Did you catch the Teen Choice Awards Sunday night and covet the looks of the gorgeous, stylish ladies that attended? I DID! Those Hollywood starlets are all naturally beautiful ladies…but with the help of some of the top stylists and products transformed into ‘blue’ carpet stunners for the event. Want to look like Shay Mitchell, Willow Shields and Victoria Justice? Here is the inside scoop on how to re-create the looks directly from the stylists who worked on these breathtaking actresses…
The Hunger Games’ Willow Shields sported a sleek, side part stunner with the help of her stylist, Cooper. We are also LOVING her multi-panel leather skirt ensemble by Marni…
GET THE LOOK: WILLOW SHIELDS
Begin the look with clean, damp hair (Cooper used Matrix Cleansing Conditioner). Next, spray in Matrix Style Link Heat Buffer to give it extra moisture, air dry hair but keep the roots damp. The heat buffer will allow the straightener to move smoothly through the hair. To obtain her sleek and straight look, section hair into 4 quadrants then start at the nap of the neck and use the T3 flat iron to straighten hair, working through the sections – doing the top last. Use Matrix Style Link Prep Smooth Setter Smoothing Cream and run through entire hair and brush through. Then run a smaller flat iron through the “presenting area” where the part is to ensure this portion of the hair is looking its best and is polished.
Finally, use Matrix Style Link Style Fixer Finishing Hairspray to complete the look. Start by spraying it on the part, then all over the crown to make sure the top is in place but the bottom half still has movement.
We aren’t lying when we tell you how to look just like Pretty Little Liar’s Shay Mitchell….her deep plunge, black/white Versus Versace outfit was an award winner in itself. Shay’s makeup artist Patrick Ta shares the scoop on how to recreate her sultry look.
GET THE LOOK: SHAY MITCHELL
Start by prepping skin with Bioré Charcoal Pore Minimizer to get deep into pores and draw out dirt and oil (this allows the make up to lay smoothly on the skin. Once the face is clean, apply Hourglass Primer Serum to moisturize and help the makeup lay beautifully. Next, Armani Designer Lift Foundation to ensure a bright complexion without appearing too heavy. To contour the hallows and accentuate the cheekbones use Tom Ford Intensity One Contour Pallet and Mac Select Moisturecover (to highlight) and Mac Cosmetics Golden Bronze (to the apples of the cheeks). Finish the face off with a Translucent Powder from La Mer to help ensure long wear. To create Shay’s eyes, Mac Pigment in Tan was used on the on the lid and dark matte brown hue to the outer crease and bottom lash line for drama and definition. To get long lash wear, Ta recommends curling lashes and applying two coats of waterproof mascara – adding Esqido Lashes for some twinkle. To create a thicker brow like Shay’s, try an Anastasia Eyebrow Pencil in Brunette. Finally, complete this stunning look using Tom Ford bronze nude lipstick Smoke Sable (which compliments the blush).
Victoria Justice ROCKED an emerald green flapper-inspired Hervé Leger minidress to the TCA (where she presented an award to her ‘celebrity doppelgänger’ Nina Dobrev). Her hair complimented her outfit perfectly, thanks to Scunci Hair Stylist Laura Polko; offering an effortless style with a modem sculptured appeal.
GET THE LOOK: VICTORIA JUSTICE
Starting with clean, damp, 80% dried hair – Laura sprayed in Sun Bum Beach Formula Sea Spray to enhance and create natural texture. Blow-dry hair until almost 100% using her fingers and not a brush. Polko recommends this method over a brush to keep the natural texture of the hair, versus destructing them with a brush or comb. Work with your natural part before officially styling. Next, use a flat iron to put a natural “bend” in the hair, working with each existing wave and curl to smooth, define and enhance. Finally, make finishing touches before setting with Oribe Dry Texturing Spray.
