Did you watch the Oscars Sunday night, and think "Wow I wish i could look like that!" Well... wish not more! Here at the Green Spa and Wellness center we have dissected the trends and recreated the looks of the best actresses for you! The stars of the big screen were rocking some seriously chic and sophisticated make-up looks at the Oscars with classic Hollywood glamour being the favourite trend. I recreated the looks of Jennifer Lawrence and Zoe Saldana. Both sexy and sophisticated with concentration mostly on the eyes and skin and neutral colors for the lips and cheeks. Using Jane Iredale make-up here's how these edgy looks came together. 


Kristal: Jennifer Lawrence:


To start I used absence facial primer, Warm Sienna liquid minerals foundations and Radiant Pure Pressed Powder to give the face a clean matte finish. Contour and highlighting: I used Mink Pure Pressed Powder to contour the cheeks and forehead and used Moon Glow to give her cheeks the flawless glow. Brows: Her brows were filled in using our Brunette Bitty Brow Kit. Eyes: To start I primed her eyes with platinum primer, i used Shell Eyeshadow for her lid and Silver Lining Dark, for the crease. To finish i used Black Liquid Eyeliner and Black Ice Mascara, Tawny Blush and Pearl Finishing Powder to the whole face. Lips: Nude Lipliner, Nude Lipstick and Cotton Candy Gloss to give it a shine. 

Shantay: Zoe Saldana


To start i used Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener. I mixed Coffee and Autumn Liquid Minerals to get the perfect color for her, followed by Autumn Pure Pressed Powder. Contour and Highlighting: i used Mink to contour the cheeks & Ivory to highlight her cheek bones and forehead, finishing with Moon Glow to give her cheeks the flawless glow. Brows: using Brunette Bitty Brow Kit. Eyes: First, I applied the Platinum Eye Primer followed by Platinum Eye Shadow on her lids and Crushed Ice Eyeshadow in the crease. To finish i used Basic Black EyelinerBlack Ice Mascara.  I used Cinnamon Blush to give the cheeks a natural color. Lips: Nude Lipliner and Nude Lipstick for a natural look to really allow the concentration to raise to her dramatic eyes.

If you would like to sample a recreated Oscar look, call and reserve your space.  I am offering Complimentary Make-up refreshers now thru the end of March.  

Beautifully Yours,

Is it just me or did everyone notice the newest nail trends truly rocked the Grammy red carpet this year?  Check out the rocks that Jennifer Lopez showed off & I’m not talking about her rings.  She truly glammed out her look with crystal embellishments on top of pointy shaped nails.  Our nail specialists can re-create this look with the Marble polish from Spa Ritual which is a frosted white shimmer with white glass flecks (pictured below) adorned with gold and clear crystals.

I also love the color of Katy Perry’s nails next to the beautiful green gown.  This to me is the perfect color combination for a Spring Nail look.  Check out the light rose LCN Gel Manicure shade of light rose which is amazing!  Another red carpet look that truly stands out is the staple red lips and nails that Beyonce and Rihanna embraced on Grammy night.  Jane Iredale’s Passion Lip Stain is identical to Beyonce’s lip look… which is also a fab look for Valentine’s Day!

We just love these great Red Carpet Looks from the Grammy Awards 2013!

Taylor Swift rocked her smokey eyes with natural toned glossy lips.  This look was simple yet edgy enough for the Grammy Red Caret!  We re-created this look using Jane Iredale’s Smokey Quartz Mistikhol Eyeliner & Highlighter accompanied by the Spa Ritual Vegan Lip Gloss in Clarity.

Katie Perry embrassed her fun colorful gown with a more dramatic earth toned eyeshadow and glowing bronzer.  Try this look with our favorite MoonGlow Bronzer and Brown Sugar Eyeshadow.  These colors from Jane Iredale have just enough sparkle to shine like you are on the red carpet without going over the edge.

We just loved Rihanna’s perfect eyebrow shaping and eyelash extensions.  These enhancements brought out her natural beauty without needing too much additional make-up.  The red lip stain and red nails really gave her a stand out look without going too far.  Our team recommends Permanent Eyelash Extensions and Eyebrow Threading for an every day elegance.  If you want to top off your natural look with an edge, try our Jane Iredale Lip Stain in Passion.

You don’t have to be a celebrity to shine like a star…. come to the Green Spa where we can help re-create your favorite celebrity red carpet looks.  Reserve your complimentary Red Carpet Make-up Consultation today!
