Celebrity Makeup Artist Vanessa Scali aimed to create a look that complemented Christina’s old Hollywood-esque Christian Siriano gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. Of the look, Vanessa said, “I was inspired by the soft, feminine look of the dress and its cool, shimmery neutral color against her skin. I kept her face soft and romantic, but added contrast and strength with a bold lip color.”
Here’s Christina’s makeup breakdown from Vanessa Scali’s team:
Vanessa began by using Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum. She loves this primer serum as it delivers penetrating moisture and leaves the skin feeling beautiful and clean. She then applied Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Shell – the formula is effortless to apply and made her skin look natural and flawless. Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer was applied wherever necessary. Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain in Flush was applied to the apples of the cheeks blending outward to the cheekbones.
Vanessa gave Christina a bold, strong lip with Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon.
For definition and intensity, she lined her eyes with Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Liner in Ebony at the base of the lashes and on the inside top rim of the eye. Using the lighter shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy, she swept the color from the lash line to the eye brow. Then, she used a touch of the deeper shade blending it well, from the lash line to just above the crease and swept past the natural outer corner to exaggerate and elongate the eye. This color continues very subtly under the bottom lashes. She finished the eyes with lush, flirty lashes – Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara was used all over the lashes and Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer concentrated on the center of the lashes.
John Frieda Celebrity Hairstylist Gregory Russell was also inspired by the Old Hollywood glamour of Christina’s look. Here’s how he created her va-va-voom hairstyle:
On dry hair, apply Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse to 1″ sections until all of the hair has been covered. This is to build texture while taming frizz. Brush hair using a Mason Pearson flat brush to dry out the mousse and create volume. Take hair in 1″ sections, spray with Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hair Spray and wrap around a 1″ barrel curling iron. Pin each curl and let them set for 45 minutes. Brush out each curl and then backcomb the underneath to add extra fullness and shape.
Use a dime size amount of Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Crème through the bangs to create perfect definition and added shine. To finish, mist a thin coat of hairspray in an even, all-around motion, to set the look.
