SALMA HAYEK: STEAL HER GALA STYLE!

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Stunning Salma Hayek appeared with husband, François-Henri Pinault, at the Met’s first monograph show since 1983.  Celebrity makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen was inspired by the Gala’s Rei Kawakubo/Comme Des Garçons theme.  “We decided on a soft, beautiful look with a zen feel. We went with a fairly simple look that emphasized eyes, eyebrows and dewy skin,” he shared, as he provided the step-by-step to Hayek’s Gala Style!

VanLeeuwen prepped Hayek’s beautiful skin with A Complete Youth Preserve Serum (“I love the way it smells, the way it feels, and the way it made Salma’s skin absolutely come alive”), which he applied with his hands. He then slathered on A Complete Facial Youth Moisturizing Cream with a sponge, followed by A Complete Youth Preserve Eye Contouring Cream.

For Hayek’s striking eyes, VanLeeuwen applied Shiseido Shimmering Eye Cream Color in Fog to her lids, lining her upper and lower inner lash lines with Nuance Long Lasting Shadow Stick in Shimmered Bark.  Then he swiped her lashes with Diorshow Mascara in Black.  After applying a layer of foundation he used Nuance Flawless Finish Illuminating Blush & Bronzer Duo in Bronzed Rosewood on Salma’s skin, followed by blush on the apples of her cheeks.  Finally, VanLeeuwen lined Salma’s lips with Makeup Forever High Precision Lip Pencil in Number 14 over Senna Lip Lacquer in Belladonna.

CONFIDENCE (AND FAITH) IN AGING!

Preparing for her first arena tour in ten years, the 70-city, Soul2Soul The World Tour 2017 with husband, Tim McGraw, wife, mother, and country superstar, Faith Hill, certainly knows the meaning of hard work.  Since releasing her first album in 1993, Hill has sold more than thirty million albums, earned twelve Country Music Awards and four American Music Awards.  But touring, “no matter who you are, it takes a lot out of you. It really takes a toll. The show alone is so physically challenging because there’s a lot involved, and then you’re singing on top of it,” she shares in an interview with New Beauty.  As the There You’ll Be chanteuse approaches 50 this September, she takes a rather laid-back approach to aging.  “I honestly don’t pay attention to it. If I did, my girls would notice and I don’t want that. It’s not a message I want them to have. The secret is being confident—with your age, with yourself.”  Hill’s three teenage daughters (Gracie, 19, Maggie, 18, and Audrey, 15), love wearing makeup.  “My girls have a better beauty regimen than I do. I don’t know where they get it from. I look like a clown when I do eyeliner!” Hill, who credits happiness for keeping her skin rosy, prefers to wear no makeup and her hair tied back.  McGraw appreciates his wife’s natural look, however, “Before I put it up in my ponytail, he always tells me to wear it down because it’s his favorite.”
