The Look: Simply Gorgeous

Who: Model, Emily Ratajkowski, needed a makeup look that worked for not one, but two stunning outfits on Sunday night so she turned to celebrity make-up artist and Rimmel London Makeup-Artist Ambassador, Jo Baker.

How to Get the Look: 

· For Emily’s eyes Jo really put the emphasis on her lashes. She used three coats of Rimmel London 24HR Supercurler Mascara which not only lengthened from root to tip but the jet black formula set the lashes at a beautiful and upright curl.

· Jo kept Emily’s lip natural and unlined. She used Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in Summer Angel, the perfect easy nude that kept her pout hydrated and looking perfect all night long!

· Emily has beautiful bushy eyebrows so Jo wanted to keep them natural and undone yet have them stay in place. She combed them through using Rimmel London Brow This Way Styling Gel in Dark Brown.

Where to Find Them: Rimmel London products are available at chain drug stores and mass retailers nationwide. Visit http://www.RimmelLondon.com for store locations and to try the newest products with Rimmel London’s exclusive Virtual Makeup Tool.

Tori Kelly 2016 Grammy Awards

TORI KELLY’S LOOK: A modern interpretation of old Hollywood style

INSPIRATION: Celebrity hairstylist Nikki Providence was inspired by Tori Kelly’s one shoulder green dress.  “I wanted to let her natural texture shine through a classic pincurl set,” she said.

How To Get The Look:

Nikki started with clean wet hair, and prepped the roots with John Frieda Frizz Ease® Curl Reviver Mousse and sprayed 12 sprays of the John Frieda Frizz Ease® Go Curlier™ Heat-Activated Spray throughout the hair. Then she used a wide-tooth comb to shape the front and sides into sculpted waves, clipping each section into position.She twisted the remainder of the hair in 2-inch sections and dried her with a diffuser before taking the clips out. Nikki used her hands to smooth and sculpt the final shape, applying a thin coat of John Frieda Frizz Ease® Secret Weapon® Touch-Up Crème on her hands to make sure her fingers glided over the hair for a final touch of smoothness.Then she used a 3/4 inch curling iron to touch up any areas that needed extra hold or curl.She finished off the look with John Frieda Frizz Ease® KeraFLEX™ Flexible Hold Hairspray.
