beauty and flawless skin are widely admired,
would she be without her gorgeous hair? Whether it's long,
short, straight or curly, her
striking red hair always
seems to settle around her cheekbones (or shoulders)
perfectly. For her appearance at the Golden Globes Awards,
the actress went for a sleek look and straightened her
wavy mane with a flat iron. If you'd like to achieve this
silky, modern look, follow the directions of Joey Battisti, artistic director of Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa.
STEP 1 Shampoo hair
and use a moisturizing conditioner.
STEP 2 Towel-dry
the hair. Spray on an anti-frizz treatment. Blow dry hair
using a large round brush. (The larger the brush, the
easier it is to straighten hair.) Use a boar bristle brush
for extra shine.
STEP 3 Use a hot
iron on the back sections of hair first. Working from
underneath, guide and hold the iron straight down the hair
while applying medium high heat. Repeat this process for
the entire head.
STEP 4 Apray a
high-shine silicone product on your hands and pat in on
your hair, moving hands in a downward motion.
STEP 5 Take an
inch-wide section of hair from the middle of the forehead
and brush the section back, clipping it with a barrette.

"Transformers", and she shines on the red carpet. Although
she prefers light eye makeup but with heavy eyeliner! Get

Hair Style your hair by parting it down the
middle and blow-drying it straight with a round brush to
give it volume. Curl the ends of your hair into loose
waves. Throw your head back and forth a few times to give
yourself a messy, "bed head" look.
STEP 1 Apply a light
foundation and bronzer to your face. Line your entire eye
with black eyeliner and apply mascara. Use light-colored,
shimmery eye shadow to bring our your blue eyes. If you
don't have blue or green eyes, you can get colored
contacts, it's not necessary you can get her look
with your natural eye color.
STEP 2 (Eyeliner)
Megan fox wears heavy eyeliner to make her eyes stands
out. Make sure you place eye line by the eyelashes and
under. Getting the whole eye, making sure the line is
thick and bold.
STEP 3 (Eye shadow)
Megan fox wears very neutral shimmery eye shadow. Find a
light blue, or ones that go good on your skin. Never wear
eye shadow that is too bright or to dark for your eyes it
takes away from your beauty.
STEP 4 (Mascara)

mascara on can make it seem clumpy. So try out clump free

Ryan is an utterly compelling combination of tomboy
meets ingenue. She has the ability to look as sexy in
jeans and a T-shirt as she does in a slinky dress and
heels. Whichever side of her personality she indulges, she
always looks fresh-faced and glowing. If you'd like to get
Meg's radiant look, follow these simple steps from Annesley Broadhead, national trainer for CARGO cosmetics.
STEP 1 Prepare your
face for makeup by applying light moisturizer, eye cream
and lip conditioner. Using your fingers, dab a small
amount of concealer to the inner corners of the eyes,
underneath and very lightly on the lids. Blend using your
STEP 2 Meg’s look
is very sheer and dewy, so use a minimum of foundation to
even and balance the skin. Begin by dotting small amounts
of liquid foundation on the forehead, chin, cheeks and
nose. Blend well using your fingers. Follow this with a
light dusting of loose powder on the t-zone and cheeks.
STEP 3 Use a blush
brush to dot soft pink powder blush on the apples of the
cheek. Blend in a circular, upward motion following the
cheekbone. Blending in this way prevents streaking and
gives a more natural appearance.
STEP 4 Using a brow
brush and tiny brush strokes, softly define the brows by
applying a light taupe shadow, focusing the color on areas
where brows are scant. With a flat blending brush, cover
each eyelid from the lash line to just under the eyebrow
with cream-colored eye shadow. This acts as a base for
additional color and also helps brighten the eyes.
STEP 5 Use a
smaller crease brush to apply a shimmering brown-rose
shadow to the lid, blending softly up and into the crease.
Lightly apply a dark chocolate brown shadow to the outer
corners only, blending up and out. Working with the same
color, wet an eye- liner brush and line both the top and
bottom lashes with this shadow. Curl your eyelashes and
apply two coats of black or brown mascara, depending on
your hair color. Before applying mascara, Annesley
suggests using a tissue to remove any excess from the
wand. This prevents clumping and leaves you with perfectly
separated and stained lashes.
STEP 6 Line the
lips with neutral lip liner. For the most natural lip
line, be sure to use light feathery strokes to draw the
lip, rather than one hard, continuous line. Apply a
taupe-rose lipstick using a lip brush. The brush will help
you get a more precise look and prevent you from applying
too much color. Concentrating on the center of the upper
and lower lips, use your brush to apply a light coat of
soft pink gloss.
STEP 7 For Meg’s
glamorous glow, finish this look by applying a small
amount of a cream shimmer highlighter to the area directly
under the eyebrow and along the top of the cheekbone.
is never the same woman twice. One minute she's a
modern-day chanting and wearing Mehendi, the next
she's an urban cowgirl covered in rhinestones and fringe.
Whatever her next look, you can be assured everyone will
want it. Celebrity stylist Steven Ianiello helps capture
Madonna's latest glowing and glamorous style, which is
perfect for anyone with at least shoulder-length hair.
STEP 1 After
washing your hair with a moisturizing shampoo, lightly
towel dry to remove excess moisture. Apply a quarter-size
amount of leave-in volumizing conditioner and work through
to the ends.
STEP 2 To dry the
hair, begin at the back of the head with a 1- to 2-inch
section of hair closest to the nape of the neck. Using a
3-inch brush, pick up the hair at the scalp and apply heat
while pulling it straight down. When you get to the ends,
just let the hair fall off the brush. The goal here is a
very straight look. Continue this process working in
sections up the back of the head until you reach the
crown. Repeat for the sides. Always work from the bottom
STEP 3 When you get
to the front section of the hair, use the same drying
process as step two, but this time instead of pulling the
hair straight down with the brush, raise it to the
ceiling, to create lift.
STEP 4 To begin
curling, you will need a curling iron with a 3½-inch
barrel. Divide the back of the head into two sections with
a part running down the middle. Secure the two sides with
clips, but leave about an inch of hair hanging down on
STEP 5 Take one of
these sections and spray with light hairspray. Apply the
curling iron to the middle of the hair shaft and drag it
to the very end, then roll the hair vertically in a
clockwise direction about halfway up the length of the
hair. Repeat this process on the other side, except this
time roll the hair in a counterclockwise direction. You
will want to repeat this alternating
clockwise-counterclockwise curling process in the back of
the head making sure only the lower half of the hair goes
under the iron. Repeat this process on the sides of the
STEP 6 When you
curl the front pieces, don't bring the iron quite so high
on the hair shaft and make sure to curl each side in
STEP 7 After the
entire head has been curled, lightly comb through the
curls with a wide-tooth comb, then work through the curls
with your fingers. To give the style holding power, give
it another spritz of light hairspray.
Cruz's makeup is understated and she uses
makeup to enhance her natural beauty. Her makeup never
looks too heavy during the day or night but the eyes are
always the focus of Penelope's Cruz's look, she like to
highlight her eyes with dark colors. If you want to wear
makeup like Penelope Cruz, here's how to get her look.
STEP 1 Apply a
foundation primer. Cruz's makeup artist that created her
look for the Oscars used Chanel products.
STEP 2 Put on a light
coating of foundation. Cruz uses Teint Innocence
Foundation by Chanel in Soft Honey.
STEP 3 Use dark
eyeliner and eye shadow. Line the entire top and bottom
lids first, then apply the brown eye shadow over the
eyeliner. This will give you the classic, smoky-eye look
that Penelope Cruz often use.
STEP 4 Complete
Penelope Cruz's smoky-eye look. Use Loreal's Telescopic
Mascara in Blackest-Black. Cruz is a spokesperson for this
STEP 5 Dust bronzer on
your cheeks. Because the eyes are always the focus of
Penelope's Cruz's look, you need only a light dusting of a
bronzer or peach blush on the apples of your cheeks.
STEP 6 Add a tinted
lip gloss rather than a lipstick. Choose a color that is
most similar to your natural lip color.
STEP 7 Finish the
Penelope Cruz look with a light dusting of shimmery powder
all over the face
Roberts wearing sometimes ubiquitous no-makeup
“makeup” look on the red carpet. Makeup artists re-create
this look for many celebs and models. To get this look
just follow the steps below.
STEP 1 Start with a
clean, makeup-free, moisturized base. Make sure that you
wash any old makeup off of your face from the night before
and that you moisturize. Wash your face with a brightening
face wash and follow up with a brightening serum .
STEP 2 Use primer! It helps to keep your
complexion looking fresh and provides a base for your concealer
and foundation to stick to so you won’t have to keep
re-applying your makeup throughout the day.
STEP 3 Concealer is
your best friend when it comes to creating a flawless
face. Use concealer underneath your eyes to mask puffiness
and fine lines and on any discolored area.
STEP 4 After
concealing, apply your foundation. Using a makeup sponge, dab on forehead,
cheeks, nose, chin and blend away.
STEP 5 Use a bronzer
and blush mixture on cheeks, chin and forehead. with a powder brush and apply a light layer of bronzer on
your cheeks, chin and forehead. Another trick is to apply a
bit of the bronzer onto your eyelids before putting on
your mascara and eyeliner.
STEP 6 Highlighter
isn’t just for your cheekbones! Always add a
light layer of shimmery highlighter onto the apples of
cheekbones and down the center of your nose, but also take a tiny brush and dab a bit into the corners of
STEP 7 Don’t forget to
groom those eyebrows. Because if you have
Wolverine-looking eyebrows people will stare directly at
that and not notice your fresh, pretty no-makeup look
which will pretty much defeat the whole purpose of you
creating this look in the first place!
And there you have it! It seems like it would be a
complicated thing to do and why bother when you can just
wear no-makeup, but once you get the hang of it, it’s
fairly easy to do. It’s also the perfect look to impress
people with “natural beauty.”
Alba's flawless dark skin, big brown eyes and
full lips make her one of the most beautiful actresses in
Hollywood. Preferring to highlight her already lovely
features with cosmetics rather than cover them up, Alba is
the picture of natural beauty. You can achieve Jessica's
fresh look in just a few minutes.
STEP 1 Cover blemishes with Jessica's favorite
concealer, Touche Eclat, by Yves Saint Laurent, and dab on
a light layer of liquid foundation to even your skin tone.
Next, apply a tinted moisturizer to achieve Alba's
STEP 2 Apply loose,
translucent powder to your entire face, focusing
especially on your T-zone, to diminish appearance of oil
and shine. Use a puff for the initial application and a
large brush to clear away excess powder. Caked on makeup
is one of Jessica's pet peeves, so use powder sparingly.
Highlight your cheeks with MAC Cream Color Base in Shell,
Jessica's favorite shade. To brighten your face, lightly
brush Stila Moonlight eye shadow in white to your temples.
Jessica adds this brightening touch just before stepping
out the door.
STEP 5 Add drama to
your eyes with liner and shadow. Jessica emphasizes her
wide brown eyes with Stila eyeshadow in Shore, a silver
tone and Sun, a glistening, peachy hue. After applying
shadow to your lids and creases, fill your upper and lower
lash lines with dark brown liner.
STEP 6 Finish the eyes
with several light applications of black mascara. Jessica
Alba prefers Blinc mascara because it lengthens her lashes
and gives them a wet look without clumping. For added
drama, curl your lashes before using mascara.
STEP 6 Complete the
look with lip color. For everyday use, Jessica prefers
Kiehl's all natural, non-sticky lip gloss. Her red carpet
lipstick of choice is Naked Grape by Betsey Johnson. If
you lack Alba's full lips, use a clear lip plumper before
began acting as a child, but it wasn't until
her appearance in the blockbuster Titanic that her
down-to-earth beauty became famous. With her large eyes
and full lips, Kate is a makeup artists dream -- you can't
go wrong with this kind of symmetry. Here, Kate
accentuates her lovely eyes and allows her radiant skin to
shine. To get Kate's look, follow the expert advice of New
York City makeup artist Deborah Grayson.
STEP 1 Begin with the
eyes. Kate appears to have used liquid liner. Apply black
liner on the upper lid; carefully wet a pointed brush then
turn it in your pot of liner. The wetter your brush, the
more translucent your line will be. Kate chose an opaque,
black line. Follow your upper lash line to the end, then
stop the line at the end. If you go too far, dip a Q-tip
in eye makeup remover and gently dab off the end.
STEP 2 Apply a pearly, blue, translucent shadow to the lid
with a wide, fluffy brush. Reapply the shadow on the outer
segment of the lid up to the brow. (Press the brush into
the outer corner of the lid.) You may even apply a third
coat. This will give more dimension and color to the outer
color of the eye. Using a black eye shadow powder, go over
the line above your lashes to set it. Curl lashes and
apply several coats of mascara to the upper lashes and one
coat to the lower lashes.
STEP 3 If you like
darker, fuller-looking brows like Kate does here, clean
off a brown mascara brush on a tissue, then with the
residue brush up your brows with the wand. This will push
brow hair up and add a touch of color.
STEP 4 Use a
concealer just underneath and on the inner corners of your
eyes. You may want to mix it with moisturizer to keep it
very light. Apply a very lightweight foundation all over
the face. Dot a rouge gel stick on cheekbones and blend in
light, smooth strokes, using your fingers or a sponge. (If
it's to bright, apply a drop of liquid foundation to
diffuse the color.)
STEP 4 Apply a
brick-coral lip pencil inside the lines of the lips. Top
with a burgundy or ruby-toned lip gloss.
Jolie has the kind of beauty that knows no
Everything about her, from her jet-black hair and famously
full lips to her tomboyish and tattooed style seems to
celebrate extremes. If you love her brazen beauty as much
as we do then follow these simple steps from celebrity
makeup artist and creative consultant for Club Monaco
Cosmetics Denise Markey to make this look your own.
STEP 1 A big part of
this look is the clean, classic shape of Angelina’s
eyebrows. So before you apply any makeup, use your
tweezers to shape and clean up your eyebrows.
STEP 2 Use a
concealer brush to apply a cream concealer under the eye
and on the eyelid. Using your fingertips, blend well using
a tapping motion. Apply foundation only where needed to
even out redness or conceal any imperfections. To apply
the foundation use your fingers and the same tapping
motion you used to apply the concealer. If your skin is in
good shape, you can skip the foundation.
STEP 3 Dab a makeup
sponge into loose powder and use it to lightly pat the
t-zone and the area around the eyes to control shine and
set the concealer. A sponge actually gives a finer
application than a powder puff. This will help prevent the
powder from settling into fine lines and creating a
“crepey” look. This is a good technique for mature skin.
STEP 4 Sweep a pale
yellow shimmer shadow all over the eyelid and up into the
crease using a shadow brush. Using a dark brown eyeliner
pencil draw a line along the top lash line. On the bottom
lashes start at the outer corner and only draw the line
1/3 of the way in. Use a Q-tip to lightly smudge the liner
for a soft, smoky look.
STEP 5 Working with
a deep gray shadow, use a brush to apply the color to the
outer corners of the eyes, taking it half way into the
crease. Using a fluffy shadow brush, blend the color well
by running the brush back and forth in a dusting motion.
With a liner brush layer the shadow over the eyeliner
pencil. This will help the liner wear longer and add to
the smokiness of this look. Under the eyebrow apply a
white shimmer eye shadow and blend well. Curl the lashes
using an eyelash curler and apply lots of black mascara to
the top and bottom lashes.
STEP 6 If your
brows are fine on their own, just brush them and that’s
it. If they need a little extra definition, use a brow
powder to softly fill in any areas where they may be
scant. The goal is to keep the brow soft and natural, you
don’t want them to look too “done”.
STEP 7 For a
natural blush, use a sheer, dewy cheek color in a warm
rose. Use your fingers to apply this color to the apples
of your cheeks and blend by lightly tapping the cheek,
tapering the blush toward the temple.
STEP 8 Since the
emphasis of this look is on the eyes, you want to keep
your lips very subtle and fresh. Apply a nude, natural
pink lipstick using a lip brush. Blot the lip color with a
tissue to remove excess. There is no need to use a lip
liner; you want your lips to look soft and undefined. For
a change you can apply red lipstick and use lighter colors
for the eyes that look will be very nice for any evening!
Theron is known throughout the world for her
successful acting career and her simple elegance. Charlize
often walks the red carpet in sleek gowns that flatter her
figure and look sophisticated. Many women look to Charlize
fashion and beauty inspiration. The key to her entire look
is moderation and using products that flatter one's skin
tone. With the right tools and a little guidance, you can
pull off Charlize’s natural-looking makeup style.

skin to remove any dirt or impurities. Then towel-dry it
gently. Apply your favorite moisturizer and allow it to be
absorbed into your skin for approximately 10 minutes.

sponge or your fingers. If you have concern areas,
spot-apply concealer to give them some extra coverage.

STEP 3 Give yourself a
glow like the one Charlize's skin always has. Find a
bronzer that suits your skin and apply it to the areas of
your face that naturally catch sunlight, such as your
forehead, nose and cheeks. Then apply a natural-looking
pink blush to your cheeks.
STEP 4 Apply eye
makeup. Charlize usually sticks with nude or
natural-colored eye shadows. These include colors like
brown, gold or beige. Many of Charlize’s eye makeup looks
have a touch of shimmer. Find a flesh-colored eye shadow
that has a tinge of shimmer and use it as a wash on your
eyelids. Line your eyes with eyeliner. Make the line fine;
don't overdo it. Once your eyeliner is complete, curl your
eyelashes. Follow up with a coat of mascara.
STEP 5 Frame your
smile. Choose a light pink lip gloss with a slight touch
of shimmer. Line your lips with a flesh-toned lip liner
and use a lip brush to blend the liner into your lips.
Follow up with a coat of lip gloss.

Jennifer Lopez's taste in clothes may vary between
hip-hop and high fashion, but her choice in makeup remains
constant. Always opting for the ultra-feminine, she
chooses light shimmers and soft, smoky shadows, which
highlight her features without being overpowering. If
you'd like to get Jennifer's radiant look, follow these
simple steps from celebrity makeup artist Sonia Kashuk.
This look is dewy and fresh, so make sure you use a light
moisturizer and lip conditioner to prime your face before
you apply your makeup.
Dot a small amount of cream foundation onto the skin, and
blend with fingers. Keep the application very sheer. If
your skin is in good shape, use just a bit of foundation
to cover any small imperfections and skip the overall
application. If needed, follow with a little
concealer under the eyes, and blend well. Don't use powder to set
Before you begin the eyes, apply a light layer of
foundation over the entire lid, which will act as a base
coat for the shadow. Brush a little excess powder, under
the eye only, to catch any fallout from the powder
shadows. This should be brushed away after the eye makeup
Apply a layer of a light-shimmer cream eye shadow from the
brow bone down to the lash line, blending well with your
fingers. Cover this with a light application of facial
powder. The powder will help set the cream shadow and
enable you to apply powder shadow on top of the cream.
Using a small to medium eye contour brush, apply a neutral
beige shadow to the crease for added depth and contour.
Curl lashes with an
eyelash curler ,
then apply numerous coats of black mascara to upper lashes
only. For more definition, use a liner brush and "smudge"
a little black shadow on the outermost corner of the lash
line, top and bottom.
Using an eyebrow pencil, lightly fill in the brows as
needed. In choosing a brow pencil color, go at least four
shades lighter than your hair color, so the color always
looks soft and the brow isn't too severe. Blend the color,
and groom the brows using a bristle brow brush.
For glowing cheek color, use a
cream blush in a warm, rosy shade. Use your fingertips to dot blush
onto the apples of the cheeks and blend back toward the
hairline, keeping the edges very soft. Cream blush can be
heavily pigmented so start light and build until you get
the desired color and effect.
Line the lips with a neutral taupe lip liner. On the
inside of the lip, apply light shimmering gloss.
