Makeup artist Sonia Lee shares with Talking Makeup and Marta Walsh how she prepped Emma Roberts’ skin to make her look more radiant than ever for her premiere of “Homework” at 2011 Sundance, last weekend.

Award-Winning Hair Style

Iconic hairstylist Oribe recommends: “To add a little shine and sparkle into any Oscars look, I recommend 24K Gold Pomade. It’s a nice unexpected element that will transform your hair into something extraordinary. 24K is rich in ingredients that impart a beautiful sheen to the hair and can be used with a light hand to add glamour to a chignon, bun or any red carpet-worthy style.”

Award-Winning Hair Color

Celebrity Haircolorist Lorri Goddard-Clark recommends: “Before coloring your hair for the big day, make sure you have had your hair freshly cut – this allows your highlights to look like the sun kissed your hair. Always mark your favorite part (side, middle, center, etc.) before highlighting and when applying the color, keep highlights finer near your scalp and heavier at the ends for a more natural appearance. This is sure to keep color bright and vibrant!”

“For Toni Collette I combined warm healthy skin with a bronze metallic smoky eye and nude glossy lip” according to Gita.

To create the perfect canvas for a flawless radiant complexion, Gita prepped Toni’s skin with AMOREPACIFIC Moisture Bound Refreshing Hydra Gel. The whole look was set with AMOREPACIFIC Moisture Bound Skin Energy Spray for a final touch of hydration and staying power. 

 ”I added a layer of La Mer’s The Body Crème to keep her skin looking glowing and radiant. To keep her face looking flawless I used The Radiant Concealer SPF 25 under her eyes and on any redness. I prepped her lips with the amazing La Mer Lip Balm to keep them full and hydrated all night long.” added Gita.
