After I taped E! News on Tuesday (see MY segment here) I rushed home to meet the very cool team from vênsette, the beauty-on-call service on speed dial by big name models, celebs, photoshoots (and also private clients...the you's and me's of the world!!!) Those of you that know me well know that i have no patience for a 12-step beauty routine. i get the most compliments on "fourth day hair" - so i usually roll with that. ok- I have fake eyelashes (and proud of them...it's an amazing slash horrible addiction that just makes you feel so good- and actually cuts your beauty routine in half!) but i'm a hair and make-up minimalist so i was super excited to team up with vensette- and put them to the challenge of recreating- on me- two of my favorite, super glam golden globe beauty looks.
THERE'S a huge RED CARPET movement towards very casual looks RIGHT NOW. PERSONALLY, I THINK nothing IS COOLER than a fancy dress without an evening updo. The cool factor of "i don't care" hair is trending and no one did it better than emma stone and emily blunt.
i can watch a million the youtube step-by-step videos but still somehow I still don't do my own hair very well. i own "the wand", curling irons, flat irons, curlers...but none of these are any good if you can't master the right way to use them! so, i'm always in awe of super talented hair and make-up artists. IN less than 45 minutes, Melissa transformed mE into jessica chastain's smoking evening look and THEN FLIPPED MY LOOK 180 to mirror emily blunt's cool-girl, JUST-BACK-FROM-VACAY VIBE. Truly impressive. MELISSA IS DEFINITELY going in my little black book of beauty secrets.
