The Best Hair and Makeup of the Night
Chanel celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee used Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Coromandel ($34 at chanel.com)-a creme texture orange-red hue - for Jessica Pare’s poppy statement mouth. "I didn't want to use a matte shades as I was trying to avoid any product that would make the look retro as opposed to modern,” she told us. After prepping her skin with a moisturizing serum, Lee used a lightweight foundation with SPF to create a flawless base. Right before she walked out the door, the look was finished by adding a tiny amount of Cle de Peau Translucent Powder ($105 at neimanmarcus.com) “to the top off the hairline, tip of the nose and chin to diffuse the light.”

Using Hourglass products, Scali prepped Hendrick’s skin with a penetrating primer serum and Illusion Tinted Moisturizer ($55 at sephora.com), leaving her porcelain skin clean and flawless.

"To add extra radiance, I highlighted her brow and cheekbones with creme cheek tint," Harris told us. She finished off with a swipe of shiny gloss over a matte lip tint.

Celebrity hairstylist David Babaii used ITampLY's Pure Water Drops Serum and Pure Texture ($31 italyhairfashion.com for locations) to create Nicole Kidman’s sleek, polished look.
