Carey Mulligan Oscars 2010

Carey Mulligan Oscars 2010: The Makeup

Makeup artist Georgie Eisdell prepped Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan for the big Oscar night.

How to get Carey Mulligan’s Oscars 2010 makeup look by makeup artist Georgie Eisdell:

“This was Carey’s first Oscars so I wanted to make sure she looked age appropriate but still embrace the glamour of the night. Carey’s dress was edgy and elegant so I wanted to keep her makeup looking fresh and youthful. I wanted to enhance the natural beauty of her skin so I used La Mer foundation lightly powdered with La Mer’s translucent powder over that. For her eyes, I used Chanel soft beige and pink shadows from their spice palette. I used MAC’s black track eye liner followed by YSL’s Faux Cils mascara in black. To finish off her eyes I sharpened up her eyebrows with Laura Mercier’s soft blonde brow powder duo. For her cheeks, I wanted to give them a pinched cheek look with Dior’s glowing color powder blush in fruit de la passion. For the finishing touch on her skin, I used Bobbi Brown bronzing powder in medium. And finally on her lips I used Dior addict lip polish 004. I used La Mer body creme on the way out the door to give her body the same glow.”

Interview With Tayaba Zehra Jafri The Lead Makeup Artist For Laura Mercier

I met Tayaba Zehra Jafri the lead makeup artist for Laura Mercier backstage at the Pamella Roland Spring 2010 during New York Fashion Week last month. Tayaba was kind enough to give us a sneak peek to the makeup look and to some of her Laura Mercier must-have products she used on models at the Pamella Roland show.

The Show: Pamella Roland Spring 2010 Collection.
The Trend: A luxurious spring time look that is eye focused. There is definitely a strong amount  of smoky eye, but it is a smoldering smoke. A reminiscent of the cat eye bit a little softer.
The Inspiration: The luxury glam makeup of the 50’s and 60’s and the paintings of Georgia Totto O’Keeffe.

Tayaba touch up the lids with a highlight of a special product called the VIP to give a little texture. A little bit of corner lashes are added to lift up the eyes. And as the look is eye focused Tayaba kept the cheeks and lips subdued. On cheeks she used Second Skin Cheek Colour in Barely Pink by Laura Mercier. To highlight the cheeks she used Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer by Laura Mercier. To add intensity inside the lashes Tayaba applied Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Liner with a brush. On the lips: HydraTint SPF 15 by Laura Mercier was applied.

“FlashForward” Star Christine Woods Interviews With Marta Walsh

Today marks the premier of much anticipated ABC series: FlashForward. Now, I’ve watched the trailer and the script looks very captivating. The FlashForward story line is about what happens when everyone on Earth blacks out, only to awake and be able to foresee the future. The show was created by David S. Goyer who also wrote the screenplays for Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Flash.

I’m excited to bring to you an interview with star of FlashForward, Christine Woods. Christine plays the role of Janis Hawk FBI Agent at the Los Angeles Field Office with superior analysis abilities. Her character is a bit of a tomboy with a quick wit, and was trained at the Academy with fellow agent Demetri Noh (played by actor John Cho).

In this interview Christine Woods talks to Marta Walsh about her love for acting. What attracted her to the role of Janis Hawk in the new ABC series FalshForward. Her meeting with actor Joseph Fiennes on the set. reveals what’s in her makeup bag. What some people may not know about Christine and future plans.

Marta Walsh: How did you decide on a career in acting, and what were some of your first breaks as an actress?
Christine Woods: I was a singer and a dancer my whole life. I was a musical theatre major in college. I moved out to LA about 4 and half years ago and started auditioning every day. I did couple of guest stars here and there. This is honestly my first big break.

Watch ABC’s FlashForward trailer here:

MW: What attracted you to Janis Hawk character on the new ABC series Flash Forward? How much of Janis’ personality is similar or different to yours?
CW: I read the script, it was pretty small role. I was more taken by the script and story as a whole, and of course by the creator, David S. Goyer. David is absolutely brilliant and I love his work. I’m also very interested in strong female characters. Janis Hawk is intelligent and smart. She is a career woman. She is in a job that is predominantly male. I’m always fascinated with women who can do that. It’s atypical for a woman to rise to top of the FBI world.
