I hope you’re into heavy metal because the spring 2013 runways were on fire with ultraluxe shades of gold, platinum, silver, and bronze. Metallic makeup does not necessarily equate to glittery or super shimmery, and, when done right, can actually add a cool punch of color to your day or night look. Here’s how this trend is taking over this season.
Makeup artist, Pieroni applied a rusty gold powder (a mix of brown, bronze, and gold) to the eyes with a sponge-tip applicator. She swiped the blend of powders on the lids up to the brow bone, piling on more bronze close to the lash line for added intensity.
Below are our picks for the leading ladies whose beauty looks stole the show along with how to re-create their statement hair and makeup.
Makeup artist Patti Dubroff channeled the statuesque Chrysler building to create a strong and polished yet feminine makeup look for Naomi Watts.
1. Dubroff prepped Naomi’s skin with Chanel Hydra Beauty Serum around the perimeter of her face with a mattifying primer in the center.
2. Next, she used Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra–Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 to even the skin and Chanel Liz Lumiere Smoothing and Rejuvenating Eye Contour Concealer around the eye area.
3. On the apples of Naomi’s cheeks, she dusted on Chanel Powder Blush in Pink Explosion for a very feminine flush adding Poudre Signee De Chanel Illuminating Powder to bring definition to her cheekbones.
4. For her eyes, Debroff applied a combination of Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproff Long Lasting Eyeliner in Gris and Noir Intense to the inner rims and lash line and then blended to soften the look. She topped the pencil with Chanel La LIgne de Chanel Professional Eye-liner duo in Noir Lame. For the final sparkle she mixed Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Fantasme and Epatant.
5. To complete the look, Dubroff curled the lashes and added two coats of Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir and coated lips with Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour in Madamoiselle. Read More

I had the chance to interview Private Practice star Kate Walsh, who happens to have her own beauty company. Who knew?! There are a gazillion celebrity fragrances out there, but Kate’s is different. She didn’t just slap her name on a juice that a big fragrance house concocted. She came up with the idea for her fragrance Billionaire Boyfriend, created her own company and launched the scent this year. I found out what’s really behind the name as well as her other beauty secrets like how she keeps her skin in check after all of those hours on set.
Better yet, I’m giving two people the chance to win a bottle of Billionaire Boyfriend ($75). Keep reading to enter the giveaway. Read More
At one of the biggest fashion events of the year, hair, makeup and nails are just as important as the dress. The verdict is in: here are some of the beauty (and style) hits of the night. Hair how-tos and product details are in the captions! posted by Cody
HOW TO GET THE LOOK: On wet hair, hair stylist Renato Campora applied Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel throughout and then formed a strong side part. He dried the hair with a round brush to create volume and shine. Next, he used a one-inch curling iron to create the body and shape of the look. Renato then brushed through the curls to build waves starting from the side-part. After, he applied a small amount of Fekkai Advanced Brilliant Glossing Cream to define the waves of the hair and add a lasting shine. To finish the look, Renato sprayed Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s makeup artist may not be on your speed dial, but you can still find out the secrets to recreate the star’s Oscar look. I’ve chosen some of my favorite beauties of the night and am sharing the how-to directions straight from their celeb hairstylists and makeup artists.
Celebrity makeup artist Leslie Lopez described her client Gwyneth Paltrow's makeup as "elegantly bronzed." Here's how she did it:
Face: NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 PA +++ gave skin a sun-kissed glow. She then patted Super Orgasm Illuminator onto the apples of the cheeks. P.S. the tinted moisturizer was also slathered on her neck, décolletage, and shoulders.
EYES: The champagne side of NARS Alhambra Duo Eyeshadow applied on the eyelid for a pop of gold, followed by a Maybelline brown liquid eyeliner along the lashline. The look was finished with NARS Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara.
LIPS: NARS Odalisque Larger Than Life Lip Gloss
** NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 PA +++ was also applied to her
Hairstylist David Babaii created Sandra Bullock's "Pony Style."
To style, he began with Miracle Oil by David Babaii which was applied to gently towel dried hair for added shine and thermal protection. Next, he divided the hair into 4 sections (top, sides and nape) to ensure proper drying, smoothing each section perfectly straight. David used the nozzle attachment to control airflow along with a medium paddle brush to create this sleek straight finish. To achieve the perfect pony, David lightly sprayed her hair with IT&LY HAIRFASHION'S Pure Definition Hairspray and started smoothing and lifting the hair into a high ponytail. This provides extra control and a frizz free shine. To secure, he used a coated band, wrapping a small section of the ponytail around the band several times and securing with a few bobby pins. Next, he added a combination of the Miracle Oil and Pure Definition Hairspray to the palms of his hands and slid down the ponytail for additional shine and sleekness. To finish, he added a small decorative pin to the side.
Celeb makeup artist Angela Levin used CHANEL products. Eye Shadow: Quadra Eyeshadow in Mystic Eyes and a bit of Soft Touch Eye Shadow in Tigerlily on lids. Eye Liner: Under the eyes, I used the darkest color, the neutral deep brown with gold flecks shade, from Quadra Eyeshadow in Mystic Eyes. Eye Brows: Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil in Blond Clair. Blush: Exclusive Creation Blush Horizon de CHANEL. Highlighter: Limited Edition Natural Finish Pressed Powder in Jasmin. Lipstick: For Michelle's bright, purpley-pink lips, I mixed Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Paradis, a pink coral with Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Destineé, a spring plum.
Wella Professionals celeb stylist Andy LeCompte was inspired by old hollywood glamour, channeling the 1950s Grace Kelly finger waves to complement Penelope's Armani Privé gown.
Here’s how Andy suggests getting the look: 1. Start with dry hair and use a small amount of Wella Professionals Natural Volume Styling Mousse at the roots. 2. Set hair in steam hot rollers by rolling hair straight back from the head. This gives hair texture and curl. Use smaller rollers in the back to create a tighter curl, then pin hair underneath into a faux bob.
3. Lightly mist with Wella Professionals Dynamic Fix 45 Second Crafting Spray, then back comb and tease at the root. Brush out the finger waves into place and set with finishing spray.
