So I just saw The Duchess where Keira Knightley stars as Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire who’s in a love rectangle with her husband, her lover, and her husband’s lover. I liked Keira’s makeup in the film, it wasn’t overly done, but it still rung true to the era. Makeup artist, Daniel Philips said “in brief, I would describe Keira’s look as a soft, muted, pretty and ethereal version of late 18th century make-up based on painting by Joshua Reynolds and Mary Cosway – prolific painters of the period. It’s about finding a ‘middle ground’ on what otherwise be a garish make-up period.”
Here’s what was used on set:
Personally, I love DIY beauty treatments. They’re always so fun. Plus, they’re always so economical, which is always good thing in this sour economical climate. Well, it seems that Catherine Zeta Jones is also a fan of at-home beauty treatments. The actress revealed some of her favorite beauty tips in the recent issue of Interview Magazine.
Frederic Fekkai stylist, Renato Campora, created Kate’s glamorous hairdo – side swept bangs and a low bun – for the 09 SAG Awards. Here’s how to get the look:
Renato applied Frederic Fekkai More All Day Density Styling Whip to wet hair for volume. Apply Frederic Fekkai Coif Magnifique Ultra-Light Finishing Creme to the ends. Then blow dry hair using a large round brush. Part to one side. Then once hair is dry, use a one inch curling to curl hair throughout. Apply Frederic Fekkai Technician Glaze, starting at the ends and work your way through. Next, create height by teasing the top of your head lightly. Pull hair into a low ponytail. Loosely braid hair and twist it to form a bun, then secure with bobby pins.none
If you liked Angelina Jolie’s messy updo at the 09 SAG awards, then it’s your lucky day cause David Babaii has shared his tips for re-creating your very own version.
Randomly curl hair. To ensure volume, spray David Babaii for WildAid Volcanic Ash Root Amplifier. To create height, slightly back comb sections of hair and smooth out with a brush. Then create a low bun at the nape of the neck by gathering sections of curls, secure with bobby pins. Spray with David Babaii for WildAid Mise En Plis Extra Hold Styling Spray to finish the look.none
Kate Winslet got her makeup done by Mrs. McDreamy herself, Jillian Dempsey. Her makeup was fab, she looked flawless.
Makeup artist Mary Burton wanted to create a 60′s look for Angelina for the SAG Awards. And once again, she chose to focus on the eyes.
