makeup to Ezra Miller for the
2019 Met Gala.
Lets face it, Ezra Miller really knows how to get attention on the red carpet. Earlier tonight the singer, songwriter and actor made an appearance wearing a custom Burberry suit at the Metropolitan of Arts red carpet proving he is anything, but boring and banal. 

And believe it or not, Ezra Miller's incredibly eccentric makeup look took five hours. Courtesy of the talented Mimi Choi, who used the Mehron Illusion by Mimi Choi palette, this look epitomizes abnormal genius. 

In a world of camp-theme, this look went beyond what most would expect hence why it is one of the most talked about looks for the 2019 Met Gala. Choi, of course an SFX genius and one of the most underrated makeup artists of our generation. 

Can you spot his real eyes?

The Met Gala is not just one of the most highly anticipated events in the world, it allows every celebrity to be creative with fashion. And speaking of creativity, Priyanka Chopra did just that earlier this evening. Wearing a custom Dior dress which took over 60 days to make, proves why this Bollywood beauty epitomizes the Camp theme. Although her hair was unique, as her dress was totally fleek, it was her makeup which stole the show. Courtesy of the talented Pati Dubroff, Chopra was treated to a glam look which complemented her Dior dress.

"This look is camp to the max. I was inspired by Louis XIV and his royal court, Dior runway extreme, but with the edgy spirit of Bowie. She is the perfect muse to Louis XIV and embodies a fantasy level of his vanity," Pati Dubroff shared regarding the inspiration behind this look. 

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

First and foremost, celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff created the ultimate powder finish utilizing the Marc Jacobs Beauty Accomplice Instant Blurring Beauty Powder in the shade Muse. As she continued, she applied the Marc Jacobs Accomplice Concealer & Touch Up Stick in the shade Medium before applying the Marc Jacobs Accomplice Concealer & Touch Up Stick in the shade Fair to her actual eyebrows. She also used this product highlight and brighten her eyes. 

Dubroff wanted to create the ultimate dramatic eye. She applied the Marc Jacobs Beauty Fineliner Ultra Skinny Gel Crayon Eyeliner in Fine (Wine) shortly before using the Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette in Scandaldust. Dubroff wanted to create a bright pink towards the center of the eye, she she used the Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in (Pop)ular and the Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette in Provocouture on the top. She finished this part of the eye by adding some glitter. 


To brigten the eye, the world-renowned makeup artist used the Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in (N)ice. Next, she applied the Marc Jacobs Beauty Fineliner Ultra-Skinny Gel Crayon Eyeliner in Big Eyes. 


As the celebrity makeup artist continued with Priyanka's eyes, she applied the Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Primer Epic Lash Primer to the bottom lashes to lighten them up. Taking white pencil, she applied this directly to the top of Chopra's eyes using a fan. To finish the eyes, Pati applied several coats of the Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara to the Bollywood beauty's eyes. 

To complete Chopra's Met Gala look, the celebrity MUA used the Marc Jacobs Beauty Poutliner Longwear Lip Pencil in Currant Mood to shape and enhance her lips. Finally, she applied the Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in Boy Gorgeous in a heart shape to highlight the cupid's bow. 


Congratulations! You have just recreated Priyanka Chopra's makeup look for the 2019 Met Gala.

Salma Hayek always looks so exotic and radiant on every carpet. And tonight was no exception for the beautiful starlet as she looked incredible in her black and gold Gucci gown. Although her dress was great, her hair really stood out; however, it was her makeup that stole the spotlight. Her fierce and fabulous face was created by the talented makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen

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

First and foremost, the world-renowned makeup artist prepped Salma Hayek's skin using Weleda Skincare products, to prepare the stunning starlet for tonight's big event. 

Then, VanLeeuwen primed Hayek's face with the Stila Lingerie Souffle Skin Perfecting Primer in Sun-Kissed. As he continued, he applied the Stila Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer in the shade Almond just around the Salma's face. Next, he applied the Stila Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer in the shade Buff 7 in the center of her face including under her eyes. "I wanted to brighten her complexion," VanLeeuwen shared. 

Now taking the Stila After Hours Eye Shadow Palette, the celebrity makeup artist used the shades Anything Goes and Cash Out, where he mixed both shades together. VanLeeuwen continued the eyes using the Stila Glitter & Glow in the shade Rose Gold Retro. Next, he used the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Eye Liner in Intense Black. Then, he applied the Lashify Gossamers in F14 and F16. To complete the eyes, celebrity MUA Matthew VanLeeuwen applied several coats of the Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara


As the internationally known makeup artist continued, he applied the Stila Convertible Color in the shade Camellia. He applied this product like he would as a bronzer to the lovely Latina's cheeks and temples shortly before applying the Stila Heaven's Hue Highlighter in the shade Incandescence. 

Celebrity makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen applied the Stila Stay All Day Lipstick in Besos followed by the Stila Stay All Day Lip Liner in Pinot Noir.  He used these two products to create a beautiful red lip.

Get the hair look: Zendaya at 2019 Met Gala

Zendaya looked like a true princess on the red carpet, as she embraced the 2019 Met Gala theme: Camp. Wearing a custom Tommy Hilfiger blue dress that looked like something out of a real Cinderella fairytale, Zendaya truly made magic tonight. 

As much as I love her dress and her makeup, what I really loved was her hair. Styled by the talented Ursula Stephen, the beautiful actress's tresses were treated amazingly. Inspired by classic Disney character, Stephen gave Zendaya a look to complement her style.

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

First and foremost, Stephen shampooed and conditioned the HairSoFab hair piece with the Suave Professionals Sulfate-Free Cleansing Shampoo and the Suave Professionals Moisturizing Curl Conditioner

After the hair was properly cleansed, the hair expert applied the Love Beauty and Planet Coconut Milk & White Jasmine Multi-Benefit Hair Milk shortly before drying it. Once the hair was dry, hairstylist began to curl large sections the starlet's hair. Then, taking the Dove Care Between Washes Foam Dry Shampoo to create volume, Stephen used a Tangle Teezer brush to brush Zendaya's hair out.

As Stephen continued, she created a very unique french twist. Next, she teased the root of the stunning star's hair shortly before brushing out the twist. Then, taking bobby pins, she locked Zendaya's hair into place. Once the twist was where the hair expert wanted it, she pulled out Zendaya's bangs a little bit. Stephen is a perfectionist when it comes to hair so she played with this until it fit the starlet's hair perfectly. 

To finish the look, Stephen sprayed the TRESemme TRES Two Unscented Extra Hold Hair Spray and before adding her custom head band and sending her off to the Met Gala ball. 

Congratulations! You have just recreated Zendaya's 2019 Met Gala hair look. 

Get the makeup look: Rita Ora at 2019 Met Gala

Rita Ora always looks amazing at virtually every event she attends. Tonight is no exception. The British beauty stunned the red carpet earlier this evening wearing a relatively plunging gold glam gown by the iconic Marc Jacobs. And although Ora's dress and hair looked amazing, it was her makeup which really stood out tonight. Courtesy of celebrity makeup artist Kathy Jeung, who treated the starlet songwriter to a timeless look which complemented her gold dress. 

"My inspiration for the look came from her gold sequined dress by Marc Jacobs Couture. It inspired me to give Rita 1930's screen screen goddess look. Thin eyebrows, deep contours of the eyes with metallic shimmer on the lids, satin bronzed skin, and lips lightly lined with a nude gloss," Jeung shared with me. 

But the question we all have is-can we recreate this makeup look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, the celebrity makeup artist prepped Ora's skin. She used Retrouve skincare products. After she prepped the beautiful singer's face, she used the Nanacoco HD Powder Foundation in the shade Warm Tan. Then, taking the Nanacoco Airfare Concealer Brush 907, Jeung applied the Nanacoco HD Cover Concealer in the shade Orange shortly before applying the Nanacoco HD Cover Concealer in the shade Natural. 

As the celebrity MUA continued with the look, she used the Nanacoco Contouring & Strobing Palette in the shade Medium using the Nanacoco Flat Contour Brush, the Nanacoco Highlighter Brush and the Nanacoco Angled Powder Brush 902.

The eyebrows were the main event of this look, as they took the most time. Jeung bleached Ora's eyebrows which took two hours. Then, she applied the Nanacoco Browstylers Highlighter Duo in the shade Brown/Pearl Beige. To finish the brows, the celebrity makeup artist used the Nanacoco Browstylers Micro Pencil in the shade Dark Brown. 

World-renowned makeup artist Kathy Jeung shared that the eyes were supremely important with this look. Using the Nanacoco Smudge Brush 910, the celebrity MUA applied the Nanacoco Longwear Eye Liner in Gold. Next, she applied the Nanacoco Glitzn Face & Body Pigment in the shades orange gold and copper. 

The eyelashes were also quite a game changer, as Jeung shared. For this makeup look, the internationally known MUA used the Nanacoco 'Giana Style' 3D Volume lashes. Then, she applied several coats of the Nanacoco HD Extreme Volume and Curl Lenghtening Mascara

Next, Kathy applied the Nanacoco HD Pressed Blush in the shade Peach Coral. To finish the look, the celebrity makeup artist used the Nanacoco Outlast Lip Liner in the shade Burgundy shortly before applying the Nanacoco Shimmertallics Metallic Lip Gloss in the shade Sunkissed.

Serena Williams stunned the red carpet this evening for the 2019 Met Gala wearing a very vibrant Atelier Versace dress. Being true to her roots, the iconic tennis star wore custom Nike sneakers to match. Although I wouldn't say they matched, they definitely made her stand out compared to most. 

Her makeup really blew up the spotlight tonight. Courtesy of Renny Vasquez for Pat McGrath Labs, Williams was treated to an incredible makeup look to complement her style.

Is it possible to recreate this makeup look at home? Absolutely. Lets get started!

First and foremost, the Pat McGrath makeup artist prepped the fashion icon's face using an array of products. Then, he applied various products including the Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Highlighter + Balm Duo on the shade Golden and Bronze.

So, how did internationally known makeup artist Renny Vasquez do Serena Williams' eyes tonight? He used the Pat McGrath EYEdols Eyeshadow in the shades: dark matter, burnished honey, deep velvet, statuesque, celestial and in sextrovert. 

The talented MUA also used the Pat McGrath Permagel Ultra Glide Pencil in the shade XTreme Black and the Pat McGrath Perma Precision Liquid Eyeliner in the XTreme Black. 

To finish the entire look, Vasquez applied the new Pat McGrath Blitztrance Lipstick in the shade Full Fantasy. Lastly, he used the Pat McGrath Lust Gloss in Aphrodisiac.

Get the makeup look: Lady Gaga at 2019 Met Gala

Lady Gaga definitely knows how to make a real entrance at the Met Gala. As one of the five people to host the show this year, the award-winning superstar looked incredibly glam embracing the original "Camp: Notes of Fashion" fashion theme. Styled by the one and only Brandon Maxwell, Gaga's designer, the world-renowned pop starlet is one of few this evening who have stole the show. 

And as amazing as Lady Gaga's outfits look, her makeup is what really stole the show. Courtesy of her longtime makeup artist Sarah Tanno, Gaga was treated to a makeup look which complemented her style.

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

First and foremost, the celebrity makeup artist prepped Gaga's skin. She used the new Marc Jacobs Beauty Youthquake Hydra-Full Retexturizing Gel Creme. Because this cream has incredible hydrating properties (plus it smells fantastic) Tanno didn't use any foundation on Lady Gaga's skin and went directly for the Marc Jacobs Accomplice Concealer & Touch Up Stick. This has to be one of my favorite concealers ever and probably the best new concealer I have tried yet. To finish the face, the celebrity MUA applied the Marc Jacobs Accomplice Instant Blurring Beauty Powder using the Marc Jacobs Face II Sculpting Foundation Brush

The obscenely glam yet eccentrically fun lashes were curated by Sarah Tanno herself. Tanno did admit to applying several coats of the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara

For the lips, the Sarah Tanno used the Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon in the shade Flaming Oh. To complete the entire look, the celebrity makeup artist used the Marc Jacobs Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Stick in the shade Sweet Escape. 

Congratulations! You have just recreated Lady Gaga's makeup look for the 2019 Met Gala. 

Met Gala Skincare Prep 2019: Rita Ora

Rita Ora always glows on the red carpet. Not only does her makeup look incredible, but you can clearly tell she takes care of her skin. And tonight is no exception to the rule, as the starlet had her skin prepped by the talented, celebrity makeup artist Kathy Jueng for the 2019 Met Gala. 

But what did the celebrity makeup artist use on her skin? She used one of the greatest skin care brands, Retrouve skincare. Ora's skin was prepped for glam just before the big event using quite a few products from this brand. 

First and foremost, Jueng used the Retrouve Skin Brilliance Priming Pads. These pads are amazing and work to gently exfoliate the skin in the most effective yet non abrasive way possible. Infused with sugar cane, these priming pads promote a radiant yet more youthful complexion. 

What about the eyes? The celebrity makeup artist gently patted the Retrouve Revitalizing Eye Concentrate Skin Hydrator on Ora's eyes. This is one of the best eye products I have used and really gives your eyes a much needed brightness and pick-me-up. 

As the celebrity MUA continued, she applied the Retrouve Nutrient Face Serum onto Ora's face. She followed up with the Retrouve Intensive Replenishing Facial Moisturizer and Retrouve Dynamic Nourishing Face Cream.

With art, science and beauty-you can achieve this simple yet effective skincare prep at home.

He finished the eyes by applying several coats of the Dior Diorshow Iconic Overcurl in 090 Black.

Carolina Herrera Good Girl Légère Eau de Parfum

Carolina Herrera
Good Girl Légère
Eau de Parfum
Carolina Herrera has decided to celebrate women's empowerment with a breakthrough in perfumery. Inaugurating a new concept in the world of fragrance, the Good Girl Légère Eau de Parfum is as promising and intoxicating as the women who wear it. With a milestone that Herrera is destined to repeat, this fragrance forces female glamour through the communicating with the power of the sense of smell.

In fact, the scent is very seductive and possesses an array of notes which work together to create a sensual yet seductive scent. With a hint of sugar and spice and all things nice, the top notes are: Ylang-Ylang, Mandarin Orange, Bergamot and Lemon. The middle notes are: Jasmin, Tuberose, Bulgarian Rose and Orange Blossom. The base notes are: Tonka Bean, Sandalwood, Praline, Cinnamon, Dulce de Leche, Cedar, Cashmirwood, Patchouli, Amber and Musk.

When I smell this fragrance, I definitely detect the Dulce de Leche first shortly before I notice the Tonka Bean, Ylang-Ylang, Praline, Jasmin and Tuberose. The Good Girl Légère Eau de Parfum doesn't smell like anything that I have smelled before, but does kind of remind me of the Osmond de Noir by Kelsey Berwin for women fragrance.

What I love about this decadent perfume is the fact that it is made of a black lacquered bottle and features a ribbed gold stiletto and a relatively unique internal pressure system which allows the fragrance to be diffused from the actual release itself.

"We wanted an object, not a bottle, and what more power is there but being in a heel? The system took four years and 600 tests to perfect, for this new flacon, we have needed a hundred more," Carolina Herrera de Baez, creative director of Carolina Herrera Fragrances shared. "A girl has never enough shoes. If they tell you you have too many, stop talking to them," Carolina Herrera continued.
Happy International Women's Day! For more information about the Good Girl Légère Eau de Parfum by Carolina Herrera, simply click here right now.

annual Academy Awards.

Lucy Boynton looked absolutely stunning on the red carpet earlier this evening. Wearing a pretty purple gown courtesy of Rodarte, the Bohemian Rhapsody beauty shined at the 2019 Oscars tonight. And although her makeup looked great, her hair looked even more amazing. Courtesy of Jenny Cho, Boynton was treated to a style inspired by the late and great Grace Kelly.

"For tonight's look, I wanted Lucy’s hair to have a modern nod to the classic style of Grace Kelly," Cho shared.

So, is it possible to re-create this hair look at-home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, the celebrity stylist shampooed and conditioned the stunning starlet's hair using Suave Professionals Coconut + Vanilla Repairing Shampoo and the Suave Professionals Coconut + Vanilla Repairing Conditioner.

As she continued, she towel dried Boynton's hair. Then, she applied the Unite Boosta Voluminizing Spray followed by the Suave Professionals Sleek Anti-Frizz Smooth and Shine Cream. She used just a layer of this product. Next, she took a small round brush and a set of 1-inch Velcro rollers before blow drying the Bohemian Rhapsody star's hair using the Gamma+ Italia Aria Hair Dryer.

"The Gamma+ Italia Aria Hair Dryer is a favorite of mine. It is very light, super quiet and dries the hair at fast lightening speed," Cho added.

The celebrity stylist set each individual section of Boynton's hair with the 1-inch Velcro rollers. As soon as Jenny got to the top of Lucy's head, she created a deep, side part. Then, she followed the rollers directly parallel to the part, all of the way down toward the ears.

Taking the Living Proof Flex Hair Spray, the celebrity stylist began to mist the Boynton's hair all over, as she let her hair set for 15 minutes. Then, she took the rollers out one-by-one. As she continued, Cho sculpted Boynton's hairline with a "S" shape, flat curl to frame the actress's face. She tucked the right side behind the ear.

To finish the hair look, Jenny Cho sprayed the Suave Professionals Firm Control Finishing Hairspray on Lucy Boynton's hair.

Congratulations! You have just re-created Lucy Boynton's hair look for the 91st annual Academy Awards.

Get the makeup look: Priyanka Chopra at 91st Academy Awards

The beautiful Priyanka Chopra.
The 91st annual Academy Awards were held a few hours ago a the Dolby Theatre in the heart of Los Angeles. As the show did not have a host this year, it kicked off with an epic performance by Adam Lambert + Queen. Many actors and actresses shined the red carpet, including the beautiful Priyanka Chopra wearing a beautiful black halter gown courtesy of Elie Saab. And as glamorous as she looked, the Indian beauty's makeup really complemented the style and brought it to life. Compliments of celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff, who took inspiration from Chopra's dress, the Bollywood actress shined on the record carpet this year during both the Oscars and Vanity Fair After Party.

"Tonight Priyanka is wearing a dramatic black gown by Elie Saab with beadwork which I decided to mimic on the eyes. The makeup is all about a dramatic eye, blackened corners and lids with shine and texture. I kept the rest of the face in neutral tones, blush very natural to Priyanka’s skin tone and lips that are similar to her natural lip tone," the celebrity makeup artist shared with me.

"Typically we work with Priyanka’s natural lid shape, round, but this time we wanted an elongated eye for a more dramatic look," Dubroff continued with me about the inspiration behind the look.

So, is it possible to re-create this makeup at-home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, the celebrity makeup artist prepped Chopra's skin. Taking the True Botanicals Nutrient Mist, she applied the product directly to a beautyblender and foundation brush to moisten them. As she continued, she used the Decorte Soft Crème Foundation in the shade 304.

Next, Dubroff filled in the starlet's eyebrows using the Jill Stuart Beauty Airy Stay Brow Liner in 03. She continued with the look by applying the Jill Stuart Beauty Iconic Look Eyeshadow in C204. Then, taking the Jill Stuart Beauty Twinkle Glow Multi Stick, the celebrity makeup artist applied it generously to Chopra's lid to give her more of a "wet" look.

"This was an essential part to her eyes as this creamy, bronzy copper color, allowed the shade of the dark eye to harmonize with her skin tone. Black can sometimes make those with darker skin tones look a bit grey and this helped the lid have a nice base wash to build on," Dubroff shared.

Then, she taking a black thick eye pencil, Dubroff created a corner shape to the starlet's eyes.

Skincare Prep: Glenn Close at 91st Academy Awards

This Academy Awards have officially started and there is no denying how excited many are, for perhaps the most anticipated awards event of the year which recognizes and honors only the best in film. There is no denying that Glenn Close is one of the best actresses there is. As much as I loved her in Fatal Attraction, she did an excellent job playing Cruella de Vil. She's just one of the most accessible actresses to exist, which is why I am not surprised she's nominated for her role in the movie "The Wife" as Joan Castleman.

As the beautiful starlet shined on the red carpet in a gorgeous gold gown covered in four million hand-sewn Swarovski crystals and weighing over 40 pounds alone, courtesy of Carolina Herrera, Close's face glowed just as much courtesy of the Kai Pritchard. 

For this particular look, the celebrity makeup artist prepped the Academy Award nominee's face with the Retrouvé Dynamic Nourishing Face Cream.

"Her skin is dry and it was like a moisture surge to her skin. It also has a little grab to it that helps the makeup adhere to the skin—perfect for tonight," Pritchard shared.

Then, he applied the Retrouvé Nutrient Face Serum all over the eye and t-zone area, which works to smooth any textural issues and create a flawless finish.

"For hair and makeup, Close let her hair and makeup team have free reign today. Glenn was totally relaxed. We listened to classical music. It was a peaceful, lovely experience for everyone. She looked great and felt great when she left to walk the red carpet," Pritchard added.

Get the makeup look: Charlize Theron at 91st Academy Awards

Charlize Theron is a woman of talent, beauty and surprises. When she debuted brown hair on the red carpet at the 91st Academy Awards earlier this evening, I think everyone was completely stunned as this is one of her biggest transformations yet. Wearing a beautiful pastel blue dress courtesy of Dior, the Academy Award winning actress really shined with her new hair courtesy of the talented Adir Abergel and Tracey Cunningham. And although her hair was unique, it was her subtle glam look that caught my attention and stole the entire look.

So, is it possible to re-create this makeup look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, you will want to prep the skin. As Theron is an ambassador for Dior and Dior Beauty, it is recommended by Dior to use the Dior Capture Youth New Skin Effect Enzyme Solution Age-Delay Resurfacing Water followed by the Dior Capture Youth Intense Rescue Age-Delay Revitalizing Oil-Serum. Next, you will want to apply the Dior Capture Youth Age-Delay Advanced Eye Treatment directly to your eyes.

As you continue, Dior recommends applying the Dior Capture Totale Dreamskin Advanced followed by the Dior Forever Skin Glow. If you are the same complexion as Charlize Theron, it is recommended to use the shade "2N" which is her shade. For this particular look, contouring is essential and to create it, Dior recommends utilizing the Dior Backstage Contour Palette in the shade #001 Universal.

The eyes are natural yet kept classic to complement the dramatic bold lip. Dior recommends using the Dior Backstage Eye Palette in #001 Warm Neutrals. Definition is always key in any makeup look, especially this one. Dior also recommends apply several coats of the Dior Diorshow Maximizer 3D primer to the lashes followed by several coats of the Dior Diorshow Mascara in #090 Pro Black.

And for the moment you are waiting for, how to get Charlize Theron's classic lip from the 2019 Oscars? Dior recommends using the Dior Addict Stellar Shine in the shade #639 Rivera Star.
