Christian Siriano

Designer: Christian Siriano

Makeup:  Polly Osmond for Hourglass

The Scoop:  Inspired by a recent trip to Isla Mujeres on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, and the destination’s exuberant color palette, the Christian Siriano Spring 2014 collection features vivid prints, woven raffias, and sculptural organzas all in vibrant hues. Siriano “wanted the collection to be light, feminine and romantic […] like the girl left the beach but she had a cocktail party to go to, and threw on a dress, a bright lip, and little highlighter.”

Skin: Prep skin with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, infused with botanical oils, and follow with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer for a luminous complexion. Conceal any dark circles or imperfections with Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer.

Cheeks: To create a multi-dimensional glow, apply all three shades from Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette (NEW) to the cheeks using a circular motion. Dab Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum onto the apples of the cheeks for a hint of tropical sheen.

Eyes: Apply the Incandescent shade from Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette (NEW) all over the lids. Follow with the shimmering Shell shade from Hourglass Vol. 6 Eyeshadow Palette, applied to the inner corner of eyes. Use the same shade to create a diffused liner along the top and bottom of the lash lines. Finish with a coat of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara.
Brows: Brush a small amount of Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum onto brows to create definition and a little shine.

Lips: Prep lips earlier with Hourglass No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil for superior hydration. Apply Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Muse, an orange coral shade, to the lips. Create a diffused pout by softening the outline of the lips with a lip brush.

Who: Christina Hendricks

What: 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards

Hair Stylist: Gregory Russell  for John Frieda

Inspiration:  Taking inspiration from Christina’s platinum Christian Siriano dress, celebrity stylist, Gregory Russell created big Hollywood waves for the red carpet. Russell described Christina’s look as “sophisticated old Hollywood Glamour.

  Step 1 – Texturize

On dry hair, apply Frizz-Ease® Curl Reviver Styling Mousse ($5.99 at drugstores) to 1″ sections until all of the hair has been covered. This is to build texture while taming frizz. Brush hair using a Mason Pearson flat brush to dry out the mousse and create volume.

Step 2 – Secure the Style

Take hair in 1″ sections, spray with Frizz-Ease® Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hair Spray ($5.99 at drugstores) and wrap around a 1″ barrel curling iron. Pin each curl and let them set for 45 minutes. Brush out each curl and then backcomb the underneath to add extra fullness and shape.

Step 3 – Polish

Use a dime size amount of Frizz-Ease® Secret Weapon® Flawless Finishing Crème ($5.99 at drugstores) through the bangs to create perfect definition and added shine. To finish, mist a thin coat of hairspray in an even, all-around motion, to set the look.

Makeup Artist: Vanessa Scali

Inspiration:  I was inspired by the soft, feminine look of the dress and its cool, shimmery neutral color against her skin. I kept her face soft and romantic, but added contrast and strength with a bold lip color.”

Cheeks: Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain in Flush was applied to the apples of the cheeks blending outward to the cheekbones.

Eyes: For definition and intensity, she lined her eyes with Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Liner in Ebony at the base of the lashes and on the inside top rim of the eye. Using the lighter shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy, she swept the color from the lash line to the eye brow. Then, she used a touch of the deeper shade blending it well, from the lash line to just above the crease and swept past the natural outer corner to exaggerate and elongate the eye. This color continues very subtly under the bottom lashes. She finished the eyes with lush, flirty lashes – Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara was used all over the lashes and Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer concentrated on the center of the lashes.

Lips: She gave Christina a bold, strong lip with Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon.
