Best Beauty Looks from the AMA’s (And How You…

If you watched the American Music Awards last week, then you not only saw some impressive performances and fashion statements, but you also saw some flawless makeup and gorgeous lashes. We loved many of the super glamorous looks we saw and we’re sharing some of the best beauty looks from the AMA’s with you, plus how YOU can get the same looks . . . you’re welcome!


Taylor Swift

Taylor’s Look:

  • Metallic eye shadow
  • Winged eyeliner
  • Feathery lashes
  • A soft nude lip

Get Her Look:

  • For the eye shadow, we love the sultry shadow palette from Sephora which includes a silver metallic shade like Taylor wore, plus 13 more shades.
  • To get that perfect winged liner look, Maybelline‘s felt-tip liquid eyeliner glides on smooth for precise control.
  • For the lashes, a full set of Volume Lash Extensions will have your lashes looking just like Taylor’s!
  • Then for the lips, NARS Honolulu Honey is the perfect blend of natural beige with a satin finish.

Ciara’s Look:

  • Gold, shimmery eyes
  • Lifted lashes
  • Nude glossed lips

Get Her Look:

  • Bobbi Brown’s shimmer wash eye shadow in ‘champagne’ is the perfect shade to highlight and illuminate the eyes like we see on Ciara.
  • Her lashes looked beautifully natural with a lovely lift and curl. You can get this same classic look with a simple Lash Lift Perm which will define and curl your lashes seamlessly in one treatment. (Note: A lash lift perm is not available in New Jersey.)
  • Try Lancome’s L’Absolu Lacquer Gloss in Beige Aura to add the same nude glossy look to your lips.

Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa’s Look:

  • Nude matte lip
  • Full, flared lashes
  • Arched brows

Get Her Look:

  • To get lips like Vanessa, try this matte lipstick from Ulta by Anastasia Beverly Hills and go for the color, Soft Touch.
  • Recreate her lash look by getting a full set of our Volume Lash Extensions. Volume lashes offer incredible fullness with 2 or more of our lightest lash extensions applied to 1 natural eyelash.
  • To get your brows looking like Vanessa’s, get them threaded. Eyebrow threading is an innovative option for brow shaping and hair removal. It also has many benefits over waxing and plucking and can give you this same sexy arched look.

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer’s Look:

  • Contoured face
  • Super dark, warm smokey eyes
  • Volume lashes

Get Her Look:

  • To conquer this contoured look, try the ‘Step-by-Step Contour Kit’ by Smashbox.
  • Get the same sultry smokey eye with warm tones by using the Makeup Atelier Eye Shadow Palette by Beautylish.
  • A full set of Volume Eyelash Extensions will complete the look and have you looking just as fab as JLo herself!

Dua Lipa

Dua’s Look:

  • Shades of brown on her lips and eyes
  • Full lashes on the top and bottom
  • Bold brows (that are noticeably a perfect match to her hair color.)

Get Her Look:

  • Brown shades are all the rage this season and you can get this same edgy yet feminine look on your lips with Yves Saint Laurent’s ROUGE PUR COUTURE Lipstick with shade 53 Beige Promenade from Sephora. Continue the brown tones on the eyes by using a bronze shade like MAC’s Charcoal Brown eye shadow.
  • A full lash line on the top AND bottom can be achieved by getting Lash Extensions -and yes, you can even get lash extensions on your lower lid. This will open up your eyes and brighten your face even more than just having lash extensions on the top!
  • For the same bold brow look as Dua, get a simple brow tint. This service is ideal for those who want to darken their brows or simply give them a bolder look. And it also saves you the hassle of filling in your brows – which is a huge time saver! (Note: Lash tinting is available at many Lash Lounge locations, but not in the following states: New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts or California.)

Meghan Markle’s Big Day Beauty Look and How to…

There was so much to be in awe of over the weekend when it came to the Royal Wedding, but our number one awe inspiring moment was when we first saw the bride. Meghan Markle stayed true to her sense of style keeping her big day look classic, modern and not overdone. Same went for her makeup and since it’s officially wedding season, we’re breaking down her big day beauty look and how you can get the same look for your big day – or simply everyday!

One guess what our favorite part of her look was . . . her lashes and brows, of course!

FACE

Her Look: Gorgeous and glowing, the bride went for a natural look when it came to her face. She’s all about letting her freckles show, therefor she didn’t try to cover them up. While she skipped the heavy foundation, her makeup artist for the wedding (Daniel Martin) did add a bit of concealer under her eye.

Get The Look: Meghan’s said she’s a fan of super-light foundations (again, so her freckles can show through). To get there, Meghan’s pre-engagement makeup artist, Lydia Sellers, says she would reach for Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation in shade 6.25 with a few drops of 5.5. Bounced on with a slightly wet Beautyblender, it gives light, dewy coverage. (via glamour.com)

EYES + LASHES

The Look: Her eyes were the main beauty feature as she wore smoky gray eyeshadow and her lashes were bold with the most lovely full and fluttery appearance.

Get The Look:  Rather than overdoing the eyeliner, Meghan tends to play up her lashes. The best way to get this lovely look is to get Volume Lash Extensions! The fullness, length, curl and deep, natural color and overall look is just the ticket to having royally gorgeous lashes.

For eyeliners, her two favorites are M.A.C. Teddy, a gorgeous, gold-flecked brown, and Chanel Eyeliner in Cassis, a shimmery plum that she draws on her upper lash line and water line. (via glamour.com)

LIPS

The Look: Her lips were painted a peachy pale pink shade of lipstick that had a satin finish. (via hapersbazaar.com)

Get The Look: The word on the street is that Markle’s a fan of Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in Very Victoria ($34), a matte, dusty rose-tinted nude that seems polished enough even for the halls of Buckingham Palace or, say, the queen’s personal tea room. Not only does the pink tone give it some warmth—a nonnegotiable when you’re dealing with nude shades—but the matte finish makes it feel more modern than your average neutral lipstick. Also worth noting: Celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury is one of the best-known Brits in her field, so Markle’s choice could be a sly nod to her new country. (via glamour.com)

BROWS

The Look: Not overly bold but still quite beautiful, her brows were striking, defined and filled-in to anchor her face.

Get The Look: Sherrille Riley is responsible for Meghan’s brows and told metro.co.uk how she created the perfect brow style for her, which she refers to as the ‘Audrey Hepburn Brow’. The style is to keep the brows as straight as possible with a gradual lift at the tail ends and the style is completely arch-less and in-line with the natural brow. It’s a really modern twist on the iconic brow shape that Audrey was famous for. This effortless shape lifts the face and harmonises the features. Threading is one of the methods Riley uses to achieve this classic brow look on Meghan.

10 Facts About Brow Tinting and Threading You May…

If your brows are in need of a makeover, brow tinting and threading can do wonders! See below for 10 facts about these two fabulous services that you may or may not know.

Eyebrow Threading

  1. The results from eyebrow threading lasts longer than plucking or waxing. Plucking lasts 2–4 weeks, waxing lasts 3–6 weeks and eyebrow threading (wait for it . . . ) can last up to 8 weeks!
  2. Threading removes an entire row of hairs at a time, which will give your brows a more precise shape
  3. If you have ever experienced ingrown hairs after plucking, you will not have to worry about that happening with threading.
  4. Threading is a much faster process than waxing or plucking.
  5. Brow threading will not irritate your skin like waxing often can.

Eyebrow Tinting

  1. Brow tinting is a service that doesn’t involve hair removal but uses a semi-permanent dye to enhance the color, shape, and thickness of your brows.
  2. Tinting is the perfect way to add a color boost to your brows (and even your lashes) and is ideal for those with light hair.
  3. A brow tint can widen your arches and elongate your eyebrows, which will give your brows a more defined, beautiful look.
  4. If you have naturally fine brows or you over-plucked back in the day like many of us did (ooops!) a brow tint can help by boosting the volume of your eyebrows.
  5. Even if your eyebrows are already dark, a tint can grab those peach-fuzz hairs and fill in the shape of your brows. You may discover you have hairs you didn’t know were there!
