Michelle Phan on tips for aspiring bloggers to successful sharing…

Michelle Phan on her earliest makeup memory, and how it shaped her into the beauty guru she is today…

Before she hit the airwaves, she also shared some expert make-up advice and the biggest beauty mistake she sees women make:

1. Fall Favorite: Emerald Eyes
“Metallic emerald is going to be a really big trend this fall. And, if you’re not super into makeup, you can just pop a little emerald on the water line.”

2. Top Secret: Red LED Light Therapy
“I use red LED light therapy once every three days at night. This helps stimulate collagen and plump up my skin. And it’s been scientifically proven to work! I’m a huge fan of it, especially when I’m traveling.”

3. Beauty Blunder: Un-Maintained Eyebrows
“The biggest mistake I find women make is they neglect their brows. It can really make or break your face. People who don’t have a lot of brows don’t fill them in and people who do, don’t trim."

Get The Look: Anne Hathaway by Celebrity Hairstylist Adir Abergel

I have been seeing the ever so gorgeous actress on a daily basis as she graces November's cover of Harper's Bazaar and think Anne Hathaway has never looked more beautiful than she does at this very moment. With that being said, Celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel created the look for Anne Hathaway's red carpet premiere of ‘Interstellar’ using Leonor Greyl products last night.

“I was inspired for the look by the midnight blue silk dress by Richard Nicoll and James Bank jewelry that she’s wearing.  It reminded me of the girls in the early 90’s that wore those great slip dresses.  I wanted to keep the look deconstructed to keep the same energy since the dress is flowing, so I created a look with effortless texture and movement with a 90’s edge.

First, I started by applying Leonor Greyl Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice from the roots to midshaft to create volume and memory to the style.  I didn’t apply any mousse to the ends of her hair to keep the weight around the structure of the head, right around the roots.  Then, I created a deep side part following the arch of her brow. I applied Éclat Naturel on the ends to give it a little more separation but at the same time protect the hair from heat styling and then used a diffuser to dry her hair completely, making sure to scrunch the hair so that the natural texture came through.

Once her hair was completely dry, I used a 3/4” curling iron and created a soft, defined wave by winding it around the iron.  The secret to this kind of look is to curl from the roots to the midshaft, leaving the ends out.  It’s really about just creating movement and a very loose wave, rather than a curl.  This adds amazing texture and separation to give it that effortless style. 

I readjusted the deep side part so that it came down and covered half of one eyebrow; it really gave it that 90’s edge.

I finished the look by using Leonor Greyl Laque Souple.  This will lock in the style all night without weighing it down.

The beautiful thing about Leonor Greyl products is that they’re all about healthy, beautiful texture.  Back in the 90’s it was rougher and more bedhead, so the look still has the angles of the 90’s, but I modernized it by using these quality products that brought out the health and shine of the hair.”

Get the Look: Felicity Jones

Celebrity makeup artist Sabrina Bedrani used Orlane products to create the look for Felicity Jones for the red carpet premiere of ‘The Theory of Everything’ tonight.

“Felicity is wearing a black gown with the top and bottom in lace, so we wanted to create a look that was more edgy with a strong smokey eye – not too romantic as to contrast the lace.

I started by applying the Orlane Absolute Skin Recovery Care Anti-Fatigue Serum to her skin.  This serum was perfect for today because we’ve been doing press for 4 days and with having makeup on and off, on and off, the skin can get a little dull.  Right after applying this serum, I felt the skin plumping up and the makeup went on so much smoother.  I followed by applying the Super-Moisturizing Light Cream and then while the skin was absorbing it all, I began working on her eyes.

I applied Pale Gold from Antonym Eyeshadow Quattro in Noisette all over her lid.  Then I took Moiré from Votre Vu Palette Play in Violette and applied that on the outer corner of the eye and blended it inward so less color would be towards the inner corner to create that gorgeous gradient effect.  Taking Black from Antonym Eyeshadow Quattro in Croisette, I concentrated on the outer corner and blended inward again, stopping just shy of the purple shade.  Then, taking a clean brush I blended the crease out so there was no harsh lines.  Next, I lined the top and bottom of her eyes with Antonym Ecocert Certified Natural Waterproof Eye Pencil in Noir and smudged it out.  I finished off her eyes with two coats of Orlane Volume Care Mascara.

After cleaning up any fall out from shadow under her eyes, I applied Orlane Vitality Radiance Care Eye Contour to hydrate the under eye area.  I used a Dior foundation to even out the skin tone and went back with Orlane Highlight Care Brush under the eyes to clean it up a bit and highlighted a little where needed, like around the nose.  To apply the Highlight Care Brush, I dabbed the product from the applicator onto the back of my hand to remove any excess and then applied directly to her skin going back to pick up product from my hand as needed.  To set the look, I dusted Orlane Transparent Loose Powder all over her face.

To give some color back to the skin and a little more definition, I applied Antonym Ecocert Certified Organic Baked Blush in Peach on the apples of the cheeks and worked the product upward towards the temples.  Next, I applied a bit of Orlane Bronzer in Soleil Cuivre 02 underneath the cheekbones using Antonym Contour Brush #3.

Since the eyes were the main focus of the look, we kept her lips natural.  I first moisturized her lips with Orlane Extreme Line-Reducing Lip Care for the base and then applied the lipstick on top.”

Delphine Manivet- NYBFW Fall/Winter 2015

Delphine was inspired by the wind. She imagined how her natural fabrics would move as the wind passed through them. I saw in her collection a line for brides that was fluid, modern yet has an ode to the 20's- 50's genres as her hats by Maison Michel,shoes by Repetto and low boots by Huapolandia had a vintage vibe to them. The fashion I witnessed was TIMELESS.

This collection was called Pagan Bride as Delphine was using it's meaning in it's oldest term: the respect for what is alive, beyond the being. 

Lead Make Up Artist for MAC Cosmetics Gina Bettelli created an ethereal overall look with Zachary Rej Morad from Warren-Tricomi on hair creating a Pagan Bride with just a few side edgy looking braids. The overall look was on trend and modern, yet still had a vintage vibe to it.

A very special thanks to the talented Gali Silvester for allowing me to see how MOTU production and casting works behind the scenes....

Stylist Gali Silvester
