KORRES: GREEK YOGHURT SMOOTHIE PRIMING MOISTURIZER





I have been using Korres products for years as they are a results driven brand. Now you can prep skin for your marathon days with NEW Greek Yoghurt Smoothie Priming Moisturizer, the lightweight answer for heavyweight hydration. 


This protein-packed booster preps, hydrates and strengthens skin with 26% Greek Yoghurt proteins in every serving. An ingredient used for centuries in Greece for its smoothing and strengthening properties, Greek Yoghurt contains two and a half times the protein of regular yoghurt. By boosting your skincare routine with protein-rich Greek Yoghurt, you deliver the same benefits to your skin that protein delivers to your body – helping to nourish, strengthen, and repair.

Greek Yoghurt Smoothie is a weightless, multi-action priming moisturizer packed with probiotics, proteins, and minerals to deeply nourish and smooth skin, while also prepping it for flawless makeup application and all-day wear. Formulated with three types of hydrating hyaluronic acid and powerful skin-saving antioxidants and extracts, the smoothie gives skin inner strength for healthy-looking skin on the surface.

Get The Look: Golden Globe Winner Claire Foy





WHO: Claire Foy

WHERE: 74th Golden Globe Awards

HAIR BY: Jillian Halouska for SHOW Beauty

INSPIRATION: Effortless elegance, a simple yet modern style to complement Claire’s formal gown.

TIPS/TECHNIQUE:

To recreate Claire’s wispy, undone look, wash tresses with SHOW Beauty Pure Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner and rough dry hair (no brush needed!) to keep elasticity and create movement.

Next, spritz the SHOW Beauty Sheer Thermal Protect from root to tip and wrap small 1” sections of hair around a ¾ inch curling iron.

After each section, immediately pull the hair downwards to elongate and loosen the curl. Repeat until every hair is curled, this will help achieve a wispy do. 

Then spray the SHOW Beauty Premiere Dry Shampoo onto the roots to create a grip for the bobby pins to grab onto. Starting at the nape of the neck, take a small section of hair and pin to the opposite side. Moving upwards, continue pinning hair in a criss cross pattern, leaving out a few front and side pieces. Gently sweep remaining hair back and spray into place with the SHOW Beauty Premiere Finishing Spray.

Get The Look: Emmanuelle Criqui


WHO: Emmanuelle Chriqui
WHERE: Art of Elysium HEAVEN Gala 

MAKEUP BY: Daniel Martin, Honest Beauty Creative Color Consultant 





TIPS/TECHNIQUE: To achieve Emmanuelle’s subtle, healthy glow its all about perfecting the base. Using the new Honestly Luminizing Foundation in Golden & Camel, start in the center of the face around the nose and buff outwards toward your ears, forehead, and chin. By buffing on the foundation, it allows you to get a balanced glow and more buildable coverage. Next, apply the Concealer Duo in Disappearing Dune to camouflage any imperfections. Apply the creamy highlighter from the Contour + Highlight Kit (shade 3) on cheek and brow bones followed by a light dusting of Luminizing Powder in Dusk Reflection. For the final touch, swipe the Invisible Blurring Powder across your t-zone to set the makeup while allowing radiance to shine through on the highest parts of the face to give you that lit from within look.

Get The Look: Zoë Saldana

Celebrity makeup artist Vera Steimberg used Votre Vu products to create presenter Zoë Saldana’s red carpet look for the 2017 Golden Globe Awards.










INSPIRATION

Zoë is wearing a Gucci gown in two shades of pink so we wanted makeup that was glowy but clean, to complement the soft colors of the dress.”

COMPLEXION 

I used Laura Mercier Primer in Radiance to give her skin a glowy undertone, then applied a mix of two foundations, one from Laura Mercier and the other from Makeup Forever. Together they match her complexion perfectly. I finished by sweeping Guerlain Terracotta Bronzer all over her face to enhance her skin’s radiance but keep it looking clean.


EYES
 
On her lids, I used a mix of the neutral brown and pinky shades in the Votre Vu Palette Play Quad in Nude, then I traced her upper and lower lash-lines with Votre Vu Le Joli Crayon in Chocolat. On her top lashes, I smudged the eyeliner slightly to create a smoky effect. 

I finger-tapped Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerize in Bette, a coppery cream, on just the center of her lids, added a few individual lashes her eyes’ outer corners, and swept on two coats of Votre Vu Eiffel Power Mascara in Black.

LIPS

I traced her lips with Votre Vu Drawmatic Lip Liner in Naked, then colored them in with Votre Vu Champs-éLIPsée Lip Crayon in Spark. I finished by tapping Votre Vu Lip Lustre in Demure to just the center of her bottom lip.
