Get The Look: Kristen Bell

Star of “You Again,” Kristen Bell, has never looked better. Her strands are the perfect shade of blonde (not that over-bleached, bottle blonde look), her face is made-up but still youthful and this hair style gives her red carpet romanticism.

Celebrity Makeup Artist Mai Quynh is responsible for the face. Here are the deets:

INSPIRATION: “Kristen was wearing a stunning yellow and white laced dress by Valentino, so I wanted to give her bold smoky eyes and subtle nude lips to compliment it.”

Face: “I started by applying mark See Things Clearly Brightening Moisturizer to her face, followed by mark Face Xpert Flawless Touch Makeup in Natural with the mark Foundation Brush for a gorgeous smooth finish. To even out any flaws and create a completely even canvas, I applied mark Good Riddance Hook Up Concealer in Light/Medium around her nose and under her eyes. I set her foundation with mark Powder Buff Natural Skin Foundation in Natural. After the powder had set the foundation, I dusted mark Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder in Pro Golden to her cheeks, chin and forehead, using the mark Blush Brush. For a natural looking blush, I dusted mark Good Glowing Custom Pick Powder Blush in After Glo using the mark Angled Contour Face Brush to her cheeks.”

Eyes: “To create Kristen’s smoky eye, I used several shades from the mark On The Dot Eye Color Compact. Using the mark Hook Up Eyeshadow Brush, I applied the cream colored shade to her inner eyelid for a highlighting effect and swept the bronze shade to the middle of her eyelid, blending outwards with the same brush. Next, I applied the dark brown shade to the outer corners of her eyes and blended into the crease and upwards towards the brow bone using the mark Hook Up Angled Eyeshadow Brush. I then smudged the same dark brown color underneath and along her lower lashes using the mark Flat Eyeliner Brush. I finished off the look with two coats of mark Scanda-Lash Hook Up Mascara in Blacklash.”

Lips: “To keep Kristen’s lips looking neutral and dewy, I used mark Lipclick Full Color Lipstick in Bare Hug.”

HAIR
Frédéric Fekkai’s Ange Grmoyles tended to the tresses.

INSPIRATION: An imperfect yet romantic style.

GET THE LOOK: Ange started by spraying Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Volume™ Lifting Hairspray to the roots of the hair and rough dried it with her fingers. She then wrapped sections of hair around a one inch curling iron, leaving the ends straight. Next Ange applied the Fekkai Au Naturel Dry Shampoo to the crown of her head and teased the hair before pinning the half up-do in place. To shape the face, Ange left her bangs creating a romantic style. To secure the look, she then applied Fekkai Coiff™ Sheer Hold Hairspray for all night hold.
