As usual, Julie Bowen just looked pretty on the red carpet. Her smoky eye was just enough, not over the top, not every day… Her hair was simple but just textured enough to look modern. I thought she looked great!
Makeup artist, Heather Currie created Julie’s glowy skin and smoky eye while her hair was styled by Jill Crosby.
• Heather started by prepping Julie’s skin with Colorescience Skin Bronzing Face Primer SPF 20 to add a subtle bronzed glow
• Applied Colorescience Sheer Crème Foundation using a damp makeup sponge—applying with a damp sponge thins the formula some so it goes on nice and sheer
• She set the foundation with a pressed mineral powder and then applied a shimmer bronzer on the cheek bones and areas where the sun naturally kisses skin, completing her complexion with a pink powder blush, focusing on the apples of her cheeks
• For the smoky eye she started by blending Colorescience Loose Mineral Eye Colore in Black Matte and Smoke Matte starting at the lash line and smudging with a flat eye shadow brush up through the crease area to build the eye
• Next she filled in the lid with a blend of Colorescience Loose Mineral Eye Colore in Silver Shimmer and a teal shadow with a round shadow brush to create a gun metal look, followed by a white shimmer shadow on the brow bone and the inner corner of the eye
• After applying concealer under the eye, she completed the look with Colorescience Mascara and lined the bottom of the eye with a blend of the silver and teal shadows
• Since the focus was on the eyes, Heather went with a pale lip—she applied a nude lip liner all over the lip to give it a nude look and help the lip color last longer, completing it with pink gloss
1. Starting with wet hair, Jill worked in a quarter-sized amount of Wella Professionals Enrich Straight Leave In Cream focusing on the ends to infuse moisture and “bring hair back to life.”
2. Then rake through three pumps of Wella Professionals Velvet Amplifier to prime the hair, leaving it a smooth texture, before blow drying with a large round brush. While blow drying, focus on adding volume and lifting the roots.
3. Once dry, she then sprayed Wella Professionals Thermal Image Heat Protection Spray throughout and Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray at the roots for added lift and matte finish to achieve the deconstructed look.
4. Using a flatiron, she straightened pieces of the hair at her fringe and underneath the length of her hair near the nape of her neck. The interior of the hair was then back combed for added volume. Fringe is side-swept and secured in the front.
5. Hair was separated into two sections and then pulled toward the middle of the back of her head into a knotted chignon, then secured into place with pins hidden underneath the knot.
6. The look was finished with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray sprayed throughout to set the style.
