Glamorous Make-Up

L’Oréal Glamourous

L’Oréal make-up has been a staple on the red carpet for so many years. Being in this industry and working with so many other pros we have known that the quality of L’Oréal make-up is superb.
We all own and use so many of these products for our Hollywood celebrity clients. The key to our clients and the red carpet are as follows. It’s all about the first foundation that looks like skin, but covers imperfections, and does not make the skin crack or look aged, or dry. Tough one right?
 Well here enters L’Oréal True Match Lumi. Problem no more, 40 percent of water and vitamin C, they know how to make it happen ladies. My clients, I work with for fashion shows and the red carpet will tell you I create magic. The magic is in the foundation and this foundation is outstanding. 5-star red carpet worthy. Hollywood glowing healthy skin, that’s what I create with this must-have product. The shades are so beautiful, colors are available for all skin types. Never pulls orange after it’s been on the skin, and never settles into fine lines. 

Red carpet Beauty Tip
Glowing on the Red Carpet
Glamourous Skin

It literally melts into the skin mimicking your own skin but better. Giving you that coverage but not sacrificing the look you are trying to achieve on the red carpet, which is healthy fresh flawless skin. The consistency of this foundation is fabulous and deserves its own Golden Globe. 
My celebrity clients think I have the magic, but the magic is in this product. It’s a definite must for everyone. Affordable for all which is even better. Like icing on the cake.
The next favorite I used for my clients at the Golden Globes show is L’Oréal Pro Glo corrector and concealer, another 5-star red carpet Golden Globe worthy must-have product. Now, you are probably thinking how is that possible for something at such a low price point? Ok this one everyone can relate to. The under-eye area is a very delicate area that is the first to see the signs of aging, dark circles, puffiness, and crepey loose skin. Well, that cannot happen on awards night.

Red Carpet Glamourous

Celebrity queens in front of the cameras, pictures, press, interviews. No time for those annoying imperfection. Here enters, my hero. Saves the day, it is 14-hour to wear, and buildable. L’Oréal Pro Glo correcting and concealer. It’s so hydrating and the texture is so superb that it never looks heavy and dry under the eye. It also photographs beautiful, matching the rest of the skin. My clients do not have the dreaded raccoon eyes. It is so hard to find a product to do this without settling again into lines, especially under the eye. Well, look no further. I am bringing Hollywood looks to all of you beautiful ladies out there, by sharing my tips on things I use on the shows. Oh yes, the best part, price. Anyone can have this item as well. Major affordable, but the quality is impeccable.  Use this product with a flat concealer brush, and don’t tug. Press outward gently as you apply. Because if you have puffiness And you press outward only, you will help to move that fluid out of the area it likes to hang out in.  Key point guys. Oh yes, my queens, this product is also great to highlight cheekbones, inner corner of eyes and tip of the nose. For the real Hollywood glam glow. These are my choices and must-haves to start out your 2020 to a new younger-looking you. P.S. This is what I’m wearing in my photo featured here. God bless, your all-stars your all beautiful. The Golden Globe goes to All of us. Until my next review, be the beautiful best you are. Best always.  Gia Klime.

Vegan Dinner for the 77th Golden Globes

Vegan Dinner for the 77th Golden Globes

Vegan Dinner for the 77th Golden Globes. Setting a dynamic dinner for the elite of Hollywood is always a challenge. This year for the first time the Golden Globes has asked the Beverly Hilton chefs to create a completely plant-based menu.

Vegan Golden Globes Dinner 4chion Lifestyle
Menu Golden Globe Awards

Vegan Menu Decision

The last year we have seen an increase in plant-based food from the Impossible and Awesome Burger. “For the first time the meal served to our guests will be entirely plant-based, a way to focus awareness on the need to countenance sustainable lifestyles as our world moves towards climate and environmental insecurity.” The menu has no meat or dairy in any dish. The Golden Globes takes the challenge and brings a star-studded menu.

King Oyster Mushrooms Vegan Dinner

Vegan Menu

The celebrities attending the Golden Globes this year will find a glamourous filling dinner. The menu includes:

  • The appetizer is chilled golden beet soup. This is prepared with shaved candy-striped beets, citrus oil, pistachio, micro chervil, and amaranth
  • The entrée will be “scallops” made from king oyster mushrooms, served with wild-mushroom risotto, roasted baby purple, and green brussels sprouts, globe carrots, and pea tendrils.
  • The dessert is a “Vegan Opera Dome,” with choco brilliance, praline gunaja crumble, caramelized hazelnuts, and passion crispy. 

Vegan Menu Changes

Executive pastry chef Thomas Henzi discusses making a beautiful cake without the use of gelatin, eggs, milk, or butter. This is a completely plant-based pastry. “It is a bit different when coming to pastries. You have to always learn new things,” Henzi states.

Executive chef Matthew Morgan says, “It is exciting to be a part of it. The statement that it is making is extremely important.” The menu looks to be as fancy as years past and the celebrities should have plenty to eat and drink.

Jamie Lee Curtis’ Sexy Hair ~ Knives Out Exclusive

Ben Stiller and Jamie Lee Curtis Golden Globes 4chion lifestyle Hairstyle
Ben Stiller and Jamie Lee Curtis

Sean James gives us insight into the trademark short hair of the beautiful and sexy Jamie Lee Curtis. He is the hairstyle for Curtis for the upcoming Rian Johnson film, Knives Out, and her 2019 Golden Globes red carpet phenomenon.

Jamie Lee Curtis’ Hairstyle LA Premier

Sean James, the hairstylist to the famous Jamie Lee Curtis, provides 4Chion Lifestyle an exclusive insight into her gorgeous hair. He states, “I’m so excited to share, the look I did for, Curtis for the LA premiere of Knives Out the megacast whodunnit thriller.
In the movie Curtis’ character, Linda Drysdale Thrombey, wears a bleach blonde platinum perfect look that I created for her at Matthew Preece Salon using Neo Bond hair protector, and Wella Blondor Toning with a mix of 9 level toners by shades EQ, it was styled on set with stylus hair care and FHI Heat tools supplied to the incredible hair and makeup team Luisa Abel makeup and Kelvin Trajan hair .
For Curtis’ red carpet look for the LA premiere last night, I used the chrome 2000 Blowdryer by FHI Heat and High Altitude Root Lift by Stylus Hair Care, round brushing it, to add volume and shape complimenting her beautiful face. To give hold the look and make sure it has volume and a punky attitude all night I used the ‘stay styled ‘ hair spray by Stylus Hair Care. Curtis’ favorite hairbrush is the FHI Heat Unbrush.”

Sean James Hairstylist to the Celebrities

We first met James when he did a segment with FNL at YouTube space. He is often found in our seasonal beauty features. His passion is his talent and his talent is his passion. He creates a vision and makes that vision come to reality in hair. His ability to understand each person not just their hair but their personal style and personality makes his art as individual as those he works with.

James is from Australia and has settled in the beautiful area of Venice Beach. His talent has graced runways, Oscar-nominated films, televisions, a trusted panelist, and believes in giving back to the community.

He continues to increase his knowledge and talent with continued training with brands like L’Oreal, Redken, and Phyto University as well as product reviews. He even has talent in wig making. While he is busy with celebrities he still has time for his regular salon clientele. List of regular clients includes Jamie Lee Curtis, Chris Hardwick, Al Yankovich, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Phil Keoghan, Eugene Levy, Dylan and Cole Sprouse, Teddy Thompson,  Rufus Wainwright, Chris Stills, and many others. 

Jamie Lee Curtis’

Curtis is a very talented actress we have covered on many occasions. She says about this film, “They will have a good time. A great movie. The puzzle pieces will come together in the delightful way of ‘I got this but then you don’t have it.’

She goes on to say, “Clearly this is a movie built for Thanksgiving weekend. If you want to ever make a movie about a dysfunctional family and then be able to take your dysfunctional family to see the movie, it’s this movie. It is a perfect family comedy.”

Sean James Hair stylist to the celebrites Jamie Lee Curtis 4chion lfiestyle
Jamie Lee Curtis Linda Character Poster

Her character, Linda Drysdale Thrombey, fashion and style for this film is an old school elegance. She centers the looks for this film around a Verdura Jewelry bracelet, seen in her poster for the film. The jewelry company founded in 1939 by Duke Fulco di Verdura, the jeweler is known for its timeless, elegant and distinctly original designs.

Thrombey, Curtis’ character in the film, is the eldest surviving child (is this a clue to the film??). She finds herself, much like real life, the center of the family, the cheerleader. A fun fact she lived in the kitchen, the center of the family life, of the home they filmed in for 2 months.

Curtis’ roles include Halloween (1978), Trading Places (1983), Perfect (1985) and A Fish Called Wanda (1988), True Lies (1994), for which she won a Golden Globe Award for her performance and many more.

Knives Out Teaser_Poster_rgb
Knives Out

Knives Out, A Rian Johnson Film, Synopsis

Acclaimed writer and director Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper, Star Wars: The Last Jedi) pays tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie in KNIVES OUT, a fresh, modern-day murder mystery where everyone is a suspect.  When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan’s dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan’s untimely death. With an all-star ensemble cast including Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, LaKeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, and Jaeden Martell, KNIVES OUT is a fun, witty and stylish whodunit guaranteed to keep audiences guessing until the very end.

The movie release is Nov. 27, 2019. Check local listings for times and locations.

Emmys® Recipes

Hor d’oeuvres
KOBE BEEF MEATBALLS WITH ROASTED TOMATO SAUCE AND
CREAMY BECHAMEL

Serves 16
2# Ground Kobe Beef
1# Ground Veal (can be substituted with ground pork as needed)
3 C Toasted Ciabatta bread
1 C Whole milk
2 T Ground Fennel Seed
2 T Ground Caraway Seed
2 T Garlic Powder
1 T Onion Powder
¼ C Salt
¼ C Chopped Parsley
¼ C Chopped Basil
METHOD: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. With a knife, remove the crust of ciabatta bread and tear the
remaining bread into small pieces. Drizzle the torn beard with olive oil and toast in oven until lightly
golden brown. While the bread toasts, mix the ground beef, veal, and all the dry spices in a large bowl.
When the bread is toasted and dry, remove from oven and allow to cool. Once the bread is cool enough to handle, crumble the bread into a separate bowl and cover with the whole milk; set aside until milk has been fully absorbed by the ciabatta. When the bread is fully hydrated, combine the bread mixture with the beef mixture, and add the fresh parsley and basil. Mix well by hand until fully incorporated. Form the mixture into 2oz balls and place onto a baking tray. Bake the meatballs in a hot oven until dark golden brown and fully caramelized, about 10 minutes. Once baked, immerse the meatballs into the tomato sauce completely and allow to simmer until fully cooked. Once cooked through the meatballs are ready to
eat but can be left in the simmer sauce to be served later. Serve warm with an ample drizzle of the bechamel sauce.
TOMATO SAUCE:
¼ C Extra Virgin olive oil
8 cloves Garlic, finely sliced for minced
½ EA White onion, finely diced
½ C Dry white wine
12 Leaves basil, chiffonade
1 can San Marzano tomatoes, crushed
1 t ground black Pepper
1 T Kosher salt
½ T Chili flake
METHOD: In a heavy-bottomed cooking pot, warm olive oil over low heat. Once the oil is warm add the
sliced garlic and diced onion and allow to cook for 5 minutes, stirring often to ensure the onion and garlic
does not burn. When the onion and garlic are soft and fragrant, carefully add the white wine and reduce
to ¼. After the wine is reduced add the remaining ingredients and allow to simmer, stirring often, until the
sauce is thickened and smooth, approximately 1 hour. Keep the heat on low and allow the sauce to simmer
slowly for best results.
BECHAMEL:
1 C Dry white wine
4 EA Thyme sprigs
2 EA Bay leaves, fresh if available
4 EA Garlic cloves, crushed
1 EA Shallot, sliced
1 tsp black peppercorn
¼ C All-purpose flour
¼ C Unsalted butter
½ C Whole milk
½ C Heavy cream
METHOD: In a heavy-bottomed saucepot place wine, thyme, bay leaves, garlic, shallot, and black
peppercorns, and simmer on low. Reduce the mixture to ¼ of the original volume. Once reduced, strain
the mixture and place the wine back into the cooking pot. Allow the wine to continue to reduce until
almost evaporated. Roughly chop the butter and add to the wine. Keeping the heat on low, allow butter to
fully melt and then whisk the flour into the butter and wine mixture to start the roux. Continue to whisk and
cook the roux until the smell of raw flour is gone, approximately ten minutes. Combine the whole milk and
heavy cream and slowly whisk into the roux watching for any lumps that may form. Allow to simmer for another 10 minutes, adding more milk if bechamel becomes too thick.

Main Course
PRIME BEEF TENDERLOIN

Serves 12
1 EA Prime beef tenderloin
2 oz Unsalted butter
6 EA Thyme sprigs
4 EA Garlic cloves
Kosher salt
Ground black pepper
METHOD: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Season beef tenderloin with salt and pepper on all sides. Over medium-high heat in a cast-iron pan, sear beef tenderloin until golden and caramelized on all sides. Add
butter, thyme and crushed garlic to the pan and baste the beef with the frothy melted butter. Once basted
place in oven and cook until medium-rare, approximately 15 minutes. The internal temperature should be roughly 125 degrees if using a meat thermometer. Remove from oven and allow the beef to rest for at least
10 minutes before cutting and serving.

WHITE CHEDDAR POTATO GRATIN

4# Russet potato, peeled and finely sliced
6 EA Shallot, finely sliced
6 EA Garlic cloves, chopped
2 C Whole milk
4 C Heavy cream
2 T Kosher salt
2 T Thyme leaves, chopped
6 oz White cheddar, grated
4 oz Parmesan cheese, grated
METHOD: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a heavy-bottomed pot, sweat garlic and shallots until soft and fragrant. Add cream, milk, salt, and thyme leaves and reduce by half. While the milk and cream mixture is reducing, peel and slice the potatoes as thinly as possible and cover in cold water to prevent browning. Prepare an 8×10 inch heavy-bottomed casserole dish with cooking spray or butter. Arrange one layer of the sliced potatoes into the bottom of the casserole dish. Carefully cover the potatoes with the reduced cream. Sprinkle with the white cheddar and parmesan. Place the second layer of potatoes and again cover with cream mixture and grated cheeses. Continue this process the casserole dish is completely full. Add one final layer of the grated cheeses and cover the casserole dish with aluminum foil. Bake the gratin for 1 hour at 350 degrees, remove foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes to brown the top of the gratin.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving.

Green Goddes Chop Salad

Serves 8
1 C Baby zucchini, blanched
1 C Asparagus tips, blanched
½ C English peas, blanched
½ C Edamame, blanched
½ C Green Romanesco florets, blanched
½ C Shishito peppers, lightly grilled
8 EA Broccolini, blanched
2 heads Baby artisan lettuce, leaves picked washed
½ C Green Goddess dressing
METHOD: Prepare the vegetables as stated and cut all into bite-size pieces. Wash and dry the lettuce leaves and cut into a bowl. Combine with cut vegetables and drizzle with the green goddess dressing. Carefully toss and serve. Garnish with fresh tarragon leaves and fennel frond.
GREEN GODDESS DRESSING
2 C Watercress, picked leaves, washed
½ C Basil, leaves
2 T Chives, chopped
2 T Tarragon leaves
1 EA Lemon zest and juice
½ C Mayonnaise
2 T Crème Fraiche
1 EA Anchovy
½ T Dijon mustard
2 EA Garlic cloves
METHOD: In a blender mix lemon juice, mayonnaise, crème fraiche, anchovy, Dijon mustard, and garlic cloves. Puree until smooth adding a small amount of water if the mixture becomes too thick. Add the fresh
herbs and lemon zest to the blender cup and carefully pulse to combine and fully mix the herbs and the pureed base.

Dessert
BUTTERSCOTCH BUDINO

Yield: 10 portions
1 cup Dark brown sugar
½ cup water
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3 cup heavy cream
1.5 cup whole milk
8 ea. large egg yolks
4 tablespoon cornstarch
4 tablespoon unsalted butter
Method

  1. Combine the brown sugar, water, and salt in a heavy-bottomed saucepan, place the pan on the stove over medium heat, cook until the caramel is dark, takes about 14 minutes.
  2. Standing back with caution add the cream and milk to the caramel. This will make the mixture seize up at first, but if you keep whisking and let it heat back up, it will combine. Bring the mixture back to boil, then turn down the heat to medium.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and cornstarch.
  4. Temper the caramel mixture with eggs yolks and cornstarch by adding a cup caramel mix to the eggs mixture, whisking constantly, then pour the egg mixture back into the pan.
  5. Increase the heat to bring this mixture to a boil and keep whisking as the custard thickens from the cornstarch, should take two minutes.
    6 Remove the pan from the heat and add the butter.
  6. Strain the custard through a fine strainer to remove any big lumps that might have formed and portion the custard into ramekins.
  7. Cover the ramekins with plastic wrap and chill the custard for a least 4 hours…it’s best when you make a day ahead

Barware:

Unlikely Friends ~ “Slipaway”

Unlikely Friends ~ “Slipaway”

Husband and wife, Julia Butler, and Daniel Mentz, presents Slipaway at Prescott Film Festival. The most unlikely duo becomes the best of friends on a self-discovery journey.

Slipaway Film

The film takes two different generations and puts them together at a time when their lives are struggling. They must overcome their differences in age, personality, and more. The journey takes them to becoming best friends while supporting each other’s dreams.

The script develops from Mentz’s visit with Gwen Davis, author. He personally delivers a keyboard he sold to her on Craigslist. The visit became an all day adventure with cookies, tea, and scrapbooks. She told stories about hanging out on location with the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Cary Grant. Butler developed the screenplay after an evening of Mentz regaling the day’s adventures. She is inspired by Davis’ stories and life.

Slipaway Message

Mentz states, “We wanted to bring this message to the foreground, that relationships whether romantic or platonic do not have to be in the same age category. Relationships in different generations are not really discussed.” The movie takes on generational struggles and friendships that assist with making dreams come true.

Fall, actress Elaine Partnow

Fall, actress Elaine Partnow, brings a lot to the role. Mentz says, “She brought the character to life much more than we could ever imagine.” Partnow brings Fall to life with details that are specific to Fall’s her generation. Partnow presents the need to be private and dressing up before leaving the house. Just a few details Partnow presents throughout the film that bring her generation to light.

Adam, actor Jesse Pepe

Adam, actor Jesse Pepe, presents with his own story and struggle from the start. His past is still very present. This takes precedence over Adam and Fall’s individual dreams. Adam was not onboard with Fall’s concept of dreaming in life,

Adam: “It’s a little cheesy, don’t you think?”

Fall: “Cheesy? Well, guess that means my whole life has been… cheesy.”

Mentz and Butler’s first feature film brings an unlikely pair together that takes you on a lifetime journey of self-discovery, laughter, and dreams.

Best Picture Green Book Oscars®

Best Picture Green Book Oscars®

Best Picture

The Best Picture at the 91st Oscars® is Green Book. This story brings forward the fact that we need to sit down and discuss racism in a safe environment.

Green Book Producers

Jim Burke is a producer and actor, known for Green Book (2018), The Descendants(2011) and Election (1999). This film took many puns and knocks during production. Burke responds to this time, “I’ll just say, yes, it was discouraging; but we always went back to the film.  And when we had a bad day, we’d pop in the movie, and we were reminded that we’re all really proud of this film, all of us and all of the over 500 people who helped make it.”

Peter Farrell is a producer and writer, known for Green Book (2018), There’s Something About Mary (1998) and Dumb and Dumber (1994). Farrell talks about his approach to winning, “It’s like if I watch a football game and I need my team to score, I just leave the room, and they will.  If I’m watching them, they won’t.  So I just kind of thought about everything but winning this thing, and it worked.”

Charles B. Wessler is known for his work on There’s Something About Mary (1998), Dumb and Dumber (1994) and It’s Pat: The Movie (1994). Wessler talks about the moment Julia Roberts (he did forget her name) announced Green Book for Best Picture, “I just want to say one thing.  These guys may or may not agree with me, but when I’m forgetting the name of the actress who gave us the award.  I don’t know why.”
Burke states, “Julia Roberts.”
Wessler continues, “Julia Roberts. She opened up thank you.  She opened up the thing, and I’m not kidding, I started to talk to my friend sitting next to me; and she said GREEN BOOK, and I so just to let you know, were we thinking we could win?  I kind of forgot that we could, and, you know.” 

Film Synopsis

The title and subject matter are a reference to “The Negro Motorist Green Book,” also known as “The Negro Travelers’ Green Book.” Published from 1936-1966, the guide helped African-American travelers find lodging, restaurants, and other businesses that would serve them. It eventually covered most of North America, plus Bermuda and the Caribbean. (IMDB)

Film Fun Facts

The real Tony Lip is best known for playing Carmine Lupertazzi on The Sopranos.

The film is dedicated to “Larry the Crow,” a bird that hung around the shooting location. Viggo Mortensen cared for the animal after it was hit by a car.

The film is about “Tony Lip” Viggo Mortensen and Dr. Don Shirley’s relationship and how they changed each other in a time when it was crazy, obviously.
