Straight from the Stylist: Rosamund Pike's 2015 Oscars Look

Rosamund Pike’s look was a showstopper at last weekend's 87th annual Academy Awards.

Her hair was styled exclusively with Oscar Blandi products by Kylee Rae Heath. Below is the breakdown straight from Kylee:



"It was key to have it look easy and untried.
We wanted to create tons of texture."
TO CREATE THE LOOK:


  1. Starting on damp hair I sprayed Oscar Blandi Protein Mist throughout the hair. 
  2. I then applied Oscar Blandi Hair Lift Mousse and combed the product through.  
  3. Next, I blew her hair out creating volume and movement. Before using a Sultra 3/4 inch sized barrel and a 1 inch sized marcel iron to create texture, I sprayed Oscar Blandi Dry Styling Heat Protect Spray 
  4. Once the texture was in place, I used a comb to section from behind the left ear, over the head to the top of the right ear.  
  5. I pulled the back section into a ponytail. Then, looking in a mirror together, I pulled the front section back to meet the ponytail securing with bobby pins. 
  6. I sprayed the look into place and twisted the ponytail into a bun and pinned it. Then finished the look with the Pronto Lacca Medium Hold Hairspray and applied the Polish Glossing Creme to the short hair of her undercut.

Get the Look: Jenna Dewan-Tatum at the Jupiter Ascending Premiere

All eyes were on Jenna Dewan-Tatum at the recent premiere of Jupiter Ascending as Celebrity Makeup Artist, Jake Bailey, prepared Jenna to look out of this world. With her bright orange column dress, see how Jenna's look stole the show!




"We decided on a smokey bronze eye and a glossy nude lip to compliment the dress, not compete with it," said Celebrity Makeup Artist, Jake Bailey.

By prepping Jenna's skin, Bailey began with a light application of Burt's Bees Renewal Firming Day Lotion,  then began applying Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Light #3 all over her neck and face. Bailey warmed her cheeks by mixing NARS Illuminator in Copacabana and Ben Nye Crème Blush in August, then blended the color into the apples of her cheeks.

Applying Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Highlighter & Shader Duet, Bailey blended into the hollows of Jenna's cheeks to accentuate the cheekbones then set the makeup with a light dusting of translucent powder.

Bailey then lathered a warm bronze NARS shadow in Galapagos all over Jenna's eyelid and creases then lined her upper lash line and the outer corners of her lower lash line with Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Zero. Bailey softened the eye by adding more of the NARS shadow to create a smokey shape. Bailey gave her two coats of CoverGirl Full Lash Bloom LashBlast Mascara and finished a light liquid line.

Bailey completed Jenna's look with a glossy nude lip using Burt's Bees Lip Crayon in Sedona Sands, then topped it off with a warm bronze coat of Burt's Bees Lip Gloss in Fall Foliage.
