tony+Awards+Alternative+mygv5jY_KRBx

The amazing Ted Gibson did Debra Messing’s hair (as he so frequently does) for last night’s 2013 Tony Awards. The Fred Leighton jewels Debra wore to complement her Matthew Christopher dress inspired Ted to create a polished chignon to balance the look. Here are the three tools you’ll need to try this look at home:

  1. A flat iron with no curves (like this model from Sedu)
  2. Bungee elastic to hold the ponytail in place (try these from Ricky’s)
  3. Tame It Shine Lotion by Ted Gibson

Here’s how Ted created this classic up do:

  • First, he used Build It Blow-Drying Agent to blow her hair out.
  • Next, he used a flatiron at 350 degrees taken 1-inch sections to make sure the hair is extremely flat.
  • Then, he pulled everything to the crown of the head using Tame It Shine Lotion and a bungee elastic to put in a tight ponytail.
  • After backcombing the entire ponytail, he twisted the hair on to itself pinned with hair pins because they are very easy to secure hair and not heavy.
  • To finish the look, he sprayed Beautiful Hold Hairspray to hold the style in place.

be3d2563c2777ad7_Pretty-Little-Liars-Group-Photo.previewIf you follow me on Twitter or happen to be within earshot of me on a Tuesday night, you might have clued in on the fact that I believe ABC Family’s hit show Pretty Little Liars has the best hair on television. The styles are full of body and texture, without looking untouchable or contrived. It’s Victoria’s Secret hair but better, if you can believe that.

Naturally, I turned to TRESemme’s Celebrity Stylist, Jeanie Syfu, to help give me the inside scoop on how to achieve the look at home. You might recognize her as the lead TRESemme stylist from Bravo’s The Fashion Show, or might have seen me swoon over her work at Narciso Rodriguez, Whitney Eve, Nicholas K and Tracy Reese during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

To create Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer‘s looks, Jeanie recommends:

With all these looks, always begin with a blow out and a volumizing product such as TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse.

Step 1: Start with towel-dried hair and work the mousse evenly throughout hair – from roots to ends.  If your hair is on the frizzy side, it will also need a smoothing serum to help seal the cuticle.  Use a wide-toothed comb to help distribute this evenly.  Make sure to work through the crown (interior) as well as the hairline and at the nape of the neck.

Step 2: Flip hair upside down and blow dry, using your fingers to rough dry the hair and work the product through

Step 3: Once hair is 85% dry, flip hair upright and begin round brushing your hair for maximum fullness (it helps to use a 2” – 3” round nylon/boar bristle brush)

Step 4: Using a clip, section hair, starting at the nape of the neck and working your way up, making sure to over direct the sections upward to create a lift at the root.  A nozzle on your blow dryer will isolate the air where it’s needed and keep your blow out smooth

Once the blow out is done, there are many different approaches to creating this look. Click through the gallery below for Jeanie’s expert tips on achieving each character’s look.

Steal Her Style: Get Aria’s Look At Home

  • To create a fuller look after curling, rough up the texture with a teasing brush.  You can create volume at the crown/roots by sectioning off hair horizontally, starting from below the crown of the head.
  • Lift sections upward and brush each section down towards the roots, which roughens up the cuticle and helps to create a foundation at the roots
  • Lightly spray hair with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray and then flip your hair over, lightly brushing the surface and fingering through for a natural finish

Steal Her Style: Get Emily’s Look At Home

  • For layered hair, try creating waves by sectioning hair and curling each section vertically with a 1” barrel curling iron, starting at the mid-length down to the ends
  • Try to reverse each section so your waves aren’t going in the same direction, which will give the hair a more natural feel
  • Leave the top section uncurled for a boho-feel, creating more volume through the length
  • Flip hair over and run your fingers through to break up the waves, then finish off with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray

Steal Her Style: Get Hanna’s Look At Home

  • For a tousled look, set hair with a double barrel curling iron, working the sections vertically.  The larger the sections, the looser the wave!
  • Grab random-sized sections throughout for a natural, undone texture and finish off the style with TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo

Steal Her Style: Get Spencer’s Look At Home

  • Using a 1 1/14” curling iron, create barrel curls starting at the top of the head, spraying each section with TRESemmé Thermal Creations Curl Activator Spray on each section to set the curls and protect hair from damage.  A good tip is to start curling the hair at the mid-way through the lengths and work your way down from the ends  This will ensure a stronger curl pattern
  • Make sure to clip each section to cool
  • Once down, brush out the curls for a soft finish and lock in the style with TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Hairspray

CoverGirl has always been a brand close to my heart, but when Drew Barrymore was selected as a new face for the brand, my affinity doubled. Drew was such a natural choice – good looks aside, her carefree spirit really embodies the freedom that we should feel when playing with makeup. While I’ve loved all the ads featuring Drew, the image for Intense ShadowBlast really caught my attention. Maybe it’s because I’m a card-carrying member of team redhead or the fresh take on blue, but I just had to know how to achieve the look, and I’m passing the info on to you.

To achieve Drew’s look, try these CoverGirl products:

COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipcolor in Delish

COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipliner in Seduce

LashBlast Fusion Mascara in Very Black

Intense ShadowBlast in Blue Bomb
