Get Reese Witherspoon's Perfect Pout from the CCA's with Burt's Bees!



Best Actress nominee Reese Witherspoon dominated the carpet at the 2015 Critics Choice Movie Awards with a strikingly radiant look created by Celebrity Makeup Artist Molly R. Stern.

"Tonight, I wanted Reese's look to be simple, clean and modern, to offset her stunning Lanvin gown," said Stern.


To achieve this look, Molly prepped Reese's face by massaging in Natura Bissē Biesse the Cure Pure Serum for a luminous base. Next, evening out her skin tone, she sparingly applied Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation. Molly then contoured the hollows of Reese's cheeks blending upward and added a pop of color with an apricot blush. 

"For her eyes I wanted a clean and earthy look," said Stern. Molly applied Christian Dior Fusion Mono Matte Baked Eyeshadow in 761 Mirage into the crease of Reese's eyelids and gave them a neutral smoke with NARS Eyeshadow in Blondie. She roughly lined and smudged Reese's upper and lower lash line using Jillian Dempsey Khol Eyeliner in Jet Black. To complete the eyes, Molly curled her lashes and added two coats of jet black mascara.

"Last but not least, to perfect the look, we finished with the moisture-rich Burt's Bees Lip Crayon in Sedona Sands for a natural pale pink lip," said Stern.

Brows on Fleek at the Wink Brow Bar in NYC’s West Village!

Umbreen Sheikh and her BEAUTIFUL Wink BrowBar, located in NYC’s West Village shares her definition of "Brows on Fleek".  

POWER brows matter MUCH more than lipstick these days AND it's perfect prep for the holiday party season and countdown ‘til 2015!

Brows on Fleek means the perfect brow for, YOU!  Not every shape looks good on every face.  If you have a strong brow, own it - If not, FAKE it till you MAKE it! 

  • First start out with a cleaning around the edges.  Never pull hairs out above the brow bone, leave that to a professional.  If you don’t know how to shape them yourself, go to a local brow bar to shape them and then just follow the outline. 
  • I recommend going to a threading bar because threading is extremely accurate, they can pull one hair at a time (which really can make a difference when it comes to shaping) plus it helps to stimulate brow growth, if you over-tweezed  
  • FILL IN, FILL IN, FILL IN! With or without brows? Make them strong or STRONGER using a brow fill in, OR brow tint.  I prefer a brow powder and wax to look more natural and not as harsh.  Make sure that you dab colored powder (one shade lighter than your brow) with a brush and go over the natural shape (or ENHANCE for you thin-browed ladies) of the brow and tail of your brow, then brush out with a mascara wand or brow comb. SET with wax! This will also train your brows to go in that exact direction so you don’t have those awkward brow cowlicks. 
  • Throw on a little BB Cream, mascara and a statement lipstick and ta-da you have Brows on Fleek!
