Theyskens' Theory is known for cool, downtown looks, and the inspiration behind the Fall 2012 collection is unexpected... it's Grandma. Effortless hair floated down the runway thanks to a clever hair trick, and the makeup palette included warm bronze shades, taken from someone Granny might look to for beauty inspiration: the late Italian designer Elsa Schiaparelli. On Annie: BCBG; hair by TRESemmé.
Altuzarra's Middle Eastern-inspired collection included a Couture Grunge beauty look, which was all about the eyes. Besides foundation, the only other makeup applied was double-winged eyeliner, which formed drops at the tear ducts, reminding us of a swan-esque creation. We went backstage and were able to witness this eye-catching transformation for ourselves! Makeup Concept: Tom Pecheux, MAC. Model: Sui He.
Rachel Roy looked to something rather unconventional when working with the makeup and nail artists at her Fall 2012 presentation — and that something odd was dirt. Yes, dirt. But there was nothing icky about these beauty looks. See why you'll fall in love with the designer's soil-inspired style now.
To prep for last night's Grammy Awards, Carrie first used Olay Shine Control Lathering Cleanser to get a deep, down-to-the-pore cleansing to minimize shine. With all those flash bulbs on the red carpet, the last thing you want is a shiny forehead! Then she topped it off with Olay Complete Moisturizer, a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer for glowing, healthy-looking skin (and protection from UV light!).
To end the night, Carrie used Olay 2-in-1 Daily Facial Cloths to exfoliate and cleanse her skin of oil, dirt, and all that red-carpet makeup.
Like Carrie, you can get red-carpet-ready starting and ending with Olay!
"The Daily Facials are awesome at taking off makeup — especially eye makeup. You often get products that are super oily, or just don't do the job, or that sting your eyes. I honestly couldn't live on my tour bus without them." — Carrie Underwood.
Carolina Herrera is known for her classic yet dramatic pieces, so it just makes sense that her Fall 2012 hairstyles would reflect that aesthetic. Working with Orlando Pita (at Orlo Salon for Moroccanoil), Herrera's models walked the runway with coiffures he described as "really graphic, but not too romantic."
And while it's probably not practical to wear the big-time bouffants seen in the show, there's an easy way to get the gist of the style at home. Learn how to pump up the volume and to make your own Herrera-style headbands now.
Stereotypical Valentine's Day makeup is all about bombshell sex appeal, always with the same combinations of red and black. This year, try something fresh with romantic pastels instead. Celebrity makeup artist Desirae Cherman shows us how to use soft, shimmery pastels for date-night eyes, flushed cheeks, and glossy lips. It's a look sweeter than conversation hearts and pretty enough for any Valentine's celebration.
Valentine's Day and perfume go hand in hand, but one person's prized potion collection is another person's splitting headache. Since perfume is so subjective, we'd like to hear what you have to say about it. Take our Valentine's Day-inspired survey now, and tell us all about what your nose knows.
Alicia Keys is on par with Dita Von Teese when it comes to great vintage-inspired hairstyles, and her victory roll/pompadour updo at the Grammys was one of the show's standout looks. Fekkai celebrity stylist Adir Abergel created the look for Alicia, and now he's broken down exactly how he did it. See all the angles on Alicia's retro look, and find out how to do it yourself.
