Nars cosmetics seemed to have a monopoly on the star makeup looks. Lea Michele
, Keri Russell
, Joan Allen
and Julie Benz
are just some of the celebs who entrusted their faces to Nars makeup artists.
To achieve Keri Russell’s soft, vintage makeup, Nars makeup artist Tina Turnbow said, “We wanted to give her look a classic feel to coincide with the vintage dress she’s wearing. Her warm skin tone and the coolness of the dress was the perfect combination for reflecting the same tones through her makeup: warm eyes, and a cool peachy matte lip. It’s flirty with a bit of sass.” Here’s what Tina used on Kerri’s face:
PRO-PRIME Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base and Skin Smoothing Face PrepTzarine Duo Eyeshadow (NEW for Fall 2010)Nuits Blanches Eyeliner Stylo, Douceur Blush (NEW for Fall 2010) topped with Desire Blush for a pop of colorTashkent Pure Matte Lipstick (NEW for Fall 2010).
“Glee’s” Lea Michele was the belle of the bell, stunning from head to toe in her Oscar de La Renta gown. Nars makeup artist Melanie Inglessis used many of the same products that Keri wore to create Lea’s retro makeup look (the new Tzarine Duo Eyeshadow and Tashkent Pure Matte Lipstick are two of my fall must-haves). “My inspiration was the era of the 60’s. I thought of Raquel Welch and Bridget Bardot: the winged eye, the nude lip. The dress is so classic, so we wanted to be adventurous with her eyes– giving a dash of color – and kept the lip nude,” said Inglessis. Here’s what it takes to copy Lea’s Look:

You can’t talk about hair and celebrity without mentioning one of the biggest celeb hairstylists in the biz Mark Townsend. He was the man behind Reece Witherspoon’s
banging red carpet appearance at the Golden Globes. At last night’s Emmys, he put the spotlight on sexy, flowy hair, working his magic on leading ladies Lea Michele and January Jones.
Lea Michele hit a high note with her hairstyle, which is great for a night on the town. “She wanted it to look touchable and super modern, and full hair with lots of volume and a bit of roughness was perfect against her flawless gown” said Townsend. 1
. “The end-of-Summer timing of the Emmys is a perfect opportunity to play with color. Lea is still shooting episodes of “Glee” and we couldn’t do anything permanent, so I added in a few custom pieces of hair to add dimension and giver her removable highlights for the evening. The result was a golden/coppery effect throughout the ends of her hair.”2
. To give hair movement and lift, Mark used Dove Body & Lift Volumizing Mousse
throughout damp hair and blow dried with a round brush.3
. Spritz in a heat protective spray. Then use a 2-inch curling iron to give a subtle bend or ‘S’ curl, rather than a perfect curl. Curl from the ends all the way up, and set each section with a barrel clip for 5 to 7 minutes or until cool.4
. Scrunch hair with mist to add moisture and blow dry briefly without a diffuser to look a bit undone. Then, warm a pea-sized amount of Dove Frizz Control Therapy Taming Cream between the palms of hands and rake fingers through hair to distribute product evenly for shiny, modern texture. TIP
: To evoke Brigitte Bardot inspiration, tease hair at the crown for extra volume and lift.5
. “To finish Lea’s look, I sprayed extra hold hairspray liberally on a small, natural bristle eyebrow brush (the kind that looks like a wooden toothbrush) and ran it through her bangs to hold a middle part. The parted bangs gave a modern update to the 60’s vibe of her hair.BG TIP
: For middle-of-the-night touchups, don’t brush the hair. To retain the texture and separation in Lea’s hair, Mark gave the star a mini bottle of hairspray and a natural bristle eyebrow brush to keep in her purse.
