Model Devon Aoki flattered her striking Eurasian features, and sweeping red dress with a classic beauty look. Blood red lips and a sultry cats’ eye flick were offset with the most gorgeous, trend-led side swept twisted bun. Recreate the look with a sweep of jet black liquid liner and lacquer lips in a matte red lipstick, MAC Lady Danger is a classic. To recreate Devon’s up-do take a peek at our Errol Douglas hair tutorial; twist hair, secure with large kirby grips and finish with a spritz of Moroccanoil Shine Spray.
Actress Dakota Fanning looked as though she’d been snapped in Sepia, with her enchanting honey hued eyes, lips and flushed cheeks. Givenchy Summer 2012 collection couldn’t be more perfect to recreate the vintage nude look, simply rim eyes and swipe lips with the mulit-purpose Magic Kajal in Delicate Nude and daub eyelids with Givenchy Ombre a Fleur de Peau in Pearly Nude.
Singer Mandy Moore rocked a seriously high pony tail and bubblegum pink mouth, both of which erred on the side of pretty rather than edgy thanks to a subtle pink-hued cheek and flawless glowing skin. Match Sisley Hydrating Long Lasting Lipstick in Fuchsia Rose with a light dusting of Nars Blush in Gaiety and perfect a high sleek pony by securing with an Invisipin Hook and smoothing with shine serum.
For actress Jessica Chastain, it was all about the eyes. Almost-bare skin, a touch of blush and a subtly enhanced lip underpinned flirty and full lashes and a super thin cats eye sweep. For easy at-home eye framing, try La La Lashes strip lashes in Dolce, natural in length and fluttery or work with your natural lash by sweeping multiple coats of the new, waterproof and jet black, Max Factor 24 False Lash Mascara.
Graphic and gleaming, actress Zoe Saldana‘s eye make up was a lesson in how to wear this spring summer’s emboldened eye catwalk trend. Following the shape of the eye, sweep L’Oreal Infallible Eye Liner across the lash line from inner to outer corner, blending up into the socket for a heavy, smokey cats’ eye finish. Keep the rest of the face stripped back and nude with just a touch of balm on the lips and a groomed brow.
Model Candice Swanepoel‘s hair was the highlight of the night. An angelic Heidi braid encircled her head, whilst long loose, tonged curls tumbled down her back. Not as complicated as it looks, recreate the Heidi halo simply by splitting hair at the back of the head into two sections, braid and secure each with a Blax Snag Free Hair Elastics. Guide one plait from the back of the head to the front in one direction, securing along the way with large kirby grips and finish by tucking the end of the braid behind the plait to hide it. Repeat with the other plait in the opposite direction. Et voila.
