SWAG ALERT: KRISTEN BELL’S EMMY GLOW!

Wednesday, September 21st, 2016

68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - ArrivalsWe all agree that Kristen Bell looked ravishing at Sunday night’s Emmy Awards.  Dressed in a floral gown by Zuhair Murad, the actress simply glowed on the red carpet.  Celebrity makeup artist, Simone Almekias-Siegl was inspired by Bell’s elegance.  “My inspiration started with the dress,” confessed Almekias-Siegl.  “It was important that her skin was fresh and dewy looking, which we achieved.”  Naturally, it all begins with luminous skin!

Almekias-Siegl began by prepping Bell’s skin.  She first wiped Bell’s face with Neutrogena’s Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes to remove any oils and then gave the skin a good scrub.  Next, Almekias-Siegl gave Bell a one-two hydration punch, applying the brand’s Hydro Boost Water Gel and Gel-Cream Eye. The unique water gel formula absorbs quickly, like a gel, but has the long-lasting, intense moisturizing power of a cream.  For makeup, she applied Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup and a bit of Skin Brightening Eye Perfector under the eyes, to highlight and cover any dark areas.  “I used almost no powder to keep her skin dewy looking,” Almekias-Siegel shared, “Just a little in the t-zone.”  Then she applied some Healthy Skin Blush in Bronzed directly to Bell’s cheeks.

For Bell’s bright eyes, Almekias-Siegel brushed some MAC shadow in Expensive Pink all over the lids and highlighted with the light pink shade in Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear Eye Shadow Palette in Cool Plum.  “I always like to mix two mascaras,” the makeup artist admitted.  “One for volume and one for lengthening to get the wispy and full lash effect.”  Her picks were Healthy Volume and Healthy Lengths Mascaras.  To complete the look, she used MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Classic Nude.  This treatment cosmetic instantly moisturize lips, while continuously conditioning them so they are softer and smoother in just 3 days.

Kerry Washington, 39, left Olivia Pope’s white hat at home when she presented at Sunday’s Academy Awards.  Dressed in a sexy Versace dress with an edgy leather corset, she project both strength and power.  Makeup artist, Carola Gonzalez, was inspired by Washington’s bold look, “it immediately called for something I had never done with Kerry before on the red carpet. I wanted the make-up to be edgy, modern, and graphic.”
     Gonzalez first moisturized Washington’s skin with Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel and then highlighted and concealed imperfections, where needed.  “I’m really excited to use Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Foundation, in Cocoa. It perfectly matches Kerry’s skin tone making it look flawlessly radiant,” she said.  She then applied  Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blush in Bronzed on the apple of Washington’s cheeks, to add a bit of color to the face.
    Gonzalez decided on the bold shape of the liner around Washington’s eyes.  “I wanted to keep it simple, but strong,” she explained.  Using Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Liner in Cosmic Black, she lined the top and bottom lash lines, connecting them at the end and inner corner of the eyes.  To pump up the volume on Washington’s lashes, she then applied a few coats of Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara in Carbon Black.  She completed the look with a nude lip color, Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Almond Nude, one of Kerry’s favorite new shades!
