Marion Cotillard at the 2014 Met Gala

Marion Cotillard turned heads at Monday’s Costume Institute Gala at The Met in New York. The French beauty paired her midnight blue Christian Dior gown with dramatic side-swept hair and luminous makeup by Hourglass. “The dress makes a graphic statement and we complemented it with glowing skin, iridescent eyes and richly pigmented lips,” says makeup artist Christophe Danchaud.

Complexion: Danchaud began by prepping Marion’s skin with Hourglass’ No. 28 Primer Serum. He followed with Veil Fluid Makeup in 1.5 and Hidden® Corrective Concealer in Pearl. He finished with Ambient® Lighting Powder in Dim Light applied all over the face to create a soft-focus effect.

Cheeks: He applied Ambient® Lighting Blush in Radiant Magenta, a golden fuchsia blush, to create a stunning glow.

Eyes: Danchaud used Visionaire Eye Shadow in Exhibition. He began by applying the shimmer lilac shade all over her lids. He then applied the dark mauve shade in the duo close to her lash line and to the outer corner of her eye. He extended the mauve shade to underneath her eyes, close to the lash line. To lighten up his handiwork, he used a gold pigment on the lids. Finally, he applied several coats of Film Noir® Full Spectrum Mascara.

Brows: He defined the brows with Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Dark Brunette.

Lips: Danchaud lined the lips with Panoramic Long Wear Lip Pencil in Raven, a new shade for summer. He followed with a mix of Femme Rouge® Velvet Crème Lipstick in Raven and Muse creating a sensual orange red shade.

 

Flaunt a Feminine Flush Look with Ambient® Lighting Blush

Ambient® Lighting Blush introduces a completely new way to blush, with a soft-focus, seamless finish that is out of this world. We asked makeup artist Moani Lee to brainstorm a few different ways to showcase flushed-faced beauty this spring. For all looks, begin with an application of your Hourglass primer, foundation and concealer.

• Try a modern-day Marie Antoinette look with a melange of romantic pinks. Start with a wash of Dim Infusion all over the lids. Follow with a coat of Film Noir® Full Spectrum Mascara, an application of Radiant Magenta and Luminous Flush on the apples of your cheeks and a swipe of Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Ballet on the lips. Make sure to blend out both blush shades using a circular motion. “It’s a modern and fresh approach to wearing pink,” says Lee. “And one we’ve seen on red carpets lately.”

     

     

 

• For advanced users, it’s possible to combine myriad blush shades to create captivating glamour. First add a soft flush of warmth to the apples of your cheeks, using either Radiant Magenta, Diffused Heat or Luminous Flush. Next, softly contour with a deeper tone, like Mood Exposure. Blend upwards and out towards the temples with a hint of Dim Infusion and finish off with Ethereal Glow as a highlight on the tops of your cheekbones. “The airy, lightweight formula means you can never overdo it,” adds Lee.

• Create a sultry siren look by expertly contouring your cheeks with two shades of Ambient® Lighting Blush.  “Blend Dim Infusion into the soft hollows of the cheek and apply Ethereal Glow as a highlight along the tops of the cheekbones,” says Lee. Finish the look with exaggerated feline eyes achieved with Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner in Ebony and pale pink nude lips care of Femme Nude Lip Stylo in Nude No. 1.

     

 

     

 Ambient® Lighting Blush is designed to be paired with Ambient® Lighting Powder. “Using them together creates a multidimensional luminescence that is unlike any other product,” says Lee. Using the No. 2 Brush, start with a dusting of Ambient® Lighting Powder in Ethereal Light all over the complexion. Using the Ambient® Powder Brush, highlight with Ambient® Lighting Powder in Luminous Light. Switch back to the No. 2 brush and apply Radiant Magenta to the apples of your cheeks. To finish up, apply a light dusting of Ethereal Glow and blend out your handiwork with a circular motion.

New Hourglass Visual Identity – Revealed

To commemorate our 10-year anniversary — we launched at Barneys New York in 2004 — Hourglass has orchestrated a refresh of our visual identity. At the core of the update is a bold new logo conceived by renowned designer and creative director, Marc Atlan.

Hourglass-Logo-New

“Since Hourglass products are so well-designed, the new identity embodies discretion, timelessness and an element of surprise,” says Atlan, whose sophisticated roster of clients has included Comme des Garçons, Maison Martin Margiela, Helmut Lang and Cartier.“There’s a certain boldness about the new logo, which reflects the confidence of the Hourglass woman. And it’s used on packaging in an unexpected yet elegant manner, slightly off-center.”

Atlan is the French-born founder of the LA-based Marc Atlan Design, where he conceptualizes everything from perfume bottles and packaging to retail environments and TV commercials.

Hourglass’s modernized identity will take into effect immediately, as seen on all branded materials, the website and wherever the brand is sold. Ambient® Lighting Blush, our spring release, will be the first of our products bearing the updated insignia. The new logo will transition into the rest of the Hourglass collection over the course of the year.

Amber Heard turned heads at Sunday’s 71st annual Golden Globe Awards. The breathtaking actress, a presenter at the awards ceremony, teamed her midnight blue Atelier Versace dress with a romantic up-do and alluring makeup by Hourglass. “Amber brought some of her own ideas to the mix,” says makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen. “She liked the idea of focusing on sultry chocolate eyes, creamy skin and soft nude lips. I was just bringing out the remarkable geometry and beauty of her face.

Amber Heard

Here’s how to recreate the look:

COMPLEXION: Prime with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, conceal with Hidden® Corrective Concealer in Warm, and follow with Veil Fluid Makeup in Light Beige. “No. 28 hydrates beautifully but it also creates a magical finish,” he says.

    

BROWS: Define the brows with Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette.

EYES: Apply the shell shade from the Vol. 6 Eyeshadow Palette as a base color all over the lids. Follow with the bronze shimmer shade from Visionaire Eyeshadow Duo in Gypsy applied to the crease and under the eyes. Deepen the bronze with the brown shade from Vol. 6 Eyeshadow Palette applied to the outer corner, top and bottom of the lids. Line the eyes with a deep plum pencil. “I also smudged the line with the black shadow from the palette,” he says. Apply a high-shine pearl shadow to the inner corner of the eye. Apply a coat of Film Noir® Full Spectrum Mascara, allow to dry and curl lashes.
  

CHEEKS: Apply the sheer rose shade from Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset to the cheeks, and highlight with the sheer champagne shade from Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Bronze Light. Retrace your steps with Ambient® Lighting Powder in Ethereal Light, an opalescent sheer powder which mimics a moonlit glow.
  

LIPS: Line lips with Trace Lip Liner in Bare and follow with Femme Rouge® Velvet Crème Lipstick in Whisper, a golden pinky beige shimmer. “The look is glamorous but restrained,” adds VanLeeuwen. “She is so extraordinarily beautiful.”

Kerry Washington at the Emmys

All eyes were on Kerry Washington at the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards. The Scandal star, who wore makeup by Hourglass, showcased an ethereal look as pretty as her blush-colored Marchesa gown. “The inspiration came from the delicate dress,” says makeup artist Carola Gonzalez, who combined velvety matte skin, soft plum lids and luminous cheeks for a look that was as pretty as the floral embroideries on Washington’s gown. “Although I like a matte finish, especially for awards shows, I added a radiance to her skin with Hourglass Ambient® Lighting Powder in Radiant Light. It’s the perfect shade for Kerry.”

Hourglass At New York Fashion Week

Hourglass collaborated with Christian Siriano for his spring 2014 runway show in New York. Siriano was inspired by a recent trip to Isla Mujeres on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, and the destination’s exuberant color palette. The new collection features vivid prints, woven raffias, and sculptural organzas all in vibrant hues. “I wanted the collection to be light, feminine and romantic,” says Siriano. “Like the girl left the beach but she had a cocktail party to go to, and threw on a dress, a bright lip, and little highlighter.”

To extend the sultry theme, makeup director Polly Osmond played up luminous skin, pale lids and coral lips. “It’s beachy, breezy and with a pop of color,” says Osmond. “I wanted to create a diffusion of texture, color and light. It’s how your skin would look at a tropical sunset. We used the new Hourglass Ambient® Lighting Palette to create a breathtaking glow—not just on the cheeks but on the eyes, too.” Osmond also demonstrated the multi-purpose nature of No. 28 Primer Serum. “We used it as a hydrating base, on the brows for definition, and as a final stroke on the cheeks to add a divine shine.”

SKIN: Prep skin with No. 28 Primer Serum, infused with botanical oils, and follow with Illusion® Hyaluronic Skin Tint for a luminous complexion. Conceal any dark circles or imperfections with Hidden® Corrective Concealer.

CHEEKS: To create a multi-dimensional glow, apply all three shades from the Ambient® Lighting Palette to the cheeks using a circular motion. Dab No. 28 Primer Serum onto the apples of the cheeks for a hint of tropical sheen.

EYES: Apply Incandescent Light from the Ambient® Lighting Palette all over the lids. Follow with the shimmering Shell shade from Vol. 6 Eyeshadow Palette, applied to the inner corner of eyes. Use the same shade to create a diffused liner along the top and bottom of the lash lines. Finish with a coat of Film Noir® Full Spectrum Mascara.

BROWS: Brush a small amount of No. 28 Primer Serum onto brows to create definition and a little shine.

LIPS: Prep lips earlier with No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil for superior hydration. Apply Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Muse, an orange coral shade, to the lips. Create a diffused pout by softening the outline of the lips with a lip brush.

Hourglass For Christian Siriano

Christian Siriano previewed his first resort collection in New York recently, and Hourglass makeup artist Oz Rodriguez created the accompanying makeup look. Inspired by abstract art, Siriano applied bold stripes of color to his effervescent daywear and even to some of his eveningwear. The beauty look played up flawless skin, polished brows and flushed cheeks. For the vivid lip color, Oz mixed three Hourglass products: Femme Rouge® Velvet Crème Lipstick in Ballet, Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Edition topped off with a lick of Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss in Icon. The resulting shade is a pink so electric it makes you think—of a tropical escape during the winter season. Exactly what the cruise collections call for.

Hourglass At New York Fashion Week

Hourglass created the makeup looks for the La Perla fall 2013 presentation in New York earlier this month. The collection, which featured lace, tulle and silk designs, was inspired by Spain, specifically the embellished livery of bullfighters. “I wanted to capture the sensuality and the strength of the woman wearing this decadent lingerie,” says makeup artist Moani Lee, who focused on elegant brows, radiant skin and dramatic lips worthy of an Almodóvar heroine.

La-Perla-Fall-2013-presentation1

For La Perla’s Black Label collection, which referenced mysterious themes including erotic art and surrealism, Lee switched the focus from the lips to the eyes. “The second look is a fresh take on the classic smoky eye, featuring a blend of black and brown kohl liner,” she says. “There are no harsh lines, it’s a softer interpretation that showcases beautiful, almond-shaped eyes.”

Lee has a mixmaster approach to makeup: To imbue skin with a multi-dimensional luminescence, she combined three different shades of Hourglass foundation, concealer, and finishing powder. As for the scene-stealing scarlet lip, she blended two shades of Hourglass Femme Rouge® Velvet Crème Lipstick. “It was one part Icon and three parts Raven,” she says. “The mixture of blue red and orange red makes for an opulent and regal fall statement.”

LOOK ONE: La Perla Collection

SKIN: Prep with No. 28 Primer Serum. Follow with Veil Fluid Makeup in three shades: Porcelain, Ivory and Honey. “I use the deepest shade to contour, the lightest shade to highlight and the matching shade for the rest of the skin,” says Lee. Repeat the process with Hidden® Corrective Concealer in three shades: Fair, Natural and Tan. Finish up with the Ambient® Lighting Powder in three shades: Radiant Light (golden beige), Dim Light (neutral beige) and Luminous Light (champagne pearl). “Blending the three powders creates an exceptional glow.”

EYES: Augment brows with the Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette. Next, line the eyes with Film Noir® Kohl Eye Pencil in Espresso, and apply the mauve shimmer shade from Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Exhibition to the lids. “To create a watery effect, I like to dampen my brush with a little No. 28 Primer Serum,” says Lee. “Unlike using water, the shadow never really dries down.” Finish with a few coats of Film Noir® Full Spectrum Mascara.

LIPS: Apply Femme Rouge® Velvet Crème Lipstick in Raven and Icon. “I melted the shades together and applied the new color with a lip brush,” says Lee. “Although vibrant, it’s not an especially sharp shape. It’s still fresh, delicate and elegant.”

Hourglass At The Golden Globes

One’s an English beauty and the other’s a Californian bombshell, but Emily Blunt and Jessica Alba had at least one thing in common at the 70th Golden Globe Awards—they both wore makeup by Hourglass.

2013 Golden Globes

In a gilded dress by Michael Kors, Blunt more than lived up to her reputation as a Hollywood golden girl. The actress, nominated for Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, “definitely had something in mind as far as the look,” says makeup artist Jenn Streicher. “Emily wanted smoky eyes paired with soft pink lips that echoed her Lorraine Schwartz ruby earrings.” Meanwhile, Alba, a presenter at the awards ceremony, was resplendent in a coral gown by Oscar de la Renta. “The dress was the inspiration for the look,” says makeup artist Lauren Andersen. “I loved the contrast between her glowing skin and the matte orange lip. It’s an almost tropical pop of color that’s not an exact match for the dress but close.” Here are all the details on their looks by Hourglass:
