On her show Seriously Funny Kids, Heidi Klum asks 7-year-old Ethan to do her makeup under the guise that her makeup artist didn't show up that day. Telling him not to hold back, Heidi's end results are somewhat reminiscent of the smudgy, colorful palettes seen at Vivienne Westwood's Fall 2011 show earlier this week. The adorable grade-schooler uses red lipstick, purple shadow (which, he correctly explains, will make her eyes pop when paired with green), and even a little glitter on the forehead to create the palette.
My favorite parts are when he blows on Heidi's face multiple times to wipe away excess powder, and the fact that he creates a lovely unibrow to pull the look together. Check out the gallery below to see a closer look at what went down in this episode, "Heidi Gets Made-up and Over."
Purple eye shadow lights up brown eyes beautifully, and it's a subtle enough shade to wear day or night. To get a perfect-anytime look like Halle Berry's, a shimmery or semisheer shade of plum is best, and there are many options available. If you want a variety of color choices and some application guidance, check out the Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow Quad ($5), and if you want a single, softer hue, try Stila Cosmetics Eye Shadow Pan in Barefoot Contessa ($18).
There are also plenty of other pretty shades you might want to try depending on your color preferences, eye color, and skin tone, so to look at any of the other product suggestions, just click on the images above.>
To get the look, Villa suggests combining one to two thermal techniques for unexpected, multidimensional texture. Use a texturizing iron, like the Textur iron ($230) from Villa's eponymous line, to change the surface area of the hair and to build the foundation for additional texture. Use a flat iron, like his brand's Sleekr iron ($230) for sleekness, and also to add wave and curl. "Playing with the direction of how hair is coiled around a curling iron, as well as the wrapping technique and angle, can yield endless versions of texture," Villa adds.
The brand's Face Treatment ($32), used in step one, is a very mild soap in bar form. It has just the perfect amount of sudsing action with a faint, fresh nonsynthetic aroma. Skin feels clean and refreshed after use, with no painful stinging sensations or can't-move-my-face tightness. See more when you keep reading.
