Kim Kardashian really blew up the spotlight this evening at the MTV Video Music Awards. Wearing a simple yet sultry sheer black dress courtesy of John Galliano. As her hair laid low, it still looked amazing; however, Kim's makeup really slayed bringing the entire look together. It is no surprise that celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic touched Kardashian's face tonight, as he consistently delivers some of the best looks for the reality star. For tonight, Dedivanovic wanted Kim to look like a Greek Goddess, with a dewy complexion and a natural glow.

So, is it possible recreate Kim's makeup look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, Dedivanovic prepped the beautiful Kardashian's skin with the Laura Mercier Infusion de Rose Nourishing Cream. This product was used to give Kim's skin a soft, moisturized base. As Dedivanovic continued, he applied the Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation in Maple to even out Kardashian's complexion and give her a “lit from within” glow.

As he continued, the celebrity makeup artist dusted the Laura Mercer Translucent Loose Setting Powder all over her t-zone. Then, Dedivanovic contoured Kim’s hairline, nose and cheekbones using the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Bronze-03 to give her skin a sun-kissed, radiant glow.

To give the cheeks a Summer-like, peach flush, the celebrity makeup artist lightly dusted the Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Peach Whisper. Dedivanovic, then, applied the Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Powder in Addiction to the inner corners of Kim’s eyes and on her cupid’s bow to brighten her complexion. As he continued with Kardashian's makeup look, he dusted the Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Powder in Devotion along her cheeks to highlight her striking cheekbones.

Moving right along, Dedivanovic, then gave Kardashian's skin a warm glow using the Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Powder in both Addiction and Devotion on her chest, collarbone and legs. To finish the face, he lightly spritzed the reality beauty's complexion with Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, giving her skin a fresh gleam.

The eyes are the mirror to the soul. To make Kardashian's eyes look sultry and bronzed, the celebrity makeup artist lightly swept the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Sand Glow across the lid. He, then, applied the Copper shade from the Laura Mercier Eye Art Caviar Colour-Inspired Palette on the outer corners of the eye and across the lower lash line to make her eyes pop. As he continued with the makeup look, specially the eyes he applied the Laura Mercier Brow Dimension Fiber Infused Colour Gel in Brunette to the outer corners of her brows, using a mascara wand to create more drama and apply a thicker layer of product. He then colored the middle of the brows with gel, using light strokes to create a softer look.

To complete the look, Dedivanovic lined the lips with the Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Hazelnut Tea before applying the Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour in Sensual.

Britney Spears continues to prove why she is a pop princess. The beautiful singer really slayed tonight in both performance and in appearance, as her hair and makeup totally blew up the spotlight tonight at the MTV Video Music Awards. Spears teamed up with celebrity makeup artist Melanie Inglessis for clean makeup look to complement her style.

"I wanted Britney's make up  to look very youthful and fresh with a little definition around the eyes and a nude lip," Inglessis shared.

So, is it possible to recreate this makeup look at home? Yes.

First and foremost, the celebrity makeup artist prepped the pop star's face by cleaning it with the So Fresh and So Clean Cucumber cleansing wipes. These wipes work to cleanse, refresh and prepare your makeup.

As Inglessis continued, she used the Westmore Beauty Lasting Effect Foundation in Tan. "This foundation truly feels like skin and is undetectable to the eyes! Flawless!" the celebrity makeup artist shared.

For the eyes, the celebrity makeup artist used the Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencil in matte Dark Brown by the lash line and extended as a wing line and under the lower lash line. CHANEL Illusion D'Ombre in New Moon blended into the liner for a softer look both top and bottom. Tom Ford Cream Color For Eyes in Spice in the crease of the eyes and putter corner to create depth.

So, what about the brows? Inglessis used the Westmore Beauty One Step Brow Gel in Light before applying the Westmore Beauty Eye Effects Red Carpet Lashes Mascara in Black. She applied two coats on the top lashes and one coat on bottom lashes, for amazing red carpet lashes.

The celebrity makeup artist used the Westmore Lasting Effects Body Coverage in Golden Radiance on the pop star's body to complement Spears dress. "This is such a perfect body makeup. It covers yet has a illuminating finish," Melanie Inglessis shared. This long wear cream body make up doesn't  rub on cloth once it dries, even outs skin tones and covers imperfections.


To finish the look, the celebrity makeup artist applied the Surratt Beauty Moderniste Lip Pencil in Faire La Bise mixed with Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in Punk Soufflé.

Congratulations! You have just recreated Britney Spears' makeup look at the 2016 Video Music Awards. #VMAs

As one of the best-selling artists of all time, Britney Spears has still got it going on. In fact, the pop princess slayed the red carpet at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. As her makeup looked amazing, her hair really made a statement. Spears teamed up with celebrity stylist Lorenzo Martin for a haute hair look to complement both her fashion and performance.

So, is it possible to recreate this hair look at home? Absolutely.

Celebrity stylist Lorenzo Martin shared with me "I began styling Britney's hair by using the ColorProof Evolved Color Care LiftIt Color Protect Foam Mousse on wet hair from roots to ends."
 
"As I continued, I followed by blow drying hair with the Bio Ionic Ultralight Speed Dryer until the hair was smooth," he shared.
 
As the celebrity stylist continued, he wrapped Britney's hair around with a curling iron. "I wrapped hair around with the Bio Ionic Long Barrel Curling Iron and left the ends out, adding a little shake at the end to loosen the curl." He shared, "this product is typically designed for people with long hair!"
 
To finish the entire hair look he applied the ColorProof Evolved Color Care PowderFix Texturizing Powder to Spears' locks before adding a little ColorProof Evolved Color Care HumidityRx Anti-Frizz WeatherProof Spray.

Get the nails: Rihanna at the 2016 VMAs

The beautiful Rihanna continues to prove why she unstoppable. With two performances down and two more to go, Rihanna is really blowing up the spotlight tonight at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. As her outfit, makeup and hair slays, her nails really looked amazing. In fact, the iconic pop star teamed up with celebrity manicurist Kimmie Kyees for a haute nail look.

“Rihanna will be on stage multiple times during this year’s VMA’s,” Rihanna's manicurist, Kimmie Kyees shared. “We wanted to find a color that would match any outfit and makeup changes she may have throughout the show– so we chose a beautiful mauve color with a subtle shimmer that looks gorgeous against her skin tone,” she added.
 
So, is it possible to get Rihanna's nails at-home? Absolutely.
 
According to Kyees, Rihanna’s nails were filed into a narrow, pointy stiletto shape and then polished with Red Carpet Manicure’s newest formula – the instant gel manicure. This polish requires no base or top coat, which is amazing. For Rihanna's nails, Kyees used the Red Carpet Manicure Red Carpet Ready 1-Step LED Gel Polish in Hopeless Romantic, a stunning mauve with a shimmer finish.
 
Kyees proceeded to brush on the color, cured it for about 30 seconds and then the iconic Rihanna was ready for what should be one of RiRi’s most iconic VMAs yet.

Congratulations! You have just recreated Rihanna's nails for the 2016 Video Music Awards. #VMAs
