Happy New Year and welcome back beautiful friends We are back for the iconic Golden Globes on their 80th anniversary! Christmas may be over, but the Elves are here to stay. Today’s glam is all about e.l.f. Cosmetics. The Iconic UK brand has always been a staple in my make-up kit for all my shows. I love that this brand is affordable, vegan, cruelty-free, and superb quality.

Makeup Supplies

This year is about boosting the complexion and being filter free. My must haves for radiant­­­ complexion in 2023 is:

  • e.l.f.® Glow Up Primer
  • e.l.f.® Halo Glow Liquid Filter
  • e.l.f.® Cosmetics High-Definition Powder
  • e.l.f.® Powder Blush Palette
  • e.l.f.® Cosmetics Glossy Lip Stain
  • Kiss Lashes® Pret-A- Porter

Makeup Steps

So, let’s get right to it. I am going to show you how to achieve this perfect filterless look.

The first thing we are going to do is apply the “Glow Up Primer.” Yes ladies, finally a primer that is clean, light weight, nourishes and moisturizes. It is infused with hyaluronic acid and goji berry. The secret to this long-lasting glow look is apply the primer first, followed by your moisturizer.

Next step is to apply “Halo Glow Liquid Filter,” which is filled with squalene and hyaluronic acid, this gives you glowing skin. You are going to apply e.l.f. Cosmetics beauty blender or buffing foundation brush. When applying you are going to use the “stippling effect brush” by tapping it into the skin until blended. After applying the foundation, it is that time to bake and set with the setting powder. Yes, that is right “powder.” The difference is e.l.f. Cosmetics’ High-Definition Powder is loose, finely milled, and infused with sapphire particles to give a perfect soft glow, and blurs imperfections. This will give you that “selfie” ready look always.

Lastly, to finish this look, apply blush and bronzer using the powder blush palette by e.l.f. Cosmetics. This gives those cheekbones the perfect contour. I love e.l.f. Cosmetics glossy lip stain in a “fiery red” infused with Jojoba oil to give the perfect hydration and long-lasting lip. Next, I love using the Kiss Lashes from the masterpiece collection in “Pret-A- Porter.” These give you the perfect volume and eye definition.

Now let’s get ready for our red-carpet selfies!

Commatteo ~ New Lines

Commatteo ~ New Lines

Antonella A Commatteo, the designer of Commatteo, takes the runway wearing an asymmetrical top with a peek-a-boo short underneath. The attention to her personal style concludes the runway with a strong influence line created in the collection. Lines bring this collection a perspective that creates a personal fashion statement.

The line creation for some dresses uses a slit to create a movement that is unique to the dress. The ability to vent the dress around provides a revealing sexy appeal in the movement. Taking the dart off the gown brings a free flow movement to the gown.

The empire waistline silhouette fits the bodice, but here is designed without the normally gathered skirt. The long loose flow provides more volume to the gown and places emphasizes on the bust line. The use of lines in different directions and angles provides a visual dimension and depth to the collection.

The front of Ava Capra’s, model, dress as well as the gown was worn by Sibley Scoles, E! News Correspondent, creates a line with the placement of the geometric shapes. The back of Capra’s dress is sheer black. Continuing with the revelation of sensuality. The pleat lines below the waist provide a voluminous flow.

The dress worn by Capra the collar gives the illusion that it continues down the back. When the model turns around you see that the collar is round. Scoles’ dress uses a combination of traditional collars and necklines to create the height and depth. The various necklines in the collection combine traditional collars and neckline to create new shapes, dimensions, and illusions.

“The runway makeup styling is natural especially the brow. We are going to see more natural brows this spring.” (Alejandra Barraza, TNT Agency) “The hair is soft waves with a little curl. This summer season does not forget the sunscreen for your hair.” (Maily O’Neil, Mai Salon El Paseo). The styling was slightly individualized with each look.

Heather Larose, singer-songwriter, and Meredith O’Connor, singer, and Anti-bullying activist, took the runway with a performance. They present messages about the ability to express individuality without bullying.

Commatteo states, “My inspiration for all my collections has always stemmed from my life’s journey. This part of my life was reaching the professional, ageless female, who loves fashion, constantly on the run, needing a mix and match pieces to change from day to  evening.” The collection brings the ability for self-expression with the ability to combine pieces and use the lines for accentuating. The fall-winter 2017 collection brings self-expression to the forefront with elegance and beauty.  See the full collection here.

Red carpet ready takes months of planning when you grace the Oscars® red carpet. “Look here, hey over here, look to your left, look to your right, it’s me” hundreds of photographers shout to each celebrity on the Oscars‘ red carpet. Getting to this moment in the day takes a team putting together the best-dressed celebrity. There are many red carpets in Hollywood on the day of The Academy Awards. The personal brand image plays no higher importance than on this day when thousands of cameras are capturing every detail.

Lady Gaga Oscars Red Carpet

2016 Oscars red carpet presented exceptional design, style, and fashion. The classic designs to a jumpsuit take the styling to a personal level. The couple of the evening was Leo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.

The real miss of the evening was Heidi Klum.  The design and styling is the worst dressed. The layers of mixed materials and large flowers were only part of the problem. The diagonal cut with the peek-a-boo cleavage was just awkward. We agree there were some real misses on the red carpet this year, including Kate Winslet.

The team’s best dressed was Olivia Wilde. This stunning Valentino Haute Couture gown provided a bareback and beautiful cleavage. The chocker provided an additional sex appeal. Gabriel, @GabrielStylesU, stated, “One thing I feel all females lacked last night was accessories.”

The red carpets are endless on this night in Hollywood.  There are all the after parties, viewing parties, and more. Vanity Fair held an exceptional event and had a fun red carpet. Elton John always has a viewing party for his Aids Foundation. The other parties include:

  • Governor’s Ball
  • Fox After Party
  • InStyle Oscar Viewing Party
  • Oscar Salute
  • Mercedes-Benz USA & African American Film Critics Association Oscar Viewing Party

This day of ceremonies and parties requires detail to every aspect of styling and design. Photographers capturing every aspect of celebrities looks. A team of:
This team spends months preparing all the details for each look the celebrity will need for the evening full of events. Sean James, make-up and hair stylist to the stars, says,

“You know there are so many images that day on the red carpet. When
you are getting ready for a red carpet event go through some images
that you might want to look like. What are you going for as a look?
Remember head texture and what is important when choosing your
preferred look. This is even a good idea for men. What do they want
to do? Do they want spiky and short? He doesn’t want to be slick or
more gel. There is so many choices these days with Instagram
and Pinterest, make sure you choose the one that’s right for you.”

Sean James did Chris Hardwick‘s look for the two red carpet event he attended for the Oscars this year. Sean James has styled Jamie Lee Curtis, worked with Talking Dead actors, Kim Kardashian, and many more.
The stylist’s job is to bring all looks together that the team has envisioned for the celebrity. Gabriel Styles U, says, “Bringing one’s image to life is simple. BE YOURSELF. Don’t conform to what people want or think you should look like. Wear your clothing with confidence smile and seize the day.” Gabriel has styled:
