Met Ball 2013 Makeup: Mindy Kaling

=&0=&’s the reason I look forward to Tuesday nights and I know that Mindy Lahiri would be elated that her doppelganger brought her A-game for the Met Ball. Doesn’t she look PHENOM?  Mindy’s Lela Rose dress and the Met Gala’s punk theme inspired =&1=& to give Mindy an bold, edgy purple lip. Andersen kept the rest of Mindy’s makeup subtle and soft to maintain the balance of the overall look and the focus on Kaling’s pout. Here, the products Anderson used to get the makeup look.  Face: =&2=&, MAC Powder Blush in Blunt Eyes: Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow – Mirifique No. 85, =&3=&, Shu Uemura Eye Lashes, =&4=& and Votre Vu Brow Definer Lip: =&5=&=&6=&

Mindy Kaling’s Hairstyle & Makeup: 2012 Emmys

=&0=&looked gorge last night at the Emmys. Have you SEEN her new show =&1=& yet? I’ve seen it On Demand more than 4 times. It’s genius. Here, the deets on her hair and makeup looks. 

Stylist Luke Chamberlain created her flowing hairstyle last night. To compliment the 70’s, drapey feel of Mindy’s  St. John gown, stylist Luke Chamberlain drew his inspiration from style icon Bianca Jagger. Staying away from anything too rough in texture, the key was to achieve a soft and romantic look through voluminous hair that would complement the romantic gown. Here’s how to get the look, straight from Luke.

1.  Started with damp hair, applied Matrix  Biolage Volumizing Mousse section by section throughout
2. Added a small amount of Biolage ExquisiteOil Replenishing Treatment, later blow dried the hair with a medium boar bristle round brush sealing in the oil and mousse achieving healthy body with tons of shine

3. Used a 1” barrel curling iron wrapping it in a figure eight pattern  continuing this techinique with all sections throughout the hair, later placing the curls in 1 inch velcro curlers while allowing to cool
4.  Removed the rollers and brushed out the hair creating lush and voluminous waves
5. Finished off the look with Matrix Total Results Amplify Hairspray to lock in volume for the rest of the night
