Eizabeth Banks at The Hunger Games premier – PART 2!Posted 27/05/2012
One day off for myself but not Elizabeth and cast , they nipped down the red carpet for the Paris Premier then we were reunited in Berlin where Elizabeth chose this beauty of a dress by Elli Saab
We went for these beautiful glossy waves, taking the iconic Grace Kelly as inspiration, old Hollywood glamour with a little twist, love it! Having even less time to do this than London, we amazed ourselves and managed to turn the whole look around in 40 minutes – a personal record!
For this look the first thing to do is pop in your parting in the desired place for your face shape, then take 2 inch sections and barrel curl with your tongs, this is where Were Wam’s revolving curling tongs really come into their own, as all the work is done for you.
Another little tip for this is to alternate the curls going under and over, as when this is brushed out it gives a fantastic wave. As before, clip each curl and allow to cool. Once fixed, brush through into the desired shape with something like a mason and person brush, the soft bristles really help enhance the wave and shin , letting the waves just fall perfectly!
Do a light misting with Aveda’s non aerosol, Brilliant spray to bring a lovely gloss to the waves – an essential in my makeup bag, a true wonder product!) . Then lock the look down with Hairspray.
Now for the make-up which we did in ten minutes flat! A quick base was whizzed on, using Chanel’s Vital Lumiere, it does so many things in one hit, giving porcelain coverage and luminosity all at once!
Eyebrows were strengthened by defining the brows with a mink brow pencil and brushed beautifully into place, a little quirk l always loved about Grace’s eyebrows, never a hair out of place! For a light contouring over the eyes, I used a wash of Bare Minerals prime time primer shadow in iced chocolate, this is a genius find as it is once again baddie free and so quick and easy to use and really long lasting – it was my saviour that day and really made Elizabeth’s eye’s pop. Admittedly I had already popped on a couple of individual lashes earlier that morning so skipped that fiddly little job,- not great when you’re on a deadline – but refreshed them with an extra couple of thin layers of mascara. I patted a little bit of Burberrys fresh glow along the cheekbones and to the hairline , I absolutely love this product as it really does what it says and also diffuses any fine lines….
I then finished up with another new little find of mine, Kroma Organic Lip gloss in meringue…Its 100% organic and really lasts , I love this colour and have to admit to it being resident in my bag since finding!
And there we are – Green Carpet ready!
