Even natural beauties, like Heidi Klum, know when to call in the glam squad.  In preparation for Monday’s Emmy Awards, Klum enlisted the expertise of superstar hairdresser, Lorenzo Martin, celebrity makeup artist, Linda Hay, and nail artist, Tom Bachik to get red carpet ready!  Bachik used a custom mixed nude on Klum’s manicure, while Hay chose from a plethora of Charlotte Tilbury cosmetics.  Walking the press line, dressed in a stunning, nude Zac Posen gown, Klum simply glowed.  To see how she got her look, click on the video below.

StrobingWhen Max Factor applied makeup to the faces of some of Hollywood’s most famous icons — Joan Crawford, Judy Garland, Bette Davis, and Claudette Colbert — the studio artist was keenly aware of the importance of good lighting.  To balance the shaded contouring of noses, cheekbones, and chin, he developed an opposite technique to harness the light.  Highlighting or strobing is, in fact, tricking the light.  According to Sarah-Jane Froom, an international makeup artist for bareMinerals, “The key is to apply highlighter where light would naturally hit the face – such as the high parts of the cheekbones, down the nose, below the brow bone and above the cupid’s bow.”

Which products do the pros use?  According to a report in ForbesPati Dubroff, makeup artist to Natalie Portland and Charlize Theron, advocates Nars Dual Intensity Blush in Jubilation.  Linda Hay, makeup artist to Heidi Klum and Emily Blunt, favors Kevyn Aucoin’s Celestial Liquid and Candlelight and Charlotte Tilbury’s Wonder Glow.  For a budget-friendly product, Stephen Dimmick reaches for Sonia Kashuk Luminosity Highlighter Stick.  Whichever the product, the pros warn not to apply too much.  A heavy-hand will give a shiny appearance, which easily translates to sweaty.
