Makeup artist Monika Blunder was inspired by the spring 2012 fashion shows where the makeup was fresh but still very glamorous. Since Dianna’s red Giles dress was so “va va voom,” Monika focused on the lips to be the stand out feature.

Step by Step How-To
Monika kept Dianna’s skin simple and fresh with a bit of L’oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Makeup in Light Ivory to give skin a light glow. Since the focus was kept on her lips, only a small amount of L’oréal Paris Magic Smooth Soufflé Blush in Celestial (Pink) was applied to the apples of cheeks.

The bold red lip stole the show; Monika applied L’oréal Paris Infallible Le Rouge in Bold Bordeaux for lasting shine and pigment.

The eyes were highlighted with a hint of L’oréal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Iced Latte with Vaseline applied over it to create added shine. The L’oréal Paris Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner in Black was lightly applied around the rim of the eye and Monika applied several coats of L’oréal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara in Black to complete the look.

Frederic Fekkai Stylist Adir Abergel went for a simple and chic up-do that compliments the beautiful and intricate texture of the dress.

He began by applying Fekkai COIFF™ Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel on the roots and rough dried the hair with his hands. Next, he braided the hair, applying a small amount of Brilliant Glossing Cream to give it texture and shine. Once the hair was dry, Adir took the braids apart, raked the hair with his hands, and created a deep sweeping part angled towards the back of the head. Adir gathered the hair in the back, creating sections of little twists and ultimately pinning them together. He secured the look with Fekkai COIFF™ Sheer Hold Hairspray.
