From Tip-to-Toe: Jillian Dempsey Gave Kristen Stewart Metallic Blue Eyes for Nickelodeon’s KCA 2012!

Jillian Dempsey Gave Kristen Stewart Metallic Blue Eyes for Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards!

Kristen Stewartis one of the hottest young ladies in Hollywood -- especially when it comes to her red carpet look. Just this past Saturday, the 21-year-old "Snow White and the Huntsman" star got ready for her first time on the orange carpet when she stepped out for Nickelodeon's 25th anniversary of the Kids' Choice Awards! Rocking a textured ponytail and a bold blue ensemble, Kristen was the epitome of effortless glam. Makeup artist Jillian Dempsey has a long history of working with Kristen and for this particular event she was inspired by the beautiful, deep blue, lace Stella McCartney dress that she wore for the ceremony. Jillian achieve Kristen's dramatic eye by layering multiple shadow hues, some of them metallic, to play up the eye. She also gave her cheeks a rosy flush and accentuated her cheekbones with a light contour powder.

Kristen Stewart’s CHANEL Nails for Nickelodeon’s KCA 2012!

The Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards is probably the most "colorful" award show throughout the entire year! From the orange carpet, to the vibrant backdrops, green slime and "spring fever" wardrobe on all of the celebrities -- it's bursting with energy. Kristen Stewart made her debut this year -- and did it right. The 21-year-old "Snow White and the Huntsman" actress hit the citrus rug wearing a bright blue lace Stella McCartney dress with matching Barbara Bui pumps, but she switched it up when it came to her nails. Manicurist Ashlie Johnson -- and Kristen's go-to-gal -- has been making K.Stew's nails pretty for a long time and last night she gave them a chic finish with a shimmery red. Kristen accepted her orange blimp for "Favorite Movie Actress" wearing CHANEL Le Vernis Nail Color in the gorgeous "Rouge Carat". It's pretty much a silky red with tones of pink -- and it's stunning.

Kristen Stewart’s Hairstylist Tells You How To Get Her Hot “TODAY Show” ‘Do!

It's no secret -- any time KRISTEN STEWART makes a public appearance, her style is critiqued from head-to-toe. How was her hair? What did you think of her make-up? Do you love her outfit? Would you wear these shoes? When it comes to her her famous auburn-brown mane, Kristen normally wears her long tresses in a ponytail or out in sexy "bed-head" waves -- although every once in awhile she'll totally switch things up and rock a cool intricate creation. When the 21-year-old actress appeared on NBC's "TODAY" last Monday to promote her new film "Snow White and the Huntsman" -- the responses towards her look were practically unanimous. "She looked better than ever!" For a morning appearance? That's golden. One of the things on-lookers couldn't stop talking about was Kristen's interesting multi-tucked half-up/half-down hairstyle. Partly because it's not a style we're use to seeing on her -- and mostly because it was just ridiculously cool. Speaking for myself, this was one of my favorite looks on her ever! So... do you want to learn how to do it?

Get Michelle Williams’ Winning Golden Globes Look!

Michelle Williams dazzled on the red carpet in Jason Wu for the 2012 Golden Globe Awards last night, and continued to shine when she hit the stage during the show to accept her award for "Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical" for her role as Marilyn Monroe in "My Week With Marilyn". Chanel make-up artist Angela Levin gave Michelle a gorgeous dewy look -- using products from CHANEL Beauté -- that was inspired by her classic beauty. Interested in copying Michelle's lovely look? Here's how! Angela started the makeup application with cleaning the skin with CHANEL Lotion Douceur Gentle Hydrating Toner using a sponge instead of cotton.  She then applied a thin layer of CHANEL Ultra Correction Lift Intensive Lifting Concentrate on her face, Angels Makeup Collagen Treatment under her eyes, and placed CHANEL Sublimage La Creme Texture Supreme on her cheeks and neck. Angela applied CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige-Pastel on the face and eye lids, as a base.  On the eyes, she used the grey shadow shades from the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Smoky Eyes to create a light smoky effect on the upper lid, then adding CHANEL Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Black Shimmer to the top lash.

Jessica Biel stunned on the red carpet for the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards, and in addition to her gorgeous Elie Saab gown and cascading tendrils, she was giving some really good face-time thanks to make-up artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua. Kara got Jessica ready for the big night using some spectacular products from CHANEL Beauté! To achieve her look she stuck to a light palette of colors after becoming inspired by the coloring of Jessica's gown. "I wanted to keep it simple and bright in the corals and neutral tones," said Bua. Here's how she did it: “I started Jessica’s look by applying CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige-Sable to her face, setting it with CHANEL Natural Finish Pressed Powder in Natural, and adding CHANEL Powder Blush in In Love to the cheeks for a healthy glow. I wanted to focus on popping the eyes with brown and taupe shades…I defined the eyes with the deep warm brown and taupe colors from the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Prelude, and applied the shimmery gold/champagne shades as highlights on the lid.

How to Get Kristen Stewart’s “Breaking Dawn” UK Premiere Beauty Look — Straight from Her Make-Up Artist!

All eyes were on Kristen Stewart at the London premiere of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" on November 16th when the 21-year-old actress arrived on the white carpet at Westfield Stratford City in a gorgeous black sequin and bead-embellished gown by Roberto Cavalli. Taking a closer look, it became obvious that her make-up was just as glam as her dress! In no time at all, Kristen fans -- and beauty enthusiast alike -- began seeking out the colors and tips on how to achieve her dramatic metallic smokey eye. London based make-up artist Emma Kotch, the woman responsible for getting Kristen ready-carpet-ready, was kind enough to share the secrets behind Kristen's vampy look at the premiere with The Fashion Court! First things first -- to create a base Emma covered blemishes evenly using Laura Mercier's fantastic ‘Secret Camouflage’ concealer in “SC-2″ ($28) before applying Dior's 'Skinflash Radiance' booster pen ($37 ea.) in both "Roseglow 001" and "Candle Light 002". This amazing tool from Dior is a fully covering lightweight concealer that takes only one click and stroke to immediately diminish the dark shadows beneath the eyes.

Pumped Up Ponytails!

It's common knowledge that most of the everyday hair trends we use begin on the runway. Whether it's the look-like-you-have-dirty-hair-but-not-actually-be-dirty style; slick pin straight hair with a center pair, and the most recent craze over the "top knot" --  the models on the catwalk always inspire.

Last month during Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week we saw lots of interesting looks and some so-so styles, but Donna Karan took a common "old" favorite and made it "new" and "trendy" all over again.

The models walking in the Donna Karan Collection Spring/Summer 2012 runway presentation strut down the runway wearing tribal print fabric, dark lips, lots of attitude -- and swinging blunt-end ponytails fastened with long cuff bands to play off the exotic essence of the show!

Get Kristen Stewart’s Mulberry look!

Last month Kristen Stewart surprised London Fashion Week attendees when she arrived for the Mulberry spring/summer 2012 runway show and took a front-row seat next to supermodel Kate Moss. I think the real shocker wasn't the fact that she was there, but that she looked so different from how we're use to seeing her.

Not only was the 21-year-old actress, known for her role as Bella Swan in the "Twilight" franchise, wearing a girly bohemian-esque blue dress -- she was also sporting a long, straight, and full head of black hair! Kristen recently changed the color and was given the extension treatment for her role as Snow White in "Snow White and the Huntsman" which is currently shooting in London.

Long days of rehearsal and shooting can take a lot out of an actor, but make-up artist Emma Kotch helped Kristen get a bright eyed, fresh-faced look for the morning fashion show. I can't tell you how you can get Kristen's darn-near flawless skin, but if you're interested in getting some of her Fashion Week beauty tips - look no further!

Sophia Bush Rocks Khaki Nails at New York Fashion Week

If New York Fashion Week is going on, you can rest yourself assured that you'll see the beautiful "One Tree Hill" actress Sophia Bush in attendance. This lady is so passionate and dedicated to her love of fashion that she attended a few Spring/Summer 2012 runway shows shows then headed back to Wilmington, North Carolina -- where she continued work on the final season of OTH -- before flying back to New York to enjoy the fashion frenzy.

Her first stop upon her return was Rebecca Minkoff's show where Soph was spotted wearing three of my favorite things -- a bright red blazer, Dannijo jewelry, and khaki nail polish!

Khaki nail polishes are still so hot for your nails as we head into the fall season. Sophia stayed on trend wearing "San-Tan-tonio" by OPI, a brilliant tan shade that complimented Sophia's freshly sun-kissed skin and went with literally every single thing she wore for the rest of the week (see below). A polish that will work with any look is a must for every gal!
