Exactly How to Get the Best Beauty Looks from the 2018 CFDA Awards
KIM KARDASHIAN WEST'S TEXTURED PONYTAIL
Hairstylist Chris Appleton gave the star, who was honored with the first-ever CFDA Influencer Award, a sky-high ponytail. First, he enhanced her natural texture with Color Wow's Banned Correct & Perfect Mousse, then he created loose, defined waves with the GHD Curve Classic Curl Iron. A touch of the Color Wow Pop & Lock Gloss Treatment from Kim's mid-lengths to ends gave her hair a healthy shine.
ISSA RAE'S SPARKLY EYES
Makeup artist Joanna Simkin pulled inspiration from Diana Ross when creating the CFDA Fashion Award host's scintillating lids. After using the deep brown shades in Covergirl's truNaked Chocoholic Scented Eyeshadow Palette, she packed on a loose silver glitter all over "to give her eyes a little sparkle."
GIGI HADID'S BOLD LIPS
To punctuate the supermodel's colorful Versace ensemble, makeup artist Erin Parsons chose an equally vivid lip. She applied the Maybelline New York Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in Heroine as a "modern take on a classic look."
LUPITA NYONG'O'S GILDED LIPS
If anyone can pull off a metallic gold lip, it's this beauty chameleon. The actress' makeup artist Nick Barose wanted her look to "feel vampy and opulent” to complement her Versace dress. To create her liquid gold lip, he lined hers with the Lancôme Le Lipstique in Sheer Chocolate then topped it with Lancôme's L'Absolu Lacquer Gloss in Vertige. As for the hint of shimmer, Barose layered the same metallic bronze hue he used on Lupita's lids (from Lancôme's Color Design 5 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Kissed By Gold) into the center of her lips.
ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY'S UNDONE BUN
ASHLEY GRAHAM'S VOLUMINOUS WAVES
Hairstylist Justine Marjan opted for a “polished” style that would complement the “simple, chic design of her dress." She first prepped the model's damp hair with TRESemme's Tres Two Extra Hold Mousse and Repair & Protect 7 Pre-Styling Spray, then blow dried her hair with a GHD Air Hairdryer. Next, she created huge, large, bouncy waves using GHD's Curve Soft Curl Iron and brushed them through for a relaxed finish.
