Beauty By The Masters
featuring the winners of The Hollywood Beauty Awards
by Michele Elyzabeth
LATF created the first Hollywood Beauty Awards to salute the artists who create the looks of our favorite celebrities. Let’s face it, without hair and makeup it would be a very different story and it may not be a pretty picture in some cases.
LATF wanted to share with you the magic that our winners in the categories of hair, makeup and photography are capable of producing.
We set up a photo session with photographer and winner of the first Hollywood Beauty Awards, Emmanuelle Choussy, to shoot two makeovers.
Team 1: Hairstylist Marcia Hamilton and makeup artist Autumn Moultrie worked on our model Tessa.
Team 2: Hairstylist Lea Journo and Dior’s makeup artist Thuy Pham transformed actress and host of VH-1’s “Dating Naked,” Amy Paffrath.
Each team had three hours to complete the task, and here are the results.
Lea used Lea Journo hair products to create the tight locks. She wrapped the hair around a wooden kitchen spoon and her flat iron. To obtain big hair, she used Lea Journo’s Brilliant Sea Silk Mousse: a volumizing foam that adds luxurious body and shine to your curls. She finished with ‘Voilà’ Finishing Spray, a medium-hold hair spray that adds brilliance and shine while providing flexible hold.
As for Thuy, she naturally chose Dior makeup from the new shades of their Spring collection and added single eye lashes.
Tessa came with shoulder length hair. Marcia decided that she would add length to it. After a Brazilian Blow out, which she whipped in no time with her little Harry Josh 2000 and her Ibiza round brush, she added extensions that snapped onto Tessa’s hair. Autumn, decided on Anastasia Brows, and Tom Ford and Kevyn Aucoin for makeup.
See for yourselves.
